On An Upbeat Note

I realized I've been kind of whiny in my last few posts.
So this post is going to be about the things that are currently making me happy.

Someone please look at my cake blog http://4theluvofcake.blogspot.com/ , notice anything new?! How cute is the new design!! One of my best friends, Kelly, is a graphic designer...and I pretty much adore her work. I finally broke down and asked her to work her magic on my cake blog, I flat gave up! I can design a cake but heaven help me when it comes to computers!! My computer designing skills go as far as the "paint" program that comes standard on any computer...yeah, it's sad.
I love it! Let me know what you think. Also, check out her blog http://www.kellykguk.blogspot.com/ , she can design just about anything for any occasion!

I don't know if any of you have seen me in person lately, but my hair is between "oh my gosh, did you see her hair..that is sad, bless her heart!?" and "runnnnnnnn it's a wild, crazy, hairy thing!!" Uhm, yeah, it's pretty bad. I have had my hair Japanese straightened since...well, since the first year I lived in Hawaii, so almost 5 years now. I can. not. express. how amazing the transformation was! I vowed then to NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER not get my hair Japanese straightened. It was worth every, single, little, very expensive, penny!! My long time friends and family can vouch for this. When I moved back to Columbia I had a hard time finding a very reputable, professional, years of experience hair stylist, that offered Japanese straightening. I went through two, very sad, process with a hair salon in downtown Columbia, that while they DID straighten my hair, they also managed to break off lots of hair around the nape of my neck and in the bang area. It was sad, but thankfully I have VERY thick hair, and could cover it up easily...so I actually went to the salon twice before I finally decided enough was enough and I NEEDED to find a better salon!! It has taken me months of research but I think I have finally found her! http://www.straightasstring.com/ . I have an appointment with her tomorrow and, fingers crossed, I will FINALLY be on my way to a much calmer, smoother, silkier, non-frightening for small children, hair style!!

My mother bought me a few bags of tulip bulbs last fall and Sevy graciously planted them. Today, we have the most amazing tulips around Matt's mailbox. I LOVE spring, it is my favorite time of the year! I'm ready for green grass, flowers in bloom and birds chirping!! For me, it's the most inspiring time of year!
