Life and Times of a Mommy(:

What. Have. I. Done?!?!?!

So everyone remembers The Great Hair Catastrophe right? Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell……. It has happened again. Yes. You read that right. I have had another Great Hair Catastrophe. And I’m honestly not sure which is worse… Everyone tells me that this one is not that bad, but I absolutely hate it.. Like heat from the 7th circle of hell… (That’s a place right? I mean I’ve never read Daunte’s inferno or anything like that… So I’m not sur…) But here’s the story.

I had this super bright (no sarcasam there I swear) idea that I would donate ten inches to Locks of Love. This one charity that I truly love hearing about. I’ve been growing my hair out for over a year now. Probably about a year a half.

This is what I started with..

This is what I started with..

My hair was down to about the middle of my back. I went in to my hair stylist on Valentine’s day and decided it was time to cut it off. I had been playing around with the idea for a while because I have extremely thick hair. So I had finally made the decision to chop it off. Measured it, and it was just over 10 inches. (Which is how much you have to 10 inches to donate.)

So the stylist set to cutting. And cutting. And cutting. Aaaaaaaaaaand cutting. And then the styling started… Don’t get me wrong I love my stylist. She’s great. She did a great job when she died my hair. But I think we took a little too much off when we cut it… Because now I hate it. Like I feel like I just stepped out of the 1920s and I should be wearing a flapper dress with my boobs tapped down, sitting in a basement turned speakeasy drinking illegally made moonshine.

I’m not sure if it was because styled it with a straightener and the curls where just massive but I’m still waiting to fall in love with my new cut… Guess it will just have to grow on me.. (Insert drum and symbols and my horribly lame pun..)

The End is Nigh!!!

Actually, it’s here. But I’ve always wanted to say that!!! So there ya go!! This is our last day, I apologize that it took so long to get here, but it is here.

Day Thirty. Write a letter telling yourself everything you love about yourself. (This will probably be a short letter considering my upsetness. But, it’s probably just what I need!)

Dear self,

Oh, how I love you. Let me count the ways. Your hair, your smile, your eyes, your intelligence, your hair….. Ok, seriously, bro. You are awesome. Like FRIGGIN FANTASTICALLY AMAZINGLY awesome. And don’t forget it!! Don’t argue with me either, because I know what I’m talking about. I’m you soooo duh. I’m right. Done.

Fanta-stick. Fantastic. Hee hee hee (:

Fanta-stick. Fantastic. Hee hee hee (:

So. The ways you are amazing you ask? Well. Your smart for one. You may not be that street smart, but you have an amazing capacity to retain useless information. It’s like, your specialty. You may be a little dense sometimes and have your blonde moments (I blame all the hair dye and chemicals), but they are some pretty funny ones sometimes. And you play off getting embarrassed pretty well! I mean, you have enough practice at it!

Second way that you are amazing? Well I guess it’s kind of thing that’s awesome about you. That would be your hair. Yeah it’s a little short right now and there’s this weird thing going one with this little mohawk looking thing going down your part. And those weird pieces of hair in your bangs that tend to stick straight up and not lay down right. But, your hair holds color like no other! I mean it doesn’t fade that bad and looks amazing in just about any dark color. And, it used to grow like crazy!!! (Not so much anymore, not sure why but still.) I mean, before Little Man, you had trim your bangs every couple of weeks or so so they wouldn’t be all wird lookin!

blueeyes

Third. Giiiiiiiiiiiirl!! Dem eyes!!! They change with what you wear and the eye shadow you wear. Yesterday they were green because you wore green eye shadow. Today they were a grayish because of the smoky eye you did. Throw on a bright or dark blue and look out baby! They are like BAM!!!! blue. So how awesome is that?! It is a tad annoying when they randomly change in the middle of the day and you have a plan for them to be one color all day and then they don’t cooperate. That’s a tad annoying.

Fourth, baby, your smile. Girl, your smile can light up a room. You may not like it, but other people love to see it. It makes people smile. Your smile can cheer so many  people up. It was of little use this weekend, sadly, but just about any other time, it works. Sparkly and bright. So don’t ever forget that.

