#100BlogPosts - Post #2: Latina's Perfect Snuggly Boo

I was sorting through a box I found in the back of my closet and found this piece of paper that I'd written 10 things that make the PERFECT snuggly boo (BAE, boyfriend, boo, lovebug,etc.) It was apparently written a while ago but the things on my list remain the same. These are in no particular order. 

Must have a belief system including morals and values that are compatible to mine. He can't worship the devil, he can't belong to a cult, he can't be so devoted to his religion that he despises me if I miss a Sunday (and trust me I will miss a Sunday or two....or three). As long as he knows that I'm a good person and I always try to choose right over wrong and I know the same about him...we're

Must be cute (to me). 
If you were to look at the guys I've dated/pined for you will see that they have few, if any, physical characteristics in common. I don't care if other people think they're cute or not. I've dated guys who are black, white, light skinned, dark skinned, tall, short, skinny, plush, or any combination of the above. And though the picture indicates attraction of ...ahem.. a certain kind I'm not usually physically attracted to someone until I've been stimulated by the mentally. Unless, of course I'm not trying to have a full on relationship with them...

Must like children. 
This is kind of a DUH to me. Of course he must LOVE children, I have TWO! Plus at this age in the game, it'd be great if he brought a couple of his own into the equation to give me the big family that I've always wanted. My mother had 6 kids and siblings kick ass...literally, my siblings will kick your ass for messing with one of the others; but that's neither here nor there. I'm the mother to at least 250 kids! They would have to also love my library kids and understand why I do the things that I do for them .

Must be willing and able to assist me in my endeavors! 
I'm am for real about Simply Unique and Diva's Connection. Either get off the bus have a seat and enjoy the ride. I need him in a "I Support Diva's Connection" t-shirt.

Must be good with budgeting. 
Because I'm not!

Must have a sense of humor. 
I be laughing at shit that shouldn't even be funny....but I make it funny. Any guy that is going to be the love of my life must be able to make me laugh. I will fall completely for a guy who can make me laugh...especially when I really don't feel like it.

Must have FEASIBLE goals.
I don't want you to just have goals. I need you to have obtainable goals. Don't be 45 talking about you want to be the next 2 Chains. Don't be talking about investing and you don't have any money. My husband will be the leader of the household and I can't follow a dummy. What we look like be lost at the same time?

Must accept me as I am. 
I do want to lose weight. I want to be healthy but I'll be the same person then as I am now. Take it or leave it!

10 Things That Make Me Happy

In an effort to write more and post more on my blog (once again) I am going to start sharing writing prompts on my Facebook page. I'm sharing them with my friends because I truly believe in the calming power of writing and if I can encourage just one person to write then I've done my job. So here you have it' 10 Things That Make Me Happy: In No Particular Order 

Motherhood. Without out a single ounce of exaggeration, I live for my kids. I am consistently plagued with feelings of loathing and self doubt but I know that I brought these little people into the world and that I'm responsible for them. Because I feel that I have the responsibility to put on a brave face for so many other people no one will every fully understand the demons I fight on a regular basis. My children are my protectors. If it weren't for them I would have lost my battle to at least one a long time ago. 

Creating. Ya'll know I love to craft. My love for craft gives me a sense of accomplishmen…

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …

This week I started with meal replacement shakes. My will power was not strong! I was able to do the shakes 3 full days, meaning I had one for breakfast and one for lunch with a sensible dinner. I purchased both Slimfast and Atkins and have been having the Slimfast shakes for breakfast and the Atkins shakes for lunch. I would say that those are to credit for the 2 lb weight loss because I didn't all - just tried to move around more. This upcoming week I am going to do the meal replacements Monday -Thursday and see how many pounds I lose.

Even though the scale didn't move much I do have so…
