For The Last Time!

I feel like a broken record.

Every two months (almost like clockwork)....there is major drama in my life and I think seriously about stepping away from my blog.

I'm here to tell you (for the last time) that I'm not going anywhere.  This is the last time that you will hear me threatening to quit because of someone trying to silence me.

If I will be because it's finally time for me to move on or my kids are too old to blog about.  I don't see this happening for a while.

I'm feeling pretty hopeful that this drama is completely over and won't be causing me any more pain and stress.

I mean really....we've beat this dead horse and my husband has defended me so many times that I can't imagine anyone inventing more lies and half truths about me.  Poor Keith has had to say the same things so many times that I advised him to just make up a form letter to be sent out when he gets emails from a certain email address.  It's gotten that ridiculous.

I've asked my friend, please take this burden from me.  I live my  life in truth and love.  Or love and light, if you're a Real Housewife of New Jersey fan and there is no room in it for toxic people.  I have a very important job to a mom, a wife and I'm am enough just the way I am (and I look damn good in a hat).

And if people don't like it....they can suck it.
THANK YOU to my dear friends that advised me over the last few days and told me all of the things I needed to hear.  I love you guys! 


  1. Yay Connie! I love that you do what makes YOU happy and tell everyone who has an issue with it to stuff it.

    I'm also jealous that you do indeed look damn good in a hat, I look like a serious tard when I wear them. You even rocked Mallory's hat during the wedding! And I love that shirt. Fashionista = Connie.

  2. Well said Connie :) I love that hat. It takes a lot of confidence to wear one, I think - wish I had it! lol!

  3. I wanna hear the juicy gossip as to what happened? I'm sorry your having a hard time with dumb people! There are so many out there!
    P.S you are sexy in a hat,
    and p.p.S...LOOOVE Jersey housewives...Love in light! LOL

  4. Um yeah, you *DO* look good in a hat!! And I'm so happy that you're here to stay. You have to do what's right for you, your husband, and children. Extended family just doesn't get a say.

  5. And we love you and want the crazies out of your life!

    You are right! You look DAMNED good in a hat but you're missing a little cleavage. Come on, Connie!! Choose a different top next time and show us the goods. ;)


  6. Connie YOUR AWESOME! I love you! Love that hat too... just bought one similar, love it!! ; )

  7. Amen! Don't let negative people ruin your positive life.

  8. I love this post. Beautifully said, Connie.
    I saw this on a church billboard the other day: Hatred causes strife where love covers all sins. I'm totally butchering that verse, but it's out of Proverbs. And I thought of you. You don't need the strife. Nobody does. And Jesus would be the first to tell you that it doesn't matter if it's your family you were born to on this earth. You are part of a different family. A family of God. Chosen and adopted to be a saint. And your job is to teach that to your children. We are not of this world. And you are my bestie and a princess so they can suck it. :)

  9. Thanks!!

    I added my theme song for the day!


  10. I'm glad you are staying. Anyone who can rock a hat like that has no business going into hiding.

  11. I am so happy for you - looks like your "friend" has already taken that burden away.....

    Hope this afternoon goes well!


  12. You do look damn good in a hat.

    Glad you are staying. :)

  13. I am so sorry honey that you are having to deal with so much pain and that they won't leave you alone. I am glad you are staying strong and not letting them drive you away from a community who loves you. It is a new day and you do look damn good in that hat!

  14. You DO look good in a hat!

    Hell is other people. They can suck it.


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
