Oops, You’re Not My Wife

I headed out to Target the other day (cuz we practically live there), and while perusing the sale racks this guy comes up to me and says, “Honey, what do you think about these shorts?” It wasn’t until he noticed that I had three small children with me that it registered with him that I was not his honey. “Oops,” he said, looking at my kids in confusion. “You’re not my wife.”

His wife popped out from behind another rack and said, “Look at her shoes – you should’ve known by those that she wasn’t me!”

Nope, it shouldn’t have been the fact that I looked NOTHING like his wife that tipped him off. It was definitely the five inch heels.

Except for the… [Continue Reading]

Here we go… straight from memory… Not sure if I’ll get all the randomness… [Continue Reading]

  • The other morning, I woke up – and right away it started. The whispers in my head… saying, “You’re not good enough. Your business will never succeed. You’re a terrible mother.” Lies. False words that I allow to creep in my mind, making me doubt everything I know. Telling me that I am not who… [Continue Reading]
