Life Lessons By Sar

Hello again blogging world! It's good to finally see you since it's been a while. I've been currently running at the speed of light, that's why you haven't seen me much. But today, I'm back.

When you blog & then don't for a while, it's really hard to "find your voice" once again. So the first thing that popped into my mind when I started typing this was to tile it, "Life Lessons By Sar." Some of you may not know that I talk to myself-- often. I blame it on the fact that I'm an only child & needed a friend when I was growing up. So when I talk to myself, I refer to myself as "Sar." And there you have it-- Life Lessons By Sar.

Since I've been running at the speed of light, here are some life lessons that I've learned recently.


Take your allergy meds. 
I know Oklahoma is known for having some of the worst allergies in the country, but seriously my allergies have been worse than ever this year. I think I sneezed 1,209,367 times on Saturday alone. That might be an exaggeration. But nonetheless, Flonase has been my BFF these days.

When online shopping, don't just assume that a "discount website" is truly the lowest discount you can get.
I've found this out a lot lately. Story #1: I get emails every day from & delete the majority of them. But some days I scroll through to see if I should blow my money on something I don't need from them. Well I saw they had a deal for the famous "Volcano" candle that's clearly every blogger's favorite. I clicked on it & found out to my surprise that I could buy it from Anthropologie, I repeat, ANTHROPOLOGIE (aka the most expensive store on the planet) cheaper. Turns out, removed that deal because people complained. And being the savvy shopper that I am, I knew that they were about to rip a ton of people off the moment I saw the price.

Story #2: Andrew & I have been trying to find a new area rug for our living room because the one we bought when we first got married is just too small. So I've been looking around for a while to try to find a good deal on a stylish rug. I found one I really liked on Wayfair & was seriously about to purchase it when I decided to browse around none other than....... Walmart. And if anyone knows me, I utterly despise Walmart (Target is my main squeeze). But while I was surfing Walmart's rug section on their website, I found the EXACT SAME RUG that Wayfair had for over $60 less. Holy guacamole, I bought that rug from Walmart faster than you can say "Mississippi."

So bottom line, don't always trust discount websites (even Amazon!).

Life is better with a clean house.
I hate cleaning, but I love it after I do it. Everything smells better & I feel like the world (or maybe just my home) is a better place.

A cup of coffee a day keeps the doctor away.
I don't really know if it's true, but all I'm saying is that if I live to be 110, you all will know that's how I did it.

Cuddling with a dog = Fulfilling life.
Enough said.

And there you have it folks. A few life lessons for your Monday. Have a great week!

Do you have any life lessons you'd like to share?


  1. life will be better if there is a balance between us.

  2. Yes, the clean house thing. There is just no better feeling and I despise cleaning too. Crazy about the discounts you can get on the exact same items where you'd least expect it!
