Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Goodbye Summer

Goodbye Summer (the season, not the person)

Dear Summer,

You are my favorite season of the year, and I’m sad to see you go. I keep trying to convince you to stay, but apparently I “repulse you in swimwear.” Whatever. I still love you because you give me an excuse to wear flowy dresses that hide my stomach fat.

Not only do they hide bulges, the dresses allow me to get away with not wearing Spanx, which makes me more pleasant to others. I’m far happier when I’m not scratching my crotch every five seconds and whining that my ribs are breaking from the force of nylon. Thanks for that. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - I Have Never Felt Beautiful
    Angela Keck

    I Have Never Felt Beautiful

    I was tagged a few days ago to participate in the “I feel beautiful” challenge that is going around on Facebook.  If you haven’t seen this particular Facebook meme it works like this, a friend uploads 5 pictures of herself that make her feel beautiful, and she tags 5 friends to do the same thing.

    The only problem is, I don’t feel beautiful.

    I have never felt beautiful.

    I don’t have a single photograph of myself from my entire lifetime where I look at it and think that I looked beautiful in the picture, or that I felt beautiful on that day and time.

    To put it simply, I have never felt beautiful.  Ever. READ MORE

    The Barbie Incident

    Each time I open one of my kid’s lunch bags, I feel like a TV executive looking over the latest Nielsen ratings. The goldfish are gone—yea, we have a hit. The popcorn looked like a sure-fire winner yet it was untouched. Pull it.

    I am ruthless. I can’t waste time and money on a snack that doesn’t score.

    As a mom, I have to make quick decisions every day. Many are no more important than what snack to buy at the market.Too often the stakes are higher. Some choices, whether they are made quickly or with much prayer and thought, have deeper consequences. READ MORE
