the "curl down"

The other day, I was thinking, "there has got to be something else that I can do with my hair!  AND if I don't figure it out soon, I'm going to cut it off again.

Remember in 2006, I went from hair like this...



To about this length, however the correct picture is still in hiding.  For now this will work...




Don't worry though, folks.  I'm not cutting my hair, I'm just thinking about it.

Honestly though, I don't think that I would ACTUALLY cut it at this point, especially since I haven't reached my goal yet, with the length.  Still a few more inches yet and we'll be there...

So anyway, when I was really talking myself out of cutting it a few weeks ago, I knew there would HAVE to be something out there to help me!

Then....... Erin posted this link.

That lead me to this WONDERFUL link.

And now, I LOVE MY HAIR and the CURL DOWN look!

This was my second attempt at it today and yesterday, it looked better.  But just to prove to you that I did it and it looks great, well almost great, I'm posting a picture of it...


Yes, that's straight from my phone... what do you want from me?

And there you have it, a new way to do my hair that I love and for that I'm thinking about keeping my length and accomplishing my goal.  Maybe another 9 to 12 inches.  We'll see...

Happy Friday!

Hey I'm trying this method on my previousally straight hair for health and natural product. Check out naturallycurly.com or the curly girl method. It's doing wonders for my hair and promoting healthy growth!

That's so cute! My hair wouldn't hold a curl if my life depended on it, although I just chopped mine all off anyways so it doesn't matter!

I love this! Beautiful. Wish I had time to play with mine....it's SO long and just blah.
SO pretty!

I am a GIGANTIC fan of hot rollers. (Yep, a la 1992.) Bottom line is that if you twist your hair around them, and just put them in the bottom portion of your hair, they look like these curl-downs you're creating. And, they take 1/2 the time.

Your hair looks great.

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 …
