Extra Elle



I thought I'd do a quick little post to catch y'all up on my life lately-- think of it as Extra Elle in expanded form. Let me know what you think:




  • My sister's dog of 10 years had to be put down the morning of her son's birthday party. The kids didn't find out until yesterday, but it made for a bittersweet weekend. He was a great friend and he is going to be so missed. My heart goes out to my nephew and my sister, especially.

  • I post A LOT of links for articles I think you'll like on my blog's Facebook page. Give it a like and let me know what you think. There's beauty, food, life, home, travel, etc. Lots of good stuff!


  • I am not a big tv watcher, but recently had to upgrade my cable box and internet--supposed to be faster, but it's not. One channel I have is MTV Classic--they play a lot of 90s videos and tv shows. It's fun to leave on while I'm working.

  • Speaking of nostalgia, I'm old enough to have a faint memory of Crystal Pepsi. It's back in stores and I had to try it. Let's just say some things are better left in the past!

  4. Oh no, sorry to hear about your sister's dog. I had to do that recently too with Gracie and it is so hard and stays with you for a long time :( I used to love Crystal Pepsi! Perhaps I shouldn't seek it out so I don't ruin the good memories? Good luck tonight!

  7. I'm sure your panel will go amazingly well! And I'm really sorry to read about your sister's dog. the great tragedy of pet ownership is that we usually outlive them, and that's always a rough experience.

  18. So sad about your sister's dog. :( That's always hard. Michael was OBSESSED with finding Crystal Pepsi. I thought it was just normal Pepsi without coloring, but apparently it was not! Good luck tonight!

  21. That is really sad about your sisters dog. Im sorry..losing a pet is like losing a family member. I have seen the Crystal Pepsi but never knew what it was before that. Does it taste like regular Pepsi? Good luck at your panel tonight! I'm sure you will do great!

  27. Oh that is so sad about your sisters dog, that is never an easy thing. And speaking of slow, I am so over Bluehost. My site keeps getting slower and slower I need to move away from them and get a new service provider.

  43. Losing a pet is so hard! I've been keeping your family in my prayers. I love the articles you post on your Facebook page. I read a lot of them and I always enjoy them. I watch more YouTube than I do TV. I got the Crystal Pepsi the other day because I had to try it. It was ok, but I prefer Diet Pepsi. It was fun to try though! I'm so glad your panel went well. I wish I could have gone. Loved this post!
