... a future oldywed with no regrets

When the Lord joins man and woman, the two as one shall be, yet in the home they share with Him – in faith, the two are three. He multiplies their blessings, their sadness He divides, and for their different dreams and needs, He equally provides. He adds to their fulfillment and takes away their care, and one in Him, their total life abounds with love to spare.

Little Ms. Homemaker and ruthless beauty gurus

I suppose the above should be Little MRS. Homemaker, but it doesn't flow right.


I recently bought our first wreath at Walmart. I never understood why Mom got so excited about hanging wreaths at home, but I admit I couldn't wait to hang my own. It's a tad cheesy, but I like it.
I also got a three-piece candle set and just found out that I'm terrible at photographing candles.
I'm also loving the colorful trees in our backyard, but haven't attempted to rake any. I honestly don't see the point. Plus, the leaves cover the bare spots.


So I'm off work tomorrow and thinking about getting a haircut, another one of my pre-Thanksgiving plans. I searched the Web in search of tips for styles that would compliment my face shape and this is the first thing I found: http://hairstyleschat.com/best-hairstyles-for-round-faces.html

Note that it basically says it's unfortunate to have a round face and you should do everything in your power to downplay it. That's how I read it at least.

"Not everyone has perfectly shaped bodies or faces. For people with a round shaped face, and therefore it can be difficult to find hairstyles that look best with your features."

First of all, that's not even grammatically correct.

"The best hairstyles for round faces are the ones that thin out the look of the face."

So now I have chipmunk cheeks?

"Accessorizing the hair is also something the client should look into doing, as this can draw attention away from the facial shape and actually cause individuals to focus on the hair."

I'm sorry, I didn't realize I had an unattractive face shape that went out of style with the Victorian era. This clearly wasn't written by a round-faced person.

I've done this search before, and it usually tells me to get a bob, which isn't happening. Maybe if I had a button nose, but I don't, so forget that.

It says to "embrace your round face."

Ick. I could never pull that off. ... But I do like that they compared my face shape to Penelope Cruz, Mandy Moore and Keira Knightley. Now if I can just get a personalized hair stylist. ...
