Spread A Little Joy

Oh I am so giddy and happy and euphoric this morning!!
I slept sooo good last night and woke up before my alarm went off, I just popped up all on my own and felt so well rested.
and booy oh boy were my little 'ole poodle friends so delighted to see me move under my mountain of blankets. heh heh.
I litterly skipped with them to the back door and to let them out.
It's cloudy today, and looks like rain, but I am feeling the extra happy and blessed vibe here.
I have my own little ray of sunshine beaming on me inside and wherever I go.
God, Isn't He just amazing? Thank Him. right now. before you read anymore.
I then had a very happy bowl of HoneyNut Cheerios .....yum yummy yumm-O!
and of course took my vitamines with a cup of OJ.
aaaaaand while eating my breakfast and conversing with my poodle friends in Dutch( they seem to like that even tho I don't know a single lick of Dutch! I just pretend I do! ha ha)
I have this song blasting very loudly in the house.
I mean. Serously. How can you NOT feel pumped up and ready to start your day when this is playing such a wonderful melody?
And the fact that it's a cream cheese commercial song?!
awesome blossom.
I adore cream cheese and bagels!!!
I pretty much put this song in the same ranks as Soul Sister.
yeah it's that good.
This is a GOODY GOOD morning Ya'll!!
Saturday!! Who could feel anything but some shape, form, or small vibe of happy on this day?
SMILE! skip, sing, whistle, talk to your doggies in whatever accent they prefer, and make the best of every blessed moment you have.
I'm off to visit the Horsey's and Ponies!

Candles and Sprinkles

Today my dear youngest sister is a double digit missy. She is 10 years old. TEN.
She reminds me so much of myself, I adore her!
Happiest of Birthdays to you Beautiful Chloe!

Blunder Blunder.... I moved out!

ah but only for 4 days...tee hee. as of right now I am sitting in a very quiet house, a house I have never been in before. since last night and on thru 'til monday I am house sitting for a friend, and her three doggy dogs are keeping me company and vise versa. It is always a little adventure house sitting, and I do believe this is my official first time! It's playing pretend, to see how it feels being all on my own lonesome at my pretend little pad. The biggest difference is not being constantly surrounded by family and or at least hearing them in the other room....their laughter or pitch of voice, the tv and sound of momma cleaning. Whimsical sounds, seriously, the sound or just presence and feeling of family is the sweetest! *gasp* do I sound like im pining? oooh dear will I be able to manage this? dont judge me yet....ha ha
On the other hand, or paw, or side, or view.... whichever you choose...
It's nice being alone and having plenty of time to think and catch up on various projects like homework...studying, witting letters, organizing my schedule....and sleeep!!
So... I dare say its been a jolly good Friday so far ..ah to be free from the grips of classes(yippe-dee-doo-dah for no college classes on fridays!!!) this week has been just plain crazy daisy and I am sooo superbly pleased that I have had a sloooow morning and the rest of the day should be just as swell!!

These 3 pups are my little friends (and constant shadows) for the weekend.... toy poodles. except for the one on the far right. I keep flip flopping talking to them in German accent and British just seems to come out like that whenever they are nearby.... we have become great friends I am quite sure...they have claimed my bed as their bed too...and as I type one is on my lap and the other on the top of the couch behind me...ha ha. I'm a poodle lady folks!

well be prepared for my updates from me at my pretend little home, I must go and study more ahhh I will NOT procrastinate no no missy.

Coffee Convo

*clears throat*
call me crazy, "special", paste eater, odd, or whatever word comes to mind as long as it is in the realm of not too rude and indecent.
But aside from my daily afternoon conversation with myself in the car all alone, or to other cars on the highway....I also have the most intense conversations with Me, Myself, and I in my little head. It all started with me waking up groggy, cuz I was not quite recovered from my 2 crazy candy high days.... and I was sitting in my early morning Algebra class admiring how sweet and quirky my teacher is and attempting to stay focused.....when this happened.....

