Panic At The Disco

So for part of my daughter, Ashton's 16th birthday I bought tickets for her to go see one of her fav bands playing at the USANA Ampitheatre

And for me this was a first going to a concert that I really didn't know most of the songs!

drum war!

 But that didn't stop me from having fun and liking pretty much every song!

Emperor's New Clothes

This Is Gospel


And of course I had to get Ashton a T-shirt

Mother, Daughters and Granddaughter At The Zoo

Today we had an all girl outing to  Hogle Zoo

First port of call

The Train ride. 

  Where we saw the Zebras, as well as the giraffes

My what a Long tongue you have!

Then we peeked at the new lions cubs! But alas they were sleeping!
Must of been the heat lol

Proud Papa Lion

Time to cool down with the misting fan!



This Monkey was not amused by the spectators!

See, I'm this big!

Only one elephant out today!

Wouldn't like to meet this Rhino in an alleyway lol

Say cheese!

Lunch time

Love Carys's smile here...she said, I'm smiling like the otter :)

Yeah, yeah we know all these people staring can be rather boring!

Always feel sorry for a polar bear living in a state that's a desert!

Hey you're in my way!

This bear was under tree while the other bear walked over him lol

Sleepy time!

Yum..these leaves are most delicous

To end the excursion we hit the Carrousel ride

Hey Ashton....Cool sunglasses

Selfie Time

Yeah, Yeah Ashton, 
We Love You Too

Is Being a “Good” Girl Hurting Your Career? Why “Bad” Girls Become Best-Sellers

Is Being a “Good” Girl Hurting Your Career? Why “Bad” Girls Become Best-Sellers

 A blog post I read by

I subscribe to her wonderful blog : by Kristen Lamb,
 in which she gives advice for writers/bloggers.

The title above is a post I just read and loved it. 

It is an empowering post and had me nodding my head plenty of times. 

It got  me thinking about how I feel about my book
I am in the state of waiting for feedback from my beta readers about my book!

A nail biting, consuming of too much chocolate scene!

Does this stop me from feeling that I can't or that i'm not good enough -- Yes!

Does this stop me from trying? 

Does this make me think because i'm a mother, wife and everything that comes with that, that I can't write a book?

Answer is -- A big fat - NO!

Just like Kristen says in her blog post 

We can do whatever we set our minds to -- if we desire it.

And just like that coveted new purse or dress you want to get and save for
or if your like me, a chocolate bar and one day meeting Tom Hiddleston 
(which I will be in meeting Ian again in Sept - swoon)

We can do it. 
We can save for that purse etc.
We can meet out fav celebs.


We can start that blog.

We can write that book!
