on being 35

Well well....
here we are July 31...its my big 35!!!




I'm in Ohio right now probably raiding Hobby Lobby, eating a Panera Bagel, or relaxing in the pool with a beverage.

So.....


on that note..I thought I would add some random things I've learned in my 35 years and some things that I need to remind my self of from time to time...


Now some of this is touchy feelie..I am NOT a touchy feelie person so bare with me....there may be F bombs but hey....this is MY blog..if you don't like it..please don't read

There is nothing that compares to my love for my children..I never understood this until I had two of my own...when I think about my kids...my heart swells..




my husband really is my best friend ..I don't need to gush all over him in public for him to know this

You need to do what makes you Happy...Happy wife Happy life right!

You need to know when to say NO...sometimes enough really is enough.



there is a fine line between supporting someone and enabling them


Having a few grey hairs is actually Cool....

its important to take the time to be THANKFUL for what you have...there will always be someone who has more money, a bigger house, more more more...but there are alot of people who have far less...sometimes you need to pull your head out of your ass and remember that!



"if you wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down"- Toni Morrison



there really is such a thing as too much coffee


I will only apologize if I actually mean it



the past really is the past..you can only learn from it




Don't ask for an opinion if you really don't want to hear one....

I acknowledge my inner Bitch and I embrace it...I'm Irish and a Leo...'nuf said

I am not embarrassed that pretty papers and fabric make me giddy

sometimes I have to put myself in time out for bad behaviour...


Being a friend should not suck the life out of you..it should breathe life into you, if its too much effort..its not true friendship


There is such a thing as doing something JUST to be nice...without expecting something in return..it feels great...you should try it...

Some people really ARE just ASSHOLES

Some people really DO need a kick in the head

the laundry will STILL be there tomorrow.......your family might not be


I will not apologize for the way I feel about things...I will give myself permission to feel however I feel and I will STOP criticizing myself

I have made MANY mistakes, but learning from them has made me who I am and I really believe I'm better for it.

Always kiss your kids goodnight..although my 16 year old thinks I'm bat shit crazy

Admit when you are wrong..own up to things, dont act like a little bitch..its really annoying

I still don't know what I believe when it come to the "higher power" I am a true agnostic..and YES there is a BIG difference between atheist and agnostic.


You really CAN'T be all things to all people

Don't go to bed angry....I'm working on this one.....


saying FUCK really is cathartic

I am not a size 4 anymore but I really honestly DON'T care..If it bothered me that much..I'd be at the gym, not munching on red licorice and blogging

I have alot of quirks, I am a weirdo, I am random...but I know who I am

Well I think that's a start...I'm resolving to do more reading,more yoga, and more journalling(not on layouts) but in general..
sometimes I have so many thoughts in my head, I feel like it might explode....gotta get them out somehow

"out damned spot"- Lady MacBeth



Thanks for bearing with me on this one........
