What the hair did you do?

So this is my new hair cut. I just got it done last night and I'm still getting used to it. It's a little shorter than I had originally expected but I'm pretty sure that I say that every time I get it cut. Also, the girl that does my hair had it curled in towards my face and I think that might have had something to do with my discomfort. It scares me everytime I look in the mirror but it's also growing on me.

I absolutly love working with kids because they always tell you the straight, flat out truth. Not sugar coated one bit. Some said that I looked pretty and others said I looked silly. When one four year old girl told me that she liked my new hair cut, I asked her, "Do you mean that or are you just trying to make me feel good?" and she said, "I'm making you feel good Ms. Cathy." Adults, on the other hand, are a little harder to read cause I never know if they're being sincere. Some I could tell truly meant what they said and others I knew were full of crap. You can always tell when someone doesn't know what to say when the first thing that comes out of their mouth is, "So do you like your new hair cut?"

Trabin Fever

This past weekend I went camping with some friends and had a regular redneck white trash time. We drove 3 hours up to Pinedale on Friday night to stay in Greg Brimhall's trabin (side by side tralor cabin). We spent our time shooting guns, riding quads, and bunny chasing. I think the funnest time had to have been bunny chasing. Saturday night me, Briley, Greg, and Wyatt all got our warmest clothes on and took the quads out to some open fields. As we're riding along bunnies will just pop out of bushes and lead us on a wild chase. We never catch them or run over them but man can those bunnies maneuver.

The weather up there was amazing. About 75 degrees with a small breeze. It definately felt good to get out of the 105 degree temps we've been having these past few weeks. I absolutely love camping, especially with good friends. It was a perfect, relaxing, well-needed weekend

Its my decision

Ever since I applied to BYU I always had this little uncertainty about it but would just brush it off cause it was so far away. Then when I got my acceptance letter, everyone was real happy for me but that feeling never went away. Then in March I went to a fireside with some friends that basically talked strait to me. I've never had an experience like it. My friends came out thinking that it was the biggest waste of time and I couldn't see why. It talked all about how life is all about making decisions and specifically mentioned the choice of going to BYU or ASU. I realized that when I only applied to BYU, I only gave myself one choice, so I started applying to ASU. I have thought and prayed about what I should do for a few months now and finally this past week made my decision to stay in Arizona and become a Sun Devil. I was finally at a point where I felt good and could start telling others about my choice. My friends were 100% supportive which made me feel even better. I got mixed reactions from my church aquaintences who all thought I was staying for a boy. And then it came down to my family where I got pretty much nothing but crap. One reaction was "You could still live in Utah and take ASU online courses" which makes me feel like I'm not wanted here. I understand that BYU is a good school and I know that I could be happy living up there because I have a lot of really good friends that go there as well. But my decision is ASU. I honestly don't have a logical reason why this is except for the fact that I feel that it's where I'm supposed to be right now. Its not because of boys, and its not because I'm afraid to move out cause frankly, neither of those are a factor. Basically ASU just feels right. Its my decision and I hope that everyone can be supportive of it

Pork check

Well I guess you could say that I'm following the crowd now. Everyone else is jumping of f the brindge and doing a blog so I'm jumping in right after. I might not post as religiously as some other family members I know but I can tell you that I'll do it more than Mike.
