Personal

I hate when you know extremely personal things about someone, and you have to pretend that you don’t know them. AHHHHHHH!

Deflated

That’s the perfect word to describe how I feel.

In mid October Ashley went on a ghost tour on a date. She text me telling me that she saw a ghost. She asked the tour guide to describe the man she saw, and the guide described his height and the way his hands looked. Ashley saw a man with a hat on and long white fingers that moved, so when the guide mentioned that, she got a little freaked out. She asked the guide to describe the man because she wanted confirmation that what she saw was the ghost of this man.  When she told me the guide was a medium I told her I would defriend her if she didn’t get that lady’s information.

We each spent 45 minutes with her last night. I plan on doing a post going over the things she covered while talking to me, but that will be for another day. She brought up things dealing with my past and my dad. Things that there is no way she had any idea of knowing. I’ve always been a little skeptic of psychics and anything of that nature, but as she was reading me and talking to spirits, I found myself almost in tears because of the things she was telling me.

Last night was like going through years of therapy. I can vouch for that because I went through years of therapy when I was little. I am still trying to process everything she told me and make sense of it all. I felt a multitude of emotions. Each time I think of one specific thing she mentioned, I feel like I could burst into tears. I felt like that drying my hair this morning as I was getting ready for work, and three times throughout the day.

I am glad that I was able to have this experience. I think it will really help me in dealing with my dad’s death. Dealing with someone’s death is never an easy thing, especially when the relationship wasn’t exactly… easy. That’s the only word that I can think of to describe our relationship, and that’s not the word I want to use.. I think that a lot of people can’t even begin to grasp that understanding until they lose someone they care about. Something that I feel like my bosses have a hard time understanding actually…

I will post an update in a few days. Ashley took notes for me so that I wouldn’t miss anything if I was in the moment with her, and I did the same for her. I’m just waiting for her to type them up for me so that I don’t miss anything.

Africa

Fellow blogger and ATLian Whitney recently went on a life changing trip to Africa. She read the book Love Does by Bob Goff and felt an urgency to do something with his foundation, Restore International.

I have enjoyed reading about her time in Africa and how it changed her. So inspiring…

Here are the links, they speak for themselves..

Voices

I’ve been sucked in to this season’s The Voice. Why I haven’t been watching this show before, I have no idea. I am watching DVR’d episodes of the live shows and I’m blown away by a few of the performances. The Voice trumps American Idol for sure. Here are two songs that I heard because of The Voice that I think are incredible.

 

In The Closet

My bestie and I viewed this a few days ago when it showed up in her fb feed.

This message is awesome. I love how she makes you realize that everyone can relate to being in the closet.

Hair Products I Love

I am always on the search to make my hair better. I have a lot of hair, but it’s thin. I typically keep my hair short for more volume. I’m a big fan of this product for what I call sex hair. I feel like the next morning I need to wash my hair twice to get it all out, and let’s be honest, ain’t no body got time for that.

Enter DON. Blogger of all things celeb+. She’s awesome. She recently wrote a post on Oliva Palermo’s hair. Since Olivia has amazing hair I decided to order a few of the products off Amazon.

She has awesome hair, right? I decided to test out the Living Proof Thickening Mousse,  Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Spray and L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium 4 Extreme Hold Finishing Spray.

I have to say, I can tell a major difference in how thick my hair feels now. To the dismay of my stylist, I’ve been wanting to grow my hair out for a while now, and the thickening mousse might be the perfect product to help me get through that awkward growing stage. I really love all 3 of the products. If you’re in the market for volume and thickness, I recommend trying these products. You can buy both of them at Ulta. They also come in travel sizes.

KOL

It’s public knowledge that Caleb and the other Kings fight. You may remember this article. Alcohol obviously plays a big part in their lives. I think there are a few songs on their newest album geared towards recovery..

Tonight

Those are just a few of my favorites. Try this link to hear all songs off Mechanical Bull. The past 3 CDs including this one, I have really liked every song on the album. I think that’s rare, which is why I’m such a huge fan. Can’t wait to see them in Feb!

For Ashley’s birthday she wanted to do something that she could include her son in on, so we decided on fruits, meats, cheese, and wine in the park. Laura met us there but by that time it was dark and this is the only picture we took.
