So Most of my life I have had long hair, but about a year ago I decided that I would donate my hair- So since then I have been trying to keep it healthy and long- so the other day it was time to goodbye to my luscious locks... so I went to my friend Brittany a good friend from college and she cut my hair! She took off 13.5 inches!!! I love my new hair cut and I'm happy I could donate it to Locks for Love. I hope you all like my new look!!! P.S. Sorry for the blurry pics- I'm still Ipod camera challenged... and I know I have a terrible "Kissy" face!

Tome & Kalynn

We were able to see our longtime best friends Kalynn and Tome over the long weekend. We also got to meet their son Owen- Who is ADORABLE!!! It has been about a year since we saw them last, which is too long!! It was great to catch up with them!!

Spring time

First off I love spring so much! I love being outside and enjoying the beauty of nature around me. I love this time off year, especially now that most students in Provo have gone home!

This week alone 6 people in our apartment complex have moved out, and I know a few more will be gone soon too. It makes me jealous that they get to leave this place and I don't, but it also helps to know that our time here will soon be over, even if it is a year away- I'm still trying to keep positive!!

Last Spring I had a few herbs and flowers growing outside my door, and I loved it! So this year I decided to have a bit more herbs!

So here from the bottom up we have a Cherry tomato plant, Cilantro, Rosemary, Mint and Basil. I love using fresh herbs in my cooking! I also had to plant some flowers- they make me SO happy!!

I also decided to decorate my door with a wreath that I made- I'm really into bees as I'm sure you could guess.

I have been working on a few little projects here and there, I still seem to be so busy with work, and other responsibilities that I have so I haven't been able to do as much sewing as I would have liked. Some projects I have been able to get my hands on is this picture wall in my living room, it's not quite finished yet, but it's a work in progress.

My parents got me this pretty vinyl decor for my birthday, and I had the perfect place for it- above my bed!

All in all I really love this time of year but I think my favorite thing is that I have been able to spend more time with my wonderful, smart, handsome husband now that he is done for the main school year(even if he is still working full time, as well as being a T.A., and Taking a class this spring term).

So it has been quite a long time since I have last posted. The reason is because all I do is work. I work in Salt Lake and live in Provo so my schedule used to be as follows:

Wake up at 5:40
leave for work at 6:10 ish
get to work at 7:00
leave work at 2:30
get home at3:30
work from home till 5:00
pick up Sean from work
Come home, make dinner
Clean up from dinner

And it starts all over again.

So as you can imagine I was getting really tired of just working. So I talked to my new boss to see if I could work less hours, and luckily he was sympathetic to my pretty pathetic case, so now I am working 4 less hours a week. It may not seem like a lot, but it makes a big difference. I am now able to work out- thank goodness because endorphins = happy Lisa. I am now also working on some baby products that I make so that in a few months I can open up an Etsy shop, and sell some of my stuff! I will be doing something I enjoy, and will (hopefully) be able to make money from it. And maybe if I'm lucky I will get to read a book, not just listen to it, but actually read the words off of the pages... I don't want to get too crazy, but hopefully I can make it happen. So hopefully this will be a new stepping stone to get out of this rut I have been stuck in, and I can get back to loving life!
