For me it is loving the fact that I can dress up and feel good. Put on heels and feel a little taller. Get a haircut and feel like a new woman with a whole different attitude. Clean like crazy when I am mad and snuggle when I am sick. That is what I love about being a woman.

Man - Ang - you rock! I went back through some older posts today of my own... and then I stopped and thought - WOW! I wrote that! and what I am linking and posting here - pretty much sums up how I am feeling even today! Happy Tuesday!

my favorite quote of all time is "well behaved women seldom make history" by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. If that isn't girl power, then I don't know what is!

can't wait to put something together for this.

For me I depise putting on heels and dressing up even though I mentally feel better when I do, physically I hate it.

I love that being a woman makes me a MOM and I love being a mom to my kiddos!

What a great theme :) My own quote is "being a woman is being able to cope with being a woman"

Liz said...

Girl power is definately my girl friends. I love the fact that I count on my girlfriends for help fixing the dryer and my boyfriends for fashion advice.

I love women quotes, they are often empowering and inspiring at the same time. One of my favorite quotes of all time is:
“If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these together ought to be able to turn it back and get it right side up again”[Sojourner Truth]

Elizabeth said...

We are like tea bags whose strength comes out when we're put in hot water. Nancy Reagan

I really like this quote a lot!

"You can't save a damsel if she loves her distress."

I like this quote, because I think part of being a woman is the ability to multitask!

"Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels." Ann Richards, former Texas Governor
