THOSE WERE THE DAYS......

I was recently tagged by The Purple diva herself...you know over at Purple Diva's Diary I recently found her blog and it's awesome...and I was also tagged by my friend Heather who I love to visit because her blog is cool and she always makes me feel welcome. Go say "hi" to her at Sugar n Spice mostly nice.


The tag was for 10 honest things about me...so I decided to twist it up a bit...here is what I came up with.....

10 things I can't do anymore:

#1 Touch my Toes....okay to be perfectly honest I can't even see my toes....but I really hate to admit it.
#2 Read any print smaller than a stop sign without my reading glasses....and yes if you must know...I do wear them on a pearl chain around my neck. Think....."your 2nd grade teacher".


#3 Wear a thong. Yeah...like my butt was ever built for a thong. Butt floss is not an option...never was...never will be.

#4 Oogling young hot guys. Lets face it...when you are old enough to be their mother....you start to feel a wee bit CREEPY.



#5 Walk in high heels. And at my age...you don't have to anymore. And while we're on the subject. What is with those witch shoes....and why would anyone want their feet to look THAT LONG????



#6 Eat large quantities of really unhealthy food without getting FAT. Remember when you were young and actually had a METABOLISM?

#7 Cough, Sneeze, or Laugh without leaking. I know all you youngins are snickering....JUST YOU WAIT!


#8 Be able to think or function at all, with less than 8 hours of sleep. I prefer 10 if I can get them. And even then I need a nap during the day.




#9 Wear Spandex... At least without frightening small children. (I know a picture of a woman would have fit my story better....but I me some Nacho Libre!)


#10 Remember even simple things....like what I needed to get at the store, what I did yesterday, how to find my way home, my husbands name...........


So there it is....10 awful truths. And since we're on the subject....(nice segue coming)....What's NOT awful is getting really cool awards from nice people like Amy over at Business Matters I'm new to her blog but I love visiting there. She bestowed this very nifty award.

And Heidi who is a real sweetheart and always has something fun happening over at her place at Adventure Girl Wannabe was kind enough to think of me with an award.

If you haven't been over to the ultra chic and uber fab blog "Even the Nice Ones" then go over for goodness sake. Just look at this glam award she so kindly gave me!

And my good friend Carolynn at A glowing Ember gave me this beauty. She paints the most amazing pictures with her words...she writes these deep posts that always get me thinking...which usually makes my brain hurt...but I like it!


Thanks ladies. I really appreciate you thinking about me for these wonderful awards. And thank you all for stopping in to read my nonsense! You all just make me smile!

How funny Nikki. I totally relate to quite a few unfortunately. But the Nacho boy cracked me up. Stretchy pants. I do not like the end of junky fast food either. So sad.

CJ is a doll.

Cynthia said...

Renna said...

Yeah, I can't do any of those things either, for the same reasons. It sounds funny when you admit it, though. ;-Þ

Firefly said...

LOL I just so love your posts, you always make me smile :)

Tiffany said...

~♥~ Monica S said...

Monica

Ma'dame French said...

I hate to admit but I may suffer from a few of those...aging SUCKS! truly it does;) French

J'Ollie Primitives said...

Brain lint. That's why I can't remember anything.

The Blonde Duck said...

I love the thong picture! LOL!

Bo said...

Hi Nikki...I so needed this visit to your place today for some cheer...Loved it..my computer is soooo sick, I've got to try to get somebody to fix it...so if I'm missing in action, you'll know why...Oh, the misery!! ;-) Bo

Darlene said...

Morning Nikki,
Most of those apply to me also.....

Congratulations on all your awards!!

Sandy Toes said...

You crack me up...I love reading you in the morning it makes is "lighter"..spandex..ha ha!
-sandy toes

French Fancy said...

I could identify with so many of those, Nikki but they did make me laugh. Even when I could wear thongs I never liked them - there's no mystique or allure. Also
touching your toes can really damage your hamstrings - a trainer once told me that (yes, during the three months I actually belonged to - and went - to a gym)

We're all growing old in a blogging way and I love it.

