Ok so RIGHT after I posted the last blog Avante called me for an interview today at 2. I am freaking out. Ok cross your fingers!

A New Me

So this past Monday I took my written part of state board and I PASSED! I was so excited and proud of myself for the extra hours I had put into to studying. I take the practical part of my exam on Monday and if all goes well I will be a licensed cosmetologist!

So at the start of a new year most make goals, but I missed that by about eight months. So I decide that I would start now, better late than never right?

1) Attend the temple more often
There is no excuse for not going at least every month or every week for that matter.
2) Learn to cook….better
I want to be able to cook for my family or future family and have confidence in what I am doing.
3) Get a job
At this point I won’t be picky. I originally wanted to work at Avante Salon with one of my best friends Amber, but just a job would do now!
4) get healthy
I want to do this not only for the fact its good for you but it is good practice for when I get pregnant. (Hopefully this year)
5) Get a tan
Since the new study came out about tanning beds and skin cancer I think I will just stick to self tanners!
6) Be more crafty
I want to have that home around the holiday season that just feels all warm and cozy and is decorated to the tee.

So these are my goals so far. What are some goals you have? Maybe we have similar goals and we could work on them TOGETHER!

Ok so this week of sitting around in a big t-shirt and gym shorts has led me to the following topic.....FASHION. I look around and see all these cute girls in darling outfits and think "I want to look like that". So I venture out and then I realize I am a cheap skate and cant see how you pay $30 for a shirt. So I go home empty handed. This is always depressing because I dream of all the cute stuff I will come home with and then go into my closet and see the same old stuff. So I am asking the question what and where are cute INEXPENSIVE places to shop. I dont know why after 22years and growing up with 4 sisters I dont know any of this but I dont. My sister Myla always is dressed cute and has cute stuff but then I realized its because she sells cute bags and jewelry so she has to be "in style".(ps her blog is Then there is my sister Marissa, i give her my old stuff and I see her wear it and think " Why did it not look like that on me"? So I am asking all of you my fellow bloggers where you shop and get your cute stuff? I am looking for the following items. Cowgirl boots, cute shirts, layering items, and jeans. Thanks for all your help, I will let you all know how my quest ends.

So last Friday I did it I finished beauty school! I was so excited and just could not wait for the freedom. Well now a week later I am bored. I will be waiting about four to six weeks to take my state boards and then its off on a job hunt. I am not the kind of girl who can sit around the house cleaning and cooking, I have to be out and working. I know this will all change after we have kids but now I just want a job and something to do. In these upcoming weeks I will be brushing up on my cooking skills. Last week I made bread (in a bread machine) and instant cheesecake. Its a start at least. So if you have any simple ideas for recipes send them my way, and if you have any ideas of salons I should apply at send here too. I am open for any ideas of suggestions. So the next couple of weeks I am free for shopping, cooking or craft dates so let me know.
