Pumpkin Spice and everything nice

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be


Good morning caffeine lovers!

Today’s Brew: K-Cup with pumpkin spice creamer        Location: The couch

Its PUMPKIN SPICE season ya’ll!!! Can I get a big white girl WHOOP WHOOP!!!

Its been a crazy couple of weeks here in Letha land, and because of that I took a little hiatus. And for that I apologize!

One of my best friends turned 30!! We had so much fun celebrating her and this new decade in her life! –We can never get it together for pictures! But that’s why I love her–jakie I got an opportunity to see Taylor Swift in concert! FLOOR SEATS! To say it was amazing would be an understatement! I don’t think Ill ever be able to sit in nose bleeds again. Although my bank account would beg to differ. taylorLast Night Kim (A wonderful woman) gave some of us a yoga class. She is studying to be a yoga instructor and killing it. We all left uplifted and stretched! yogaAfterwards we all sat on Aimee’s back deck had a glass of wine, enjoyed the weather and talked. there are many things I enjoy doing with my friends, but the most important memories are the ones where we get lost in conversation and start to realize how far we’ve come.

So ya, its been a pretty amazing two weeks. Looking back now I don’t even know how I’m going to write what I’m about to. Writing these blogs are a constant reminder of how blessed I truly am. And for that I am thankful! Although the last couple of weeks have been amazing, I have been struggling with my anxiety.

As we have talked about in other post, I’m an over thinker and a lot of times that causes me to have anxiety. My 30-day challenge has helped a lot. Every time I would start to feel anxious I would tell myself three things.

  1. God has placed you here for a reason. This is a hard pill for me to swallow. My ambitious little spirit thinks I should be much further in life by now. I am working on being grateful and thankful for the path I have been given. and I want more than ever to walk it with grace and peace.
  2. You have over come far much worse than this. This may be odd but when I start to spiral down into my anxiety rabbit hole, I start to think of all the trials I have faced. For some this may make your anxiety stronger, for me it reminds me that I am strong. I have over come the darkness before and I will again.
  3. You NEVER give up. Every morning I wake up and start my day. No matter what I’m feeling or what trial I’m facing, My day goes on. I REFUSE to let my anxiety control this amazing life I have been given. I REFUSE to let a little self doubt keep me from running the race and I REFUSE to keep my strength locked down.

When I had the idea for the 30 day challenge, I had no idea how much I would need it in the weeks coming up. Please know, just because I told myself these encouraging words, I still broke down. More than once. I still went to bed feeling defeated. But every morning when I would wake up I knew I had a choice. I could give in or fight. And if you have ever tried to scare me by jumping out of a room, you know my first reaction is to fight. I DO NOT FLIGHT. (fight or flight–anatomy look it up)

This weekend is going to be an exciting one. Its my dads Birthday and are celebrating with a cookout. My father is truly and inspiration. He has had every reason to quit and give up on life. But he keeps fighting and keeps surviving. He is my inspiration. I don’t know how many more birthdays we will have with him, but I also don’t know how many more birthdays I will have for myself. We are not promised tomorrow, but what a blessing to know as Christians we are promised an everlasting life.

If your still following me on this journey in self discovery, Thanks for hanging out! And if you ever find yourself spiraling down into anxiety…what three things will you tell yourself?

Until Next time caffeine queens



30 Day Challenge

Bonjour les amateurs de cafe

Today’s Brew: K-Cup   Location: My bed


Translation: Hello coffee lovers! Or if your reading it in order, hello the lovers of coffee. I decided to spice it up a this week with one of my favorite languages, french! I took a class once in high school and can still say a select few phrases. Most of them having to do with coffee (of courses) and finding a bathroom. #Necessities. French is also known as the language of love and this week is all about self love!

-Did anyone else notice how smooth that transition was? A little forecasting into today’s topic if you will. :)-

Show of hands…who has negative thoughts daily? Who gets so caught up in their emotions that they start to spiral into anxiety attacks, depression, or other non fun things??

THIS GIRL RIGHT HERE! I am an over thinker mixed with an obsessive planner. Its hard for me to deal when things don’t go as planned or when I’m uncertain about a situation. But my main trigger is when I feel someone disapproves of me. This will send me straight down the anxiety rabbit hole.

