MLK Monday

I am not well versed in the entire Civil Rights Movement, but I have a great appreciation for the trail blazers and the advocates who worked so hard to make "All men are created equal" a reality. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man dedicated to creating a better world for himself, his children and his peers. I know I have never felt the racism, degradation, or humiliation that many African Americans like MLK have, and I can't even imagine a life less culturally diverse than the one I live. I know this world is far from being perfect, however, it is far better because of the work of people like Dr. Martin Luther King, and I am quite thankful for that!

Now on to our regularly scheduled activities- It's Mingle Monday!!! {insert awesome dance music, rain down the confetti, release the balloons} Everyone needs to head on over to Life of Meg and link up to this fabulous party and get a blog-hopping to find yourself some fabulous new reads, and perhaps a few new followers yourself. Also, Meg is a-freakin-dorable, and you will just LOVE her blog, I know I do! Last week Meg posted her "skinny turkey crock pot chili" recipe, and I made it Thursday night to rave reviews from Billy and my friend Lexie. We all had second helpings, and if our bellies could have fit more, I know we would have happily obliged.


Things I learned this weekend
~I should not freak out over a tightly packed schedule during the week; they often find ways to become more manageable, like people canceling instead of confirming.
~Working really hard for 3 hours on one client is so worth it when they LOVE their hair so much they need to HUG you before leaving the salon. 
~My friend Matt is a culinary genius, fantastic dresser, sarcastically humorous, and wants me to set him up with a friend of mine, know of any eligible ladies?
~My smart, intelligent, super awesome hubby passed his state board test and is now a licensed optician!
~I am very blessed. I love my jobs. I love my husband. I love my pets. I have amazing friends.
~A clean kitchen is worth the horrors of the work involved to get it that way. Now I just have to remember that for next time.

  3. Visiting from Mingle Monday. And you're right-- I'd rather work for hours for an appreciative client than just a few minutes for one who doesn't care or is rude.

    Love the quotes in your header! Happy Monday!
