Sorry it took me long than I had planned. I am sure you are all dying in anticipation... Its really not that big of a deal but I was sure excited and kind of feel like a not so Mommish Mom, (does that make sense?). Let me know what you think, and I apologize for the pictures, there is a reason why we pay to have these done for us!!

This is right before we left, the last picture of the polygamist hair, really I felt all I needed was a braid and a purple pioneer dress and I'd fit right in.

I HAVE BANGS!! I haven't had bangs since I was about 8 or 9 and they started about half way back on my head, thanks Mom I know that they WERE cool at the time!! Good 'Ol 80's!! But I really do enjoy them, we'll see if they last!!!

Not much change in the back, about 8-10 inches gone though, (depends on what part of the jungle you measured he he). It just finally looks good!!

Thanks again Michael, if anyone is in need of a great haircutter and a good laugh at the same time let me know, he is fabulous. The best scalp massages in the world, plus I am pretty sure he was more interested in Chad the other hairdresser than Connie or Me so I reassured Matt it was ok that another man was massaging my head!

Connie-- I had such a great time with you, a few straight hours for us to just chat, something I don't feel we do much anymore, between the wedding plans and two children!! I am so excited for you and can't wait till August!! WE LOVE YA!!!

Ode to Candace....

Candace is a creative soul. She finds great ways to express her true feelings. One way is to take self portraits. To honor her talents I have posted some pictures. (oh she is going to be thrilled ha ha) Candace please dont hate me, but this is what happens when you use others cameras.

how rude of me....

My birthday was a few weeks ago, actually almost a month ago, and I forgot to say what a GREAT day I had. So because I am still thinking of it, and I enjoyed the whole day, I am going to bore you all with a flashback to MAY 22, 2008.:

I turned 26 this year. And I can honestly say this was one of the best birthdays I have ever had. I told my Dad, I use to laugh when he'd say,"Oh its just another day, I forgot it was my birthday." As a child and teenager I thought to myself, "Yeah right, who forgets their birthday." Well this year I almost forgot.
That was until my fantastic family especially my very thoughtful (and very handsome i might add) husband spoiled me. The day started out great, Milo and Saige both slept in, as if they knew it would be such a treat for Mom to sleep in a bit. (OHHH THANK YOU KIDDOS). We just played that day and I had such a great time.

I received phone calls and texts from so many great friends, some i haven't spoken with in ages remembered me on this day!(WOW is all i can say, good for you guys!!) It really made me feel good that I have so many thoughtful people in my life. The neighbors, our best buddies, the Barneys brought me a yummy rice krispie cake!! Thank you by the way, I can attribute the extra large "dimple" on my thighs to that cake! After Matt got home he tried to play a trick on me. He told me he bought me some new floral pots, some of the ones he previously bought had died. He made me close the blinds so he could hang them up and I wouldn't peek. As I walked around the corner of the garage he had a BIKE waiting for me! Totally shocked and amazed, I just smiled and laughed, I had no idea this was coming. I had talked about it LAST summer, and he remembered! Its so perfect THANK YOU!!

He then took me out for dinner. He wouldn't tell me where we were going but just said dress nice. THANK HEAVENS, that means we are not going to Wingers!! ( Matt had a slight addiction to their wings for a bit, I'd be happy if i never went back!) He drove through Holladay and we ended up at the Boulevard. Oh my yummmmmmy!! A full on 5 course meal, no screaming children in sight, and actually a moment where I could speak and just smile with Matt. We had such a good time!! Thank you Scott and Lisa for watching the kids!! That alone is a great present!

The next night my family joined all together and we went to dinner at Cafe Trang. What an amazing group of people we had there. We just all sat, ate great food and had a fantastic time, at least I did! So thank you all-- I had a great day and would be happy if this was the last birthday I ever had, for more than one reason!!

And this is the reaction I got when I asked Saige to smile. Just like her Dad!

Milo loves rice cereal!! For those of you who may find this boring I apologize but I was quite excited for Milo to begin this next step in life. Our family LOVES good food, well everyone but Saige (that would require her to sit for longer than 5 minutes). Milo ate quite a bit, but what do you expect from a 17 pound 4 month old. OH I LOVE CHUBBY!!
