Today I’m 37

Hi,

I cannot believe I’m 37 today. I don’t feel 37. Where does the time go? I thought I would be 21 forever.

What have I learned in these 37 years? Not a darn thing! Just kidding. I decided to share 37 random things about myself today.

2. My favorite place to be is the beach

3. I met my husband at a club in Hollywood when I was 18 ( funny story)

4. I have a serious sweet tooth

5. I got married at 20 and became a mom at almost 21 (yes, I started young)

6. I have two kids

7. Became a homeowner at 23

8. I have a dog named Rusty

9. I don’t like crowed places

10. Sunshine makes me happy

11. I was an artist in High School (maybe I still am deep down inside)

37. I find blogging therapeutic

Today, my kids and I went to Target where I tried on a lot of swimsuits but didn’t like any. So well I waited for my daughter in the dressing room, I sucked in my stomach and took some pictures 🙂

I was concentrating hard on keeping it in

In the afternoon, we went to my friend Nancy’s house and hung out by the pool.

My son had fun jumping in

She made me this brownie ice cream cake, put a candle in it and sang me happy birthday. She’s so sweet. I made my son eat at least 1/2. He didn’t mind.

It seems like everyone is putting dessert in front of me today so my rules are down the drain as we speak. Looks like I’ll be starting over tomorrow. I’m not stressed over it because what I’ve learned is when you when you mess up and fall down, you get back up and keep walking.

Thanks for reading.

Marlene
