New Year’s Resolution & Goals Updates!


Ah, I finally did it- I got the LONG awaited haricut and it’s the best one I have had in a long time! I used to see my friend’s sister- Annie, she did my hair for few years; and she always did a WONDERFUL job with my hair. I don’t see her anymore due to different location- moved to Lakeville, and now she lives in Wisconsin. Boo.

A friend of mine goes to Cole’s in Burnsville, and suggested that place since I wanted someone who was good with hair, to cut my hair, yet, local. I’m pretty picky with hair, even with my baby boy! So, I went to check that place out in Apple Valley. I had same person that cut my hair few times, I decided to try someone else- I wasn’t always 100% happy with my haircut, and I tried someone else last fall. She did okay job- not as wonderful. So, I didn’t remember her name.

Tonight, Joe let me off hook, and let me go by myself to get haircut (THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH my LOVE!!!!)- and walked in, and asked if they had anyone that could do haircut, like now. 🙂 They had a person available right away, she was more expensive than the next person that was available in one hour. I really did not wait, and I figured, if she was more expensive, then she must have had more experience and I wanted someone good to do my hair anyways. I’m really glad I went with my gut instinct. Sue, she just celebrated her 21st year there, did a FABLOUS job with my hair. I ended up keeping my bangs (YES, if I had cut it, I would have beat myself up for that as I’ve been trying to grow it out).

I have a long layered hair, with long bangs. It just felt not balanced, and yes, I did not like the way my hair looked. I explained to her that I wanted couple of inches trimmed throughout, including my bangs, thin out my hair as I have thick hair (and the longer the hair is, the more heavy it is, causes stress on my neck and I get headaches from that). She asked if I wanted to trim the sideways, to get my bangs length to flow with rest of the hair… GREAT IDEA! Thank you! BEAUTIFULLY done. I’m in love with my hair! It actually feels balanced, and my bangs feels like it’s growing along with my long hair. 🙂 She charged $40 for my haircut, and I paid $10 tip. She deserved every penny of it. If you are happy with your services, please make sure you tip well!

TIP: People should always tip at least 15%. If poor services, then can tip lower– 12%, however, just think, if you still gave 15%, you probably gave more than others, and that makes the person happy- domino effect, encourages the person to give others better services because of the positive attitude you had just influenced. For GREAT services, you can tip up to 18%. Tonight, I decided to tip her 25% because she was FANTASTIC- not only with haircut, as well as her positive attitude, she was very friendly, communicated with me very well, and worked with me. I felt not only that she just did her services, she also cared, and treated me just like I was another customer.

Enough about haircut. 🙂

Mason and I talked last night, and he agreed that he would be responsible for our family game nights. YES! 🙂 He choose Thursdays as our Family Game night! 🙂 Although tonight, and last night, Mason and Joe played poker and Uno. You can guess who’s the reigning Uno King…. It’s Joe! 🙂 He always beats all of us! Up north, was a different story though! 🙂 I won many times, and so did Mason. 😀 Looking forward to our Thursdays Game nights! 🙂

Last night, we watched a movie– “Sitter.” Erg. Stay away from the movie if you can. Terrible movie. We lost two hours of our life watching this movie, and we do not want you to lose any of your precious time! 🙂 The day before, we also rented a movie- The Girl with Dragon Tattoo, is a GREAT movie! Amazing. It kept me drawn to it the entire time. Highly recommend, although if you are not for nudity, then don’t watch it. We learned that they have I think 3 more parts of this movie. We can’t wait to watch next part of this movie series.

Blogging- it has been quiet the past weekend, we apologize for that. We decided that we would blog Monday through Friday, however occasionally, we might surprise you with a blog over the weekend from time to time.

Good night, -M


An “are you fn kidding me” moment. :)


I was on the job site today and was beginning my walk through of a soon to be construction zone when I over heard 2 young woman talking about the Titanic. I was proceeding with my duties and began to walk by their reception area when I over heard one of the girls say “can you imagine if that was real.” eeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrtttt!!!!! That is the sound of the rubber melting off of my shoes from stopping so fast!!! I had to hear this! The conversation continued about how unbelievable it would have been if such an event would have occurred, and that they were confused why the movie was coming back out again after so many years. At that point my head is really beginning to throb, however I see out of the corner of my eye salvation in a young man listening as well and beginning to approach them. He comes to the desk leans in and tells the young ladies that the reason the movie is being released in theaters again is because of the 100 year anniversary. Without missing a beat one lady says “Is that movie really that old?” OMFG I am screaming in my head!!! The young man begins to explain that the movie is only 15 years old and the actual event happened 100 years ago. The voice of reason, or so I thought. If he had stopped there I would have walked away. But nope, he proceeded to tell the ladies that the entire sinking of the ship was a hoax set up by the U.S. government at the time to ensure steel sales and ship building to the United States and all missing people were spread out through out the U.S. and given land and money to go along with the story. WTF did I just hear??? I was very tempted to ask him his feelings on the Moon landing or JFK assassination but at this point it was like someone pushing ice picks into my ears and I just couldn’t further the pain. The worst part was the two ladies were very much taken by the story, I shook my head and walked away. We have the utterly stupid leading the utterly clueless now. I sooooo weep for the future!!! Remember: Friends don’t let friends raise dumb asses! 🙂 -J
