Explain this to me...

How can a guy wearing a leather six pack and a skirt be sooo sexy?!?!

All right, so Sam Worthington has made it to my List of Five. He has been floating around number 6 or 7 there for a while because of Avatar, but watching Clash of the Titans just jumped him right into a top 5 spot. It is ridiculous how sexy that outfit is. He is wearing a skirt for goodness sake, but my word, it is sexy!

Now, because it is so attractive to me, I decided to add a few more sexy pictures for your viewing pleasure...and mine!

Russell Crowe in Gladiator. Now, he isn't wearing a leather six pack but he is still wearing a skirt...and still yummy!

All right, here we have Eric Bana, Brad Pitt, and Orlando Bloom from Troy. Not the sexiest group of men in my personal opinion, but put them in skirts and they become three very luring pieces of man meat. That should be disturbing, but it isn't.

Just to clarify, the only man in a skirt that is attractive is one that is portraying someone from ancient times.

I love Patrick Swayze, but putting him in a skirt in To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar does NOT make him sexy. It makes him a drag queen. And NOT what I am talking about in this blog.

These men from ancient times were warriors, the best of the best, and yet they were wearing skirts. I just LOVE them. I love the outfits.

Am I the only one who thinks this or are there others? Come on, ladies, tell me I'm not alone!!

I love my hair!

The longer my hair gets, the more I love it. I have always wanted to have really long hair, like coming down to the middle of my back, but I never liked the way it looked so I would cut it off short again. But now, I am going about it the right way.
I've never liked a lot of short layers, instead going for long layers in the bottom of my hair, and that has been the problem. Short layers are the key to my hair's success right now. The longest part of my hair comes past my collar bones and the shortest layers touches about the top of my ear. It makes my super thick hair lay just right and I love it. I can fix it completely straight or flip it out and even straighten it under for a little more body. I love it!
I have bangs too but I am trying to let them grow out. I might change my mind and cut them again because I really like them, but I'm not sure yet. I have just been parting my hair to fix it instead of pulling my bangs forward and I think it looks a lot better.
I pulled it back yesterday in a clip because I took a shower in the morning and didn't have time to do anything with it. When I let my hair dry naturally, it gets really frizzy and poofy and yucky, so I twisted it all back in a large clip and it looked awesome! Some of my bangs fell forward so I just sprayed the crap out of it with hairspray and it was great.
Yes, it does take about 30 minutes to straighten my hair once it is completely dry, but I have got that down to an art form. haha. And I know the longer it is the longer it will take to fix, but the longer it gets, the more I can do with it while it is natural instead of straightened. I cannot wait until it is grown out to the length I want it.

This is the style that I was looking at when I decided to grow my hair out long. This is the length I am going for or maybe even a little longer...not insanely long though. My hair is a lot thicker than hers so it will look different of course, but this is basically it. I would love for mine to be this color too but it won't be this white. I think I am going to let my natural color grow out and just add a lot of white highlights in it and be good to go!
What do you guys think? My bestie Ally told me she thinks mine will look good like you all agree??

That title doesn't mean this post is going to be boring, although it might be, I put that as the title because that is how I feel. Boring. I think that might be the reason behind all of my actions that are making me feel the way that I am. I have a very boring life. I don't do anything and I don't feel fun anymore. I'm ordinary. I know so many people that are interesting and fun and I'm a bit jealous. I am hoping that once I start on my scuba classes and get to be an instructor that I will feel like I have something to offer. Not a lot of people know how to scuba dive and they definitely aren't instructors so that will be a quality about myself that I will feel proud of. It will make me interesting again.
I think that because I feel boring, I have wanted to go out a lot more and hang out and I suppose just act like I am single and don't have any kids...and then that makes me feel like an awful mother and an awful wife. Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? Does anyone else feel like their life is boring? I guess I just get so run down doing the same old thing every day having pity party after pity party. Does anyone have any suggestions what I should do?

It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to

I ended up going to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner with a few friends and then we went downtown to Corned Beef & Co. to dance. It was a lot of fun. Yesterday, we woke up and went to church and then out to lunch at Texas Steakhouse with my family. We went back to mom and dad's and just hung out for a while with my family.
When Gabriel fell asleep at mom's, Josh and I went to Barnes & Noble and then to Taco Bell for dinner. To some people, that might not sound like a very fun date, but it was exactly what I wanted to do. Well, everything was going great until we started talking about some things. I was going to go into detail about everything but I think I will just vent a little bit and go from there.
It is no secret that I am a horrible wife. I have basically come to terms with this but the fact that my parents keep making comments about how horrible I am for not cooking every night for my husband and not keeping my house completely and totally spotless doesn't help me. I know the house is supposed to stay clean and I know my husband is supposed to come home to a wonderful five course dinner, but that just isn't going to happen. I hate cooking. If I never had to cook anything ever again for as long as I live, I would be the happiest person alive.
I just hate having to hear from my parents how much I am lacking in my wifely duties. Or getting 'subtle' hints about how a wife shouldn't go out without her husband. Sure, I would have loved for Josh to come out with me on Saturday night, but he didn't want to. I suppose in my mom's mind I should have just stayed home. And maybe I should have, but staying at home all the time is what I do every day and it is driving me crazy. I am still trying to save up to take those classes so I can start working, but that isn't really working out.
This post isn't really what I thought I was going to write about but I just wrote and this is what came out. I guess I will try to make sense of it later.

