It's Been

a long time. I know. I think it's hard for me to blog these days because we're so so so so busy. I'm usually only home a couple nights a week and Cody's not home any nights in the weekday, so we haven't really been doing anything. Luckily, this week is midterms, which means we're half-way done with the semester! Hopefully it'll go by fast.
Oh! I wanted to tell everyone that I"m doing much better now. I went to the dr the day after I posted and he said if I hadn't come in when I did I would've had bronchitis, pneumonia, and I DID have a sinus infection and the flu. All 4 things on top of each other weren't fun at all! But luckily after some antibiotics and LOTS of sleeping, I'm feeling much better.
We didn't do anything for the actual Valentine's Day. I was babysitting and Cody was working, so when he got home he ended up falling asleep on the couch and I fell asleep on the floor! But yesterday we made up for it. We exchanged gifts and he gave me a single red rose (soooooo pretty!), a Dove chocolate rose that I can eat and some little butterfinger hearts. YUM. He knows me too well :) My presents to him weren't as romantic...He got a white shirt for church and a cd. But then we went and both got our hair done..I dyed mine (my parents have been SO worried about it) and he got his cut. I wanted to go totally blonde...but got a little freaked out and did it darker than I thought it would be. The pictures actually still make it look really dark, and I think it kept lightening as the day went on, because it's lighter than this now.
Before:

And After:

I think in this picture it looks just like I have blonde highlights...But it's lighter than that now. I'll have to post another pic later to see what everyone thinks. After we got our hair done (Cody's was done in an hour and mine took 4!!) we went to Outback Steakhouse in Idaho Falls for dinner. It was SO yummy. I had fetticini alfredo with vegetables and shrimp and Cody had steak. I usually don't like steak very much but his was SO SO good. I want to eat my leftovers for breakfast! Afterwards we went to Best Buy for awhile because Cody wanted to buy an xbox360 game with his giftcards from my parents he got for his birthday, but he didn't end up finding on he likes. And then we went to see August Rush! We both loved it! I hope everyone's Valentine's Day was as fun as ours!!

It looks a lot lighter than that now! We ate dinner in IF on Saturday, too! We ate at about 4:00 and I know you were still getting your hair done then! Glad to see you're feeling better.

Wow! It's like our whole ward is getting their hair done! I love your new color - can't wait to see it in person!

Yep, I agree - your hair looks very nice! Thanks for not going totally blonde! And I'm sorry for waking you up last night!! :) Oh, and Fig is back on her blog again - altho she changed it to a different name - so if you're interested in going there, let me know and I'll email you the site name! Fig sent me an email with her new blog. I told her that she had to have a blog because she emailed Ryn everyday all the time - so she missed her and consequently had to blog everyday all the time instead of talking with Ryn! :) Oh, and the cd I got from Janice Kapp Perry - is so good = and one of the songs is called My Ways are not Your Ways - and it so is true - I had forgotten that - He sees eternity and we don't - and so His ways are not the same as ours - that was a comforting thought to me this morning! I had a hard time this weekend - since we're cleaning out her room completely to take up the carpet - and get it out of there - and I got to her dresser and her jewelry box - and I just had to leave the room. The drawings and names on the walls and all - plus her clothes and jewelry - granted she left them home cuz she didn't want them - but still - it was here - I found the receipt she had saved from when we went to Taco Bell in Monticello on April 20 (4-20) and our bill for the food was $4.20. She loved that! And saved the receipt. I actually had thought that was you who was with me - but I guess it was Ryn - and maybe you were there too - but I don't remember - I think Dan was there - but who knows. Anyway, the whole thing was more than I could take! I'm happy you had a fun weekend and didn't have anyone getting in the way of your plans!! It's fun to have some time to enjoy one another's company! We want to see a picture of Cody's hair cut too!! :)

Your hair's gorgeous, and I'm glad you feel better!

April said...

cute hair! Really, even if you shaved your head you would still be so so cute! But you would probably get sick of hats.

Amy said...

Wow! Super Cute Hair! (SCH) I'm going to see Enchanted again tonight - can't wait! And I'm going to Disneyland this weekend! So so so can't wait!!! Love you!

I love your hair! A change is always so good. I am getting mine done on Friday & can't WAIT! Anyway, it sounds like a great holiday. Enjoy it while you don't have to get a babysitter...I guess you still ARE the babysitter. :) I hated when people told us that before Polly came along, but I didn't realize how true it was. :) Anyway, I am SO glad you are better. I was missing your funny blog posts while you were in recovery & so busy busy. Talk to you soon. Love you love you!
