Pray for the World....

Getting back into this blogging thing is proving tougher then expected but we are going to power through and hope for the best! I really enjoy blogging but sometimes I just feel like I don't have anything to say or I just do not feel like sitting down in front of the computer and actually writing out a post. So I want to say thanks to those who are still reading my blog and hello to some of the new readers! Please bear with me with me while I get my blogging mojo back! I feel it is coming back but it isn't quite here yet!

I have some ideas for some holiday posts so stay tuned for those and if you have anything you might want me to post about let me know because I love getting ideas! 

And just to end this remember to be nice to each other.

Thank You..

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
-John McCrae

Getting There....

Well this whole back to blogging thing is coming slowly but it is coming! I do want to blog but I'm having a hard time stringing the words together how I like them! Which in blogging/writing can cause quite the problem! But alas we will power through this and get back to normal as soon as possible!

I'm in my final two days of being 31....as of Wednesday morning I will be 32! I honestly don't care about aging because it happens and you can't fight it! Well some people try to and we can all tell who they are! I can say my life is not where I thought it would be when I turned 32 but I'm very happy and I know everything happens for a reason. If other plans had of worked out I would be doing what I love and my life would be very different. For my birthday, we having a family dinner on Wednesday and then on Friday myself and my momma are going to see from the curling Masters in Truro. I'm rather excited because I haven't been to a curling event in a long time, should be a really good time. Then on Sunday again with my momma I'm going to see Travis Tritt and I can't wait! It is going to be such a good time! I have loved Travis Tritt since I was a little girl. It is great getting to go with my mom too because she is really the reason I listened to him in the first place. Plus, she had a lot to do with my birthday so nice to share this stuff with her :)

Also, today I'm linking up with Meghan and Biana for Weekending with....I have to say I didn't have the most exciting weekend! But, I will give you the details anyways! On Saturday I had to work until lunch time. I did my sister's hair and one of my cousin's came in for blow out. Then, I went to lunch with Erica (sister for those who don't know) and I had a lovely greek salad! I'm not sure how you could go wrong when you have feta cheese on something! So yummy! After that I came home and chilled and honestly did nothing for the rest of the evening! I told you my weekend wasn't exciting! On Sunday I helped get my dad ready to leave for up north again. He will be working up there again until maybe mid December. If any of you have kids and need to get Santa their letters we can ship to my dad and he can deliver them! Yes he is almost that far up north! Erica and my mom took him to the airport so I had dinner and hung out with Chase (my brother) for the evening. I don't think I need to include today since I cleaned and did laundry! But honestly Monday are my Sundays because I don't work on Mondays. Sadly they never really feel like Sundays but I will take it!

Anyways I hope you all had a great weekend! What are everyone's plans for Halloween?

What's HapPinning!

Look I'm back again! Maybe this comeback is really going to happen this time. Anyways, I have of course kept up my Pinterest addiction over the last months and today I'm linking up with Jessi and Jenn for What's Hap-Pinning?! I love that! Here are some of the pins I have been pinning lately!

Everything autumn! Crisp air, cozy sweaters, teas, slippers and beautiful colors, what isn't to love!

I love autumn! So I figured why not share a few autumn pins and no I don't just love autumn because my birthday falls in it though it doesn't hurt :) Hope you're all having a wonderful Wednesday! I'm going to check out some other blogs from this link up now :)

Well isn't this a pleasant surprise to see me pop up again!? I hope it is anyways! I have been thinking about coming back to blogging for awhile now and I feel like I'm ready again. I think I am because we all know I have tried a few times and they just haven't worked. I'm feeling more settled and I'm in a good routine so adding in some blogging should be a good thing.

I don't even know where to start to do a catch up on life since I last blogged so I'm not going to really I'm just going to give you some of the highlights!

  • graduated! Top of the class I might add! Hard work pays off!
  • got a job! Before I graduated and I LOVE where I am
  • Weddings! Two of cousins were married this summer! Lots of family fun was had
  • Summer was awesome as always!
  • More babies are now in my family and circle of friend
Those are the fun highlights of the past few months. OH and I chopped my hair off!

 I'm loving having short(er) hair! Makes the mornings or just getting ready in general so much easier!

Now lets all cross our fingers in hopes I will continue this blog thing! Since what is blogging without a nice link up I'm linking up with Mingle Monday! Go and check it out!

It's 2015!

Not only is it 2015 it is February! When did this happen? Honestly, I don't know where 2014 went so I have no idea where January went! I have been meaning to come back to the blog for a long time now. I feel like whenever I say I'm coming back I get busy and then it is just too much to even think of blogging! I do really want to get back into my blog so fingers crossed this is the beginning of more posts from me! I have some ideas for upcoming posts and hopefully just some fun stuff! 

I saw this 31 day challenge on my friend Sara's blog and decided why not! I probably won't be doing this everyday because well I just don't think I will be taking the time to do it everyday but I will do all of it by the end of March lets say! I will give a deadline just not a firm one.

An introduction, maybe a re-introduction? Okay, I'm Brittany! I'm 31 years old and I'm currently taking cosmetology at the local community college. I have a great family and friends who I will often talk about on here. I don't really even know what to say in this introduction because my next task is to give 20 facts about myself. So I think I'm going to make you wait until the facts to really get an introduction to me. 

Okay, fingers crossed I actually get back into the routine of blogging!

Beauty Wednesday....School Update

Since I haven't posted in awhile about school I decided to give just a little update on what I have been doing. I could have a lot more pictures but I figured these were enough for now. I have started color in school and it is so much fun! We have been doing it for a bit now since October really, we started with just straight colors and now we are doing foiling too which I have done a lot of! Seems when I have color clients in they always want foils! I'm not complaining because it is great practice but man I haven't gotten to do a retouch yet or a full head of color! I do like doing the foils though. We have also been working on updos which is so much fun. I have been doing a few outside school as well because I have been posting my work on facebook and people are interested! Makes it feel so real since I will be able to do all of this in May at a real salon! I can't wait for graduation even though I will miss my class and everything it will be nice to be out on my own!

These up dos were done awhile ago and I have been doing more on my friends and family. It is way more fun to work on real heads!

Hope you're all having a great week! xo