My birthday is tomorrow and we aren't really celebrating this weekend because Tyler isn't here. We are going to lunch with some of my family after church but that is it. Tyler comes home on Friday so we are going to go out and do something next weekend for my birthday even though I don't really know what we are going to do. So, I thought it would be fun to just go out with some friends tonight and have fun. I guess because it was such short notice that not a lot of people are able to go. And I know that everyone has a busy life...I do too...but I kinda hoped more people would want to go out and do something. I might just go do something by myself since I don't have a lot of alone time or I might just cancel and stay home. I don't know. I keep texting people and writing stuff on Facebook about it but no one is giving me definite answers except for 'no'.

I don't guess I would really mind just going somewhere and eating by myself and maybe going to Barnes & Noble by myself and just reading and looking at books and enjoying the silence. If no one can go out then that is what I will be doing. I might even go see a movie by myself. I might as well do something. Josh is keeping Gabriel because I didn't want to ask my parents to watch him again. I feel like they are always watching him and I just feel bad. I know they don't mind but he is a lot to handle. I don't want them to get run down. Well, I guess I will figure it out as the day goes on.

So, I threw a Premier Jewelry party on August 9th and I got a lot of free jewelry and half priced jewelry and I just couldn't wait to get it in. My birthday is on Sunday so the jewelry is my present to myself. It finally came in today and here is a picture of everyone's orders.

These boxes are filled with just my jewelry. I got all of this for a little over $100. I couldn't believe it and I was so excited about it all.

And here it all is spread out for everyone to see. Two rings, one bracelet by itself, one necklace by itself, two sets of a necklace bracelet and earrings, one set of a necklace and earrings, and pearls that are 90 inches long. They are gorgeous! This picture doesn't do it all justice of course because they aren't close up but I am so excited about getting it all in.

I'm back!

Hello there! I know it has been a while since I have written but that is because we were behind on our bill and they cut off our internet. But we are caught up again and good to go. I will write more tomorrow but I just wanted to stop by and say HI! and that I haven't forgotten about you, my wonderful blogger buddies!

I'm sure that most everyone that will read this blog has taken a test of some kind to see which Disney Princess you are most like. I know I have. And every time I take it, I get the same result. Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Which, let's face it, is right on the money. She is the bookworm so of course that would be me. But I have always wanted to be like Ariel because she spends her life underwater. That's why I love that picture. It shows all of the princesses as mermaids. Yes, of course, I am always going to be more like Belle than any of the other princesses, but I will always want to be a mermaid.

Imagine how awesome it would be to be a mermaid. Swimming all day every day. Breathing underwater. Interacting with all kinds of underwater creatures. Now, if there really were such things as mermaids, I can't imagine that they would actually be able to talk to fish like they do in The Little Mermaid. I'm not even sure they would be able to talk to each other. Would they have some kind of telepathy? That is the only way I can see it. I mean, come on. You wouldn't be able to understand a word they said underwater. It would be so muffled. Unless they had some sort of super hearing.

Would they have a type of echolocation? That would be awesome! I mean, they would have to have some kind of senses that would help them know when predators were close, right? If they didn't, I can't imagine they would have very long lives. Another mind boggling mermaid question. How on earth do they mate? Seriously. Obviously they wouldn't be able to mate like humans for the simple fact that...well...they are missing the organs needed for such a task. Just curious...haha.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Mine, of course, is to have the ability to breathe underwater. If you could be any mythological creature, which would you be? Mine, duh, is a mermaid. So what about you guys, my blogger buddies?

No idea

Well, the bachelorette party went well. We had a blast. The only bad thing about the whole weekend is the fact that I got no sleep. I have caught up on my sleep a little bit since then, thank goodness, and I will post pictures once I get the good ones from my friend and fellow bridesmaid who took them. The ones I took were all right but I didn't get any after we left the hotel room to go to AP's. She took a million and they were all wonderful!! So I will post them later.

I really have nothing to write but I hate going long periods of time without blogging. I guess I can talk about books or my story. I don't really want to talk too much about my story until I really start getting into it.

I finished Meg: Primal Waters last night. It is the third book in the Meg series by Steve Alten. I also started reading the fourth book, Meg: Hell's Aquarium, and so far it is just as great as the others. My brother got me hooked on the first two, Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror and The Trench, and I read them about ten times each before the third one came out.

I have so many books that I have and haven't read yet that I'm not even sure where to begin. They all look so great. Cleopatra's Daughter that I just finished last week was so great. I cried like a baby. I love books that make me cry because it doesn't happen very often. Movies make me cry all the time but there are very few books that I have cried while reading.

So Tyler left for California on Sunday while I was still in North Carolina. It really sucked that I wasn't there at the airport to say goodbye to him. He will only be gone a month, but that means that he is going to miss my birthday. He told me that he wanted to take me out when he gets back to celebrate my birthday and that sounds good to me! But I'm not sure where we should go. I asked him if other people could come and he said, "I'm only paying for you, but I don't care how many people come." haha.

Josh is redoing my parent's bathroom and he is going to be working there after he gets off work every day this week and won't be home until like midnight. My mom is so excited about getting a new bathroom. She says it feels like Christmas. He is changing everything. A new shower, new sink, new floors, new everything. It is going to look great. I was hoping that after he did theirs, he could redo ours. I want a claw foot tub where our little bitty shower is now and a huge shower where our garden tub is now. I'm not sure that is what I am going to get, but a bigger shower would be better than anything.

Yeah, so I didn't know this entry would be so random, but there you have it. I will write more later and hopefully I will have a topic to write on. haha.