Now, I know you can’t do all those crazy, weird styles that look so awesome on everyone else. But girl. You can pull off some crazy eyeshadow that not many people can! And as long as you keep your balance in them, you can wear just about any heel. And, your ass looks pretty great in jeans!! Gorgeous!!! And sweetie, you can dance and your occasionally good. But it’s so much more fun to dance like an idiot! And, also, the bestsest thing ever about you, is your ability to make any awkward situation funny, or even more embarrassing. Oh, and your humor. What little sense you do have is pretty great.

So when you get down on yourself just come back to this and read it. And feel better about yourself love!!

Love,

Me (you….yourself)

 

Now I challenge you to write your own letter like this. Tell yourself everything you love about yourself.

Now, for the hair styles. I guess there is a salon in Texas called Dass salon and spa. So I guess people where look up them? As for the Asian styles, can’t help ya there guys.. Sorry.

Category Two. In which we have daddy’s, best friends, and some awkward moments.

daddy girls moms live
i’m only 11 daddy
daddy’s girl
best friends
best friends bilder
best friends pictures

First off, it builder. Spelled with a u. Second, why do you need a best friend builder?! Best friends are made over a life time. Yeah you can strengthen the relationship by getting to know each other but I don’t know what a best friend builder will do. Have you learned to spell builder yet?

I don’t know if the world has made me think the worst or what, but I don’t know want to know what the I’m only 11 one is about. And moms live? What is that?! Geez…

Category Three. In which we have everything else.

bubbles
search term volume
will arkids pay for ear nose throat
spring images
xdanigirl wordpress
sexy man candy pics

First. Bubbles are fun. Bubbles are nice. Who doesn’t like bubbles?! Bubbles and spring images seem like the would go together. Right? Second. Someone apparently likes reading about search terms. Because they found my blog! Third. Heaven knows I talk about sexy man candy enough that SOMEONE should find my blog because of it.

Someone was actually looking for my WordPress account, guys!! Look!! I’m famous!! Okay no not really but I can dream.

Will ArKids pay for ear, nose, and throat? Yes, yes they will. IF you have a referral from your doctor. If the original referral has expired, you will need to get another one. If you have changed doctors since the referral expired, you will need to let your doctor know and go to their office and have  check up and let them issue another referral. If you do not have a referral you will have to pay for the visit your self. It will be an out-freaking-rageous price for whatever you need done. So, I suggest you do everything in your power to get a referral. 

 

And there ya go. There are our search terms for the month of May! Come back next month for more fun and awkwardness!!

Let’s Get Down to Business!!!

First off. I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to all those lovely mommies out there!! Hope you ladies all had a wonderful day!! Second off we are going to play catch up again. Sorry guys. I was having a rough weekend. But we are back on track now!! So here we go!

Day Ten. This one is someone that you wish you had never met or someone you need to let go. I don’t really wish I hadn’t met anyone or need to let anyone go. This kind of ties into the whole no regrets thing. Everyone that has been in my life has made me the person I am today.

Day Eleven. Something people seem to compliment you the most on. Hmm. I’m gonna have to say my eyes. While they annoy me, everyone else loves my eyes. It annoys me that they can never, ever, ever pick a color. Everyone else thinks it is so amazing that they change colors so much. Also, I get a million compliments on my hair. It annoys me though because it’s straight as a board and more often than not it doesn’t cooperate.

This is a good example of what mine do.

Day Twelve. Something you never get complimented on. I honestly don’t get the many compliments on my smile. And I’m a very smiley person. I smile constantly. Plus, being a receptionist it’s part of the job. But yeah, hardly any compliments on my smile.

I wish I could wear lipstick this color!! It's gorgeous!!

Day Two!

Okay guys. We are on Day Two. Something you love about yourself. Hmm. Well That’s a tie between a lot of things… My hair, my eyes, and my personality.

My hair. When it’s long, it’s a glorious almost perfectly straight mass of chocolate brown that get highlights in it if I’m outside too long in the summer. When I curl it, oh my goodness, guys. Its GLORIOUS!!! It’s AMAZING!!! I used to have to put half of a huge can of hairspray in it to keep the curls, then it was all crunchy and stiff. Then. I curled it and just left it alone. It was amazing!! I had soft, beautiful, long curls! And when I combed/brushed them out? Hello porn star waves!! (Oh lord… I can just see the interesting search terms piling up now…) But now that it’s short…. I can either flip the ends under or let it do it’s own thing. Which  results in hair going EVERYWHERE. I have a mini Mohawk f baby hairs along my part that stand straight up and the ends go out, under, up, to the left, and to the right. I’m telling you guys, everywhere. I want my long hair back…

My hair was not this red. But it look like this...kinda...

My eyes. Now these babies. I have never seen eyes so finicky in my life. The can go from blue, to green, to gray, to blue/green, to blue/gray, to greenish/blue, to gray with a hint of blue. In a day. It’s so annoying. Although, on the plus side, I can wear just about any color eye shadow and look ahhh-mazing!!  I’m telling you guys. It’s great. Do a silver shadow on the lid, with a light white under the brow, a liner of dark blue or black, and some thick black eyelashes and you are good for a night out on the town, dinner and a movie, or just a day at work!!

Not my eyes but pretty ones (:

Not my eyes but pretty ones (:

My personality.  Well. You guys have seen enough of it to know that it is a VERY bubbly thing! Amirite?! Amirite? I mean, there are times when it fluxes, but for the most part, I’m a super bubbly, fun person!! And I’m bright!! Like bright colors and high lighters!!

BUBBLES!!!!

BUBBLES!!!!

One last thing guys!! It’s SNOWED!! In May. In Arkansas!! I’m pretty sure this means hell has frozen over too!! Like the night before last I was laying in bed in a t shirt and undies about to die because I couldn’t sleep because I was so hot!! Then last night I was in sweat pants and socks, under a thick fleece blanket, cuddled up to my heater of a husband!! It was crazy!! Two nights ago I was sleeping with the windows open!! It’s craziness, I tell you, CRAZINESS!!! 

So how’s the weather were you guys are?!     (Guys be glad I edited this first and didn’t just post it.. My typing skills aren’t worth crap today! And guess what?! It’s FRIDAY!!!       WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!)

The Great Hair Catastrophe

So I was over on GoJulesGo’s blog earlier today, and I read about her hair catastrophe. I commented about my own hair catastrophe, and she suggested I tell you, most loyal readers. And since I am totally stumped on what to write about, I thought might as well! (I totally just realized there are a ton of ands in this paragraph…)

Note: None of the pictures in this post are of me. I have no pictures of the events in which I’m about to tell you. They were all (thankfully!) burned in a fire when my house burned down. (I didn’t burn them I swear! I will tell all about the fire some other time. I assure you, you will like this story MUCH better!!)

In the third grade I decided I wanted a perm. I decided this because my mom got perms constantly. She always had curly hair. She naturally straight-as-a-board hair, which she cursed me with lovingly passed on to me. I convinced her to let me get my hair permed. Now, my mother thought tight curl perm would look good. You would think that with her getting a zillion and a half perms she would know better than to put a tight curl perm in a 10 year old’s shoulder length hair, right? WRONG!!!

My hair stylist (who was my mom’s best friend’s aunt) agreed that it would look okay. When she was done she told me to spray some stuff (I don’t really remember what it was but it was essentially watered down hairspray) and a pic (pick?), not a brush, to fix my hair. So. That’s what I did.

What it should have looked like...

What it should have looked like…

On picture day, I decided to let my friend fix my hair. Bad idea! (You can see what’s coming can’t you?) She only did one side of my hair. Now, keep in mind the the more you pic (pick?) a perm the bigger it gets. So. One side of my hair stood out a good foot from my head. The other side? Flat. Well, I mean, not totally flat, but close enough. It definitely wasn’t as big as the other side of my hair. (Alright… I might have exaggerated just a little. It was more like 6 inches. But either way, it was still MASSIVE!!! And I looked like a deranged poodle.) My hair took up basically the whole picture. Needless to say, not my best picture day…

What my hair looked like....almost.... Add a LOT more body

What about you guys? Any crazy hair stories? Parents have your kids or their friends ever tried to fix their own/each other’s/ your hair?
