What’s more fun than a surprise party? Two years ago I put one together for my mom whose birthday is June 25th. It wasn’t easy to keep it all under wraps and in the end she suspected there would be some kind of gathering for her. Still it was fun! Party planning period can be stressful but if you’re trying to surprise someone this rings even more true! Here are some things that helped me pull off her party successfully.
It’s not to honor women period.
Sorry not sorry.
Let me go ahead and lay out my parental situation. My mom is a single mother to 3 boys. I’m the only child my parents had together before they split. My father has always been in my life consistently in money and time. Even though my mom raised my brothers without consistent help from their dad I still don’t wish her a happy Father’s Day.
Anyone else dream a lot throughout the night?
When I dream, everything is in full color and very vivid. When I wake up my heart is usually racing – because of course I can’t have some chill dream like suntanning on the beach with Derek Morgan. Sometimes when I wake up from a dream if I fall back asleep too soon the dream will continue. And depending on the dream that can be a frightening thing!
I’ve had people tell me that my dreams mean nothing; that they came from a movie I watched or something I ate.
We all need biography at some point. If you’re in business, if you do performing arts….even when you die people will want to read your story. You should know yourself better than anyone else but it can be hard to take everything and condense it into a snapshot.
I’ve been candid about how long it took me to furnish my apartment after moving to a new state with pretty much nothing. I’ve been blessed financially but I’m always still searching for a deal before before spending money. And of course when decorating my place I wanted some original art pieces (uh hello, my blog name is The QUIRK Life).
We all know that you can learn a lot about a person by looking through their internet browser history (note to self: update will with specific instructions about this).
Anyway, another method to see into a person is to go through their camera roll. Phones are generally password protected and therefore can carry a lot of insight of a person’s mental. I gave you a glimpse into my thoughts before, but here are my 10 most recent camera photos.
Cool fact – I submitted this to Buzz Feed because I was interested in writing for them. I wasn’t selected, but I still had fun coming up with these so I’m sharing with you!
You might already know that I decided to host a giveaway to celebrate my blog’s first birthday. Woo hoo! Leslie Jackson, CEO of And Inspirations supplied the prizes for the winner. Isn’t she the sweetest?!
