Lil Miss Trixie May has found her "furever" (excuse the pun) HOME!!!!!
(I realize this picture says Melody. The girl is 11 months old and has had 2 different names...sweet little thing already has identity issues!)
We met her new parents at a local Petsmart last night and I swear, it was love at first sight. We spent an hour with her human Momma and Daddy and her new fur brother & sister. They got along so well that her new Daddy called me 3 times today to find out if they would get her tonight!
Her permanent home has a doggie door so she can come and go as she pleases. :o) Sweet girl ran from it when the plastic flap swung and hit her in the face but I have high hopes she'll master the technique in no time...

..and she has a yard!! She also has a basket of bones and free reign all over the house! This girl has found her perfect match. Happy Home Trixie May!!! Bugs and I love you and wish you a lifetime of happiness! Don't forget to say hi every now and then. :o)

Personal Update

I've gotten a couple questions about how I've been doing since my not so pretty rant early last month. First of all, thank you for the concern. :o) I'm doing fine! After my very public post (seriously, what was I thinking?!?) a few friends stepped forward to let me know exactly what they thought about my rant. I got a few cards, a couple text messages, a couple phone calls, an email or two and a few small lectures.
In the everyday nitty gritty of things, it's easy to feel like you get lost in the commotion of life. Those feelings are magnified about 100% when you're sad and lonely. I know better than to let my feelings get the better of me but, for whatever reason, they did. I'm not proud of my past posts, but I am still so touched by everyone who reached out to me.
All in all, things have been going well. I have been keeping busy with a very hectic work schedule, planning a few quick weekend getaways, looking for lil Miss Trixie May's new parents (we have potential adopters!!) and it also looks like I will be townhouse/condo hunting in the very near future.
Life is good! It's not perfect, but when is it ever? I still do get lonely and sad and sometimes even angry that I am where I am in my life. But at the end of the day, I'm a girl who believes that everything happens for a reason and I have a lot of faith that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. I'm one of the luckiest girls on this earth and good days or bad, I wouldn't trade my life for anyone else's.

I hope ya'll have a fabulous week!

Beauty Trend: Ombre Highlights

Ombre coloring can be seen just about anywhere these days...on clothes, bags, scarves, even shoes.
Celebs, of couse, took the look a bit futher and started using a technique called ombre highlights on their hair. That's right people. There's a word for the crazy major root-age you see a few select celebs sporting these days.
When done right (and subtely) I think it's actually a unique and fun look.
I love the color of Drew Barrymore's hair. It's a bit dramatic but still so fitting for her fun and funky personality.

For those weary of the trend, but still wanting to try it, this look would be perfect for you. Subtle highlights on the ends of your hair will give you the brightness you're craving without the harshness of too much color.

Hilary Duff looks gorgeous. I love the subtle contrast and the colors in her hair will easily take you into fall. If you want something that will last through a few seasons, go with her look!
