Lessons learned

My little monster and I, originally uploaded by candy_rose.

* Stay away from cheap Nail salons (you know which ones I'm talking about) no matter how new and clean they appear. I received a beautiful bracelet for Christmas that I've been meaning to post, but can't because of a gorgeous infection!

* Listen to your true friends.

* Get second opinions with EVERYTHING! Not just your health, but with any type of big decision you have to make. If somebody/business doesn't tell you what you want to hear, try elsewhere.

* Invest! There was a product I was looking to purchase months ago, but didn't try. I get bummed out when I check ebay and see how much people are now bidding on it.

* No matter how big this puppy gets he ALWAYS wants to be held. Tomorrow he'll be 5 months, and I have a feeling the next five months will be filled with him napping in my lap or wanting to be held!

* When you're purchasing anything that requires a contract always ask if you have 30 days to cancel. You never know what could go wrong with the equipment, or if you're not going to like the service.

* Go with your gut, follow your instincts and never sell yourself short. People always say "never give up" but sometimes letting go is the best thing you can do for yourself.

* I'm going to stop telling people my age. I'm in my late 20's and people treat me as though I'm 87. Seriously I have my whole life ahead of me, leave me the you know what alone!

Have a good day 🙂

    You two are both so beautiful!! And yes, your puppy is getting so large, what a cutie. So sorry about the infection – I’ve heard some horror stories from friends that have had similar issues. Super icky – here’s to hoping that clears up ASAP!

    oh my goodness, his head is almost bigger than yours and he’s still a puppy. you have learned some very good things for a person in your late 20s, which is probably why people think you’re older. wisdom usually comes with age. we’ll keep your secret and you look marvelous!

    Oh my goodness – he’s gotten so big! Trusting your gut is such good advice and I don’t think many people do it.

    I should have explained the age dilemma more, people think I’m 12 when they first meet me but give me hell because I’m not married nor do I have any desire to be in the near future. They act like time is running out because I’m not, and I’ll never find a man. So annoying! I like younger men so I’m not concerned!!!
