....okay so it's happening again.  My hair is gonna have to be cut....remember the 90's rocker phase?  yeah, well i made it past that this time with some layering from gina jill....but i have officially had enough of i'm gonna chop it off this week. 

lemmee tell you why....i know you were itching with here it is:  i have been growing my hair out for the longest "just in case" i happen to meet the man of my dreams and got married...and lets be honest i've only been planning my wedding since i was no pressure right?  well i was thinking the other day about how a wedding is supposed to reflect the i'm a pretty simple rustic chick and most of my ideas go along with that...and how my hair isn't really gonna matter....that no matter what it's gonna be awesome because we're both gonna be if my hair is short when i get'll be short...but it'll still be just as cute and maybe even cuter because it will be more me....

now....back on track.....

it is currently about mid back....and i wish i had a picture to show on here, but i'm definitely not gonna stop this post just to take a picture...soooo...y'all will just have to deal...but what i can provide is the "inspiration" and in this instance i used that term loosely....because the picture i really wanna to take to the chick is incognito, but i swear i pinned that sucker!  so we will have to settle for 3 different ones that i'm literally gonna go in and show the pictures...and just say combine these....have fun!

So this one i think i like just because its a little curly...which my hair does naturally so i thought would be good i guess....but i think i deleted this one from my photo list....who knows.

 this one i really like the length (i think) and it's just cute...sue me
I think i've done this one before....why not add a little dimension...right?

This one i absolutely....LOVE LOVE LOVE....i think it may be a little short for me to pull off...but i really like it.....and i'm singing in a fundraiser on saturday so it can't be absolutely horrible...right?

So their is the selection....i realize that its basically the same hairstyle styled 3 different ways (you're welcome gina) but they look different...and she'll know kinda what i wanna pull off....which is good.

So hopefully when the deed is done i will get back with a picture for know for the 2 people who read this blog...but you know...just in case....who knows...maybe one day it will go viral!'s to dreamin, the record...not really a dream...

anyways....until next's to keeping it real!

soapbox: facebook

okay, so you know that whole i can post with my phone thing....yeah...well it made my phone go haywire so i deleted that back to good ole fashioned computer (if that can be considered old fashioned)

so....i think i should facebook less.  which is saying something considering i facebook a good once a week at the most....but it is definitely causing feelings of inadequacy.  For instance, comparing my life to other people's lives....just not gonna go anywhere good.  I am of the philosophy that we are led to certain places in our lives for certain reasons, and i see all these pictures of people having so much more fun (ok ok a different kind of fun) at BYU than i did, and i find myself being jealous....but i would never begrudge those experiences that i had.  I had good experiences at BYU....just different ones than you and that is perfectly okay. 

so what if i'm still single?  just because my life hasn't turned out exactly like everbody elses doesn't mean that i haven't developed into something.  i truly believe that a person needs to be comfortable single and confident in themselves before they can be comfortable in least for me.  am i comfortable being single...for the record...yes, but that doesn't mean that i don't long for the companionship and love that comes with just means that for now, God has other plans for me.

nothing good can come from that kind of comparison.  we were all put on this earth for a reason and all have a mission, and just because i wasn't given the same talents or gifts as you were doesn't make me any less lovable, accomplished, or valuable.  we all are different for a reason.  i think its better to put ourselves together and use all of our different gifts to help each other.  it'll much more fun to cross that finish line linking arms with my fellow sisters, helping each other out, than going across utterly alone having everything in the world!
