Hair Cut

So...my hair hasn't been cut since March. You heard me. And the last time it was cut, it was cut poorly. I have lots of reasons for taking so long: I'm lazy, as my hair has grown out the unevenness has been easier to hide, I'm lazy, and since we're new in town (yes I know how long we've been here) I don't have a "girl" here, so I was scared to just try someone.

I went for it today. I'd been thinking about keeping the length and adding layers, and then I saw this:
I think Alison Lohman (she's in Matchstick Men) is adorable (minus the impending wardrobe malfunction) and I looove her hair in this picture. So that's what I wanted.

Well, I know I can't always have perfection, but I almost cried in that chair, and I never do that when I get my hair cut (in every movie-yes). It looked like a reeeally short bob, which made my face look super fat. After she styled it I felt better, but I was still on the verge of tears when I called AJ on my way home. I felt like I looked like...a mom (sorry mom). I think if she had left some longer pieces it would be cuter–it's a pretty blunt cut all away around on the bottom. Well I got home and whined and then messed with it, and after my hair got limper (inevitably) I liked it more. SO. Here's a "before" picture I found:

And this was about as good as I could get it


And this is the after:


Dang that's short.



I've still got the mom thing going on, but trust me, it was worse before. And for the record, same shirt, completely different days. I think highlights or something could help add dimension, and I've also been messing with my part...I'll be honest, I'm not sure how things are going to go tomorrow when I try to do it myself.

K, this is where everyone tells me it's not so bad. :D

We're still here

I know, I know I'm horrible! It's been like 2 or 3 weeks since I last posted. I think it's because I don't have any photos of all the fun we've been having.

I LOVE SUMMER.

Had to get that out. In the last few weeks, we've hung out with lots of family (including my sis from NY yay), gone rafting, went to the Cache Valley Cruise-In car show, celebrated the 4th, had lots of ice cream, saw Get Smart, flew AJ's airplane, rode our bikes, had bbq's...I feel like I'm leaving out something, but that's basically what's been distracting me from documenting any of it.

Oh yeah, I just got a new driver's license too. It's horrendous. It looks like I have a femmullet.

No...that's not the exciting concluding fun activity to the list. I had to get a Utah license though (supposed to 5 months ago) and I figured now was the best time to do it. My bff Maren is getting married in August (8-8-08) and I just realized they might not let me get on the plane if my ID says Perkins and my ticket says Frisby. I would have had to depend on the fact that I'm a short white female who could never lie or cause any harm. Maybe it's stereotypical but I'm 80% sure it would have worked.

I'm pretty excited to fly out to California. I miss it so. I'm not gonna lie, I'm glad I'm here on a hot day rather than there, but every once in a while you just gotta go back to your roots. Maren's getting married in Oakland so it will just be beautiful. A.J. isn't going to go with me. We talked about it, and if he stayed here he could get a lot done on his Mustang. That Mustang Monthly event is in August too so we gotta get that thing painted and interior-ized.

So not a very detailed update, but just so everyone knows we are enjoying our summer and doing well. In fact AJ's fishing and camping with a friend right now in SLC, and I just bought myself some silver sandals from Payless that I'm in like with. Haha.

Since I didn't provide any photos, here's a super random one I'm sure I haven't posted yet. This picture is of the day our iMac arrived last March-ish of 2007. I still had long hair, and it was not cute that day. I had just gotten home from class and found AJ already playing with my new toy. (note: he opens all my packages) The first picture was of him so this was #2.



MAGNIFICENT!
