There is a tiny thing I wrote quite a while ago... A list of the advice my mother repeats to me. I originally posted this blog in August of 2010. But it makes me laugh and it's Mother's day so I thought I'd share it again...
Things your Mother may not have taught you but mine did:
- Don’t leave things lying around. Invite people into a peaceful place, no one needs more chaos.
- What’s not to like about you? Don’t hide in baggy clothes. Wear clothes that fit.
- Choose your friends carefully. Men can be pigs, but women can be far worse.
- Organic Apple Cider Vinegar gets rid of allergies and gives you beautiful skin but you must drink it. Everyday.
- When choosing perfume, remember that men are drawn to vanilla based scents. I don’t remember where I heard that. Probably on Oprah, so it must be true.
- There is no rush and you can be anything you set your mind to but keep in mind that I would like grandchildren before I’m too old to enjoy them.
- Trust me, finding the perfect fitting bra will change your life.
- If anything goes wrong, this is your Father’s visa card number.
- You should always have an even number of children, it’s just easier. This way they can raise each other.
- You like your hair better long.
- Never sleep on your side, it gives you wrinkles.
- A brisk walk does wonders for your mood because sometimes you just need to sweat it out.
- Finding a fabulous pair of shoes is an investment in your future.
- Diet Coke is so bad for you that it should be labeled “Liquid Satan”.
- Marry the one you have the most fun with but don’t cook dinner every single night. It sets a precedent that you’ll live to regret later.
- Remember, you are a lady. Work hard and show all those boys what you are really made of.
- Always wear clean underwear. Heaven forbid you get hit by a car.
- Call me when you get there.
And, in honor of Mother's day, here is your journal prompt for the week:
