Since I’ve been away, I’ve had a few things on my mind.
First off, Democratic Pundit Hilary Rosen really ticked me off, and I’m a democrat!
If you haven’t heard, she said Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. Mrs. Romney stayed home and raised her five sons. Yes, I know the Romney’s are millionaires, and yes, she probably had help. The comment still gets my blood boiling.
Democrats trying to “fix” Rosen’s comment have also managed to infuriate me. I couldn’t care less about the fortune of those running for president. I’m tired of the argument that because the Romney’s are wealthy, they can’t relate to the common man. Why? Because EVERY presidential candidate is wealthy, whether they were born that way or worked for it. I’m not saying that’s the way it should be, but that’s the way it is.
I could go on and on about this topic, but instead I’ll leave you with this tongue-in-cheek drawing from my friend Diane. We are both stay-at-home-moms and she posted this on my facebook wall.She titled it, “Ready to start my Monday”….haha. I love it! If only that’s what it was really like to be a stay-at-home-mom.
Next topic…I have a new obsession. SPARTINA 449
Spartina 449 was started by a woman who lives on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. Daufuskie is an Island right by Hilton Head. Her hand bags, clothes, and beautiful accessories are now in more than 1,000 stores.
Here’s a look at a few of my favorite items.
All of her items are very beachy and airy. I have a purse, wallet and apron. A portion of the proceeds also go to the Daufuskie Island Historical Society. You can check out more of her beach bags, purses, clothing and accessories by clicking here. Spartina 449 was also recently featured in Southern Living.
Lastly, I am still researching our family tree (on my family’s side) and I discovered a shocker! We are primarily Irish and English, and I thought that is all I would continue to find as I kept researching. My mother’s maiden name is Neely, which is a very Irish name and we were always told it was Irish and a form of McNeely. Well, notsomuch!
Neely is actually from Neleigh and it is German! GULP!
We were shocked. I had to go back to my mother’s sixth-great-grandparents to crack the code. I guess we will be celebrating Oktoberfest this year!
