cleaning supplies???

In the midst of cleaning my house out for the move, I've found out that I have an INCREDIBLE amount of cleaning supplies! All of this was hidden below 3 sinks...the kitchen, and two bathrooms (one of which is only a half bath!)

So by the looks of it, I should have the cleanest house in all of Logan...hopefully by the end of tommorrow it will be once we're officially all moved out. :( so bittersweet.

Today I took my state board exam for cosmetology/barbering and....

I passed!

I'm so excited, I've been SO stressed over this day coming, and I can't believe I actually passed it, everything that could have gone wrong...went wrong! The nail tip on my mannequin finger popped off right at the beginning of the sculptured nail portion, I forgot to drape and protect the hair on my mannequin during the basic facial portion...until after I'd already applied the cleansing cream, and I didn't know we were not supposed to use trimmers to go around the edges of the hairline on the men's haircut...and I did! Oh my heck! I was dying, and I thought in my mind that at least I was getting really good practice for the next time I'd have to take it, and when we left the building and got to read the results I was honestly the most shocked I've ever been! I couldn't be any happier right now! There were 4 of us girls who took it today from my school, and all 4 of us passed!

And to top it off, when I came home, Ryan had gotten me flowers and a cute card to congratulate me, and left it on the counter for me! Such a great day!

inspiring...yes. humbling...absolutely.

I grew up with Natalie and have known her ever since 3rd grade. We were in the same primary, and Young Women's groups all growing up, spent many a sleep overs together and play dates, countless experiences at Girls Camp...she is such an amazing girl, and such an inspiration! If you can make to her Brooke White concert benefit, that would be awesome...or even just buy tickets even if you can't make is so that she has more funds to go towards her last wish. She is amazing, and she deserves it after such a long battle.

I love you Natalie! (her blog here)
