Throwback Thursdays: The Smurfs


The Smurfs, one of the best cartoons of all time! Well, one of my favorites at least. I loved this cartoon so much that I tried to convince my mother to name my little sister after Smurfette. That didn't work. She instead convinced me that we could combine Tracy with Smurfette, and that could be the baby's middle name. My sister's middle name became Tracette. (My mommy was so nice. I really believed we made that name up).

My favorite Smurfs were Smurfette, Brainy Smurf and Papa Smurf. The show would not have been complete without Gargamel and Gargamel would not have been complete without his cat! I don't remember if the cat had a name. I do remember however, that the Smurfs had their own little Smurf language. I miss that show. I might not have to miss it for too long though. Just like the rest of our old favorites, the Smurfs are making a comeback.

Watch out, because in 2011 they're coming out with a Smurf movie! Check it out: The Smurf's

  1. Although the Smurfs weren't my generation, I do remember them. What a great story about your sister and her middle name!

  2. Thanks for commenting Nanny Dee. I still think Smurfette would have made a great middle name for her.

Blurred Lines

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Trust

Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
