Give me a head with hair. Long beautiful hair.

I started growing my hair out about a year ago. I have only had long hair 3 times in my life- elementary school, after my mission and now. I thought it would be fun to grow it out and then donate it. My sister Jill and neice Sadie decided to do it too. Yesterday was the big day.
This is before. This is after.
Want to see the front? I'll think about it. I am ready to do it all again! We'll see how long it takes to get it long again! I sure do love having a personal stylist in the family. Thanks Andrea!!

My home and native land...

I am so excited to soon be in the land of ketchup chips, toques, chesterfields and my family! Can't wait.

I also have to share my other favourite Canadian commercial with you. I hope you love it as much as I do!!

And I quote....

"I drink shampoo in the shower and I don't get diarrhea."
Yep. That's what one of my students said today in class while he worked on a poster about dairy foods.
Like I said before, everyone needs to teach Middle school. Even just for a year.

Another PERFECT example...

I just received this email yesterday. I HAD to share... I think it is obvious why! (I don't want to die... nor the person who will soon kiss my face off!!)
I believe whatever is in store for us will be for us.
The poem is very true, unfortunately.
Make sure you read the poem!
CASE 1: Kelly Sedey had one wish, for her boyfriend of three years, David Marsden, to propose to her. Then one day when she was out to lunch David proposed! She accepted, but then had to leave because she had a meeting in 20 min. When she got to her office, ! ! she noticed on her computer she had some e-mail's. She checked it, the usual stuff from her friends, but then she saw one that she had never gotten before. It was this poem. She simply deleted it without even reading all of it. BIG MISTAKE! Later that evening, she received a phone call from the police It was about DAVID! He had been in an accident with an 18 wheeler. He didn't survive!

CASE 2: Take Katie Robinson She received this poem and being the believer that she was she sent it to a few of her friends but didn't have enough e-mail addresses to send out the full 5 that you must. Three days later, Katie went to a masquerade ball. Later that night when she left to get to her car, she was killed in that spot by a hit-and-run drunk driver.

CASE 3: Richard S. Willis sent this poem out within 45 minutes of reading it. Not even 4 hours later walking along the street to his new job interview with a really big company, ! when he ran into Cynthia Bell, his secret love for 5 years. Cynthia came up to him and told him of her passionate crush on him that she had had for 2 years. Three days later, he proposed to her and they got married. Cynthia and Richard are still married with three children, happy as ever!

This is the poem:
Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
'Tomorrow' I say! 'I will call on Jim
Just to show that I'm thinking of him.'
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
'Here's a telegram sir,' 'Jim died today.'
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them.
Don't be afraid to express yourself.
Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you.
Because when you decide that it is the right time it might be too late.
Seize the day. Never have regrets.
And most importantly, stay close to your friends and family, for they have helped make you the person that you are today.

You must send this on in 3 hours after reading the letter to 10 other people.
If you do this, you will receive unbelievably good luck.
*NOTE* the more people that you send this to, the better luck you will have.
SMILE, even through your tears!!!!!
Obviously people believe this, since it continues to be forwarded. Sad. But it ends with me. Although I did just "forward" it to you. But not within 3 hours. So if I die, know that I love you all and please NEVER delete this type of email ever again! :) I think someone should make a movie about this email. That would be powerful.

Monday Manners Moment

"Don't forward chain emails or jokes (okay, maybe a few jokes). The same goes for emails that have this in the subject line:
FW: Fwd: RE: Fwd: RE: Fwd fwd RE RE: Fwd re fwd:
or look like this:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Why did
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>the chicken
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>the road?

What if an email says "Forward this to everyone you know"? That email is not the boss of you. Plus it's probably a hoax- something meant to trick you into believing or doing something dumb."

And here is a perfect example. (I deleted about 483 lines of ??, >>> and *)

Pregnancy Test

TRY NOT TO LAUGH ( i didn't believe it, but it works!)
start thinking something you really really want
You have just been visited by SERAH I will grant you one wish. Make your wish when the count down is over.
repost this with the title "pregnancy test" to throw people off and your wish will come true. If you don't, it will become the opposite

Did you know? before you go to sleep at night there is one person thinking of you. They want you they want to kiss you, They want to be with you they are always thinking about you before they go to sleep at night they are longing to be with you. This is all true not a fake if you repost this to in 5 mins the person that is longing to be with you will approach you in a month and ask you out or grab you and kiss the face off you. But if you break this chain no one will like you or ask you again for 5 years!!!

Post this in the next 200 seconds and you
WILL have
THE best day of your life THIS FRIDAY.
You're number one *love* Will either kiss you, ask you out, or grab you and kiss your face off or kill you !!!! so be ready honey

WHAT? Are you serious! Someone thinks about me before they go to sleep and are longing to be with me?? Well where are they? Hopefully by posting this here it will count and someone will approach me before January 17th and kiss my face off. I can't wait.

It is better to be hurt by someone you know accidently than a stranger on purpose.

*When my roommate turns off the bathroom light my bedroom light also goes off. Or if it is off, it goes on.
Should I be concerned?

*The other day I was told "of my 3 wives, you are the best".
Should I be concerned? :)

*Today in my class I made a "milkshake" with oreos, doritos, ice cream, coke, donuts & m&m's. (it had a purpose in my lesson- I promise) There were students in every class that drank it. And some that still wanted to after seeing others gag it down.
Should I be concerned?

*There is a "elfed" thing going around at work where you give 2 people a gift and a letter (explaining what it means to be elfed) and they are supposed to then do the same to 2 more people. I talked to 3 teachers today that have been "elfed" 2 times already.
I haven't been "elfed" at all.
Should I be concerned?

*I ate a whole burrito at Chipotle today. And I liked it.
Should I be concerned?

Don't pick your nose in public. Especially in the produce section.

A long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible says...

This evening I felt the spirit of Christmas thanks to Shaniqua and Shad. Or shall I say Mary and Joseph. It was so fun watching them "perform" at the DC Temple Visitors Center!
If you haven't yet seen The Nativity Story- you need to.
It will help you remember the "reason for the season". So good.
This is my favorite scene.

Today I was at a store. I was returning some items and there was an older lady at the register beside me. Suddenly she lets one rip. farts. fluffs. toots. Whatever you want to call it. What does she say in response? Excuse me. No. Oops. No. That make me feel better. Yes. Then a minute later she says "does it stink?" WHAT? Apparently she is desperately in need of a Monday Manners Moment. I should have given her my blog address.

What was I thinking?

I turned these delicious cheesy biscuits into these monsters. My friend Jenica had a bacon, cheese & chocolate themed Birthday party. So I did my best to combine all three. I added bacon to my cheesy biscuits and drizzled them with chocolate. No one threw up after eating them. So I guess they were a success.
