The other night, while checking out a friend's blog, I had an epiphany of sorts.
First, a little backstory for you readers. I belong to Babycenter.com, where I've met some great women- most other mamas. I have two main boards that I frequent and I've even met (or have future plans to meet and have B photographed by) a few of the moms and babes. On one of these boards, a lot of the mamas started talking about Mommy Necklaces. I was intrigued, as I love all things blingy, so I checked it out. I became a Facebook fan and I've looked at a few here and there. I even bought one of a dear BBC friend, who just wasn't using it. But I couldn't bring myself to say that I even liked it much. I rarely wore it- leaving it in B's room, next to our rocker where we typically sit to nurse. Sometimes I'd throw it on if B seemed to be distracted. Of course, because I sell Cookie Lee jewelry, I almost felt some sort of aggression towards this piece of jewelry. I mean, how can I wear something like this, when I sell other jewelry- how will that look!? What if someone asks me about Cookie Lee and all I have on is a Mommy Necklace? What then?
Well the other day I threw the Mommy Necklace on while B was nursing. A little while later I realized I still had it on and it even looked pretty good with my outfit. Then last Sunday, while getting ready for church, I even contemplated putting it on, in case B needed something to play with during the sermon. I've worn it a few times since then... mostly around the house, but out some too.
Back to the epiphany. While reading Moose's Mama's blog and going through some of her giveaways, I realized that I really like the Mommy Necklace. I really want to win the Mommy Necklace. And if I don't win, I really might buy a Mommy Necklace.
...I guess you could say I've been epiphanized (if that's even a word)...