Me: ok, I neeeed something....this feeling in my head is NOT good! I neeeed something
Myself: no no no, you young lady should be a little solider and look alert, and take notes- no! stop doodling!
I: Coffee, Coffee, Coffee, yum yum Coffee, must have Coffee.
Me: YES! I totally need caffeine, what a witty solution! perfecto, that's what I need
Myself: whoa whoa waity wait a minute. You aren't a coffee girl, you hate the taste of coffee...unless it doesn't taste like coffee but a concoction of sugary delightful happiness. yellow teeth, they saaaay you get yellow teeth. why start now? you will not become that girl - ok seriously? an alien doodle? your such a nerd
Me: aw my teacher is SO sweet! she looks sorta like that one fairy...... gosh coffee sounds good. I want real coffee, why does sugary goodness not sound appealing right now? what is happening to me?
I: YES! real Coffee, go get. Now! Grande! no Tall. big cup! will make you look all college- girl-ish
Me: Starbucks, oh I do have that giftcard! I should be nice and use it.... I should get an extra shot! oh jolly good ive always wanted to try that! whoa, they guy behind me sounds like Michael Buble, when he talks.....
Myself: seriously? where is your brain today?
I: CLASS IS OUT, go, you have a mission, find Starbucks and buy your cup of cheer!!
and so I did, I ordered A Granda Caramel Macchiato with an extra shot.
big deal for me, I see a macchiato as a merger between sweet goodness and real coffee-ness
plus I can actually pronounce it right so its fun to order!
I felt very grownup adding the extra shot....and you know what? It worked, I am so perky now, can't ya tell? ha ha no worries, let's hope the is, a, rare occurrence?
Today is a Craving Day, so go eat chocolate, ramen noodles, black olives, drink coffee, or whatever your quirk may be!

So Vewy Sorry Blogger....

I have been running around like a kid on a jelly bean high these past 2 days... work, school, homework, driving, studying for a bio test, more driving, remembering to eat, and sleep, and .... *deep breath* oooh but its all been a good , yes today was terrific Tuesday, and it was also my first day of my new internship( I attempted adding that to my busy plate today, I had some unexpected happenings come up!). I am exhausted and desperately need some R&R!
will you in this lovely happy world of blogging forgive me and perhaps still be my beloved friends and followers if I do not post my terrific post today? I always like to spend some time on them and right now im afraid it would not be as terrific as my idea wants it to be.
Im super ultra seriously honestly sorry to the tippyness of my little toesies!
I hope you are all doing well!!!!
I thank you in advance for your patience!!!!
Have a splendid evening on a couch with
some yummy ice-cream!
( well that's where I shall be anyhow!)

Just Let Your Feet Fly

Dare I say it? *sigh* oooh I just have to share this with you...I am too wired up not to. yesss, I went Swing Dancing again tonight. DANCING! I danced, again. the time just flew by I tell ya, whoosh and it was time for me to sadly leave the happy place of music and smiles, and groovy people, rad outfits, outstanding moves, twinkle lights, and terrific dance partners. ( these guys were ultra polite and brave and willing to tolerate my easily amused and distracted mind) I was surprised how much easier it all was for me, and I wasn't a bazillion arms lengths away from my partner staring at my toes and saying sorry over and over... I only stepped on one person's toes!! It's a record! I could dance without looking at my feet, do spins and twirls without spiraling into people or walls, and here's the big one..... I could talk to the other person and dance. at the SAME time. I multi-tasked. *faints* It was a different dance place then the last one I told you about.... it didn't have a huge shiny distracting disco ball... but it still had a bunch of distracting twinkle lights. What can I say, my easily distracted tiny brain can only take so much. It was a simply delightful evening. I think every weekend should be spent dancing until your feet hurt and your heart is filled to the brim with happiness... mine was. =]
I had a BLAST. ooh what jolly goood fun.
It was certainly a very special evening, (aside from the creepy older man who had way too much of a good time dancing with me the one time...*shivers* ha ha) I promise pictures next time, honest!!!
Have a Blessed Sunday tomorrow!!!
Count each and every blessing, for me? it will take a lifetime.

A Girl's Best Friend

{me on my dear friend horsey Delilah, earlier this week}
Happy Friday everyone!!!!!

The weekend is FINALLY here. oooh what joy and cheer it brings!!
Im vewwwy sorry my post is so late this time... Ive been out of the house.

