Just Sayin’

26 Sep


It’s been a long and hectic month.  Back to school; My anniversary; My birthday; ALS Walk for Life: Mer’s birthday… and a month long of celebrations and a weekend and week up ahead of more celebrating.  I’m plum exhausted, but it’s all good.   When pondering what should I blog about, “Just Sayin'” popped into my head, because there wasn’t too much I had to write. #lazy  At the end of the blog, I’d like to give a mention to a cause that I was asked to give a voice to.  And a voice is what I’m giving.  #giver

So I present, Just Sayin’

Ain’t nobody got time for that!




Took me many years to realize this.



Forever in my heart. ❤ ❤ ❤


Very beautiful…I am very lucky and blessed to have so many wonderful friends. ❤


Speaking of lipstick, I am dangerously close to being out of my fav, Chic by Mac…which has been discontinued.  What’s a girl to do?


And making others laugh…


There is more to life than Instagram…Says the girl who has maxed out at 25 likes.  #loseratinstagram #rocksatfacebook



And you know who you are! xoxo



Tacky is as tacky does.



Just a little time…




It’s never too late to be what you might have been.


Yes, I can relate.






One of my favorite sayings.


Life is short, make the most of it.




We should dance every day!



Thankfully, I have a funny bone and I believe in wishbones…still working on that back bone. 🙂


You know who you are.



Humor is a must…



Live your dreams.  It’s difficult to follow your dreams.  It’s a tragedy not to.

Being Happy

Best. Quote. Ever.


This…is true.



I do like it up here!



Honestly, I am Not that interesting.  Those who follow this blog, understand this. 😉



Two ears, one mouth.  Enough said.









Thankfully, I am a savvy packer. 😉


I first heard this from my friend, Phyllis in 2004…and I have used this line ever since!




Hence, my over-packed closet.  Trust me…yoga is probably a better option. 🙂



Hairspray is the topic of the best laugh I shared with my sister Megan this week…which will probably turn into a future blog.  Exactly what would you endure, to ensure your hair looked good for a photo shoot?  🙂


More words to live by…and I plan on doing just that today!

Today is the 10th anniversary of Mesothelioma Awareness Day.  I received this note from a fellow blogger.

My name is Heather Von St. James and I am reaching out to you in hopes that you will help me with a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. In honor of Mesothelioma Awareness Day, I am reaching out to bloggers to ask for help in spreading the word about mesothelioma. Would you be willing to help by posting on your blog to give a voice to these innocent victims?

September 26th, 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of Mesothelioma Awareness Day, and has been the driving force behind the movement to bring more attention and funding to this cancer. There is no more innocent victim than a person with mesothelioma, they are sick as a direct result of a product that is NOT banned in the U.S. This disease has a life expectancy of just 18 months after diagnosis, and symptoms may not be evident until 20-35 years after initial exposure to asbestos.

Yes, Heather, I am happy to give mention to Mesothelioma.

For more information:

Song of the Day:  Friday Lights, by Eric Paslay.  From the finger snapping tunes playlist…the gift the keeps on giving!  

I wanna be your Friday night sweet ride
Summertime sunshine barefoot in the moonlight
I wanna be your jackpot hot spot
Wide open road in a candy apple rag top
I wanna set you free, I wanna take you high
I wanna be, wanna be your Friday night

I am not a Yankee’s fan, but I tip my hat, if I were to wear a hat (it’s an all day decision) to Derek Jeter.  Truly a Hollywood-ending with his last at-bat in Yankee Stadium.  #RE2PECT.


Best way to start my Friday, is texting and bantering with Stephanie…who is impatient when my blog isn’t posted by 7AM.  She did have  some fashion concerns, or what we will refer to as “urgent Homecoming 911’s”.  When I indicated I was working on a blog, but not quite certain about what, she suggested, “how about new advice for an old homecoming queen”?  And I am still laughing…

Speaking of Stephanie, I received this tweet from her this week, “It’s on like donkey kong.  Friendships aside for the week #GoPack”.  Uhm, GAG!  #GoBears!  It’s gonna be a great day…Are you ready for some football?!


Have a great weekend…I have lots of fun things scheduled.  Lunch with my #solesister.  Wine with Steph.  Happy Hour with Mer Mer.  Patrick has Homecoming with Mary!  Fun dinner downtown at RPM, all dressed up with someplace to go. And an afternoon with the Steins!  Oh yeah… and the Bears v Packers!  Best. Weekend. Ever!!

Go Bears!

Steph…I can hear you laughing from BH to SB! 😉
