The 3 Fake Blondes, The Trio, Tri-pod, BAM.... A True Friendship.

Growing up I was a "Tom Boy". I didn't really have girl friends, I was better friends with the boys and could relate to the boys better than the girls. I wasn't a "girlie" girl, and I still am not a "girlie" girl. I mean, I wear make up and wear jewelry and perfume but i still would rather pick a pair of jeans to wear rather than a dress or a skirt. I don't like to wear high heels, I much prefer flats and when most girls love to "match their clothing", I really don't care. haha.

Now as I get older I see myself hanging around with the girls. My two best friends are girls. Who would have thought?!? I mean we're like day and night but we seem to balance each other out.

Example: Mandi is the "girliest" girl I know, she wears pink all the time and always has to have her purse match her outfit. She is really, lets just say, "Blonde", and bubbly. Everyone loves to be around her because she is so nice, beautiful, and funny. She says the funniest things like, "Sushi like from Ireland?" She has a way of making everything funny. Mandi is gorgeous, she has this beautiful class to her. She brightens the room when she walks in. She is, like me, a Hairdresser. She is an amazing hairstylist, she is so good at Up-do's (unlike me). haha

On the ot
her hand, there is my friend Brooke, or as everyone calls her Brooktini, or Brookelynne, or Brookie or my all time favorite Brookie Bear. She is an amazingly beautiful girl who everyone wants to date. She is a lot like Mandi, meaning she "matches" her clothes and always has her hair done neatly and "girlie", and she wears dresses for fun. On the other hand she is like me too, she is spontaneous and fun and is a crazy moody driver. She is getting into this "Bohemian style" and always has cute clothes. She is a little more stand off-ish though. She is not really "touchy feelie" like Mandi, she has to know you before she can give you a hug, but thats not a bad thing. She is a convert to the church and loves to learn more and more everyday. She loves kids, where as I could pretty much do without them. She is a great person with a wonderful heart and I love her. She, in fact, is perfect for our friendship, she is half like me and half like Mandi.

I, on the other hand, am a wild and moody person. I like to do fun and crazy stuff without really thinking. I am down for anything. I am a relaxed person. I am typically the driver when it comes to going places, I love to drive, and I happen to be a tailgater. haha. I don't even realize I'm doing it either. haha. I have the crazy hairstyles and the crazy dress style. I would rather eat junk food than anything else while Brooke at least tries to eat more healthy foods. My two friends like to play sports while I would rather watch, well it depends. I am a moodier person, and sometimes cant help but say what I feel which gets me in trouble sometimes. hehe. But really I like to have fun and be really goofy...

I love my family with all my heart and would lay my life down for them and when I say family I include my friends.
Our friendship is wonderful and beautiful and we "get" each other so perfectly, we rarely fight and we always include each other. We rarely ever get jealous of each other which is even more perfect. I love my friends with all my heart and they have become family to me and my family. Its funny how three "different girls" can become such good friends.

He's Just Not That Into You.

Why is it that guys never ask girls on dates?

My friend and I have come to the realization that guys don't ask girls on dates. At least thats what i thought. I just finished this book called, He's Just Not That Into You, by Greg Behrendt.

This book basically tells you everything you need to know about every excuse a man gives about a women and every excuse a woman gives about a man. Greg, has a way of telling the reader what not to do, with class. You would think this book is about putting the woman down, when really it is a book to lift her up and tell her that she should not settle for a man who doesn't appreciate her, and that she deserves more. This book was a New York Best Seller and I completely agree. I would recommend this book to anyone who has questions about men, or what they think they are doing wrong in their relationship. Its funny and easy to read.

A little excerpt from "He's Just Not That Into You":
Chapter One: he's just not that into you if he's not asking you out
Because if he likes you, trust me, he will ask you out.
Many women have said to me, "Greg, men run the world." Wow. That makes us sound pretty capable. So tell me, why would you think we could be incapable of something as simple as picking up the phone and asking you out? You seem to think at times that we're "too shy" or we "just got out of something." Let me remind you: Men find it very satisfying to get what they want. (Particularly after a difficult day of running the world.) If we want you, we will find you. If you don't think you gave him enough time to notice you, take the time it took you to notice him and divide it by half.
Now you begin the life-changing experience of reading our book. We have put the stories we have heard and questions we've been asked in a simple question-and-answer format. If you're lucky, you'll read the following questions and know what they are: Excuses that women have made for their unsatisfying situations.

Imagine right now that I'm leaping up and down and shaking my fist at the sky. I'm on my knees pleading with you. I'm saying this in a loud voice: "Please, if you can trust one thing I say in this book, let it be this: When it comes to men, deal with us as we are, not how you'd like us to be." I know it's an infuriating concept — that men like to chase and you have to let us chase you. I know. It's insulting. It's frustrating. It's unfortunately the truth. My belief is that if you have to be the aggressor, if you have to pursue, if you have to do the asking out, nine times out of ten, he's just not that into you. (And we want you to believe you're one of the nine, ladies!) I can't say it loud enough: You, the super fox reading this book, are worth asking out.
