I Am Thankful For...


Thanksgiving is a time for us to forget all the frustration and disappointments in our world… It is our time to think of family and loved ones….It is a time to reflect on the things we are thankful for…Thanksgiving is a good time to reflect on how lucky we are to have what we have in our lives…

I am having a really bad year and it has been hard to reflect on the positive things in my live…I do try though!!! When things are rough, we tend to dwell on the entire negative and less on the positive…But, No matter how good or bad you think life is…wake up each day and be thankful for life…Someone somewhere else is fighting to survive!!!

So, for today I am going to focus on the things…

My Husband: I am thankful for a supportive…loving and handsome husband who I can always count on to be there for me…Good times or bad!!!


My Kids: I am thankful for the joy and laughter they bring to my life…They are amazing and make my life complete!!!
My Parents: I am thankful I have two wonderful parents that have provided me with a wonderful home… and guidance throughout life… They taught me to be a strong independent person and to be thankful for what I have…

 My Girlfriends: I am thankful for the friends in my life who continue to inspire me daily… I love that I am able to have get-togethers and laugh with them until our tummies hurt or someone passes out…LOL


I couldn't have said it better...LOL!!!!!

Beautiful weather: Our weather has been gorgeous here in NC with warm weather and beautiful luminous leaves…I am thankful we will continue to have amazing weather for the Thanksgiving weekend…

How can you not love the Carolina blue sky???

My Home: I am thankful to have a home that is filled with love & memories…I strive to make my home a warm place to come home to and provide a loving environment for all the family & friends that enter…

My Blogging Family:  I am also thankful for my blogging family…Blogging has brought me great joy and I have met so many wonderful people...
(even if it is virtually)
I owe a “Big Thanks” to a very dear friend who got me started…
Thanks, Roberta!!!

And of course, I am thankful for the turkey I will be eating this weekend!!! 
Gobble Gobble!!!


 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO all my LOVED ones, my friends, and their families!!! This Thanksgiving give thanks to those you hold close to your heart and remember those that are no longer with us…And, as you sit at the table this Thanksgiving remember to give thanks to the United States Military, with a special thanks to their families!!!

Many Blessings to All!!!

Myth of the Sock Curls

I don't usually believe something works until I try it...or unless I know you and you have tried it...

WELL...the new hair craze is sock curls...And seeing how I love to try different things to my hair except cut it...and curling it can be a pain because it is so long...I thought I would check more into this GREAT new way to curl your hair....And look at all the beautiful pics of hair that has been supposedly curled with socks...

Aren't they beautiful??? Why wouldn't anyone with long hair NOT want to do this???

I know I do...I have really long hair...SEE...


It would look great with nice lose curls...but before I take you on my sock curls journey...here are a few of my most recent hairstyles...Not much you can do with long hair...

My new fringe (bangs)

Some Pink for Breast Cancer Month (October)

My new dark do for the winter

I'm sure you get the idea of how much I love to do my hair...

Here's the TRUTH about sock curls!!!!

They work for (plug your ears) shit!!!!

Yep!! I just cussed on my blog...but you know it's irritating when you see something that is all over the internet and all over PINTEREST...You would think it works...

Well I'm here to tell you it DOES NOT!!!

I've done the sock bun...


I've done the head band...


I've even done the sock rolls...


I can assure you that I did not get any of these...


But, I did get this and before I show you...let me warn you...

"DO NOT DO THIS WHEN YOU HAVE TO BE SOMEWHERE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING"

Are you ready???

READY

SET

LAUGH


~FAIL~

What on God's green earth am I suppose to do with this...I look like BOZO the clown and I have a 1/2 hour to do my make-up and tame this hair down...

Note to self: NEVER EVER do this again!!!

I wanted curls I sure as crap got them....and I do not have the time to wash...dry and style my hair...so I pulled out my spray bottle and sprayed water on it and just combed until the curls started to relax...

This is much better...


I learned a lesson here...

1) Do not try something new on a work/school night
2) Do not believe everything you see online
3) If it looks to good to be true it probably is

AND

4) Forget curling my hair with socks....LOL

TELL ME ABOUT SOMETHING YOU SAW ONLINE AND TRIED THAT WAS A FAIL!!
