Little boys in capes…

Little boys in capes…

…and little girls in tutus, there’s just something really special about these two things. There’s just something about boys being super heroes and girls being princesses that is so precious.

Of or In, very important prepositions

It’s been a while since I thought too much about diagramming a sentence. It’s one of those skills that they teach you in school which has absolutely no effect on your subsequent life.

Are you THAT person for anyone? Before you answer, let me explain what’s entailed in being THAT person. Last Saturday night, or rather in the wee hours of Sunday morning, I woke up.

PDA: I want to be happy for you, not nauseated

Alright, you know who you are. Please stop! In a recent episode of  “The Office” the subject of PDA (public displays of affection) was broached and I think now is a prefect time to talk about it here on MAC’s Musings.

Why you do what you do…

3 Times a Bridesmaid…Crap.

Every now and again I hear the saying, “Three times a bridesmaid, never a bride” and slightly cringe. You see, I’ve been a bridesmaid 8 times in my 26 years and number 9 has been committed to, though no date has been set. That’s roughly $1,800 worth of dresses I will never wear again not …read more →

Me vs. Me

Has the thought ever crossed your mind that people only like you because they don’t really know you? Don’t worry, I’m not trying to pick on anyone in particular.

How did THAT happen?

Have you ever seen a married couple interact and think, “How did THAT happen?” Not necessarily the couples that bicker and fight or even the couples who don’t really seem to be in love (though that deserves some consideration as well). It’s more the couples where one spouse is so dominant that they seem to …read more →
