Happy Meme Monday: Dear Vegetarians

I’m so far from being a vegetarian, far. But this meme here gave me a chuckle and I just had to share it with you. I’m also loving the fact that Zach Galifianakis is in this meme, one of my favorite comedians, asking a legitimate question.

Happy Meme Monday: Kids Never Ending Story

The fact that kids can tell you a story with no end in sight is nothing short of amazing. The timing – this is perfection too! My kids have the perfect timing. They want to tell me a never ending story when I’m trying to make a doctors appointment over the phone, or helping one of their siblings with homework. That moment when you can’t stop what you’re doing because otherwise your brain will really go in a fog and you will not remember absolutely anything – yes that moment!

Happy Meme Monday: The Makeup Life vs Not

I’m going to admit that a bit of makeup application does make me feel different – good  different. I think regardless of how I would have put that, it may come off a bit shallow. However, the mom life does  come with sleep deprivation and in turn the under eye circles develop and never quite stop showing. So, applying something that can help hide any indication that this mama has not fully  slept since 2007, deserves all the praise in my book. And here’s a wonderful meme to remind me of just  that!

Brain Surgery May 9, 2013 – Chiari Malformation

max-van-den-oetelaar

May 9, 2013 is marked within the deepest part of her soul. 

It’s only brain surgery they said.

8 hours into a place of the unknown, she drifted to a deep sleep. 

You never know who or what may change your life – until it does.

And the 8 hours are up, she awakes to a new life – a life of chronic pain that can only been seen in her face.

It’s an invisible illness they said. 

She struggles to maintain her composure.

How does one live with pain, deep pain, pain that doesn’t discriminate and doesn’t stop to ask you your name.

SHE does, she struggles, she cries, she hurts, she screams, she writes, she draws, she smiles, because when time doesn’t stop, she can’t stop.

And when she asks for help, he says, I can’t take the pain, but I can give you something for the pain.

She continues to scream the silent scream.

Be grateful, be thankful – they say.

But when one has no other choice but to be strong, then strong she is.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and being that our mental health is just as important as your physical health, I encourage you to get screened, get help or ask for help. There are both adults and children going through some type of mental illness – break the stigma, it’s not bad, you’re not crazy and you can get better by getting help.

Happy Meme Monday: Private Number

You know that call that reads, ‘unknown caller’? Yes, that one. I must admit, there is nothing more slightly annoying than someone calling me with a blocked number. And I’m most sure, there is nothing more aggravating then me not answering their call.

Nail File Friday’s: Easy Flower Nail Art

I’m so excited to share this weeks nail art tutorial as it’s something I had yet to try. The flower trend is ongoing especially this time of year, although it seemed a bit intimidating I gave it a go! And it turns out it’s easy and you can try the flower in your own favorite color, or as I did here, in pink. The trick to doing a flower – layers, layers! And a thin brush wouldn’t hurt either.

Quick Tip for Brushes: have a brush that’s too thick for nail art, simply dip in acetone to shape and trim the sides to make it thinner.
