Life's Tough... Get A Helmet

Cheetah Bandeau- Victoria's Secret; Grey Racerback- Victoria's Secret; Denim Shorts- JC Penney {4 years old!}
Who's a very happy camper and has two thumbs?
This kid. 
Who just got a huge package from Victoria's Secret? 
This kid.
Who doesn't have to work for the next two days?
... If you didn't answer "this kid" something's wrong with you lady, or Hunter. Seeing as Hunter is probably the only male specimen who reads my blog. 

After eight long days of working, I finally have two days off! I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with myself... okay. I do know what I'm going to do with myself. Send out thank you cards. Go to the beach. See Hunter. Go to the beach. Oh, and go to the beach. 

I've been thinking a lot about negativity and how it affects me. Affects everyone. And, then, when Michelle wrote about "Having it All" and how we as bloggers almost try to make it appear as if we have it all I wondered if I have that impression on people. That because I generally only write about good things if people think nothing crappy ever happens to me. I guess my reasoning for being mostly positive on Ivory Giraffes is because it helps me be more positive in real life. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm not always this happy in real life. 
I have lots of bad days. 
I have coworkers who I do not get along with, and sometimes I'm not very nice to Hunter. 
There are lots of days where I fight with my Mama, and when I take the things I have for granted. I pee my pants. I get overwhelmed. I've had so many falling-outs with friends I held dear, and some of the falling-out was my fault. 
And writing things like this is why I love blogging. I love that we're all real people, and most of us don't try and make it out like everything is all great all the time but a lot of us do try and remain positive. We're not celebrities, we're just people with passion. 


  1. I always struggle with how much of my problems to put on my blog. Like how much should I share because I want my readers to know what's going on (like if I'm not posting or am not very happy) and what is me just complaining or sharing something that I have no business sharing. I like your attitude though about blogging to help with positivity.


  2. You have a gorgeous tan!!! Crazy! Haha and the neon bandeau is awesome.

    And I was thinking the same thing this morning. Great post.


From the bottom of my heart I thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Please, don't hesitate to leave comments or suggestion!
