So maybe I mentioned…

3 Feb

Today, I will not mention that I am “iced in” for the third day in a row. I will not mention that of the three days, today is the first day that I’ve changed out of my Victoria Secret flannels to put on a pair of jeans. I will not even mention that I ate three of my mom’s homemade “on top of the stove cookies” yesterday, because that was the only source of chocolate on hand. (Okay…so maybe I mentioned…)

Today, what I would really like to think about, is this:

The South Carolina vacation I took with Jordan’s family last summer…

Ah, that’s better. The sand. The water. A tan. I could really go for that right about now.

Or, I could think about how my mood today compares to this sign that Jordan bought me while we were in South Carolina:

What can I say? He knows me too well.

It’s actually very fitting, considering that today is day 7 of the 30 day challenge (my zodiac sign and how well it fits my personality). If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am in fact a Cancer, represented by the crab. Jordan didn’t buy me that sign for astrological reasons though. He bought it because I may or may not have the tendency to be in a “crabby” mood quite often every so often. Don’t worry, I was humored by the gift :).

Turns out, I may be able to blame that wonderful trait of mine on the zodiac. If you’re not familiar with the traits of a Cancer, here are a few:

Cancer Positive Traits

Loving and Emotional
Shrewd and cautious
Sensitive and nurturing
Intuitive as well as imaginative
Sympathetic and Protective

Cancer Negative Traits

Indecisive and moody
Over-emotional and sensitive
Clinging and possessive


I’ll just get right to the point; these characteristics fit me to a T. If the “Crabby” sign that Jordan bought me doesn’t say it all, these traits do. Yes, I tend to be moody and over-emotional, but it’s only because I’m sensitive ;). I bet I just sound like a charm right now, huh?

It’s okay. He still loves me 🙂

I don’t consider myself possessive or clingy. I enjoy my alone time (as in, watching TV or having the kitchen to myself so I can bake), so being too attached to someone is not something that interests me. Although, I have to admit that I am the jealous type. I guess that characteristic would fit into this category?

As far as my positive traits go, I consider myself nurturing and loving. The majority of my part-time jobs have been in childcare, and I think my nurturing side is brought out in those environments. I am also protective, as I worry about my younger sisters a lot (they may not enjoy this trait so much).

I would also have to agree that I am very intuitive. I usually get a gut feeling, good or bad, and make decisions based on it. Finally, I am definitely cautious. Yesterday I mentioned that I don’t like riding rollercoasters , but I worry about many other things too. I’m the friend that makes sure everyone has their seat belt buckled before we back down the driveway. You’ve gotta love the cautious friend 😉

So that’s me, a Cancer to a T.

I will leave you with one last warm weather photo…

Harbor Island, SC

Is it spring yet?

Do any of the Cancer traits describe you? What’s your opinion of zodiac signs?

    Actually, a lot of the positive traits of Cancer suit me, which is interesting as I’ve often felt that my own star sign’s characteristics aren’t too correct. I probably have to admit to the over-emotional bit at times too though 😛

      Maybe being over-emotional just comes along with being a girl? I blame it on hormones… 😉

    I can definitely be indecisive and moody!

    My hubby is a cancer and he and I are supposedly a perfect match since I’m a taurus. WE definitely balance each other out! He is super loving and nuturing…little bit of a home body and values family above all else. Gotta love him. Ps. I have the same dress as you in that last pic! You are making me want summer here now!

      Really? I love that dress! Just thought I’d do some wishful thinking, hoping that summer would be here sooner 🙂
