Day 9: A Moment In My Day

Today’s prompt is nice and easy. Just the way I like it!

This “moment” is from this afternoon. After work I went to Barnes & Noble to get my iced tea and possibly write these blogs but it was packed and there was no where to sit so I ended up walking around a little bit. I found myself in the magazine section and thought I’d check out Southern Living and Country Sampler for some ideas for my sister’s grad party. I didn’t find anything but that leads me to my next point! I bought something for the party that I think is pretty hilarious.

It’s a door cover that looks like the door to an outhouse! It’s going to be perfect for the powder room door at my mom’s house. I also got some cute sheriff badges. The party is one month from today and I can’t contain my excitement anymore!



This week is my short week at work so I have a three day weekend ahead of me. I almost said “Have a happy Friday” but had to stop myself – haha..

Happy Thursday!

Day 8: Advice for your readers

I’m playing catch up, if you haven’t noticed. Yesterday after work I went grocery shopping and did some other running around so I was pooped by the time I finally made it home. Anyways, the prompt for yesterday was a piece of advice you have for others. My advice would be that you’re never too old to educate yourself. Even the wisest man has a lot to learn. Knowledge is power and yadda yadda yadda! But seriously, Knowledge truly is power and the ability to share knowledge is even more powerful. You’re never too old to go back to school or take a class or go to a workshop to learn something new.



Day 5: Publicly Profess Your Love & Devotion

Today’s prompt: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don’t have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member.

This prompt was tricky for me. I don’t follow too many bloggers. Not because I don’t want to but because I haven’t found or searched for bloggers that I may be interested in. I’ve been OBSESSED with Story of My Life’s blog since I found it last week but I thought it would be extremely corny and not to mention weird to blog about her considering I’m on her blog like 2 hours out of the day trying to catch up on her life and I’m participating in her blogging challenge. So I decided to be super original and blog about my husband, Sam. I mention his name a lot on my blog but have never really talked about him but he definitely deserves a shout out and I believe this is the perfect opportunity.

My husband Sam has got to be the greatest man I’ve ever known, besides my dad of course. He’s always there for me, even when I’m upset and he doesn’t know what to say, he knows that him just being there is all I need. Whenever we have arguments he’s always the first person to say sorry because he knows how stubborn I am and to avoid us never speaking again, he gives in. He’s hilarious and the perfect bit of immature. I truly believe that men never completely mature, or at least don’t mature at the same speed that women do. I get that and I accept it, so when he laughs at his own farts, I can’t get too upset. He calls me things like “butt scratcher” and after not shower for a good 24 hours he says that my armpits “smell like India”. Totally inappropriate but the comedic value of it all makes it ok. He is a genuine goofball but he’s also got a huge heart. Each day I am becoming a better person simply because he’s in my life, transforming me in a way, to being a better and more complete me. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to share my life with. I love you Bubby Bear!

5 Facts About Sam:

– He’s a HUGE Chicago Bulls fan and so relieved that they beat the Nets last night (woo-hoo!)

– He was born in Georgetown, Guyana.

– His favorite album of all-time is Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt.

– He’s pretty superstitious and has weird rituals that he does that he thinks will improve his team’s chances of victory. (Including not letting his feet touch the floor during the game, keeping his hands folded a certain way, ect.)

– He’s from the land of many waters but he’s really bad at swimming.