Sooo, right this minute I am feeling exhausted, sleepy, groggy, skeptical, unsure, wondering, excited, surprised, happy, hopeful, sore....and oh so thankfully blessed!!
It has been a BUSY busy busy day. you know the kind that seem to go on foooorever, but then seem to just fly by at the same time? Where you feel like you will never have a chance to rest your feet or breathe or take it all in.
That's how my day has been, but it's all been worth it.
I literally do not think I shall ever move from this spot. ever. I am that tired. The kinda tired where you have worked alllll the live long day and you just know you will sleep oooh so good when bedtime arrives. A good tired. I love this tired. an accomplished tired!
Today ( among a very long list of other things including work) I went for an interview at a vewwwy fancy shmancy well-to-do brand spankin' new Equestrian Center.( horse place!)
It was an interview with their Hunter/Jumper trainer for a working student/internship position.
I was sooo surprised when I was offered this potential position earlier this week.
At first I was quite unsure and almost decided not to go for it... but then i realized that the least I could do is find out more info and see what I think.
I rode for the trainer and we sat down and did the big talk, and.........
I am going to be doing a "trial run" at the Center for the next couple of weeks.
To see if they like me and I like them.
I am sooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!
Yippidy dooodah

Wish me luck!
P.S allllll of you who commented on my last post? you MADE my day!!! thank you dearest friends, I wish I could hug you all right now.

"People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be."

For the record.......the self timer on my new camera works beautifully.
and jumping is just as fun as it looks.
aaaand I must continue to embrace that fact that I am such a kid at heart.
what glee.
Wonderful Wednesday!

Terrific Tuesday!!

Mama Mia!!
oooooh, the frighteningly GOOD goody good third day day of the week is HERE. Right now. and all morning, and the rest of the day, is Terrific!! no buts about it, if you have visited this blog on Tuesdays in the past, you realize how amazingly Terrific ...Tuesdays are ( ha ha, I am soo biased) You have had 2 days to mentally prepare yourself for Terrific-ness
and I do so hope that this blog not only makes things Terrific for you for aa few moments, but that you make sure Tuesday, the ENTIRE day is absolutely good and terrific. How has your week been? Mine has been good so far. Ok, this weeks item up for discussion is Food. ( now remember last weeks proposal? I hope you all try it out! ) I can't help it, Im a food kinda gal. I mean, I dont nibble, or inhale, or smell, or just imagine eating. I EAT. really, I do. and I ENJOY it!! I've had food on the brain lately...haaa, maybe it's because breakfast seemed so long ago and the campus vending machines offer no promising edible things worth my few quarters... but not just ANY food, Italian food!!! In case you didnt know, I am a fairly decent fan of Rachael Ray. Loved her forever and a day, and have cooked her food for years. Almost all her recipes have pasta in them, and I always connect pasta with Italy. I have a favorite recipe I want to share with you, that I make as often as I can... ( and need to make again, I am long overdue) some of you had tried this before, or I have shared it with you... but food is food is food. and I must bring these out of the attic once more. and I hope this will spark some interests in the food isle of your brain so that you can delight us all with your favorite recipe as well! just leave a comment! Yumm-O!!!
Roasted Ratatouille Pasta
Extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), for drizzling
1 head garlic
1 medium eggplant, ends removed, peeled and cut into small chunks
2 to 3 medium zucchini, ends removed, quartered and into small chunks
2 red bell peppers, cored, seeds removed and cut into small chunks
1 large onion, cut into small chunks
4 sprigs thyme, leaves removed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes
1 pound whole wheat penne
1/2 cup Italian parsley, chopped
1/2 cup (a large handful) grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, plus more to pass at the table
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Place a large pot of salted water over high heat and bring to a boil.
Cut a sliver off the top of the garlic head just large enough to expose the cloves. Tear off a large square of aluminum foil and place the garlic in the center. Drizzle a small amount of EVOO over the head and wrap the foil up around it. Place in the oven and roast until golden brown and tender, about 45 minutes. While the garlic is roasting, cut up the veggies and place everything except the tomatoes on one or two large baking sheets, along with the thyme leaves.
Once the garlic has been roasting for about 15 minutes, drizzle the veggies with EVOO and season them with some salt and freshly ground black pepper. Roast them in the oven until tender and caramelized, about 30 minutes.
Once the veggies have been in the oven about 10 minutes, place the tomatoes onto another baking sheet, drizzle them with EVOO and hit them with some salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss them into the oven with the other veggies and roast until they've burst and shriveled up slightly, 15-20 minutes.
Once the veggies have about 10 minutes left to go, drop the pasta into the boiling water and cook to al dente according to package directions. Before draining the pasta, ladle about 3/4 cup or so of the pasta cooking liquid into a large serving bowl. Drain the pasta and reserve. Once the garlic is done roasting, allow it to cool enough to handle, then hold the head in your hand over the bowl with the pasta water and squeeze out all of the roasted cloves into the bowl. Add the tomatoes and mash everything together.Add the roasted veggies, drained pasta, parsley and grated Parmigiano to the bowl and toss it all to combine.
Pass some additional Parmigiano-Reggiano at the table along with the bowl of pasta.
this is amazing, and is fabulous when served with

For She Muses the Monday Muse.

