This guy i know...

Hello there! Today I wanted to do a post about this amazing guy I know. He is kind, funny, handsome, and caring. He also happens to be my husband ❤ I feel the need to take the time to write about him today because I don't think he gets enough credit for how amazing he really is.

Now I am by no means a high maintenance kind of chick. With that being said, I am a little on the crazy side when it come to certain things. I have sensitive feelers and my emotions run extremely high sometimes, to the point where I often question my sanity! It's bad enough being in my own head dealing with all this b.s., but then the husband has to deal with it too and that just isn't fair. He is not the type of guy who shows his emotions very well (other than anger and frustration) and he is not the best at sympathizing with someone or comforting them. He does his best though and I am learning to just be happy with the little bit that I get, because he does do so many things for me that make me happy.

I have been married to this man for 4 years now, together for 6 and if there is one thing I have learned it is to be patient. We get frustrated with each other and sometimes get sick of each other...that's totally normal! Another thing I have learned is to appreciate the little things. There are so many special moments I have with him and I know he doesn't think they are a big deal, but they are to me. He just took me out to the pumpkin patch earlier this week and let me pick out this giant 34 pound pumpkin. He waited patiently while I snapped some pictures and loved on the sweet miniature horses. He waits for me because he loves me and he wants me to be happy. This has to go both ways though! I will often go "help" him work on the vehicles and even though I really am not that big of a help, I am still out there taking interest in something he enjoys. You don't have to love everything the other person loves, but you should at least try to take some interest in it or at the very least support them.

My husband is a complicated man, but he is kind and he is honest and he is real. He is the type of guy that will always have your back in any situation. I have seen him help so many people, some he didn't even know. When we are little girls we always read the stories about the princess meeting her prince charming who is beautiful and perfect and sweeps her off her feet. This might be realistic for some people, but for the rest of us there is a real life version of prince charming. Mine I met in my brothers kitchen late one hot August night. I was sweaty and nasty after dancing my ass off to Joan Jett and the Blackhearts at the fair. I saw him and stopped dead in my tracks. He was buff and oh was he gorgeous, I think I melted into a puddle right there on the floor in front of him. We ended up spending the night slightly drunk and arguing about Johnny Cash and Nine Inch Nails. We fell asleep on the floor together and the bastard snuck out the door while I was sleeping, not even a goodbye. Being the crazy person I am though, I tracked him down and the rest is history.

The point to this long random story is to find your real prince charming. He is the man who will love you unconditionally no matter what your flaws are or what life throws your way. He will be kind and sweet, but will also drive you mad. If you find the guy that you want to punch in the face but kiss fiercely at the same time...keep him! He will make you happy!

Until next time....

Fall again...

It's that time of year again. Time for pumpkins, leaves, cozy sweaters, and hot cocoa. Oh and it's time for me to create new Halloween looks! I have ALWAYS had a deep crazy love for Halloween and all things scary/horror. I got that love from my father, so shout out to that cool cat ;) He used to dress up when he took us trick or treating and I always remember him decking out the house to make it look spooky. As I got older I started getting more into doing Halloween makeup and that has stuck with me. I watch TONS of youtube tutorials and am always amazed at how well these people transform themselves into someone or something else.

In the past I have done simple things that just involved eyeshadows and such, but the last couple of years I have started learning how to use things like liquid latex.  I am learning though that there are so many possibilities with just good makeup and brushes. This year I have decided to be Billy, the doll from Jigsaw. It's a super simple costume and really easy makeup. I will definitely be including picture from when I dress up for the annual Halloween party we go to! In the mean time though, here are some looks from previous years. Let me know what you think. Things I should try or avoid. I would love to hear your opinion!

One of the first look I ever did!

sometimes the hubby lets me do his makeup too :)
As you can see I typically stick with some sort of gore look, but about every other year or third year I will do something different just to switch it up a little. Probably not going to be any gore this year...but then who knows!

Until next time...

Starting over

So I started this blog a few years ago and never really did much with it. I would post random things occasionally, but didn't care too much about posting regularly. I would like that to change. So what I decided to do is delete all of my old posts (trust me they weren't a loss) and start all over fresh and new. I want this to be a sort of documentation of my life and I want to share things on here. Things that I learn along the way and just everyday living kind of stuff.

I do have an array of health problems and so, live a pretty healthy lifestyle. I am often asked what I do to keep healthy and thin, in this blog I want to share my secrets (which are not so secret). I do love this life I live and I want to do all that I can to stay here as long as I can. I am a lover of essential oils and all things natural!! Unlike most people these days, I do not take many prescriptions and stay the hell away from processed junk as much as possible.

I am married and have two beautiful doggies who are my babies. I will be including them in my blog postings of course. My husband likes to live the same kind of lifestyle I do which makes it SO MUCH EASIER!!!! When you have a support system in place it is 100 times easier to stick to things like meal plans and workout goals. Those kinds of things are extremely hard to do on your own and that is why so many people fail, because they don't have anyone cheering them on or doing it right there with them.

I hope you all keep tuned in to what I am doing and I hope you find this blog both entertaining and helpful :)

until next time....
