Manic Monday

Just another Manic Monday.... woahhh ohhh...

What gives you hope?

HUGE believer in FATE. While I have a handle on the decisions I make and the general direction my life is going in, I believe I am not the final decision maker. What ever comes my way was in the cards for me. That tomorrow is a new day. Not knowing gives me hope. And knowing that I have someone watching over me, guiding me on this journey? That gives me hope.

Sorry if that was too hippy/new age for you. Its my mood this morning I guess...

How often do you get your haircut? Describe your worst haircut.

I enjoy my hair style from the moment it gets cut until it reaches the bottom of my neck. So, I'm more of an every-2-months kinda chopper instead of an every-4 weeks-type.

The worse haircut. *sigh* Years ago my good friend had just joined a salon after a year of beauty school. I had such faith in her. Gave her a photo and explained what I wanted.

She gave me a short trendy mullet. While it wasn't obviously a mullet, it was very much big on top, skinny on the sides and long in the back. I never went back to her and had to pretend I was "growing out my hair" for months afterwards.

What's your most treasured piece of jewelry? Why?

Well my wedding ring of course! My engagement ring and wedding band are the puzzle piece type and are now sautered together. I most likely do this because I'm newly married, but I stare at this piece of jewelry OFTEN. Sometimes its obnoxious and I get called out on it. But, its just so blingy and in certain lights even more so! And, of course, I treasure this piece because of what it symbolizes. Me and Babers undying love for one another. :)

I find the whole concept of fate to be a frightening one. Am I believe I was destined to kill that hooker, and that there was absolutely nothing I could do about it? A troublesome notion indeed.

That's cute that you love your engagement ring/wedding band (and stare at it, haha).

I love getting haricuts! So it is indeed sad when a bad one happens. One time this Russian hairdresser gave me a cut similar to the one you described...horrified!!

Hmmm, Fate/Hope.....I'd say even though I prefer to plan my life and the events in it, the fact that God has everything covered helps me relax, go with the flow and have hope.

Hair Cut: (naturally curly hair) At ten, my mom let me perm my hair and get a stacked bob. HUGE mistake. I generally for 3 to 4 months. I still trim my own hair, but when I get to that "I need to chop it off NOW!" stage, then I go the experts.

Jewelry: Wedding ring, of course, because it looks antique and Ken did a great job picking it out. College graduation ring (family piece, lots of bling.)

Fate kindof scares me, but knowing that there's always tomorrow gives me hope.

Bad haircuts are the worst. Mine was a perm in junior high and my hair just didn't curl right. It was horrible.

Jay- Don't worry about that hooker. She was asking for it.

i like what you said about hope. although, when you said "the not knowing gives me hope" i guess i see that as having faith. because whatever is meant to be, will be. and everything happens for a reason.
so fate, hope, faith... by any other name, is still fate, hope, faith.... ;)

I believe is meant to happens the way it does. Everything happens for a reason.

The worst haircut was when I was growing out my hair and went to the super cuts to save money and get a trim. They can do a trim right. Not. It was so horrible I cried and I never cry.

I had to go to a real salon and the only hope was to get a super short haircut and start growing my hair out again.

Live and learn.

What the heck did I just write? I meant to write, "I believe things are meant to happen the way they do. Everything happens for a reason. I think it's time for bed, that migraine medication is doing a number on me.

But wait, my most treasured piece of jewelry is my engagement ring. It was my first Tiffany ring. It's not big bling, but so pretty.

Night, night all.

Thank you for your sweet comment! :)

*giggles* I know just want you mean about staring at the bling bling....I can't help but just gaze that this piece of beauty that my faince gave...I think it's more because it symbolized his love for me...and that he chose to ask ME to be his wife!!

Haha, sorry I got a little carried away.... ;-)
