I Am My Mother’s Child

Uncategorized

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 😉

Check out the other deals here

  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. Krystal says:

    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.

  4. Jenn Wade says:

    Girl – I just totally went and grabbed this myself after reading your blog! And I think I may need to go back and scope out some Real Simple and Cooking Light too! Ha. You rock – thanks for sharing. I'm going to share the love on my blog too…

  5. Lulu in D.C. says:

    LOVE Southern Living…great recipes and decorating. My mom gave it to me as a gift when I moved out of my parent's house. I love it!

  6. Nicole-Lynn says:

    Great deal. I love that magazine too. 🙂

  7. leigh ashley says:

    don't worry… i am my mother too. i always said it wouldn't happen, but now that it is, i really don't mind!! 🙂

  8. Alee says:

    This is awesome. I agree with pp that after a while, cosmo doesn't seem to really offer anything new. Congrats on your new subscriptions!

  9. Haha. I guess we have to grow up sometime 😉

  10. Squirmy says:

    I've started buying home mags over Cosmo and stuff like that too! Never thought I'd do that, scary!

  11. Brown Girl says:

    Haha, join the club. The more I try not to be like my mom, the more I am! ugh.

  12. Tatum-LeTard says:

    LOVE Southern Living. Perfect for us southern, classy gals!

  13. LG says:

    Girl now that you are a home owner you must get SL! And also Real Simple!!
    People Stylewatch is my only girly magazine anymore!

  14. Kerbi says:

    I love it! I can't stop myself from getting cooking and decorating magazines!

  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!

  16. Ashley says:

    My mom subscribes to like 30 home decor type magazines–seriously! Lucky for me, she gives them all to me when she is done!
