Locks of Love

If you didn't already know, I used to have long hair. Some days I miss it. Some days I can't believe I actually could stand it that long. Well, one day in AP Lit, Emily Wheeler convinced me to chop it and donate it. She had to walk with me to the office and watch me write my name down on the list. If she didn't basically hold my hand, I don't think I could have done it. Thanks Emily! :)

 I remember always thinking that my hair was short...even when it was this long. Obviously I was crazy.
 I was really sad the night before.
And here is my ponytail. I definitely don't miss having to wash and dry that much hair.

Blasts from the Past

Now that I am finished with the blog challenge, I am again looking for something to blog about. In general, I don't have much I can "blog" about. I'm totally just loving life right now. So, here is my new idea for my blog for a while. It was inspired by the Day 24 post. While looking through all my pictures of Shadow, I realized I have a lot of random pictures from my past. So I'm just gonna post a picture or two...or three...or more and give a little story so you all can know random little things about me. Sound fun? It will be for me!

 Oh boy, this picture. Braces, hair pulled back, awkward smile, John Deere t-shirt, yep that was me! :) Oh yeah and don't forget to notice that I'm wearing mouse ears with a veil. One of my dreams is to be Minnie Mouse. Ever since I set foot in her Disneyland house as a child, I knew I was supposed to be her. She has an awesome vanity with lighted mirrors, ginormous perfume bottles, hair brushes and makeup, a super cute little kitchen, a white picket fence around her house with hearts on it, and of course there's lots of pink everywhere!
Mickey even asked me (well more like stuck out his hand to me) to dance at the California Adventure block party. He could feel that I was meant to be inside that Minnie costume.
Isn't she cute? Ah, I so want to be Minnie Mouse!

Day 30

A photograph of yourself today + three good things that have happened in the past 30 days

Last photo booth picture! Yay!

Alright there have been many good things that have happened in the last 30 days. It's been a fabulous month. In fact, it's been such a good month, I'm not going to limit myself to three good things that have happened. Also, I have WAY too much homework and don't have time to decide on three things. Just believe me that good things have happened. :)

Day 29

Something you could never get tired of doing.

This is hard. I'm an antsy person and get tired of things fairly quickly. But I could never get tired of 


It's true. I love that feeling of going shopping and having lots of different bags from different stores. Ah, such a great feeling. And I love finding good deals.

Day 28

Your favorite movie.

Tooooooooo many. 

I think this will always be one of my favorites. I never get tired of watching it. 
I'm sure that as soon as I post this I will think of a movie I like better...but oh well. Just know that I love movies and have many favorites. :)

Day 27

A picture of you last year and now and how you changed since then?

Yucky. (Me not Kristin)

I am so tired of taking pictures of myself on photo booth. 

So that picture above...yeah...kind of speaks for itself. I have dramatically changed since last year for the better (I think). Old news, but I have lost 25 ish pounds and it feels amazing. I have learned the value of a healthy lifestyle. I still need to be better and have a lot to learn and probably some more pounds to lose but I never ever want to return to my "fat" days. I have changed in my attitude. I have become more positive and developed more faith in myself. I feel like a stronger person emotionally. Needless to say, I have changed  A LOT since last year and I am a much much happier person.

Day 26

A photo of somewhere you've been to.

Paris! This was the most amazing trip of my life. I'm sure all of you have already heard about it but it was a dream come true.

Day 25

What's in your purse?

There is way too much stuff in my purse. But I have a wallet, sunglasses, chapstick, ibuprofen, my JCPenney nametag, a bunch of receipts, my keys, and sometimes a water bottle. I think that's it.

Day 24

A photo of something that means a lot to you.

I did intend to just put one picture...but as I was looking through my iPhoto, I discovered too many pictures that I just couldn't pass up. So here is the story of Shadow. :)

I love him. He likes to think he is human. I'm pretty sure he just tried to copy my position of sleeping.

At Christmas times, he always sleeps under the Christmas tree. Doesn't he just look so soft and cuddly? :)

For a while, I could never find him. I knew he was in my room and could hear his purring/snoring but he was no where to be found. My brother solved the mystery when he saw a big lump underneath my bed. He had torn the fabric down in my box springs thing and made a little home up inside. It was nearly impossible to get him out, we'd have to repeatedly hit the lump until he finally got sick of it. He would stay in there for soooo long.

 When I come home from school to visit, he does not like me to pay attention to anything but him, especially my computer. He makes it extra difficult to accomplish anything.

Isn't he just the most precious thing? Haha, I love him.

So yes, for day 24, I choose to put Shadow as something that means a lot to me. :)

Day 23

15 facts about you.

This should be fun...

1. I love to play the piano and miss taking lessons and competing.
2. I wanted to be a vet for the longest time when I was a kid.
3. Sometimes...okay a lot of times I change my outfit multiple times in the morning.
4. It drives me crazy when people who play hymns in church/class don't just play the hymn and they embellish the hymn so it makes it impossible to sing parts.
5. I love looking at professional photography.
6. I wish I could afford to only shop at Anthropologie and Banana Republic.
7. Sometimes I strongly consider dressing terribly for a while so I can get nominated for What Not to Wear.
8. I love surprises.
9.I really really want a puppy.
10. I love my family so so much. I love laughing with them.
11. I love singing in choirs but I did not enjoy BYU-I women's choir because there were WAY too many divas.
12. Laughing is seriously one of my favorite things to do.
13. I hate falling asleep in my clothes and I am not a fan of staying in sweats/loungy clothes for very long.
14. I love excuses to get really dressed up. I looked forward to formal dances so I could wear pretty dresses.
15. The commercials about saving the abused animals with the song "In the Arms of an Angel" by Sarah McLachlan breaks my heart. I cry every time I see it so I always change the channel if it comes on.

Day 22

A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.

Let's talk about how much I don't want to write this post. This just feels really weird to be writing this on my blog. This is going to be a short letter.

Dear You,

I miss you. I know we have worked through things but I still miss how it used to be. I miss being able to tell you things. But things happened for the better and I know that. I'm always here for you if you need me. 

Yep, that definitely felt weird.
