If Prince Charming Existed

If Prince Charming Existed

If Prince Charming Existed

 

Since the V-day is on its way. I know I say many a thing about how amazing being single is or why I don’t need a man in past posts but what if the infamous Prince did exist? I have voiced my opinion about fairy tales and happy endings but if per chance Prince Charming did exist, I wonder how quickly I would change my tune. If by some mystical reason he did exist and exist for me, I am not sure I have a clear drawn out picture of who he would be. My last, most significant ex, I was with for almost 7-ish years and he was not a prince by far. In an effort to contradict myself, he was as close to my ideal as I ever expected could exist. We did grow together, which is an actual concept I feel my “prince charming” should be able to grasp. Not just growth as a couple but individually. I think the ex and my most basic downfall was as our relationship grew in length of time we individually grew apart but not in bad ways necessarily. We out grew our relationship is perhaps the best way to put it. We to this day are still so similar to each other it’s scary but our relationship wasn’t enough for me. He didn’t love me or appreciate me enough, I thought, but Prince Charming would, he should right? For as long as I was with my ex I don’t think he ever really saw me or actually understood me. I have yet to find a man that clearly does.
If I could cherry pick this prince to be everything I aspire to have and even dreamt a man could be this would be a cinch. The Prince and I don’t have to want the same things or even like them but he needs to let me have mine while I let him have his. He must have a drive and aspirations to always do and be better but not so much so that it is overwhelming or alienating. He needs motivation and can never stop dreaming or being inspired. Mr. Princey Pants must love my big huge obnoxious family and never question my dedication the them or to him. He has to love them and want to be with them as much as I do or else he is useless to me.
Since we are dreaming up the man why not dream up the scenario to boot?!?! I would like my prince to swoop in to my life at one point because he knew I would be in need of a compass (because my morals often do need a direction). He would be a steadfast pinnacle to lead me and give me hope that despite all of the insecurity and fear I deny exists in my head that this love will not be bad and it will continuously prove to be a momentous addition to my life and maybe soul (I am still unsure if those things exist but I am using it more as an adjective for dramatic effect). He will show me that I have to trust in myself because in the end the path that I want to be there, the one I know has to exist for me is there. All I have to do is just take it.
Maybe I’m spoiled that way. That I want and need a man to possess those qualities otherwise I feel he is unfit for me. I need a man to evoke so a sense of pride, happiness and respect from me because he feels the same about me. I want to trust him implicitly to the point that my cell is his cell; my computer is his computer and the like. I have never been that honest or comfortable with a significant other in my life but I would like to be. The Prince would let me be.
I also don’t think it is too much to ask for him to be a super tall, heavily bearded full of tattoos kind of guy either…I mean while we are dreaming. He also has to love animals unconditionally, not be a huge fan of murdering them or wanting me to. I would want him to be creative in some capacity and not be a racist, Obama hating conservative because that would be awful. I would one day wind up on Snapped or some such nonsense.
All jokes aside I don’t need anything fancy. I want a real man who respects me, our relationship and the life we build together. The idea of marriage and children really make no sense to me and most of it is because Prince Charming doesn’t seem to exist. Not any where I have looked anyway. While many of my friends and family members claim to have found him once the honeymoon stage is over everyone is in the same complacent discontent with each other. Once couple after the next one upping their horrible experiences of married and parent life. Maybe Charming doesn’t exist and is Prince Ok You’ll Do….For Now. That however isn’t really good enough for me. If I choose to love you and share my life with you, you are balls to the wall all in or I am out quicker than you can blink. I’ve learned giving chance doesn’t change the person it gives them a respite to find something wrong with you and even the score. At this point as charming as that Prince dream may be I think I will stick with my mini zoo until someone maybe one day really shakes things up for me and forces me to change my mind.

Trendy Pea’s Room Decor

I love the wall decal ideas even for adults but they make so much more sense when decorating children’s rooms. Children grow fast and in the process their tastes, hobbies, and preferences grow along with them. Previously decorating any room took so much work and effort with borders, paint colors and decorations. Now all you have to do is change some color schemes, decals and nic-nac’s and boom new room! I love it. I have found a few super cute things I found that not only would I like to have in my room but I think some kids might enjoy them as well.Shop For Baby And Kids Modern Room Decor!