Sincerely Yours said...

Morning Nikki! This about SUMS IT UP!! for a lot of us!!! Thanks for not making me feel alone in the stinkin aging thing!!! Sincerely, Jeannette

Pedaling said...

the realities of age....isn't it great!

NHizName said...

Nikki, just found your blog a couple of days ago and had to come back for another visit. I always need a good laugh in my day and you have a wonderful sense of humor!
The thong thing? Well, I never understood why anyone would wear one of those things....young or old!
I'll be back to visit again for sure!
Janice

Alyson (New England Living) said...

You're awesome and you always make me laugh! I love me some Nacho Libre too!

AJ said...

Well, I'm with you on a few of those but definitely not the oogling of the young, hot men:) I'm not quite old enough to be their mom just yet;) Yet, I say!!

big hair envy said...

Thanks for keepin' it real Nikki! I suffer from all of those things, except the pee one. I'm sure that will start in the next couple of weeks:D

Once again, CONGRATS on all of your fabulous awards. They continue to be well deserved!

Charli and me said...

Good morning Nikki,
I was laughing very hard reading your post. It seems we have a lot in common LOL Congratulations on all your lovely awards. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Twice as Nice said...

If I comment on your post will you forget I visited? LOL You are too funny. Atleast you are aging gracefully. You still have your humor!!

ko said...

ok why did you have to put that picture of a CHEESEBURGER on here.....that looks DELICIOUS! leaking 29...do it..hate it...NACHO LIBRE LOVE HIM TOOO!!!! ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVES!
love you
koko

Becky said...

Hey Nikki;

Hope you're having a wonderful morning despite all the things you will never do again!! LOL!!! Girl you hit the nail on the head with your list. It's been a long time since I could touch my toes! HA! HA!

Congrats on your awards!!!

Kristen said...

Love your twist..too bad I can relate to many of these

Neabear said...

Naps?? What are those? I don't get those. That must explain why I am so tired all the time, I'm missing the naps. Too bad I don't have time for them. I am not allowed to sleep on the job.

Shelia said...

Hi Nikkiness! I can always depend on you for my daily giggle! I had that leaky thing going on - more like gushing! Got the little sucker fixed!! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Coco said...

Your blog always has me laughing.
I love it!

onlymehere said...

You make me smile Nikki! I identify so much with your honesty blog. Good thing no one asked me to be honest, it could get embarrassing! Have a great day. Cindy

Laura said...

Oh, I don't like that I fit into so many of those categories! Although I still like looking at eye candy every once in awhile!

Smilingsal said...

Hey! My feet are even longer than that! And, I still can't see them.

Carolynn said...

That's why God created knees. So we could bend our legs and bring our toes closer.

And, I agree. That's a big negatory on the thongs. Not sure who ever thought those looked good. Yeesh.

As for ogling good looking younger men. I have absolutely no problem with that. Deal with it, hottie. ;o)

Linda said...

Oh boy do I relate....

Another cute and fun post!!

Mabry's Gamma said...

Nikki,

I love your posts and unfortunately I can relate to many of those items. Love the post under this one, I think I will use that phrase.

Cheri

Bridget said...

Nikki, I am right there with you on all of those things (except the toe touching, I can actually do that one, I've been doing a lot of stretching in p.t.)
Dang it, why did you have to use a pic of an In 'n Out Burger??? Now I'm going to have to hit their drive-thru for lunch! Thanks for the extra pounds on my hiney! LOL

gingela5 said...

Congrats on all your awards! You are SO popular! :) Your ten things are so funny! I am slowly learning those things about me...I hate getting older!

Swirl Girl said...

I'm right with you on ALL the 10 things you can't do anymore...I don't think you forgot a single thing...but maybe you did - I can't remember.

joelandbecca said...

Way to go on all the awards. And the picture of the burger and fries just made me hungry!

Ginger said...

