Thursday 13



Thirteen reasons I enjoy being a girl

  1. Shoes! What kind of world would this be without all the fun shoes? High heels, low heels, kitten heels, sandals. . .I could go on and on.
  2. Dresses! There is nothing that makes me feel more beautiful than putting on a dress and going out on the town.
  3. Makeup! Ah, sweet makeup. The bane of my checking accounts existence. I’m a sucker for any and every kind there is—especially if there is a . . .
  4. Gift with Purchase!!! Nothing makes me spend money faster than GWP’s. What? I spend $40 and I get $100 in free stuff?!? SIGN ME UP!
  5. Glitter! Glitter makes the world go round, people. Who doesn’t feel happy when they see a card—either homemade or purchased—with all those pretty little sparkles on it?
  6. Confetti! It comes in bubble bath form! They have shapes and colors for every occasion! I truly believe the whole world would be a much happier place if confetti just fell in front of us from the sky.
  7. Roses! Guys just don’t understand and/or appreciate the beauty that is one of these flowers. Nor do they understand the mood enhancement that comes along with them.
  8. Chick Flicks! Another thing that guys just don’t understand. I love the emotion that is associated with these. And I love that there can still be a belief in happily ever after
  9. Pajamas! Whether you like flannel or satin, there is nothing more comfortable—and occasionally sexier—than women’s pajamas. You boys take your flannel pants (or boxers) (or nothing), but I’ll take a satin chemise and robe (and marabou slippers) any day of the week.
  10. Being a mom. I know being a dad is cool and all, but I would much rather be a mom. We work HARD for our babies. Even if you adopt, there is much more emotion involved in being a mom. We’re attached to the little things as soon as they are a twinkle in our eye—even before that, maybe.
  11. Pink! Yeah guys are wearing pink shirts lately, but pink is a GIRL color. Pink can make my mood lift in seconds. Diva’s room is pink and I smile every time I walk in.
  12. Musicals! It’s OK for me to LOVE musicals. I won’t get harassed by my friends or called names because I love to sing along with Hello Dolly!
  13. Bubble Bath! I can find a scent of bubble bath to match any and every mood I’m in. And I can come out of the bath with a whole new outlook on life. Add in a terry cloth robe and come comfy slippers, and you have my version of heaven.

Why do you enjoy being a girl? Or, why do you enjoy being a guy?

Great list - I'm not much of a shopper, so it wasn't till you got to roses, chick flicks, pj's, pink, musicals and bubble bath that you really snagged me good! :)

Love your site, btw, colors and design are awesome and so is your blog title/name!! :)

Have a great day, I played too....

I agree with it all, however, I love purses a little more than shoes, but shoes are growing on me, too. I'm definitely a purse gal! And nail polish, although, with a toddler there isn't much time to do my nails, but I love painting my toes and wearing sandals. Oh, and bracelets and earrings! Well, jewelry of any kind.

I love being a girl!
