Pep Talk

{via}

You'd think that one of the best compliments I've ever received in all of my 23 years, would be from my stud hubs.
On some days, you might be right. On other days, when my hair is all jungle-lady-ish and there was no "beauty" in my "rest," I fondly and firstly remember the wisdom an old sage,(cough. homeless man. cough), once shared with me.

Like a walking fortune cookie, this man was.
All of life, love, and other mysteries were revealed.
The heavens opened.
Sunlight poured through.
It was all rainbows and butterflies, my friends, as he spoke these profoundly life-changing words upon my soul:

"Daaaaaang girl, Tyra Banks ain't got nothin' on you!"

It may or may not be my new morning mantra.

Seriously. Post-It on your bathroom mirror.

Good to go.

P.S. Hope you all feel beautiful today and everyday!

xoxo

Compliments from strangers are the best! Nowadays, they are mostly directed towards The Kid, but back in my heyday, I had a guy follow me around a Barnes and Noble just to tell me that I was beautiful. It was creepy at first, until I figured out that he wasn't hitting on me, and then it made my whole year. :)

Awww! I love this! What a good hubby he is! I also laughed out loud when I read "jungle-lady-ish" because my hubby calls me "jungle girl" when my hair is a disaster in the morning!
That poster is lovely, I'm going to go click the link to find it now =)

I've spent the better part of ten minutes perusing your little corner of the Internet. I think I might be borderline obsessed with you. And I mean that in the least creepy way possible.

Elizabeth and Kyle said...

This post seriously made my day. You are hysterical! And I'm SO putting this on my bathroom mirror!!! I'll let you know how it goes...

Amber M said...

I LOVE the idea of anything that includes Daaaaaang girl as a morning mantra! Maybe I can get my dear J to say that to me every day? I'd even throw a little hip swivel into my walk as a reward for him! :)
