What is That Doing in Your Yard?

A couple of weeks ago, I came home and noticed a for sale sign in the yard of my neighbors across the street.  I guess I should have gotten a hint when, I saw the house getting paint, but I just thought that they were improving their house. Well they were...to sell. I know that it is the time of year to sell especially with the school year about to begin in my school district. It got me thinking, why are you selling? Is there something going on in the neighborhood I should know about? Was I not a good neighbor?

When I see a for sale it also makes me think about, will I ever sell my house? I asked my husband
about it and the response I got was, "No, I worked to hard on my yard." Oh, I thought in my head. I really like my neighborhood and the most of the people in my court have been there for several years. I have seen people come and go due to foreclosure(yes I am the nosy neighbor that looks things up on the auditors site), new jobs or just selling due purchasing another home.

I must admit I am a little anxious about potential new neighbors. I really appreciate the current neighbors quietness, friendliness and conformity to the street. I am hoping that when selling they take into consideration the neighborhood, but I sure that is not their first thought (best offer). They have been good neighbors and home the potential new residences are the same.

The Misadventures of False Eyelashes

 I have been wanting to try false eyelashes for a long time. I purchased them awhile ago but I just did not put them on. I have not wore them since my "trash the dress" photo shoot after my wedding. I watched several YouTube videos to see how it was done. After about 5 videos.....I settled on this one by makeupDOLL that I thought was easy and decided to give it a try.

The right eye was easy and I did not seem to have any issues. The left eye was another story. I put it on and took it off and did it again. I glued the lash upside down. I glued to close to the top of my lid. I did not allow the glue to get tacky enough, so the lash slid down a little bit. It was a mess. After about an half an hour I think I got the lash in position.

This is the final look.
 I like how it turned out. To bad it did not last long since I took the little one swimming and one of my lashes ended up on sideways on my lid and then they both ended up on the seat car on the way home so I could see.

I think that I will try them again since I liked the look. I might have to review a few more YouTube videos since practice makes perfect or I might just leave it to the professionals.

We Have Made A Decision......

Myrtle Beach
We will be sitting in these for our family vacation.  Last year we did a staycation and took a few day trips but this year we are heading to Myrtle Beach. I am looking forward to it, especially since the little has been asking for a year to go to the beach. We just need sometime to just relax, spend time together and explore. I have heard good things about it and it seems like everyone was going there a few years ago (so I am a bit late). I know I want to take Miss G to the aquarium there, but I do not know what else to do there besides sitting on the beach (which is a good thing).  If you have any suggestions of restaurants, places to see or things to do let me know, the internet can tell you so much, your suggestions or experiences are much more beneficial.  I am so excited and can not wait to make new family memories.

Dear Hate.....

Dear Hate,

Why do you exists? Why do you continue to destroy lives, hearts and minds? First there was Matthew, then there was Rodney, Trayvon, Freddie , Charleston shooting victims and now Sandy. All these were living, breathing people that someone decided to beat until they were hospitalized or until death all because of you. Why are you so important to some people? What makes someones skin color, gender or sexual orientation so important to others that they are will to harm for it? Now because of you their families have to live without them, Without their smiles. Their laughter. Their hugs. All because of you. Why hate someone if they are not bothering you? If you are not sleeping with them or interacting with them why do you care?

Hate I hate you. I was taught to never use you as a child, but I think it is fitting here. Hate I want you to know that all lives matter no matter what they are doing. Even if you think that they are a good or bad person, they are important to someone, even if they are not important to you. Even if you think that their skin color is wrong, their life still matters. Even if you think what they are doing is wrong, judge yourself first and still know that their life matters. How about this hate, get your life and leave other lives alone.

Hate I want you think about how your family and friends would feel if you were gone. Would they be sad like Matthew, Rodney, Trayvon, Freddie, Charleston shooting victims and Sandy's families and friends are? I think so. Hate, I want you to think about your actions, prior to using your words or your physical force. I know you have been around for along time, but it seems like you have been poking your ugly head around alot more lately. Don't you need a vacation? Think about it.

As I end this letter to you Hate, I want you know what even though you keep coming around, there will always be people in this world who will be fighting and praying against you to make this world a better place. I personally believe that there are more of us than there are friends of yours, so watch out.
