Wednesday Wondering – The Stuff I Wonder About

Hello sweet friends!  You probably cannot believe that I am actually posting on a regular schedule.  That’s right, it’s Wednesday and time to share what I’m wondering about these days.  You know, those random things that pop into your head and you wonder….someone surely has to agree with me on this.  Or, really?  That can’t be right.  They’re the things about which  you can’t seem to get a real answer.  You know, you just wonder about them.  Many of those type of thoughts are actually about my kids and the things that come out of their mouths.  However, those are not always fit to share.  Or about other drivers on the road…  In any case, here’s where I throw them out for you to chime in on .  So, let’s chat.


The Natural Look ~ Really?

Do men really want the all natural look? I say not really.


Let’s get real here, if you follow along with me on Facebook you might have seen the video about the six traits that make women attractive to men.  This was apparently some sort of scientific study.  So, the thing I wonder about is this…they say men like the natural look.  No makeup.  Do you believe this?  Or do you think that what they like is the look of no makeup that is achieved by using makeup?  Wow!  That’s a mouthful.

I am finding it hard to believe that men really want the all natural ~ uneven skin tone, dark circles, blemishes, no lash look.  I think what they might mean is they don’t want the women to look like hookers and that’s about it.  What do you think?  Even Mr.LouiseMarie says he likes the natural look….however, after a couple of days he sure thinks I look great when I come out with makeup and am ready to go out.:)  Anyway, I don’t care what you say…I think any guy would prefer either girl on the right.

Beef Jerky


I wonder why people want to eat beef jerky?


Why?  That’s my first question.  I wonder why would you want to eat dried out meat that tastes smokey?  All of my boys like it and that bewilders me.  In fact, we took a short road trip this past weekend.  At one quick restroom stop Mr. LouiseMarie decided to buy some jerky.  No, he wasn’t hungry.  It just looked “good” to him.  Again, why?  Over the years I’ve learned to live with the amount of meat these boys eat so I really was not surprised.

However, as we drove on down the highway, Mr. LouseMarie offered me a bite (no thank you) that looked like the end was covered in hair.  Seriously, it looked like troll hair on the end of that beef jerky strip.  Even if I had wanted some meat (which I didn’t), I could not get past the appearance of it.  Let me add to that visual the sound effect of ripping through it.  It was all very prehistoric if you know what I mean.  Haven’t we evolved past this?  So, I ask you, why?  I mean all you carb avoiders, high-protein eaters….isn’t there a better alternative?

Aging  Rock Stars

Okay, I fear that this thought might be thought unkind.  Let me preface this whole thing by saying, that I too am getting older.  Everyone does.  I understand that indignities that happen to your body as you age as well.  So, I am NOT judging these rock stars.

HOWEVER, I wonder, do we really want to see Mick Jagger at the age of 73?  Rod Stewart at 72?  Or Steven Tyler at 69?  Can’t we say that they had their time and now we don’t really need to see them parade around or dance in spandex?  Are women still swooning upon seeing them even now?  I love the music.  I have fond memories.  But at some point it just seems kind of distasteful to watch them strut on stage.  It just isn’t doin’ it for me.  How about you?  If you’re not sure, let me point you to a video of Rod Stewart from Dancing With the Stars.  Focus on the video at 5:19 and tell me if you think I’m wrong.  I cannot wait to hear what you think!

Check out the video here.


So, I think I’ve given you enough to think about for today.  Don’t forget to comment below.  Perhaps you would like to set me straight on a thing or two.  Also, you can join my email list here.   That way you’re sure to not miss a single post. 🙂


Until next time~
