I'm Free But I'm Focused

So 20 years later, I still don't have it all figured out just yet. But I do know that everything is going to be fine and that is something I wasn't sure of in 1995. I miss the music, I miss the silly TV shows. Most of all I miss those dear, dear friends that I saw every single day. I didn't realize what an amazing GIFT that was.

Goodbye March, we'll see you again soon! I miss you 1995 and think of you often. Thanks for everything!

I Know A Girl Who Thinks Of Ghosts

March really marched on by this year. One thing I've noticed about motherhood is that time certainly seems to go much faster when all you want it to do is slow down just a little. I guess it is the reverse 'watched pot never boils' syndrome.

This song makes me feel SO OLD but it was everywhere in 1995 and I adored it!

Good Excuse For An Endless Spree

My kiddo has started saying the silliest craziest things. The new one that makes me almost fall down with laughter is "A big thumbs up!" which is of course followed up with a tightly closed fist with the thumb wrapped tightly INSIDE the fist. So a big thumbs up gets no thumb.

I guess you would have to see it to fully appreciate it, kind of like the Mona Lisa...

You Were One

There is a spring in my step this morning, I guess it is because Spring is really here...meaning the temperature will drop this weekend and the jackets will come back out hopefully for the very last time this year!

I'm Gonna Break Down At Fifty

Getting old is rough on my poor silly body. Trying to get back into fighting shape is now an actual FIGHT. But I get up, get going and tell myself every day I'm a little further down the path to health.

Somehow The Vital Connection Is Made

Trying to fake the funk. The sun is shining, the daffodils are blooming, the baby is full of giggles...it shouldn't be too hard to shake off this bad case of the Mondays!

If You Want It You Got It Forever

I loved loved loved D'Angelo's first album so much. Seriously, so much. And Brown Sugar was the jam in 1995. Since today is the first day of Spring, I'm thinking of my my little red VW Cabriolet. And cranking up that entire album but especially this song.

Little Fish Big Fish

20 years can really change a person. I hope it hasn't changed PJ Harvey too much. The video for Good Fortune is exactly how I wanted to dress, how I wanted to wear my hair, how I wore my lipstick and eye make up...I wanted to BE Polly Jean. She's freaking awesome, a little part of me would still like to be PJ in 1995. But Nikki Sughrue has a pretty good life too (and 1995 was pretty great for her).

The Reel 1,2,3

So it is St. Patrick's Day and as a good Sughrue should, I'm sporting the green (although I was tempted to put on some orange to see if my mother-in-law would mention my choice).

1995 was the year Riverdance really took off and thus it was the year I started doing a little skippy jig at any sporting event when my team needed a big huge push of good luck. It isn't something I do every game. The magic is reserved for playoffs, for championships, for Alabama...

Get out your hard shoes!

On another note, I still love you Billy Corgan. I couldn't quit you if I tried.

I Try To Ram Her Into The Ground

I heard a DJ this afternoon talking about an interview with Julia Roberts. She was asked what rock song described her and she used one of my favorite lyrics from Bruce Springsteen's "Thunder Road." Because I don't know about you, but when I think of Julia Roberts, the first thing I think is "You ain't a beauty but hey you're alright." Gurl...please...<insert teeth suck & eye roll here>

If I ever see her walking down the street, I'm going to punch her straight in her lady junk then I'm going to put gum in her hair. I don't think she has any misconceptions about how she looks.

You're Drinking What They're Selling

First day of staycation is so great! I got up, made my bed, fixed a nice healthy breakfast and ran two miles in a light drizzle. Just kidding, I lazed around for a few hours before going to Big Lots and a kids consignment sale. But I did put on mascara AND lip gloss for only the 2nd time in 2015, so that has to be worth something, right?

But Gravity Always Wins

Thinking of all my sweet DC friends who are in pain this week over the unexpected loss of a dear girl. Call a member of your tribe today, your best friend from junior high, your college roomie, the cubicle mate at your first real job....whoever. Call someone you love, someone you miss and tell them you appreciate their friendship.

So How We Gonna Kick It?

Ugh, is February finally over? That was one rough month, I'm so ready for March. I have a new really super guilty pleasure, the show "Hindsight" on VH1. Love it, a woman who seems about my age is taken back to relive 1995. I gotta tell you, of all the years not spent with my husband, 1995 was my favorite! Great friends, fun job, graduated from college...all around, 1995 was awesome!

The music was so amazing and such a part of my life, the entire month of March is dedicated to 1995! Kick back, relax, put on a pair of Chuck Taylors (or Birks if you've got 'em) and enjoy!
