spontaneity is fun

My hair is short. I'm not sure if this was really spontaneous because I have been asking those I trust the most if I should cut my hair short for several, several months.


Last May...

Me: "Hey Fashion-Savvy Beautiful Melanie, what do you think about me cutting my hair off?"
Melanie: "Don't do it. Your hair is beautiful. I'm trying to grow mine out."

Last sometime...

Me: "Hey trusted friend with awesome short hair Emily, I'm thinking about cutting my hair short."
Emily: "Really? Your hair is so awesome. If you do it, though, go all the way."

Last November...

Me: "Yo Mamma who has witnessed several of my spontaneous hair decisions, I want to cut my hair short."
Mamma: "It would probably look cute!"

Thank you, mother!

Last Saturday...

Me: " Valentina, let's go get hair cuts. I'm cutting my hair off."
Valentina: "Really? I need to get a hair cut anyway."
Aaron: "Oh my! You have to do it. You can't come back home until your hair looks different than it is now."

the turkey haze has lifted

Happy Thanksgiving! I think I am finally coming out of my food coma after Thanksgiving feast number one at the Robison's (where more over-eating continued for days afterwards), and pseudo-Thanksgiving semi-feast number two at the Kowallis's Sunday dinner. Then I made pumpkin chocolate chip bread and I seem to be the only one eating it.

Here are some things I've been dreaming about in my blogging absence...

1. Biker friendly Provo.

2. Pincha Mayurasana/Half-scorpion...maybe I should just work on the forearm stand first.

3. A HEADBOARD. The search has gone on too long. I think buying doors at the Re-store is looking like the best option.

4. A haircut like the above...even though I know it will turn out like the below, though probably not as perfectly curled, a lot more frizzy, and not that awesome strawberry blonde.
5. Tan, real leather, flat, ankle high boots. Please, if you have seen such boots anywhere, tell me where! I have been looking for months. (The boots pictured are out of stock online.)

6. Log mini-tables.

7. An oriental rug.
