Prompt Challenge - Day 8

Day 8 - A Place You've Traveled To

One of my most favorite vacations was the last cruise we went on.  We went to Panama, Costa Rica and Belize.  Those 3 places have become some of the most memorable places from any of my vacation.  We had so much fun and had awesome adventures at each port.

In Panama we went to the Panama Canal, the forts at Portobelo and Iglesia de San Felipe.  Here are a few photos:

In Costa Rica we went Zip-Lining and it was sooo much fun!

Then in Belize we went cave tubing.  This was seriously awesome.  Indescribable.

Prompt Challenge - Day 7

Day 7 - Favorite Movies

I am horrible at remembering movies that I love when I am asked this question.  There are a lot of movies I love. Here are a couple that I can seriously watch over and over again:

In my opinion, the most under-appreciated of the Disney movies.  It is hilarious!

 One of my favorite right now.  If I ever had a little boy I am gonna name him Declan after the cutie in this movie =)

Hands down, one of the greatest romance movies ever.  At least in my opinion.  The last scene breaks my heart every time I watch it.

I LOVE musicals.  All of them.  But if I had to pick one that I could watch everyday, it would be this one:
 My cousin and I seriously watched this movie almost everyday for years!!  I could recite the whole movie to you if you like:

ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE.  no question about it:

Prompt Challenge - Day 5

Day 5 - Your Favorite Recipes

Ha!!  I don't know which would be more funny.  Talking about how I have never cooked a meal or throwing out a recipe and having my family laugh at me because they know I have never cooked before!!   I am not a cook.  At all.  If you want Top Ramen or a Cup o' Noodle, then I am your girl.  Luckily, I can bake.  That is the one thing I can do.  I am gonna end up living off of cakes and cookies eventually.  I really don't have any favorite recipes.  But when I eventually build up the courage to cook a hot meal I will let ya'll know =)

Prompt Challenge - Day 4

Day 4-Your Parents

Wow.  Where do i even begin?!  lol.  Let's start by saying that my parents got divorced when i was 2 years old and i haven't seen him since.  I have come to the realization that my life would not be what it is if he had decided to stick around.  My mom is my best friend.  I am a only child so it has always been me and her against the world and i wouldn't have it any other way.  We pretty much do everything together and even though she can really drive me nuts sometimes, she is pretty awesome anyway.  If i ever decide to have children, i can only hope to be half the mom that my mom is.  She doesn't have a spectacular job and she doesn't always to or say the right things, but she has always spoiled me rotten.  She is an amazing cook, loves to gossip and would give you the shirt of her back if you needed it.  We both have fixed our schedules so that we have Tuesdays off of work to just hang out.  We go to Disneyland or to the movies or go shopping and have lunch.  I know i would be totally lost without her!!  Here is me and my momma:

Prompt Challenge - Day 3

Day 3-Your First Love

Oh man.  Lets see.  I had a boyfriend my freshman year of high school.  I had another my sophomore year of high school.  But my first love didn't come along until Junior year.  His name was Tim.  He went to a different school and we met through mutual friends.  There is not really a huge story here other than we were in love and we dated for a year.  The one thing i really loved about Tim is that he used to write to me.  Most guys have trouble writing down how they feel, or at least most don't take the time to actually write.  Tim did.  Here is a layout that i made a while back with one of the notes that he sent me:

Prompt Challenge - Day 2

Day 2 - Meaning Behind Your Blog Name

When I first started cutting hair I was advised by my tax dude to start my own business.  This ended up being a HUGE mistake, but that is a whole different story.  Needless to say, I had no idea what to call my business.  I had a purse made when i was in cosmetology school that was of a Skull and Crossbones, but instead of the crossbones it was a pair of scissors.  Hence, my logo.  That is the same design that is on the purse i use more than any other purse.  So my tax dude came up with the name Tanya's Crossbone Cuts.  It just kinda stuck.  So i use if for my blog and as my design name.  I am not sure i am still in love with it so when i actually start selling products, the name might have to be changes.  Not quite sure yet.

While you all are here, i would mind a little help coming up with a new design name =)  If you have any suggestions or ideas, leave them in the comments.  Thanks for stopping by!!
