Words That Make You Go Hmmm

Words That Make You Go Hmmm

 
Words that make you go hmmmm

Every day we are adding words into the English language.

Trying to keep up with what people are saying and how they are saying it and what it all even means can be a little overwhelming.

Just ask Webster.

Here’s a few examples to try to work into your vocabulary if you want to sit at the cool table at lunch.

“On fleek” meaning on point, perfect.

As in “Girl….your eyebrows are amazing….they are so on fleek.”

“Obvi” meaning short for obvious.

As in “Your hair looks incredible.”

Obvi.

“Humblebrag” meaning trying to sound like you aren’t really all about yourself when the entire point of your statement is to point out how awesome you are in conversation.

As in “I think I need to get a hobby.  I just have too much time on my hands and I’m so organized and it’s totally embarrassing that my house is so perfect and picked up all the time.”

(Sounds like humblebrag to me). :)Continue reading


So Close to Amazing

So Close to Amazing

I am a firm believer in coordinating a matching outfit for every event.

Like a prairie skirt with a sweater vest trimmed in ribbons and high-heeled shoes with ruffled socks and a bow with my name on it.

Or a blazer (complete with tags) for a shopping day on the town.

Maybe it’s because I secretly wish one day a Hollywood producer would discover me.

Maybe it’s because I believe that everything is more fun in a head-to-toe coordinating outfit.

Or maybe it’s because I watch the Hallmark movie channel for a living.

Seriously.Continue reading


How to Jump

How to Jump

About seven years ago we took the leap and moved from a very large metroplex to the country.

We closed our eyes….took a deep breath….

….and jumped.

You can read the rest of the story here.

Or just wait for the book. :)

I get asked all the time if it was easy to jump to the country and why we did it and if it was challenging to adjust and how we supported ourselves….

….and were we able to survive without a Target?Continue reading

In my house there is a room where all the unfinished projects go.

A Stamp To Remember

A Stamp To Remember

 

There are days when I feel like I spend my life with my foot in my mouth.

Not intentionally.

Not on purpose.

It just seems like “embarrassment” follows me around.  Like an old familiar friend.

And although “embarrassment” and I have seen our share of good times, I thought we were well on our way to breaking up.  Over.  Done.  Finissimo.  I was moving on to a new relationship with “model citizen.”  Together we were going to be unstoppable….with my foot out of my mouth planted securely on the floor.Continue reading
