food revolution friday

April 30, 2010

If you’ve been watching Jamie Oliver’s new Food Revolution series, you’ve seen him shining a light on the way we as Americans eat.  It’s an interesting show, and that guy is really very focused on his goal.  I enjoy watching him take on some of the hard headed stubbornness that is rampant across our country- [...]

i hated p90x

April 26, 2010

Yup… hated it. I know, I know, in the first month post I was all “Woo Hoo!  Look at me!” Month two demonstrated how skilled I am in the art of justification, regardless of reason. Now month three is done and I appreciate your kindness in letting me just quietly sweep it under the rug. There [...]

ode to ken

April 22, 2010

True Story. My roommate, Ken, says to me one night, “Kyle, I’ve been thinking about your blog.  And I think you need to have an Ode to Ken.”  I ask what he suggests, and inquire as to if he’s actually been reading my blog.  His response?  ”Sure!  Parts?!” The following is word for word what [...]

I quickly realized the only way I could avoid situations like that again was to NOT go into another job where my success was directly tied to the purchasing power of individuals and/or [...]

This weekend I plan to play a bit with the themes, layouts and overall look of That Girl Kyle. I apologize if you’re familiar with the site and are aggravated with all the changes, or if you are a first time visitor and this all seems a bit disjointed and out of sorts. Your patience [...]

summertime to-do list

April 9, 2010

Remember this past winter when folks that lived in the south had seriously harsh cold weather?  My friends in Florida were piling on the pj’s with footies, and my cousin in Texas was posting photos on Facebook of her frozen garden fountain… and a bunch of people in Washington were making themselves look like idiots [...]

how’d i get so SMRT?

April 5, 2010

Grocery shopping to me is a hobby.  Maybe you could even call it a leisure activity.  Simply put, I love it.  List or no list, I can wander those aisles aimlessly for hours, any time of day, regardless of how busy the store is.  Wegmans has always been a fav of mine, and visiting my [...]
