While on an adventure in Chicago, I visited my friend Kaitlyn. Over margaritas and getting chatted up about our awesome shoes from men adorned in dresses while having beards, Kaitlyn and I began to chat about our color auras. She took an online quiz and had a laugh about her results.
Kaitlyn: a very organized, on-time, yet fun loving and super sarcastic gal was green and tan.
TAN?? I said. So funny! It seems like such a boring color and she is the opposite of boring. So I decide to take the test too.
My results were yellow and a side of abstract tan. What in the world..once back home, I looked at a sliver of a day in the life of a CourTney, and then it all makes sense.
What the fuck is Abstract Tan?
I am very organized, but getting to the end result is a bit different than for most. I dated a boy who once called me a tornado….I’m sure my mom would agree.

I think dieting is bullshit. I am under the belief that my body knows what it needs: I crave it. Then I eat it. Sometimes that might be pineapple for a solid week, sometimes celery for breakfast and pancakes for dinner. As long as I eat lots of colors (no sprinkle doughnuts sadly do NOT count) I feel that I’m in good shape.
This winter has been a chilly one! So instead of hating the snow, go play in it and have a “Winter Time Adventure!” as my friend, RBK would say.

Today is a snowy snow day. I thought….what better way to warm up then with a good ‘ol cup of Joe! Except making coffee in my house is not as simple as opening a new can of Maxwell House, but it’s a well worthwhile journey. There is something about making coffee that I find relaxing and I just wanted to share that relaxing feeling on a snowy day.
Why does divorce have to cause everyone to be a debbie downer? I say we change the way people look at break-ups and start celebrating the fact that two people can decide to love each other without being with each other.
What better way to do this than with a party?! Come on guys and gals. Get your party hats on and let’s plan together.
Sometimes life gets messy and my life currently is: A. Mess.
So, it’s time for me to start cleaning it up. In order to get through the chaos, I have to assign myself “projects” just like I’m back in middle school – where learning was something that is forced upon you because you had no interest in doing it if you were left to your own devices.
