Happy Friday! - now, can we talk about ME for a moment?

Lordhavemercy. I never realized just how versatile I really was until this past week. Maybe it's the age thing catching up with me. I dunno. Maybe I am becoming somewhat relaxed as I approach my 40's in the next 2 years (yikes!-you have no idea how much that hurt me to say that.) IMO, I do work both ends of the spectrum pretty well. Chef Ed always says that one of the beauties of having a woman like me is that you can "dress you up for a black tie affair or dress you down with flip flops and a beer." In my mother's words, she calls that "Nice Nasty."

When the Lord gave me 2 daughters, he knew just what he was dealing with. My oldest has never played in the dirt in her entire life and my youngest is a tom boy who plays softball. The Big Man has taught me patience, that's for sure.

As for me, I am a girly-girl. I enjoy being this way. I like the fact that I don't like dirt or going barefoot and I don't see anything wrong with quality products and the willingness to pay for them. Some call it spoiled but I call it class. It's funny how other women who share the same opinions are drawn to each other like magnets. It's that underlying connection that binds us.

Don't get me wrong, I am the poster child for TJ Maxx. I feel like I hit the jackpot at the casino every time I go there. I don't know a woman in this world that does not appreciate a good bargain. In all honesty, I could probably be driving that BMW if I would make less trips there each month. But, it's that retail therapy that keeps me sane.

You understand. Don't you?? (batting my eyelashes)

What was that old saying? I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan and never let you forget your a man. LOL that's my wife too.
