Y'all. My life is forever changed, I accidentally tried on a pair of slacks at Ann Taylor Loft and they were petite - they fit perfectly!! I had NO CLUE I was petite, I thought 5'5 was pretty average, but guess not. Actually, maybe I'm only 5,4.5 come to thing of it - I guess I'm so used to rounding up I just really think I am 5'5. I want to go buy all new pants now, seems kinda dumb, but honestly I had no clue I was buying the wrong kind all these years and just walking around on my hims for no reason.
I actually went in trying to find a pair of navy slacks and they are forever sold out of my size, even online. Super annoying. I NEED navy pants in my life!

On my way home from running this one calls and says she NEEDS a haircut. I don't know where she get that from :) She's obsessed with Sweet and Sassy, I mean I get it, pink and glitter all over the place. She said she wanted her hair cut short, I was on the fence because ponytails are really easy, but half the time she pulls them out or they come undone and she looks a hot mess, so I let her do it. I'm so glad I did, she looks freaking adorable!! She has the perfect face for a bob.
She's really growing up so quickly lately, every day she seems more adult and it makes me sad. Then I remember how much more FUN she is, we can carry on longer conversations and jam out together in the car and I'm just so blessed that God sent her to me. I can't wait to see the woman she becomes - just not too soon.
I can still pick her up....barely. Heck if I play my cards right I'll still be picking her up when she's 12. #flexbreak
I just want to put something out there real quick - it was brought up on IG over the weekend and it's been bugging me so I wanted to just address it.
Money. I don't really like to talk about money, it makes me uncomfortable, but I feel like I have to state my feelings on this because otherwise y'all would have no idea my thoughts on this, if you even care. Someone brought up my sponsored posts and said she felt like my page was being taken over with ads and that she felt I was being less than sincere - that I shouldn't shill for whatever company throws me a bone. Now - I am not attacking this person so please don't try to stick up for me, but she's a regular reader whom I've known so this makes me wonder if more of you feel this way so that's why I'm addressing it.
Yes I do sponsored posts, but I've literally done like maybe 5 - considering how often I post I'd say my ratio is pretty dang low. I also have done a lot off free things for people, like my challenges, I give advice to anyone who emails me, and I put up free info on my blog weekly. If you've never blogged then maybe you don't really get it, but it's a LOT of work. Like a lot. I have a family, a full time job, and hour commute each way, and all my sweat seshes. I do it mostly because I truly want to help people and if you are gonna hate on me for making a few bucks, then oh well. I really never post things I don't love already, in fact I've tried things I've never talked about because they just weren't for me.
I find most of my most favorite products through blogs, so that's why I love to share the things I like - wouldn't you want to buy on a recommendation and not just trail and error? Giveaways are for you guys, I would love to send all of you something free, but I can't so I give you the chance to win it. If you don't care for it then just click away - that easy.
For some reason people get all huffy when they know you are making money from blogging, I get it somewhat because it seems like easy money, but it ain't easy. Blogging takes effort and time, both of which I give, I give up things like watching TV after the kids are in bed so I can get on FB and answer questions and run challenges for YOU. Hopefully you are able to see this a mutually beneficial relationship.
