Happy Meme Monday: Superbowl

I’ll be honest, I’m not much of a football follower, fan, watcher, etc. However, I will make the time to watch the Superbowl. And this years Superbowl was no exception, now the game itself – no offense, I watched closely in anticipation for the commercials. However, I will say, I was elated for the ‘GOAT’ (greatest of all time) the Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady – amazing! I think it’s one of those things we won’t see for a really, really long time, so glad I got to watch it happen.

Happy Meme Monday: My Dream Doormat

This picture was sent to me from a friend and I thought I’d share it with you today because, what are friends for?!  I love the way it gives you just enough of a warning before walking into the home. It’s also a very subtle warning, because the message could have been written in many other ways that could have very well scared your guests away. So, to the person that made this doormat, this mom of many thinks you’re an absolute genius. Thank you for the laugh!

Happy Meme Monday: Picture Day Gone Wrong

This only reminds me of ‘school picture day’ gone wrong. Can you relate to that school picture gone wrong?! Many can look back at old school pictures and think, wow! Maybe it was the hair, your smile – you know, the smile with the missing front tooth, or the attire. Or perhaps you’re now the parent of a child, whom is so cute and yet, can’t ever get the school picture just right. You know?!

I can relate, I have one of my boys, that has the most beautiful smile, and yet every year, I just don’t know what this mama will get when I receive the school envelope with the prints. He enjoys surprising us – year after year!

That little one is beyond gorgeous, but I can’t get over this look here presented by none other than Willem Dafoe – the actor that played the green goblin in Spider-Man, it’s hilarious.

Happy Monday.

Are You a Good Friend to Yourself? — MakeItUltra™ Psychology

This post I share with you today comes from Dr. Perry and it speaks on how loving yourself serves as a platform, sets the tone, as to how your friends will value your friendship in their lives. As I continue to grow older, I contemplate many times on the importance of self love and friendships. I also have come to understand that some friendships are not meant to remain in your life forever. This has even more truth when you live with Chiari Malformation + Syringomyelia, chronic pain is not for the faint of heart. And fortunately or not, you realize even more so when is the time to put an end on friendships that no longer serve well to your health and to your life in general. You know the friendships that bring on more stress than they do joy – those ‘friendships.’

I’ve realized that loving me, putting my feelings first, being compassionate for my own being, is far more important than any outside friendship. Because when you love yourself and know the value you bring as a friend when others don’t, I think that’s when it’s time to call it quits to a friendship that no longer brings positivity to your life and family. There will be a mourning period, but I simply wish them well and move on.

In this post here Dr. Perry, highlights the love and sympathy you should have for yourself, and asks, what kind of friend are you being to yourself? I think first and foremost be a friend to yourself to then know what to look for in friendships.

Written by Dr. Perry, PhD Image Credit: Pixabay “A friend is a gift you give yourself.” ~Robert Louis Stevenson What kind of friend are you? Are you attentive, kind and compassionate or, are you neglectful, uncaring and critical? Scrolling through quotes on the internet, I was reminded of the immense value we place on friendship. […]

This meme served to remind me of the fact that there are a few differences when it comes to shopping with mom versus the children shopping with dad.

Shopping in my home ….

Mom                                    vs.                              Dad

Mom: Goes off ‘the list’ – probably, every single time

Dad: Gets only whats on the list

Mom: If child gets cranky, will buy one small bag of chips

Dad: If child gets cranky, depending on the level of ‘crankiness,’ will either finishing shopping or leave the store

Mom: Budget?! ….. she tried!

Dad: Budget, on track and is adding it all up as he shops

Mom: Reads labels

Dad: You want ketchup, it’s a red bottle, I brought you a red bottle, bread is bread!

Mom: Still attempts to use coupons

Dad: Doesn’t care for coupons, to read them, none of it – too confusing

Mom: Is in a rush, goes in for one thing, still manages to get 10!

Dad: Is in a rush, goes in for one thing, comes out with one thing.

Mom: Will make up excuses for the extra purchase before getting home

Dad: No extra purchase = No excuses

Mom: Goes for the healthiest choice

Dad: Goes with the brand that has a special deal that day

Mom: Item out of stock, will ask employee for help

Dad: Out of stock?! Maybe next time!

Do you and your spouse also have a few differences when it comes to shopping for the home, would love to know! Do share!

Netflix: Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

This morning GMA (Good Morning America) covered a story on a Netflix Original that has just begun! If you already know, or don’t, Marie Kondo is a Japanese best selling author. She is known for her expert advice on all things organization and I just so happen to have a deep love for all things organized. And this Netflix Original Series is based on the ‘KonMari’ method which is from her best-selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I also had written the post titled, The KonMari Method + Clutter Free Home, so if you haven’t read it, please do!

The plot behind this newly original, Marie Kondo lends a helping hand to people in need of decluttering their homes.

In the interview linked below with Marie Kondo, one of the things that struck a cord with me is when she is asked, what is wrong with American’s, why do we have so much stuff, to which she responds, that the homes are huge. Which only got me thinking about the homes I’ve visited – those smaller spaces and large, and how every inch of the home is covered in stuff! Have you been there?! Perhaps it’s because I live with chronic pain, but living in a space that is begging to be cleared is not something that is appealing to me. Either way, my hope is that this inspires you to declutter your home to make it a more loving and inviting space for yourself and your loved ones.

I’m excited to watch and see how she transforms lives, one home at a time.

Happy Meme Monday: Casual Promises To Myself

I’ve never understood why people make New Year’s Resolutions.  There are those that want to lose weight and other short or long term promises that they choose to make to themselves come the new year. As for me, I like to say, I’ll do better than I did yesterday. That just seems a bit easier, to the point and in no way am I committed to something that seems hard to attain. So, this meme here today sums it up quite well!

I’d love to know your thoughts on New Year’s Resolutions, yay or nay?!
