"One" by U2

Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
You say
One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
carry each other
carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much?
More than a lot.
You gave me nothing,
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
See we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love is a higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't keep holding on
To what you got
When all you've got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters, brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One...
One...

Diet Time Again


so i have 59 days until my wedding.

diet started again 3 days ago. i have to stick to it for the next 2 months so i can be a lovely bride.

the first 3 days of this diet makes me feel like pooooo. all the protein and raw green veggies i can eat. no carbs or sugars. bleh. body going through withdrawls and detox. not necessarily a bad thing, but feel crappy none-the-less. i lost 35 lbs on it, gained 10, lost 5 and now i'm back on full throttle, so we'll see how far i get this time. wish me luck!

ciao ~

Bridesmaids

i have been trying to decide what colors i want my bridesmaid's dresses to be. i recently saw the movie 'wedding crashers' and absolutely fell in love with the bridesmaid's dresses in this movie. i love the scarlet colored ones at the end, but this is the one i am speaking of :

i am also incorporating this color into my dress now. so it will be the green from below and this sand/nude color in the sash. i think it will be stunning.

so here's the thing. i haven't actually been to any bridal shops locally yet, but i would like the dress to be under $100 for my bridesmaids. since i am a bit granola and my dress is very eco-friendly, i would also love the bridesmaid's dresses to be as well...but if not, i can let it slide.

any ideas out there? and any links that you find, please feel free to let me know.

It's All About The Dress, Right?

so some of you out there might know how much of a non girlie-girl i am and i'm pretty simple as far as fashion/design goes. but i knew when and if i was ever getting married, i was going to have a very lovely, talented sweet mama make my dress for me. i will post who it is once i get the dress, so you'll just have to be in suspense until then. i did want to post the direction it is going in.


the above photo is the basis of the dress. it will be made from hemp silk charmeuse. (no you can not smoke my dress after the wedding, so don't even ask - i've already had plenty of requests to do so :p)
the above photo will show the color green sash that will be under the bodice of the dress. it will be this color green and my seamstress will also be incorporating another green (in place of the brown shown in the photo).
and lastly, the above photo is the rough sketch of my dress. originally we were going to go with the brown in the sash like the photo above this, but i have changed my mind and now we are incorporating 2 shades of green. obviously the colors in the sketch aren't true to actual color.

i'm so excited about my dress i can hardly see straight. anything else about the plans could fall into place by themselves for all i care. i can't wait to wear this gorgeous piece of art. :)

Is This Thing On?

howdy cyber blog world. i've been MIA for quite some time, but just had the urge to pop in and say hello.


a lot has happened since my last post.


the biggest news is i am blissfully engaged to my amazing fiance since november 7, 2010. our wedding date is set at march 26, 2011, but this is about as far as we've gotten. i am having my dress made and the lovely mama that will be stitchin it up is starting on it tomorrow :) i'm so excited. it's going to be stunning!





i am still getting used to the fact that i am engaged or hearing myself being called "fiance" or "soon to be wife", however, it didn't take long for me to get used to my ring being on my finger. i am not one that wears any jewelry with the exception of necklaces. i never have worn rings before. but i stare at it all the time. it's perfect, simple and beautiful. whenever it is off of my finger (washing dishes, washing hands, shower), i feel completely naked.


life is good!


i went through a horrible quick relationship that ended in june that i would rather not rehash. my fiance and i have been together off and on for 6 years. he came back into my life at the beginning of july and it was finally meant to be. our relationship is stronger than ever and our love for each other only grows daily. i am incredibly blessed and a very lucky woman.


and I'M GETTIN MARRIED!!!! :) :) :) :) :)


the ladybug is doing well. she's in the 6th grade (my eyes still bug out when i say or read that), learning to play the violin and making great grades. she's really excited about our engagement and the union of both of our families, which she will be getting 3 more siblings - 2 brothers and a sister. she's such a joy and such an amazing little person.


other than that, i lost a bunch of weight. 35 lbs to be exact. however, over the last 2 months, i gained 10 of it back. :\ so i'm back on my diet now and i've lost 6 of those 10 lbs already, but ultimately i'm headed for 20 more to be at my goal weight. then it will all be about maintaining.


i've also begun a life-program that is amazing. it's a process and something i will be including in my life for the remainder of my days, but i feel very positive about it. it's something that my fiance and i do together and it will be a major staple and strength in our long life together.


christmas is coming up entirely too quickly. this is my favorite time of year, but it comes and goes in the speed of light. AND i haven't gotten any christmas shopping done, so guess what we will be doing this weekend? joy. i wish i could just make everyone something, but obviously ran out of time to be able to do that too. gotta love procrastination.


work has been insanely busy and part of the reason why i haven't been posting on here at all as well.


so that's about it for now. i will try not to be such a stranger. i miss blogging. it's always a good form of therapy. ;)


hope my 2 faithful readers out there are doing wonderfully and enjoying life to the fullest.


