That kind of luxe just ain’t for us

005/366 [2012] - What I Wore Today

(Sarah @ TM2TS)

I’m not really looking for wholesale clothing, but I do like a good bargain for clothes! The kids are outgrowing their clothes almost faster than we can keep them in them! Ethan’s fully out of size 8’s. Well, sort-of. He’s too tall for them, but they still have to be adjusted to fit him in the waist … and they’re slims! Skinny waist, long legs. Hmm, I wonder where he gets that?

Eventually, they’ll stop growing long enough for us to get them into decent fitting clothes, but for now, they’re either too big or too small. With Ethan, I’d prefer too big. With Madison, I’d almost prefer too small, at least in shirts. They’re a little tighter, but she’s not flashing skin when she bends over either. Ugh! Girls are IMPOSSIBLE to raise, I Say!

Me So Random

Semi-recent selfies that I have taken of myself, because I am lame and cool like that 😉

This is what I look like without glasses. I was testing some glasses on Zenni Optical, just for funsies (I’ll be upgrading my frames in 2014).

Nope, Not For Me

Currently, I have my Marshmallow Fireside [Bath and Body Works] candle burning, and it smells amazing. It blocks out the icky smell of the heater (burning dust smells AWESOME), and even the smell of blunt cigars. I’m not sure if that’s what around us smoke, but gag, whatever it is, it smells. Badly.

Also: The pic I found via Zemanta? That is freaking COOL, isn’t it? I love this plugin!

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Blinged out Girlyness

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I don’t believe it. Personally, I think whatever makes you happy is what you need! For me, it’s my electronical gadgets, such as the Kindle and the laptop. My camera and my phone. Shoes with a bit of rhinestones. A purse that totally matches everything, always. A functional, but still stylish, camera bag.

I don’t need diamonds to make me happy. I don’t need millions of dollars, and big fancy cars. I have my life, my health (such as it is, 😆 ), my friends, my family. I have all that I need to make my life complete.

Do you? No matter how much you’re desiring, are you happy with what you have? You should be. You should find happiness where you can grab it, and hold on to it, instead of dwelling on what you don’t have, or what you can’t have. Life really sucks if you live it that way.

We Are Dorks

The Shadow on the WallAt one time or another, Josh and I have looked into custom gear, such as custom hats. Come on, having one would be kind of cool, but I don’t think he’d completely go for it. He’s a party pooper of the worst kind!!

Oh well, I’m still gonna work on him with it, because I think it would be really cool! How can it be any more different than him wearing some sort of goofy hat that he wears already. Too bad we can’t get custom USPS ones made. Then maybe the post office would be cool “again”!