Funny post, Nikki. I love Crumpet with the glasses on. He sure is patient to let you do whatever you want to him.
I can relate to everyone of the things on your list except #8....wait a few more years and the insomnia slips in. No more sleeping.
I laughed at the thong...years ago my S.I.L. bought me one and tried to get me to wear it. Just to appease her I wore it for a couple of hours...felt like I had toilet paper stuck...lol. Gross.
Ginger

Beverly said...

Aha, I knew we were kindred spirits. One difference is the sleeping. I don't nap (it wouldn't go over well at work), and I don't sleep but about six house at night.

Eudea-Mamia said...

All so well deserved!!

What I love the best - the sound track. Brilliant touch.

And #4 - why I totally cannot get into HSM and Zac Ephron - ew.

Straight to Your Hart said...

#7 is plaguing me now...being sick and all. Try to hold all 4 cheeks..cough..cough...Not working!! hehe..cough..cough

Michelle said...

Scary but I can relate to a lot of your list!

One time I was casually checking out this young beef cake at the gym when he all of a sudden put on his HS class of' sweat shirt.

I was horrified when I realized that he was born the year I graduated for HS (the same that was on his sweat shirt). UGH!

tammy said...

I miss my spandex days too. And now I have to pee from laughing and I am really craving an In-n-Out burger.

Anonymous said...

Hey Nikki,

Sucks huh....time marches on.

One advantage to blogging is the amount of kegel exercising I've been doing.....LOL

Thanks for the chuckle,
Kathy :)

countrygirl3031 said...

Oh Nikki ~ I can so relate to all of the truths you have there! How sad is that?

Hugz,
Michele

Tracey said...

I am so with you on a lot of those!!! How sweet of you to share your glasses with Crumpie :)
and Congratulations on all your new awards...you deserve them!! You are gonna need more space for all them soon!!

Donna Marie said...

salmagundi said...

Way too much honesty for me - I don't want to admit that I can't do any of those things either! Thanks for my daily laugh. Sally

bloggin' Chrystal said...

Yes...YOU'VE left me laughing out loud again! It's even funnier that people walk by me and wonder why I'm laughing out loud! YOU win again....! Thanks for the lovely laughter!

Tulsi said...

These are so great. I LOVE the baby kitty!!

Not The Rockefellers said...

Nikki, you are a trip and brutally honest.

Peace - Rene

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

OMG - THANK YOU for bringing up the witch shoes. I've ALWAYS felt that way about them. And yes, why would women who loathe big feet want to wear anything that makes them look like they wear a size 42 shoe?

Sher's Creative Expressions said...

#7 is my personal favorite. . . maybe. . . because I CAN RELATE ~ LOL!!

Blessings,

Sher

Sue said...

Love the post today!! Especially the picture that went with the leakage...Have you ever taken Detrol? I would rather leak then take that stuff....makes you feel really weird and this coming from someone who has to pee every hour on the hour...

jeanne said...

Hello Nikki, Your ten awful truths are very amusing but too many of them came home to haunt me. LOL. Such is life. Your awards are awesome. I have not seen some of them before. Congrats on all of them Nikki, you are so deserving of them. You really do have a wonderful talent for writing and humor. Come by soon I am having a give-a-way and will draw later this evening.

We have had a snow storm all day and tonight too. We are actually snowed in. We are loving it.

Hugs...Jeanne

Bridget said...

Hag? ROFL! I've eaten a box of those all by myself, I guess it was kind of evil to send them to you! However, we are even because it is entirely YOUR fault that I just ate an In & Out burger and fries! So there. hehehehe

Rue said...

You, my friend, are the best award accepter EVER!! LOL

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Nikki :)

hugs,
rue

The Berry's Patch said...

I couldn't wear a thong in my twenties...nasty! I agree with everything except oogling over young hot guys. I still oogle. I'll be in a wheel chair with silver hair oogling. :-)

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

THIS WAS JUST AWESOME! I LOVED IT! I'm LOL! You crack me up and you so deserve these awards!

Picket said...

