My week in review...

My first week away from Parisian and I am missing my girls!! The decision to leave was a hard one but I feel it was for the best! I am loving my new job! 

Day two into the new job began with being hit in the Starbucks parking lot.....Ugh my poor baby!!  She was hit last year in the school parking lot in almost the same spot!!
Made it through the week and I have to admit having a two and a half day weekend every week is going to be nice!! We headed out to St Augustine on Saturday night for dinner with friends at a nice little place called Ned's Southern Kitchen. 

This is so discouraging...after two years the pay off on my car is still so high..Cest la vie....

Can't wait to see what this week holds for me!! Next weekend is Super Bowl!! I am excited!!! WHO ARE YOU CHEERING FOR??

My poor Phyllis!!!

Twice in the past year my poor little Sentra has been targeted !! The first time was in the school parking lot and the second was today in Starbucks parking lot! Both times on the same fender.....whyyyyyy!!!!!! Oh the injustice...Ok so both times it was not much more than a scratch but still. That is my baby!

The day got better though! I finally received my debit card in the mail after being separated from my money for almost two weeks!!! I knew that if I turned it in as lost it would turn up and sure enough it did that very same night!! After it was deactivated of course!!
Well tomorrow is hump day!! And now that I have changed jobs it really is the middle of my week!!!

One Door Closes........

Another opens.....

   Saturday was my last day at a job that I adored. It was hard to say goodbye. I am going to miss my wonderful students, the clients, and the staff!! You are all amazing. I hope that each of you have learned something from me and will carry at least a small part of  me in your hearts as I will.
    I have found a job that I think I will enjoy. It has great benefits and a few perks as well. Wish me luck!!!

Why the Name change?

I began this blog with the idea of writing about my adventures at work. The mishaps, the adventures, the hilarious moments. I soon discovered that some people may not like their mishaps published, the adventures are sometimes quite inappropriate, and the hilarious moments contain a lot of adult humor. Not only that I have a lot more to share than just the beauty school. It is only a small part of who I am and I don't want to be limited!
So I decided that I would make my blog more fitting for me and my personality. I take pride in being a southern girl. I use ma'am and sir, show hospitality, love my sweet tea, think it that chivalry is far from dead and should be instilled in every gentleman at a young age,  I believe that manners are mandatory. I use ya'll and hon often and refer to every one as love.
Being southern is a huge part of who I am so this is it!
I am sure my little logo here will be changing as well but for now it will do 

My messed up day

What a day....
I woke up to a dead cell phone and panicked because the electricians were supposed to call for me to let them in to the school....luckily it was still early!
I wait for them to call. They were supposed to call 45 minutes before they left so I could get across town about the same time they arrived.. I get a call that they had been there fifteen minutes waiting and can I hurry. Not how I like to start my day, but I rush my shower and throw on clothes and rush out to the school.
Later that afternoon I go do do my laundry and when I pull my whites out I realize I had thrown the whole large brand new box of bounce sheets in with them!! Cleaning cardboard out of my clothing was not my idea of fun!
Finally my running almost is done!! I go in the grocery store and come out and surprise I forgot where I parked my car! Blonde moment!
Glad tomorrow is a new day!

Dessert and Dinner....

No Mistake. I meant to put Dessert first. After all a girl has to have her priorities!!

It's Monday which is my last day off this week. My boyfriend has been working long hours and not sleeping very well so I am going to make him a yummy dinner and am looking for a special dessert. I ran across this recipe at I think I will give them a try and see how they turn out!!

I wish my weekend started on Friday night like some peoples... But no I have to wait till Saturday at 2...or 3...or 4. With my job it depends on when we get done with our clients for the day. Then finally it's Sunday and I get to sleep in and spend the day with my most amazingly wonderful boyfriend!!! I love Sundays!!!

I am trying so hard to watch what I eat and how much I eat. Mainly how much I eat. I have been doing fairly well and I am very proud of my self. Yay go me! Tonight was sushi night! I have been craving it for three days so I was very happy to finally have some! How I made it 41 years with out trying that stuff I don't know. I love it!

Dress shopping tomorrow! I love shopping. According to my daughter I shop every single day of my life. I wanted to deny this but since I was in a store shopping when she said it I didn't think it was a wise thing to do :). I have to find a dress for a banquet on Valentines weekend and I get very discouraged when I try on clothes…

Matte Liquid Sand Polish!!!!
My review of Mariah Carey's new line from OPI.
Had my nails done in "The Impossible" from Mariah Carey's new OPI Line! It was awesome! It went on shiny....I was a bit worried because it is supposed to be a matte color. Slowly as it dried it reached the matte stage and it looked great! (the color dried a bit darker on my nail than it did on the swatch that was attached to the display.)
The reflective sand in it gives a slight sparkle that really shows up against the matte color. It was a bit rough at first but with in the first two days smoothed out and wasn't annoying. It wore well and didn't chip or peel. 
Now came the next question everyone had asked me.....How easy was it to take off?? We have all had the glitter polish that just didn't want to give up the fight and leave our nails. Not a problem with this polish! It came off fairly easy and didn't leave color or sparkle behind! 
I give this polish a big thumbs up. It a…
