Bangin' Sister!

I find that I am going through a lot of changes in my life recently and along with them I decided to change my hair as well. I generally had the tendency to go for a nice clean cut, nothing special. Over the years I also avoided bangs because they always made me look so young. I am now at the ripe old age of 27 and that 'young thing' no longer bothers me. As Sean was ripping grays out of my head yesterday I decided to cut my bangs! So far the jury is still out as to whether or not I like them. Sean LOVES my hair. Its fun, its young, its edgy. My mother DISLIKES my hair. My father LIKES my hair. He had a smile on. He didnt ask who vandalized my head, thats a great clue to his feelings. I tried to take a self portrait this morning to show everyone my hair but things were not working out for me. Honestly, I just couldnt be bothered to fool around with it. SO here is a not in focus but still oh so artsy photograph that I took. Add some drama with my Black and White Photography PS Action, again addicted to this action!
Another great thing, a young man that was in Tim Horton's told me that I was 25. Gee! I know its only two years but when I am 30, that will be a good thing. lol I know everyone out there is telling me to shut up because I am so darn young! What is it that they say? Still wet behind the ears? I know that comes from somewhere but I am not sure where. I dont like it though. Its an ugly saying.
I created a layout for a challenge by Sayo at the Guild this week. The challenge was to create a layout using the word begin. Here is my layout of my handsome man.

GREY'S IS BACK!!! Tonight is the night and I am oh so thrilled! I cannot WAIT to see what happens. :) Its a glorious day.
Does anyone else HATE that stupid Monistat commercial on TV these days? Those angry/happy talk bubbles coming out of the women's vaginas? I mean COME ON how horrible is that? Dumb. Of course, someone got rich off of that idea and it amazes me. Goes along the same line as HAVE A HAPPY PERIOD on my pad liner. Seriously, that annoys me every month. Is that sad? lol
I think today I am going to start on my garbage window. I have a game plan. Whoot whoot. MICHAELS is coming!! YAY! Its opening on SATURDAY! Therefore, no one will see me the entire weekend. :D I have a list a mile long of goodies I want to buy. I wont. I want too though. Its like heaven on Earth, baby. Heaven on Earth.
Today's blog post is a lot like having a conversation with me. Crazy, unorganized, rambling, weird nonsense. :) If only my blog had one of these weird Eastern accents like I do. ;)
