Tuesday Tunes

Hans Zimmer - "The Beach Song" ...

Do Gerbera Daisies have a smell?  Funny that I don't know this and they are my favorite flower.  I will for sure have a bunch of daisies in my hand.  I will wear an off white, form fitting gown, because, after all, it's my imagination and I am totally thin!  Of course on a beach, or near a beach at least.  Tiny white sparkly lights and all sorts of soft colored candles.  And the background music, for starters is this little wonderful tune.  It will play as I walk hand in hand with my future hubby as we just said our "honey'weds." ....    

you might have heard from a little movie called True Romance ...

30 Days of Blogging

Day 2 - The Meaning Behind Blog Name

Many, many, many wondering moments of "should I, will I blog?" was never followed by what to write or what to call my blog.  Once I decided to just do it and if I suck at it, who cares, when deep down I do care ... anyhoo, once that decision was made to go for it ... the name just kind of popped out there.  All my life, well, at least as far back as my teen years, I have always been TRYING to improve on something.  Sometimes I win, most the time I push it off for Future Desiree (you'll hear about Future Des quite a bit on this blog) .. but I usually always have some "plan" to better me, to make me happier.  So, Truly Trying to finally get it right.  Get what right?  Who knows?  But I will truly try to do it ...

Oh, for the love of shoes!

Miss me?  I hope to finally be done with this on-again-off-again love affair of blogging.  I don't know what's my deal.  When I find the time I read so many other blogs and the craftiness of others blogs puts my little Truly-Trying page to shame.  Lately I feel the cobwebs of my creativity nestled all throughout my brain.  I am trying to dust them out of there, asking my big brain to please do some head-cleaning and wake the flip up and start thinking! 
So, I am ending my weekend, gearing up for my Monday, yay for tomorrow.  I want to share a little thought I had from the other day at work.  Who do you buy your shoes for?  Seriously weird question, right?  In the break room last week I complimented a co-worker's darling shoes.  She says to me, "Thank you!  You're like the tenth person today to notice.  Just waiting for my boyfriend to notice them."  At first I thought she meant maybe the man might notice the price tag or the bill of these hot-rod shoes, but after a little more conversation I understood she bought those shoes in hopes the man would love them.  My thought: "HUH?"  Yes, I have a good man, he compliments me and does all sorts of nice, romantic stuff, but I don't think he ever complimented my shoes.  He could probably care less if I am wearing a rockin' dress with tennis shoes or 6-inch-heels.  So, my lady friends, I ask, for the love of shoes, who do you buy them for?  
I think deep down we buy them for the compliments of our fellow ladies.  If I happen to be at our local coffee shop and see you cruisin' through the door strutting in some majorly cute feet covers, I am so going to give you a shout out and tell you how cute your shoes are, or your purse or your shirt ... you get the idea.  But I wonder, how many men will do the same?    
Oh, for the love shoes ... here's a few loves ...
