I don’t talk about my dad much. It’s uncomfortable and it takes a lot for me to uncover that part of myself. I don’t think I’ve allowed anyone in my life to really know that side of me because it seems too difficult to discuss.
Why am I bringing it up now?
Because I have this friend. She is just……lovely….amazing……strong………..and I truly admire her.
Today she said that her dad is going to get this HUGE award and family are able to attend, but because of flight tickets, it’s hard to scramble money that fast. But as a girl and having your father in your life, it just feels important to me to have my friend there. I will never be able to attend an award dinner for my father, or see him on another Father’s day, or have him come over and play with my children. I’ve missed out on SO much and it’s truly a sore spot on me. I just felt how important this is to her and I feel as her friends we can pull together to help her see her dad.
Yup. My goal. I figured if about 20 people donate…….oh about give or take $20……it should help…..so….I’m trying. She’s been there for me. Always checking in on me to make sure I’m ok. I know she is going through so much more than I am, but it makes me SO grateful that she is being there for me. I want to do what I can in return.
I know you don’t know her. I highly recommend you read her blog. You will be able to feel her strength and how inspiring she really is.
I don’t expect you to donate money especially for not knowing her. But all of my friends are so dear to me and I would do anything for them.
IF you feel in your heart that you would like to donate anything…even if it is simply $5……….I can’t even begin to tell you how AMAZING that would be. You can go here….
I want her to enjoy this time with her father. I feel that this will help me get out of this depression slump I’ve been in for the last 3 months. It hasn’t been terrible, but….I still feel this will somehow help me feel better knowing she is able to cherish this time with the first real man in her life.
Oh my gosh YAY IT’S FRIDAY!!!!!! Oh I’m SO happy…..What a week it’s been and I’m SO glad that this day is here because it means that it’s FINALLY coming to a close!!!
So my confessions for this week are:
♥ As I said in my previous post I was given some not so fun news this week. I won’t hear results till probably next week so for now I will be keep it quiet. But I will say that it does scare me. It was a lot for me to accept when I was diagnosed with Celiacs. Now that I may have other things on top of if really isn’t my cup of tea.
♥ I can’t believe that all of this is coming from a stupid fall down the stairs.
♥ I’m extra paranoid this week because now my 6 year old has pink eye. Lysol wipes have been a great buddy of mine. 🙂
♥ Even though this week has been emotional, scary, draining, exhausting, and depressing, I have received some VERY good news that makes me feel like I can conquer the WORLD!
♥ Unfortunately I can’t share what it is yet.
♥ But still one of the happiest news ever from such a dear sweet friend. 🙂 ( I know you are going to read this. Looooove yoooouuu!!!)
♥ Besides getting married and having kids of course. 🙂
♥ But I am also very happy because we are planning a trip to Disneyland this year. 🙂 Squeeeeeeeee
♥ If you don’t know me enough by now, my Disney obsession is HUGE.
♥ I was actually going to college to be an animator for Disney/Pixar.
♥ And I wanted to work at Disneyland as a side job. But….I had another baby….and plans changed.
♥ The next closest thing I’ll be having is a princess party my SIL and I are planning together this year. She is going as Snow White and I’ll be Sleeping Beauty. I seriously can’t wait!!
♥ I finally am getting the hubs into collecting the Disney Big Figs. So far we only have 3, but that will soon change.
♥ But we are naturally collectors and big time geeks anyways so it works. 🙂
I hope you all have a great weekend. I get to take care of a little pink eye child and maybe get a little break since it has been a long week.
They can be so fancy.
I obviously don’t have one, but they are still fun to wear. Hence my avitar.
So speaking of mustaches, I found some awesome stuff today……..
The most awesome shirt. And if you order this, you get a free mustache as well. You can’t lose!! (source)
Ok so what happens if your man can’t grow a mustache? It can be devastating. So how about a little something to build his confidence up??
Now you just have to watch out for all the ladies!! (source)
The king of the mustache….. (source)
And if you feel like being a smashing gent. here is your chance! (source)
I don’t know about you, but I’m always misplacing my keys. I’m sure this would help me tremendously. (source)
So I did actually buy the shirt above today and I’m super excited. My friend and I are going to wear them to a party and be fancier than everyone else. I hope they can keep up. 🙂
