Models on a Mission

Over the past week my friend Teisha has taken the idea of having a benefit fashion show and made it a reality.  We have been hard at work to make her vision come true and finally we are here.  I am happy to announce Models on a Mission: Benefit Fashion Show will take place June 16th at the VOX Theater.  All profits will be donated to the tornado victims in Joplin, MO via the United Way and Joplin Humane Society.

Head on over to our website and check out all of the details.  If you are interested in sponsoring, donating or buying tickets there are links that will redirect you to Paypal or you can email us.  I hope to see lots of my friends there helping us rebuild Joplin one step at a time!

Miss me??

Well if you didn't, you should have!!  After my last disastrous attempt at a blog I just couldn't bring myself to do another one but I think I am finally over it.  So I am back!

So what have I been up to in the last couple weeks?

Jameson will hand me camera and say "Cheese" when he wants his picture taken now :)

Giant moth we found in the yard while mowing.  It had a 6" wing span!

This weekend I flew out to Colorado to visit my sister-in-law and help out with wedding planning.  We were able to get a lot done in the short weekend: invitations, RSVP cards, flower girl flowers, centerpieces, reception floor plan and lots of other little details are all taken care of now.  Hopefully I was able to calm some of her nerves but I wasn't sure I was ever going to make it home.  My flight was supposed to take off at 7:25pm last night, after a 30 minute delay we got on the plane and headed out to the runway.  I closed my eyes and then the plane came to a stop so I opened my eyes and we had pulled back up to the gate.  I guess the sensor for one of the deicer's wasn't working so they had maintenance come take a look.  After another 30 minutes they told us that they could not fix the sensor so we were going to have to get off the plane and switch to another one.  A pain in the rear but not a huge deal until they told us the other plane wouldn't arrive in Denver for an hour and a half.  So we get off the plane and it was late enough at this point that all of the food vender's were closing and I had no dinner.  So tired, hungry and cranky me sat and waited patiently.  Finally the other plane arrived and I made it home at 2am.  It was a long night but I did have a good time this weekend.  I got lots of snuggles and smiles from Jameson this morning so that made it all better.

I hope you all haven't given up on me yet!

False Lashes

I was asked to do a tutorial on how to apply false eyelashes.  Which I just completed and when I went to download my pictures all but 2 of them are blurry and would be pointless to post.  I'm too frustrated to do it again so I posted one of the 2 pictures that turned out and I went to YouTube and found a nice video for you.I probably should have done a video myself instead of the pictures but I was told pictures were easier to follow.

So the basic steps are:
1) Apply your all your eyeshadow, liner and mascara before applying the lashes.
2) Hold up the lashes to your eye and check the length.  You may need to trim the lashes to fit your eye.
3) Apply lash glue across the lashes and let it dry for a minute until it becomes tacky.
4) Apply lash to top of lashes starting at the center then pressing down the ends.

It is not an easy thing to do and can be frustrating at first.  It is much easier to apply them on someone else.  Good luck!!

Just when you think it can't get any worse...

Count your blessings because it can get worse.  After my deplorable morning I was just ready to go home and hug my little boy.  I just kept thinking it can't get any worse until I received a text this afternoon that my grandfather was admitted to the hospital for a heart attack.  He is stable now but we don't know the extent of the problem yet. I don't trust the hospital he is in at all so if you would all be kind enough to say an extra prayer for him I would be grateful.

Bad Days

Why is it when your day starts off bad more than likely that will be the tone of your whole day?  Why don't things get better?  It is only 11am and I have had more bad today than I care to have in a whole month!  The problem is that this is a public blog that anyone can read so I have to be selective in what I actually write/vent about.  So many things to say yet so little I can actually say without possible repercussions.

Dear Idiot,

  • You are not above me.  
  • Your shit does stink
  • Don't complain about it when you asked for it.
  • If you don't like it stop hiding it and say something!
  • You were better off  without that loser.
  • You are rude.
  • You are a pig, get it together!
  • Stop talking about it and just do it.

Jameson's Early Mother's Day Gift

As you probably remember from an earlier post Jameson has been a bit stingy with the "Mama's".  You tell him to say Mama and he says Dada or No.  He refuses to say it!  It is Dada this and Dada that and I am so tired hearing about Dada.

Last night we were sitting in the living room and Jameson walked straight up to me and said "Mama" to get my attention!  I screamed, nearly started crying and was in shock.  Zack was sitting right there and heard it too so there will be no denying that he actually said it!  Of course he wouldn't repeat it but it was a good start right??

My little ladies man needs to give some love to his mama before he starts handing anymore out like he did this weekend!

Crafty Mother's Day Gift

I received an early Mother's Day gift this weekend from one of my best friends and I just had to share it.  I can never have too many photos of Jameson on my desk so I brought it to work to admire.  

Made of scrapbooking materials this box contains memories of Jameson's first year through pictures and words.

Remove the lid and the box collapses into a photo album.  

I was just blown away by the amount of time she spent to make something so beautiful for me.  She is truly a great friend and this is the best Mother's Day gift I could have asked for!

Oh and she just sent me this picture of her daughter and Jameson this weekend!  I had to share :)
