I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

  Me - Earrings are jewelry which is one reason why I like them. Most girls go crazy over jewelry. I do too, but I don't brag about it. Jewelry makes you look pretty especially earrings. You just poke them into your ears, and  there you have it. The only bad thing about them, IMO, is that the backings are always getting lost because of how small they are. That is an inconvenience. My Mom and I used to go crazy trying to find an earring back from one of our other earrings. Then, I came up with the idea to keep all the earring backs in a little ceramic tub. Jewelry is one of my favorite things. But, if I had to choose, a favorite jewelry, I'd probably say earrings. I got my ears pierced when I was five as a present for graduating from pre-k. It was a gift from my parents. I was super excited when I found out I was getting my ears pierced. A lot of girls I know show off about having their ears pierced. Since, I was young when I got mine pierced, I never really told anyone about it until I was older. Now that I am older, a lot of girls have pierced ears so it is not very exciting that I have pierced ears. Even though, I said I love jewelry, I can live without it which I have been doing for a while now. I wish I could be wearing it all the time, but I can't because aside from earrings which my Mom and I share, I only have two broken bracelets and a necklace because the rest my sister stole. Like I said, I can live without it, but I think I'll steal it back from my sister and start wearing it all the time again. My friends wear three necklaces, a bracelet on each hand and rings on each and every finger at the same time. Even though I love jewelry I would never go that crazy. The most jewelry I have ever worn at the same time is three bracelets on one hand, a necklace, and a ring on my left hand ring finger plus a pair of earrings. People always say to me "Melia, I bet you don't have as much jewelry as I do."  I think to myself 'they're crazy for jewelry'. I am too but I try not to toot my own horn. When people do that to me, I don't get mad, but I tell them if they think they have so much jewelry they should let me see it so I can see if they are serious or they are just trying to make me jealous. Sometimes, it is hard to tell the difference between the truth or  a lie. The only time I would brag about my jewelry to my friends or family is if I got a new piece of jewelry. Nobody tells me when they get new pieces of jewelry, but they go on and on and on about what they already have. When my friends are talking to me about jewelry, sometimes I feel like they just talk without even realizing what they are saying. For example, this is one time, I was talking to my friend and she was telling me how she has a really pretty blue flowered bracelet with a little jewel on it. Then, out of nowhere, she said "Do you like pizza? Because I do." Anyway, I'll get back to you about how it goes stealing back my jewelry from my sister, Aurella whom I've mentioned before in the blog about best friends.

Mom- Like any woman, I like jewelry. However, unlike any woman, for the most part, I can live with it or without it. I have a few necklaces, bracelets, pins, and rings which I hardly ever wear. Of course, I have a wedding ring and  an engagement ring which I wear all the time.  The only other kind of jewelry that I absolutely love and wear almost every day is earrings. In fact, the only time, I do not wear earrings is when I am going swimming or if I forget to put them on in the morning. I just love earrings, all kinds of earrings big earrings, small earrings, hoops, studs, knots, multicolored earrings, one colored earrings, gold earrings, silver earrings, just about any kind of earring you can name I like. I literally have 100's of them of just about every size shape and color you can name. The funny thing is that when I was young, I was never one of those girls who was in a rush to get my ears pierced. One day, we were just out at the mall and my Mom told me I was getting my ears pierced, and I thought well okay,. Even then I wasn't overly excited. I was about 13 then, and I only wore earrings for about six months or so then stopped. When I graduated from high school  a friend told me I should put some earrings on, she actually managed to get earrings in my ears even after all that time which surprisingly didn't hurt. Ever since than, I've been crazy about earrings and wear them all the time. The only thing I don't like about earrings is that they are always getting lost and so are the backs. If the backs get lost that is not such a big deal, I just take a back from another pair.  .However,  I don't like losing earrings because when you lose an earring you are still stuck with the other half of the pair. When it becomes obvious that the missing earring is not going to turn up, I know that is the point when I should probably throw the remaining one out. However, I am too attached to my earrings so I cannot bear the thought of never wearing a pair again so lately I have started occasionally wearing mismatched earrings each of which I have lost the pair to. My girls get a kick out of that. Every day, they like to look and see if I am wearing matching earrings or not.

And that's our view. Tune again for another topic.


  1. My girls love jewelry too! Mismatched earring is cute.

  2. i wear the same earrings as i keep it simple. i used to have multiple pierces but now it's just one in each ear. i'm waiting till my daughter is old enough to appreciate the rite of passage that is ear piercing before she can get it done. i got mine done when i was 8. i also wear rings, a watch and a necklace. bracelets annoy me.
