I Feel Pretty

Remember when we were kids and we did whatever we could, in a picture, to look as ridiculous as we possibly could? The dumber we looked, the better, right?

I wonder when the switch occurs where we transform from that little kid, to people who take and then delete the same picture over and over again...trying desperately to look perfect. Oh...maybe that's just me...=(

It seems like the former way of thinking makes for a less stressful photo shoot...I need to return to my roots, I think.

Just a thought...

Memorial Day

Ahhhh...Memorial Day. It's the magical weekend that kicks off camping season, and honestly...the best time of the whole year. If I could camp all the time, I would. As long as I got to come home for a shower from time to time...=)

Sometimes I miss living in the big city...sometimes I feel the need to explore and get away from home...again. But every summer...scenes like this one remind me why I love Wyoming...and why it really is the best place on earth.

The Grass Is Always Greener

I go through torment every morning trying to straighten my hair. I've paid a pretty penny for straightening creams, gels, sprays and serums. I probably spend about 45 minutes getting ready Most of the time my hair is just "okay." Sometimes I'm super happy with it, and sometimes I want to rip it out...but's just...blah. And nobody ever compliments it, except for once in a blue moon.

Recently, I woke up late, and didn't have time to straighten my hair. Instead, I let it do its own thing, and went to work with curly hair. It took me about 10 minutes, total. Most people at the office thought I'd gotten a perm, (a perm????) and some knew it was my natural look. Regardless of where they thought the curls came from, the overwhelming consensus was that I looked great...they were jealous. People didn't stop talking about it all day long.

So...of course I've worn my hair straight every day since.

The bottom line is that nobody wants what they already matter how great it is. It's a horrible human trait...but it's undeniable.

Mostly...we're all just idiots.
