I've always been one of those people that seems to have a bit of a sixth sense. I'm no psychic but I will just get a gut feeling about something or someone and I'd say about 90% of the time I'm right. Well I've had this feeling for awhile regarding a certain life situation. I've been churning over it and felt like it was coming. And today I got my confirmation. Well, sort of. I got the confirmation that it's coming. And strangely, I'm okay it. Maybe okay is pushing it but I'm dealing with it. Being the Type A that I am I can't just NOT freak out over it. But I'm 80% sure I've already got the situation dealt with so it's all going to be okay.
And now I would like that chocolate I asked for with a very large bottle of wine.

That's right. And I'm not even kidding. I chopped up 20 jalapenos (and no I DIDN'T wear gloves! I didn't KNOW!) and my hands have been ON FREAKING FIRE for 7 hours! Let's see I've tried vinegar (made them burn worse), honey (short-lived relief), washing them repeatedly (water makes it worse) and even hand sanitizer (Thank you they are now triple the heat.) Just when you think they are feeling better they start to get worse. I googled it and apparently Jalapeno Hands are quite the problem out there. Oh and every was freaking out about their contacts. I guess even hours after they have chopped up their Jalapenos they took out their contacts and almost ripped out their eye due to the pain. So I got my happy butt out of the house at midnight tonight to go get some latex gloves so I can at least sleep with my contacts out of my eyes. Seriously this is awful. I beg of you, next time you deal with peppers, USE THE DAGUM GLOVES.
*UPDATE: My #%$&@ hands WOKE ME UP in the middle of the night from the pain. Now it is morning and only 2 and half fingers are hurting. I'll take it.

Old Barn Co. is giving way this quilt. Just giving it away. If I was the proud owner of this quilt I would be extremely selfish and never let it out of my sight. How GORGEOUS is this thing? So head on over and check out the giveaway. And enter if you must but don't be hating me when I post pictures of myself all wrapped up in it!

When I was little, I used to believe in the concept of one best friend, and then I started to become a woman. And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up, God would show you the best in many friends.
One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in yourchildren and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'Another , 'Let's fight together,'
Another, 'Let's walk away together.'
Another your shoe fetish,
Another will be with you in your season of confusion,
Another will be your clarifier,
Another, the wind beneath your wings.
But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hairpulled back,
Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself.
Those are your best friends.
It may all be wrapped up in one woman,
But for many, it's wrapped up in several.
One from 7th grade,
Several from the college years,
A couple from old jobs,
On some days your mother,
On some days your neighbor,
On others your sisters,
And on some days, your daughters.
So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years,
Pass this on to the women in your life.
Who make a difference.
