My 13 Year Old Self's Poem

So back in Jr.High I had a poem published in this random book “Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans” I almost forgot about it until I randomly stumbled over it today. I have been thinking a lot about what I am doing with my blog…my hopes and dreams…etc. I think finding this book today and hearing what my 13 year old self had to say was kind of like a wink from above telling me I’m on the “write” path…see…

What Have We Been Up To?

Trevor got some fresh kicks—check out that book bag! Yes, that’s a sloth riding a shark! I love my sweet big boy. He loves the color blue!  I’m exhausted and I’m noticing it’s a lot harder for me to hide! I did get some very inexpensive eye cream from ELF that has worked wonders. I would highly recommend!

Mom by day, tattoo artist by night. 

It’s a chilly Saturday in January…and we spent most of the day shopping for deals. My husband wants to try a new thrill…finding things to buy very cheep and flip to make a profit. I live on finding deals for the family, so I was down for the ride. We found a few mugs at Goodwill for $0.50 cents a piece that sell online for $10-$15. Cool right? We went to Gabe’s next and I found these really cool tattoos…