Hey Nikki! Hope you had a great thanksgiving girl. Gosh girl...don't hold nothing back on our account..you can tell all! lol lol Congrats on the awards girl & thanks for coming by and checking on me...hope you have a great week sweetie!

Nancy said...

Hi Nikki, This is funny but so true for me too! At least we can laugh about it. Congrats on the awards. Nancy

Anna Lefler said...

I don't believe a word of this! I bet you're touching your toes right now and laughing! Or, wait - was it touching a hot young Web guy?

Aw, hell. Same diff.

You slay me.

XO

Anna

Laurie - Decorating Fanatic said...

Quit making me laugh! Or I am going to be needing some help in the "fire hydrant" dept! :) Oh those were too cute and so true. I don't eat alot of meat but I do crave those In-n-Out Burgers and more sad is when the young guys stop looking back..or rushing to hold the door open for you! Now when I need it more either b/c my hand are full with groceries or kids - men run in the opposite direction. And I NEVER got used to a thong. Pure torture! You are so clever and the QUEEN of Beautiful Decor so stop trying to get out of it and get to decorating! It's coming early this year!! Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back soon. ~ Laurie

imjacobsmom said...

A few of those things may pertain to me - I'm just not going to tell you which ones....Robyn

Quirkyloon said...

I really liked #3 thong (NOT), #4 (creepy young man lust) and #7 (boy do I have some stories I COULD share, but I won't!

Hilarious, milady, quite hilarious!

:)

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Well, being 40, many of those are my truths too. 'Cept I'm going blind. Can't see far away, can't see close up. But, hey, it's kinda fun not to see what's going on. Now, after baby #3 my bladder was no longer my friend. Now that I'm 40, I feel the need to pee while peeing. I used to love me a thong, not anymore. Dear lord I cannot even imagine. As for the memory, my brain is filled up with so much trivial and useless information that it no longer has room to store anything that may be useful to me today. Metabolism? If you see mine, tell it I've been looking for it and I'm sorry. That one night stand should have been a relationship, I was selfish.
Love you, Love your blog, you rock with all them there awards too.

Michael said...

I've had a horrible day. I feel disgustingly fat from all the garbage I ate over Thanksgiving weekend. Work was crazy. I worked out tonight for the first time in months and am paying the price. And then I backed my car into a mailbox picking up a shirt from my sister's friend's house cause she works at Express and used her employee discount to save me 30 bucks. I should have paid full price.

Yet, your post made me laugh. Thanks, I needed that!

Anonymous said...

I don't know what an IN' Out burger is but I do know you are are funniest blogger in blogland. At least of the blogs I read. Unfortunately I am of an age where I have hit all of these "can't do anymores". Oh, thongs came out too late in life for me but I never had a desire to wear one anyways. Loved your photos with your "can't do anymores"...where do you find them? One of these days you will have to add getting harder to cut your own toenails to the "can't do anymore" list.

Sandy

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

How creative and funny. Thanks for the laugh...I felt like I was laughing at myself as I can relate to most all of those!

tardevil said...

I hope you don't take offense at this, but I get some comfort in knowing that when I go to the nuthouse, you'll be right there w/ me making me laugh! Love all the awards! Your honesty is once again....hilarious!

Shannon said...

Ouch... my feet hurt just looking at those heels!

Oh, and as for #7 on your list... after birthin' two babies, this happens to me all the time. My husband thinks its just downright hilarious that I cross my legs before I sneeze.

Fifi Flowers said...

You are soooooo FUN! Thanks for all the laughs!
GREAT awards! Love the glamour one!

Leslie said...

Congrats on your awards!! Love all the pictures!!

Lizzie said...

Susie Q said...

Sadly (and I am crying between my giggle!), so sadly, I can totally relate to all of these, yes, I said ALL okay! All dang it!
And then some...getting old ain't fo sissies...hmm...but it is not like anyone wanted to see me in spandex or a thong when I was 20 either!

You are just a hoot sweet lady.

Love,
Sue

bj said...
