learn something.

Me &my Little Sister ♥

Silly Lessons...
+ Apparently it is totally normal for guys to have bodily functions and needs such as going to bathroom  and, burping and lets just say it farting.... but if a girl does it, it is the end of the world. Even if she is in the privacy of her own home, in her bedroom.... thanks Trevor.

+ I guess I need to check how I am dressed before I leave the house, I went to the gym with my pants on inside out. They were spandex pants so lets just say it was pretty noticeable with the large seems going down my butt with the tag hanging out like a tail. Of course I didn't notice until we got home.

+ I thought you couldn't have nice things until after your children grew up. I guess you can't have nice things until after your husband grows up. (the list would be horrendous if I told you all the things Trevor has broke since we have been married, BAH!)

Serious Lessons...
+ Words that do not match deeds are unimportant - Ernesto "Che" Guevara

+ Only I have control over how I feel. I need to stay more positive and not get so worked up over everything little thing. This will make life much more enjoyable, and less stressful. I have been doing these 7 second long breaths in and out at night before I go to bed. Doctors say it will help you relieve stress, and I have found it really does make you feel better. Try it.

+ I love my family &they are never going anywhere. (Some lessons you need to remember every day.)

+Life is precious, and we need to come together when things get hard. I was an exchange student in Japan, so this really makes me sad. Japan is such a beautiful country full of beautiful people.
My heart goes out to everyone effected by the disasters that happened this morning!!

Thanks for joining along guys, if you haven't already done so, link up your Friday lessons learned! 


  1. Those are all so true. I do the breathing at night and my husband always teases me saying it doesnt work. It So Does! Glad I am not alone!!


  2. Great advice! And I completely know what you mean about silly #1 and I have definitely experienced silly #2.

    So sad about Japan, I have family there in Northern Japan - its very scary. My prayers and thoughts are with them <3

  3. its soo true about girls and bodily functions! Guys get away with sooo much more!

  4. i have to work of being in control of my feelings too.
    wise words :)

  5. Very wise indeed! And yes guys shouldn't be able to do what they want..us girls have "needs" too :)

  6. such a great idea! check my list out :)


  7. Great post idea! I think it's such an important lesson to learn that we are in control of how we act and react, and how we feel.

    And my cousins live in Japan, thank goodness they are OKAY!!! Don't mess with mother nature, so scary!


  8. So true! And it's apparently the end of the entire universe when you accidentally burp in a guy's face just after kissing...yeah, not awkward at ALL. hahaha

    I love all your lessons, but ESPECIALLY the second serious one! Sometimes it's easy to get carried away :-)

  9. Live is definitely precious....praying for all of those affected in Japan!

  10. Gonna try that seven second long breath thing tonight! Need some stress relief lol.

  11. Everytime I hear about another tsunami my heart sinks =( life is so short and so precious -- we need to enjoy it and relish it b/c mother nature is a beast...

  14. ohhh... this post is just wonderful!♥

  15. I hope all of your friends in Japan are safe and well. This is all horrible. :(

  16. My absolute favorites: "Life is precious, and we need to come together when things get hard" and "Only I have control over how I feel". Love these. I missed this week's link up party, but I'll be sure to link up next week! :)

  17. Genuine advice. I love this post & photos :)

    Cheers to sisters. xoxo

  18. I love the Che Guevara quote! Have you ever seen the Motorcycle Diaries? Such a good movie!!

    Also...about your "only I have control over how I feel" comment: so true! I literally just did a post about happiness and how it really comes from inside us not from any external circumstances (if you're interested http://rantsravesrandomocity.blogspot.com/2011/03/come-on-get-happy.html)

    Good luck with staying positive!

    I really dig the blog!


  19. “Who you are speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you’re saying.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Your Che Guevara quote reminded me of this Emerson one. These are some pretty important (and silly) lessons you have learned! Keep them coming. We can all learn from others life lessons :)
