okay, so i have been REALLY bad about blogging lately. finishing up my website (yea!) and working more than usual! SO i'm back! and i will reallllly try to post more. some of you have commented on that, and i am SORRY! so here goes... a little update:)

work at the salon is going REALLY well (i am feeling a raise pretty soon?! hopefully at least!) i got a free eye brow wax, 1 hour massage, and 1 hour facial (which i am OBSESSED with) so i guess i am starting to LOVE the perks....... signed up for all my free stuff next month already!

Ohhh My Card! is almost up & running! seriously, SO excited! website guy is putting some finishing touches, the LOGO is almost done, and i am making as many cards as i can! got 60 more orders! yikes!

South Beach Diet is amazing! my mom lost 7 pounds in the first week! we are just LOVING it. i feel better everyday, and i am starting to feel REALLY good about the cleanse. LOVE it. we are on day 9! on day 15 we get to eat fruit... THANK GOOOOODNESS!

Soccer still training, slowly but surely this time! playing at night time, and LOVING getting back into it. feel a little tired after my trainings b/c i am not eating HUGE portions of carbs right now (or non for that matter).... BUT drinking lots of water and hoping to stay in it. healthy. ALSO, chatted with the WPSL peeps last night.... looks like i am gonna start playing with them! (well "tryout" basis) of course. games on the weekends, and all throughout summer. we play the bay area pro team (if i make it!) which will get me a get look for that team maybe!? fingers crossed!

birthdays! soooooo Jessica's 24, Amy's 26, AND Jackie's 26 were ALL yesterday! MAN o MAN! i spent saturday downtown for the pub crawl! what a BLAST! pics are uploaded on facebook & myspace! SO FUN! i will be seeing amy in a few weeks for a late "celebration" and jackie next month when i am in Long Beach for our women's alumni game! SO happy birthday girls! i LOVE LOVE LOVE you guys!!!

the joy of a smile

sometimes it's easier to write then say things aloud. don't ya agree?!
i tried the whole journal thing, but i turned it into a scrapbook (go figure).
i tried the whole writting down my thoughts, but again turned that into a cute little scrappie.
hmmmmmmmmmmm i guess i wanted to talk it out but now i'm just gonna "blog it out"
so here goes...

i went to starbucks this morning to get my regular cup of joe before work.
i saw the CUTEST old couple (SO cute i wanted to sneak a picute - but realized the stalker in me needed to tone it down a notch).

anways, back to my story....
this old couple was sitting at a table drinking what looked to be like tea. (not quite sure, but irrelevant eith way). SO i walked past them and did my normal smile at strangers look when i noticed they started to get up & kind of come towards me (which excited me, but again, stalker side of me didn't need to shake their hands or anything, just a simple smile).

OH & sidenote, i want to be JUST like them one day. they were laughing like they were 12 again and truly loved each other with every ounce of themselves. it didn't matter where they were, how old they were, or what they were doing..... it only mattered that they were together.

long story short the old man came up to me while holding his wife's hand...
and said this.............. "darlin, you make sure you keep smiling at strangers because it really made our day."

ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm can you say, i wanted to wrap my arms around them, put them in my pocket, and take them home with me!

i died. literally.

little did they know those two made MY day.

the joy of a single smile. the joy of a lifetime of love. life doesn't get much better than that.
