This year, Gared's super nice parents invited me and Jenna to spend Thanksgiving them and Holly and Gared. They have THE coolest cabin! It was really nice to get out of Provo for a day. Madre sent me with a mission: Get. Pictures. Well, here they are :)

Awesome view.
Jenna and I hiked around before the feast, and we played around a little in this tunnel.

Ok, back to the Cabin. This is the basement. Lots of space, lots of storage. Very nice :)

Here's the main level.

View from the stairs, and the loft. Aren't Holly and Gared soooooo cute?! :)


I find that I am running out of things to blog about. I don't have many interesting things going on in my life! I go to school 3 days a week, and the other 2 days I look for jobs, and on Saturday and Sunday, I sleep! Occasionally on Saturday's I go do fun things, like roller skating, or rock climbing. On Thursday night I saw the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn with my Roommates. We went a little crazy with the costumes and makeup. Brooke is obviously Edward, and I am just a vampire. We stuffed a pillow up Rose's shirt to make her look like a pregnant Bella. We got a lot of stares. And surprisingly, no body else was dressed up! Don't people make a big deal out of Twilight here!?

This week in school I get to start cutting hair. I am so excited! I'll update again in a few days :)

School school school...

Friday was my class's very first model day. Periodically throughout my time at Aveda I will have to have find models to come in and showcase some of my services. This week I had all of my roommates come in and get a manicure, pedicure, wash and style, and facial.

Holly was my model for facial and wash & style. Isn't she so pretty?

I knew that Aveda wasn't just a typical hair salon, but I'm always surprised by how much stress relief and massage rituals we have to learn. With every service we give, we also have to perform a Stress Reliving Ritual. It's a lot of work. We have also had to learn the names and uses of every skin care product and hair product Aveda uses. Each product has a special family name, and then individual name, and we have to know them all, what's in them, how to use them, what types of skin and hair to use them on, and so forth. It's a LOT! And most of all, it makes me want to buy all of it to take home, especially since we are allowed …
