Honestly my brows aren't a problem for me, but they are full. I was always concerened they just didn't frame my eyes as well as they could. But I was afraid of the pain of waxing. I had herd horror stories, worried it would look unatural, or that I would get nasty red bumps, or lose skin with the hair. None of these worries were realized. Yes it hurt a bit, but it was quick, and over in a few seconds. My brows look natural, but shaped, and they frame my eyes like they have never before. No bumps, and I still have all my skin.
The stylist was very professional, and super nice. I will do this again< as soon as they grow out. I want to keep my new fabulous brows. :)

Have you ever had the feeling that your not welcome? Or like no one wants you around, unless you are helping them? That's how I'm feeling tonight.
It seems like I do everything wrong, or I just can't get ahead. But if I do someone else a favor, things are cool for about 5 minuets, then its back to me being a screw up.
I'm not trying to wine, or wallow in self pitty. But it seems pretty messed up that, when I'm not needed people point out all my faults, then expect me to smile when they want me to do them a favor.
Maybe I'm not the best at cleaning, maybe I forget to wipe down the sink, or sweep everyday, but does that make me a bad guest? Does it make it ok to degrade me, and make me feel like crap? I don't know anymore.... maybe I'm better off somewhere else.

So today is the first day I've really been able to shop. I checked out some of the super cool shops on 4th ave.
I bought a dress at How Sweet it Was vintage shop. Its long velvet, and a brand I have been dying to check out. Pyramid collection! I've seen this dress on their website for $119 and I paid just over $30 I think that's a deal. :)
Pictures comming soon
I also stopped at the local Goodwill and bought a dress and a pair of killer red shoes. $10 for the dress pictured, and $5 for the shoes. Not a bad shopping day, I also stopped in a few other shops along my way, but I came home with what I wanted. :)
So I have to blog about today even if the only reason is that it is 11/11/11. Lol
So it was a kinda slow paced day for me, I woke up late, showered, and went to a kid's birthday party. It was fun even though my neice kept trying to escape, and I ate way too much, but it was a good time.
It was at Peter Piper's which is a local kids joint kinda like chuckie cheese. The pizza was good, and it wasn't overly anoying and loud like chuckie cheese can be.
After the party we headed home, and I had a quiet night babysitting my brother's kids. Thankfully the babies slept most of the night, they only woke up to eat, then went back to sleep. It was very late when their parents got back, but I got in 2 good movies so I can't say it was terrible. I watched Surrogets, and The Village. I liked both, since I really dig science fiction.
I really wish all days (and nights) could be this easy.

I've had a few rough days living with my brother. Its not my ideal situation, but it seems to be getting a bit better. There are still issues, but no more screaming matches. It could just be the quiet before the storm, or it could be getting better. I'm not sure which but I'm hoping for better. I really do love my family, but sometimes its hard to make things work.

There were thousands of people, if not hundreds of thousands of people. And everyone was there for one event, one goal. To see and walk in the parade.
Thousands of people in face paint, people carring memorial signs, people taking pictures, it was an amazing feeling. It was like attending an open service to every religion you could think of. It was a positive vibe, a diffrent way to honor a person's death, or those you loved who are gone. I felt so connected, to this city, and to everyone around me.
I have never seen anything like it before, it was like the whole city came out to celebrate, remember, and to show support. I will for sure go again next year, and maybe I will even paint my face, and walk. It was truely a moving event, and if anyone visits during the parade I would suggest dropping whatever plans you have and going. Trust me you wont regret it.
P.S. I will be posting pictures later, as for right now I will be heading to bed.

I spent the day helping my sister in law with her and my brother's kids. Crying, wining, screaming... you know normal kid stuff.
Had to clean up and unpack as soon as I had free time. Started at 11pm, just finished at 2am. I'm dead tired, but at least I'm mostly unpacked, and have clothes to wear, and don't have to dig for stuff.
I'm getting used to living with my brother, his gf, and kids. Its not perfect, and I bite my tounge a lot, but it could be worse.....
