that was the title of a book that caught my eye as i walked by it at target the other day. i read it as it was just an easy read of 100 reasons why a daughter needs her father. it was the cutest book i have ever seen. i debated buying it, which i may go back and do just so i have it as a reference, but i loved every reason. i think every daughter does need her father. i am coming to terms with the fact that what i have been through has tested my strength and what it means to be happy and whole, strong and confident. i am learning the true meaning of what it is to be a grown-up, and will the loss of my father i feel that i am a work in progress...and i think i am trudging this path the best i can. i think dad is proud. i think i make him laugh everyday...i think i am growing into a woman that he would be honored to father. i know we think of each other every day. he sparkles in my life every day...i live to honor him every day. i want him back. but most importantly, until i see him again, i want him to know he is with me as i learn to find my own way in the crazy crazy world. thanks dad! i love you.

...to only paint the two nails that are on show in your peep-toes
...to think about your eBay bid during sex
...if you have never quite mastered that public-toilet hovering move
...to dump a perfectly nice guy. so what if he is kind, responsible and his ancestors all had full heads of hair? that does not make him right for you.
...to delete any email that pops into your inbox with a subject line beginning FWD: FWD: FWD:
...to own more eyeshadow than you can possibly wear in one lifetime
...to skip the whole "i hope we can still be friends" charade. you have enough friends
these types of fun things will be a usual post for my blog. i love seeing what i agree with, what i do not, etc.

you wake up in the morning, regardless of your alarm going off. don't you hate that? you get so used to your routine that on the weekends your body is telling you at 8 in the morning that you have already “slept in.” 8 in the morning! geez, that used to be the crack of dawn in college!
mornings are not the same without that initial cup of coffee. somehow redbulls, monsters, mountain dew are just not great choices anymore unless you want to sit in front of your computer shaking involuntarily. that one cup of coffee at the office officially starts your day and you are “ready” to work!
making lunch dates is now an option. since you do get that one hour break in your day now, you might as well put it to use, right? it is the perfect amount of time to do have a “coffee shop” date. you know. go for coffee, and if things are normal enough, venture off to dinner. if only this would have worked in college I would have saved A LOT of time!
talking about favorite TV shows is a great topic of conversation. let's face it though. if you have a good sense of humor, talking about TV shows has always been an option. Now it's different. talking about a TV show at work is a means to connect with coworkers. that is how clicks are formed.
after a few drinks, all you desire is your TV and your couch. going out is no longer automatic, it is a process. to decide where to go, when to meet, who to meet, and how to get there. if either one of these steps is a problem, you figure it's just easier to plan for another time.
inevitably, everyone who is younger than you seem way younger and the people who seemed way older are no longer “that” old. this becomes very apparent when you are at a club. people bumping into you goes from “whatever” to an annoyance.
finally, you know you are growing up when you no longer miss those things that used to occupy or better yet waste your time. if men reach this point by the time they are 30, they are in good shape. if women don't reach this point by 30, they are living in denial!
