INK




Now I know there are plenty of you who do not LOVE or even LIKE tattoos as Matt and I do. I however LOVE them! It's a form of personal expression and it is just a part of me. Matt has been trying to sell his beater for the last 4 months. Of course literally the day he left for training...someone called about it..lol. We sold it for $800.00 LMAO just wanted to get rid of it, and the sudden influx of cash I waited until I talked to Matt to spend it. We discussed paying a few bills up, getting a few other little things on our "list" such as...pants...your son's can NEVER have too many pairs of jeans, and getting cupcake a new kennel so that she didn't have to sleep in the old shabby pop up on that continually collapsed on her. After that.....spend it on me! yipee! I went right out and replenished my very badly dwindling supplies of makeup...YAY and then.......went straight to my tattoo artist....lol. For those of you with ink you know how addicting they can be. I had shown Matt months ago a tattoo I wanted but finances just wouldn't allow it.


It HURT! lol...most tattoo's really don't hurt that much but OMG chest pieces do! It's just so much bone there....woooo LAWDY son! But sooooooo worth it. The shop owner even loved it and for some one who has been tattooing for 30 years......ink can get old and cliche. He actually asked me if I would be willing to show it as a competition piece for his artist at the next convention/competition in Tucson. Hey.....sounds like fun so I'm up for it! I've gotten so many comments and compliments on it. Matt has only gotten to see it as a tiny picture on a friends cell phone so I can't wait until March when he can see it up close. He LOVES chest pieces on girls..hehe....anyways enough gushing! It's two sparrows (which are traditional tattooing) and banner that reads, "ONE NOT AFRAID, NOT UNHAPPY" it means............I'm not afraid to live my life and live with the choices of it....you do your own! lol I had a loverly scar there on my chest from when I was so sick 3 years ago, and this covers it, so the scar on the right side of my chest is angry and raised for now until the swelling goes down in case anyone was looking close enough to really see that.

You are brave....I hate to much pain. The thought of needles would also make me chicken out! But way to go!

I want steak now, too! Yum. I'm not a big fan of tats myself, but I really think the birds are beautiful. I love those little 'spoil myself' gifts that occasionally come. Especially after you've had to pay bills off! Yeah. Sounds like you're doing well.

I was so mad at myself for screwing that up... Glad you had a great Christmas and that Matt's fam was so welcoming to you guys. Jealous you guys got to be in Florida, it is bitter cold here~ Good luck with everthing! Hope all goes well for Matt in Basic Traning! Tell the boys hi from us!
