Welcome, My Little Love Bunnies

Woman approaches 50 and an empty nest.

Hello there my little love bunnies. I’m c.a. Marks and I’m the Head Love Bunny around here.

Someone once gave me a piece of advice regarding Inspiration and I’ve tried to live by it ever since. It goes like this, "I discovered that Inspiration is fleeting and you can’t wait for her to come to you when it’s convenient. When she shows up you have to wrestle that b!tch to the ground and choke every thing you can out of her!" ~wickedmess

Here, I will attempt to baptize the ordinary and mundane with my very own vein of levity.

VLOG #8 – Movies, Books, and Sugar

So here is this week’s VLOG. I seriously need to write scripts and rehearse for these things. I’m terrible at VLOGGING! Before I get rolling on the camera, I know exactly what I want to say but as soon as it starts I’m like, “uh, well, um….” and my incessant blinking is driving me crazy. Of course, I don’t realize I am doing it when I am doing it. But watching myself on video is excruciatingly painful for me.

Getting on a CrossFit Schedule

My schedule has been kind of messed up lately and it has been my fault. Lately, I’ve been really tired. I’ve been slacking on attending CrossFit classes. There was one week I went four days in a row and then I felt terrible so then I took a week off. Trying to find the balance has been difficult.

My First Overstock Purchase, Shoes

Stilettos, New York Transit brand, Swiftswagger

If you are like me, you have a favorite pair of go-to shoes for any outfit, right? I know I do. It’s only been recent that I found a favorite pair of shoes, at Stein Mart. They are called New York Transit – Swift Swagger. They are not expensive and I love them. However, I’ve only had them for a few months and already I have worn down that little black thing on the heel. I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS.

Creative, Compelling Content and Why I Blog

c.a. Marks, Head Love Bunny

Every Sunday at 8:00pm central time, I try to participate in Mack Collier’s #blogchat on Twitter. Mack Collier is the author of Think Like a Rock Star and he is a social media strategist, trainer and speaker located in Alabama.

Mack and I met “online” several several years ago. I don’t know where or how or why but our paths crossed somewhere along the internet highway. It was back when I was young and immature and certainly before social media was around.

cajun dinner rolls 6

Yay, I have finally gotten to the point of where I have everything already stocked in the kitchen. No special trips to the grocery store. I had the almond flour, flaxseed flour, and the Xanthan gum on hand as well as all of the other ingredients. I can probably thank The Gent for having all the other ingredients such as cayenne pepper, onion and garlic powder. He’s the cook in our house anyway.

My Nora Ephron Stash

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a huge fan of Nora Ephron’s work. I have blogged about her a few times. And when she died, I was heartbroken. Nora Ephron is the epitome of what I wanted to be. But there was, and can be, only one Nora Ephron. I will always admire and adore her.
