We're back!

After driving about 1,642 miles in 3 days, we are home.

The drive was really long and tiring, but driving together was a blast. We saw a lot of interesting things, Mike said some pretty ridiculous, quite quotable, mighty memorable stuff, we took loads of fun pictures, learned that avocado breakfast burritos are delicious, found out that Kingman Arizona is a pretty popular place, learned that it is not a good idea to run out of gas in the middle of no where, and that the only hotel with an available room, is the one with the "under water" theme. Yup, it was a pretty wonderful trip. Definitely one to put down on the records as, "that fun road trip in 2011."

of course when Mike saw this He read it as Pikachu. So obviously I had to start singing the little bit I know of the theme song!

We also had a mad bed jumping party. Yes, you did miss out.

And I spotted a lion too. Who knew!

Harry Potter

I was a wand. Phoenix Feather and all.

I am no Harry Potter buff. In fact, When I was little I made it through half of the first book and quit. Though I didn't read the books, or know all of the spells, I still loved the first movie when it came out. I wanted to attend Hogwarts, and be friends with Hagrid. And I thought that Harry, Ron, and Hermione, were the coolest kids ever.
I was SO jealous of the actors and wanted to be in the movie too.

I won the Hermione look alike contest my town held, and my prize was a box of doughnuts.
...small town, remember?
I filled the box with maple bars. Yes, they were all maple bars.

Every year for half of my life I have looked forward to a new Harry Potter movie.
It's weird knowing that there won't be any MORE coming out.
This is it guys. THIS IS THE END. *insert sad face here.

I'm itching to chop again!

Lately I have had the urge to chop my hair again. I cannot remember the last time I kept my senses about me and didn't just go at it with the scissors....
I think the fact that I haven't cut it yet is pretty impressive, and really crazy.

If ya'll didn't know, I suffer from Severe Anxiety Disorder. S.A.D. yes, that is what it is called, and yes, it is a perfect name for it, haha. I have a hard time with anything and everything. From answering the phone, to responding to an email. But I deal. just like everyone else in life. As hard as it is, we deal. Anyway, today has been one of those days. If you are not familiar with anxiety, (and not the normal, everyone has it anxiety) then you may not get this post.

My anxiety changes. You cannot pin point my anxiety or what triggers it. Today, I did not have a nervous tummy, I did not have a "something terrible is going to happen" feeling. Today, I had a something is off and I'm just not as smiley as I know I should be, day. I reminded myself over and over that I am happy with my life right now, but unfortunately with the anxiety I have, reassuring yourself of something doesn't help. My thoughts tumble around in my head to the point that I am confused about every decision I have ever made in life!! And it is especially hard when you are a happily married newly wed! IT CAN'T BE GOOD FOR THE RELATIONSHIP!!!

Obviously if you know you are happy but your body won't let you feel the way you want to, you are going to have a pretty off and crappy kind of day. My thoughts run their course through my head all day, and I have to figure out what thoughts are real and what thoughts are just my crazy anxiety thoughts... To anyone who is reading this, you would think I am crazy. I am not. I promise. It's just my unfortunate routine. And maybe having that my routine makes me crazy... It's ok. I deal.

I have to figure things out in life. And going through life with Anxiety is hard. It was always hard, but being married with it is even harder. I'm lucky to have a good husband.

Aside from needing to get a small portion of my thoughts out in the universe, I was going somewhere with this! My hair!! Maybe me always cutting my hair has to do with my anxiety. I constantly need change. Constantly need something happy and smiley and short fun crazy hair is always a good way to make you smile. Or maybe I just like to cut my hair and am looking for a good excuse as to why I enjoy it so much :)

So it has come to this. I am going to keep growing my hair out, buuuut, since I am going back to my natural color, I need SOMETHING to make it not so, BLEH. I'm thinking something not so drastic but simple might just take care of that itch I've been having for a while. Maybe some Bangs on this head of hair will do the trick. What do ya think?
