To Be Honest...

To be honest, I was going through some pictures of Trouble & Sunshine on their Instagrams & maybe I'm biased cuz they are my stepdaughters but I think they are both pretty dang cute:



They both drive me absolutely batty & I want to beat them most of the time...however, I still love them & just want the best for them both.

When I'm having a bad day with Trouble, I just have to remember that she does have a good heart, that she can be a good, caring, loving person.  I have seen that in her.  She worries so much about her friends & will fight for anyone she loves at the drop of a hat but sometimes I think that's just so she can fight cuz Lord knows, she's good at that!  Ha!

When I'm having a bad day with Sunshine, I just have to remember that if it weren't for her, I probably would have lost my mind & took off.  For such a young girl with a tiny frame, she has taken on a lot of weight of many relationships around her.  She is so considerate of everyone & has such a great soul...a great OLD soul.  She is wise beyond her thirteen years on this Earth.

So, at the end of the day, I should consider myself is really hard sometimes though but all the bad days will pass & hopefully at the end of the tunnel, I'll have two great ladies that I helped raise into that.

In the meantime, I could use a drink or two.  Tee hee!


  1. Aw what a cute post :) You're a good stepmama. And they both are beautiful!

    1. I try my best to be a good role model for them. I have always told them that their looks will only get them so far, they need to be good, kind people to go the distance. I especially made that clear to Trouble, she blossomed & as she did her personality went to crap but I am hopeful that she's on the up & up now. :)

  2. hahaha, I think raising kids definitely requires a drink or two on occasion. Always a new challenge on the horizon. We just do our best!

    1. You are right, we can just do our best & we'll make mistakes, we're not perfect as parental figures but it's all a learning experience for everyone involved. So, when your lil thang starts getting into her teens & you need some advice, head on over my way. :)

  3. awh!! such a cute tribute to your sweet girls :) It's amazing how much they can teach us as well as us teaching them

    Lovely Little Rants

    1. Exactly! My struggles with Trouble (her nickname fits her rather well - ha!), she's been a lesson for me, her dad & her sister. We're all learning & growing. :)

  4. As a mom of two - drinks are necessary from time to time! So - CHEERS!

    1. Oh yea, raise up those glasses! Tee hee!

  5. They are beautiful girls and are lucky to have such a caring step mother in their lives :)

  6. Loyal and considerate are two great traits. Lovely post :)

    1. Loyal, yes, Trouble is loyal. & Sunshine, she is just the most considerate lil thing. :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…
