All The Things You Never Needed To Know

This website was started with several goals in mind, the most important one being therapy. Not for the unfortunate souls who stumble upon this site, but for the two brilliant minds behind it.

We have spent countless hours entertaining, supporting, and laughing at each other, and felt that a blog might be a good place for us to dump all of our random mutterings. Somewhere that we could save and share all of our hilarious thoughts, stories, and photos. On a more serious side, we also thought writing things down would be good therapy and help make us better writers. Nothing personal, dear Internet, but this was all selfish, and to hell with you if you didn't like it.

Obviously, we hope that some of the things that we rant and rave about will entertain those of you out there, especially if you're so entertained that you feel compelled to click on an ad. Ultimately, we'd love to be able to thank this website for a night out on the town or a new pair of shoes (*wink, wink*).

On a more serious note, writing has always been a way for me to work out what I'm feeling, get things out, and move on. Unfortunately, the past year of my life has been extremely emotionally and physically trying, and I've looked to this site more for levity than therapy. Lucky for you all, today I've decided to take my life back, which means that hopefully, I'll be writing more around here that makes people want to visit this site on a regular basis (and maybe even click some ads! think of the shoes, people!) and get to know Bones and myself a little better. I figure if I'm gonna be sharing my deepest, darkest thoughts (and of course, the most shallow, don't worry, there is an abundance of shallow in my head these days) that y'all might want to know a little bit about who I am. If you don't, quit reading.

I think part of the problem I've had with really getting going with my writing on this site is that I have a very hard time defining "me" so that is where I'm going to start.

Today I am in a productive, list-making kind of mood, so I'm just gonna start typing and see where this goes.

  • I am a 28 year old mom to two of the awesomest dogs ever.
  • I am married to a man who's idol is Peter Pan. I love this about him.
  • I am an unrecognized princess. Ask anyone who knows me, they're cool with it.
  • I am (usually) the good kind of crazy.
  • I hate doing laundry.
  • I have the greatest friends. Ever.
  • I love shopping, I could turn a convenience store outing into a retail experience.
  • I'm not very good at being organized.
  • I'm lucky enough to be called "auntie" by two (soon to be three!) of the coolest kids ever.
  • I have a bad back. At 28. It is trying to take over my life, but I'm not gonna let it.
  • I love love love to travel. Anywhere. I don't just want to see the world, I want to experience it.
  • I love to cook for the people I love. Must be the maternal instinct in me. Give me a tormented soul, and I'll pull up a chair and some comfort food.
  • I'm an amateur photographer. Better than my writing, thank goodness.
  • I've been slapped in the face with a pickle. A real pickle. We'll talk about it sometime.
  • In the last year, I've gotten married, lost one of my best friends, had surgery, gained some new friends, gotten promoted, met new family members, and helped complete some major construction projects at home. Its been a busy year.
  • I still haven't taken a honeymoon. That is going to be a priority this year.
  • I have an iPhone and I love it.
  • I may be a little addicted to MySpace and Twitter.
  • I love rice krispie treats just as much as creme brulee.
  • Sometimes I still need my mom.
  • I love books. All kinds. If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments. I will read them.
  • I believe that you can never have too many friends or too much time to spend with them.
  • When I have a bad day, I buy shoes online. I also get shoes if I'm a good girl at the doctor.
  • I spend a lot of time at the doctor. It is emotionally and financially draining.
  • I love sparkly things.
  • I am a natural blonde.
  • My husband may be a saint. He has spent endless hours driving me to various doctor appointments, comforting me when I'm scared, and picking up the slack at home when I can't get out of bed. He even gets me ice packs for my ass. Isn't that sweet?
  • I believe that honesty and good manners will get you far in life.
  • Pedicures make me feel pretty.
  • I love lazy Sunday mornings with my family.
  • I can be selfish, irrational, and moody. I promise if you stick around you'll also see that I'm caring, generous, and fun.
  • I want to be a mom someday.
  • I am terrified of failing my loved ones.
  • I hurt, every day. It is exhausting.
  • Sometimes I say I'm okay when I hurt, because I think people are tired of hearing about how I'm feeling all the time.
  • I love good tequila.
  • I hate being cold, but I love getting snowed in with my hubby.
  • Coffee is worth its weight in gold in my house.
  • I love the beach.
  • I live in the mountains.
  • As I get older, I find more value in staying in with a few good friends than in a wild night out on the town. (although, the wild nights do have their place...)
I am hoping that throwing this out there will open me up to picking a point and writing about it. Any and all feedback is always appreciated. If you're an asshole, I reserve the right to ridicule, mock, or delete any crappy comments I don't like. This is my website, if you don't like it, don't come back. If you do like it, I'll try to make it worth your while.

Just thought I should tell you that this post made me cry...not really sure what kind of cry it is, but a cry nonetheless...I'll try to define it... I cried because I know I am lucky to have you in my life and lucky for the awesome people you have brought into my life. I cried because I hate that you are in pain every day and that's not fair. I cried because I miss you, your hubby and your furry children more than you know. I cried because we're not together right now gossiping (the healthy, good kind), having adult beverages in hot tubs, all while eating cheeseburgers and chocolate! And don't worry, I think we'll all get to Neverland one day...we may be 80 and hopped up on cool new drugs, but we'll get there! Muah!
