It all falls into place…

There are 103 days and a few hours until I am a married woman. Gasp! Quinton and I were engaged for a few days when my mom and aunt started suggesting wedding dates and places. I was standing outside of my new salon, talking to my mom when she suggested a New Years Eve wedding/party….

I can’t even breathe!

I don’t even know where to start. Five years ago? I was working at my dream salon as an assistant and waiting tables, I was bleaching more counters than hair. I never would have guessed that the man I knew only as my friend’s boyfriend was going to have such an impact on my life….

I went camping and lived to tell about it!

For years, my friend Kate has tried to drag me, against my will, into what she would call The Great Outdoors. By means of hiking, camping, or general wandering, she has used all means of mind powers to get me to accompany her on these escapades. For nearly five years I have declined countless invitations…

I’m already blushing…

Remember the dating rules blogs? Remember specifically the one that said not to have sex with these fools you were dating? (If you are new here, it is this one: http://wp.me/p2GXV8-58 ). Well things are about to get crazy so grab a glass of wine and let’s get down to business. In that blog I…

Love and War

When I was in high school my dad tried once to really get inside a young girl’s noggin. He was struggling to  understand WHY I was breaking up with my seemingly harmless boyfriend. I gave him my best synopsis and he stared intently into my eyes. When he repeated the scenario back to me, he…

The Piano Man

I had all of the starts of a  terrible, horrible,  no good, very bad day on May 18th (if you picked up on that literary reference, your childhood was awesome).  Somehow I had managed to break my car key IN HALF, thus locking all of my tools for work in my car. Now, when you…

The white owl and the Trampage

The last week has been I.N.S.A.N.E. After my last post about Sugar Baby, the little Maltese Aly and I found on the freeway, momentum has been non-stop. If we are going to be honest, the vortex started before that. Life is both nutty and wonderful.  A couple of months ago Aly, Kate and I took…

You are so very valuable!

First of all, I would like to say a big, fat thank you to you guys! I made a deal with myself at the beginning of this silly blog that if I made it to 25 posts with any margin of success, I would purchase my domain for the site. Well, The Art of the…

The Art of the Start Over

My girlfriend told me today about a friend of hers that just broke up with her boyfriend of seven years. They had started dating right out of high school and this poor girl was devastated by the concept of starting her life over as an adult.  After the break up she had literally gone on…

P.S. Mr. Nice Guy.

My friend Kevin summed up the Nice Guy confusion after the last post in one very clear thought, “… He is just befuddled by the ungodly Douchery of the men she does date especially when combined with the constant ‘I wish I could meet a *good* man’ bullshit.” Well, Kev, that door does seem to…

Dear, Mr. Nice Guy.

A while back I started blogging about dating. I know, I know… Sometimes I just laugh myself to sleep over that one too… Well over some time I have received some pretty cool feedback on those blogs and the success stories that have come from people following my (blind but well intended) advice. This week…
