Melissa did you design the featured contributor banner showing your pix ? Smiley Wink

 

Lovely stuff , caught my attention right away and its one of the coolest banners I have seen in a while on the community forum.

I skydive and ski, but I'm terrified of heights.

awesome! I thought your hair was just pulled back like in a pony tail, but now I see you have cool rocker hair. Awwww yeah babyyyyyyyy.

 

I am terrified of heights too and was thinking about flying lessons. I was reading a story by someone else who did it. Spent about $25k for the total amount of classes, and then chartered a plane across his state. Pretty cool!

 

If you do it let me know, because It's something I've been considering myself.

 

And you didn't mention Orangetheory, missy. Smiley Very Happy

Know what's funny? In my profile pic my hair is just pinned back. I shaved the side a couple days after taking that photo. I keep wanting to go shorter, I think I might do the other side and leave the top all moppy. It's curly, so it does whatever the heck it feels like anyway. There's no use trying to tame it. Plus, it's only hair... it'll grow back. 

 

Re: flying - do it! The hubs has had a life-long dream of gettig his private pilot's license. I, on the other hand, don't neccessarily enjoy flying. Had a friend die in a plane crash in college, it took the shine off the penny for me. However, hubs has type 1 diabetes and uses an insulin pump and constant glucose monitor. He's super healthy, in spite of the big D, but he still has to be medically cleared by the FAA before being allowed to start training. If he passes (and who knows when we'll find out since the FAA has had his application for 10 weeks already) I promised I'd also get my license so we could always have a backup in the extremely unlikely event of him needing some D-related assistance in the air. I'd much rather put myself out of my comfort zone and deal with my fears than spend the rest of our lives knowing he didn't get his license because I was afraid. I'm big on people following their dreams when they can. Couldn't very well discourage my most favorite person ever from pursuing his. 

 

And Orangetheory doesn't open until October! ;-)

That's awesome! Well not the D part... the flying part.

 

I like the hair a lot. You're right about the curly making it work. It looks good. I like it. 

 

And oops about Orangetheory. I forgot that part.