BUTTERFLY FLURRY FABRIC DECAL

BUTTERFLY FLURRY FABRIC DECAL

 

 

I really think everyone can benefit from butterflies but I can see how some people might not be as in love with it as I am. I do wish there were more however. I would like to see an entire wall full of them if I were decorating. I know this theme would probably make most little girls super happy.

 

 

BIRDS AND OWLS FABRIC DECAL

BIRDS AND OWLS FABRIC DECAL

 

I am not particularly fond of the random banner but I suppose if you took a permanent marker and perhaps wrote letters on it or something I would like it better. I am a sucker for owls and the color green! I think it is such a serene color and in combination with the blue and white this decoration would probably aid in helping keep baby feeling cool, calm and collected.

 

 

TREE WITH BIRD NEST FABRIC DECAL

TREE WITH BIRD NEST FABRIC DECAL

 

For me this decal has all of the right components: pink, nature like & patterned! How cute would this be for a little girls room. I won’t lie I would like it in my room as well. It’s not too busy or intricate so you can see how the design might be able to last a while in the room before her tastes change.

 

 

Owl Mobile

Owl Mobile

 

I know this isn’t a decal but what ever, I heart it. Although I may seem too old for a mobile in my room I don’t think I would care. I could paint/decorate it any way I wish and have a super new decoration for my home. I think kids would appreciate it as well. You could even make a game of it and let them decorate how ever they want.

10 Super Fun Kids Gifts for The Holidays

I am almost finished shopping for the holidays and I couldn’t be happier. In my searches for the children in my life I happen upon some of the coolest stuff I have seen in a while! I decided to give you the list because not only are these items beyond reasonably priced they are hella cool!

Fashion Design Studio I thought I was cool when my mother got me a little sewing machine, fabric and thread so I could design my own Barbie clothes but this goes all out!! I kind of want this for myself now! This is great for your budding fashionista or fashionistor! Give the kids a chance to be creative. Besides being awesome this will totally keep your little one occupied for hours and we know that is the key to a good gift!

Doctor Dreadful Stomach Churner I’ve seen a commercial for Doctor Dreadful and I’m not gonna lie the stuff looks super fun! This is super fun for that kid you know that is all into bugs and grossing people out! It is kind of a science lab they can eat! Gross out little girls all you want!

Scavanger Hunt For Kids As a kid and even as an adult I loved scavanger hunts! This is even a little educational which is a plus whenever you are purchasing children’s presents. The double plus is this is an indoor hunt soooo the kids can stay warm and cozy while playing and not sitting in front of the television.

Enchanted Fairy Garden Kit I really just put this on here because I want it and I think it is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen! You can grow your own magical garden! I would have died for this when I was a little lady!

Snow Dino Decoration Kit How fun is this seriously! This kit comes with your very own dino decor to add to any snow creation you kid wants to make. There are other sets as well but this is a gift that could be reused over the years which gives you more bang for your buck.

Snow Ball Blaster This is another gift only good if you leave somewhere that has snow but either way I totally wish I had one of these when I was a kid! Not only does it shoot snow balls but it holds 3 for you! You can kick butt with this thing. I kind of think this is also good for that grown-up kid you know. Most boys/men enjoy any kind of gun right?

Hog Wild Spinning Ice Cream Cone I love this!!! I know ice cream is probably the last thing on anyones mind in the cold months but how cool/fun is this!! Another great price of $7.97!! The only set back is you can’t choose the color. Other than that this is awesome for tons of reasons.

Hot Wild Spinning Fork I actually got this for my father but I know a few people who have purchased this for their children and it is super fun! The spinning fork is excellent for pasta’s or for that child that doesn’t like to eat. The Hog Wild Spinning Fork can help keep them interested.

Microwavable S’mores MakerI love S’mores!! I know kids love them too! Now they can make them year round and without a huge mess involved! This is great for any kid at only $7.20 you can get it for a child you aren’t too fimiliar with or for grab bags and secret santas for the kids.

Hog Wild Moo Mixer This is soooo cool! You push the button and it mixes your chocolate milk for you! Yes, I know you could just use a spoon but a kid would think this was awesome! I think it is pretty awesome myself!

My Top 10 Fave Halloween Movies

Halloween is my super fave holiday ever. I love scary movies and any thing to do with being haunted (even though I think my house is haunted and it scares the crap out of me). I wanted to share some movies that are near and dear to my heart. Some aren’t really that scary but they remind me of good Halloween times which is always a plus.

