My 2010 Year in Pictures


Reinventing Myself

Hey guys  the new year is vastly approaching and i have been doing so much soul searching. Am ready for some changes in my life .. am 32 and sometimes feel old  I know 32 is not old but i guess it goes with all you have endured in life. I partied  like a rock star in my 20s that by the time I hit 26 I was burnt out and  slowed my row  and got my life together.  I guess were am getting at as I notice sometimes I act like am this old ass women , and am not its a mind set not saying am going to go buck wild am just going to loosing up live life and stop being so up tight with things. Am so ready to kick this year to the curb  this hasn't been a good year so much has happen and it has been a emotional roller coaster am still trying to come to terms with my parent's divorce  who were with each other for over 16 years he was my step dad but   in my eyes  he was my dad...... Also coming to terms with the new man in my mothers life  its hard and things changed drastically my grandma took it the hardest she got depressed and had bad anxiety I guess I didn't have my time for myself to feel because I had to be strong for her and everybody else including my mom who needed her daughter and I had to be there on those sleepless nights... I know I got off subject  but its time for change in my life and am excited  for it =]

What are they thinking?? # 2

Can some one explain to me what the hell are they thinking to sell this crap! on a plus size web site???? This looks like something from a skinny chick web site. Unfortunate its not its from a plus size site. Not only can a big girl not wear this crap with out her gut hanging out of the shirt its not one bit flattering.  I personally think if you are going to sell plus size attire please do your home work  on what not to sell =X
