Manic Monday

Manic Monday #152

brought to us by Fleur de Lisa---play along today!

What gives you hope?

My two boys give me hope. There's a lot of creative, energetic, good-hearted, smart, kids out there today. I believe in them and that they can make this world a much better place!!

How often do you get your haircut?

Because it's short, about every 6 weeks or so...I'm pretty lazy when it comes to keeping up with my hair!!

Describe your worst haircut.

I did it to myself when I was 12. I cut my bangs when my hair was wet...yep, you guessed it!! When my hair dried...NO BANGS!! I wore my dad's golf hat for what some liked weeks!! I looked like Gilligan's twin sister!

What's your most treasured piece of jewelry?

My amethyst cross that my hubby and boys bought me for my birthday about 5 years ago.


Because I hardly ever get gifts for my birthday, I was home sick for days, and it was a total surprise...I bawled like a baby!!

Happy Monday everyone!!


  1. Children do have a way of offering us hope, don't they?

    I'm bad about keeping up with my hair too. I usually go in once every two or three months. I should do it more often, I know.

    My most treasured piece of jewelry is my cross too. :-)

    I hope you have a wonderful week.

  2. Thank God for Dad's golf hat, hey? :)

  3. Owh how I knew kids do give us hope. Waking up each day with their smiles would really brighten up our days.. Happy Monday too!

  4. AWH! Good gifts are never forgotten! I also remember cutting my bangs way too short. Actually, I think they were crooked too! But it wasn't "cool" to wear hats then... otherwise I would have!

  5. I think we've all cut our bangs off at one point :) LOL

    Love the birthday jewelery!

    And I tagged you in a meme, by the way :)

  6. Once in HS, an awful styist cut my bangs way too short. It was so ugly. I let them grow out and I haven't had bangs since.

  7. Oh yeah, bad bangs - been there! Surprise gifts are always the best. Especially if jewelry is involved. :-)

  8. A three hour tour. The weatrher started getting rough.... I'll stop singing now... ;)

  9. Awww, I love the Jewelry story :)

  10. Your haircut story is too funny! LOL!!

  11. I cut mine every 6 weeks as well, in a hair salon called Every 6 Weeks! Really! I've maintained a buzz cut because I'm lazy to do my hair every morning.

  12. Sounds like a beautiful piece of jewelry!

    Gilligan's sister, that' s cute!

    Happy Monday!

  13. OMG! You reminded me when I was younger I did that to my bangs. I looked like the girl from Reality Bites. Hehehehe.

    I still try to trim my bangs myself or have my sister do it. It saves me $$ because I have long hair.

    How cute though - Gilligan's sister.

    Hope you had a nice Monday Staci!!
