Beef jerky, pez, and a little Red Hot Chili Peppers

The road from St George to (what I have heard is FREEZING today) Lehi seems to last forever. The 4 or so hours it takes can only be survived with good music, good snacks and of course good company. The end of a wonderful weekend is coming and I am just not ready to return to sweaters and pants. Oh well here we come......

This is the only time I can ever get a picture of Matt. What do you think of the stache?

salmonella blamanella

Craving cookies tonight. I usually want the cookies but once I start making them realize I just want a taste of the batter. So it usually results in lots of cookies sitting around the house and then get thrown away 3 weeks later. Tonight on the menu dark chocolate butterscotch chip cookies. So if you want to stop by anytime tonight there will be hot cookies waiting for you! Or if you teach my primary class like Julye did last week, you will probably get some delivered.

What's your thought on salmonella anyway? Does it scare you away from the dough?

Does anyone else chicken out when it comes to changing their hair? For some odd reason, my long hair is somehow connected to my identity, and I am terrified at cutting it. If you haven't noticed over the past few years, it has gotten shorter and shorter (right after I had Milo, it was almost to my behind-really!?!?) But thanks to some mighty fine help from Michael (my sister's amazing hairstylist) who first got me to chop it, and my lovely sister in law Shana- who actually will come to my house and do my hair, and has done a great job of getting me to change and update my style--I have been able to let myself cut it a little at a time. I thought I was finally ready for change!!

My sweet sister Candace, asked me to help her out and take her appointment with Michael. She made it months earlier but as it got closer she realized she wasnt ready (she wants to let her hair get a bit longer for a perm!! Cannot wait to see it Candi!!). So with a few days to decide what I wanted to do I decided to go in and let him do whatever he wants. Well I chickened out and kept it pretty much the same! Its shorter and lighter in color, I have some blonde in it and it is a great change, but I was gearing up for a BIG change.

Okay- so here is the plan. I am going to make it public so I cannot go back on my plan. I mean all 5 of you reading this will hold me too it, and I cannot let you down:

Please tell me I am not the only one who has loved America's Next Top Model, since like day one of the show? You can find it on anytime of the day, between Bravo, VH1, any of those stations that love to play reruns, yep I watch it (okay not everytime it is on, but you get my point), so I fell in love with Brittani's hair here and think this might be the cut. But instead of the jet black, or even red hair that I have now, I am thinking of going blonde. It's really the one color that Matt hasn't see my hair (that was high school days, and sometimes those days arent worth repeating haha), but I think with the help of a good colorist- not my friend Ashleah in her bathroom, we can make it look great.

Something like this. Little golden honey. We will see. But now it is out on the table, and I cannot go back. haha.

What are your thoughts? Terrible idea? My hair grows like a weed, so it will be great for Summer, and if it is a terrible idea, then it will quickly grow back!
