About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. I just told Jennifer when she posted her Quotable Sunday.. I can't pick a favorite! SAME HERE THEY ARE ALL WONDERFUL!

  2. Good quotes! I love the Carl Sandburg quote about life being like an onion.

    I can't believe it is already August either! I am conflicted about the end of summer. I am looking forward to a quieter home, but I will miss the kids and sleeping in that extra hour and a half.

  3. Love the quotes!It's so true that life is like an onion!:D
    Have a nice day!:))

  4. Where has the year gone?

    This one is my fave:

  5. Happy QS! I love all the quotes, but this one by Mark Twain really does explain it all! LOL!
    "When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained."

    Have a great week, don't know how much I will get around to blogs while we are down the shore!

  6. August sucks! It's summer, but school starts in a few weeks. BOO! HISS!

    Justine 😮 )

  7. I've been thinking a lot about this lately. Time is going by so fast; and lord knows, I ain't getting any younger. I keep reminding myself "live first, blog later" but it doesn't always work out in that order 😀

  8. Love the Carl Sanburg quote! I can't believe we're in August either. The old quote "Time Stands Still For No One" is proving to be true.

  9. Great quotes. This is my fave:

    "Life's more amusing than we thought."
    Andrew Lang

    (note to self: the glass really is half full!)

  12. Great collection of quotes! I like the one that is highlighted … about making your life worth living. Sometimes I think my life would be a very boring movie!

  13. Words to live by! I just have such a tough time reading more than one in a sitting because I have to mull each one over so much!

  14. I love: "It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others."

    "There are good days and there are bad days, and this is one of them."
    Thanks for the awesome quotes!!

  16. I liked the life is a stage quote!!! I am very unrehearsed for it. I want a do over sometimes!!!

  17. Love those! I've always liked the Carl Sandburg one. His home is not far from where I grew up, and is an interesting tour!

  18. How about: "Life's a bitch, and then you die?". Nah, that one is a bit negative but it always made me chuckle.

  19. Great quotable quotes choices 🙂 Love the one by Mark Twain, the "Let us live so that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry." Hope we all do get the chance to live our lives fully 🙂

  20. I love these! LOL

  21. I'm so glad August is here! That means in about a month it is going to start cooling down a little bit in Arizona, the 115 degree heat is almost ever! It's like a light at the end of a tunnel.

  22. These are great!! I like the first one best :)…yes the summer is flying by…I will be glad for fall so the temps come down out of the hundreds here!
