I want long hair

I want long hair. I envy all of the movie stars with that beautiful long waist lenght hair, I know that theirs is just extensions but I still envy it. I always say that I'm going to grow it out long, but then I get impatient because my hair looks like crap. So I cut it short. I did that at the begining of the semester, it was just below my shoulders. This week I got impatient again, now my hair is so short I can't put it into a normal ponytail, it is just above my shoulders. I love the haircut a ton. I was inspired by Jenny McCarthy, the ex playboy model that is dating Jim Carrey, and she has the most perfect hair. The only thing is I still wish that my hair were longer, now it is going to take over a year to get it to the length that I'm hoping for. I'm such an impatient person, I just want results now. Is that possible?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I have my tree, we have our snow, and the cold temperatures (which I am excited to escape from when we go to Texas), and we have a few presents under the tree that we have bought for our family. The only thing missing is the gift for Sean. I have no idea what to buy him, I am having the hardest time trying to figure out what to get because I want it to be special and meaningful and something that he would actually enjoy. It would be so easy to buy him a beanie or a sweater, but that would just be lame. I want to make him happy and I want him to actually enjoy whatever it is that I get him. He is so wonderful. We have had a few Christmas surprises come early, we found out we are getting money back from BYU because we were paying insurance for Sean when we didn't need to, and we were able to get a tree. That is my favorite thing of all. Target was able to get them in stock and I got to buy my tree and decorate it, it made my day, I just felt more Christmasy. I am so happy, this is going to be a wonderful Christmas!

I am so excited for Christmas, infact I was excited for the weekend after Thanksgiving so that I could get a tree and decorate it and decorate my house. I am so sad that the tree that I wanted to get at Target (not a real one) is all sold out. It is also sold out in American Fork, so right now my house is lacking in Christmas decor. I put up the few things that I have that don't go on a tree, but I am really sad. My favorite thing is to decorate the tree and listen to Christmas music and eat cookies. That is a tradition that I wanted to start in my family, unfortunately it was put to a halt this year due to the lack of the tree. Luckily we will be celebrating Christmas in Texas with my parents and brothers and sister and they will have a tree. I just wish that I could have my house all festive for when people come over. I want my house to be a warm inviting and comfortable place that people love to visit. I hope that when we have children that they will want to spend time at the house and invite friends over and that people will love our home and that the spirit will be felt in our home. I kind of feel like Christmas decorations help to bring the spirit of Christmas and provoke thoughts of the birth of Christ making it a wonderful season. It is just so sad that the trees are all sold out, I could order them online, but then it would take over a week to get here and by then we will be leaving for TX so this year we are treeless. I guess we could get a real tree like last year, but it makes the worst mess and technically we are not supposed to have them in Wymount.
