I want this hair!

It's not too far off from it now, but my hair is a lil longer. I think..a cut when I get to the States will finish off the look. I just love it coz I have a styling brush that can do it just like that, plus it looks good curly too (which my hair is v.v.v.v.curly! I hide it well :))

My baby

You are looking at Huntingdon Dog Show's 1st prize winner for most handsome dog. He was pretty shy but he was the most well behaved dog there!! He was against several dogs of all breeds including the most beautiful Neopolitan Mastif I've ever seen. My Mum was so proud of me dog she shed a tear. I am super proud of my lil guy!!


4 June 2009


I just felt really compelled to do a post on some of my friends. I love my friends. I have more special friends than this but these come to mind right now and have meant something really special to me in the last few months. This is a way for you to get to know me. And hey I'm all about making more special friends so if we are ever near (you travel to England or I'm in Springfield, MO 15 June - 5 July) contact me and we'll chat and meet. :)

This is Brent Thornton. He's a good Christian man. He also sings (sounds just like Journey!!). I met him at work two years ago and we've been friends since. He is always there for me, even if we don't talk all the time(coz I'm in the uk right now!). And he's hilarious and we wrestle.

Laura Williams. I met her through Daniel. This year I can tell we are going to have a great summer and time whilst I live in England. We are both singing and playin' musicians and I'm going to practice and write some new songs and I'm going to open for her at a gig. :) I love her!! So much.

The two on the left are my friends Buffy and Trish. They are me good ole Christian girly friends. They are both married with children and have goo honest advice for me. It's a priviledge to have friends like that. I've gone through a bunch in my lifetime already maturing me beyond my years, which probably why I hang out with old(er) people. I enjoy this friendship so much. They are so loving. AND FUUUN!

Of course you all know this is my friend Daniel. Me and Daniel have been close friends for 5 years and we met 8 years ago. We go through rough patches but there is something about our friendship the is fighting to stay together. He's been there for me through some tough stuff.

Last but not least my bub Doug. He's the painter musician that started me painting again. He encouraged me sooo much through it all. I've known him 2 years now. He's a good listener and we can talk or paint for hours together.

There is one of my groups of friends..what about yours?
Also, I'll be in Springfield, MO 15 June - 5 July. Visiting family, friends and being on vacation, so if you live there or near and wanna meet up for maybe a day of shopping and coffee or something let me know. I'll also be seeing Jam Room, Ego Magnet and the Trash Angels so maybe you can come out to a show too.
Love loves!!


My inspiration this week..

These two ladies have really been an inspiration this week to me reg. following your dreams and working hard to make it a career.
Elsie Flannigan.
Leigh-Ann Keffer
And I have been watching Pretty in Pink every night for last month or so. I just love Andie Walsh. She is so inspiring especially for someone like me - who doesn't have a lot of money right now. I love her fashion, I've always had tonnes of pink in my wardrobe and I love it!
I also love the simple fashion and innocents of Ms Hepburn. My friend Megan Jaeger looks very much like her. So beautiful and simple.

I've kind of had a rough couple of weeks. I just wanted to share and encourage you to never give up. Just when you think things couldn't get any worse they can and will. But we are human and we can be broken down several times but it allows us healing time to become stronger and wiser. I don't know what a majority of my readers believe in..I believe in God. I do. I've wept nights this week crying asking myself yo "wake up wake up wake up" because what seemed to be a nightmare was only getting worse and worse..then I pray "I know you can do this Lord, give me a sign. I know you can help me and I know you change this, I believe you have the power to to do anything." and he did. He gave me a sign. Someone the right one, said the words I needed to hear when I needed to hear it. My days are looking up now. And I have God to thank. He is my biggest inspiration of all time!

First gig ever

This was my first gig ever. I was so nervous my voice was shakey, I'm not that great on guitar either. But at least it got me going. I played a few more shows after this with my bf.

The commentary is my old roomate Chelsey. I was so nervous I kept looking at her and making faces etc.

I was a lil upset this night because my boyfriend didn't come out to see me first gig. When I went to his shows alllll the time. No - we are not still together. Thank-goodness.

This was two years ago, I can't believe how much different I look now. Smaller. Hehe .