For a long time I thought this was normal. Everyone feels like this. That what I would tell myself, so its okay. Although many people may feel like this, it is not in fact okay. Life is so much greater than what I was prepared to accept as my normal.

That was until now.

I have this friend who has struggled with anxiety for years. She tells me stories of her attacks, how she feels no one wants to be around her and worst of all how she isn’t happy with her body.

First let me start by saying that this woman is one of my favorite people to be around. She is hilarious, looks cute in anything (though she would OF COURSE not agree, but she does) has recently become a boss mom, and has the same if not better body then she had before!! She is able to laugh at herself and isn’t afraid to make herself look weird.

The problem is she laughs at herself to cover up her insecurities and she isn’t fully confident in her weirdness. Isn’t this all of us? I know it’s been me a time or two. We make jokes about ourselves to cover up the insecurities we have. But what if we could joke and laugh, all while actually feeling amazing in our own skin?

She tells me that she is always thinking these negative thoughts, and my first instinct is to tell her how amazing she is and that she is better than those thoughts. I also find myself telling her me too. I do the same thing.

Encouraging our friends is a wonderful thing, but until we believe those positive and encouraging words, they are in fact just that…words. In one ear and out the other, am I right?

This week I decided to tried yoga for the first time. It was a beautiful experience, and at one point the instructor told us to say something positive about ourselves TO ourselves. She explained that she could say these positive things, but until we heard them in our own voice from our own persons we would doubt them.

After that class I left feeling so refreshed with my next blog! A 30 Day Challenge. Some of this idea came form Rachel Hollis’s podcast on anxiety and how she dealt with it. She stated that our brain will go to its normal. And right now our normal is self doubt and fear of rejection.

It take 30 days to form a habit. And ladies we are going to take 30 days to retrain our brain. We are going to train ourselves to push those negative thoughts of our heads and force positive ones instead!!! We will embrace our weirdness and all its glory!

Step 1- For every negative thought you have, write down something positive. Grab a note pad and write down things you like about yourself! Cant think of anything? write down what others say they like about you! Maybe after the 30 days you will believe them too!

Step 2-Get active! Physical activity does wonders for the mind. Release some of that serotonin.

Step 3- Give yourself a little pep talk. I do this A LOT. sometimes its in my head, sometimes its a full blown conversation. Either way I am my biggest cheer leader.

Take these three steps and apply them to the month of September. Take control of your life, your thoughts, and your self image! Suffering is a choice. I refuse to let my anxiety take over this beautiful life God has blessed me with!

I am so excited to start this journey of self love! I’m even going to try yoga regularly! There is something so relaxing about twisting your body in ways you didn’t even know you could.

Good luck on your journey! I cant wait to hear your positive thoughts!!!

Until next time!



An unexpected journey

Someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business.

-Rachel Hollis


Today’s Brew: Lavender and honey latte     Location: Fort Smith Coffee Co

I first had this latte because they were out of chi, and their spiced chi latte’s are AMAZING! So when the barista asked what I would like instead, I said surprise me! And that he did! I now have a new favorite! I love coming to this place my coffee always looks pretty and the staff is ALWAYS nice and ALWAYS in a good mood.

-I credit this to the fact they probably get to drink all the coffee they want and who isn’t peppy with a little caffeine!-

This weeks lesson -I guess we can call it that- is one I should have learned a long time ago. “Someone else’s opinion of me is none of MY business.” If you have read or are reading Rachel Hollis’s book you’ve seen this quote before. -If your not reading her book…GET ON IT GIRL. Its incredibly inspiring.- When I first looked at this sentence, my first thought was I struggle with this so hard. EVERY move I make I’m trying to please someone around me.


1) Im afraid to say the wrong this because what if I’m not accepted and

2) I like to make others happy!

But as some point we have to look at the bigger picture.. and that’s our happiness. For the past few months I have been searching for what will make me happy. I’ve been grasping at anything and everything. Like buying a house, finally running that 5K -still training and its going well- starting an event business. -I WILL TOTALLY DO THIS ONE DAY! ITS MY DREAM CAREER- But in reality none of these things will make my truly happy until I’m happy with myself.

I knew what I was going to write about this week before today, but events that happened today have just pushed me that much further.

