my journey

This is me in casual attire.
My guy asked me to do a guitar strum.
I felt ridiculous.
My pants are thrifted.
My Fender guitar t-shirt is thrifted.
You've seen my guitar here.
Yes, it's a 
Fender  . 

When I think of swings I think of 7th grade.
My best friend was an 8th grader named Ann.

 Ann  & I lived in the same apartment complex.
We would walk home from school together.

Then we would go home & watch Days of Our Lives.
My husband told me that his sister used to watch that show too. I told him it must have been trendy.

I don't think I've followed a daytime soap opera since junior high. Back to the swings, in the evening, before it got dark, Ann & I would meet at the swings.

We would just swing & talk. Back then, I was kind of a brat. I admit it. She & I fought all the time.

The truth is back then, I was pretty angry.
I fought with my mom, & my brother too.
I'm not proud.

I mention this because, I feel bad about the way I acted & treated the people I love.
I wish I had been nicer to my brother.
I feel bad that I didn't look out for him better.
I wish I would have paid attention.
I was too wrapped in my own growing pains.

The shadows of my guy & I.

 To my bro, this commercial's for you.
It's a whole 31 seconds. I think you can stand it.  

My brother was telling me how he doesn't like the band Journeycause it's overplayed. Now it's kind of a joke with his wife & I. 
We will sing or play  Journey  around him. 

My favorite line in the commercial
: "Saw them in 83' in Fresno. The place was crawling with chicks." 


  1. yes you were a brat but i still love you..That is the first time I have seen that commercial..I made me laugh and remember your brother was a brat to...

  2. It's like seeing a different side of you in these clothes.. looking pretty cool in black girl

  3. I like your t-shirt. Your post reminded me of when I was unkind to my 8th grade best friend. If there's one thing I'm grateful to facebook for, it's been the chance to find her and sincerely apologize!

  4. Cute and casual! That's such a cute shirt!

    To answer your question, I was actually going to talk about this in a post, but I actually use a variation of the scrub for a "shaving cream." When I make it, I use a lot more oil and then it helps exfoliate my legs before shaving and the oil is great because the razor just glides over my legs. It's awesome!

    Yeah, my legs always got super dried out from shaving cream even when I'd moisturize afterwards. And once I used a Nair product and it actually burned my skin and my legs were bright red. I actually get less ingrown hairs and bumps when I use the oil.

  5. it always kind of depresses me when I look at your beautiful sunny photos. the weather in my country is depressing actually. it rains and rains and rains and everything's muddy. but enough of that! you look really happy and relaxed and I like your casual outfit. the T-shirt adds some spice to it ;)

  6. swings are a great place to meet! and i'm sure you weren't that much of a brat. we all have to learn and grow, right? i love a graphic tee. the guitar is edgy and so rock star!!!

  7. teddi i actually laughed kinda loud when i saw that comment below the guitar playing photo hahaha you are hilarious! it's been so long since i don't go to a park and swing :( it is so relaxing, right?

    happy week!

  8. didn't every 7th grade girl fight with her mom? it's natural to be a brat at that age, don't feel too bad!

  9. haha love these pictures! omg so cute and funny

  10. My mom used to watch Days of our Lives all the time back in the 90's to mid 2000s. I never really watched the show yet I knew all the characters from all the background noise.

  11. You spend good time, thank for sharing !!!

  12. Great look on you, digging the entire outfit. You are one of the nicest people I know in the blogging world, unique and sweet. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  13. Nice shirt!

  14. I too was a huge brat and I wish I'd given my younger sister more attention! Grade 7-9 is a tough age though, with all the hormones! I LOVE your guitar tee- so funky! (I own a guitar but have no clue how to play it!)

  15. to answer your questions on my blog

    -love the ocean, the ocean does not love me.

    -dense atmosphere kinda means (a little tough to put into words) that the layer of gases are so dense that it can provide a layer of protection or resistance to light or objects going into it. Like how something burns up when it comes down to earth.

    -I was totally thrilled I went to the braves game

    -mostly baseball, playground, and walking trails.

    -My favorite power ranger was the green ranger who went on to become the white ranger.
