After more than 50 bridal showers, 30 bachelorette parties, 80 weddings and 15 baby showers, it's not about you, my friends, any more. It's all about me. Check my blog for clues on whom I'd like to live happily ever after with. Each day, you need to think -- "Hmmm...would he be right for Lisa?" Then, when the right guy comes to mind, set me up! But, let's keep the contest between us girls (and select boys that are allowed to view my desperation).

Will there be fireworks?

Well, since it's a July 3rd party in the city, there definitely will be fireworks, but sparks may fly should I like new bf potential party attendee.

Frequent poster on my blog, "JK," is hosting a party at his condo which provides the perfect high-rise view of the fireworks. He also invited the "new guy" from his softball team for me to meet.

As I prepare for the big "meeting," any conversation tips? I mean, what if he's a dud. I know not to ask him if he wants a summer or fall wedding? I know not to ask if he wants kids. I know that he won't want to talk about shoes or purses.

Since most of my blog posters are boys, how about you boys give me some advice! Should I ask about fantasy baseball? Should I ask him to flex?

Help me out!

Damn split ends

Bad Hair Day #1
Many of you already know about my breakup with Roots hair salon, but for those you that don't, here's a recap.

Marty (remember over-achiever, leave-behind dater) was my hair stylist's brother in law. Let's just say it didn't work out so I really don't want her to take scissors to my hair. They're Italian and well, the "family" is real important so I don't want to mess with that. It's the risk you take when getting set up...

In search of a new hair salon, I ask the work girls. I get a glowing referral to place called J Gordon on Clark.

Appointment made. It's been 6 months since I've had a haircut so I'm ready!

Bad Hair Day #2
Last night was my hair appointment at the new place with the new stylist. I was expecting to pay a little more, sit in the chair a little longer explaining my do, but what I wasn't expecting was my ex-bf's new gf to be my new stylist!

Yes, I'm serious.

Old bf's new gf is now holding the scissors. Of all the salons, stylists in this supposedly big city, I just happen to be in her chair waiting to get my hair cut!

We'd met briefly a week before at a street fest where I had the pleasure of meeting up with him and new gf. (If only I'd had a really good looking red head to introduce, it wouldn't have been such a big deal!)

I don't think it's possible to overstate the irony of this! So please, feel bad for me and all of my coincidental happenings and find me a date! Wouldn't it be fun if my ex-bf were to run into me with my new bf?

You know the answer to that...

It's my blogerversary!

Yep, it's been a year since I created my husband contest blog! Wouldn't it be fun if I were celebrating my 6-month anniversary of dating a really cute red head? Yah, I think that would be fun too. But, I'm not.

Instead, I'm celebrating another year of singledom.

How did I celebrate you ask?

Ummm...I drank too much on Thursday night and made out with a random boy. Do I feel better? Not really. But, it was fun. A good anniversary present to me.

So, as I look ahead to another year of blogging, I'm asking you to not give up on me. For one of these set-ups will work one of these days, right?

I have one other favor to ask you, my friends, please post your comments! It's way more fun if I know you are reading because you are posting rather than going to check my site stats!

No date for the Cubs game!

Of course I still went, just not with a guy that would make Matt Murton jealous. Sorry it took me so long to update you all. Not sure I have a good excuse, just "busy," I guess. Which is one of my biggest pet peeves -- people that think they are more "busy" than everyone else. Aren't we all "busy?"

Hmmmmmm makes me wonder though...are all of you too busy to find me a date? I'm never too busy to go on a date. How about we make a deal? I'll continue to post my pathetic dating experiences and you promise to look at all eligible, single men through an new lens. Try thinking this, "I wonder if Lisa would like him?"

Let's review some must haves:
- Non-smoker preferred
- Love red heads, but will date other hair colors as well (as long as it's real, no guys that dye their hair)
- No couch potatoes, they have to do something active (and often)
- He can't think that camping is a real vacation
- A wardrobe must -- more than 2 pair of shoes
- Sense of humor -- please, you know me! No boring guys.
- A job -- he has to have one

Thanks (in advance) for thinking of me while you are out and about this summer!
