They Dye and Perm Hair, Don't they?

Just like Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale, I feel the need for a major hair change. I've had the same hair style for 3 years now: light brown, blonde highlights to blend the grey, side-swept bands, layers, and long. I also, absurdly, prided myself on the fact that my hair matched the color of my ex-boyfriends beard. Strange how you think whenever you're wrapped up in the hype and celebrity of a competitive beard grower.

This is what I'm thinking:
Jane Fonda from The Shoot Horses, Don't They?
Sure, it would require I perm, bleaching, going very short, and constant maintenance to make for cute styling...something I'm not willing to do. And, considering my hair dresser is a very good friend of mine, I can already hear her telling me, "No way, girl! You'd hate it after 2 days. Just buy a wig" That being said, I'm looking forward to another great haircut and color to enhance the same style I've enjoyed for the last 3 years. Which, I guess, means the breakdown that has produced the desire for change wasn't, in fact, that dramatic after all.

Ladies Movie Night for One

"I'm all up in your Kool-aid and I don't even know your flavor"

Waiting to Exhale is definitely in my top 50 favorite movies. Something about Angela Bassett makes me want to smack a brotha upside the head when he does wrong. And trust me, I know a couple that should be smack hard as hell. Crying at home, but in the good way. I know I'll get by with a little help from my girlfriends.

Lunch Break

I wouldn't say I was estranged from my real father, but I guess that is what it is. I have an amazing step-father who I consider to be my dad, so I've never wanted more than what I had. Until my recent stay in the hospital, it had been over 4 years since we had talked. He called me on the phone and we talked briefly as if no time had passed. It has been over 5 years since we last saw each other, which shouldn't be the case since we only live 300 miles apart and he was an executive in the airline industry. This past Sunday he asked to fly into town for lunch and I agreed....lunch was today.


It went well. I took him to JPs to meet my BFFs (sorry Beth we left there just as you got there) and then we had a 2 hour lunch. Talked about some childhood memories, our careers, my sister's children, and things just kept rolling. I guess after 4 years there's plenty to say. It was refreshing when I expected it to be stressful. Here are some photos he gave me: youth in the 80s

I'm wearing my name on my shirt just incase you didn't know who I was!

Christmas tree hunting!

Change of pace

MAJOR UPDATE DUE:

So, I originally started this blog to chronicle my goal for my 30th year to lose 30 pounds before I turn 30, which will be this next year. Since then, so many things have happened, that the new intent of this blog is to communicate.

Shortly after my stomach bug, I dumped my boyfriend of 3 years and found a lot of emotional unrest following. If you know me, you know the details, but if you don't its really hard ending something that you worked so hard for, wanted so badly, and never wanted to end. That's that! As a result, I eagerly deleted my Facebook and Twitter profiles and discovered I had an incurable dependency on communicating. Why do I feel the need to tell the world that the hallway outside of my office smells like beef jerky right now? I don't know, but it's there and it was driving me insane during the first few weeks of my breakup. (This was less than 2 months ago). Also, I've received feedback that my "friends" are just unsettled without being updated on this type of information via social networking. So, here it is....this is my one-sided source for updates, communication, information, etc.
