Life-Inside Out

Only Thursday!?

Happy first of June!! It’s a BIG month for birthdays in my family. My momma, brother in law, nephew and husband! All within a week and a half! Not to mention Father’s Day!!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already know that I skipped out of work on Monday, it was just so gorgeous I couldn’t stand sitting in a cubicle all day staring out the window.  Turns out, it was a smart plan! The rest of the week has been raining and cool. The sun is shining right this very second though, I should take a picture!

I’m normally a pretty happy, positive person but I’m telling you… today was A DAY. It’s amazing how one person can just ruin your day by being a “see you next tuesday” (I hate, hate that word fyi) and my favourite part is my boss lets her get away with  it!! Thank goodness she’s on vacation tomorrow and all next week or I just don’t know. I just don’t.

So I had plans to come home and relax with some of the very beautiful candles I got from Flickering Fandoms (book and TV/movie tie in candles). Sadly, Leia’s Buns(cinnamon buns scent) was melted so bad that it reformed upside down and OTP- One True Pear-ing (juicy pear)was smashed to smithereens. Thankfully Jess, the owner, is AMAZING and will be sending out replacements on Monday. Hooray! My other two Lorelai’s Coffee (coffee, vanilla, cream liquor) and Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust (green apple, peach, dew rose, water lily, cedar, sandalwood, musk) are fine and amazing and I can’t wait to burn them. Go check out my Instagram for photos.

I clipped Sophie’s claws yesterday, she acted like I was murdering her which made for an awesome experience. Fenix is fine with her pawdicures… I dunno what’s wrong with Sophie. She cray-cray. I’ve tried wrapping her in a blanket and she always gets a treat after. Anyone have any tips on lessening her stress level?

TGIF tomorrow and I’m pretty certain we’re having sushi for our work lunch. We do it every Friday and tend to swap between Danny’s Wun Tun (bbq pork, wun tun & noodle in soup) and GoGo Sushi (salmon roll add cream cheese, California roll/sunshine roll).  Matt refuses to eat any sort of seafood, so I usually only get sushi on Friday lunches.

Let’s end the week on a high note!

Life-Inside Out

Isn’t she lovely…

Hello Friends!

This is my first post from my new laptop! I am SO excited to have it, you have no idea. My other laptop (HP netbook) took a half hour to load the internet. Not Cool. So in honor of my lovely new toy, I thought we would do a little get to know you Q&A.

1. Who are you named after? 

Hmm I seem to recall a story about a movie with either the lead actress’s name being Jenna or the character she played being Jenna. Either way, my mom liked the name and here I am!

2. Do you like your handwriting?

Not at all. I tend to rush as my brain works way faster than my hands can write. It gets very sloppy, very fast and I apologize to  my pen pals! (let me know if you want me to start typing letters haha)

3. What is your favorite lunch meat?

Turkey, without a doubt but I will definitely chow down on a roast beef sandwich if the opportunity arises.

4. Longest relationship? 

Current one. We’ve been together almost nine years now and married nearly four.


5. Do you still have your tonsils?

Yes! I don’t a have my gallbladder though just in case you cared 😉

6. Would you bungee jump? 

I have! Years and years ago, I probably wouldn’t do it now though

7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

Depends on the shoe. If they are new or impossible to get off without unlacing them, then yes. If they  are nicely broken in or old,  I kick those mofos off and  never mind the consequences.

8. Favorite ice cream?

Either Ben & Jerry’s “Cherry Garcia” or Nestlé “Crème Brûlée” my choice depends on two factors: 1) How much cash do I have? and 2) How much ice cream do I want to consume?


9. What is the first thing you notice about people?

Usually their teeth. I have this thing with teeth and I find it very hard to talk to people with  gnarly grillz (yah, I just did that)

10. Football or baseball? 

Baseball. I played softball for ten years (back catcher and left field) so I kind of have a bias.


11. What color pants are you wearing? 

Black yoga pants. I’m at home after a long day of work and don’t plan on leaving the house, so it’s ok.

12. Last thing you ate?

Macaroni & Cheese!

13. If you were a crayon what color would you be?

Hmm. A pretty aqua or a vibrant pink.

14. Favorite smell?

Bath and Bodyworks candles in “Salted Caramel” or “Pumpkin Caramel  Latte“. Or else Frost Beard Studio’s Le Cirque des Rêves” candle.

15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?

Oh my gosh. Not counting work I don’t tend to talk on the phone. It was probably my momma though.

16. Hair color? 

Brown with some caramel highlights

17. Eye color?


18. Favorite foods to eat?

Cupcakes, macarons, Jazz apples, pizza, watermelon, gummy bears,  celery and peanut butter, bagels & cream cheese…

19. Scary movies or happy endings? 

Happy endings! I don’t watch scary movies, they give me nightmares. It’s bad because Matt loves scary movies.

20. Last movie you watched? 

I hate to admit it but… Fifty Shades Darker. It was bad, but better than the first one which isn’t saying much. The only thing that made this movie bearable was the lovely company I  saw it with (Lisa & Stephanie <3)

21. Favorite holiday? 

I love Christmas and I have ever since I can remember. I would (read: still do) stay up all night watching movies and drinking hot chocolate.

22. Beer or wine? 

Wine. White or Rosé.

23. Night owl or early bird?

Night Owl!! I’m an insomniac too.

24. Favorite day of the week? 

Probably Saturday because you don’t have to go to work and you still have one more day off!

25: Which three of your favorite bloggers do you want to know more about? 

I want to know more about a lot of people – so I’m not going to nominate.

I’d love to read everyone’s response. So, if you want to fill out the questions and post them, make sure you let me know in the comments so I can go read them.
