Confession Time.

I need to tell you something.
Something that may seem a little shocking.
A little weird.
And maybe even a little frightening.

{deep breath}

I used to play "Mermaids" in the pool.

And before you start saying, "Oh, Michelle, we ALL did that!"
Let me just tell you that I did this up until I was 14 years old.

Okay, fine! ......I was 16.

Not-So-Little Asian Ariel, with her human legs pressed together, flopping around the deep end of the pool, pretending she could talk and sing under water.

They were magical times and I am not ashamed.
In fact, if I had a pool right now, I would be very tempted to jump in and reminisce the days when I was extremely cool and probably really popular too...yeah.


Which brings me to my next Mermaid topic:

You all know Devon who blogs there, right?
And I'm sure you all know how awesome, gorgeous, and amazing she is, right?
Did you also know that she quit her job to follow her dreams of writing and surfing?
Pretty bad-A if you ask me.

Soooo basically, I pretended to be a mermaid the same age I got my driver's license, 
and Devon has a blog called The Mermaid Chronicles.

We're basically the same person here, people!

I kid, I kid. 
She's way cooler.

Plus! She's extending TWO free months worth of ad space over on her blog to one of my lucky readers!

Simple Schmimple.

Here's a little hello from Devon!
Hey guys, I'm Devon. My blog is called The Mermaid Chronicles. Like a crazy person, I quit my job a little over a year ago to be a professional surfer and writer. My blog covers this and other adventures with my husband as we attempt to travel the world and remodel our house on tiny paychecks. Come stop by!

Good luck!


I did it too:)