While training for this 5K I’ve been using an APP called couch to 5K. I’ve used it before but as we all know…I quit. I think…NO I know it was because I pushed myself way to hard. I would try and do more than the recommended amount of running and get burnt out. Obviously the people that made this APP knew what they were talking about…BUT DID I LISTEN?..NOPE.  -Classic Letha..as my friends would say- I wasn’t finishing my goals because I wasn’t doing them the right way.. I was trying to rush.

But when I decided to start training for another 5K I told myself that I was going to do exactly what the APP told me too. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? Its not that bad. I have actually started to enjoy running and the progress I’ve been making! I had successfully slowed down and let myself gradually grow.

Why did I need to accomplish everything in one day?

Along with trying to rush my 5K abilities, I also did this when I was in college. I have always wanted to graduate with a college degree, but like most people I didn’t know what in. So like any young shoe loving 20 year old…I picked a degree that would make me -what I thought was- the most money. Instead of taking a good look at what was out there I chose a major because I was slightly familiar with the field. I was majoring in Dental Hygiene.

I had been an assistant for a while and thought this is my next step. I went back to school with a vengeance. Because the hygiene program is VERY competitive my GPA needed to be on point! -My GPA was not on point…in fact it was (and this is embarrassing) barely even a 1.0- My first two years of college I was lost and didn’t know what I was doing..and my grades reflected that. So when I decided to go back I had to get in gear! And that’s exactly what I did! I took my measly 1.0 GPA and turned it into over a 3.0! I was so proud of myself.

UNTIL I didn’t get in the program.

-It is important to note that I have always wondered if hygiene was for me, or was I doing it for the financial stability.-

After I spent a good few days crying I decided to get certified as a dental assistant. I got a job before I was even done with my certification. -When GOD opens doors GOD OPENS DOORS!! can I get a AMEN!- I have been at this job for a little over a year now and I love my co-workers! But once again I’m finding myself wanting to do more with my life and realizing that maybe hygiene isn’t my true calling.

This is a hard pill to swallow for me. I worked my tail off for those grades! How could I not go to hygiene school?

Well if you’ve been keeping up..ITS NOT WHERE MY PASSION LIES.

I had always thought, a business degree wasn’t for me. I did not want to be in a office all day dealing with peoples problems, complaints..ect.

You wanna know what I do now? I sit in a office all day, dealing with people (and I love our patients) helping them through problems and trying to address their complaints.

you wanna know what else? I LOVE IT!!!

-Also can I note..that I thought cleaning plaque off teeth would make me happier than a job where I could organize..WHEN I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE AN EVENT PLANNER. COME ON LETHA!!!!-

Although I love my job..I still want to do more. And to do more I need a degree. So I took my happy self to the University this morning to apply for my associates degree. Granted a Bachelors was the main Goal, I knew I had enough hours to at least get an associates and move forward from there.

While talking to the adviser I asked what all I would need to finish a Bachelors.(not in hygiene) I had looked into this before and thought it would be at least 2-3 years to finish…I DID NOT want to think about school for 3 years when I had already put in almost 5. BUT as fate would have it, I had the adviser look into what all I would need to finish…YOU GUYS I only need 45 hours!! 45 HOURS!!!! That’s 3 semesters and 2 summer classes!!!!!

I couldn’t believe it! I could have my degree this time next year!

After a couple of hours I promptly went back and signed up for classes!

I will graduate From the University Of Fort Smith AR Winter of 2019 with a Bachelors in Organizational Leadership!

I am so excited for this new journey! I woke up this morning with no clue what the day would bring. And I still have no idea what tomorrow holds but I do know whatever it is..it will be amazing!

I will finally accomplish something I have wanted to do for so long!

And this is most defiantly going to give me more inspiration for my blog posts! I cant wait to share this journey with you!!!

Considering classes started this past Monday I should probably get some school supplies, Because I’m already behind. And as we have all learned…Letha does not like to be behind!

I’m off to organize my calendar and purchase some books!

Until Next time Caffeine Queens!



When it rains, it pours!


Happy Friday!

