10 Reasons I LOVE Being a Girl (or Woman, if you will)

Happy International Women's Week! I didn't even know that this existed until Stasha talked about it on her Listicles post. We can list anything having to do with women, so I thought I would list:

10 Things I LOVE about Being a Girl (or Woman but I feel wierd calling myself that, I don't know why)
Me at my girliest; our wedding day.

1. Shoes.
Once I told my husband that I felt bad for him that his shoe choices were so limited. After all, I have 30 pairs, he has 3. He told me not to feel bad, that the only thing that bothers him is that I leave those 30 pairs on the floor.

2. Makeup.
I'll be honest, I love eyeliner and mascara and eyelash curlers. However, I also love the option of not wearing those things.

3. Being a mom.
I think being a mom is such a great thing about womanhood. I LOVE being a mom. Only women can be moms and I think it's an awesome part of life.

4. Crying.
When the occasion strikes, I will cry or get weepy. Matt just shakes his head but I know on the inside he's jealous that Grey's Anatomy doesn't make him cry every single time we watch it.

5. Dresses.
I love a good dress you guys. Long, short, doesn't matter. I like a nice breeze down there and think men would actually enjoy it too.

6. Lotions and smelling good.
I love a good moisturizer and I love different perfumes. Matt has to borrow my lotion for dry skin and he only has one kind of cologne (it is a winner though).

7. Fun hair.
I love dying my hair and cutting it and styling it differently. Do I style it every day? No, but when the mood strikes it's quite nice.

8. Accessorizing.
Necklaces, earrings, belts, scarves, bracelets...I love them all!

9. Girlfriends
I love hanging out with my girlfriends.  Each time we get together we do such girly forever at a restaurants, get manicures, go shopping.  I so enjoy my girlfriends.

10. Power of choice.
The thing is, I sound like a girly girl after this post, and on some days I am. Some days, I'm not. The great thing about women today is that we can choose to be the person we want to be, instead of having society dictate it for us.

I love everything on your list! You really summed up my experience, at least :)

I love this list! Shoes, accessories and being a mom? Yeah. I wouldn't want to be a man that's for sure. Well, maybe just for a day. So I didn't have to worry about calories and wheather or not my jeans make me look fat.

Also? I'd add breastfeeding to this list. It's such an amazing experience, I'm actually sorry that my hubby couldn't experience it.

I am SO IN LOVE with your list!!! I couldn't have said those things better myself. That sums up my view in a pretty little package. Thank you, and happy Monday!

You found all the best reasons for being a girl. must say #10 is the best bit. So glad that all this is now a choice. So glad women before us burned those bras :)

I love #10. It's great that we have a choice and can be who we want to be!
Girly or not so girly.

Sometimes I think I'm not very good at being a girl because I'm not a girly girl (no makeup, no jewelry, very little fashion sense)...but I do love being a mom!

I could not agree more with your list! My husband always says he can't wait for the day kilts come back in style because he wants to feel that breeze between his legs too. ;) I told him I wouldn't be holding my breath for that to happen.

Totally love your list...and tonight I may raise a beer to it while in jean and chucks or I may raise a martini while in red stilettos....kinda depends on where Irishman takes me for dinner. I KNOW I will exert my decision to not cook :O)
