Practice hair!

Hey ya'll! So, Kim, Jonathan, Andrew, and I are going(along with friends) to a Regency Ball in December! It is a Pride and Prejudice style ball and a friend of ours is making dresses for Kim and me!! Anyway, I want to have my hair in an updo that Elizabeth Bennet, from the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie, had hers in for one of the balls. So, after I took a shower yesterday, Kim put my hair up in pin curls. My hair was already starting to dry by the time she started with the curls, but with hairspray and the partial wetness, it turned out really nice!! I slept in the pin curls and they were in my hair for about 17 hours. This was a practice run for the ball; my hair is naturally straight but it needs to be curly in order to do the Elizabeth updo. Here are some pictures! Let me know what you think! :) 
Elizabeth's updo on Pride and Prejudice. My hair won't look exactly like that, but it will be up kinda like that.

Well, let me know what you think! :) Have a lovely day!

I'M BACK!!!!!!

  Well, to start, me and two of my brothers(Isaiah and Noah) had birthdays last month! I turned 18, Isaiah turned 3, and Noah turned 6. On my actual birthday I went to work but that night mom made the dinner of my choice which was: chicken enchiladas, refried beans, and chips with salsa and sour cream. Yum! Mexican! After dinner Noah, Isaiah, and I opened up presents from the family. Around a week after my birthday, we had some grandparents and my older brother, his wife, and baby over for a birthday party for the three birthday kids! We had made these chocolate cake pops for the party. They look like lollipops, only it's cake, not candy(see pics below). We ended up singing "Happy Birthday" four times; once for me, once for Noah, once for Isaiah, and once for my grandma(who's birthday is in October as well)! The party was fun! We opened gifts, talked, laughed, and got several group pictures. The next birthday in our family is Andrew's and it is on Thanksgiving! It isn't on Thanksgiving too often. Well, on to the pictures!
