Short and Sweet- My Antithesis

Ok this is going to be short but I am trying to post at least once a week until I get use to being back home. I mean it's just so great to be home. It just feels so right and for me. I am getting into a routine at work and at home. Right now I have moved from just sitting in the house and enjoying it to completely unpacking and finally hanging art and putting final touches on the house. I'm still looking for a couch but I have plenty of time.

This week I will be doing the guest bedroom so that should be fun. I'll try to remember to take a pic once its done. I've also started looking at landscaping books time to add some curb appeal to my little spot. Man if you guys only KNEW the extreme joy I get out of decorating my house and loving my defacto man TOM A, Crys informed me I was in love. HA HA HA!! I am happy.

I have to admit its taken a minute for TOM A and I to figure out how this life works for us, but I think we have. Things seem good and most importantly I am happy.

Can I just tell you that I have done it! Finally broke down and after MANY many MANY many years I am wearing red lips. Well more like wine but red none the less. I have been wearing pinks and nudes so long. I've bought darker lipsticks but not worn them always went back to pink. Something about this winter makes me feel like lots of lashes and dark lips and dark hair.
I know I'm crazy but I love playing grown up! Just for the record I BLAME this red lipstick voyage all on Keisha Cole looking like FIYAH on her CD cover. FIYAH!!

Well its time to go. I have an early morning . Until I blog again....

Be EZ,

LoL . . . Keyshia does look flyy!

I'm going to try to get into make-up. I've never been a big make-up person but I want to do some mineral make-up, make my brows look like something (I have very little in the way of eyebrows) and do lip color. I happen to love darker colors, though! :)

Hey Ma'am !

I see you stopped my way & I appreciate hearing from you. It's been a moment & I knew it would take some time to adjust. But see...we've developed a habit of hearing all about it & now...we are detoxing(LOL).

Seriously, I'm glad that you made it back for the holidays because I wouldn't wish to be anywhere else(like Dorothy said in the Wizard of Oz..."There is NO place like HOME").

Wow. Candy red lips? said...

Hey there O.G.!

I am so happy that you are declaring that you are in love and happy and enjoying your house and that this will be a fantastic Christmas!

You know I had to drop in on you and bring "Merry Christmas" greetings!

Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

Hey OG! I used to be big on lipstick, but fell outta the habit for a while. I'm back at it again...MAC's stock should go up based on my purchases alone :-). Holla when you get settled. Much love and Merry Christmas!

Merry Xmas!
Congrats on the new house. Don't forget to bless the house with prayer and some Isley Brothers and John Coltrane's A Love Supreme would not hurt! LOL

Hey Glam!!! When I was 13 I wore nothing but red lipstick (to my mother's horror). I mean it was Ronald McDonald hair red!!!! Then I moved on to gold, oranges and browns (I was young) These days I keep saying I will try red again. There are so many shades...I have to find the perfect one.
Sounds like you are having a blast decorating. Post pictures when you are finished. Oh how I love to ogle at beautiful rooms. Which reminds me...I need to get back to HGTV!

OK I don't wear makeup as a man at all. I'm just passing through again.

I am sure that you will get settled into your routine shortly.

Let me get caught up on reading a few of your posts though...
