Top 2 Tuesday: Top 2 Celebrity Hairstyles

1. Maria Menounos- I love her soft curls and beautiful brunette hair.
To this day, I still suck and curling my hair, I am trying to learn
but it's crazy that at 28 I've never mastered curlying my hair.

2. Carrie Underwood- The girl first off is gorgeous, but she always has great hair, even at the hockey games, ugh so jealous.

So who are your picks for Top 2 celebrity hairstyles. Visit Taylor at The Undomestic Momma and tell us.

On a different note, please, please, please continue to pray for me a full-time job, the money issues are getting even tougher now and I just can't think that at almost 29, I may have to go knock on Mom and Dad's door and ask to borrow money to make ends meet. Thanks ladies!!

Why do these things always happen?

You know that whole, "you meet someone when you're least expecting it"? Yep, story of my life. Let's go back about 6 wks now, maybe even 8 (not really sure, wasn't counting) anyways, I went out with one of my good friends Brad and Nancy, I met this wonderful guy who i wasn't really interested in talking to, because I really to be quite honest wasn't really interested in talking to anyone. Well, he has since swept me off my feet, spending every moment we could together, all weekend long and a few trips me up there and him here (he was about 45 min outside of here) well last Wednesday I get a text saying, "I really need to see you" I told him it was girls night so I would come down there or he could come here Thursday night and we'd talk. Well, lets just say I wasn't expecting that talk....I tell you, I expected something much worse, like he lied and was married or had a girlfriend, something along those lines as I always think negative it seems.

Well that wasn't the case, the case is, he travels for work and is always moving with a job, it could be 3 months here, 6 weeks there, a year here, just depends. Wow, that through me for a loop, I actually laughed and said, "that I can live with, I thought you were gonna say you were married or something" hahaha, (he didn't find it humorous) anyways, so now, we're doing the whole "long distance thing" well I really ticked him off with 50 million questions Saturday night and I know he was getting frustrated and yes, I tried to back-off, but it's hard when you have honestly fallen head of heels and you hear those words "I have to leave, but don't want too". It was honestly like a knife to my heart I literally can't begin to tell you how I felt looking at him not knowing when I'd see him again. So we had the dreaded, "do you wanna do the long-distance thing" conversation. I have to be honest, I've never done a long-distance relationship, but I can tell you this, getting to text him everyday and speak to him a few times a week and see him hopefully at least once a month is way better than thinking I'd never see him again.

I can't begin to tell you ladies how hard this is for me, because I'm not the kind to trust easy or fall hard very quickly. I've enjoyed the last almost year of being single and doing whatever it is that I want to do, but there's something about him that I totally love, the way he talks to me, the way he listens, the way he makes me feel like I am something important, well that all seemed great and scary to me. So Sunday afternoon before he left, I laid it all out there, the "whole kit and caboodle" type thing, totaled him exactly how i felt and lets just say, he told me how he felt earlier last week and then Saturday he told me something I just ignored (i'm sure you can figure that one out ladies) then yesterday I said it back to him, I gave myself the okay to feel this way for someone again and just went all heart in. I have never felt this way about someone in such a short time and I'm really hoping the distance doesn't destroy it, I'm scared to death but love the feeling I have when I see, talk, text, anything with him. He treats me amazing when we're together and I have to ask or do nothing, he just gets it and gives me the world when we're together. Hopefully, the silence in him yesterday evening and today isn't a bad sign, because he's hardly spoken since 5 yesterday evening, hopefully it's just because he is finally getting to spend time with his family again. But I seriously have a fear of scaring him off with my emotions, lets face it, ladies, we're emotional creatures and I think even through text messages that can come across. I am hoping that things haven't changed for him in less than 48 hours, especially after all he said to me Saturday night, but I hope that it's just that he's spending time with his family and trying not to make me so sad.

Please pray for me, this is a scary journey to me right now, but one that I am totally willing to take, I can't say enough about him, he was truly unexpected and he has really been wonderful to me. I just pray he hasn't changed his mind in the 24 hrs he's been home, surely it's just the stress and time he was with his family. Comments are definitely welcomed.

The Bachelor: Finale

Did anyone watch the Bachelor Finale? I'm sure you did. I was rooting for Emily and Brad since day one. I think they make a very cute couple, but what was up with her last night? She didn't seem like the same Emily I watched all season long. But in the end, I am so happy for them and think they make a very cute couple. Can you believe yesterday/last night was suppose to be their wedding day. Wow, that would have been fast.

So what do you think about her new hair do? I like it, it's very cute on her.

In the end, I hope that we see their wedding and that it plays out on t.v.

Life takes its turn

Well, things are looking up and down right now. It's no secret I have been through hard times hell lately, but things are actually starting to look up some. The only down part right now is kicking this 40 lbs I've gained since last year off. Yes, I have literally gained almost 40 lbs and every time I lose 5 lbs I seem to gain 5 lbs. Ugh such a struggle. Please pray I kick it before the summer, I really don't want to buy a one piece, I refuse. I worked hard for my flat stomach and will have it again!!!

Okay, lets get to the "up news" I met someone and while it's nothing serious, it's a happiness I haven't felt in quite a while. I filled my loneliness and emptiness with my ex-bff, the gym and unfortunately food over the last year, but things are starting to get better. I am taking EVERYTHING one day at a time. I have trust issues and this guy has definitely in the last 3 weeks taken notice of that. I have probably called him a liar for just about everything he has said and yes, I've even gone as far to check the court records, criminal background check, etc. (don't judge me, I've been through hell and I work for attorneys, enough said.) Anyways, he seems to checkout, I haven't mentioned it to my parents but they know I am texting all the time (I HATE talking on the phone, I do that all day at work.) And wonder where I've been sneaking off to some nights. hahaha

Anyways, he seems to be honest and forthcoming, I am not looking for anything serious and I was totally upfront about that with him too. It's nice to have a change from just hanging with friends and having a conversation with someone about your interest, their interest, etc. Weird to think I am "dating" again because I seem to always be in long-term relationships, but I am liking the change.

On another happy note, it made my morning and my realization that God does not forget his children, yes, I have been struggling so much lately with my faith through everything, that I didn't even know if God cared about me, but I am seeing that he does and if I seek him, he is faithful to be there for me. Thanks Megan, you really opened my eyes today. GOD IS GOOD!!!

Additionally, I have been down because for almost a year now I have been searching for another full-time job and yet to have found one. i know the economy has been bad and I am not the only one with this problem, but again, I am giving it to God and praying. Please pray for me a full-time position soon. I am blessed to have my part-time job, but let's face it, I miss being able to do everything I did last year and money is really running low now and now I don't have a car either!!!

I will leave you with this today: Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the ... For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper
you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

and last.....

Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.

Friends Hurt

A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Prov. 17:17

I try to be a good friend, I try and go out of my way anytime my friends need me. So why can't I expect the same from my friends? As if losing my bff wasn't hard enough, now to be going through this; it's like my heart has been ripped out of my chest once again. Just when I thought things were looking up and getting better.

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Cor. 12:9

I am the kind of person who will give up everything for a man if I truly love him (which, I learned the hard way through my ex's abuse not to ever EVER do again) give anything to a friend in need, put everything behind you if you're having a hard time. So why, why can't for once someone do it for me. Don't get me wrong, I am not having a pity party, I am blessed with the life God gave me and very, very thankful for his grace and mercy, but I am only human and it still hurts.
