Cloudy, with a chance of Sunshine.

I usually write really long, rant-y posts about everything that is wrong in my life, or something that is ticking me off. I hate feeding that negative energy though. I feel like you get out of the universe what you put into it, ya know? 

So I'm desperately looking for silver linings. Though truth be told, I'm a gold kinda girl. But that's neither here not there. 

My son turned 5 last week! And he had such a great time at his birthday party. That kid smiled so big for days. I'm very grateful for that.



My 6 year wedding anniversary is coming up. It sure feels like it's been longer than 6 years. I think Hubs and I are closer than ever and things have been pretty blissful. I'm very grateful for that. 

My youngest son is just turning into the sweetest, most gentle little guy. Every day, his first words to me are usually "mommy, I love you!" Or "mommy, I hug you!" So sweet! I'm very grateful for that. 

So when things are bringing you down, stop and look for a silver lining. I bet you can find at least a couple!

Twenty One! Twenty One!

That reminds me of the song by The Cranberries... Twenty One... Anybody know it? Am I aging myself here? haha. 

I know I haven't been around much lately, but I promise to be back soon with more updates on the chaos which is my daily life. My little man turned 5! Holy cow! More on that soon. In the meantime, link up with us!! :)

I really wanna dance the night away...

A little over a week ago, Charlie and I went to the Honda Civic Tour in Bristow, VA.  Hubs and I haven't been to a concert together since like 2011 when we went to the Travis Tritt concert in our town. So naturally, we were super excited. 






The opening act was Tony Lucca, from Mickey Mouse Club fame, but more recently, he was on Team Adam on The Voice. He did really well warming up the crowd. 






Next was Kelly Clarkson. That girl got pipes, man. She can sing her buns off. But one thing that kept annoying me a little bit was that right before every song she sang she would say, "Oh, this next song is one of my favorites, but if you don't like it, oh well, because I do." Which I guess was her way of being funny, but she kept saying it a gazillion times and then it started to come off as rude. But hey, what do I know? :)

But then. Oh but then. Maroon 5 and my sweetie Adam Levine performed. They were AMAZING. Adam just moved from song to song to song without seeming to even breathe in between and the energy in the crowd was absolutely electric. They really know how to rock.

Ohhhh, Adam. *swoon*



What concerts have you guys been to lately?  Have you ever seen Maroon 5 live??

What to Say When You Have Nothing to Say

I got nothing, folks. Exhaustion has been the name of the game the last few weeks.
 
 
I could tell you about the giant piles of laundry that I still need to do.  I could tell you about doing food prep so that my groceries don't go bad... again.  I could tell you about not having time to do anything exercise-related and feeling like a blob.
 
 
But my hubby is actually home for once... so... I'm going to instead snuggle with him and just relax.
 
 
Tell me what interesting things you're doing this weekend!

It's Official...

I am now the mom of a Kindergartener. I can't even tell you how much of a wreck I was. I couldn't sleep all night before his first day. I drove to work in tears and made my husband promise to take a million pictures. My stomach was in knots all day. Will he be OK once he gets to school? What if he's picky and doesn't eat lunch and is hungry all day? What if, what if, what if, what if!
 
 
Well, he survived his first day. And second day. And third day (by the time you read this). He's a champ. He comes home and tells me all about his day and I just love it. He brought home a library book from school about going to the dentist. So I asked him why he picked that book and he said, "Dentist? No, I liked the spiky animal on the front." There's a picture of a little boy hedgehog going to the dentist on the cover. hahaha.
 
 
 
Anyway, here are some pics of my handsome little man on his first day of school.
 
 
 



I love this kid! And look at those ears, he totally gets those from me. haha.

At the bus stop. Can somebody tell little Eminem to stop being a jerkface next to my kid? K, thanks.
 
 
Sigh. They grow up so fast!
 
 
 
Hope all you moms out there are hanging in there for back to school week! Hugs!

5 Dream Jobs

A little while ago, I posted about 5 jobs that I could never do. And I could probably add 10 more professions to that list.  But it got me to thinking if I could have any job in the world, what would it be? If I had the luxury of doing whatever I wanted to do, what would I choose? Well, I'm so glad you asked, young grasshopper.  
 

 
Professional Student
OK, hear me out on this one. I am a nerd. I mean, we all knew that, right? I love taking classes and reading and researching stuff.  If I had the time and money, I would absolutely get my master's degree.  Heck, I'd probably even get 2. Why not? I'd probably study marketing and/or web design.
 
 
  Social Media Manager
I pretty much live on social media as it is anyway, why not get paid to do it? Trying to reach new clients or get the word out about a business/product, etc.... I would love to do that! Blogging itself requires keeping up on the latest trends for social media and trying to reach new readers or keep current readers updated. So my internal nerd radar is pinging like crazy at the idea of being able to research and find the next big thing. 
 

 
Vin Diesel's Personal Assistant
Yes. Just yes. I mean, I would totally pick up his dry cleaning. Besides, don't you ever wonder what someone like him thinks about when he's not filming? I think it would be fascinating to know all his secrets. And follow him around. Everywhere. #creeper
 
 
 
 
 
 
Book Reviewer
Getting paid to read? Um, need I say more? Sign me up.
 
 
 
 
Pedicure Tester
What? Getting paid to go to nail salons and review their pedicure services sounds like complete heaven. I would never have to worry about being a part of Operation Eagle Talon ever again.
 
 
 
 
So, tell me... what would be YOUR dream job?
