Blog-tember Challenge #9...


Today's prompt:  Write a letter to sixteen year old you.  Any advice or funny stories?

I never liked doing letters to a younger me cuz I wouldn't want to tell myself to do or be anything different.  I feel that everything that I experienced & did back then helped shape me into the person I am today - the good & the bad.  So, I guess I would just tell my sixteen year old self to go with her gut & do what she feels is right.

I know, kinda boring but I wasn't a bad kid.  There really isn't anything I would take back cuz there was just nothing that was that bad, you know?  Yea, I was one of those kids.  I hung out with the kids who's parents were lawyers & doctors & judges, so decent kids.

I will tell one story that makes me giggle to this day though.  We went though a phase where we "ganked" things.  Some stupid street signs or whatever.  Well, we had a big plan that we were gonna get one of those flashing lights from a barricade.  We sat & planned this thing & thought of scenarios, all of this (if we would have put this much thought into our school work, we would have all been on highest honors - ha!).  Well, one scenario we didn't think of:  we didn't have the right tools to get the light off of the barricade so we just threw the whole dang thing in the trunk & we couldn't close the trunk so we drove around a little bit with it flashing in the trunk.  We eventually ended up just leaving it somewhere as we couldn't much be bringing an entire barricade to one of our homes.  Tee hee!

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…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
