Change Can Be Good!

Well, I was really really nervous today when I went to get my hair cut. I was going to wait for Chauncey to take me, but I couldn't wait any longer so I just decided to take the bus (which was awful for about a million reasons, but that's another story.) Anyways, I went to Paul Mitchell Hair School because it was cheap and I wanted to give them a second (another long story) chance. I got there and I met the lady that would be cutting my hair. At first I was scared because she was a phase one student (phase two students are closer to graduation and phase one students are still learning a lot) but i didn't say anything. She had a teacher guiding her through the haircut so it took a good two hours. But back to the beginning of the haircut experience; I sat down and they decided to just cut the ponytail off before they washed it (to make it easier to wash and so the ponytail dry.) I wanted to donate my hair, but since it was highlighted they couldn't take it. BUT the school was able to use it for hair swatches so at least it'll get used for something. After they cut the ponytail i felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders (literally, not metaphorically), my head felt so light! I loved it. But I was also really sad, I felt like crying haha. I've had long hair for years now, so i was really sad to see it all go (I was really proud of myself for not crying though, last time I cut my hair off I cried big time).We then washed my hair and I got the best scalp massage ever. Then it was time for the haircut (like i said, it took soooo long). At first I was scared, but as she started to finish I really really started to like it. When she was completely finished I was so impressed! She did a great job. I really really love the length too. So anyways, Heres a picture :)

Cute, right? I hope so. I think it looks good, and it makes me look a little older (hopefully!!) Well, have a happy Wednesday everyone!

Time For a Change.

Yes, that's right people. It is time for a change. I've had long hair for a while, and I'm really getting sick of it. I like my long hair, but it's so hard to keep up and it's really hard to find the time to do stuff with it. Last time I got my hair cut, which was right before our honeymoon, I only cut off like 2 inches, and got more layers. It wasn't enough though. I need a big change. So I decided, along with some advice from Megan and Chauncey, to cut it off.  It's going to be a pretty big change.....are you ready to hear how much? I'm going to cut off 8 inches. To some that may not be a lot, but I am not very good with change, and I really really like my long hair, so this is going to be hard for me. I'll probably get it cut on Wednesday or Thursday. Wish me luck!

Here's a picture of my hair length now:

Pretty long right? Yep, too long, Okay, I'll post again with pictures of the after-cut a little later this week.

That's all. 

Ah, the Weekend.

Finally, it's the weekend. I don't know why I'm so excited, I've been able to relax more since I just ended school at the BC on Tuesday. But since I've been sick, I haven't been able to do anything fun OR productive. Anyways, I didn't really get a break in between my semester at the BC and my semester at SLCC. Like I said, I ended school on Tuesday, and then I started at SLCC on Wednesday. Luckily I'm only taking two classes this semester (one online, Math.) and EDU 1010 on Mondays and Wednesdays. So I have plenty of time to relax, but I also HAVE to find a job. That is a must right now.

Anyways, I guess I'm so excited for this weekend because I'll be able to spend time with my hubby (date night tonight, Del Taco with our multiple coupons, coloring, and thank you notes!) and we can FINALLY finish the DVD shelf Chauncey made us and put it in the living room. Yay for reorganizing!

Well I guess that's it, Happy Friday everyone!

Adventures in Haircutting

I forgot to mention, this past weekend I did something new. Something I've never done before.......I cut Chauncey's hair! With his mom's help/supervision of course. She has been cutting his hair, but now that we are married, I can cut it (also because I see him more). So now the baton is passed to me, and I will now cut Chauncey's hair. So yeah, just thought I would share that. I'm pretty proud of my self. I was kind of nervous, but I think I did a good job :)

Here's a picture, we were just messing with his hair, which is why it looks like that. Anyways, I should've taken one of the aftermath, but it looked pretty good :)

You Always Make My Day

I just wanted to share the nicest thing that Chauncey told me last night. We were having family home evening, reading an article out of the Ensign, and he was cuddling up against me (poor hubby, he's been so sick this week :( it makes me sad!) and he goes "You'll be a great mom someday" and cuddled more with me. It made me so happy that he said that because I've been so nervous that I won't be. Sometimes when I'm around other people's kids I get nervous because I don't know what to do, so I sometimes feel that I won't be a good mother because of that. Anyways, i know I shouldn't worry about that. I'll be okay, and it'll be a while before we have kids anyways. Well, I just wanted to share how amazing my hubby is, and how he always makes my day :)

Hogwarts Will Always Be There To Welcome You Home

"Well, this is it." That was my exact thought while getting ready for the Harry Potter midnight showing. We went as Ginny and Harry, and it was so great to see other fellow potterheads dressing up and shouting spells at one another. There was even a Voldemort in the crowd at the showing I went to, shouting Avada Kedavra to random people. When the movie started, we were silent. Just watching, amazed and astounded that this was it, no more books, no more movies.
I remember reading these books in the fourth grade, and in the fifth grade my friends and I would have contests as to who could finish the book first. Harry Potter gave me magic in my life when I needed it most. He was there when my parents divorced, when my mom remarried, when she was sick and dangerously close to dying. Harry gave me hope. I thought, if he can live through a dangerous wizard trying to kill him, then surely I can live through this.
Now back to the movie. Chauncey and I got there around 11:20 to be sure we didn't miss any previews or anything else they might have had. It was so fun to point out people that came into the theater dressed as characters in the movie.
Of course the second part of the seventh film was everything I hoped for and more. It was so great to see a softer side of Snape, (Alan Rickman was so very perfect for that role!). I still wish that the first Dumbledore didn't die, because the second Dumbledore was not soft enough. The Fist Dumbledore was soft, and gentle. His demeanor was perfect for the roll. Regardless of all of that, the second Dumbledore wasn't too bad in the second movie (part 2 of HP&DH).
Anyways, Overall I thought it was amazing. I cried along with the rest of the audience seeing all of those that we lost (Fred, Tonks, Lupin, just to name a few.) And again when it was all over.
The movies were magically made (pun intended) and I couldn't have asked for a better cast.

Thank you J.K. Rowling, for everything.
