what you should know about me: i exercise so i can eat. i love to eat.i think peanut butter and chocolate is the most perfect duo. i think a girl should eat dessert, and never order a salad on a date. i like a family-friendly decor with fun surprises found in pops of color or something re-purposed in a new way. i don’t like to cook, but i do love the feeling that putting a meal on the table for my family gives me. i am perfectly imperfect and am learning to embrace my flaws and imperfections for what makes me who i am. i strive to be happy and content every day and try to be the best wife, mom, friend and daughter that i can be.
i believe in pedicures. i believe in green, the color not thelifestyle (although, more power to the people living the lifestyle. i admire you. truly. it’s just not for me. don’t judge.) i believe in slurpees, a great glass of red wine shared with a good friend and great, honest conversation. i believe in resolving conflict whenever possible and in keeping the peace. i believe in miracles, in a really good cheeseburger, giving back more than i take and in the quality of a good education. i love travel and long to see every little corner of this big, amazing world & to give my children the gift of perspective.i try to look for the good in every situation. i believe that taking time for me makes me a better wife, friend and mommy….and i whole-heatedly believe in saying “i love you” enough that the people i cherish will not have any doubts that i do.
i have a kid friendly, child-proofed home that still manages to be grown-up enough for me to enjoy. i have come to accept that at this stage in my life, i will never have all the rooms completely clean at one time. i’m okay with that. i love learning new things. i love to garden and i’m trying to love eating the vegetables i’m growing. i love projects. i think pedicures and hair cuts are necessities. i love to travel and live in new places. i can’t wait to open the world up to my kids. i believe in laughing really loud.
i believe in consistent discipline. i believe that everyone should learn a foreign language. i believe in big hugs and kisses. i believe i was made just they way that i am for a reason. i love long phone conversations with great friends, tomato-basil soup, good books and seeing how much i saved at the end of each shopping transaction. i try to remember that in this season with small kids, the days are long but the years are short. i believe in enjoying my kids and my husband. i believe these years are going to fly by and i don’t want to miss a minute of it.
Thank you Chach and Nellie…for being so…. OPEN with us here at Little Miss Mama and making us giggle, as we all count our lucky stars 🙂
