I'm Moving!!

Not houses. Blog spots. {sigh of relief for those that would miss me too much if I left town...}

After lots of thought, I have decided to expand my blog to allow for a more well-rounded picture of myself. Lots of posts that I had for Brownie Bytes didn't make the cut because they seemed too...trivial. I always felt that the Brownie 'bytes' had to be of a certain category ('And what would that be?' you probably wonder).

Well, now I want to break out of my self-defined cage and probably annoy some people with my ridiculousness. If you want to join me in that, head:

HERE--> Princess and the P

{The premise is a blog with my commentary on all aspects of life, annoyingly alliterated (is that a word?!) with the Letter P--and no, this is not Sesame Street}

If you are not so much into hearing my commentary, then let's part ways here old friend. But know that you will miss me. So when you do, go:


Love you all and thanks for reading my musings for the last half-decade. *gulp* I will keep this blog up and running for my own archival purposes, and so that I can laugh at my 25 year old self when I ranted about singleness. ha!

New address for future reference:

Blog Envy.

I've been reading all kinds of blogs during this "Snowpocolypse 2011" and I have to say that the green-eyed monster has reared its ugly mug a time or two. I see all these precious stay at home moms/entrepreneurs/stylish crafty people and I confess, I wish that was my life sometimes. They have loads of blog traffic, ads & sponsors, cute DIY projects and monthly giveaways (I can't even afford to have a GET-away, much less a GIVE-away!)

In all of this, I have continued to come back to the thought that the Lord has made me uniquely...not to be like someone else, but to write and create from what I know; to write/create from my heart. After reminding myself of that, I managed to give ol' green-eyes the snow-boot.

So, since I'm too lame to host my own stuff, I'm gonna link you to a giveaway from another cute gal's blog (and selfishly, blogging about it enters me for a chance to win one of my favorite designer's poppy-licious flowers--look, I said my motives were selfish, all right?!)

Thanks for those who read my thoughts...even if it is only 4 of you. You are cherished all the same.

Either I'm old or I'm just lame

I went to a New Year's Eve party last night and had a great time. As the night wore on, I started to get the sneaking suspicion that I was maybe the oldest person at the party. Or, I'm just lame. Here were 7 clues that got me thinking:

7. Most of the teachers I talked to were just starting to teach...I was wondering how I've lasted so long in this profession.

6. When a drink spilled, everyone just left it. My first thought was concern for the hardwood floor's finish. Thankfully, an older guy ran to clean it up. Perhaps we were on the same wavelength?

5. I was the only person quietly singing along to Morrissey before they changed it to the Cupid Shuffle.

4. I had to sit out of most of the "group" dances. I mean, it's not my fault that no one has taught me how to dougie...I'm still stuck on soulja boy.

3. When the Macarena came on (which, sadly I DID know), someone commented, "You guys remember this from our 6th grade dances?" My reply was, "Well, I remember it from my senior trip to Cancun, but yeah." Class of 96, holla!

2. I knew all the words to "Ice Ice Baby", which WAS actually from my 6th grade dances.

But this was the kicker:

1. When Journey's "Don't Stop Believin" came on, half the room groaned (though I was not one of them). As one girl was leaving the dance floor, she said to me, "That's OK, I don't like Bon Jovi anyway."

So much for staying relevant, huh?