~ much love ~

The Joys of MortgageLand

yes, these 2 stories REALLY happened. and today actually :

1. i underwrote a loan where the borrower has had 2 jobs in the last 2 years and his most current job, he was laid off and on unemployment for a couple of months THIS year. so i asked that the employer state the dates of unemployment on the verification of employment and MUST state that it was not likely to happen again.

broker responds with an email stating that the borrower is upset about this and why would we need this, etc.

i respond back with "unfortunately I need them to state that it is unlikely to happen in the future to establish stability of income. His employment is not 100% stable in my opinion."

so broker responds back with "what about his employment is not stable?!"

so we go round and round....this was last week.

this morning, we get an email from the broker...

"Good Morning,

Please do NOT continue working on the above file. Customer has cancelled.

Thanks"

so ivycurlz emails her back and asks if she wants us to go ahead and cancel out the file.

her response :

"please..................guess what.................Mr. S* lost his job !!!............guess the underwriter called that one, huh !!!"

----------------

2. "This is an emergency we are going to lose this loan if we don't fund for september. Conditions attached - lets get the CTC!!!

Thanks again, *name withheld*"

let me clarify that CTC means 'clear to close'.

so ivycurlz looks at the conditions that were sent in and the broker fails to realize that the written verification of employment that was completed by the employer states that the borrower RESIGNED 9/8/10.


DEAR LORD HELP ME.

__________________________________________

soooooo......

no, these scenarios did NOT happen, but we made fun anyway :

butterfly : Hey I have a borrower that has been at 12 jobs in the last 2 years and unemployment on top of that. But we PROMISE they will still be at their job for many years to come, so you shouldn’t need to prove stability of income, right?

Kthxbye.

farls : ok so my borrower has never had a job but promises to get one if you approve this mortgage loan.
Please condition for the promise note, and make that a funding condition...need to close asap!

ivycurlz : Scenario:
Excellent credit customer (mid 500’s) been on the job for 6 months (laid off twice in the last year its not their fault though I can get an LOX) and only 42 NSF’s in the past 60 days, what do you think?

butterfly : Hey! I need a CTC right now like yesterday like right now and here all my conditions and I’m such an idiot that I didn’t even see that the VOE says he had resigned. OMG> LOL. IDK. I’m so silly.

farls : I really need to close this file, the borrowers girlfriends, cousin's, neighbor's, best friend is going to promise to split the payment if he can use the garage for a pharmaceutical production facility.Borrowers promises this is not an illegal operation and will be very profitable, can you make this a funding condition? Really need to get this done before the end of the month.

Jeremy Spoke In Class Today

this is an odd post and entirely random as i haven't posted on this thing in so long, but this is sparked by a conversation i had over the weekend about the well-known pearl jam song "jeremy". years after the song came out i remember having arguments with people about who this song was about. it took me way back and brought back so many memories. i argued that this was about a kid that killed himself in richardson, a suburb of dallas. i would always get crazy looks and the "whatever" reactions.

i met jeremy prior to his death. the memory is a little hazy, but i remember his face. end of 1990-beginning of january 1991. i was 14, about to be 15 and in the 9th grade. i was over at my friend dusty's house one day and there was this kid jeremy there - if i remember correctly he had a friend or two with him as well. i remember us all hanging out for a while that day although i don't remember what we did. i remember that jeremy liked dusty very much, and i remember talking to her about him and her feelings toward him were not mutual. so i'm pretty sure they stopped talking. it wasn't long after that time that we had heard the news that he had killed himself in front of his classroom in a high school a few miles away from us. dusty and i had started to drift apart as friends at that time, but i do remember talking to her and she was so distraught by it and feeling like somehow her not liking him back had a part in his actions. we were just kids when this happened, but the affect it had on us was scarring. we were too young to understand.

so this morning, i got on the internet and did some research. there are interviews with eddie vedder where he does in fact state that this song was written after he had read the news about jeremy wade delle taking his own life in front of his high school classroom at richardson high school in richardson, tx.

going back to this time in my mind is so strange...i haven't visited that specific place in so many years.

jeremy, so many years after you took your own life, i think of you today and remember back to the day that you did this. i'm sorry that you felt like you had to leave this earth when you did. being a teenager was the roughest part of my life...it's amazing that many of us do make it out alive. i remember your face and seeing your photo has a true sense of eeriness. rest in peace, dear jeremy.
here's a good website dedicated to him : http://www.ssheps.com/jeremynew.htm

If You Love Someone....


boy: baby i've come to the conclusion that we need to be together forever
and ever
andever
and ever

girl: finally...took you long enough to come to that conclusion!
boy: im serious
I love you and I dont wanna not be with you anymore
girl: really?
REALLY?!?!?!
boy: baby
im serious

girl: i know i'm serious too
i never thought you would say any of this to me
my heart is racing
boy: well i am buddy
so just deal with it
girl: i would love nothing more than to deal with it
boy: you're the only person that has truly loved me and I was always to scared of it and always ran away
it scared me and i ran all the time
I dont want to run away anymore
girl: yes i know you did. and every time it broke my heart.
but i could never and would never force you to feel something you didn't
boy: im sorry
girl: please don't apologize
boy: I've always loved you
always
girl: just as i've always loved you
boy: no matter what i've said or done
always
and when we weren't together I missed you so much
girl: i almost don't know what to say
i feel like i'm dreaming

boy: i miss u
girl: i miss you too
boy: what do you think about what i said
??
girl: i'm still in shock. it feels like i'm dreaming.
boy: ???
girl: i'm speechless.
boy: i dont wanna be away from you again
girl: i never thought you would say those things to me
i don't want you to either
boy: well i saying them now
girl: so really? forever?
boy: we dont need to be apart again
ever
-------------------
i never knew if i truly believed in the saying "If you love somebody, let them go. If they return, they were always yours. If they don't, they never were."

