I Am My Mother's Child

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Just when I think I am my own woman and try to venture away from turning into my lovely, wonderful Mother, I am reminded today that no, Natasha, you are the miniature version of your Mom Tina, and you will continue to do the exact things she does... 
I venture to Amazon and take notice of today's deals--magazines specifically, and gasp when I see an offer for a 2-year subscription of Cosmospolitan Southern Living for a mere $15--yes I gave in and my favorite southern/decor/recipe magazine will be arriving at my doorstep in a few short weeks. Sadly, it seems I am venturing away from my old favorites: Glamour, Marie Claire, and People, and I have moved on to all things home decor and food.
Wow, I am officially getting old ;)

  1. I feel ya I canceled my Cosmo and just started subscribing to Real Simple magazine among others. It's fun though I enjoy all my house magazines.

  2. I feel ya! I usually read Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living and Cooking Light! I feel like after a decade of Cosmo reading, I think I've learned all the *tips and tricks!* =)

  3. You crack me up. I have walked in these same shoes. I have more of an interest in BHG and This Old House than Glamour and Cosmo. I'm going to say we're getting more sophisticated.

  15. I can totally relate to this! Both of my grandmas and my mom have had Southern Living subscriptions for years. I never paid attention to their Southern Living collection until about 2 years ago and now I'm obsessed!
