Day 6: A funny (and true) story.

When my dad lived in Santa Fe apartments, Britney and I would visit every other weekend. Almost every Saturday night we were with him we would get pizza and watch a movie. There was one particular weekend I will never forget.
Britney, only 11 at the time, was sitting on the floor picking out a movie. As she was putting Wayne's World into the vcr she ripped the loudest fart I have ever heard! As I started laughing my Dad calmy picks up the phone and dials a number. This is how his conversation went:
"Hello, Mr. President? I would like to inform you that no, that was not an earthquake we just had, it was just my daughter farting. Good talking to you, bye!"
We laughed together all night long, I think I actually laughed myself to sleep that night.

Day 5: What have you learned in the past month?

This month, I have not really learned anything new, but I have had a reminder of the past. It was right before Joe and I were married that the economy took a turn for the worst. He lost his job from the best company he could ever work for, CPI. Luckily, because of his positive attitude and his great work ethic a company took him in just 2 days later.
Now... almost 3 years later, its happening again. Joe will most likely lose his job again this month. I thought things were looking up and getting better. I guess not for everyone. Going through all this again has reminded me of what life is all about, what marriage is all about. I know that no matter what happens I can depend on my husband and he can depend on me just the same.
I know we will get through this rough patch, we have done it before and we will probably have to go through it again, that is just the way the world turns.
I am a firm believer that when one door closes, another one opens. Joe is the most motivated and positive person I know and we will be fine in the long run, its the little bumps in the road that make you stronger.
He deserves much better. Eventually all his hard work will pay off.

Day 4: The reason you believe you are alive today

This is a pretty tough question...
I think the reason I am alive today is because I have only been on this earth 23 short years, I am just beginning to start my life!
I haven't even started what I'm supposed to do here, I want to have kids with Joe and start a family, I want to go above and beyond with my career and start a business of my very own (Joe is convinced that I'm going to buy out Paul Mitchel..)
I work hard and play harder, my life has just begun!
So the answer is pretty simple after all...

Day 3: Something that makes you feel better

There are 2 things in the world that make me feel better.
First one..

There is no better feeling knowing that I get to come home to him every night. No matter if I've had a great day, or the worst day of my life, knowing that I get to see him at the end of my day is the number one thing that makes me feel better.


My slippers.

The first thing I do when I get home is put on my pink fuzzy slippers. I love getting ready and looking good for my job, but sometimes it just feels good to dress down and put on some comfy pants and my slippers.

Day 2: What can be found in your purse?

Everyone who knows me, knows that I have one of everything in my purse. And usually one of every color... Well I will have you all know, right now my purse is pretty clean! I cleaned it out before we went on our cruise and I have kept only the necessities in it. It doesn't weigh 500 pounds anymore :)
In my purse you can find:
Wallet.. With the essentials
Notebook.. I need to write a list for EVERYTHING
Extension Tool.. Brand new!
Crossword Puzzle Book
Lip Gloss.. I NEED every color
Salon Folder
Appointment Book.. My whole life!
Tide Pen
Book.. Insomnia by Stephen King
Tylenol.. Can't live without it!
Keys.. If I lost them my life would be over
That pretty much sums it up. Of course every girl has the basis spare change and the bobby pins at the bottom but that's not important. And YES... this might sound like a whole lot, but my purse is more like a body bag and its only filled about 1/4 of what it normally is.. so I did pretty good!
