thankyou thankyou! i loved reading all of those comments. i am happy that so many people feel the way i do. even though my examples were all about magazines, i hope that i made it clear that really anything (including blogs) can be detrimental for our self esteem. i think know that we all compare ourselves to different things for different reasons. the biggest point that i wanted to make is that paying attention to when you may be more vulnerable to pressure and comparing, really helps in keeping your spirits high. on top of that, i do believe that the media is getting worse and worse and i have big goals for what i want to teach my little girls.
on kind of the same note, what i surround myself with can totally make me feel happy, motivated and inspired! i have quite the list of projects. it never ends and i actually love that. i can't believe how many talented people there are out there. it's also really fun to do crafts and projects with friends. oh girl time. its just a necessity for me. very therapeutic.
in my other news, grant is out of town. let me just say that reading back in the archives of your own blog is not something i recommend to those with husbands out of town. no. no. definitely not a good idea. i would recommend sleeping on his side of the bed though. it might make you feel safer. might. anywho while he is gone i plan to do a lot of girly things. make a wreath (my girlfirend sasha made the cutest one EVER and she is totally lame for not putting pictures of it on her blog. something she should definitely be bragging about.), get my face waxed because i have a mustache and a beard, shave (kind of a big deal) and make lots of yummy treats. speaking of yummy, trudy has been making this green drink alot and it inspired me. best green drink i've ever had! i've made it every day for a week and a half. we took a raw foods class together a couple weeks ago and it was so fun. did you know that one ounce of wheatgrass has equal nutrients to 2lbs. of vegetables? crazy. i also plan to take a really long bath. last week i recieved this, this and this. chloe's mom found out that i love (love, love, love) LUSH and surprised me with these. still can't get over it. cutest gift everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. who just does that? so thankyou staci!
p.s. tune in to bijo for a tutorial on my homemade bib necklace.
