13 Things I Know For Sure

I haven't been on this planet that long, but certainly long enough to learn a few things about myself, my habits, my body, the products I purchase and my pastimes, that I am now willing to put in black-and-white:

1) Bangs only look cute on Heidi Klum and always seem like a good idea at the time, but will take forever to grow out and look terrible on my face.


2) No matter how great my intentions are, fresh produce will go bad before I know it. Buy as you need, no more, no less.

3) I might as well get $100 out of the ATM, I know I'll spend it and it will save me the time and embarrassment at Subway.

4) The hotter the shower, the drier my skin.


5) I should have started using eye cream at 20 instead of 30.


6) Generic brand Q-tips suck!


7) If it's already 9:00, do not start a movie, I will fall asleep. The exception to this is when my husband is out of town and then for some god forsaken reason, I can stay up until after midnight.


8) Send thank you notes immediately! Having to start with, "I'm sorry this is so late..." is no way to thank someone.


9) A watched pot never boils, a phone doesn't ring, nor an 'In Box' fill.


10) I will never be known for my dinner parties, but maybe my unique handwriting.


11) There is such a thing as karma and I am a firm believer in what goes around comes around and it can show up in many different forms; parking spots, waits in line, transferring sleeping children from car seats to cribs and simply being at the right place at the right time.


12) Chances are I will probably never breathe the same air as Dave Matthews, but a girl can dream, can't she? *Swoon*


13) As much as people may think, it really doesn't take a lot to make me happy; a bowl of popcorn, a fountain drink, an hour on the treadmill or in a book store, a full tank of gas, showing up on time.

What do you know for sure?

I'm the exact same way with bangs. I do always think they would be a good idea...nope, they never are. Neither is cutting my hair short.

So true for so many of us! I know for sure that I will never have that perfect, seemingly well put together house. But hopefully it will be homey enough for my kids to want to come back to once in a while.

Oh fountain pop! I heart it's syrupy goodness

OMG. I am still growing out/pinning back my BangsOfDoom from June.

I love this list! I relate to almost all of them. Not the handwriting though ;)

A fountain pop is my idea of a major treat :)

I think I can relate to about 95% of those. Except I wish you were around to tell me #8 about two months ago. I am feeling massively apologetic and incredibly tacky at the moment.

I'm so glad you said that about bangs! I have seen some friends I know go that way, and it rarely looks good.

#8......did you sneak in my house and see the SEND THE CHRISTMAS THANK YOU NOTES TODAY sign that I have had taped to my monitor for the last month? Yeah. That was embarrassing.

Great list! Aww, that's sweet that someone honored you as her favorite lady of the week! Fun!

My hairdresser always asks if I want bangs. I did it once and will never get them again!

I'm guilty of buying a 3lb bag of bananas because they are super cheap. We've yet to finish the bag before they go bad.
