New Construction

Today my husband and I worked at our new home.  We spent most of the evening sweeping and cleaning up the drywall dust and scraps.  I had so much fun just being there, even though its not quite finished yet.  It is so exciting to me that we are able to build our first home.  It's amazing to me just how quickly it is all going up.  Looking at pictures from three months ago, it doesn't even look like the same construction.  It will definitely be an exciting day when we are able to move in and be home. 

Yesterday was a pretty exciting day for me at school.  I finalized my application and video interview for the Matrix Spread the Love entry and sent it in.  November 1st can't come soon enough!!!  This opportunity to travel with top stylists and learn from them is an amazing thing that doesn't come around too often!!  I know I would be a great choice and I hope they choose me...they won't be sorry! :)

Yesterday was my husband's birthday.  We spent the entire day together, it was great!!  He got so many great Birthday wishes from my family and several of our friends.  The saddest thing was that today we realized that his own sister and brother didn't wish him a happy birthday.  This just reaffirms just how much I am thankful for my great family and friends who always think of him as well as me.  Both groups see him as their friend and family.  I was sad for him because I knew it made him sad that they didn't even call or text. 

It just goes to show that the little things do indeed matter.  Those little things, simple as they may be, make or break someone's day.  I encourage everyone to remember the little things...the birthdays, anniversaries, and other occasions that are important to your friends and family.

Today I got my color done and it looks fabulous!  I also did my friends hair at school...a fellow student.  Her hair looks equally as fabulous!  When I do color, I almost have an out of body experience...I feel as if I'm painting a masterpiece in the hair.  I love that feeling!!  It hit me today that I'm still the artist, just that my medium has changed from oil paints to hair color and my canvas is no longer stretched over wood but its a clients hair.  I love that I made this career change.   I love that I have the ability to make someone feel great about themselves by creating a beautiful design with color and a new style in their hair!

Fashion Show

Tonight was our school's fashion show.  The theme was New York Fashion Week.  It was so  much fun!!  I was a little bummed because I didn't place, but that lasted only a minute.  I had a great time working and designing my hairstyle for my model.  This sort of thing just gets me more and more excited about the field and my future plans!!!  I am so glad I made this change and career move. 

I realized today that I'm so focused on this passion of mine.  I wonder if anyone else is in the same boat...I go to sleep thinking about cosmetology and I wake up thinking about it.  I am so happy that I have this type of passion about my career and future!!

It's been a long day and evening.  I could do this every day!!  I love it!

New Blog

So, this is a new thing for me...a blog.  I'm kind of excited to get this started and a little nervous at the same time.  I have always wanted to get a blog, just never did because not really sure how many people, if any, want to read about the daily tidbits in my life.  I suppose I should start with who I am and what is in my life, etc. 

I am a cosmetology student at the moment and on the verge of graduation.  I am very excited to be finished soon and to be out in the field.  I have always loved cosmetology and the art behind it.  I am thrilled that I finally made the move and decision to pursue my passion! 

I have an amazing husband and family who support me in my dreams daily.  I know I couldn't have done half the things in my life without them.  They are my rock!

So, enough about me....what's new with you??  :)
