I am getting excited about the new year that is quickly approaching.
2011 is going to be a lucky year, I can feel it.
After all 11 is my lucky number.
I've decided that 2011 (my 35th year) is going to be my "official" fire engine year.
When I was in high school, I got sick and had to do independent study for a while.
I also gained some weight and my self esteem was at it's lowest.
I would tell my Daddy about how bad I was feeling about my looks and my weight.
His response was that I was a fire engine.
I had fire engine potential, I just needed to see it.
My Daddy's version of a fire engine and mine are pretty much the same.
We both love Cyd Charisse.
His high school crush looked like Bettie Page.
(He had his class photo up in his office and he pointed out the girl he wished he had dated and I fell in love with her dark long hair, bangs, and red lips).
He also said that I should always wear bangs like Louise Brooks and a little bit of red.
But not just any red, it had to be the perfect blue red.
This year, I am going to be a fire engine.
I won't let the negative thoughts run around in my head anymore.
I'm going to wear lipstick and do my hair.
I'm going to wear those dresses I love so much and feel like a pin up model.
I'm coming up on my 36th year and I am going to make this 35th one fabulous.
So get ready 2011, this fire engine is ready to go.
Are you excited about the new year?
What do you do to feel like a fire engine?
