A Thread can do that?

Sorry ladies! Seriously, life has been pretty busy lately, but its been as fun as ever. Work has been kicking me in the behind and month end is coming up which means I will be busy again. I just dream of the days where I am busting my butt for my own company instead of "The Man". I promise I will make it up to you.

One thing I get asked about every now and then is about my eyebrows. They are nothing fancy, but I guess its because when I get them done they look really good and are pretty even. I will admit that back in middle/high school I had the super thin eyebrows, but I am glad I grew out of that phase during my senior year. My senior year in high school I discovered eyebrow threading.

What is eyebrow threading? They use thread to pull out each hair, kind of like tweezing, but much faster. It is a very good method to use especially if you are growing your eyebrows out. I have never gotten my eyebrows waxed so I can't compare it to that, but I know the precision is much better when threading. Threading does hurt a little when you first do it, but it doesn't take long for you to get used to it. After about 9 years of doing this, I think it feels kind of good? It took me some time to find "my" eyebrow lady, but I will not go to anyone else. I did have someone make them super thin again and it took me months to grow them out.

I like my eyebrows to be on the thicker side because of the size of my face. I also always fill them in with an eyebrow pencil or eyeshadow. I think it makes a huge difference when you do fill in your eyebrows because it really frames your face.

Have you heard of threading before? How do you like it? If not, would you try it? Do you fill your eyebrows in now?

Last week was very busy for me. My coworker was out of town so I was doing double the work and after 5 we had a few networking meetings and a grand opening to attend. Not to mention work decides to block photobucket and tinypic so I can't view many people's pictures or post my own.

I wore this outfit a few weeks ago to a friends birthday dinner and then out for drinks. You may remember this skirt because I posted it awhile back wanting to purchase it in green. When I went to my local UO they only had it in black and yellow.

Despite the hectic week, I did make some time to buy a few items from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Anyone else get anything from there?

Wanted: Confidence

I haven't been very motivated lately. Maybe its because I've fallen into the same old routine with work and coming home. Life is too short to go from day to day doing the same un-inspiring things. So at 8:30 AM this morning, feeling a mix of "un-inspiredness" and a case of the Monday blues, my mind ran across all these nifty things I would like to do with my life.

I am really glad I got a chance to hang out with a friend this weekend and follow her on her job. It was a chance for me to become inspired. I have alot to learn and the only way to learn is through trial and error. I wish I was confident enough to seek out a couple to take pictures of because right now my only volunteers are kids and teenagers. And while I like to photograph them, there are some things you just can't do with them.. this...

What are you inspired by? Whatever it is, I hope you have the confidence to go out and do it. Hopefully I will be there soon.

People say when girls are little they dream about there wedding day. I never once dreamed about the dress I would wear, the flowers, the cake, none of it when I was young. What I did dream about was the man that would love me whole-heartedly (is that a word?). When I was about 15 years old I realized the kind of love that I hoped to find.

My grandmother had just passed away after a long fight with cancer. It crushed my grandfather's heart, but he was strong for the family. He arranged everything for her funeral without a cry. When it came time to place a flower on her casket, he broke down. It was the first time many of us saw him cry. He visited her grave so often that he had a special chair and umbrella that was stashed away in his car. This is what I know as love.

Love sets your heart on fire.

Growing Old

Warning this could be considered a "Debbie Downer" post, but its just the way I feel.

Last night in bed Hubs and I were talking about something and I told him he was going to give me a heart attack. He said that I am not supposed to be the first to go. And with those words the bubble popped, I was brought back to the real world.

Sometimes I feel like my life is a dream, not a dream as in everything is good all the time, more like the life I am living is all in my head. Or that I am really someone else looking in on another person's life. I rarely ever think about getting old, but when I do I am afraid of death. I am afraid that when that time comes I won't be ready, that I will leave too much behind. Maybe I feel this way because there are still so many other experiences I have yet to check off my bucket list, so many other feelings I have not felt, so many things I have not seen.

I sometimes wonder what happens to my soul after death, what it will actually feel like to die.

Am I alone on fearing death?

Lounging Around

As excited as I am that tomorrow is the start of a long weekend for me, I am sad that Hubs will probably work part of the day. So tomorrow I am going to lounge around at the house, try to see if the spa can fit me in for a massage (one that I desperately need), and possibly take some more pictures. I have only ever gotten a Swedish massage and am contemplating a deep tissue because the Swedish did nothing for me. I am thinking about asking them to do a lighter deep tissue? Is there such a thing? If you have ever had a deep tissue were you really sore the next day?

Here is something I wore when we were walking around in Playa del Carmen at night. Some of you may be wondering why some of my pictures I crop off my face and some I don't, well truth is I am not photogenic. I rather just cut my face off.

I am normally a skirt/dress girl, but I normally don't wear anything this short. It doesn't look that short in the front but in the back it is. I always have to be careful because "baby got back" as my hubs would say it. I always have a hard time finding pants that fit me in the hips and the waist.

For those of you who wear short skirts, do you get self conscious about it? How do you prevent a wardrobe malfunction?

Have a wonderful 4th of July ladies!
