Self Haircut

Yes it's true, I who has no experience what-so-ever cutting hair just cut my own hair with bangs included. This might sound a bit crazy to some, especially the ones who spend a fortune getting their hair cut to make sure it's a good one(mom). My reasoning is thus: I live in a town that doesn't give me many options for hair salons. There is a Walmart and a couple other salons where you are the only white person and everyone stares. I guess what it really comes down to is the fact that the only person I trust with my hair lives in Utah. It's funny that I say that because I'm probably the last person I would ever trust with my hair but I figure I'd rather get a bad haircut for free than have to pay for it. I guess I could just wait till I go to Utah to visit family but I feel like I have so many things to do while I'm in town because I can't do them here, so I don't spend as much time with family as I really want to. The more I think about it, the more I realize that my hair is not that important. I'd rather spend time with my family and go to Costco. Now I just have to wait till I go to Utah so my sister can highlight it. (ps. Becca you are highlighting my hair by the way) So with all that being said I present to you my first self haircut.( the rest of my hair is just a normal long layered style but you can't tell because I didn't straighten my hair today so it's just frizz. Thus the pony-tail.)

Trying To Stay Sane

Since there is not a whole lot to do around these parts, I try to keep myself busy by crafting. Pretty much my whole house is going to be homemade.

 Jacob thinks that people are going to come to our house and think that I am cruel and cynical because of these next three signs. I just think they're funny.

 In this picture I made the widow toppers, the plates on the wall, the table runner and the GOWANS sign. I don't care if I'm good at this stuff or not. It's fun and it keeps me sane.

Lily Has Bangs

A lot of kids have issues with cutting their own hair. Thankfully my kids have never taken interest in doing so, however, my 5 year old has a strange habit of ripping her hair out. After long car trips her car seat is usually covered in hair due to boredom I guess. The other day she managed to rip a huge chunk out of her bangs. It looked rather silly so I figured it was time to just cut bangs. Although she looks adorable it makes me sad because I think she looks more grown up. I know they are going to driver her crazy. She can't stand hair in her eyes. Hopefully she will learn her lesson. And yes, she has a chocolate milk mustache.
