Hair Hair and more HAIR!

Last Tuesday Mother had me help her with Mia Maids Mutual. We decided that we would have a "how to hair" lesson. So, I packed my bag full of pins, elastics, hairspray, beach spray and teasing comb. I showed the 14-15 year old girls how to style there hair into the following styles.
Beachy waves! Love this easy style... I wear it so much and taught the girls how to do it too. They were excited for this tid-bit!

The cute twisty buns in the back. So simple. So cute. They liked this one!
The "Top Knot" or "Fun Bun"! A classy look that just works! A very Lauren Conrad look!
and a personal favorite! Braids over the top of your head... Such a stylish/boho look! Takes 2 seconds!

mi hermano

My little brother, as many of you know, is serving a mission in Boise, Idaho. He is working hard, but having fun. Last week he sent me a letter, and it was the best thing I have received in long time! It is amazing how the Lord uses those around us to help us through our life. The letter was encouraging to me and I think when Elder L was writing it was encouraging to him. I am SO proud of my brother, and I am also so grateful for his example. I can't believe we are on the downhill count! He'll be home in 11 months! :) CRAZY! We are getting excited!

For his one year mark he lit a shirt of his, to watch it burn!
of course, he wanted to make sure he got a picture....
and had 2nd degree burns on his hands... all in the good name of photography!

Elder L's birthday was in May, he made the other Elders play a game of mousetrap!
Made himself a cake! Happy birthday Elder L!

Love that kid!
