I have an award winning blog!!!

I totally just won an award!!!!!!

Oh crap... it was an award for the biggest pity party EVER!! If you don't believe me look at this link I'm not tech savvy enough to figure out how to not post the whole address. So seriously check her blog out, and forget all the rules for the award. I am just going to accept mine with a smile and thank you!!!

Did I mean to throw a pity party?

No, not really, but we all have crappy days... and that was one of mine. Although I am a little embarrassed about being called out, I really really appreciate the sentiment. Not everyday is a good day, and it is really nice to remember how wonderful the people in your life are. So thank you Jessica L.! Thank you to the people who commented on that blog, I can't even tell you how happy it made me... yeah... tears were shed, but really I cry easy. It made me happy! Thank you to the Jessica with the coolest last name EVER... no... I'm sorry Lowe does not even compare to HOFFMASTER!!!! Thanks to Amber and Queen Mama... really everyone made my day. ( I would link to your pages, but I really don't know how)


YES!! that says "not pregnant"!!! I don't think I have ever been so happy in my life :)

***** Warning TMI*********

I started having periods again like 8 weeks after my baby Katherine was born. They have been very irregular, for a while they were coming every 2 weeks. Then it slowed down to once a month. Then gone for the last two months. So I got a little worried. I haven't felt pregnant, and I really didn't think I was. I just wanted to make sure before I had a couple beers... and I am NOT pregnant!!!! whoo hoo :)

If I had the name Hoffmaster...

I would defiantly start brewing beer, I mean how could you not??? The name Hoffmaster increases your beer credibility ten fold! Seriously Jess, think about it.

About coming to visit, it really depends on Dan's schedule that is changing every 5 min since he has been in the Marines. His deployment has been cancelled, but I think someone knows something that they are not telling us. They are still doing their workups to leave. You know how it is I'm sure. Why don't you guys come drive down and visit us! Come spend the week at the beach!

Dan's gone!

So I am having a bunco night, I would love if you would come

(yes everyone who reads my blog!)

Send me a message if you want info. I am having some of the girls from my work come over and I am really hoping to have enough people to play.


My new job has been so much fun! I have loved doing hair in the salon setting. I am still doing hair out of my house, but it is really nice to have the energy of a salon again.

I have dreaded working for the company I work for, because it is a corporation that has a lot of corporate BS to go along with it. But I have enjoyed it so much I can't even tell you. I work with such a diverse group of stylists, and they are really good! I actually have a Ton of respect for them.

One of my favorite parts of my job is just to listen to peoples stories. Everyone has a story. If I ever wrote a book I would just take random pictures of people and tell their stories. I think on occasion I will start anonymous writing the stories on here.

My favorite customer I ever had was this little lady who was retired, who traveled around the world trying to find the single best piece of chocolate. She amused be for probably 2 years with the stories of her travels. She would go to Switzerland, china, Italy, England and everywhere. Was it true or not? I don't know. But she came in to me faithfully and told me of the wonderful places she had been. Even if the stories weren't true, I think the time it took me to cut her hair was really a great vacation for both of us. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever met, I really miss her a lot. I hope as I age I can age as gracefully as her.
