It's just hair :)

Like most women my hair, along with myself has changed over the years.  I love looking at old pictures of my hair and I thought you would too!
I have always loved my pigtails!

 My friends and I rented a limo for my 32nd B-day, that was a really great night!
 Plenty of pretty girls and lots of booze.

 This was my first apartment ever, I loved that place because it was all mine.
Apparently I also used to be a big fan of showing off my tummy, too old and too cold to do that now :)
 But I'll never be too old for color :)


 Life is better lived in COLOR!
How about you?  How often do you change up your hair?

Winter does not have to be colorless

It has been so cold and gray lately that I can barely stand to go outside but when I do I want those around me to squint as I approach.

I do love pink and green!


This green dress was a recent find for $3!  Necklace made by moi!

Chris was happily surprised and thankful that all my BG's (Blogger Girls, that's our club name) wished him a happy birthday.  We had a nice night in, I made his favorite pizza pepperoni with black olives and a yummy salad and stocked up the freezer with all his favorite dark chocolates.  We are both Sagittarians and enjoy that our Birthdays are only a week apart. Now I'm getting excited about my Birthday because  we will be flying out to San Diego, CA to visit my family who I miss dearly this time of year!

Birds and boobs

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments on my last post, you guys make me feel so loved!  Thanksgiving went off without a hitch, I only snapped a few pictures because I was busy playing hostess.  This is what I wore.
Nicole Miller dress $6 :)
I think I was stressing him out a bit.

I do love the back!
This is some of what we ate.  Here is my bird.
 Kaisa brought over a smoked bird, that was GOOD!
and she also baked some pies!
So the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday and I headed to the mall to do some X-mas shopping.  It was crazy!  It took me about 30 minutes to find a parking spot and once inside I was overwhelmed by all the people.  Since my Birthday is next week I usually head to Victoria's Secret to spoil myself.  Do you know that I have been wearing the wrong size bra for years?!?!?!?!  I know huh!  I thought I was a 36 D but I'm really a 34 DD.  It's amazing how much better the right size bra makes you feel.  So check out what I got.





Having these pretties on under my clothes makes me feel that much more confident! My bobbies are really happy :)  and so am I!  They were all buy one get one half off.

One last really important thing is that today is Chris's Birthday!  Happy Birthday honey!  I look forward to celebrating every single one of them with you!

I think I may have been drinking a bit :)

I want to thank you for letting me be myself, again!

I can't stand how commercialized holidays are these days.  I believe holidays are whatever you make them into.  To me, Thanksgiving is a time to get together with family and friends, eat and drink way too much and reflect on all I have to be thankful for.

1) Top of the list is my health. This year I have felt better than I have in the last 5 years, that is pretty friggin special.


  2) I have family and friends who love me very much and are always there for me.
My sister and I with the man who raised me, Jim. The shit he has put up with!
Here is me and my Dad at my wedding.
My nephews :)
My BFF Kristi.
Her sweet daughter Madison, who I just adore.
Ron and Christopher, dear friends!
 Cathy first friend I ever made in Oregon!
Me and Keagan digging to China.
 My nieces who I miss very much!
My mother-in-law Patrice and her sister Aunt Norah
Kathi, Alex and Brianna they make me happy.
 My niece Haylen who I hope to have more adventures with!
Chris, the man who makes life worth living!

My momma and sister, they get me.

3) I made new friendships through my blog and I hope with some time that I can get to know these very special women better.  I feel lucky to have found my tribe.

4) I still have a job that I dig, for the most part, and I still get out of it what I put in and I like how that makes me feel.

5) I've had a creative year filled with new projects and new challenges.










6) I have animals who love me unconditionally and bring me a lot of happiness.

Chris is copying Peetee's zen like state!


I'm cooking a 18 lb. bird tonight and tomorrow we feast!  I hope to have some pictures for you when I return next week.  Much love to all of you and thanks so much for giving my blog a lil visit and for giving me so much love.  XOXO!
