Confidence Beads

As usual, I was trolling the internet, and came across this website for jewelry beads, similar to Pandora beads.

Notice anything special about the logo?

Glad to know I’m a trendsetter.

A Niffie Crown

I don’t Facebook stalk, but I do read my feed, and see what is going on in my friends’ lives. I noticed that one of Jen’s friends was getting a tattoo, and that she was posting pictures soon. I never thought anything about what it may be of, just that she was getting another tattoo.


Angie, Our Tree Topper

I don’t know how you and your family celebrate Christmas, but in our house, we have lots of rules and traditions, many of which pertain to the beloved Christmas tree.

Some of these rules include:

  1. Tree goes up on Daddy’s birthday
  2. Angel topper goes on first
  3. I have to wear the tree skirt as my own skirt while helping to put on the lights and garland
  4. Garland must be thrown, not placed, on the chandelier
  5. My tiny pony ornament goes on a bottom branch, on the right side of the tree
  6. “Scary Santa” ornaments go in the back of the tree
  7. Mommy puts on the Mouse Trap ornament, circa 1996

There are many more, but that would require a whole second blog.


BFF Tattoo

I’ve had this image for a while, but I totally forgot to share it with you.

As you may know, many of Jen’s friends have gotten tattoos in remembrance of her. Jennifer’s best friend got a beautiful tattoo for her, and got it done on Jen’s birthday, November 3rd.


Three Months…

Three months.

Wait, what? That’s all? It feels like it was yesterday. No, wait. I lied.  It seems like eons ago. Three months? Seriously? wtf?

How can something feel like it was so long ago, but feel like yesterday at the same time? I don’t know how that is even possible, and I’m pretty sure there is a law of physics I’m breaking, but that is how I feel.


Busy, busy, busy

Yes, I’ve been busy.

I feel like there is so much that I want to talk about, but I just haven’t had the time to sit down and blog about it.

Some of the topics I was going to blog a lot about were:

  1. My awesome Cold Stone & Wendy’s date with Jen’s best friend
  2. Listening to the CD that Jen made for my Dad, filled with random songs that remind me of Jen
  3. I got my tattoos
  4. My Letter to the Editor got published on Sunday
  5. Tuesday’s pretty much suck


4 Tattoos… So Far

I find it very interesting how people cope with loss.

As of today, I know of four people who have gotten tattoos in remembrance of Niff. And I get my two in a week.

The first one I knew of was Jen’s friend who got the word “Confidence” above a tattoo she already had. She has a beautiful pink ribbon (for Breast Cancer) on her back, and she had work added to it. Its very simple and very beautiful.
