My photo
Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

life right now.

This is a bullet point post do ya dig?

-Husband had a second interview with a management in training program, he was super excited.

- Clinicals started and are going well. I thought that pericare was going to be horrible but in all honesty these people need help, that is why I am here, that is what I want to do (help people) and my skills take over and I do it without really thinking about it.

-Our air conditioner is on the fritz which means this has been a very uncomfortable weekend. I hate being hot and when I do I get super cranky.

-I read the 50 Shades trilogy in a week, it made me realize some things that I didn't know I thought would be sessy to try.

-Husband didn't get the job, we were all super bummed.

- I got the call for an interview at OSU

-I hate my house now that it is overrun with dogs and although I love them, I can't wait to get my house back.

- My interview went really well and I should know by mid week if I got it, prayers please.

- My mom and husband aren't getting along and guess who is in the middle?

-Husband is thinking about going back to school.... this will be its own post

- If I get this job, we are getting rid of my car, I don't know how I feel about this.

- The car issue was contingent on getting some higher quality work clothes, husband doesn't know this but those are my terms.

- Cooper destroyed my toms and I am still mad at him

My life in a nut shell....

that this is a fun survey and I really should do it once a year.

curve ball

freaking out over finances in the wee early hours a month ago I applied for a full time job at a prestigious university in the area. Can we guess where this is?

I have been trying to become a Buckeye since I started working at CPS, so for 6 years I have been applying for jobs and nothing ever happens and I thought this would follow suit.

The reason for the freak out, this new job isn't working out. The pay isn't great, the hours kind of bite and all of that I can deal with but the physical exhaustion is simply to much. I work a day and I am off my feet for 3, last weekend was the worst so far and husband actually told me to quit. I had to have him bring me my real tennis shoes not the work ones and I could barely walk myself out to his car, when I got there I was a blubbering mess because I was in so much pain.

Classes have finally started to pick up and I was feeling less guilty about leaving my job, thing were looking up. 

Then husband had a "talk" with me.

The talk went something like this:

Husband:We are getting by but barely

Me: feeling guilty

Husband:You need to find steadier work

Me: feeling more guilty

Husband: until then you need you ask your mom for more money

Me: dying a little more inside


I get a text from bestie and  she informed me that I made the short list. The short list for the job that on a whim I applied for, the full time job that on a whim I applied for.

I. was/am. nervous.ecstatic.praying. every. other. second. to.get. this. job.  I think the periods after every word really get the point across.

This opportunity would be amazing for me not only for helping us financially but I would be in at a university that has a medical center that if I stayed there I could transfer to after I graduated from school. AND not to mention I could continue my education for FREE.


The problem....

its full time and I would have to completely change my school schedule and be a quarter more behind than I already am.

I talked it over with husband and he always tells me in the end it is up to me and I think I know what I am going to do.

If I get called in for an interview and get offered the job, I am going to take it. It took me 6 years to get in to OSU and I am not going to pass up the opportunity.

I looked in to it and all the classes I am taking right now are offered in the evening and on weekends, so I am covered there, the only issue will arise when I start the actual surgical tech program but that could be another 2 years before that happens.

This comes at such a hopeful time because husband has a second interview with a company in a couple of weeks.

Please ladies, throw a prayer or some good jewjew our way.

Hair war

I did something really dumb a few months ago, I say dumb because I am so over it.

I got a perm.

Here is a hair bio:

My hair is fine but I have a crap ton of it.
night before the perm

for most of my life it has been stick straight.

trying curly girl method
Then about 2 years ago my straight hair went AWOL, I couldn't just let my hair air dry anymore because there was a wave and a frizz issue, so I had to start blow drying my hair and then flat ironing it. My hair freaking hated me, so I decided to try the curly girl method and my hair was...ok. It wasn't great but it wasn't terrible either. I just couldn't find the happy medium so I thought I would gave nature a little push and just get a perm. I read a lot about it online and yes it could damage my hair but I was doing that anyway, and a lot of people said that you should try it just once.

So I did it.

And from the chair I freaking hated it, the desire to wash my hair immedately when I got home was immense and I am not going to lie, I cried about it. It looked like a poodle licked an electical socket.
right before I washed it

I am going to admit that I didn't wait a full 48 hours, I waited like 36, I couldn't take my hair looking like that anymore. 
                       Here is the result. 
after plopping

I wasn't crazy about it, and I found it wasn't easy to take care of, It took me 5 weeks to find the balance of products and still now they aren't bouncy and shiny. The girl that did the perm used different sized rollers but I don't think she used big enough rollers to begin with. I wanted a looser curl and some of them are still really tight. My hair can't take full curly girl method, it is to fine to take not being cleansed. I tried apple cider vinegar cleanser and that left my hair dull. I tried a home protein treatment and it left my hair like straw. I was THIS close to shaving my head when we went down to Savannah. I semi dreaded the trip because of the heat and the humidity, I finally threw in the towel and washed my hair with husbands head and shoulders and then conditoned with a CG approved conditioner. MY HAIR FELT AMAZEBALLS!!!! That is when I realized I was a modified CG and I was never looking back.

After Savannah
But my hair still wasn't what I had hoped. It wasn't bouncy and honestly the back mattes like one of those dogs Sarah McLachlan makes you feel like shit about. I do everything they tell me too to prevent tangles and nothing works, so I wear my hair in a messy bun 8 out of 10 times and that isn't what I want. I love wearing my hair down especially now that it is so long.

So I straightened my hair and almost cried at how much I missed my straight hair, it is already growing out and the hair coming in is my old hair.
Straightened and loving it!

I have been throwing around the idea of when the new growth is longer I am going to save my money and go to one of the top salons around here and getting a straight perm and calling it a day.
