I Believe In....

 
I believe in yellow.

I believe the best form of exercise comes in cartwheels, handstands, and that ugly type of laughter.
I believe in dancing to the cupid shuffle whenever the opportunity arises. DO NOT PASS THIS UP. It’s that important.
 
I believe in dressing your best when out in public. You never know who you may run into.
 
I believe in sweatpants for all of those times you aren’t in public.
 
I believe in acting like a woman. 90% of the time.
I believe that sometimes the only thing you need to make yourself feel better is a real, genuine, heartfelt cry.
 
I believe in hugs.
 
I believe in Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice.
 
I believe in driving with the windows down. No matter the temp.
 
I believe in sleeping in. But not past 9.
 
I believe in eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara. More so than that, I believe in concealer.
 
I believe in star crunches, pizza rolls, and old school popcorn.
 
I believe in firm handshakes.
 
I believe in the motto “this too shall pass…”
  
I believe in cheese. Lots and lots of cheese.
 
I believe in classy photo opps.
 
I believe in blankets, hot tea, and bubble baths on rainy days.
 
I believe in a clean and uncluttered house.
 
I believe in Jesus and His written word.

I believe in having a glass (or two) of wine. Daily.


I believe in hanging up the phone when somebody drops the F bomb on you.
 
I believe in Nelly, Juvenile, Jason Mraz, and Hunter Hayes Pandora radio stations.
 
I believe in running your blog like a business.
 
I believe in boy time.
 
I believe in giving compliments to total strangers.
 
I believe in the P90X Ab Ripper X video.
 
I believe in girl time.
 
I believe in your mom jokes.
 
I believe in building up a dependable savings account.
 
I believe that children were made to teach adults how to love deeper.
 
I believe in singing loud. No matter how terrible your voice is.
 
I believe in grace, mercy, and forgiveness. Without it, we’d all be screwed.
 
I believe in teeth whiteners and/or teeth whitening photo editing features.
 
I believe in wearing short shorts and wedges.
I believe that the most dreaded moments end up being some of the best moments.
 
I believe in eating macaroni and cheese whenever the craving strikes.
 
I believe in mornings alone at the beach.
 
I believe that joy is a choice. A choice that I want to choose daily.
 
I believe in living the heck out of this beautiful life.  
 
What do you believe in?
 
Link up below and let me know.

  26. Is the bridge picture in Nashville?!! It looks an awful lot like down town!! This is such a cute post and i cant wait to be able to sit down later and do my own!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nothing like a little positive boost and a smile to start the day off right. Thanks, Erin!

    I believe that a little eyeliner, mascara and lipgloss work wonders. I believe that your child's smile can make a terrible day into a better one. I believe that boots/scarves and chilly, fall weather are the bee's knees. I believe that mistakes are some of the best learning tools because they not only teach you lessons but show you what not to do and how to improve yourself/a situation. I believe that Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks should be available all year long. I believe that a facial and massage can make you feel like a brand new woman. I could obvs go on and on, but I think this will do haha.

  53. Giving strangers compliments is awesome-- you never know when someone is at the end of their rope and it will make a mega difference in their universe. I wish I could do a cartwheel. I tried once, and separated my shoulder.

  54. I recently discovered your blog thanks to PinkLouLou, and I've been having a blast reading it. You make a lot of great points and there's so much stuff you've said that I completely agree with. The best part is when I (for real) laugh out loud while reading. Also - Star Crunches are SO good! What the heck? I haven't had one in years....time to go to the grocery store :)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
