dryer sheets are a marketing scheme.

you don't need them.  I repeat you don't need them.  

so anyway, I took Hailey in for a haircut yesterday.  I didn't have a chance to take her to someone WORTHY because school pictures are tomorrow (I procrastinated... again...)

so I took her to Sam's Salon or whatever the heck it's called (the Wal-Mart haircutting placey-thingy).... wait:  did you just gasp?  I thought I WAS the GASPER! 

I gave the cutter (stylist?  yeah right) what I thought were clear instructions.

A-line cut

as short as you can go in the back (to her hairline)

front obviously longer than the back (South Dak. hair-cutters had a hard-time with the "A-line" concept so I always stress this)  Front longer than the back!  Back shorter than the front!  NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!!!  PLEASE!!!  PRETTY PLEASE???

slightly stacked in the back

absolutely NO layers in the front

Are YOU clear on this?  YOU could cut her hair with these excellent, precise instructions, couldn't you?


She got the front longer than the back part.  Oh yes she did.

But the STACK in the BACK.  OH GOSH:  HELLO ALICE FROM THE BRADY BUNCH!!!  It looks terrible.  The shortest "stack" is ONE INCH LONG.  I AM NOT EXAGGERATING.  ONE INCH.

I know it's just hair.  I know it will grow back.  But do you know what else I know:  goodbye Sam's salon... forever.  It just wasn't meant to be.

now go get rid of your dryer sheets.  I dare you.

1. I hate scrapbooking.  wait.  no.  I mean I HATE scrapbooking.

2.  I love white T-shirts.  I want to get rid of everything in my closet but my white T-shirts.  SHOULD I?

3.  I no longer love vinyl lettering.  Or any decorations that have words in them.  Thanks Ash-tab for this realization.

4.  I don't know what kind of decorations I love.  Except mirrors and clocks.  I love mirrors and clocks.  And topiarys.

5.  I really love living in *undisclosed* Utah Valley location.

6.  Paige is the best thing that could have happened to our family.

7.  I don't want to ever move again.  Ever.  Would it be THAT BAD to rent forever?

8.  All my Halloween/Fall decor reminds me of how sick I was last year at this time.  Who wants to trade decorations with me?

9.  I love Twilight.  And I am thinking of doing a little PHOTOgraphy side business.

10.  Number 9 was a joke.
