Have you just ever felt like this?

We all have days where we feel like the world is caving in on us, don’t we?  Sometimes,  I feel like I am the only one. To be honest, usually I am “happy-go-lucky” all the time. In fact, my husband always looks at me in times of trouble and says “you just don’t have a care in the world”!  Always perplexed with him looking at me like that, I just node, laugh and say no! I have always looked at things as if they were meant to happen and it is all in how you handle it. I am very good under pressure, I always have been but this week, I just want to pull my hair out.

Here, let me explain…

1. Leaving a house I grew up in since I was a child.

 2. Being self-employed, the bank is driving me crazy.

  3. A good friend will not speak to me and I don’t know

what I did?

4. My daughter is getting married…

5. Everyone wants something from me.

6. My house is a cluster f@%k with furniture, lighting

and accessories for the new house everywhere.

That is why I feel like this…




These are all the great things that come out of the bad…

1. My daughter and her fiancé are moving into the house I grew up in…

2. We are blessed beyond belief to have what we have…

3. Maybe that friend is not worth the aggregation if they

do not have the time or patience to explain why… a blessing in disguise…

4. My daughter is getting married to her perfect guy…

5. At least someone wants something from you and you are not alone…

6. Well, that I need a magic wand, it is still a cluster f@%k…

There is always a silver lining in life. Don’t forget to remember that when your hands are in your hair and you want to scream and hit your head against the wall:)

19th Act of Kindness

19th act


Like I said before, even the smallest things count.

My friend Sam Calkins, and daughter of Laurie Calkins (my boss!) just started a new job at a restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, as a PR floor manager. She is awesome when it comes to dealing with people, so I am really excited for her with this new environment.

Today, as she was arriving at work, she bumped into a couple of the girls that she works with. They were all walking into the restaurant when a couple of the girls noticed that the usual guy who dropped off the beer and alcohol dropped all of it everywhere. He was scrambling to pick it all up, so they ran over to help him.

As you can see in the picture, these girls are in dresses, and they were over there heavy lifting for this guy. Sam caught it on camera and sent me the picture right away, because she felt that this act of kindness should not go unnoticed.

I am sure that the guy truly appreciated that they helped him, and his day got just a little bit better 🙂

Obviously they didn’t have to help him, but they felt it was the right thing to do. They went out of their way to help a random stranger, and that is just awesome!

YOU GO GIRLS, you deserve a pat on the back.

Laughter is The Best Remedy!

I was clicking through a bunch of the pictures taken from my sisters wedding last week and I couldn’t help but smile when I came across this picture of the wedding party. The photographer asked us to be silly, and from the looks of it, we had a blast. 

Laughter really is contagious. You see someone who is extremely happy and you cannot help but join in. 

I look at this picture and smile, because not only was a beautiful memory captured, but it really goes to show how important laughter is. 10403638_10101739561556647_3030907591696451872_n

10 First Date Ideas!


We all know that the first date is always a little nerve wracking! We wanted to give you guys some ideas on how to take some of the pressure off. There is obviously nothing wrong with getting dinner on your first date, but doing something totally out of the box can make the experience much more exciting!

 Bring out your competitive and fun side by taking your date to an arcade or fair. This helps you guys to unwind and have some fun while still getting to know one another! As long as your date isn’t too competitive, it could be a really fun night!

 Instead of going to one place and having your typical dinner, you can start at one restaurant for appetizers, the next for the entrees, and the last for the desert! Its like three dates in one! I have done this before and I must say, it is a blast!

 Animals always bring out the loving side of people. Why don’t you head to a local animal shelter and spread the love? It could be a great icebreaker!

 Rent some bikes and ride through the city with each other. You guys can get some exercise while getting to know one another.

 Score tickets to see a concert! You guys can sing your little hearts out to your favorite song, and the rest will fall into place.

 Take a road trip to the next state over and try something new together. Stop at places that stand out on the side of country roads and be as adventurous as possible!

 Take a cooking class together. Come on ladies, who doesn’t find a man that can cook extremely attractive? Lets test the waters a little bit and see what they can do!

 Set up your own personal wine tasting at your house. This allows you guys to save some money while also keeping the romance there! Who doesn’t love some wine?

 Take a day trip to the beach and walk on the boardwalk! Indulge in some fatty foods. Boardwalk fries, ice cream, pizza! Go into the stores and try on funny hats and sunglasses! Let loose and be silly for the day. Everybody needs a little fun in his or her lives.

 Go to a local farmers market and pick out some awesome ingredients for a fancy dinner later on in the evening. You guys will have the whole day to get to know each other so that later on in the evening you can loosen up a bit and crack a bottle of wine! Again, wine is GOOD!
