To laugh at yourself, is to LOVE yourself.

If you can’t laugh at yourself… call me, I’ll do it.


do you know that feeling when someone you don’t know starts walking towards you, waving, and smiling; so you wave back frantically, smiling back…only for them to look at you weirdly and go hug the person behind you?

If your answer is yes, then you will fit in nicely here.

I don’t know why you are here but I feel the need to say that a lesson that I have continually learned over the course of my life is that what works for me might not always work for you. That being said, my goal for this blog is to get you to TRY, to try and take the first step in finding who you are so that you can be the best version of yourself.

So many expectations are put on us whether it be from family/friends, your job, Mom/Dad guilt, marriage, SOCIAL MEDIA , etc. It’s insane what we put on ourselves. It’s insane how we can feel so alone in a world that’s never been more connected. It’s time to let go friend.

I have learned as I have “matured” that being my true self can be challenging. My life feels nuts most of the time and I spend most of it roaming around trying to just figure out what the crap is going on?

  • Am I supposed to say this?
  • Am I already supposed to know how to do that?
  • What qualifies me as a grown up?
  • Am I a real women if I have never bought a bra from Victoria Secret?
  • Can I hug you?
  • Am I allowed to laugh at my own jokes?
  • How awkward can I make this situation?
  • Sex… (You’re Welcome)
  • Probably shouldn’t let my kids listen to “Baby Got Back” because I think i’m super cool for knowing it all?
  • Why does my husband have a whole bag of random cords?
  • Am I as strong as I think I am?
  • Am I loved (Heavy)?
  • Am I worth it?

I don’t have it all figured out, but being honest that I don’t is somehow one of the most freeing moments of my life.

Embracing my “imperfections” has given me the ability to laugh at myself. To be quite honest, embracing my “imperfections” has given me the ability to love myself.

So, here goes.


My name is Charly Rowe, and YES, I am a Woman. (Names can be decieving)

I’m a Christian. My faith is the utmost crucial part of who I am. I want to be honest about my life as a Christian Women because like everything else in life…It’s awesome but also extremley hard.

You might have seen that I’m a fan of crocheting which you will here more about. I’m sure of it.

I love listening to all genres of Music (Elvis Presley is my go to), my orange record player is an essential piece in my house, being outside is freedom to me, I am very fond of my tan Jeep Wrangler, I follow all things NASA and when I grow up: I want to be an astronaut, Penguins are my favorite animal: Though I relate more to a raccoon, I cry every-time I watch Million Dollar Baby, Robin Williams is my favorite actor, I love Musicals, I have ADHD, I only wear socks with shoes when I go to work, I have gas bubbles so large in my abdomen that they can be seen on an XRAY (sexy), I wear clinical strength deodorant, I have always hated having boobs…like really, The Wolverine is my favorite superhero, I hate drinking through straws, I quote The Grinch & Austin Powers on daily basis, Garage Sales and Goodwill are where it’s at, I go through almost 3 bottles of orange juice in a week, I am a phenomenal Skater, I have a really hard time taking serious pictures of myself, I would eat cereal every meal if I could, I love my family with the fire of 1,000 suns, I have been awkward most of my life, and I can keep going but I will leave a little mystery for you. Haha

Coach Rowe

I am the Wife to a Gorgeous man, he loves Jesus, Phenomenal Dad, “Random Fact Guy”, history nerd, has more energy than a chihuahua on crack cocaine, natural leader, phenomenal lover, cancer survivor, doesn’t know a stranger, becomes a huge douche when he is competing (we aren’t allowed to be on opposite teams anymore), & is a spectacular Texas HS Teacher/ Football/ Powerlifting Coach. We have been through a lot but he is my best friend and I have loved him since the day I met him.

My Baby Babes

This is my favorite part. I am the Mama to 2 amazing kids. They are literally the absolute best thing that I will ever do with my life. I am a firm believer that I am so unworthy of being their mother but I do try my best to live up to what they deserve. They are everything that is beautiful in this world, they are always dirty, they always make me laugh, their eyes are full of adventure, so strong willed, cuddly, & perfect. I have no idea what I’m doing half the time but they give me strength every day. They are everything to me.

Well, that’s me in a nutshell guys. Ha! Hope you had a good time.

What’s one thing in your life that you need to start laughing about in order to love yourself?

I would love to hear from you!


Godspeed and Love,

The Irish Tulip

  1. Congratulations on your new blog Charly. I enjoyed your first post and look forward to many more.

    I see a lot of you in my younger self. And from one awkward woman to another, I’ve never bought a bra, or anything, at Victoria Secret either, but I’m pretty sure I’m a real woman. 😉
