On My Mind


I listen to club music when I edit photos…it’s the Jersey in me.
I believe nobody loves me more than my dog.
I usually order a slice of pizza and a large side of regret on Thursday evenings.
I love my laptop…I call her my conjoined twin.
More often than not my humor is inappropriate and this makes me smile.
Email is my love language.
I not-so-secretly think I’m my parents’ favorite child.
I wear too much jewelry.
I believe my husband is attracted my version of crazy.
I’m scared of the dark.
I’m addicted to ordering books from Amazon.com.
I sleep on flat pillows.
I dance every day in my office. Every. Single. Day.
I’d rather be the worst of the best than the best of the worst.
I put on too much face lotion when I go to bed.
One day I’ll make a frittata or quiche and call myself Mrs. Fancy Pants.
I bruise easily.
I’m a little bit scared all of the time, which makes me think I’m doing something right.

    Love it! Especially the one about your husband being attracted to your version of crazy. That’s true of my husband, as well! (My version, that is!)

    I love this! It’s a lot like my habits, but even more…I need to dance in my office more…and name my Mac. Club music is the only music to edit to.

    Hi Jasmine
    Fabulous post as always. I love your honesty. I am trying to be brave and blog more and put more of me into my posts!
    I too dance in my studio every day! One of these days I am not going to hear the door and i will get caught busting-a-move by a client! πŸ™‚
    Keep up the fabulous inspiring work.

    Jas, I did’t know you were from Jersey. I was born and raised in Newark NJ. I was a club head since 12. I have stopped clubbed as of now but when I hear the music, I just can’t help my self. "Oh Black Betty" -lol

    Love what’s β€œOn Your Mind” I may have to use your line β€œI’d rather be the worst of the best than the best of the worst.” But I will give you the credit. Besides everybody knows that I wouldn’t come up with something like that anyway. Really enjoy your blog.

    I have to say, the "office dancing" and the "little bit scared all the time" are my favorites πŸ™‚ Fun and human ?

    1st-Im from Jersey so your #1 cracked me up πŸ™‚ I usually listen to Pitbul while I edit…makes the time fly!

    2-I’m convinced my Daisy (the chosen pup) loves me more then anything too!!

    3-Inappropriate humor is the best kind!

    4. I’m just addicted to Amazon!!

    5. I think being scared all the time keeps you on your toes…and you are DEFINITELY doing something right πŸ™‚

    Have a great weekend!

    OMG You are SOOOO Mrs. Fancy Pants! I was just watching that show and thinking "You know, I think I am a mix of Gretchen with the logic of Heather." Gretchen will say or do anything but Heather is the sensible one. WISH I WAS INVITED TO PARTIES WITH DIAMONDS IN THE CHAMPS!
