my thursday thoughts

Photo: Seriously going to buy these at my next eye exam! It's time for a FUN & crazy change (since I won't touch my hair much)! Yay!

To buy, or not too buy? That is the real question on this Thursday.

Since I am a big girl now, with a real job, with benefits and insurance.... MY OWN insurance, mind you... I kind of want to celebrate and bring back the cat-eyed glasses. Or are they already "back"? Either way.. whatever. I want them. Gotta have them ;)

I know I may not look as AWESOME in these glasses as those hotties in the magazines always do, but... I'm the type of girl, that if I like something... I'm gonna buy it. Even if I look silly.

Take these mustard pants for example; Caleb can't stand them. He claims they look nice on me, he just hates pants that aren't jeans (he is crazy). Let me rephrase that, he thinks they are "silly" and claims "fashion is so weird." ....goodness, I love him.

But do I care? Heck no. I rock those bad boys at LEAST 4 times a year ;)

Which brings me to my point...

I wish that people did more in life that truly made them happy, instead of what makes them feel "cool". It breaks my heart to see people do something that makes them unhappy just because its easier to pretend. Or when people act different around certain people because they want to maintain a good reputation. You know what I think? Its crap.

You know what, friends? YOU are unique, YOU are quirky, and YOU are beautifully made, by a God who wants you to embrace who He made you to be.

If you're happy? Do a jig. You're craving sweets? Get yourself a stinkin' Ben & Jerry's pint. You're feeling sad? Rent The Notebook and invite your best friend over only if she promises to bring chocolate.

Whatever it is that makes you happy in whatever situation you are in, PLEASE... do it. Just be you. I promise you will have the time of your life, being no one other than you.

Guess what else? The weekend is ALMOST here!
