To my fans!

Well, I know I have been quiet for a few weeks.  For those of you that know me, you know that sometimes, I have to take some time to get recharged and get ready for my next step.  Yes, I'm being quiet, but my mind is always working.  I'm thinking about what you want to read.  I'm thinking about what I want to write.  I'm thinking about how vulnerable I want to be with you.  I'm thinking about all these things that can make my blog better.  For instance, a few weeks ago, I changed the format of my blog and I haven't seen any complaints.  I change things to make them easier for you because I value you all and you all have been such an amazing support group for me.  Why do I call you a support group?  Well, you share in my joys, you laugh at my silliness, and most of all, you are there for me what I need that extra boost.  Support group, family, whatever you want to call it, that is what you are to me.  What I am saying is this, don't worry when I get quiet - …

Post Class Reunion

So, over the weekend, I had the chance to see some of my peeps from the class of 2003 from high school.  I won't lie, I was a bit scared because I don't have my cheerleader body, I'm single (with no prospects), no children, and I just didn't feel like I was doing as much as my other classmates, as far as the family life is concerned.  

However, I was pleasantly surprised after I made my grand entrance in my black and white dress from Torrid and my beautiful red shoes!  Of course I was greeted with hugs and plenty of giggles, but one statement someone said to me made my 2 hour trip home worth the trip.  One of my friends came up to me and said I love following your post on Facebook because you seem to enjoy life.  It's amazing how much a statement can change your day.  I do enjoy life and I am so happy that someone else other than my family and my coworkers see that about me.  I hate to call her a stranger, but seeing as how we haven't seen each other in 10 years…

Class Reunion preview

Well, this weekend marks my 10 year class reunion.  I was plus size in high school and I'm still plus size now.  However, believe it or not, I was also a cheerleader.  Yep, I went to a school that let curvy girls cheer.  So here's the thing, I don't know what type of expectations to have for this reunion.  Will people notice I'm one size bigger than what I was in high school?  Will people bring up a dark part of my past I would rather forget?  Will people ask me why I'm single and why I don't have any kids?  I haven't quite figured out how to field those questions.  However, I just hope that it isn't followed with you're too pretty to be single.  That one might send me over the edge.  

The thing is, I had some confidence issues in high school that I needed to work through.  I had confidence in college that I needed to work through.  I have confidence issues in my adult life that I still need to work through.  Since I believe in being honest with you,…

Color wars

Well, ladies and gentlemen, last weekend (Labor Day weekend) marked the unofficial end to the summer season.  You know what that means, right?  The end of the fun, impromptu outdoor cookouts.  The end of those long days by the pool.  The end of summer vacations.  The end of the overall fun that was had by all.  Now, if you are strictly a fashionista (or fashionisto - male version), you are probably thinking Labor Day marks the last day you can wear white.  Well, I am telling you right now I BEG TO DIFFER!!!
So, let me go ahead and get this little disclaimer out the way because I don't want y'all (yes, I'm Southern born and bred) thinking that I am talking about the color white like I wear it all the time.  Personally, I don't think I look good in white.  Nope, not because I'm not pure or anything (I figured I would get that out the way too), but because I really don't think it fits my skin tone.  In fact, I have even told people that if (big IF) I ever make that…