it wasn't until i TRULY TRULY let go (and yes, there is a difference between saying you have let go and truly doing so - i've experienced both - the prior many times) and had moved on, that he came back.

so a girl falls in love with a boy again.

for the first time.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.


i would like to take a moment to put the spotlight on this young man! ....philippe cousteau jr is an absolute inspiration. he's come into the spotlight as of late with the oil spill. yes, he is the grandson of jacques cousteau. and look at him, he's pretty easy on the eyes to boot.

http://www.philippecousteau.com/

he's been on media shows recently speaking about the oil spill and offering his expertise and opinion on the matter. he is the CEO of earthecho international, a non-profit organization whos mission is to empower youth to take action that restores and protects our water planet. he is the chief ocean correspondent for animal planet and also for planet green channel.

what an inspiration he is and his work is dignifying.

so a handsome environmentalist. what more could you ask for? :p

"Can A President Be An Angry Black Man?"

Can A President Be An Angry Black Man?

please read and open for discussion.

firstly, this article is interesting and has some good points. however, i am getting a little irritated with all of the media's hype about the emotion / lack of emotion coming from our president. a lot of my respect and likeness for my president is that he is a calm and collective human being. black, white, green, orange...i don't give a flying frack. this is a sign of strength and intelligence in my opinion. it is not in his nature to be an angry person or a hot-head. didn't we all know this by now? george w. bush was a hot-head and flew off the handle every time we turned around. not to mention the fact that he is not very smart....someone like that is not someone who i want running our country. i want someone who is calm, collective and takes time to make a well thought-out educated decision on matters especially concerning the affect on my country. john mccain was george w. bush hot-head junior. he made that painfully obvious throughout all of the debates that mccain and obama had prior to obama being elected.

so either way....our president can not win. if he comes out flailing, he's automatically considered the "angry black man" by RWNJ's and if he comes out calm and collective, then he's not showing enough emotion. wtf people seriously. do i agree with my president 100%? no. do i support him 100%? yes. because i have faith in him and believe he has our best interest at heart for our country. do i think he should have acted a little quicker after the explosion of this oil rig? maybe so. but people need to quit putting all of this on him. this is not our president's "katrina" - which if i hear someone else say this, i am going to scream. he can't put on a wetsuit and become aquaman and dive 1 mile under the ocean and shut the leak off. he is doing the best that he can with the tools that he has. not to mention all of the other million pressing issues that our country has at the moment. he is only one man. one human man. have a little faith in him people and quit criticizing every little thing he does - especially something as trivial as showing the "correct" amount of emotion or not. ugh.

k thanks
:p
crackmonkey: no shit
he's talking about moving to dallas :I
before we started talking, that is
butterfly: well...that's a start :) :)
crackmonkey: too soon!
too soon!
too soon!
butterfly: well not FOR you... he was going to anyway right?
if he does atleast he would be close enough so ya'll can hang and get to know each other
sheesh
crackmonkey: yes. still, even talking to him feels TOO SOON!
butterfly: what's the harm in that?
:p
well if it feels too soon then don't do it
but you are doing it...
so....
crackmonkey: i know. ugh. i am a hot mess
butterfly: we all are
besides how can you define "too soon"?
sometimes meeting someone is the best way to get over someone else
off topic, john cusack totally tweets like he acts
horribly cute
and another thing...i don't know about this twatter business
it has managed to give me a headache...too overwhelming.
hehe
crackmonkey: oh whatever. i'll give you a tutorial. i really only use it a couple times a week, but check the ones i follow every day
butterfly: cafe brazil in deep ellum is serving apple chipotle chili as soup of the day. damnit! damn the beef! if it was turkey chili i would be all over that!
crackmonkey: YUM
i bet we could find a recipe and sub turkey
butterfly: oooooooooooooooh
gonna note that on my things to do list
good reason to make a big batch of it and have all of our non-commital friends come to dinner
we could make a drinking game out of guessing who will show
crackmonkey: yup - at my new casa!
we'll be eating chili for days
butterfly: LMAO!
we are ridiculous
crackmonkey: i know
so are they though
butterfly: good point
crackmonkey: they still act like 22 year olds
butterfly: it's like benjamin button. they are aging in reverse
well...
crackmonkey: LOL
butterfly: well...
not true because they didn't start out old, wise and mature
crackmonkey: if they were aging into brad pitt, that'd be ok
butterfly: LOL!!!!