{photo taken by me during our New Years Day Picnic at church}
Hello! oh my dear friends in the happy world of blogging... how I have missed you so!
It is quite baffling how I have come to look forwarding to posting here. It's practically part of my daily world wide web ritual.... I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you ( and if you do not enjoy reading them... ehhh, just dont comment. ha ha) or just letting loose the thoughts all piled up in my mind. It's a good release, and it helps me clear my cluttered brain each day. Thinking positive in the morning by blogging positive always sets a good pace for the rest of the
So how have you been? was your weekend lazy and pleasant? Or was it busy and exciting? As you know I was attending my church's annual January meeting.
3 days of singing, preaching, good fellowship, and fantastic food!
it. was. AMAZING.
I never realized until this past weekend how much a need and appreciate it when our church hosts a meeting. I can escape from the world, from college, from unpleasant folks and temptations. I am surrounded by my church family. what a blessing!
I over 50 brothers and sisters in Christ.
My church holds a special place in my heart, they are such a part of my life, and treat me with the same love and consideration as my own family. I cant even begin to describe to you how close I am to them, from the elderly to the little itty bittys to the middle aged
and young folks in between......we are all on the same page and level.
We all sing hymns together, listen to the same sermons together, pray together, have a big potluck meal prepared by everyone, and, oh my, the hugs!
There is no separation of the "cool" and "uncool" no peer pressure.
This past meeting was especially blessed. I wish I could sprinkle about this whole blog the same feelings and emotions I felt there. beyond words.
I think we all need our monthly escapes from the world, sure, it makes going back SO much harder and uninviting... but it also gives us the strength to face our foes and tribulations. It screws our brains on right.....
Thank goodness for Sundays and Wednesdays too!
I have a few photos, but not as many as I had hoped to take, it was a busy weekend with a family staying in our home and feeding breakfast to 20 people, helping out at church.. it was so good! GOD IS GOOD.
I can feel that this week will be quite delightful, I am determined.

Friendly Fellowship Time

I will be helping ( and attending) a special meeting that my church is hosting this weekend.
it started last night.... it is amazing!
so I am off, but I promise to return monday!
( with pictures I hope.. )

Required: Ability to Stay on One's Feet

Ohhhhh my gravy.
you would not believe how mad my feet are at me right now....
to quote a brilliant red-head " If my feet ever find out it was my idea... they'll kill me!"
gotta love Lucy. She and I would have been the best of friends.
Yesterday was a breakthrough day for me.
after 3 years of not attempting to balance on a set of 8 wheels, I once again attempted this daunting feat.
You see... I was ( and still am deep down) an avid tomboy. I was the girl who wrestled with boys, chased them, dared them, beat them at everything I could, I collected live lizards and climbed trees, caught bugs, yelled, played in the dirt, I did stunts on my bike and was always proud of my many "battle scars" I had all over my arms and legs, I also roller skated/bladed EVERYWHERE ( and rode my bike everywhere too..). I remember when they came out with clear wheels on Rollerblades. it was THE thing to have on my street as a kid. So I got me some Rollerblades with clear wheels. In a week they were so scuffed up they looked like white wheels instead of clear. ha ha. I loooved them.
I could skate. I mean... skate skate. I would go as fast as I could at the roller rink, doing turns, sometimes going backwards. weaving in and out. I was light and smaller..... my body seemed to be more flexible too.
now? wow. it has been 2 years or more since I even attempted to place my foot inside a skate. I've had a MaJoR growth spurt since then.... and my longer limbs don't cooperate as well...
I just got so busy with high school and moving across the country.... and before then I had only gone a couple of times with friends.
Most of you know by now Im not exactly graceful as a ballerina... and Im quite accident prone.
hhhaaa, you would not believe how the butterflies started flapping when I walked into the roller rink, music was blasting...and before me lay a huge flat, slippery, shiny, threatening surface.
oooh boy.
I just decided to follow the little kids who were clinging to the wall... and then I finally ventured out into the rink where real people skate.
It was fun.
but I skated very slowly.
and I only made one little kid fall.
I skated for about 2 hours straight.
my feet hate me.....i am soo sore.
But I can't wait to

