But who is she……?

My husband and I started this blog together and planned to both blog and keep you entertained. I’m sure he will still decided to post a story or two on here but I have become the primary blogger. I realized that the “About” section is vague and thought maybe you want to know a little about me.

I’m in my 30’s and it only bothers me a little. They say you are only as old as you feel…. I always feel a different age. Sometimes I feel like a teenager and act like one too, but other times I wonder how I get around in this old body. It depends on the day.

I actually work a full-time, Monday – Friday job. It’s an interesting job with interesting people. I am still learning new things after almost 6 years.

I am also a student, not full-time because that would be impossible. I wish I were Superwoman but I’m not. I’m working on my AA and I take online classes. Yay!! I have about a year left and then plan to work toward a Bachelor’s in the same way.

I’m not crazy about where I live. It’s hot, we have no seasons and never get snow. I’ve lived here my whole life and surrounded by family, yet I feel a strong pull toward another area of our map. Sigh..maybe someday.

I don’t have any biological children. I do have the teenager though, she’s my child. We’ve been together forever and the only thing that seems to be missing from our relationship is all that pesky blood and DNA. I’ve watched her grow and taken care of her through the years so she’s mine! Blood be damned!

I do want more children though, biological or not. I want another child. I can’t wait for another child in the house. It gets to a point that is hard to even explain. It almost hurts. It’s a difficult thing to “try” to have a baby. It’s painful and stressful for everyone. It’s a difficult road. I may blog about it someday soon.

I’m not very girly, but I do love pink. I rarely wear heels and have no dresses. I have some specific confidence issues and as of today, my hair is too long. I love animals and children and pasta is the best!

I LOVE chocolate but if given the choice, I’d choose a Jolly Rancher. I’m a couch potato a lot of the time and it appears as if my bottom is starting to pay the price. I love lip gloss and watermelon and even watermelon lip gloss.

I hate spiders, needles, vomit or vomiting! Ugh… three biggest fears right there! I hate most veggies, and meatloaf too. Football bores me and so does golf although I love to play Mario Golf!

Is there anything else you want to know? Ask away and I’m happy to answer!

The Homecoming Craze

Fall=Homecoming

It’s the Homecoming season all around. All the high schools are playing homecoming games, having homecoming festivals and having a homecoming dance. Our city and the teens school recently had theirs. She was part of all the festivities as a cheerleader.

The weekend before homecoming, I descended upon one of the most expensive shopping trips of my adult life where none of the money was spent on me!!

The teen, a friend of hers and I loaded up in the early afternoon to set off on a journey to find ……. “The Perfect Dress”  If you are female you know all about this journey. If you are male and you have a female in your life who drags you along to offer opinions and carry all the crap, then you also know all about this journey as well.

Once we reached our destination, and then 18 dresses later she finally put on “the one”, you know, the one that makes you squeal and jump and cry out…”I want it, I want it, I want it!” Yeah, that’s the one! Finally, 18 dresses in, she had found it. It was a beautiful dress too. The price?? Not so beautiful, in fact, it was THE most expensive dress she put on. Sigh.. what could I do though as I looked at her excited and hopeful face. Fine! I told her she could have it.

Did you think this journey was over? Oh no my friends, we still had an agenda. Every homecoming dress needs shoes and jewelry too.

We headed off with dress in hand and entered every God forsaken store with shoes we saw. None of the shoes were perfect! None of them. We wandered and stopped and tried things on and wandered some more.

Yes! These are the exact shoes she finally picked!

We decided to take a dinner break and head closer to home to some big department stores.

Dinner!! Ahhh,,,, three people, drinks, appetizer, food and dessert! Ugghhh…the wallet took another punch in the stomach! It’s okay though because we didn’t eat lunch so this total is for 6 meals!!

We headed to Kohls where we finally found shoes, and then a necklace and earrings (that she didn’t even wear!!!!!) and a bracelet. Ohhh .. another hit to the wallet and 7 hours later we had everything we needed! She was ready for homecoming.

So Beautiful
