I have enjoyed my new haircut so much this week. People don't even recognize me. HEE HEE. It has given me a new sense of confidence and self worth. I forgot what a new look can do for a girl. I have had so many compliments on the new cut. I am so glad that I did it.
Oh yes. I have had to take quite a few the last week or so. I have been just pooped! I have been getting up almost an hour earlier than normal because it seems like a fight in the morning to get the bathroom. Since I have to share the bathroom with 2 boys now (and the latest edition takes just as long as I do in the powder room in the morning)... I have to forgo an hour of (much needed might I add) beauty sleep to get my turn to take a shower. So anyway... I have been snoozing on my lunch breaks and in between the day and night jobs. I love naps!
When I was young, I always wanted braces. I thought it was something that made you a "cool" teenager. Oh brother. Now that I have them... I want to rip them off everyday of my life. But, I am so happy with the results I have had so far. I never imagined that my teeth would ever be as straight as they are right now... and I am only half way through the process. Sure, I had to have a root canal because of them and I had to have some oral surgery in the beginning! But it will all be worth it in the end. Harrison looks at my teeth a few times a week and he is always like "Dang!" He can't believe how straight they are either. It makes me feel good when he gets excited about them.
I see our next door neighboor once or twice a day. His name is Gordon and he owns the Pawn Shop next door. He is such a nice man. He always says hello to me when I walk by and he is outside working on his (beautiful might I add) lawn and garden. Yesterday he told me that he really liked my new haircut. We chatted for a few minutes outside the shop on my way home from work. He is just a nice guy. We need more nice guys in the world, don't you think?

One of the coolest parts of the whole place was their selection of vintage t-shirts. I was told by the cute girl there that the Montana shirts (there are a plethora of designs) are "dead stock". They were purchased from a guy who had a souvenir shop in Montana and it went out of business in the 80's. He kept all of his inventory and the boutique bought the stock. So, the shirts are brand new with the original tags and such. They are awesome.
So yeah, that is my fun find for the week. I can't wait to take Harrison! I think he will LOVE it!

2 News Morning Team
Yes, I am thankful for the morning news. This news team is my FAVORITE! I love them. They are so funny! I watch 2 News This Morning every morning while I get ready for work. I am obsessed with it! I feel like I am only half ready for the day if I leave the house and I have not watched it! I feel like I stay very informed with current events while watching this station. There are other stations here in Utah that are SO one sided (eh hem... KSL...) and I can't stand that. I feel like my CBS news channel stays non bias! I love it!
Oh yes! This stuff is amazing! I borrowed a table cloth for the bridal shower last week from a dear friend of mine. It is one of her favorite table cloths... EVER! Well, when the shower was over and I got all the goods home, I realized that the table cloth (that came from Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic collection... LOVE IT) had a big purple stain on it! WHAT THE CRAP? It looked as if a big raspberry had leaked it's juices all over the cloth. I Spray-N-Wash'd it and tried to hand wash it. IT DIDN'T COME OUT! I started having a "secret cow" (when you totally freak out on the inside but haven't quite let everybody else know on the outside). Well, I got out the ol' bucket of Oxy Clean and dissolved about 2 scoopfuls into a bucket of water and let the table cloth soak in there for about 2 days. GOOD AS NEW! The stain is completely gone with no trace to be seen! YaHoo!
Drive Thru Gas Station
I pretty much visit the neighborhood CREST station at least once or twice a week for my fix of Cherry Coke. Yum! The best part of it is... they have a DRIVE THRU window. Genius I tell you! I just pull up... let them know what I want (anything in the store by the way... Doritos, Hostess cupcakes, whatever tickles my fancy that day)... and then when I pull to the window... WHALAH! My order is ready without me even unbuckling my seat belt. It is great! Thank Heavens for that!

Melinda is supposed to send me the rest of the photos from this fun event, including pictures of the amazing cupcakes I made. I can't believe I didn't have my camera to take pictures of my beautiful spread. Shame on you Jordan for keeping my coveted camera locked away in the trunk!

Yes, I am so thankful for her. I love talking to her. We talk on the phone almost every single day. I had a high school English teacher tell me that I would not appreciate good teachers or my parents for about 5 years after I graduated school. Well, she was right. It didnt take me THAT long to learn to appreciate my parents (especially my mom) but somewhere close to there. My mother is amazing. She has the answers to just about everything involving cooking, cleaning, baking, sewing, crafting, gardning, things having to do with church, and anything else I could ever ask about. I am truly blessed to have my MOMMY!!! I love you Mom!
I know that sounds silly, but I am. I have been crafting the last little while and I find myself looking for anything to throw glitter on. It makes me so happy! I heard a comedy bit just a little while ago and the guy said that glitter is the herpes of all craft supplies. Once you get it on you be prepared to have it there... FOREVER. It does not come off. It is so true! But, I love it anyway!
Marie came by work the other day with her little girl Cora. She is so freaking cute! She is about 16 months old and so darling. She likes to sit on my lap at my desk and draw on things and click the keyboard. She also likes to eat whatever I am eating at the time. She is such a precocious little thing! She makes me laugh every time I see her.
I was looking back on my last Thankful Thursday posts and realized that I have not once said that I am thankful for my husband. Well, I am! Honestly! Harrison is great. I am SO glad we are married. We have been able to do so many fun things in our 3 years of marriage. Sure, we have our rough spots, but what marriage doesn't? I am thankful for his sense of humor and his patience. He is so patient with me. Heaven knows I can drive anybody batty with my LONG stories and shoe addiction. He is always there to support me. I love you too Harrison!
Well, that concludes this edition of Thankful Thursday. Tune in next week for another exciting post.
