Good Morning Texts and other amazing things about online dating!

Good Morning Boys and Girls!!


Today in the Land of Tara things are pretty amazing!  I am exhausted but really happy!   This morning I woke up to two amazing texts.

The first was from a dear friend of mine and she and her husband have had a beautiful baby girl with the most adorable chubby cheeks.  I am over the moon that they have had a little future spark and I am already thinking about spark activities in case momma wants to run a sparks unit when its time (that’s like 5 years for you folks not in the know hahahaha).

The second text was from Mr. Seattle, you may remember that I wrote about him a few weeks ago and how I was conflicted because I said NO LONG DISTANCE but then ended up talking to him and he is sweet and handsome and seems to be smart!  ANYHOOO….he messages me this morning and says:
 
 Can you say stupid grin and ridiculous girly giggles…..

We frequently don’t get to talk during the day but he almost always texts to see how my day was, to say good night and to say good morning.   Occasionally our lunches overlap and we can talk.   Oh man what have I gotten myself into…J

Okay boys and girls gather round….it’s time for your favourite part of the day!!  It’s update time!!!
Does everyone have a comfy seat?  Good…
Dutch – got back in touch with me and asked me if I would let him accompany him to a private event I have been invited too….LMAO.  I said no sorry I would prefer not to go with a stranger.  Funny haven’t heard from him since.

Stretch – sent me a message saying he was very sorry and recognized what he did was super rude.   He had some last minute business to deal with regarding his home.  He acknowledged that he should have texted me even if he realized it after we were supposed to meet.   I appreciate the effort but Ciao!

Rico – we had a very short date, but it was really nice and he has asked for another one so we are hoping to see each other next week after my crazy week is over(did I tell you I am working TEDtalks this week?  So fun!)

Thirsty – we had a super fun time, he gave me a great kiss at the end of the date and said he couldn’t wait to see me again.  Sent me a few text messages later that evening and then POOOOF…gone, I did a bit of cyber stalking and I am sad to say I think he was married!   WTF DUDE???????   I don’t know for sure but I am pretty sure.

Mr. Engineer – popped back onto the scene, he has been pretty stressed and maxed with work, which I can totally understand.   He wants to go for Taco’s….it like he knows me!

Mr. Poly  - is as sweet and amazing as ever and I think I have lucked into an amazing new friend at the very least.  Our schedules have not meshed lately but I hope to see him again soon.

Last but not least….

Let’s all welcome Mr. Adam’s to the table.    He and I had a phenomenal date and are going on another one this weekend.  He is in a situation much like Mr. Poly so in the end it may end up only being friends but right now we are really enjoying hanging out together.

As I was writing this list out, I was starting to feel like I should feel bad about how long the list is…and it doesn’t include the people that so far I have just been chatting with.    But then I realized something….

I DON”T GIVE A SHIT WHAT PEOPLE THINK!!!!!!

Is there something wrong with dating casually?  I am very open with people about the fact that I am open to the possibility of a real love but that right now I am looking for friends and activity partners that maybe like to make out a little hehehhe.  

I feel like I have this little voice inside that says but wait you should just go on one date and then see if it’s a match and if not move on, doesn’t it take more than that to build a relationship?   CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW TIME CONSUMING IT WOULD BE???????

But then I have that bigger voice in my head that says, who cares….if I am open and honest about my intentions and am not leading anyone to think we are in a solitary monogamous dating situation then it’s not hurting anyone right?  I know that most of these guys are doing the same thing….because we talk about it, novel idea right.

Okay I have to go grab my bus to work or I will be late!!!

Arrivederci,

T

Ps…I want to hear your dating stories,….send them in!  I have two great dating stories so far, send me a few more and I will do another post!
OR…. want to do a guest blog post from another perspective?  Let’s get this conversation started!

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:







If…

Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

FabFitFun Fall 2017 - Spoilers

Its been awhile dear readers but I am back in the land of the english speakers (i have been for almost a month sorry!!!!)
I was trying to get some time in with the handsome man in my life, get my house in order and get back on track with work after a month away, so of course i got SICK!!  YAY.    I will have lots of pictures and some stories to share with you all who are not on my facebook.  
But first I want to tell you about the one and only subscription box I keep around (even when money is tight).  This is my gift to me as an incentive to keep working hard on being a bigger, badder, sexier, stronger - more healthy version of myself.
I have reviewed a few boxes but for those who don't know, FabFitFun is a lifestyle box filled with full size (and occaional travel size) products that are focused on keeping you fabulous, fit and having fun.  I am so excited about this next box that I have to share with you the spoilers we have been given.
I have been able to choose a few items tha…
