Confessions of a wanna be rebel

I've recently come to terms with something...

Something that I've been called since I was little...

Something that I resented, and totally believed I wasn't...

Turns out.. In FACT

I am totally a goody goody!

I know I know.. I've tried not to be...

I want to be a rebel

the "bad girl"

but the fact remains...

I don't think I have a rebellious bone in my body.

After reflecting on past events in my life...

Even when I TRY to be ...

I can't..


I like following the rules

I can't bring myself to park in the red zone

I married the second guy I ever kissed

I once got snarky with a cop who pulled me over... I wrote him a 2 page apology and took it to the police station.

If I've ever lied to you, I probably immediately told you..

I clean up after people I don't know in public places

I didn't drink a drop of alcohol until I was over 21

On my 21st birthday I had a milkshake

I got rear ended and told the insurance company they could list it as my fault because the guy who hit me was so sad

I like serving at the Ronald McDonald house, volunteering at my church, reading to little kids, and rescuing homeless animals.

Trying to think of ANYTHING sketchy that I do....

so here goes...

my rebel side...

I have a library book that is 6 YEARS over due

and sometimes when I'm by myself, I drive in the carpool lane.


I know

I'm a wild child

a few thoughts

My brother will be 40 on Monday

He's older than me, MUCH older

Seriously WAY older

Paige might be the nicest person I know.. no lie

I have learned this week when you think a door is open, don't slam the one you're at until your SURE that next door is going to stay open.. just saying.

Looks like I'm going to have some extra time on my hands.. oh what will I do

One of my closest friends is moving, and I haven't figured out how to deal with it yet. I've decided sobbing uncontrollably on her porch is not the way to go.. (it's most likely what I'll do though)

I want to go to Disneyland

My grandma's house sold.. not sure why , but it made me cry.

I am the heaviest I've ever been in my life.. this is bad.. very bad..

I love my Kindle Fire.  Best present ever!

I should have mentioned BEST PRESENT EVER  when I posted the ugly red shirt that my husband also bought... So he is credited for my best and worse Christmas presents :)

Tanner started water polo. HE LOVED IT!

Garrett and Paige may start as well.

Now that Marching band season is over, Fluffy needs to pick a sport.  Or some activity.  Besides olympic texting, and Full contact Mario Kart

Did I mention that my brother is turning 40.. he's older than me.. I'm younger... he's older...

I love my MUCH OLDER brother

The most fun I have is watching my kids do what they love. Soccer, marching band, whatever it may be... I LOVE it.

I may love it too much

Paige told me after her soccer game today. "No matter where I am on the field,  YOU are the only mom I can hear"... my voice carries.. what can I say. :)

I walked bouncily for 3 miles today.. Seems small, but for my tubby butt.. I was super impressed!
