Cosmetology girl problems. That's what the hash tag means. Don't worry, I don't use that phrase seriously, I just know that if one my fellow classmates was to title this blog post, she'd probably give it a name like that.

I changed my hair yesterday. Big surprise, I know. So as I was thinking upon all my many changes, I thought it would be fun to create a montage of my hair throughout school.

This was me on my first day at school. I had done absolutely nothing with my hair up to this point. I had just spent an entire summer living in a tent in the middle of the wilderness, and I was struggling to get back into the whole doing-your-hair thing. Thank goodness I have curly hair! That pretty much saved me.

My first item of business? Cut the mullet. As pixie cuts grow out, they tend to get very heavy and bulky in the back, thus giving the mullet effect. Very un-cool. If you're gonna grow yours out, you gotta stay on top of the mullet!

This is sad to admit... but a lot…


He's not even one day old yet, but I'm already obsessed with him. This is the first of my sister's babies that I haven't been able to hold and cuddle with right after he was born. It's killing me! I want to be in Michigan right now.

Look! He's waving at me. I must be his favorite aunt...

I love this picture. This is just the cutest bunch of kids I have ever seen. I love them!

Apparently Andi is having her world rocked with this new baby, but she seems to enjoy rubbing his head. I'm sure they'll all get along, and be the cutest family in the world!

I miss you guys! I wish I was in Michigan with you! Only a couple months until I get to hold this little guy!

Life Was Good

I got to see my parents last week! It was wonderful seeing them again. I thought I'd grow out of this eventually, and want to be independent and live away from my family, but I actually miss living at home. Life was so much easier. I didn't have to pay for food, or gas, I had wonderful friends, I had more money, life was real easy. I just wish I could go back and live it all over again. I wouldn't stress out nearly as much as I did. I'd just enjoy life while it was easy and stress-free :)

Anyways, it was great seeing my parents. Dad took us to a BYU football game. We won :)

Dad looked pretty legit on the motorcycle. He even took me on a ride! I used to hate motorcycles, and I still don't love them, but again... I shouldn't have stressed out so much about those sorts of things when I lived at home. Live a little! Nowadays we have very popular saying, "YOLO!" which means "You Only Live Once". Kind of dumb, yeah. I prefer Carpe Diem, but every…

Thumbs up!

Thumbs up! This was a good week! I spent a lot of time at work, made some tips from school, and spent time with my friends.

 Last week we experimented with putting beer in our hair at school. It's supposed to swell the hair, and give it more volume. Can't say it really worked on my short hair, but some of the other long haired girls noticed a huge difference. So if you want some great volume before a dance or special occasion, wash your hair with beer the night before.

I can't believe how well all of us roommates get along. We spend many nights up late talking, pranking, running around, and participating in the general college atmosphere.

 Today at school we took a field trip up the canyon. It is so beautiful right now. All of the leaves are turning, it's in the 70's during the day, and it feels like fall! My roommates are very festive and the whole apartment is decorated in cobwebs, skulls, pumpkin candles, etc... I love autumn. And I think Halloween might be my v…
