"I'm going there someday"

Okay, so maybe I went there Wednesday! Maybe I can't wear my favorite tattered pair of jeans, with holes all up my legs anymore. But maybe I don't care because that small sacrifice is worth it!

I will return again shortly....not maybe, for sure!

Thank you to all that came and showed support, it made my experience so special!

tricks aren't just for kids

for the past three summers i have been playing on a co-ed softball team called Public Enemy. i play either catcher, left center or right field. i have become pretty good friends with the right center, Todd. we have always raced out to our positions to see who is quickest. often times we hide gloves so that we can get that much ahead--i know, we are competitive. last season we decided that the loser needs to do a trick once they reach their position. we have each performed our fair share of tricks. let me tell you though, i am not a tricky person, so i am running out of ideas and need your help. i have quoted Nacho Libre, enlightened him with my talented and not at all off-key rendition of Incarnation (song Nacho sings to the nun, but i can't remember how to spell her name), done countless cartwheels, handstands, and other random gymnastics tricks that i learned in the third grade. i am now boring myself, and realizing that i don't have too many talents or tricks to perform on the spot. i reached an all-time low this evening and had to settle on touching my tongue to my nose.

if any of you have any ideas, please feel free to share! i would love to mix things up next time. or maybe i should just beat him out to the field each time. hmmm.....

above is a picture of me, Todd, and the first-baseman Gentry.

I finally did it! I have been wanting to cut my hair for so long, but always wuss out. Here's why I love short hair:

1. It's sassy
2. I actually look like a hairdresser
3. It's much more fun to style than long hair
4. I get to use lots of fun new products (spray wax, di:fi, pomeades, etc....)
5. Short hair holds the style that you left the house with originally
6. My hair is tons healthier
7. I have to do my hair and can't just throw it up in a ponytail
8. and, it's wallet friendly, I don't use nearly as much shampoo and conditioner