Psycho (50th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray]Psycho is the reason I have a clear shower curtain in my bathroom at home and why at hotels I leave the curtain open a little so I can check to see if anyone is coming to stab me. I love every one of the Psycho installments dearly.

The Lost BoysBlah,blah,blah predictable blah blah. I do not care. The Lost boys has super hot bad ass boys and although the movie isn’t scary these were the men that made you want to get bitten long before Edward did.

House of 1,000 Corpses I know everyone didn’t love this movie but I did. Rob Zombie knows how to gore it up and he does just that in this. This movie is creepy and you cross your fingers you never run into those people ever because the thought is too scary.

The Devil’s Rejects
I know this isn’t a favorite of many but I love Rob Zombie and this movie has super gore and kind of what you would expect for the sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses. Maybe not amazing story or plot but you will be grosses out by the mega violence and gore!!

SawI know you are thinking “How typical” but I only prefer the first 2 or 3 out of all of them. There is only so much I can deal with.

Paranormal Activity OK, this is obviously not from my childhood but movies like this get me every time. It reminded me of Blair Witch which is a movie I have seen twice and will never watch again because at the age of 18 I saw that movie on two separate occasions and had to sleep with mymom for almost 6 months after that as well as still having an issue with basement but paranormal activity gave me that feeling once again but thank goodness my scared feelings wore off in less time.

Children of the CornOnly the first few of these are really good because after that it gets a little lame but I loved these movies and still to this day am creeped out by corn fields and large groups of children.


Sleepaway Camp: Survival KitI used to watch these with one of my oldest friends while we were in elementary school or maybe middle school. We rented them probably 100 times or more from our local small video rental store, that is how long I have been watching it. I don’t even think places like Blockbuster even existed then. The Sleepaway Camp movies are gory and unexpected but great to watch.

Scream SetThis set isn’t all that scary but when the first one came out i watched it over and over again. I loved the characters (incredibly 90′s) and they were really just funny. These will forever have a place in my heart.

Nightmare on Elm Street Collectionis my all time favorite! I can watch them over and over again with the exception of the second one which is soo horrible I can never sit through the full movie. I have watched every of them (NOT 2) SOO

Create Your Own Magical World of Friends, Fun, Adventure and filled with Whimsical Creatures at Kindlandia!

About Kidlandia.com:

The founder of Kidlandia.com, illustrator and entrepreneur Brian Backus, has been living in a fantasy world of maps and monsters since he was a very little boy. Kidlandia.com grew out of Brian’s 2004 concept to create personalized maps of imaginary kingdoms for children’s rooms. He believed that by providing children their own kingdoms, with friendly monsters as companions, kids would gain an increased sense of confidence, control, and self-worth. In addition, by naming the cities, islands, and other features of the kingdoms after family and friends, kids would feel more connected to those who love them. Brian, who produced educational multimedia titles for Disney and Voyager, was also intrigued by the idea that by engaging kids in namesake kingdoms, he could motivate them to understand maps, and accelerate reading skills.

Melissa & Doug


Melissa & Doug-Leading Designer of Education Toys

I’m not sure if you have ever heard of Melissa and Doug but they make amazing toys for children. Melissa and Doug’s toys foster creativity for children by making educational toys that don’t look so educational. Everytime a child in my life has an event coming I look forward to what awesome gifts I can buy them.
educational toys help children use their imagination in a world where children are constantly bombarded with media. It is very important we give our children’s brains a break from media it can be harmful in the future. Teaching children to use their imagination helps children be more social as well as creative.
I hate to admit it but I even buy Melissa and Doug toys for myself. Their arts & crafts and food play toys get me everytime. I love their design and the price is always right. Have you ever tried Melissa and Doug toys before? If not you should right away.
About Melissa and Doug:
Twenty years ago, we started our company in the garage of the home where Doug grew up — we had to be careful not to disturb Doug’s parents who were still living there! Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to move into a real office down the road, a building that actually has separate ladies and men’s bathrooms! Our philosophy has remained the same over the years–to make each and every customer a happy and permanent member of the Melissa & Doug family, while offering products with tremendous value, quality and design. We’ve always welcomed customer suggestions, and we continually strive to make improvements to our products. We’re honored by the faith you place in us and view it as our responsibility to continue to earn your trust in the years to come!