Today’s Brew: House Blend      Location: Stirred

This blog is coming at you hot and delicious from one of my favorite spots in my home town! Its so cute and has an awesome vibe! The lighting is low -would be perfect for a date- the music is always on point, and their blends are AMAZING! like so amazing I just want to swim in its aromas and flavors….-but since that might be weird…Id settle for a candle that smelled similar.-

– Full disclosure, I haven’t tried the coffee just yet…I have to let it cool down for a least 10 min before I actually dive in lips first. BUT the aroma its producing is so amazing I know my tongue will soon thank me.

This week was fairly slow and I started to worry I wouldn’t have anything to write about, but then my oh so faithful friends have once again given me words to type.

UPDATE: just took my first sip and my tongue is happy about it!! I didn’t even need to put creme or sugar into it! just a delicious black coffee, YES MA’AM!-

Here in Arkansas its been a rainy week. Every morning, afternoon and night…RAIN. for some people this is an inconvenience, but for me it only fuels my creative mind. I LOVE THE RAIN!!! Like LOVE the rain. I love waking up to the faint sounds of the thunder and rain hitting the window, I love the thoughts of romantic movie senses of people kissing in the rain, I love how God brings rain to feed the earth we all call home.  -I have a cousin who farms, and every time it rains, even though I know just because its raining in my town it may not be in his, I enjoy having him and his family cross my mind!- I LOVE RAIN. its relaxing, necessary for life AND who doesn’t love a good cup of something hot on a chilly rainy morning?

-Or afternoon, no judgment here! coffee is great with a nice steak dinner…just saying.-

whew if that wasn’t a tangent…IDK what is. but lets just all agree rain is good, rain is our friend, we love rain.

So, in saying all that my point was its been raining -;)- I’ve had to plan my running around the rain and this morning as I was running my way up to my house it started to sprinkle and as I was walking into the house it started pouring.

-I’m just going to call this a win at life! I looked at the radar and timed my 30 min run PERFECTLY, also I’m proud that I didn’t let something like a little rain keep me from doing what I promised myself I would do.- training for this 5K is going quite –rain pun-swimmingly!

Earlier this week I went to a weekly dinner with a few of my gals, we went to a place we rarely go. I did my hair and put on some heels.

I LOVE heels…I love shoes in general! in fact after I write this blog I’m trying to talk myself out of going to my favorite boutique and buying TWO new pairs I saw on Instagram. -If you read the hustle you know I am trying to save every penny for a house..or maybe something different (a curve ball came to me this morning 😉 )- but y’all these shoes are super cute and would totally vamp my wardrobe!

-GAH tangent #2-Back to dinner!

We drank some wine and talked for hours on all kinds of subjects including retrograde. -shout out Mary for educating me on the planets- We had a great time! I always leave feeling uplifted!

But before walking into dinner I was talking to my friend Jacqueline -AKA Jakie-O, AKA Jack-O-Lantern, AKA Jakieee, poor girl has so many nicknames- You guys this woman is amazing! Shes a single mom, works awful hours, is trying to keep up with fitness, build a relationship with her boyfriend AND build a business through IT WORKS. So many times  I’ve wished I had her confidence! shes been though some rough times and she is always picking herself up and moving right along!

But right now she is struggling.

Shes struggling to see her end game. shes working herself so hard that she has no time to focus on the most important thing HERSELF. I admire her so much for her determination, but as we were talking I found myself giving her advice to focusing on her!

Y’all, I’m no therapist but I do love lifting people up and as I was giving her advice, telling her shes is doing exactly what she should, but that she needs to rest, I thought THIS IS IT! this is my blog! I mean HELLO I just wrote something on the hustle! and here is an amazing woman hustling so dang hard!!

At first I struggled with writing this post because this isn’t my struggle or even my hustle, BUT I promised myself that I would use my blog to uplift those who need a little extra encouragement. My girl friends are family! Their struggles are my struggles, their victories are my victories, their hustle is. my. hustle!!!

Whenever one of my gals reaches a goal, I feel this overwhelming joy! like a mom meeting her child for the first time kind of joy. I am not a mother but I feel confident in that statement! There is nothing greater than watching someone you love thrive!

I know that Jacq -Oh look another nickname- is not the only woman struggling right now. HECK I’m struggling to figure out how to make my career dreams come true! Although I cannot relate to everything you may be going through, I can give some in site on how I like to deal with The Hustle Blues!!

