A lot has been going on lately, and by a lot I mean not really a lot event wise, but a lot of stress...

I have been getting all ready to move. Those of you who know me well, know that I have checklists and piles and time frames... moving is always stressful cause there is SO much to do you dont even realize, change your address, cancel your utilities, get a storage space, ect... you dont even know how much stuff you have until you start to pack, and its a lot of stress deciding what needs to go into storage and what doesnt.

Richard is off to San Diego for a week. Unfortunately his grandfather passed away last week, but luckily Richard gets to go down for the funeral. I know he has been missing his family an awful lot, so Im really grateful that he gets to go, but that leaves me here dealing with everything else.

Melissa and I have been training to start working for my dad which is great, but hard considering I have to work all day then drive to Sumner (about 30 min) and work some more at night. I cannot wait until I can concentrate on one thing so my brain isnt going to explode all the time.

Good news is that I am all set up for beauty school. I was hoping to start in November but I missed the deadline so I wont be starting until January. I was so proud of myself for getting everything from applying to financial aid to transcripts etc. all taken care of in just one week!

Let me just say that I have LOVED having my family here... we miss Christie all the time, but we have been having a lot of fun with Melissa back in town. In the next couple of weeks it will be even better cause I will be living with mom again and I wont have to drive everytime I want to hang out... I have the best family and Im so grateful that we all get a long so well!

The next couple of weeks are going to be so hard with all the changes, please remember to keep us in your prayers... and stay posted for updates! Love you all!


I'll about do it!

Well its no secret that I have been bored with my life the last couple of months... and lets be honest and say that my college degree is pretty much pointless (and still costing me money every month for the rest of my life!)

Anyway, I decided to bite the bullet... my mom has been begging me since I was in high school to go to beauty school, but I figured I could never make very much money from it. But since I dont make very much money anyway, WHY NOT!

So I applied today for beauty school!! Im super excited. I am not planning on actually making a career out of it, but my mom and I want to build a salon in her basement and have clients come get their hair done and my mom can do their facials!
Luckily my dad is needing some help with his business ventures so I can work for him while Im going to school, its like 1200 hours... yikes! Then when I have kids it will be easy for me to work from my moms house. Its a brillant idea!
What do you think about that?


Family Time

This weekend we made our way down to the Oregon coast for the Smith Family Reunion... we were pretty discouraged at first because it was overcast and drizzly, but by the second day the sun came out and we were able to enjoy the beach!

Chris and Scottee dug a really big hole... almost 6 feet deep!

Enjoying the couple minutes of sun

Baby Lucy didnt really enjoy the sunglasses I got her, but she sure looked cute!

I love my cousins!!!

Workin in the kitchen.... We had a great time with the family!
