Not having loved ones who are no longer alive
Having long histories and memories with family and friends
What do you enjoy about adulthood?

Mary Kay® Lash Love Lengthening Mascara (I ♥ Black; $15.00) and Mary Kay® Lash Primer ($15.00)
These two products worked together to give me really defined and pronounced lashes. I loved it. This is the first time I've ever used an eyelash primer. The first time I used the duo I think I waited too long to apply the mascara after the primer, because the mascara wouldn't really stick to my lashes. The second time around I applied the mascara right after the primer and it worked great.
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color – Violet Storm ($22.00)
This is the first cream eye shadow I've ever used and I liked it. The color Violet Storm only offered a hint of color on my dark skin, but it worked for a simple day look. If I ever purchased another color I'd go for something in a brighter or deeper tone.
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush ($10.00)
This brush was nice. I used it once to apply the cream eye color but then after that I used my fingers. I prefer using my fingers to apply most creamy products, I just feel I get better application that way.
Are you looking at my lashes? LOOK AT THOSE LASHES! lol
Do you have any favorite Mary Kay products?

Lemon and Spice Grilled Shrimp
I made these this past weekend and they came out REALLY tasty. It was too hot to actually stand outside at our grill, so I used our George Foreman grill indoors, but they'd probably be even better put on an actual grill.
Chicken with Peanut Sauce and Sweet Potatoes
This wasn't very much of a win. It didn't have enough flavor for me, and the sweet potatoes came out too mushy for my liking. I don't think I'll be going back to this one again.
Salt and Vinegar Sweet Potato Chips
These were amazing. So good and good for you. Baked in the oven, not fried, NO OIL. I have a mandolin slicer which allowed me to easily cut the potatoes thinly and evenly and they were super crisp and tasty. I'm going to start experimenting with all kinds of chips.
Sausage and Potatoes
This was really good, but it took FOREVER to make. The potatoes took a very long time cooking on the stove top. I think next time I'll roast the potatoes a little first in the oven, then put them in the skillet to cut down on cook time.
4-Ingredient Peanut Chicken Ramen
I should have known better. I should have known this was too good to be true. This came out WAY too salty. It was just salty peanut butter noodles. I'll have to work on finding another quick peanut noodle recipe.

I've been on all three sides of the coin... if a coin could have three sides. I've been the friend with one-way romantic feelings for another friend. It sucked. It hurt to see him go through relationships with different women when I had a flame burning for him, but I couldn't force his feelings.
I've been the friend who another friend had feelings for but I just didn't feel the same. This also sucked because I was made to feel bad for not reciprocating feelings for a nice guy. But "nice" doesn't always translate into "romantically attracted to."
I've been the friend who got into a relationship with a friend who I didn't have romantic feelings for because he was nice and everyone said he was good for me. This probably sucked the worst because the relationship was just as one sided as my affections and the friendship could never be reclaimed.
All the scenarios are not ideal. But no one should be made to feel bad about having or not having romantic feelings for someone.
What are your thoughts on "the friend zone?"
