Don’t be hatin’ on our JJ!

JJ Watt cowboy hat

Who doesn’t admire JJ Watt? I mean really, the guy is amazing. Perhaps the Texans need to go ahead and make him quarterback too. He does everything else already and everybody knows the Texans are in desperate need of a quarterback that can play to the level of the rest of the team. Maybe I’ll start a petition to see if we can make this happen.   Take a look at some of JJ’s stats for the 2014 season:   78 combined tackles 20.5 sacks 4 forced fumbles 5 fumbles … [Read more...]

BAM! Just Like That!

Wanna Betta Butt?

  How many of you have ever bought into the crazy marketing promises we are bombarded with on a daily basis? Marketing gurus play on our weaknesses and the things we are self conscious about. They know just how to get us to pull out our wallet and hand over our money even if we are doubtful that said product would actually give us the results we see on the ads. For some reason, we just keep on hoping and believing.   I’m pretty immune to those ploys at this point in my … [Read more...]

The Proper Way to Kill a Bug

How-To-Kill-A-Spider

Whenever I’m confronted by a bug or an insect, (I know there is technically a difference but in my mind they are pretty much the same), my first instinct is to run. However, as I’ve grown up, I’ve learned that they don’t go away by themselves. Someone has to do a removal! If there is no one around of the male species age 12 and up, guess what that means? Yes, YOU are the one that has to deal with it. YOU are going to have to put on your big girl exterminator hat and do the job. Tap into … [Read more...]

Scuba Diving Naked?

Scuba Diving group

    I started scuba diving about 30 years ago and still love it. The feeling of being under water with no gravity is a feeling that you just have to experience. Over the years, I have been fortunate to witness many strange and beautiful things while pursuing this passion. Of course there have also been a few strange people along the way as well. Scuba divers seem to be a diverse group of people that somehow bond over diving experiences.   The stories that I can tell … [Read more...]

This doesn’t excite me at all!

  When it comes to spending money, women are masters at rationalizing expenses. We can shop a sale, spend several hundred dollars, and declare that we’ve actually saved money. AND we believe it!   Yep, that’s right! If we actually saved more money by shopping the sale than the actual amount of money spent, we believe that we have saved a bundle. Example: if something is 75% off, we have spent only 25% of what we could have spent had we not waited for the sale. Are you … [Read more...]

How do you feel about caterpillar eyebrows?

Eyebrow stencil fail

There are many reasons why women follow fashion trends. Sometimes it's to impress or compete with other women. Eyebrow fashions come and go. How do you feel about the current trend that has women using stencils to draw on their eyebrows? Do you think it's sexy?   Would you ever consider doing this to your own brows?   … [Read more...]

Bugs Bunny in the Flesh

      I recently saw a little boy dressed in a superman T-shirt that was doing his best to act Super Manly. He was oh so very cute! His hair was coaxed into a little Mohawk and he had the cutest dimples. I’m guessing he was about 2 years old. His mom told me that he loves dressing up like superheroes.   I began to reminisce about when my own son, now in his twenties, used to love to dress up like all kinds of fictitious characters. He always wanted to dress … [Read more...]

I might not be rocking the boat but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to set sail!

We never lose friends.

  Don’t ever confuse politeness with agreement. Have you ever been pressured by a friend or an acquaintance to jump onboard with something that they are passionate about? I seem to get this a lot. While I am happy for others who have found something they absolutely love, I can’t possibly sail away on every ship in the sea! After all, I have my own ship to navigate! I would love to shore up everyone with encouragement but I’ve learned that seems to send conflicting … [Read more...]

It’s time to break in the new Yoga instructor!

crowded_yoga

Last month, my favorite yoga instructor, Shohreh, informed me that she would not continue to teach the Saturday morning class after the start of the New Year. I have taken yoga from many different instructors and have witnessed many different styles over the years. Some great, some bearable, and some …… let’s just say they didn’t get a second chance. I empathize with anyone stepping into that class and trying to fill her shoes because Shohreh is just that awesome.   So I … [Read more...]
