how i ended my night waiting for jenn to make me macaroni and cheese. what will i do without my jenn?

out of my mind


so i may or may not have touched up my shellac gel polish with a regular fingernail polish that looks similar. yep that is how trashy i have actually become.
but to be honest...you can't even tell which ones i touched up. so jokes on you shellac!

no, what really makes me trashy this week was when i went to the beauty supply store to buy my eyelashes i picked up a new pair of neck trimmers as well, since my old pair {7 years old} now sound like a boeing 747 jet plane after being dropped an infinite amount of times. well the cheapest pair just happened to be zebra print. yep. and okay fine the beauty supply store was sally's but i really needed another month's supply of lashes! the point is that i text alex to let him know that the next time i cut his hair he won't actually go deaf from having a jet plane right next to his eardrum and his response was that the zebra print was more slutty than trashy. cool. thanks alex.

if you hold on just a moment i will upload pictures from jenn's shower! won't that be delightful!


5 hours 45 minutes

that would be my all time longest phone call ever
what started as a way to not walk home alone trying to avoid the hijackers
turned into almost six hours of laughing hysterically
with an old friend who turns out i've been a crappy friend to as of late
a friend who i think knows me better than most
someone who i can always pick back up right where we left off
a friend who i care for deeply
it was fun
it was sad
it was scary
it was intense
and i loved every minute of it
we are meeting for breakfast in about 2 hours
no sleep for a saturday full of work


please consider this my 'are you freaking kidding me?' face.

there was a car hijacking in my apartment complex on sunday morning! a freaking car hijacking!!! how ridiculous is that? and another one in pg about the same time. the people had a freaking gun held to their face and the one car.jacker dumped the car behind macey's and the other backed out half way through, fired two shots in the air and a car picked him up and they peaced out! it was on the news and everything, and it showed the very streets that i drive on daily. i'm freaked out now to drive anywhere. tonight my mom told me that if someone tries to hijack my car to just let them take the car. i don't know what i would do if i had a gun held to my face and i was forced to leave my car. i'm sure i would burst into tears and beg them not to kill me. i am a little dramatic like that i guess. but still having my car hijacked is never something that i have had to worry about until now. thanks ksl news for making me paranoid! this is why i would rather be uninformed!


my new obsession

LOVE this song. listen to the story people...we have all been there at one point or another!



now i am ready to tell you why i had such a hellish week.

we had a special event at work this week. there is a lady named barbara barrington jones who does seminars for woman. they have classes on various topics ranging from how to take care of yourself mentally, physically and spiritually. she paid for these 153 women to get their hair cut and make up done at our salon, and if any of these women wanted color, they paid for it themselves. well that translated into over 100 colors in two days when we don't even do 100 colors in one week at work! we were all scheduled from 7:30 am until 6:00 pm coloring, cutting and styling hair for these women! the event took up our attention on tuesday and wednesday and we each did about 4 colors and 8 haircuts in one day! so after 2 days i did 8 colors, 6 haircuts and 2 blow dry styles. i was exhausted and my jaw hurt from smiling after the first day. it was a rough experience, but it was a good learning experience. i found out that i am pretty awesome at selling product, that i can actually double book and not want to kill myself and that i'm not really a nice person naturally and should probably work on that!

since the event was on tuesday that meant i had to forgo my usual day off to help these women. and since the event took over 2 days at the salon i was booked solid the next 3 days of the week! i didn't really have much of a break and i was exhausted! i woke up saturday morning almost convinced that it was sunday and almost went back to sleep! but after i finally did get to sleep in today until about 12:15 and was only productive for about 3 of the 12 hours i have been awake! hopefully this week will be better and i won't want to go crazy!


good news!

after two whole years of having these picture frames on my wall i finally put pictures in them! mrs. grewal you may notice the picture in the bottom frame is your christmas card pic from 2009. yes that picture of you and ashton sitting on a dock with sunnies and a wreath has made the cut and will remain there until further notice. to all others who have made the wall congratulations, but don't get too cocky! this is a prestigious wall and you have to earn your spot, so watch yourself!

in other news...tonight me and my sister went to a wedding dinner at the joseph smith memorial building in salt lake city. it was a delicious buffet and i was more than happy with the delicious tiramasu. after realizing that i had accidentally worn the wedding colors looking like a bridal party reject, and discussing whether or not the silverware we were using was in fact brigham young's personal flatware the bride and groom shared a slightly awkward first dance while we ate cake. then they vacated the vicinity to go to sleep. wink wink. anyway, the point of this retelling is this...after the dinner we both had to use the little girls room. thinking there was one down a long hall and my bladder threatening to get tired we asked a gentleman for directions to a restroom. this older gentleman glanced down at his watch and said...'well if you don't take longer than 5 minutes you can go into the second door on the left.' we promised that we wouldn't and ran frantically through the family history library to the potty. as i was in my private stall i got to thinking what this guy thought we would be using the bathroom for, for longer than 5 minutes? maybe he thought we were building a bomb. or that maybe we had stolen the wedding cake and were secretly eating it in the family history library bathroom cause that is the most secluded place there. or my personal favorite, and the only one that made me giggle whilst i peed... maybe he thought we were going to roll a joint and get high! granted it really isn't that funny, but it has been one h.e.l.l of a week and i am really tired. but more on that later.

onward and upward friends!
