Has anyone ever asked you, “If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?” When I am on a super tight budget , which is always…until I marry My-Future-Husband-Shia-Labeouf, I like to just go online and plan a trip for the hell of it. Here are a couple:
First of all, Thailand is the area that used to be Siam. Remember Siam, where Yul Brynner was king (Rogers and Hammerstein’s The King and I). I’m good with a weekend trip but I simply MUST see Siam Niramit!
It has been a fantasy of mine for quite some time now to go to Australia. After visiting the famous Opera House, I would flirt my way into some surfing lessons with one of the locals (ie my Sydney Weekend Boyfriend) and then end the night with some Yellow Tail wine at the Royal Botanic Garden’s.

Prompt: If you could meet any celebrity dead or alive, who would it be?
I am REALLY trying to read more! Even though I am getting addicted to more and more shows (thank you AfterBuzz TV), there are sooo many movies that I want to see and I am getting a little more crafty this year…or at least trying to. I’m also writing more! But there are a few books that I want to read this year:
I am going to update this post periodically to update which books I have read and maybe give my response to it.
Have you read anything on my list? Are they worth it, is there anything on here that you think I should not read. Crazy idea…if there is a book that you want to read and want to read with me and talk about it…like a cyber book club or something COMMENT BELOW! That could be really fun!
Do you love yourself, as is? Do you wish you were more comfortable in your own skin?
I will admit, that like most women (including supermodels) that there are some things that I would like to change. You know the length and texture of my hair or my waistline, the flap and shake of my arms and thighs. The funny thing is that most of those things I can fix…or at least attempt to. I started wearing wigs a few months ago so I can change the length and style of my hair by the hour if I want. Eventually I will lose all the weight and that will solve the other issues. Most people would say that because I do these things that I am not comfortable in my own skin but I think that I am.
I know that I don’t look like a supermodel and I’m okay with it. I am secure in my insecurities. Granted I’m not bold enough to be 265 lbs and wear a wear a crop top in public exposing ALL my belly flesh, but I applaud those that do.
I would say that I love myself as is. Not because of the additions and subtractions that I use on the semi daily. Insecure or not I have always had a different vision of my self in my mind then I did in the mirror. I have also worked very hard at being comfortable in my own skin, but it was never for my looks. I sometimes feel that I have a personality flaw that I can’t pinpoint. That there is something in my manner and behaviours that rub people the wrong way or causes them to rub me the wrong way. I’ll get upset for about 5 hours and then decide that I don’t care.
I’m sure that I would be more comfortable in my skin if I had skin that was more social acceptable. Not saying that I was paler or anything, just if I was the type of girl that more than a mother could love. But on the other hand, I would hate it it I was a cookie cutter kind of girl.
So in conclusion to all of my ramblings. Yes. I do love myself, and I think that I am pretty comfortable in my skin.
What do you think? How do you feel about this prompt?
So it is Valentine’s Day (2014) and I just wanted to say a few things. First of all, I can’t wait to meet you. As I am sure you know I am not a very patient person, but I’m sure we will link up eventually. I figured now would be as good a time as any to thank you for a few things and also to apologize for a few others. Let’s try the thank you’s first:
Now that I have buttered you up…I would like to apologize for the following
I’ve always thought of my self as a “Beautiful Mess” but I’m glad you stuck around and chose to love me because of it and not inspite of it.
Love You…More than you know
