I Believe In...

No Awkward & Awesome Thursday this week--I know you're thoroughly depressed.  
My grandma has been doing really bad this week (they aren't sure if she'll pull through), so I don't have it in me to be try to be funny today.  Instead, I'm linking up with Erin for I Believe In...

I believe in...working your butt off in hopes that, someday, it will pay off.

I believe without facebook, twitter, pinterest, or instagram. 

I believe in...long distance relationships.

I believe in...being a creeper taking pictures of complete strangers.
(Speaking of, I have some good ones for you next week)

I believe ability to do anything I set my mind to.

I believe in...the friendships I have made through blogging.

I believe in...the unceasing love of a family.

I believe in...retail therapy.

I believe in...spoiling myself. Someone's gotta do it, right?

I believe  Even if I have to sell my firstborn child to afford it.

I believe in...big bows. Little girls should never leave the house without a bow in their hair.

I believe in...long hair.

I believe in...bobby pins, sock buns, and spin pins. 

I believe in...setting my cruise control at 4 mph over the speed limit. 
I do not believe in my ability to get out of the ensuing speeding ticket.

 I believe in...disposable plates and silverware.  Screw washing dishes. 

I believe in...myself.

I believe in...mascara.  Seriously, I don't know a blonde who doesn't!

I believe in...the power of heels...even if they are painful.

I believe in...laughing until you cry. 

I believe in...memories.  I will cherish the times I had with my grandma, and I believe that when she passes, she will know that she was loved.  I will never forget her (always) red lips, her heels and handbags, her love of jewelry, her spunky attitude, or her willpower.  I love it when people tell me I'm just like her--it's quite a compliment!



  1. Your grandma sound amazing. I'm so sorry for the hard times you're going through. Prayers going up for ya.
