Decisions Decisions: I Need A Haircut, Like Yesterday.

Here's something shoulder length.

Mid neck length

Mid shoulder blade length


Then last June at my high school reunion, 5 years.

And this is just a few weeks ago.

It's been since last June and I need a HAIRCUT badly.  I like the shoulder length one at the top but the shorter it gets the less my hubby likes it.  So I want to keep it between mid-neck and shoulder length.  Here's another question< should I go with layers?   I may even have her highlight it some because well it's summer. 

So tell me what you think because I need to make the appointment soon.

WriteGal: Blush Topless Undershirt Contest

writegalChristy, The Write Gal has a wonderful contest going on.  I've seen these EVERYWHERE and would love to have one for myself.  Visit Blush and then go back to The Write Gal for contest details.  I like the purple one along with the ones with lace on them.

WW Edition: 3.18


This pup has been with us since two months before Connor was born.  When we bought her she was nine months old and now she's been having lower back/hip issues.  We aren't sure why but we are hoping to get some answers when we take her to the vet in the next few days.

I've gotten attached even though she drives me bonkers and I can't stand her sometimes.  It just sucks.  She's been around the boys since Connor was born and that's been three and half years.  I just hope I don't hear these words: You're gonna have to put her to sleep. UGH I can't do it.  Just send up some prayers or good thoughts please.

So sign Mr. Linky and visit here, here, and here and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

CSI: New York!

csi_ny_aboteaserI watched lasts nights episode and have been wanting to post about a few of the hotties that play on the show.  One being Gary Sinise!!! OMG! YUMMY! He played the Lt Dan Taylor in Forrest Gump.  He plagarysys Detective Mac Taylor on Crime Scene Investigation New York.  I'm sure you're wondering what is wrong with this girl.  Well, Gary is one of those men that just has that appeal to me.  I grew up watching him in movies and now he can come into my house every wednesday night and just show me those beautiful eyes and I melt right there on the couch.

carmine-giovinazzoThere's also Carmine Giovinazzo who plays Danny Messer.  At first I wasn't sure, but last night watching the show, man his baby blues just mezmorised me.  These are two men that I could watch all day long!  Heck they are two men that are wonkable.  Yes, that word is exactly what you think it means.  I've aquired it from a few friends that have been there for me through all the hard times a young couple goes through after getting married and having kids.

Anyway, these two men are my favorites off of CSI: New York.  Who are some of your TV favorites?

To Donate or Not To Donate?

That is the question?
Watching the Dateline special with Nadya's interview  got me thinking. I understand both sides of the issue very well even though I've only had two kids. IT IS HARD! And with 14 that'll been even harder with the economy at the moment.  I agree she should've stopped at the last two she had which are the twins. Which leads me to ask this next question: Couldn't she have donated her embryos to a couple that are having fertility issues?  Honestly that would have been the better choice in my opinion because not only would she be giving someone else a chance to have a family, she would be saving herself and her kids the financial struggle they will have to endure. According to the Dateline interview, people can go online to donate to the family. Honestly why would we want to donate to her? She did this to herself and she has to find her own way. She has to have other family members that would love to raise a few kids.

I also don't see how people can be so rude about having so many kids. There is the Duggar Family on television that I have not heard ONE bad comment about and they have 18 KIDS. I know a mom who has five kids and I know she wouldn't have it any other way no matter what happens in this world. Yet the comments towards Nadya and her 14 kids just irritate me. I understand what she did was irresponsible a little but leave the rude comments behind. There's enough rudeness in the world why do we have to treat her with it. Rude people have no place to say what is right and wrong in other people's lives. Worry about your own life and who is in it.