It works!!! well, er sorta.
you see, I was gonna post something this morning. but our power was out at home. no power.
nada. sooooo, thankfully I had a backup Terrific Tuesday post saved here on blogspot......, it's not quite as frighteningly good as my original idea. ( small...but still awesome!) but it is still a Terrific Third Day of the week post.
So, what makes Tuesdays so amazing? I can basically share with you whatever I think is terrific.
perhaps it will be a song, quote, idea, photo, recipe, store. anything at all.
but starting next week..... *drum roll*
I would LOVE it if you readers would leave a comment on the Terrific Tuesday post sharing something you find frighteningly good that is related to the one I posted.
Wanna give it a try?
I would be delighted if you did.
so next week?
it shall be an even happier Tuesday!!
This week's Terrific item is photos.
Pictures I have come across on the web that inspire me, make me smile, amaze me, or I just find cute.

Chilly H2o

As I stood in front of the sink this morning, my mind began doing that thing.. you know where it processes sane ideas and thoughts. *gasp* I do believe my brain was actually thinking....whoa.
well anyways.... I had turned on the water and I was waiting for it to warm up to a somewhat less brain damaging temperature so i could wash my face. You see, it's been anywhere from 25 degrees here in Florida to 45 degrees. There is frozen-ness everywhere!! ICE!! even snow in some areas ( not mine, boo)
It's crazy cool. central Florida? FROZEN? yuppy yup.
I'm beginning to be rather concerned about this whole global warming issue. I hope the government fixes it! haaaa, actually I do believe some people wish it would start to globally warm!
So the Florida pipes are deff not used to the idea of having to warm up. The water coming outta that foucet, that I was supposed to wash my face with? yeah. it was nowhere near warm.
I realized I would have to douse my sleepy face in cold water. very chilly water.
I also knew that once I did so, I would actually feel much more refreshed and awake then if I had done the same with warmy water ( which could take YEARS). Yeah.... I just stood there staring at that water. it even LOOKED cold.
That's when I realized that I was looking at starting a new semester at college,... the same way.....I had been intentionally ignoring the fact that classes start this morning. Or to put it plainly,....... I was VERY slowly beginning to warm up to the idea. I've just been enjoying my break far too much. and the idea of learning just didn't seem all too appealing.
This semester will be haaaard. and looooong.
I know that once I jump in and get my whole body soaked rather then my tippy toes... It will be worth it. I will accomplish more, and focus more, and perhaps even pass my classes. *gasp*
If I just stand there staring at it, it ain't never gonna warm up. If I just keep on skipping through lazily like I'm still on break.... the result will not be refreshing. gahhh... this thinking process was painful. ha ha.
Did I ever mention how stubborn I can be?
so here's to the Spring 2010 semester. I am actually somewhat excited now, and determined to kick some learning badonkadonk.
I'm off, and my nose is cold.

Because I must......

My Daddy went to the University of Alabama... so as a mandatory rule the entire family is Bama fans.. ha ha ;) but it's all good, and I'm slowly beginning to understand football better...
It was a good game. =]

Roll Tide, Roll.

......I make a list for every little thing or task...........
........I skip to the exciting parts of a somewhat dull-ish book.........
.......I am lazy, lazy, oh my so lazy!...........
................I'm beyond excited when I find a really inky pen................
............I will have the same song playing in my head all day long..............
.......I watch a certain person for so long that they notice it and give me an odd look.....
...........I carry on conversations with the horses I care for like they are people......
............I go into a store JUST because it smells nice.........
......I tell really cheesy jokes and try to convince everyone they are super funny.............
..........I scream really loudly on an amusement ride. because I can.................
........I use shampoo for body wash...........
...........I stay in my pj's all day....................................
...........I eat blueberries and raspberries for breakfast in a bowl like cereal............

Terrific Tuesday!!!!

