I remarried 13 years ago to a native Galvestonian and we moved 4 yrs ago from the city to Northwest Harris County and bought a patio home. My youngest daughter just got married to her high school sweetheart in July, destination wedding Cancun.... FABULOUS!!! I enrolled in cosmetology classes in '08, took the State Board Exams and finally have my license. I had been involved with bridal hair/makeup over the past 10 years so felt it was a natural progression and due time to kick it up a notch - I love it and already have some very devoted "clients". Do you dare sit in my chair?

School Story:

I have some wonderful memories of MacArthur, but experienced some difficulties because I wasn't the BEST student a teacher could hope for, in fact, I worked really hard for every "D" I got. I was distracted and bored because I'm a left-brainer (creative) and probably went along all those years with undiagnosed A.D.D. - sometimes I can't help but wonder if my teachers passed me just so they wouldn't see me back the next year! I've had the very good fortune of connecting with Sweetie Rodriguez and Suzi Bibb here in Houston and we used to team up at least once a month for girl time, until Suzi got married and moved to Kerrville, so we all converge there a few times a year. As different as we were from each other in school, and traveling in different circles, we're finding that we're very much alike in many aspects as adults, and I'm so grateful to have them as my friends :).....and they're BOTH newly married!!!
J and I have finally decided to buy a house so 2014 will be our year - he'll finish culinary school and I'll FINALLY have a place large enough to entertain - along with homebuying comes a special set of stresses but we're ready to take them on!
UPDATE: That home purchase I referred to, took place on closing Feb 26th and move-in on March 3rd! A custom-built patio home in my "old" neighborhood near Champions/1960. We're delighted to finally have roots (and not just the ones in my hair :) and Chef JJ has a kitchen of his dreams - as they say, better late than never!

Looking forward to our 50th reunion? Can that be???

So so sad to get this news.  Bob and I dated for a while, he was a super nice guy and I was really hoping to see him at the reunion.  I saw him at the last one and he was his old self, smiling as always.  I send my deepest sympathies to his family.   Rest in peace my friend.
