Four Things Currently Rockin' My World!

This is somewhat random and these four things really have nothing to do with each other, but nevertheless, they are currently four of my favorite things right now:

1.  the present: clear make up by philosophy.  When I actually remember to use this primer before putting on my make up, I am in love with it! I have been using it for years...but for some reason I usually forget to put it on until it is too late...I need to work on that.

2.  The snuggle time with my son when he wakes from his naps.  He is always sweet and loves giving hugs, but the 10 or so minutes when he first wakes up after his naps are our special cuddle time and moments I will cherish forever.

3.  Briannas Classic Buttermilk Ranch Dressing.  This is the best ranch dressing I have ever my whole life.  :)  I could bathe in this dressing.

4.  This is the awesome son of a really amazing woman...the kind of mother I strive to be.  I questioned whether I should post this at all...first because it is someone else's child, second because I didn't want putting it alongside salad dressing to devalue her message in any way and because you have likely already seen this all over Facebook and/or Twitter....BUT the message is so important that I am throwing all of those reasons out the window and decided to blur his face.  This post brought tears to my eyes and hopefully opened a few others' eyes, as well.  Please take a moment to read, "My son is gay" if you haven't already.

Have a great weekend!!

[Cupcake Friday may or may not return next Friday...I think I need a break from the sweets.  :)]

Isn't that story amazing? I spent yesterday obsessed with it. Amazing boy. Amazing mom.

Suzie @ cupcake monkey said...

Yes! I was also completely obsessed...still am. :) At some point, I want to read all of the comments that post received. I sure hope they were all positive.

Rachel @ Delight said...

Wow. I had not seen that. I am speechless. WHat a fantastic mother. If only everyone could have those same feelings, this world would be a better place.

I love any products by philosophy, so I may need to give that one a shot. I have been using a smashbox primer, but it leaves me greasy. I need a change.

Love the picture of you and your son. :o)

And I love Briannas dressings, but haven't ever seen that ranch! I need it! :o)

Have a great weekend, Suzie!

I am glad that you threw those reasons out the window and shared this story. I wrote about it in my post today as well. I had reasons of "why I shouldn't" share- one being that I also didn't want to devalue her story with my own. But I felt that I needed to share it as well- so I also threw my reasons out the window.

I have been on a Facebook and Twitter break this week, so I have not seen that post. AMAZING mother! Thank you so much for sharing because I may have missed it otherwise.
