New Moon


So I didn't plan on seeing it. The trailers looked duh-umb, and I thought there was no way I was going to spend 10 bucks to see a stupid movie. So I made no plans, and decided I would wait for the dollar theaters. Buuuuuuuut Scoutmaster decided to take Madre and me on a date to see it. I feel bad for him. I don't think he liked it.
SO: I liked the first two minutes, then I didn't like it at all. And I didn't like the end either. Pretty much any of the parts with Edward I didn't like. But the middle, however ;) Those wolves sure are steamy! They were all so buff and tan, that by the time it got to the end and Ed had to stand in the sun shirtless, he just looked skinny and really really white. Not at ALL attractive. I knew I would be converted to Team Jacob once I saw New Moon.

Who cares about Edward anymore? Jacob is HOT!

Maryland


I visited Jenna this weekend! FINALLY!!! I could not wait! I have soooooo much fun visiting the U's. I feel like they are my second family. I LOVE their little town. Jenna and all her friends told me how they can't wait to get out, but I don't think I would mind living in a little town. It seems like everyone knows everyone, and you probably see your school friends everywhere you go!
We went down town, about the size of my back yard, the cutest little down town there ever was. We walked around a little pet shop and I wondered if some of the animals they had, they got legally. We also went on a walk through the beaUtiful woods. And then we went to a football game! It was FUH-REEZING! The only time I can remember being so cold is when I was at High Adventure camp in CO. I really like Jenna's friends, they are all very, very nice. Btw, there are way more cute boys in Maryland than in Texas.
The next day (saturday) we went to Annapolis. A two hour drive. But we asked each other "would you rather" questions the whole way so it turned out to be a fun drive. Jenna and I shopped and shopped and shopped.
Sunday we went to church. Then attempted to do homework. In the time it took me to finish one essay, and start on another, Jenna had already done hours worth of homework, and written about 4 essays! I guess you learn to go super fast a public school....
Monday morning I went with Jenna to seminary, then we had to part ways :( I even started to tear up again, but I know that I will see her again. Soon. Sis. U took me to the airport, and I got to see Amish people! I had wanted to see them the whole week and we never got the chance. But I finally got to see them, yay! Jenna and I have agreed that we would like to go live with an Amish family for one week.
I can't wait until I can visit again. There is still so much I have to see. I haven't eaten the famous crab, been to downtown Annapolis, or seen the monuments in DC. Next time! Can't wait!

I miss you already!

I miss her already :( When she first said a few months ago that she wanted to go on a mission, I could imagined the day she left with everyone else crying, and I would have a cool head. Sure I was going to miss her, but I was (and am) so happy she is doing what she is. It didn't bother me in the least bit. Then the day came and it totally flipped on me. Everyone else was fine. Only Grandpa got a little teary. I full out bawled! I still can't believe I lost it. Oh well. I miss her already. But I am not sad. Not at all :)

Before and After

I cut my hair!!! I am so sorry, Jenna, I know I promised not to until December but I just couldn't take it anymore. When my hair is long, the curls get weighed down or something, because my hair just won't curl! But all this weather we have been having won't let me straighten it either. It's the worst. I had to wear my hair the same way everyday: in an ugly, messy bun. It was horrible. So a couple days ago I said "that's it!" and I called our hairdresser to set an appointment.
And how embarrassing is this? I have never called to make an appointment in my life. So I was actually kind of scared, but there's a first time for everything and it all went great, so no worries!
When I told Jenna that I set a hair appointment she told me I had to take pictures of my hair before I cut it, so I have posted as many good pictures of my long hair as I could find:

Beach with Holly just last week.
See? It's not THAT long! Just long for me.

Drum roll please!...........
Ta-da!!!!

I love it I love it I love it I love it I love it I LOVE IT!!!!!
Of course I had to take an after-hair-cut photo shoot outside.
I haven't seen it curly yet, I guess I will find out what it does tomorrow when I take a shower.

And thanks again Caroline for driving me to the appointment!!!!

Mom and Dad and Holly are in Utah right now, sending Holly off! I put this up as soon as I could so Holly gets a chance to see it before entering the MTC tomorrow. What do you think, guys?
