Fabulous $6 Accessories!

I have officially become an Independent Consultant for Paparazzi Accessories!!! Love, love, love it!

The best part!? Only $6 each! Which, to accommodate my math skills, includes tax!

I also, in turn, have learned how to spell paparazzi ;-)

A Haircut Could Change the World.

It could change MY world anyway... I am in desperate need of a haircut. I feel it deep in my soul, I need change. Don't you just love to get a haircut?... I am currently unemployed, it doesn't suit me well. I am feeling very unprodutive. I have watched more TV in the last 3 weeks then I have in the last year. I have also cooked more meals in the last 3 weeks then I have in the last year, although my fiance' loves it. I spend entirely too much time at the grocery store, just to get out of the house. The highlight of my day was saving $20 with coupons! Well, it is pretty excciting actually... My handsome man came home from work last week and complimented me on my lovely curled hair and then asked where the heck I went... "oh, um, the grocery store actually..."

My Daughter

As I sat in my chair with a blank "blogger" screen wondering what in the world I should be writing about my daughter looked over my shoulder and asked what I was making. She excitedly told me I should blog about kids! I am hardly an expert on kids, I really barely got by raising her as a struggling, single parent for the the last 12 years. So, I of coarse giggled and asked her what about kids. She said "breastfeeding! Because you always tell people they should breastfeed because it's healthier!" Which I haven't done in... about 11 years. But, I love her enthusiasm and support and I sure am glad she listens to me when I get on my "soapbox" about all the topics I am passionate about. And then I think about what kind of adult she will grow up to be...

La la la la!

La la la la! I'M ENGAGED!!! La la la la! (to the tune of PeeWee Hermans "Connect the Dots")

Shock, joy & happiness!!

I can't stop staring at my ring and smiling.

I loved seeing my big, burly, tattoo covered, handsome man on his knees, all nervous, asking me to marry him!

I dance around the house and call him my Fiance'.

Big Blonde Texas

I live in Texas. I am a brunette. It suits me, I have green eyes and almost olive skin. Blondes are a dime a dozen in Texas, although not real blondes. I like to call them "bottle blondes." I go to parties with my native Texan man and I am the ony brunette there! Man, I wish I was a hair stylist, I would make a killin', I mean really! But, I do benefit from this, I stand out. I am different and I like it!
