Hair Orgasm? Yes Please.

I've been on a hair journey over the last 9 months and it's been a difficult one.

You see, I've been in a hair relationship with Christeena at Joy's for almost 10 years. With my work location changing, nail appointments, children, and life in general I thought I should find someone closer to work to help with the stress.

WRONG.

I went blonde, it took like 3 times to color it. Then it all died. I wanted it to grow out, but the funny thing about hair is when you piss it off..it doesn't grow..it quits and falls out. Right outcha head!!


So I went to another hair stylist..my favorite part of getting my hair done is the style that comes after. Did she do it? Nope. Said 'Not sure how you like it styled, so you can use my stuff to get ready'. This was at 7:30 am and I had to be to work at 8 am.

Once again, I tried a new person. This time, after being in the chair for 5 minutes she announced to me she had two uterus's (is that even a word meant to be plural?)...this can't be a good sign. The color was alright and then it happened. She got out the RAZOR. After I told her I wanted to GROW my hair OUT...like still attached to my head.

I watched her slice through my weak hair, my poor dead, pissed off hair. I should have known someone with two uteruses wouldn't know how to do my hair.

So...I waited for Christeena to get back from maternity leave and begged for an appointment. (Ok, I called and booked one, but begged sounded more dramatic)

I gave her a big hug and was so excited that I didn't have to say what color, instructions on how to cut it and I knew the hair style would be JUST what I wanted. It was fun to catch up and I seriously can tell her anything. She's my therapist most times. Sometimes I'm so content getting my hair done I absentmindedly hum to myself. I'm not sure why..it's always been something I do when I'm in thought or just plain relaxed. (Don't judge)

I decided my hair needed to be dark again to get some shine back in it while I'm growing out the hair massacre from the twin uterus lady. Once it was all said and done, Christeena whipped my chair around for me to see the final project!

As I gazed into the mirror, all I could think of to do was look into my loving friend, therapist and solemate of hair care eyes and say....

'I just had a hair orgasm.'

That's right folks, I'll be here all week!!

It must be the feather

I went out with my girlies to celebrate Morgan's entry into the Dirty Thirty club...it was a blast!

We headed to Chili's for some drinks, dinner.

All the requirements for a great GNO were there


  1. Lots of laughter

  2. Drinks

  3. Inappropriate comments about other people

  4. Laughter

  5. Drinks

  6. Food

  7. Dessert

  8. More inappropriate comments

  9. Drinks

While at dinner when I ordered some of #2,5,9 on the list I asked the girl...


'Don't you need to see my ID? I have a FEATHER in my which means I MUST be young!'


She went with it and asked for my drivers license


THANK YOU!!!


Then off to The Junction to see Horrible Bosses.


Hysterical!!! I couldn't even breath most the time I was laughing so hard. The beginning was kind of slow, but when they got to planning the murders it was great. I'm sure everyone sitting next to me appreciated my loud outbursts of hysterics!!


Whose to stop me from enjoying my movie??? I have a FEATHER in my hair!!!

♥ Today I thought of you ♥

Today I thought of you, a smile shown across my face
I remember all the ups and downs that brought us to this place.
The love I feel, the strength you give and the man you are today,
are a few of the reasons why you're amazing in each and every way.

We joined hands and took an oath, to build a family
With two boys to grace our lives and turn our world upside down
This is what we've dreamed of, a family of our own
A man of strength and tenderness
The traits you've always shown.

Our home is filled with laughter, our hearts are filled with love
And every now and then we wipe away their tears
Each time I look to you, it takes away my fear

Our home, our love, our family
The place where love resides
The world is ours to have and hold
Anything we dream of is just a wish upon a star....

Today I thought of you, and a smile shown across my face
Next to you and in your arms, I've finally found my place. ~

♥ Cory ~ you have all my love and forever my heart ♥

Rainy Day Fun

Monday's rain storm left our options limited for play activities. Normally, I'm not the best sitter as I am doing MY chores while the kids get into trouble and play. So today, I vowed to do my best to entertain. We decided to have Pre-School at the Green House today.




Meet Ms. Pickles, my assistant and our class



Extreme close up
Practicing hard to write our names



Movie time after snack...notice Casey is still snacking.


Jayden, Harry, Casey and Alli


Now, when is nap time so Mommy can have special time with On Demand???

Whitey..tighty..Shoulder Pads?

This morning while I was getting ready for the day, Jayden was doing his normal routine of snuggling in my bed watching cartoons.

He walks past me and heads into the To-To Room and shuts the door. Now in most families..this wouldn't be that alarming. However, in our close family Mom is usually the only one that shuts the door.

Here are my thoughts.

1. He is growing up and wants some privacy
2. Maybe he's got a tummy ache and doesn't want Mom to see
3. I've got a new scale, so he's going to play on it.

All harmless thoughts, right? I should have known better than to go against my better judgement. A few minutes pass, the to-to flushes and out walks Jayden. He's got his head cocked to the side and his shoulder looks a bit more padded than when he entered the room.

"Jayden, what's in your shirt."

"Um....my panties. I like them there" As he proceeds to 'pet' his shoulder.

"Did you have an accident?"

"Maybe a little one."

"Jayden, that better not be poop panties rolled up in your shirt!"

"Oh, it's not Mom. Just a wittle pee panties."

Yes, I think he'll have a morning bath instead of the normal nightly bath.

Slumber Party...

My Aunt Laurie is AmAzInG!! She loves to be with the kids and loves to spend time with all of them. She can be found daily running errands for my sisters, taking kids to the movies or lunch dates and taking my Grandpa places.

She's retired so she's got free time on her hands and we love having her around. Jayden hasn't always spent a lot of time alone with her, I always felt like he would be a pain or too much to handle but lately it's been clear he's dying for one on one time with Auntie as we call her.

So last week, Jayden and I called Auntie to see if Jayden could be put on the waiting list to spend the night at her house and sure enough there was spot! Thursday after Jayden got home from Karate, we packed a overnight bag and off the went!

He got to go to dinner, and have snow cone for dessert. He loves that she has a toy room with a mini couch that has a pull out bed. Later he told me her bed was much better than his bed Mom, can't you please buy me a couch bed??

The next morning she took him to IHOP for breakfast and he got to help her with chores. He had so much fun with her. She is great to spend time with the kids and she gave him a great report card so he can stay on the list for future sleepovers!

Thanks Auntie..We Love You!
