Rain Rain On My Face

Keep linking up your How-To's HERE!
If you're here via Jen from, Welcooommme lovies!
She said she was going to mention the Holiday How-To on her radio show today... what sweetness! Did you guys know that Jen & I know one another in REAL LIFE? Gasp, I know! We went to the same High School & were on dance team together! Yes, the girl can bust a move & ugh huh, she's just as cute in person. Soooo, if you're not here from Jen's place & you've never been there... go there now & say hello! :)

I woke up today knowing that the day would be long.
I felt drained.
I'm hacking like your Grandpa because of this cold & my body just isn't up for much.
My glands are sore, my feet hurt from the shoes I wore on Saturday & my hair has seen better days.
I was feeling sorry for myself.
I sent WG a text at 3pm... "I'm sooo tired. This is the longest day ever."
Poor me.
I made it through the day(imagine that) & came home to my warm house & my warm bed.
I ate a nice meal & took a hot shower.
I talked to my cute boyfriend, emailed my BBB & watched some happy TV.
I tended to my funky hair, took some medicine & climbed in my cozy bed.
I opened my computer to catch up on my blogs &
just as my dashboard popped up,
my computer died.
"Ugh, freaking awesome."
I searched around for my adapter for a few minutes before realizing I left it in the car earlier.
"Crap, crap, crap!"
I slid on some shoes & ran downstairs.
As I hit the garage button I heard the rain begin to pour out of the clouds.
I looked for an umbrella, a bag, a towel... anything to shield my freshly coifed hair.
I rolled up my pants & decided to brave it.
As I dashed out across the driveway, I felt the rain begin to hit my skin.
Suddenly, I stopped.
Right there in the middle of my driveway.
I shut my eyes and turned my face towards the sky.
I laughed.
I cried.
I laughed because I cried.
I came back in and decided to let my hair dry naturally.
It will curl up & it will look crazy,
but I think that's just how God wanted it to look today.
I think he was reminding me that I have it okay.
It could be worse.
It could always be worse.
Life is great & crazy & tragic & scary & exciting & dull & perfection...
& It could always be worse.

  10. Hi Lace,

    I've been lurking around your blog this evening and enjoying your old posts although I have to say reading your fun, young, energetic posts makes me feel like an old mom. Love the Christmas letters to Santa Idea, ( I save tooth fairy letters and santa letters) your adorable how-tos and crafts, and your up beat posts.

    : ) fondly,
    pink and green mama

  11. Wow. I found your blog through SITS. I love it. Love your writing. Adding you to my bloglines! I look forward to hearing more from you and poking around the archives!

  12. And this is why you are my BBB. I just love you girl.

    And you most definitely have it okay. Better than okay.

    I had a crazy dream with you in it, and we got in a fight.

    Not good. =)
