Hair Color by Nicole

Nicole has done it again... made my hair fabulous. I love the colors. Now that I am getting grey hair (don't want to talk about it... it is making me depressed) I need Nicole's hair coloring skills more than ever. She is the best and I love it. I love how rich the color is right after.

She told me the only thing we haven't done with my hair (besides totally chop it which neither of us wants to do) is to turn me blonde. I told her I really like being brunette... but... if she showed me pictures and convinced me that I would look amazing as a blonde, then I might let her do it. We shall see. You would think since I come from a  family of all blondes, that it would be super natural for me to go blonde. I just don't know.... I love being brunette.

Package From My Sister Lori

I have been wanting skulls with antlers attached. Why? I think they are cool and want to use them in my decorating.

I always look for them when I am hiking in the mountains but I never find them. I found a rotting deer once on a hike with some antlers on it. But I would have to come back like in a month and hope that the bones were still there and that another animal hadn't dragged it off. I just haven't had the best luck.

I was mentioning my want of skulls while Lori was in town once. She said, we have one at our house that was found near their house. She didn't care to have it and said she would give it to me. Several months went by and I kind of forgot about it. Then I came home to a box from my sister, Lori.

I was so excited. Not only was the skull rad with some awesome antlers, but I loved the box that she sent it in. She put a message for every holiday since it came in March and she was going to send it for my birthday. It made me smile.

Thank you Lori! I will send you a pic when I finally find the perfect place for it. Love you!

Food at Work

We take our food very seriously at work. Sometimes we have left overs and we have to put it in the break room refrigerator and sometimes it gets taken by who knows who... but we get mad about it. So... this was our solution this time around. We will see if it works. Ha ha! If nothing else, it gave us a good laugh.

Sodalicious with Reanne

Finally got around to taking Reanne out for her birthday treat. I still am not over the fact that she is 14 year old now.  It is making me feel old.

Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 364

Another week gone.

I didn't do anything on Friday, and I blogged about snowshoeing with Lacy on Saturday. After we got done snowshoeing, we went out to eat at Rumbi's. Had fun getting some grub while chatting it up. It is fun that we can spend all day together and then want to continue the fun hanging out more while we eat. Sometimes I forget that she is married. I love that she wants to go on adventures with a single friend and that her husband doesn't care. I have hung out with him before when we went to Lagoon together. Super cool guy. I'm glad he thinks I am cool so Lacy and I can have more adventures together in the future.

After my fun day with Lacy, I met up with MacKenzie, Allison and Daniel to watch Blacklist. Our little tradition that we have started. We had two episodes to watch. So we grabbed Sodalicious as we always do. They also got food, but I had just eaten so I skipped that. Then we watched our show and then stayed for hours after the chat and catch up. I always love our little get togethers.

Sunday I went to church.... after church of course I had family dinner. After dinner, Kristy brought stuff for us to make cards again. So we did that which has become a fun little activity for us to do. I need to start using my cards now! After making cards, I headed to my cousin Dave and Heather's house. We needed to have a cousin meeting. They had asked me if I wanted to move in with them but I needed to start making plans and I had no idea when that move in would take place. So I needed to find that out. So we talked about that and of course a lot of other stuff because I don't see them a lot and we had a lot to catch up on. I love my cousins. They are the best. So much fun. I really need to hang out with all of them more often. I am trying to make the effort to do so... but life gets busy. I will keep trying though. I have always focused so much on friends my entire life. Of course friends are important and great... but the older I get, I have come to realize that family is the most important and the ones that you will be with forever... so I have become more picky with who I spend my time with the older I get and I want to spend more time with family.

Monday was another busy day. I had work all day. I had to work a little later than usual because it is month end and they are wanting to get all caught up. Then my good friend Daniel had asked me if I would come to his ward's talent show so that I could take pictures because his co-chair didn't find someone to do that like she was supposed to. Daniel has done so many favors for me, of course I would do this for him. I didn't want to go a lone, since I didn't know many people and I have been out of the singles ward for a while now... so I dragged MacKenzie with me. Love that girl. So we watched the long talent show and got scraps of food towards the end. The talent show was OK.... Daniel's was last and was the best. He and our friend Tom did the dance from Napoleon Dynamite. I talked to a few people I knew after... like Tanner. He is super nice. He was roommates with Ty because Ty got married. We seem to run into each other a lot in random places. So it was fun catching up with him for a little bit.

Then MacKenzie and I left for our Monday night tradition. Watching the Bachelor with her roommates. So we did that and then of course I stayed and talked with them until midnight. ManKenzie and I can just talk and talk. I really miss living with her. But I probably am more productive now that she isn't living with me. ha ha.

Tuesday I had to work a little late again because it was the last day of the month. Trying to get all those orders in. Which has nothing to do with me... but I have to help peer check. Anyway... after work I ran to Thanksgiving Point to meet up with Desiree to see a movie. We went and watched Hidden Figures. SOOO good. There were several times during the movie that I just wanted to stand up and clap. ha ha. I love movies like that. Movies that are based off of inspiring true stories are always great movies. We both loved it and of course it is always good to see Desiree. She is such a great friend.

Wednesday I got together with Julia again for our little singing sessions. We are still in the beginning phases and are most just talking about what we want out of this entire thing and we also get distracted a lot with chatting about other things going on in our lives. Either way... it's a good thing. It has become a little bit of music therapy. I am excited about the songs we are going to be singing and potentially writing. I miss singing so I am totally excited about this. We also have similar taste in music. So a fun night with Julia. I just need to get better at the guitar so that I can play with her. I will work on that.

That brings me to tonight. I had a date with a guy that I met online, named Drew. He lives in Salt Lake, so we met in Lehi and went out for smoothies. It was simple and we just chatted and got to know each other. Grew up in the church but left.... like so many of the guys I meet. Makes me wonder if that is just my pool now and if I want to get married I might have to give up the idea of getting married in the temple. I hope not. I'm trying not to give up hope, but my dating pool hasn't helped. It was a fine date. Did we have a fun chat. Yes. Was he nice? Yep. Was there a spark? Not really. Do I think we will go out again? Probably not. I'm totally fine with that because I wasn't really excited about this guy or this date. It was just a nice time. So no mom... you don't need to ask me about this guy. It won't go anywhere. :)

And that is my week. A busy one this week. I like them this way... but I should use my time better at home when I do have a lot of nights with no plans. I should be spring cleaning. I need to finish my book of my trip to the Middle East. I REALLY need to finish my Havasupai video so my friends stop bugging me and also so I am not SUPER far behind. Ha ha... yeah... I need to stay more productive when I am home. I just wish I weren't so tired by the time I get home. Oh well. I will get there.

8 Years

Still at the same job... 8 years later. Who knew that would happen? Not me. Kind of crazy. Thankful they have treated me well enough that it has made me want to stay. 5 Minute commute is great, my co-workers are pretty great too. :)
