Hi! I'm Andrea, mother of two, wife of one, and minion of Tina. Last year I included a picture of the worst outfit my mother ever made me wear, so this time it seemed I should admit to what I wanted to be wearing instead. In telling you a little bit about myself, I thought maybe it would be easier to tell you who I am not. Despite purchasing a new dress recently and having both a haircut and massage scheduled for today, that really isn't who I am. Don't believe me? Maybe some photographic evidence will help convince you...
Don't get me wrong, I was stylin' at age 4. Despite showing a bit of leg, my ponytails were awesome. What I wouldn't give for a pocket that large now to keep my stuff I always misplace.
At age 6, my fancy dress with the letters all over it did not keep me from dish duty. I might have secretly enjoyed it, having no idea the irony behind my glamorous life to come.
Continuing my long dress theme into the late seventies, with my mother by my side in minty, excellent hairstyle solidarity.
I can assure you that I had just come from the hairstylist in this fourth grade gem. I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing to admit. Remember wearing dresses just because? "Oooh, pretty tulips, glad I have dress on!"
This? Right here? Exactly what I still picture when I think of myself in a dress. Although I do not think I have worn mint green or a belted look since.
So do not picture this when I tell you I have a new dress and a hair appointment...
Instead, let that vision of slightly awkward wash over you, as that is pretty much who I am.
Come by my place and we'll talk about some random stuff, and set the bar low enough to trip over! In April I will be sharing my Seventies Serenade...a decade of great music! (In addition to the great styles shown here.)
Oh, I should probably mention my alter ego...she wears a cape and a pedometer and fancies herself to be a superhero...Pedomemom. She'd love to visit with you as well!
Andrea blogs at Maybe it's just me... Where you'll find yourself right at home. I assure you, it's not just Andrea who feels this way. When I read one of her posts I find myself saying, "Yes! Exactly!" while usually choking on and spitting (on my keyboard) whatever I'm drinking at the time...
~Tina, greatly blessed with amazing friends
P.S Speaking of blessings...on Wednesday, DL Hammon's Blitz Team descended upon Life is Good and brought an avalanche of comments and love to both me and JoJo (and I'm sure the Beer Boys were thrilled with the extra advertising!) Thanks so much for all of your sweet, encouraging and funny comments. You are much appreciated. As I am in full swing with A-Z preparations, I won't be able to visit all of you, but please know how much that meant to this stressed out co-host. THANKS.
