I'm Going to Miss Her Dearly...

The ex-hubs' Aunt B died Late Wednesday night. She was fighting cancer since November 08 (although she didn't tell anyone until Feb 09) and unfortunately lost the battle. And she was a fighter!! BB was very, very close to his Aunt. Just to tell you how close, she went with him to pick out my engagement ring... We spent practically every weekend at her house and any and every family get-together was at her house as well. She was more like a grandmother to BB and was without a doubt the glue that held that family together. It breaks my heart to think about how much pain the family is going through right now from her passing.

She was a hairdresser and EVERYBODY knew her - she even cut my little brother's hair up until she had to close her shop. She was a great lady ~ short and fiesty and SO much FUN to be around. Always had the biggest smile on her face when we would show up and a loud "HI HONEY!" when we walked through the door. Always a big hug. BB was her favorite and she wasn't shy about saying it or about how perfect he was! He felt the same way about her. One of the toughest parts of splitting with B was that she would be so disappointed in me. I haven't seen her since we split up which has been almost two years ago now. I really hate that I didn't go visit her when she was sick. I know she would have been happy to see me and it would have been nice to see her one more time.

I sent BB a text message and told him I was sorry and, out of respect, asked him if it was ok if I came to the funeral. He said it would be selfish of him not to let me and that she would want me to be there. I got very teary eyed when I read this because I know she would want met there... I'm glad I told him first that I was coming and asked him if it was ok. It makes me feel better about going although (even though my mom and sister are coming with me) it is going to be very uncomfortable to be around people that talked so much crap about me and generally don't care for me. Not that I did anything bad in the situation, it's just "my fault" that I left and B took it so hard. I don't blame them I guess. Tomorrow is going to be a rough, rough day.

A friend of hers wrote this status on facebook:

"You know She's having a black cup of coffee, a bomber cigarette and telling the Big Man ..."I'm Home--You Little Sh*T!!!!"..."

That's so her. I miss her...

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Mudfest 2010

Welp, we knew Rockfest was going to be interesting this year because of all the rain we've been getting. We knew it was going to be a muddy mess, hence the rain boots purchase. What we didn't totally prepare for was the drizzly rainy 50 degree weather to go along with the mud. So, it kind of sucked.... BUT, we made the best of it and had a good time laughing at all the tweekers and drunk @sses falling all over themselves in the mud. Good Times!

I got to see the one band I was really pumped for - HALESTORM!
I have a girl crush on Lzzy Hale and she did NOT let me down with the hotness either!! Her brother RJ (who is the drummer) was pretty freaking yummy too.

The rain was going as soon as we got there, but it let up off and on throughout the afternoon. My rain boots were the best thing ever invented and worth every penny of the $17 I spent on them! I wasn't slipping and sliding in the muddy mess like every other flip-flop wearing tard out there. You wouldn't believe all th…
