My attempt at blogging...

Lately I have been very thoughtful, and have wanted an outlet for my thoughts and feelings. So since I am not an artist or a poet, blogging seemed to be the obvious answer; and since I have about 12 journals that have only the first 2 pages filled, I figured a journal obviously was not the way to go. So this is my attempt at expression, and while I make no promises about the excitement content, I do promise to attempt to make it non-boring. :) What a promise.

My first non-boring happening was my weekend....

I went to the temple yesterday and loved being there, I really needed it, and learned a lot. I am always amazed at the clarity that I find there. Its strange that I can feel so confused, distracted and impatient, and then the moment I enter the temple, I wonder what all the confusion was about. I LOVE that there is a place on earth to find that peace and clarity. Seriously, I am a fool for not taking advantage of that more often. So I will go again next week, and I am thinking about working in the temple, even if it is just twice a month.

After the temple I went to my bff Emily's house. (I use the term bff any time I can) Lets just say she has 2 of the cutest kids ever. Parker (2yrs), and Garrett (9 days old!) Here are some of the precious pictures.




Emily calls this "My 2 Boys"



I had to put this one on because you can see how freakin hyper Parker was, he pretty much was a blur that night :)



I believe he is trying to re-arrange my face, and laughing his head off.


OH and I got my hair cut on Friday night.....


BEFORE (sorry its the only recent 'before' pic that shows the length of my hair)


And After.....





Its SHORT!! Well short, for me at least...I don't think its been this short since I was a wee child.