  1. TRUST that you are right where you are suppose to be.
    • you only get one life! choose to live it in a way that makes you feel ALIVE! yes this is a hard season but you will get through it! nothing worth having comes easy!
    • I continually tell myself that God puts me in places for a reason, and when HE is ready I will know why.
  2. Relish in the small victories
    • #Smallvictoriesmatter
    • This could be anything from hitting those sale numbers to finally having time to cleaning out that junk drawer in the kitchen! what ever your small victory is SOAK it up girl!! –another rain pun
    • One of my small victories is packing my lunch for work! It saves me money and keeps me from eating fast food all the time!
  3. Make time for you
    • LISTEN TO ME!!! YOU. WILL. ACCOMPLISH. NOTHING. -insert me clapping after each word- if you do not make time for you!
    • ladies, our bodies are a temple! give it rest! put down your phone and read that book you’ve been looking at, watch a show on Netflix, spend some time in prayer, whatever your “you” time looks like DO IT!! I promise your business will be there in an hour!
    • One thing I love to doing is spending time alone in coffee shops! This blog has given me a reason to do just that! WHOOP!
  4. Give time to the people in your life
    • kids, husbands, boyfriends, friends….whoever
    • these people are in our lives because they love and enjoy our company, so lets give them our company!
    • every relationship takes work. like a business you have to put in the hours to see growth. you want something to change in your marriage or relationship? Feed it. give it some life. you cant expect a flower to bloom if your not watering it.
    • My friends and I are always finding new and fun things to do together!
  5. Choose happiness
    • Every now and again take a look at your life and decide what is truly making you happy.
    • Like I said you only get one life, live it to your fullest happiest potential. Maybe its you business, maybe not. Don’t spend your time watering something that is never going to make you fully bloom!
    • I am an over-thinker, so this one can be hard sometimes, but I am always trying to be positive in every aspect of my life!
    • This one is only because I LOVE dancing in my car!!!
    • Sometimes putting on an uplifting song and jamming out in your car, can do wonders for your self confidence!!!
    • Music has always been a huge part of my life! I have so many songs that bring me to tears because of the motivation I feel when I hear them! FIND THOSE SONGS FOR YOU!!

A moment ago I had to stop writing to run an errand, while I was driving I was reflecting on what I had already written and how I was going to wrap it up.

-Or if it even made sense, because sometimes my brain is super jumbled….I’m sure this will come out in my writing at some point.-

I kept thinking of how I said “this is not my struggle” but isn’t it?

At this moment I am trying to figure out how do I start my dream business? where do I begin? is my overwhelming passion a sign from God? Should I take a leap of faith? What if I fail? -Am I NUTS because all I do is question things??

I will stress myself out to a point of sadness when it comes to what I want to do with my life. I have so much drive to give others advice on how to keep going, and pursue their dreams….but am I taking my own advice?

Now I don’t know what this process will look like, or even if I’m suppose to embark on this journey I feel so strongly about, but what I do know is I believe in you! No matter where this crazy life of mine takes me I will always find way to keep encouraging those around me!

Thank you to everyone who has read so far! All your Encouraging words mean so much!! I am having so much fun writing this blog! Its forcing me to keep searching for my next inspiration! I know that while encouraging you to keep hustling through, I will find my path!

What is this dream career path you ask?

Well, that’s a story for another rainy day! 😉

Until next time caffeine queens





The Hustle

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become.

                                                                -Steve Jobs

Todays Brew: Donut shop K-Cup    Location: My desk

complete with my grocery list on a post it and a coffee stained calendar #life


So many times in my life I have felt that rush of adrenaline after a good, hot, strong cup of coffee! It makes me feel as though I could acomplish anything! And many of those times I have found myself wanting to write. (High five to me for finally doing just that!!) Coffee fuels my creativity and keeps me going on a busy day at work!

If you read my first blog “The Introduction”, you learned that another HUGE inspiration in my life are the people I’m surrounded by.  And this week I was once again reminded of why I choose to surround myself with them.

Earlier last week my friend Angela mentioned having a girls night to make vision boards. My first thought was Pinterest. I was quickly corrected when she further explained that a vision board was something you made, framed and kept in a place where you would see it everyday. A way to constantly be reminded about your goals. I LOVED THE IDEA, One it was a way to get creative with my friends and Two it would help me to visually see what I wanted to accomplish.

