Things I've learned this week.

Going to the park in the winter is the bomb. It's much less crowded and I don't have to worry about clothes clinging to me, nor do I sweat. It's a beautiful thing.

Plus I get to see this face and listen to her ask me to swing her higher and higher.

She's become quite the swing lover. She's come a long way from less than a year ago when she absolutely hated the swings. She still loves sliding, but man oh man is the swing the place to be.


Not rinsing the conditioner out of my hair makes my hair less big and less flyaway. I like that. A lot. I also am really liking the color lately. It's getting super silver, but you know what? I think it looks pretty badass.

Also, I'm very tired lately. Does it show? I know I look bored in this photo- I'm at work, what I can say? - but I'm just so dang tired all the time. I'm lucky the little chica is OK with chilling out when we get home for the day cuz I'm not sure what I would do if she was like one of them kids that is non-stop action all the time.


Just cuz this winter hasn't been cold enough or snowy enough, doesn't mean we can't still build snowmen.


For the first time in like 20 years (probably definitely more than that), I want to go to the beach. I'm looking forward to going to the beach.

It must be cuz I'm Fierce and (will be) Forty! ; )


  1. Hurrah for winter! And for swinging. Ada would do nothing but swing at the park if given the choice. Ask Kathi - she's seen it!

    Are you still tired? Not sick on top of it, I hope. What a rough year for you, healthwise. I hope you start feeling more like your old self soon.

  2. She's adorable and I love your silver hair!

  3. I think your hair looks so cool! I had random streaks of red from when it used to be totally red but now I just have random bits of it appearing!

    I like taking Oli to the park in the winter because the mud is all dry and doesnt get everywhere! :)

    Have like you over on facebook x

  4. Your hair looks great! Shiny! :)

  5. You look great :-)
    I can send you some cold weather, I´d love to, cause I hate it being here! And for the getting 40-stuff... aw. Just did that, it´s ok. (No it´s not, but don´t tell!)

  6. I'm silver too. I always cover it with hightlights, but the cost of a New York dye job might make me rethink this a bit.

    Indoor snowmen are so fun, and I totally get you on going to the park in the winter. I need gloves, otherwise I'm good.


speak your mind.
