Short Dreams.

Sometimes, I daydream about having a bald head again.
This was me back in November 2010, just one week apart. Shaving my head was probably the most craziest things I've ever done before. But you know what, I LOVED it! I felt so unbelievably beautiful. I loved having to wear mascara, blush and jewelry a little bit more. I felt more feminine because I couldn't hide behind my hair.
I LOVED not having to do anything to my hair, other than just rubbing my head with a towel after showering. Oh the wonderful ease of it! Plus, I didn't have to worry about hair clogging the shower. How nice is that? 
Maybe someday, soon enough,  I'll have short hair again.
 Or even have it shaved again....

Officially Mrs. B!

Yesterday, I finally changed my last name over to my married name. I was anticipating a long, dreadful process. Plus, sometimes, I have a hard time with change.  These two factors added up to taking 8.5 months to make this change. 
I started off with the local Social Security office, which was fast & easy. In and out in less than 10 minutes! Then I tried the DMV, FOUR TIMES!!! Oh man...never again am I going to the DMV without an appointment!!  After the SS offfice, I drove by and saw a long line out the door.  I decided to go by Target to get some allergy medicine and kill some time.  When I went back after Target, the line was ever longer.  I decided to go by Michael's & Joann's to check out their sales on scrapbooking items.  After that, I went back by the DMV and the line was gone! I walked in, got my number (G166) and sat for 30 minutes (they were barely on G120). I finally turned to the lady next to me and she said that she had been waiting for 2.5 hours! TWO AND A HALF HOURS!!! HECK NO!! I decided I'd go grab lunch and run home for a quick bit.  When I made it back to the DMV, they were on G169!! Oh man, I was so mad, frustrated and bummed!!! I knew I should have gone to the DMV the next day (today) as I had originally planned!  
Luckily, Levi said that it was a momentous occasion and we needed to celebrate.  His happiness made me happy that I finally made this change! Off we went to The Cheesecake Factory! It was our first time there and we were lucky to have gift cards to use! Even better!! :) It was a fun dinner!  It's always so nice to try something new w/ him! We love our adventures, big & small!

This morning, I was able to finish up the name change process. I got up early to get over to the DMV.  It only took an hour and a half.  Then headed over to finish off the rest of the name change stuff.  It's kinda trippy.  I'm not gonna lie, after I walked out of the SS office yesterday and saw it on paper, it hit me pretty hard.  I was excited, happy, sad, nervous, ecstatic, etc.  I was feeling all kinds of emotions.  Sharing the same last name as my husband, makes me feel more united with him.  Part of me feels like I'm leaving my family and an old life.  It's a lil tough to not share the same last name as my parents now, but that's what comes with growing up & moving forward in life.  I'll tell you one thing, man, I need to practice my new signature.  Now I'm officially a Mrs.! I mean, I have been since August, but now I'm really Mrs. B!  I have a wallet full of cards that can prove it too! Trippy!! But exciting, oh so exciting!!

Tried & Failed....Miserably.

Please ask me where I've gone 4x today!?!?

The DMV.

Then you can ask me what didn't work out.

See above answer.


Tomorrow, I get to try it all over again....

March Madness.

Man, this month has been crazy/busy/tiring.
I'm not gonna lie, I'm looking forward to the newness of April. There were high points of this month and definitely some low points. 
I'll go into that later.
As for now, I'm grateful for the blessings I enjoy. I'm lucky I get to live in this gorgeous corner of the world...
...with this handsome fellow...
I'm so grateful, so truly grateful, to have him by my side, this month and always.
Walking Dead's over... Time for bed. Monday comes too soon!

Tonight, I find comfort in an old favorite hymn. 

.   Where can I turn for peace?
    1. Where is my solace
      When other sources cease to make me whole?
      When with a wounded heart, anger, or malice,I draw myself apart,
      Searching my soul?

      Where, when my aching grows,
      Where, when I languish,
      Where, in my need to know, where can I run?
      Where is the quiet hand to calm my anguish?
      Who, who can understand?
      He, only One.
    2. He answers privately,
      Reaches my reaching
      In my Gethsemane, Savior and Friend.
      Gentle the peace he finds for my beseeching.
      Constant he is and kind,
      Love without end.

Babies, past & future.

While cleaning out my closet, at my parents' place, I found some old baby photos of myself. 
I love looking at this photo (of me & my aunt). I was so tiny. I was about a month old. I wonder what kind of hope and dreams my parents had for me. 
Here's another photo that I found, taken about a week or two later. I love looking at these photos because it makes me wonder what my babies will look like. Especially, when my sweetheart was this cute...
I'm excited for the time we start a family. 
Although that time isn't now, I'm grateful because I feel like there's so much I need to do and prepare myself for. There's a few books I want to read before then. But  for now, I will enjoy these baby photos and daydream of my future babies. ��
