About

So I am just this type-A wife that holds a full time job and freelances in both writing and photography, so….obviously, I am one of those creative types…I am a photographer, writer, crocheter, wife, mom, sister, daughter, friend, and owned by a small pack of dogs.

Sadly, I am also opinionated, not shy about it, and have a ridiculously low threshold for injustice, unfairness, and idiots.

This blog is basically my safe place to blow off steam. You’ll find my observations; things that are funny, situations that tickle me,  scenarios that piss me off, things I’ve witnessed that are a little perplexing (did you read the one about the two pervy guys in the parking lot?), and tidbits that I can’t put on my “professional” blog, because I have no filter in my real life. 😉

While I hope that this will primarily entertain you, I also hope that something you read will make you stop and think and motivate you to do something, anything to make a change, do something kind for yourself (I do not recommend henna for dying your hair red unless you absolutely know what you’re doing), or just laugh.

Muchos gracias for stopping by. I hope you stick around. 🙂

    1. I’ve been in and out of the dentist’s chair over the last two weeks and hammered at work, and not really getting a lot of sleep.

      I’m taking a hiatus from awards for the summer, because I just don’t have time to do a regular blog let alone awards blogs. I probably wouldn’t have even seen this had my phone not gone off.

      1. No worries. I just told Squirrell that I was going to harass you, so I did. Sorry to hear about the dentist. I share the same sentiments about dentist visits as you do. Hopefully work will slow up a bit, and you’ll get some rest.

        Take care, sis!

  1. I found you via a trail of breadcrumbs laid by Mother Hen – and I’m glad I did. Great blog! Love the musings and opinions, interspersed with flashes of humour (and you have totally got those vines trained. You are like the Vine Whisperer!)

    I like that you admitted to being a Type-A personality. My husband recently bought me an iPhone cover that had “Type-A” embossed on it. I (very ungratefully) pulled a face and said I hated it. “That’s not me at all!” I moaned. Within a week, I’d bought myself a new phone cover to replace it. I now suspect that the fact I had to control the type of phone cover I used might suggest that the Type-A cover was the right one for me.

    Looking forward to more posts.

      1. Ah, you’re welcome! Stockpiling was not the way ahead lol but glad you’re being recognised as brilliant by loads of people 😉

          1. I know, lol. Just went to check out Whitney and saw that my message wasn’t there d’oh – and saw you gave her a couple of others too! Brilliant! I hope there aren’t many others though who never found out they’d been nominated – may have to work my way back through the list 😦

            1. I’m working on a “system” to make the process easier…I’m compiling a list of my favorite blogs in a Word document, and adding to it as I go along, complete with URL’s, so that I can copy, paste, link when I do one. Then I type up a notification paragraph that I can personalize when I notify, and then click through all the links I posted on my blog, and boom. Easy Peasy.

              And Whitney is a hoot, isn’t she?

              1. Whitney is a hoot – she’s hilarious! I love that we need a system to deal with these things. And I followed your method above – exactly – but because I nominated a gazillion blogs I had too many tabs open and so when I pasted my notification para my computer had a tantrum at some point, and then repeatedly! Ha ha

                    1. Wow, I never thought of it like that. For me, I can say – at last, it’s finally happened! 😉

  3. Hello Julie, as a valued reader of my blog, I have nominated you for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award – I love this because it offers a chance to thank people who follow and read your posts (plus there’s very little work required – just to thank and nominate, lol). Of course, I understand if you do not have time or would prefer not to participate, but if you are interested, please follow the link below to see the full requirements for acceptance. 🙂
