Life Lately | Arthritis Blog {via}

Reading… Do audio books count as “reading”?  I think they do and they are great for commuters, especially when you have access to your public library…which i now do! So, I’m “reading” Gone Girl.

Watching…probably too much. But some of my summer favorites: The Last Ship (pretty interesting given the Ebola outbreak!) and Extant (amazing with Halle Berry). Some of my long time summer favorites are Falling Skies, Covert Affairs, and Royal Pains.

Excited about…the upcoming weekend. 4 day weekend for me!! I’m going to Maine, a BBQ, oh and the fact that i hit over 300 followers on Instagram. Super excited! Come follow me. :)

Working on…gardening. The weather has been in the mid-70s as of late and we’re really taking advantage of the nice weather to be outside. Once the weather turns, we’ll be updating the inside of the house.

Making me happy…temporary tattoos or the thought of them. cooler weather. sunflowers. boots. nail wraps.

Frustrated with…my health. it’s been a struggle for the last few weeks. I’m really proud of the fact that I ran 4 times last week and biked twice but I’m still dealing with some indigestion issues. I’m keeping a food diary and really watching what I’m eating. So, we’ll see.

Missing…Robin Williams.

Dreaming of…football season. I CAN’T WAIT!!

Walk to CURE Arthritis



Sorry for the lack of posts and communication. Last Tuesday I experienced an arthritis flare which lasted over 96 hours. I experienced pain in my left hip, lower back and for the first time in my left shoulder, left elbow, neck, and my jaw. This is the longest a flare has lasted since my diagnosis 14 years ago.


Now, if you know me, I’m pretty extremely stoic, so expressing my pain is difficult for me. However, its just one more reason as to why I’m raising funds to find a CURE. I’m not cured of arthritis and and this flare definitely proves that I’m far from it. Please take a moment and make a donation to my fundraising page for Arthritis Foundation’s signature event “Walk to Cure Arthritis”. I’m 31 days away from my walk and I’ve raised 69% of my goal. I’m doing everything I can to make a BIG impact on the disease. I’d love it if you could make a donation.

Here’s a video I created to show you why its so important to me! :)
