Lifestyles of the Not-so-Rich & Unfamous

Life's Luxuries that I've gone far too long without

  • Starbucks
  • A new hand cream or anti-bac soap from Bath & Body Works
  • A date with my husband
  • Girls Night Out
  • Getting dressed solely based on my preference without wondering what is going to be transfered from tiny fingers or lips
  • Getting my hair highlighted
  • Renting a movie
  • Shoe shopping
  • http://www.glenivy.com
  • Watching a favorite tv show when it's actually on instead of watching a taped version when the children are in bed.
  • Reading a novel
  • Being able to fully engage in what I'm reading at the beach
  • Napping at the beach
  • Wearing white
  • Getting up at my own leisurely pace
  • Being able to leave the house in a moment's notice
  • A coffee table

Things I wouldn't trade for all of Life's Luxuries

  • The sense of humor of a 3 year old
  • That tiny toothless smile
  • A husband who loves to come home even when it looks like a natural disaster occured
  • Sweet baby eyelashes fluttering as she falls asleep in my arms
  • Incessant compliments from my son
  • Watching things I've taught my children come to life before my eyes
  • The pure joy on my childrens' faces when they see me walk through the front door
  • Baby giggles
  • The sweet, pure smell that only belongs to youth
  • My family

So this is my new blog. We'll see where it goes from here. Maybe I'll forget all about it and never post again. Maybe it will become my new obsession and you will wonder if I ever have time to do anything else since I'm on this dumb computer all the time. Right now, I must sign off and go watch "How Clean is Your House" on Lifetime.
