Because I felt like blogging....

Do you ever have one of those weeks where you feel like you are on the verge of tears almost every second of every day?  Well this past week was one of those weeks for me.(If you never feel like this, then I want to be you.  Sometimes I think I have more emotions than the average girl.)  I can't really find one main reason for why this past week was like that.  There were just lots of little things that made it a not so great week.

Maybe it's the fact that the year is almost over and some things that I had hoped would have happened by now, haven't.  Maybe it's because a woman in my ward accused me of not fulfilling my (former)church calling while at a ward activity.  Maybe it's because there are about a thousand things I still want to do to our house before winter comes.  Maybe it's because there aren't enough hours in a day to accomplish everything I want to.  Whatever it is, I hope this funk goes away real soon.  Poor Josh.  I am not a very good wife when I'm like this.

Anyway,  I'm trying to think positive and count my blessings.  I have a lot of blessings.

I have a roof over my head.  I live in a home in a neighborhood and ward that I love.

I have a cute husband who is always logical and quick to forgive me of my faults.

I have a wonderful family and fabulous inlaws.  I have the cutest little pomeranian that ever lived.

My nieces are dang cute and I love them and I know they love me.

I have wonderful friends that are always willing to listen and be there for me.

My face has finally cleared up after being attacked by zits the entire summer.

I am blessed to have the knowledge of the gospel and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to be spiritually fed this weekend by the words of our beloved prophet and apostles.

I got my hair done yesterday by my wonderful mother in law and there really is nothing better than fresh blonde and a fresh cut.  I am loving my new bangs.

I got some new hair products at cost thanks to my mother in law.  I love getting new hair products.  Especially for cheap.

I have a new church calling that I absolutely love.  I am now the Mia Maid adviser and I absolutely love and adore the girls and the leaders that I work with.

One of my darling Mia Maids made my week when she asked me if I would give her a ride to Wal-Mart tomorrow and help her pick up the products she needs to complete one of her Personal Progress projects.  It made me feel so good that she just met me and she didn't hesitate to ask for help.   I love her so much already.

I have so many blessings.

Here's to a better week!

hair help

Okay friends...

I'm getting my hair done soon and I need some advice.  I am so sick of my hair right now and it doesn't help that I have two inch, dirty blonde roots.  blah.  Overall, I'm ready for a little change.  Nothing drastic, but just something to spice things up a bit.  Maybe some more layers-since mine are practically grown out and maybe some cute swoopy bangs?  You be the judge.  Here are some pictures of styles I like.  Please share your thoughts.

Love the bangs.  Not too short and not too thick.  But obviously I wouldn't let them hang down into my eyes like that.  

Carrie always has perfect hair.  I love the idea of bangs when wearing your hair up.

I pretty much wish my hair could look like this everyday.  So sassy and full of volume.  I love the layers.

The color is darker than what I would ever do, but I love the bangs and the loose curls.  Love the pink dress too :)

Lauren Conrad always has perfect hair.  I love the long layers.  I want my hair to grow, grow grow.

Carrie, Carrie, Carrie.  Please trade me hair.  Or send your stylist to do my hair everyday.  I love the length + the bangs.

Love the sassy bangs and layers.

I love the long and straight look as well.  I want my hair to be this long.  Maybe by next summer.

Anyway, your input would be appreciated.  Bangs or no bangs.  I just can't decide.

Thank you, friends!  And more blogging is on it's way.  I'm way behind...
