family Prayer

You can learn a lot about a family by listening to their family prayers, this is usually where I learn of anyone in my family who is sick or afflicted. Since for some reason I'm usually the last one to find anything out... But who knew I could find out so much about myself. The other day during family prayer, my little sister was praying and as is tradition in my family, she was going through the whole family and asking for blessings for each member, she started with Jessica, that she would choose good friends, and do well in school, then to herself, asking for help with school, and graduation. Next came Aaron, he got all of the usual missionary requests, then she asked for help for Tyrel, to learn his new job, and be safe in DC, and then came the truly informative part. When she came to me, she asked that I would, and I quote, "not chase the boys away". Hmmm didn't know I had that affect on the opposite sex.

what filter?

So I don't know if it's just because I haven't been feeling great lately, or if my whole outlook on life has changed, but I have realized lately that I have no filter. I say exactly what is on my mind regardless of if it is politically correct or socially acceptable. I have ceased caring. Today I said something somewhat inappropriate during Relief Society, and Melissa said to me, that 's exactly what I was thinking. So now I guess I'm that person that says what everyone else is thinking, only that everyone else has the decency to keep those thoughts to themselves. I'm that person?! When did this happen?

here it goes...

I think I might be the last one on the planet to start a blog, but, I guess it's my time. Mostly my life revolves around my family, friends and my job... So a little about those three. My family is hilarious! And a little bit out of control at times. I have two little brothers, who are true partners in crime. As of right now they are separated, because Aaron is serving a mission in Portugal, so Tyrel is always looking for a good wing man, in case anyone is interested! And then I have two beautiful little sisters. And I know, I'm prejudice, but they really are gorgeous. Kami is heading away to college in a few months up to cedar city, and I'm pretty sure Jessica is going to go into withdrawals. Plus she will be the last child left at home, and while she loves attention, I think she might get sick of my parents having so much attention to give! And on to them. My dad is amazing. He is a perfect mixture of Michael Scott with his random outbursts and sweet dance skills, and the cool humor and practical jokes of Jim Halpert. My mom is my inspiration. She gets cooler the older she gets, or maybe I just appreciate her more the older I get.
My friends are the best. I'm not one who has really close friends easily. Growing up I always had a lot of acquaintance/friends, and maybe one really good friend. Right now I find my life filling with some truly amazing women. I have to give a shout out to my roomie Becky, who I absolutely love living with, my cousin Melissa, that keeps my life entertaining, and my oldest, or longest term friend Lindsay Jacobson, without whom I really don't know what I would do! Also to all of the ladies who are part of an amazing "book club" that I will possibly explain someday. And although the Conrad Chronicles has ended, I'm sure we will find a new series to keep us entertained! We might have to start reading actual books!
And last but not least my awesome job! I am a cosmetologist if you want the official title. I work at a fun salon called limelight, and have the best clients on earth! I am a Redken color specialist, but will do anything when it comes to hair. I love weddings with their makeup and updos, and will probably post quite a few of them here. The best part of my job is making people feel good about themselves. I am also a student of interior design, but have decided that design is more of a hobby, while hair is my passion. I seriously love my job. I like everyone else have days where I don't want to work, but I never have days that I don't want to do my job, if that makes any sense at all...
So there you go... me in a nutshell.
