Lessons life has taught me, and other observations

Sometimes "NO" is an acceptable answer.

Don't cut people off in traffic, and if someone cuts you off.. don't flip them the bird.. because maybe just maybe they were having a rough day, and the kids were fighting, and they dropped their phone into a thirstbuster, and just for a second was distracted.. I'm just sayin...

Bad things happen, don't let them define you.

Get the "great wall of chocolate" at P.F. changs, you know you want to.

Have a "Yes" day with your kids. Just don't tell them when it is.

Know then names of all your kids teachers.

No one can hurt you, unless you let them. A wise woman once said "choose not to be offended".

Treasure your relationships, but don't let any of them become your "Jesus".

Nap every chance you get.

Love BIG.

Don't forget to be polite. It goes so far!!

Smile, let the old lady sitting on a phone book to drive, back out of the Albertson's parking lot before you, seriously you probably want to give her a head start anyway.

Watch cheesey movies, eat junk food, and laugh, at least once in a while.

Having a friend you can call on, at anytime ever, is PRICELESS.

Always give an honest answer, unless the question is "does this make my butt look big?".

Don't shout at your kids from the sidelines during games. If they messed up, they know, and they don't need you embarrassing them in front of their whole team to drive that point home.

Don't yell at the coaches during games. Especially if I am the one coaching, I will straight up burst into tears in the middle of the field.. You have been warned.

Aduki beans aren't half bad, unless you horridly over season them.

When you take a step back and consider all things, life as a whole is actually pretty funny.

Speak your mind, but don't push your opinions as facts.

Don't let me cut your hair.

Keeshonds have very small brains.

My life is fairly amazing, and as close to perfect as I think I could imagine it being.

Be graceful, have fun, and don't sweat the small things.

Candy corn should be considered a vegetable.

It's okay to do random high kicks and cart wheels.. it keeps people on their toes.

Most things have a punchline.. you just have to find it.
