Some Things I've Decided

1.   I want to see more of the world.

2.   You never arrive.  Never.  We are works in progress.... forever.

3.   I need a pedicure.  Well... maybe not need.  I want a pedicure.  (These are not my toes they belong to
        one of the girls... which one I'm not sure, I have much bigger feet.)

4.  Porridge is the absolutely world's best breakfast.  My Papa was smart.

5.   Our basement floor will be decked out in light bleach oak laminate. (top left)  It's final.  It's bought. The blog world spoke and I listened.

6.   My nest needs some feathering.  Feathering that costs nothing.

7.   Taking photos allows me to stop time.

8.   Family should live close to each other... since cousins are the cooler versions of your siblings.

9.   It's really worthwhile to have a few good jokes you can tell easily.

      for example…  Why did the girl fall off the swing?
                               She didn't have any arms.

                     or....   There are two muffins in an oven.
                               One muffin says to the other, "It sure is hot in here."
                               The other muffin says, "Aaahh!!!! A talking muffin."

10. Getting a new haircut can change your life... if it's a good haircut.

11.  Normal is a figment of everyone's imagination.

12.  Speaking on the phone with a friend and texting on the phone with a friend, is like comparing prime steak to cold meatloaf.

13. Learning something new e.v.e.r.y. single day, is one of the ingredients needed in the recipe for


Pin It


  1. You always know what to say! Loving your floor choice - yes! And yes, talking on the phone, FAR better than texting. And i wish the cousins lived closer :)

  2. Getting a new haircut can change your life when it's a bad one, too.


    PS. And I agree about the cousins!

  3. Tell me more about this adorable top Oldest has on...

  4. Wish cousins lived closer and love the floor choice! Whoha!

  5. well, I've decided that the 13 things that YOU'VE decided are fabulous ... good inspiration right when I needed it, dana, thanks!

  6. seriously Ive said it before. . .but you are a wise woman!

    Love the idea that a photo stops time. . .
    Love a good haircut!!
    Love cousins. . .a how you said it is so very true!

    And texting vs talking. . .so true!

  7. 12 is so true. Well, they all are true, but 12 really hit home for me.

  8. Porridge with mashed banana and maple favourite!!! Well, after poached eggs. I LOVE poached eggs.

  9. I like 2 and 8. Was arguing the merits this evening of #11 as I was lobbying for a third honeys says only two is normal, not one and not three. I tried to use your fam as an example that three is good, but he denied it as he does not know you personally. Can I fly you all to Atlanta for a visit please?

  10. Is porridge the same as oatmeal - My favorite!!

  11. Amen right back at ya!
    Cute jokes!!!!!
    Love the pics and the insight!

  12. O my... I loved your quotes. especially the hair cut one, isn't that the truth? I just had a house full o' cousins and it was insane but in a good way. happy weekend to you. :)

  13. No. 7 made me cry.

    Still whimpering over it here.

  14. No argument here... but a BAD haircut can change your life too... :-D

    [In my sign post, the photography feared is of a dam. I did not show it. Most public energy or transportation type facilities around the world are now on security alert and guards will stop you from taking photos. The idiocy of it is that any satellite can show people with evil intention what they want to see.]
