Before I get into what I’m wearing – notice the Facebook icon on the right sidebar? I did it! I created a Facebook page! For those of you who don’t tweet or follow blogs with a reader, I hope you’ll “Like” me on Facebook so you can get updates when I post to my blog! And for those who do some or all of the above, I hope you’ll still Like me on Facebook too!
Quick shout out to my sister Sue who, when I showed her my blog loved it so much and was so proud of me, she posted it on Facebook which increased traffic to my blog like I’d never seen before. Thanks Sewage!

Presenting…my $2 Claire’s earrings! I love racking up on costume jewelry during their 5 items for $10 sales. I think I’m the only blogger who shops there. I might be the only person I know that shops there (besides my sisters because I tell them all my shopping secrets). I bought a matching necklace too, but I don’t wear matchy-matchy sets together. I wore the necklace a couple days ago with my H&M crop top.
And since I posted this close-up, see the second piercing in my ear? I got that as SOON as I turned 18 but I don’t even wear an earring in that second piercing anymore. I hardly wear earrings at all anymore actually. I feel like with a statement necklace and the arm parties I’ve been rocking lately, earrings would be overkill.
Following that event, I walked into a tattoo parlor. My parents were ultra, ultra conservative so as soon as I was legal, I wanted to do something (else) to rebel. Yeah. That was me. But luckily for my parents I was afraid of the commitment of permanent ink. I mean honestly, I get tired of things as soon as I own them so a tattoo would have gotten old for me in no time. But truly, it was lucky for me that I never followed through on the tattoo. I can only imagine what my 18 year old self would have gotten. Ok, it really wasn’t going to be THAT bad. I was going to get a tiny discreet bumble bee in honor of the nickname my sisters gave me – Bumble Bee.
I think back to what I was like back then and can’t believe some of the things I did. I’m SO looking forward to my daughter’s teen years.
