Had me a blast…

Last night I had an epiphany!
I was at the Hollywood Bowl with a girlfriend for the “Grease Sing-a-long” 
when I realized Grease totally molded my outlook on love & relationships!!

I’ve always dreamed of magical summers at the beach, playing in the water, walking along the sand, watching beautiful sunsets.
Having that connection where you’re the only 2 beings that exist in the world, 
everything else fading to the background.

I know, I know its only a movie, 
but these emotions, these experiences could be real, right?
We could break into song at anytime, right?

 Ahhhh the 50’s ~ going for milkshakes, holding hands, nights at the drive-in, sock hops with a guy who’s got moves!

Today’s version I dream of ~ still milkshakes, holding hands, outdoor screenings & dancing the night away with a man who knows how to twirl me 🙂

It really hasn’t changed all that much (at least for me)

 I realized it also totally explained my attraction to “bad boys” too! Oh, those T-birds were sexy!!
I spent a good part of my 20’s chasing rock-a-billy boys & drooling over their fitted & cuffed dark jeans, tight white t-shirts & leather jackets.
But you know what I learned:
~ their attitude ain’t worth it in the end
~ they’re really not original
~ they never grow up

Fun to look at, but I want a real man now!

 If they were to have a reunion, I’d probably be chasing Eugene, the class nerd!

Even down to my style has found its influence from this movie, of course I tend to lean towards the sweet Sandy. I love full skirts & soft dresses, colorful & girly. I feel my most feminine & myself when I’m in a dress.
I used to get upset when people would always describe me as “sweet”, I mean what is that? Goody two shoes-y? Sappy? Nice?







Who knows….but now I comfortably own my “sweetness” 🙂
Momma always said, “you do get more with sugar than salt” 












Wella wop bomb a loo bop, a wop bam boom!!
Here’s to SUMMER LOVIN!!!
