It's Opposite Day

SIDE NOTE: Yesterday afternoon, I wrote a short update about our IVF process. Be sure to check it out if you're interested in staying up with the latest. (here)
It's opposite day, didn't you know? What I mean is that yesterday's blog post was essentially 5 things that I suck at, while today is 5 things that I rock at (hence, opposite day). I encourage each and every one of you to blog about a similar topic sometime. It is good to recap all of the positives about yourself! #ThinkHappyThoughts
I rock at... being accepting.
I don't care what you look like, where you come from, or how many cows you own (random)... if you've got a rockstar personality and a loving heart, you will be my friend. I have IRL friends from all walks of life, and that's what keeps things interesting in my book!

I rock at... being a wife.
Absolutely, above all else, becoming a wife is my greatest accomplishment to date. I like to use 'wife-ing' as an verb because I feel like it's something that I do; not just what I am. Deep thoughts y'all... deep thoughts.

I rock at... web design.
I am in no way, shape, or form an expert on web design, but I pride myself on always creating my own blog designs. It's something that I genuinely enjoy. Plus, it's neat knowing that Texas Mrs.' design is one of a kind.

I rock at... staying positive.
Keeping with the opposite theme, by now you know that Negative Nancy's are not okay with me. That is because I'm a Positive Polly. Or whatever you wanna call me. I tend to see the glass as half full, rather than half empty. And you should too.

I rock at... finding a good bargain.
It sickens when/if I ever have to pay full price for something. Luckily, that is rare. I tend to be a bargain shopper and only buy items that I "need" (aka want) that are on sale. TJ Maxx & Marshalls are my besties. And so is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. OMG y'all. Surriously. I snagged two KS earrings (gray & orange) for a steal of a deal recently.


  1. These are such GREAT things to rock at! And I agree, having friends from all walks of life keeps things interesting! And love, love, love your positive attitude, always! :)


  2. I love everything about this post :) Ahh, that Nordstrom Anniversary Sale = LOVE

  3. I love "wife-ing", that is awesome!! I did take a look at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale but just didn't see anything I couldn't live without at the moment. Instead, I found a super cute dress on the Maurice's website for $9.99 whoop whoop!!

  4. It is so great that you're staying positive. Nothing good comes out of worry or being negative. It doesn't change the outcome, it only stresses the situation more. I'm super proud of you.

    As far as bargaining goes... I'm right there with you! I don't remember the last time I payed full price for a clothing or accessory item. Go us! Bargainers to the rescue! I found a Kate Spade purse the other day $100 less than anywhere else I can seem to find. It's taking everything in me not to buy it. I know it'll be gone soon.

  5. The Nordstrom sale is going to be the death of me!! I can't stop shopping!

  6. You do keep your page looking oh so spiffy all the time...wish I had that talent. ;)

  7. These are all VERY admirable traits. You are a bargain shopper AND a blogger? NO WAY! You don't meet many of those often!! :)

  8. Wife-ing, I love it! You know how I feel about the negative nancy's.... Right there with ya girl :)

  9. Love all of these traits! So cool that you know how to do web design. I wish I did!

  10. Ugh..Allison. I had avoided Nordstrom up until now! I want something!!

  11. You definitely rock at being an awesome wife and an awesome bloggy friend as well! :) I LOVE your positive attitude!
