10% Happier by Dan Harris (Amazon.com)

This past week, I finished up reading 10% Happier by Dan Harris. As I’ve previously mentioned, I am in the works of planning my 2015 Adventure to Bliss. One of my wishes is to explore what happiness means to different people and why. My list of books to read is now at 26 for the new year – and I’m certain it will grow. Although, I’ll be honest, I’m not sure when I last read (for pleasure) that much… maybe… Read more »

The Happiness Project Book Cover Courtesy of Open Table

Gretchin Rubin can just go ahead and be permentently on my list of “inspirational writers.” On the recommendation of a fellow-blogger, I just recently (FINALLY) finished her (arguably) most popular work, “The Happiness Project.” Wow. I’ll be honest, I have tried reading this book many times. In fact, according to Amazon, I’ve had the book since January of 2012. And I literally just finished it this past weekend. So what was different this time? I honestly think it was just… Read more »

Lean In by Sheryl Sandburg Image Courtesy of leanin.org

As Facebook’s COO and mother of two, Sheryl Sandburg knows what it means to be busy. She is a hard worker and, honestly she’s inspirational. In her book, Lean In, Sheryl makes it clear that change is needed for women in the workplace. In fact, change is really needed for everyone in the workplace (and at home). She emphasizes the importance of working towards a world where women and men spend half of their time focused on their careers and… Read more »

Opperation Petticoat Movie Cover Courtesy of Google Images

Today’s topic? Movies! Classic movies! If you keep up with My Life In Snippets, you know that I feel (along with many others) that I came from another era… In fact, my sister has said before that I’m a mix of 25 and 95 – an old soul. I grew up listening to music that my parents loved as young-in’s (back in the fifties and early sixties). The movies I watched were all based during this era – or back… Read more »

Bourbon Tasting

Kentucky is the number one seller and producer of bourbon in the world. Hence, in my move to Kentucky, I had to learn more. If you’ve never been to a Bourbon distillery, you simply cannot fathom the process and set standard of ingredients that go into bourbon. I’m serious. I used to look at a bottle of Evan Williams and think, oh, that’s just another form of liquor…cool (thick sarcasm)! But really, bourbon has a really neat history and after… Read more »

Fitbit Logo

If you didn’t know, I’m the proud owner of a Fitbit One. I love it. So, what is it? Fitbit is a company that produces fitness trackers and devices. I’ve had my Fitbit One for a little over a year, and prior to that I had the Fitbit Force for a while. The Force has been discontinued do to a rash/burn it produced on very few people (myself included). That’s okay, though as they have an entirely new set of… Read more »

Inside Out Movie Cover

*This post may contain SPOILERS* So, yesterday – my other half and I decided to go and see Inside Out. You might be thinking, oh that’s that kid movie…I’m here to tell you that Inside Out is for kids AND for adults. The creators at Disney and Pixar did an absolutely fabulous job making this movie – oh and the actors (voices) – on point. So, what made us go? Well, it opened at approximately $91.1 million – making it… Read more »

Book covers for The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect

Please note: I try to avoid spoilers at all costs…but they may still appear in the review for the two books listed, above. Be warned! Apologies!Graeme Simsion recently published The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect. My initial reaction to the bright and (in my opinion) neat looking covers, followed by an impressive star rating on Amazon and an intriguing book description all led me to download the two to my Kindle.Within the first few pages of The Rosie Project,… Read more »

Mussels From Mussel and Burger Bar Image

Located right on Taylorsville Road in Louisville, KY is the Mussel and Burger Bar. Coming in with a 4.6 star rating on Google and over 8,000 likes on Facebook, it clearly doesn’t need to be said that this review will be a positive one.When I first heard the name, I questioned it’s level of fanciness – a burger bar? I pictured a small, dark, possibly dingy place with mediocre burgers and mussels that weren’t up to par – a place… Read more »

Pinterest Icon

If you own a device that can have apps installed onto it, I’m sure you’re well aware of the vast number of apps available out there. There is literally an app for everything (or so it feels). Now, it may come as a surprise to those of you who know how much I enjoy exploring the world of technology, but I don’t utilize very many apps. In this post, I’ll be sharing my top 5 (top 5 in the sense that I… Read more »
