Kid's Say The Darndest Things...

I've got this habit of not eating when I sit down at the table to feed the kids... So this was a conversation that took place with me and my daughter at the table-- and I cannot stop laughing!
Daughter: "Mama, what are you gonna have for breakfast?"
Me: "I don't really know, Babe... I'll figure something out. Is your breakfast good?"
Daughter: "Yes ma'am! Thank you for cooking! They'll probably give the adults breakfast at
church when they pass around that tray... What's on that tray, anyhow?"
Me: "No, Baby... That's not breakfast... That usually only happens on the first Sunday and we are drinking the blood of Jesus!"
...she paused and looked at me really strange. So I asked "What is it?" Her eyes filled up with tears and she asked "So vampires are real? And you're one of them?"
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! Man, I love being her mama!!!!!!!

R.I.P. Larry Hagman

R.I.P. Larry Hagman! I don't know about you but when I think of Dallas one of the first things I think about is the now infamous line, "Who shot J.R.?" There are not too many other characters on television that was as well known as J.R. Ewing and that is how good you were at your job. I'm not sure anyone else could have pulled that role off that well. May you rest in peace.

Let's say it's 6.15pm and you're going home (alone of course) ...after an unusually hard day on the job. You're really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles (8kms) from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!


Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

Share this information with as many people as you can. You may just save a person's life!!!

Have A Healthy Day!

"If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable." - Robert Pattinson

Clothing Selection Hell!

It has been a while since I have made a blog post but this one is way past due! Am I the only woman out there without any real, true fashion sense? I grew up being a tomboy so being in to the latest trends were not high on my priority list. I wore tennis shoes and jeans nearly everyday except to church. Which until I was out of high school remained pretty much the only place I would dare wear a dress or skirt for that matter. As an adult I have struggled to say the least on clothing selections and overall style period. Over the past few days, I have been asked random and somewhat easy questions, like 'what do you normally wear out' or 'how do you select your clothes' and I honestly have drawn a blank....ugh! Why did these questions throw me off? Was it a trick question?

I am determined not go one more day without being able to properly dress! Don't get me wrong I have nice clothes but I want a style. I want my own personal "brand" look. No longer will I go in to a store and buy what's on the mannequin because I can't put my own outfit together. I am going to become that lady that can go in to a Goodwill store and come out with mix n match pieces that look like they were meant to be together!

Now that I have gotten that off my chest, you will begin seeing outfit picks of the day beginning today and everyday. This new daily post is being brought to you because we all know how it is trying to figure out what to wear from time to time. Hell and for some of us that can be as often as day to day. How much time do we spend thinking about what to pack for vacation, upcoming holiday events, professional events, etc.... The ladies here at Real. Life. Woman. Talk. feel your pain (some of us are going throught it too... i.e. ME!) Therefore, we hope our outfit of the day picks will help you out or at least give you some ideas.

An "Apparent Life Threatening Event"or ALTE is a scary diagnosis. It is often associated with unknown respiratory, cardiac, or seizure disorders in children. Caregivers will find patients lethargic, unresponsive, not breathing, or with a change in color. See your doctor immediately or go to the nearest emergency room if you find yourself in this situation!!!!  Have A Healthy Day!!!!
