Full Circle

There are a lot of instances in life when I can see I have come "full circle", and today I realized the closing of another one. I started out on a learning journey exactly one year ago yesterday, and will be nearing the end in about a month. It has been a bumpy, scary, exciting, rewarding, self-improving, humbling experience. Who knew hairstylists worked so hard? Who knew we were smart, motivated, caring people? Who knew we would snap each others last nerve right in two? (I kinda did) One journey ending, another beginning- I look forward to the hills and valleys. I am forever thankful for a supporting husband who pushed and pushed, with love. Who listened to my silly rants, who stayed home with me on my "mental health days", and who helped me realize a hidden talent.
"In the end it all comes down to this: you have a choice (or more accurately a rolling tangle of choices) between giving your work your best shot and risking that it will not make you happy, or not giving it you best shot- and thereby guaranteeing that it will not make you happy. It becomes a choice between certainty and uncertainty. And curiously, uncertainty is the comforting choice." -Art & Fear

Papa Anderson's Birthday!

Well, in case you haven't heard, my parents are actually grandparents, because they have a grandkitty named Morgan. So we respectful named them Nana, and Papa. It was my dad's birthday during conference weekend, and since Tim was in Salt Lake all week, I went to Logan! We had a little party at Hamilton's, and got a little crazy, but that's just what happens, when you eat 10lbs. of food, 3 hot chocolates and a strawberry cake with icecream!

More Pictures of Birthday Craziness

This really is how we act when we all get together. I even got the waitress' phone number for Travis! We had fun, and so did my dad, so that's all that matters!

We did it!!

Here are some random pictures of us getting ready for the hair show. I don't have any from the actual show yet because we were behind the scenes whole time, but I will post them as soon as I get them (and explain the show better)! It went really well, and I am very tired, and relieved, and sad, and happy! We thought our "Annie" segment would be the best (of course) but other groups from our school created AMAZING segments too. I was blown away at the talent we have at our little school in Idaho. I will be graduating in the middle of next month, and it will for sure be bitter-sweet.

Taylor Andrew's Hair Show

A couple of us from school went down to Salt Lake to watch the Taylor Andrew's hair show. It was pretty amazing! We are putting on our first annual Austin Kade Academy hair show this tuesday, April 7th. Tickets are only $10, and all proceeds go to the Idaho Falls Haven House. If anyone is interested it is at the Civic Auditorium at 7:00! The pictures from the show are a little crazy because they were taken from my cellphone, but here they are!
