Cos School

I have a confession. I've been a bad blogger again. Ok, not really a confession because you all know that already from my lack of writing. My most sincere apologies. I have been so busy lately and at night I like to just sit and unwind and rot my brain with tv (instead of clean my house, which is what I should do...) and I have just not written. Fail, I know.

I have just got to say, I love my cosmetology school. I'm going to Miller-Motte College in Jacksonville. I've got a fantastic instructor and a class full of fun people. I look forward to going to school and learning. School refreshes me and I just get so excited to be there. I'm doing really well and just loving it. In the afternoons I've been keeping up with friends and doing some writing for DStripped of course, not giving that up :) I am learning all kinds of new things and every day I get more excited to become a real stylist!!

Ariana is in a day care center that I really like and she seems to really enjoy as well. I like that she is having social interaction with other kids. She's becoming such a big girl and I am just so proud of her. The center is SPEC and I really like the teachers and the set up of the center, definitely reminds me a lot of the DoD centers I worked in and they were top of the line so I am good with it. And it's always exciting to see her after school and how happy she is to see me. That's an awesome feeling.

I have good days and bad days and with VDay approaching I've been a little funky but with school and staying busy I haven't had much time to think of the lover's holiday or my lack of a Valentine and that's the way I like it. I know I've got a Valentine in Heaven and I don't put much thought into the rest, just another day.

In school we've been working on roller sets and with that we learned about teasing. So I will leave you all with this fantastic photo of me being the model for a bee hive. I definitely think the bee hive is a look that needs to come back, after I rocked it today. And yes, before you ask, it's all my real hair, no extensions, no falsies ;)

  9. I could not do cosmetology! I'm lucky if I get my EYE LINER on right! But the beehive look is super cute, especially with the silk rose!

  10. You look great! I don't know if you're old enough to remember a New Wave group by the name of "The B-52's," but your bee hive totally reminds me of them.

  15. I like to make valentines day about my son. Yeah it is a love day but we usually end up in a fight and there is just too much pressure. So we turned it into a family love day so it includes the little man... And i love the picture of your hair.. Its too cute :)

  16. That is awesome! I loved cosmo school but injured my back and couldn't stand for a long amount of time so I quit. Plus, I realized I enjoyed playing with hair more than cutting lol. I'm soo glad you enjoy it and have found something to do and bring you joy!!

  25. How do you do the beehive?! I went to a salon AND a cosmetology school before prom my senior year to ask if they could do a beehive and they both said no! They said they needed the bumpits to do it, and at the time I didn't have them!

  35. You don't know me but since your husbands death, I have been following your blog. I knew Johnny when he was just a baby; I lived down the street and Sonya was one of my best friends. Anyway, I am also a military spouse. My husband is currently deployed and I also live in Jax. I have a 1 and a 2 yr old boy. If you ever want to meet up, please let me know. My e-mail is doctoramyhoyt@yahoo.com. Take care. You are an amazingly strong woman and I'm glad you like school and have found a good daycare for Ariana.
