Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

It's offical offical

Ok so I've been to the doctor, everything is A-ok, and I'm far enough along to be past the nervous stage, we're announcing..... OFFICALLY.
I have no due date however because the 1st day of my last cycle is a guess, so he's putting me at the end of January, but after a complete check up, he thinks I"m farther than that! I'm hoping far enough to see what it'll be!!!! Next week I'll have an offical due date.
I'm really hoping for a girl for the sake of my marriage. You see, Branden and I cannot fully agree and any boys name we love together. I love Matthew Allen, he doesn't and there other names I like, but I want to love the name!!!! A girl would make the naming process so much easier!!!!! Plus, a girl would be something new and exciting! If it's a boy, I might have to throw a fit. Maybe.
