Where Has 20 Years Gone?

This next Saturday is my 20th high school reunion. I do plan on going (every other day). I just can't get over that is has been 20 years.

I can't say I am still friends with any of the except now through Facebook. I did have a high school sweetheart that I dated for 6 years that I haven't seen. That has a lot to do with my nervousness and the fact I hate being judged.

For the first time in forever my husband I got a chance to go out with a few other couples to a bar and guess who was there? High School boy! Talk about sh***ing my pants. How bizare. So, now that we got that out of  the way I won't have so much to be nervous about.

I guess I should just go and have  myself a good time. Did  you go to  your 20th? If so, how did it turn out?

Life Is Coming Back In Full Circle

I've been pretty quite on my blog for several million reasons. Mostly because I just haven't had the time or energy. I miss blogging and hope to get a schedule back in order soon.

My life have taken me in several different paths in the last few months. I have been unemployed, almost employed and still unemployed until last week. A home care company called me that I worked for 7 years ago looking for someone to work a case. I took it and now have a job.

My 20th high school reunion is in another week. I am pretty nervous. My high school sweetheart will be there and I am sure plenty of memories will accompany the night. Talk about full circle!

My husband is starting to play in a band that he played in 11 years ago when we first met.

Besides the four kids, it almost feels as if we are starting over again. I find it a bit scary and  yet comforting at the same time. We have been having a hard time without me working so maybe this is just our chance to start all over again.

Have you found yourself going full circle?

 Can you believe it is Monday morning again! Starbucks would like to help make your children's teacher's Mondays in September just a little bit less stressful. The following was on their blog.

So, thank  you to all the teachers for dealing with our children! Go get yourself  a welll deserved cup of coffee!! Make sure to have your teacher ID handy.

I Am A Fashion Faux Pas

Ok, so who came up with the rule that you can't wear white after Labor Day? I think this is the worst idea ever. I live for white capri pants during the summer. It is very hard to get them off of me when this time of  year comes. Not to mention all white shoes I have. Really?

I am stubborn and I won't stop wearing white until I am ready. I am ok with being a walking fashion faux pas.

How about  you? Do you put all your white away on time?

Obviously MARvelous

Matt Kearney "Young Love" Revew

Mat Kearney, Young Love

Mat Kearney – Young Love
Release Date: Aug 2, 2011
Genre: Alternative
Album Length: 10 tracks: 39 minutes, 27 seconds

I have been a fan of Matt Kearney for years now. So, when I was asked to review his most recent album I was really excited.
Mat Kearney is a Alternative musician from Nashville, Tennessee. This singer/songwriter has successfully had a total of 4 top 20 hits on the Adult Top 40 Charts.

Young Love is the fourth studio album and absolutely his best so far. I sat down to take a listen to this whole album. After being a big fan of Mat for a few years, I had to say I was a bit excited and had some high expectations for Young Love. The overall sound of the album is very similar to his previous albums; it has a upbeat feel to most of the tracks. His first single, “Hey Mama,” has fun claps, beats and lyrics. His more slower songs, such as, “Learning to Love Again” are said to be some of his best songs found on this collection. This song was written as a simple and intimate letter to a hurting friend, it is also personally my favorite song on the album.This long awaited album is definitely worth a download. He met my expectations and more!

Disclosure: I am a member of One2One Network and was given this album to review. All opinions are my own. I truly love this artist and album!
