This is my hair.  I usually wear it something like this... Which is the exact same hairstyle I've had since Senior Year. Proof

Sometimes, I wear it down...
and sometimes it's in a pony tail
Sometimes it is short

I looked and looked and looked for that picture of me with the cute side pony and flower embellishment that my cousin Karen made, but couldn't find it anywhere. I guess I must have deleted it.

and once or twice a year I'll take the effort (yes, it's plenty) to straighten out those curls
I've highlighted it
and I've taken out the highlights (and not one single person noticed the change)

I do like my hair... but I'm not sure that what I do with it is the full potential, if you know what I mean.   If you had this head of hair, what would you do?  Or, what do you like that I have done? 

Evan Turns 3!

I think Evan was pretty excited to have his Birthday finally roll around.  He knew he wanted a super hero cake.  That's really all he asked for.  The super hero changed almost weekly until we settled on Super Man.  I was able to find him the perfect cake at the-only-store-I'm-allowed-to-shop at so that was really convenient.  We planned a party for the day before his Birthday since it fell on a Sunday and that's a really good day for the family to get together.  We had Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Jessie, Uncle Cole, and Emry over to our house for pizza, cheesy bread, fruit, veggies, cake and ice cream.  We spent the whole weekend scrubbing the house and getting into trouble for any little (or big, or even enormous) messes which were made.  Then on Saturday we ran errands like mad getting the cake, pizza, balloons, and gifts ready for his celebrations.  The boys were so super naughty on Saturday that I was super relieved when Sunday ran so completely smoothly I couldnt' beli…
