For Thursday, August 4: Little Moments

So Brad Paisley has landed on this experiment a time or two already BUT I had to do this song. HAD TO.  I love this song and I love the video to it almost as much! It's so worth watching while you are listening to the song.  It reminds me of "When Harry Met Sally" and the couple interviews that are scattered throughout the movie.  I love those couple interviews.  Paisley takes the idea and incorporates it into this video and at the end the couple interview is with him and his wife, Kimberly Williams. 
I have heard this song lots and had even seen the video before (I realized when I started to watch it again the other day) but I really loved watching the video and listening to the song with Lanny.  :)  My sweet husband can relate to every single little weird thing the women in this video express and almost everything Brad Paisley sings about.  Appreciation in marriage comes from the small, little things not the grandiose.  I'm fortunate to have a man who "likes" (puts up with?) all my weird stuff and really believes he loves me for them! (Ha!  Boy do I have him tricked!)  Sometimes I do or say something that I know drives Lanny nuts (and not in the good way) but yet within minutes, sometimes seconds, he's letting me know how much he loves me.  It's the little moments.  Mark my words, Lanny and I are gonna be one of those couples in a couple interview like in the movie or in a video someday!  And you know what?  I hope you and your spouse will be too!  Have fun with each other and enjoy the ride!

Are things happening to you or are you making things happen?  The difference between the two has to do with belief in self and the willingness to simply ask or take a step forward. 
Today's #MakeItHappenMonday thoughts come straight from this article I ran across. 

I'm not good at making things happen, I am lazy - fearful - insecure and just wait for things to happen to me. Not ideal I know. In fact, if I want to live a life that just happens and invites me to participate every so often then my attitude is perfect! But when I hear myself complain about things happening to me then it's not so perfect after all is it?

You've probably said it before, and I'm sure you've had it said to you, "it doesn't hurt to ask." That's true if you are a person who makes things happen. But if you are a person - like me - who waits for things to happen then the asking seems out of line or fear inducing or something uncomfortable.

So what kind of person are you?…


I get accused of being stupid with some of the things I do. For example, one time I assembled these superhero packets...for adults. I put in a color-your-own mask, a power cuff (fine it was a bracelet but go with it), some motivating thoughts about what it takes to be a superhero, and a way to devise their own superhero name. I made the packets colorful and superhero-ish. I included a note about why they were getting the packet (hint - because they matter and they are superheroes). There were grumblings over how stupid I was to make the packets and hand them out. The thing is, I didn't just hand them out for the mere sake of being silly (although I don't think there is anything wrong with that) but I did it because I had a message I wanted the people to receive. A message I knew most of them needed to hear. I had a reason, I always have a reason.
Don't be shy about being thoughtful - even if you think it might come off as stupid. Just be thoughtful in some way, you won…


Let's talk about style. Not current fashion but those fashions we sported back in our younger days. You know those days - when we thought we looked G.O.O.D. *wink* 
In the spirit of the day here's a few photos of my stellar fashion sense back in my day. 
August 1983 - I LOVED this dress, I wore it a lot and I thought I was quite the cutie in it! 
I'm not just outing my fashion sense today but my brother's as well - look at his shorts and socks! Hahaha! And then there's me. I remember this outfit very well - I put a lot of thought into it. I was definately going through a pink phase - you can't see it here obviously but my entire bedroom was pink walls - as in bubblegum pink - along with white wallpaper that had pink hearts on it. This was in July 1986. 
Huh. I just noticed that with the posting of this picture and the two above there's a lot of pink. I must have liked it much more than I thought. To be fair this sweater I'm wearing in September of 1987…