Hello! Hello. Welcome!!!
I am especially excited about this week's Terrific Tuesday!!
Mainly because we all know what happened last week Horrible, wasn't it? But then again, I am merely posting stuff that I myself think is quite the bee's knee's! vewy Terrific. I'm, sure though that it probably bores you most of the time, or perhaps you have already heard about my Terrific thingy....... I sorta apoligize, I just can't help that fact. As for the apology, I only did a partial one because I just find this great fun and don't really care!! ** ginormous grin** So this week's item of the frighteningly GOOD third day of the week is Music. MUSIC!!!!!!! I have to admit, music is my downfall. Oh music, if I could take the time and tell you how much I enjoy you, and sometimes miss you, and am quite fond of you... it would take me until I was an old granny. or perhaps longer. I honestly cannot go a day without playing, humming, singing, yelling, or listening to some sort of tune. Most of the time my music is excessively happy. which drives some people NuTs!! But what can I say? I seem to be drawn towards uplifting melodies. Why would I want to ruin my day by blasting the sound of a guy who sounds like he is being strangled by the Wolverine, or some dude who can just talk really really fast with a few "ah huhhhh, what up" 's thrown in there???
Music is simply a grand gift from God. He gave us voices, and the opportunity to express our emotions through heartfelt melodies. So all day yesterday I was thinking about music, and decided to share with you some of my current favorites that I think are just Terrific from my ipod. I will also put a song from each artist in my playlist on the sidebar>>>
so you can hopefully fall for them yourself. =]

The Group Known as Train- and their Beautiful song called Hey Soul Sister

Greg Laswell. LOVE HIM! and his song How The Day Sounds ...I also like And Then You, and Comes and Goes, Ingrid Michaelson and her song Be Ok Rogue Wave and their very groovy song Lake Michigan
A Fine Frenzy ( LOVE the hair!) and their song Blow Away
Broadcast 2000 and their somewhat quirky but very cool song Get Up And Go
The band Matt & Kim and their song Daylight

ok.... I am seriously getting really carried away here!!! gaaaahhhh and I'm only halfway through. All these artist so far are fabulous and even though i only listed one song for each artist, all their songs are pretty amazing! Basically this is what I have been listening to this past week, so you get to see my wide range of music choices. It changes every week, like say, next week it could be Oldies and the Classics with some Folk music thrown in.... I LOVE oldies.... goodness, can't even go down that road or this post would last forever! I listen to all kinds of music. it's amazing. I hope you enjoyed a small taste of my ipod. I think it's Terrific!!! Any fav songs of yours you would like to add?

Oh my goody goodness.
Today, January 4th.
I'm one year older, from 18 to 19.

It's crazy! I never imagined myself as a "19 year old"
those were considered "boring college people" when I was younger.
now I am in their shoes. and I have to say... it's not boring, horrible, sad, depressing, or anything like that. Who says 19 is old? I mean, REALLY. I'm certainly not throwing myself into the "got to act all grownup and serious and complain constantly about how OLD I am.." group. no way. nope, not gonna happen. Sorry folks, it would be absolute torture and completely unprofitable.
heh heh. besides, I highly doubt I'm going to be able to act like an adult when I see a birthday cake and presents. I have to say I owe another good year of life to God. Where would I be without His guidance? He really impacted my life last year as an 18 year old... and I have to admit it was haaard. I doubt this year will be any easier... choosing the right path isn't always rainbows and butterflies. but it is every penny worth the effort. The results are beyond amazing. God? Thank you, for loving someone like myself who makes new mistakes everyday and who is constantly falling back to the wayside. I pray my faith in you will only grow stronger!
and to all my lovely friends and family, thank you!
I love birthdays!

"Rapunzel, Rapunzel..."

...... chopped off her hair. Well ok maybe not in the original story, but in the Barbie Rapunzel movie the evil stepmother DOES chop off her hair. she got mad.
Ok, so maybe I'm not Rapunzel, and I definitely don't have boys climbing up my hair ( it ain't even long enough for that!) or dragons for pets.But today, as part of my birthday coming up/ Kicking off the New Year 2010. I donated 10 inches of my hair to Locks of Love
This is my second time doing it. and It has been about 3 years since the first time. I have known for a long while that I wanted to do it again, and I am so glad I did. My hair has always grown REALLY fast... and I just decided to put my fast growing hair to good use. I wanted to do it for my birthday and the new year. It's such a good cause, and it makes your happiness level go WAY up! Just knowing that I will always be able to grow hair, when others cannot, makes it worth it. Plus after this I plan to try growing my hair SUPER long.
*BIG grin* This is the shortest my hair has ever been, besides when i was itty bitty,
It is completely new and different for me, and perfect for a fresh year! I like it, I really think I do =] , it will certainly take getting used too. ha ha, I feel like I lost 10 pounds! Boy will showering and getting ready be so much faster!!!
what do you all think?
