Well Everett is taking his glorious afternoon nap so I thought I would write a little blog while the boys were watching their show.

I was recently browsing through some heels online and I figured I would share some. I know this isnt going to be interesting to everyone who reads this blog, but Im gonna do it anyway. Because Im good enough, Im smart enough, and doggone-it people like me!

The first thing is a pair of heels that I could picture myself wearing with anything!! Except maybe a pair of sweatpants, but who knows, I could start a new trend. Rolled up sweat pants and some hot high heels!! I would call it trailer chic!

I think its because they are sparkly!! And the hot pink and black helps too.

I also have been trying to find a swimsuit that is a "pinup" style. I think because you dont have to look like a waif to wear one. Now that Ive had kids, whenever I come within 100 feet of a swimsuit store I break out in hives, sweat profusely, and have a sudden urge to find a large rock and hide under it. So needless to say Ive had the same bathing suit for about four years now. Sad I know.
But I love love love this one! And the fact that its in red makes it even better. I picture myself laying on the beach with my hair pulled back in a cute bandana, sipping on a mint julep and wearing my fire engine red lipstick. In what world this scenario would ever exist who knows, but a girl can dream!

This one is a very close second!

Last but not least I have always wanted the "little black dress" but have never been that fond of black clothing. I dont know why, I just dont like it for myself. I feel so bored in it. So I am always looking for something that could replace it. Something with lots of color (or sparkle, since God knows if I was born a man I would have been a drag queen!). So this is one that I found that I love love love

Well theres Everett, awake and crying....back to reality ;)

Sometimes when I have a dream that seems real to me it gives me this sort of "life means more than we know" feeling. I once had a dream where I had traveled to India. While I was there I was traveling through a vast desert of nothingness. It wasnt a brutal desert like you see in the movies. It was more of a cool sort of thing. Not to hot or uncomfortable. I hadnt seen anything for miles and then all of the sudden a scene emerged. I came across what looked like a school. The buildings were all a washed out sort of aqua color, but nothing was elaborate or decorated. It was just the walls with open doorways (no doors) and a light peaceful breeze was blowing through empty concrete like rooms. The whole atmosphere was "breezy". It was like I had arrived at the quietest place on earth. When I came into the area where the building was I noticed three or four yogis sitting on these low to the ground fabric swings. They were all very tall but the yogis sat only an inch or two from the ground in them. They were all in some kind of meditation. All very quiet and still.

The dream never went much further than that, but it was one of those dreams that you feel every emotion and see everything in it like it really is happening, and you wake up feeling like it really did happen. It was a wonderful dream because it was so peaceful. And I have always wanted to somehow get back to that place. Then I started to think that place was in my soul, and although chaos and constant noise may always surround me, I can find that place within my being. When I get overwhelmed sometimes I visualize that scene and I am instantly relaxed.

What reminded me of that dream was a site that I was looking at that was showing indoor swings. Swings that you put in your house or apartment and just sit and relax in them. I wasnt really aware that they existed but now I really want one!!
