Best 10 Minutes: Athleisure (or How Lindsey Apparently Never Gave Up Wearing Dance Clothes Even After No Longer Dancing)

How’s that for a title, eh? In reality though, I had an epiphany today. Ever since the pandemic started, I’ve essentially lived in athleisure. Seriously lived in it. I’ve worn jeans maaaybe 5 times, and this is only my second time wearing denim shorts this year. You know what athleisure wear is really, really similarContinue reading “Best 10 Minutes: Athleisure (or How Lindsey Apparently Never Gave Up Wearing Dance Clothes Even After No Longer Dancing)”

Best 10 Minutes: Laundry

When I was growing up, folding laundry was in my chores lineup from the time I started middle school, I think. I imagine it probably coincided with the time I started wearing bras, and my dad chose to nope right out of folding clothes that weren’t his and Mom’s as a result. So it’s somethingContinue reading “Best 10 Minutes: Laundry”

Best 10 Minutes: Millennial Edition

My fellow millennials, I have some news that might come as a shock to some of us. We’re middle-aged. I’ll give you a minute to pick your jaw up off the floor. God knows I needed to do so, too. The middle ages Granted, wikipedia might define middle aged as starting at 45, but let’sContinue reading “Best 10 Minutes: Millennial Edition”

Channeling My Inner Rich Mom

You see the jokes all over social lately about how we need to embrace this year as a “warm girl summer” instead of a hot girl summer. Or why it is we should ignore any and all of our self-doubts and just get in the pool. Et cetera, so on and so forth. In thatContinue reading “Channeling My Inner Rich Mom”

Brand Advocate or Just a Decent Human?

As Shakespeare wrote in Juliet’s soliloquy, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.” Sorry to say it, Juliet, but you’re 14 (and imaginary) so you don’t get it, but names are kind of a big deal. If you’re sitting there saying to yourself, “ThisContinue reading “Brand Advocate or Just a Decent Human?”

Fighting with My Body

I thoroughly dislike when my body doesn’t do what I want it to do. Part of the control-freak nature of being a dancer (at heart, because let’s be honest – I haven’t actually danced since having Caiden 6 years ago). So we’ve been fighting quite a bit lately. From my fingertips going numb randomly, toContinue reading “Fighting with My Body”

Sending a Little Love Your Way

We’re officially over a year into the panda (aka pandemic) now. And while Ricky and I are fully vaccinated, not everyone is so life still isn’t “back to normal.” While we’re still not eating in restaurants or going to see movies in theaters, we’ll get there eventually. Especially with the vaccine rollout gaining steam. InContinue reading “Sending a Little Love Your Way”

When I was Brave, Not Perfect

A while back, I applied for a new role in my org. It was a major step up in title and responsibilities, but with my tenure at the health system combined with my past experiences, I could definitely rock it. It wasn’t the next logical career step, but I went for it anyway. The otherContinue reading “When I was Brave, Not Perfect”