Angela, being the organizational queen she is, sent out a form to better help us with what should go on our board. While I was reading and filling out the questions I stated thinking of how much time I spend pinning things on Pinterest. If you are like me you spend most of your time pinning before bed. (not sure if pinning is the correct verb…but I’m going with it) I have pinned so many things on Pinterest and made so many different folders…Y’all, My name is Letha and I am a pinning whore, I’m guilty of pinning it and quitting it. How often are we truly referencing back to those pins?

Now, I understand that some of my pins are for future me. Like how I would like to design a house or what kind of wedding or baby shower could I throw for someone, (maybe myself one day, but lets not hold our breath) BUT what about all those other pins? Workout pins, saving money pins, or here’s one that really hits home…pins about how to become a better writer. It’s so easy to click something on an app when your half asleep and not think about it again. This is why when we started making our vision boards I got so inspired. I had to physically sit down and THINK about what MY VISION was. Where did I want to be next year or even a month from now? How was I going to better myself.?

As we got started on our boards, I noticed I was already half way done with mine before the other girls had even begun to glue anything down. I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN WHAT I WANT AND WHO I WANT TO BE, and if I had to guess, SO DO YOU! (I’m going to quote this again for the people in the back) “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become. ” -Steve Jobs

The last task on the vision sheet was to choose one word to describe how you want your year to go. Angela is choosing to THRIVE, (I know she will do nothing less!) and I have Chosen…to HUSTLE. (Bet you didn’t see that coming 😉 ) I am going to stop dreaming of who I want to become and start envisioning it instead! If you can see it, you can achieve it!


  • Run that 5K
  • Buy a house
  • encourage those around me
  • have more faith
  • pray more than I worry
  • learn to bake (I have always wanted to be a baker)
  • Make more time for travel

I WILL HUSTLE to be the best version of myself.

My hope for you, my fellow caffeine queens is that you do the same. What would your vision board look like? What word are you going to commit to this year? How are YOU going to better yourself and in return, those around you?

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!



Shout out to Ang for being a constant creative encouragement in my life! you are always opening my eyes to new ways for bettering myself!! And shout out to my friend Dani! She is a tech GODDESS and helped me add my social media links to my site! Go follow!!**located at the bottom of the screen**

The Introduction

“Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be”

-Carrie Bradshaw

Have you ever had one plan, and then BAM! you get hit with a major curve ball? One minute you’re gliding through life about to make a vision board with your friends..and then in an instant your reminded of how precious life really is.

For the past two years my life has been a constant reminder of how short life can be. How important it is to wake up every morning, happy and ready to face whatever life will throw at you. My curve ball came summer of 2016 when my dad, the greatest man I’ve ever know was diagnosed with cancer. A rare form of cancer that is fast spreading and hard to treat. So, for the last two years we have faced this battle, but luckily for us we have never faced it alone. (but as a christian I am constantly reminded I never face anything alone) Our family, Friends, and community all stepped up to the plate and hit every curve ball that was thrown our way. My father, an amazing man, has an incredible testimony. One that will make even the quietest of humans want to shout “praise Jesus”. And as much as I love to tell his side of the story, Ive decided it was time to create mine.

I created this blog a few days ago and had a plan of what I wanted my first entry to be. That was until tonight. Throughout this journey I have often wondered how I was going to use my experiences for something more. I want to DO more than just feel for someone walking down the same path, I want to BE more for someone, I want to be more for myself.

Tonight’s entry is not what I planned, but exactly what I hoped having a blog would do. Give me a place to express things I want to say. Give me a way to hopefully provide an encouraging word. But also a place to tell my friends how much I love them, and that I will fight for them. Just as they have done for me.

Tonight I have a friend feeling the fear and pain I have often felt. And as I drove home with tears in my eyes, hurting for their hurting, I knew what my more would be. My more will be me, my stories, my experiences and my everyday battles. I hope that my yesterday helps you with your today.

And to my girl friends (who Im pretty sure are the only ones reading this blog so far) thank you for always encouraging me and my crazy dreams. Thank you for giving me a reason to write. You will always be my inspiration. I only hope that I can encourage someone as you all have encouraged me!



P.s. May we never be to old for onsies and glitter!
