It's been four plus years since I've done calligraphy. Most of the letters are rough, but I am proud of that K in Shakespeare. I'll have to pick more phrases to practice, writing the alphabet is too boring. Also need a guide with capital letters. If they're different. I don't remember. #caligraphy #shakespeare #practicepracticepractice

Why did they have to take Animaniacs off of Netflix? Slappy is my spirit animal. #animaniacs #slappythesquirrel #spiritanimal #dontringmydoorbell

This lady is one of my favorite people. She's just happy as can be and is just the stereotypical grandma. Yet she's decided that she loves purple so much that she has her daughter dye her hair different purples. Every Sunday she says something hilarious in Bible class. This week pastor made a comment of "in a few years..." and her immediate response was "will I be alive for it?" 😂😂😂 She was so happy to take a picture with me. I hope if God grants me the years she's had, that I will be like Mrs. Tates. #purplehair #hilariousladies #lifegoals

Got to spend some quality time with my Aunt Kellie. I love her so much. She always took me places as a kid, so revisting that was great. We laughed about diets and men, and all the trials of adulthood. The Glendale Chocolate Affair was pretty cool, but the best part was being with her. Though chocolate covered cheesecake and frybread taco were pretty great. #auntietime #bonding #chocolate #frybread

I still remember this day, seven years ago. Surgery number 4; new round of doctors, tests, and questions. I was still in the hospital days after surgery, not because I wasn't healing, but because they couldn't figure out what was going on. I was hopped up on pain meds, ridiculous amounts of antibiotics (which eventually sent me back to the hospital), and interrupted sleep. I wasn't able to shower, or even leave my room much. Then my seestor showed up with some dry shampoo and a loving heart and set to work on making me feel human again. I don't know exactly how long it took, but it was a while. It's really amazing how the little acts of kindness stick with you. #throwback #crmo #crmowarrior #surgery #kindness #hospitalstay #picline

Finally got a frame for my Briar Rose print by @briannacherrygarcia . I managed to break the frame trying to get the back off, but that's the dollar store for ya. Still, the team suits it well. Now, to hang it. #art #disneyart #digitalart #briarrose #sleepingbeauty

Soup ended up kinda bland and brothy, so I called my grandma because she makes her own soups. Turns out, corn starch is a great way to thicken it a bit. Grandmas, they're geniuses. #soup #recipefail #cornstarch #grandma #whenindoubtcallgrandma #noreallyicanactuallycooksomegreatstuff #ijusttrynewideasandhavetoworkoutthekinks

Trying my hand at cooking from scratch. An adapted Sicillian chicken soup (like the one from Carabbas) recipe. Noodles to be added later. Probably should have started it before 6 30. Oh well. I will give it a real taste tomorrow. #housewifeskills #exceptimnotmarried #soup #cookingfromscratch #sicillianchickensoup #carrabassoup

Found these this weekend while going through boxes in my room. The right cup is part of a collection of Norman Rockwell mugs, the left is hand painted. We're pretty sure these belonged to my grandmother, who died back in 2012. She was a big fan of Norman Rockwell according to my dad, and the bottom of the cup says '64, the year my dad was born. Maybe it was made for my dad's birth, maybe one of his older siblings made it. I'll have to ask my grandfather about it next time I see him... #familykeepsakes #familymemories #mugs #normanrockwell

21 year difference. Myself at approximately 4, Em in her preschool picture, age 4. She's not my twin, but there are definitely some similarities. #comparison #auntielife #littlemiss #adorablekids #lovemy90soutfit

Breakfast burritos for the week and goat cheese and tomato stuffed mushrooms. Cooked the stuffed mushrooms a little long, but otherwise delicious #foodprep #stuffedmushrooms #breakfastburritos

My family has always celebrated Christmas Eve more than Christmas day. The tree was overflowing with presents, our family spent hours laughing, eating, and drinking, and Tyler and I even had some egg nog. A wonderful Christmas Eve, to be sure. Merry Christmas to you all, with love from the Conklins. #christmaseve #presents #conklinfamily #eggnog #love #laughter #andafewhilariouslyinappropriategifts #churchfamily

Ertha Kitt's "Santa Baby" is one of my absolute favorite Christmas songs. But today my brain couldn't think of anything but Yzma singing it 😂😂😂😂 I have no idea who drew this, I got it from Pinterest and it wouldn't go back to the original source. #christmassongs #santababy #erthakitt #yzma #emperorsnewgroove #disneymovies

Wrapping skills on point. My family all know that I'm terrible at wrapping, we laugh about it every year. I couldn't find a big enough bag for this, so it'll have to do. It wasn't going to be a surprise anyways; I've bought my brother a popcorn tin for Christmas for at least 5 years. #wrappingskillsonpoint #cantwrap #christmaspresents #theothersdontlookmuchbetter

I stayed home today. Depression and emotional exhaustion got to me. It's hard to explain how it feels. The closest I can come up with is that I'm tired. I feel like I weigh a thousand pounds. I'm empty of every kind of feeling, even things like drive,which really isn't an emotion. It feels like my brain isn't connected to my body. I can tell myself to get up, but I don't move. So I took a day. I didn't do much, but I did make dinner, which I actually enjoy, I'm just usually exhausted. People always talk about big steps with Depression, but those are daunting. It's the little things that keep you grounded, keep you alive. Embrace the small, the mundane, the everyday. It's beautiful. #depression #silverlinings #littlethings #homemadepizza #minestheloadedone

Oh Hayley, you've always had the best meaningful lyrics. Now with the "emo" lyrics juxtaposed against pop sound, it is even better. #paramore #hayleywilliams #fakehappy #lasthope #howimfeelingtoday

I finally bought a print from one of my favorite artists, @briannacherrygarcia. I love this drawing of Briar Rose! Ignore the random stuff in the corners, it came rolled in a tube so I had to stick stuff on the corners for the picture. Now I just need a frame to put it in ❤️❤️❤️ #briarrose #briannacherrygarcia #art #disneyart #perfection #happy

Day of freebies at work. Too bad I misread the signs and emails and ended up wandering the whole campus before I found the hot dogs. #worklife #freebies #alwayssayyestofreefood #hotdog #starbucks #lays #sprite
