Rocking Blogger Girly Award....I love anything pink!


Terri Terri Quite Contrary who is one of my favorite blogging queens gave me the very special gift of the "The Rockin’ Girl Blogger Award"!

Since I love reading her daily, it's an honor to receive this from her.
She always has a crazy spin on something and her quirky sense of humor has me bent over sideways in laughter.

She wrote:
Worn Out Woman A wonderful mom with a heart of gold and an inspiring faith in God.

Okay Terri....**I'm blushing**...thank you very much!

My intent with this page was to give everyone a laugh from time to time, but mainly to inspire those women who feel overwhelmed. Most out there can't imagine ever having any energy again. You know the moms, who work full-time and slave to their families to boot. The ones who are so drained that they've lost their sight of what they want for themselves. It's only about everyone else.

I wanted a page that would let them know how inspiring life can be, even when pulled in 100 different directions. Getting burnt out is okay...just take life one step at a time. If you don't look or yearn to be so far in the future...and live 'in the moment', life can be pretty beautiful. I live the beauty of tired mommies life on purpose. Each day is full of purpose to give thanks for everything I have...even the struggles. God helps me through it all, and I want to encourage every mom out there to do the same!

Who do I lovingly bestow this award to? Well that's pretty easy:

A Not So Desperate Housewife A beautiful wife and mother whose blog inspires me daily that someone can have it all.

Mama Lyn's Flava A sassy bogging chick whose sight I can't get enough of.


Sky Windows A thoughtful touching heart who has so much to give to the world and her family.

If you've been tagged...place this pretty in pink badge on your site and scream at the tops of your lungs----WAHOO!

Then post your blog and bestow it to others that you feel inspire you!

Voting is like a PBJ

So, yesterday was voting day for many offices like County Clerk and Congress.   I always want to educate myself on the many issues and campaign trailblazers so I can make my voice count.  Voting is our God-given right which wasn't even acknowledged by our nation until the women's suffrage movement.  Many of our great - great grandmothers met, marched, and went on strike to strive for the right to vote.
When I hear anyone I come in contact with say that due the fact that they don't like anyone on the ballot they're not going to vote - it blows my mind!  We are blessed with that privilege!  And even if you don't like anyone, to not vote is still casting a vote because your voice isn't heard.  
Think of it like this:   What if there was only a choice between peanut butter or jelly - and the popular vote would bring to light what we're allowed to eat.   If you say, 'Well, I don't like either, so it doesn't matter!'  Then you choose not to vote.…

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …
