is it true...

Or maybe a better response would be, "What did you do?"

"Why did you do that?"

"Why so dark?"

"You're going back tomorrow and getting highlights, right?"

"You know, I like blondes."

Or the classic, "Once you black... {you know the rest}"

Well, it's actually called "Fudge Brownie" by Paul Mitchelle.

Here's what I did last week:



Forgive the goofy look on my face.  I decided that it was better not to try and do a fake smile or take a straight on picture at my desk.  The more artsy, don't-look-at-the-camera shot was better.

Also, please notice my cowl neck that I purchased at the local craft show on Saturday.  It was $5.00!!!!!!!!  I was looking at buying one at J. Crew outlet and on etsy but both were in the $30-$40 range!!!  What a bargin!  I was so excited for thie purchased that I asked this older woman for her phone number so I could have her do some custome orders for christmas!

I went brunette for the first time in late July. I was surprised that I didn't get many good compliments. Everyone (including my husband!) wanted me to go back to blonde. They all got their wish last week. I'm back to blonde.

Yours looks great though. And I love the scarf . . . especially the price!

Win on both the hair and the scarf! Both very pretty. I think new hair color is fun - especially if it's dramatic. I don't have the guts to go dramatic anymore - I'm a fuddy duddy. The most I'll do is slight highlights. I saw a girl at the hair salon just last night that had purple/reddish highlights - I was envious!

I like it! and I have been brunette my whole life, except once I allowed my colorist to keep going lighter until I was blond. Wouldn't you know....my husband saw a photo of that and said, oh why don't you do that again....men.

I love dark hair. Yes, I am biased. And any color with fudge and brownie in the name has to be awesomer!!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
