Here I am.

Hello Readers.

I started school today. SLCC. Esthetics program. There are a lot of different types of people in there. I'm excited to get to know all sorts of new people. I really enjoy people and making friends with random people. I also like making people feel good about themselves.

My step-sister, Jennie, dyed my hair a shade darker of brown. It's a good change, not too different that i don't feel like myself, but different enough to be excited about a change. The dye really brought out my red undertones. I'm trying to get used to that part.

I'm done the full time (7am-6pm daily) nannying for the summer and now I'm just there from 7-8:30 each morning. I drive my little 3rd grader buddy to school each morning, after I wake him up and get him ready and fed before school. I can't do the after school time with him now because my classes are everyday from 12-5.

I decided to look for another job for the evenings. Chase will be in night classes and I feel like I need to utilize my new green card status, by getting a "real" job. I may as well get a retail job, because after I have kids, I don't plan on working.

My hope is that once I finish my esthetics program, I can work from home. It would be great when I have kids- to work from home. One day I think it would be really fun to open a little salon/boutique. It's just a dream for now though.

First of all, Chase and I want to continue saving for a house. Perhaps we will buy one next year. Wouldn't that be fun!

Summer is officially over in my books. I've had a great summer full of fishing, swimming, playing, all my family, chicago, canada, st george, relaxing and many great memories.

I'm excited for fall, because I've purchased some fun new winter clothes.
Xoxo, Brittany

where did brittany go?

Hi. I saw Julie & Julia tonight with my family. It was really good. I love when a movie comes out that it unique, not been done before. In it, Julie blogs. It reminded me that I should get back on the computer, so here I am blogging again! (By the way, I got a "new" laptop. It's my brother Andrew's old Macbook. He just got a new one to start med school with- so I bought his old one for quite a deal.)

The movie was about learning to cook. I would like to start to cook more. I'm not big into cooking- I am going to become better. I got a lot of cookbooks for my wedding, so I have plenty of recipes to choose from. I'm sure Chase would appreciate it too.

Last weekend, I picked some of my cousins up from EFY in Provo. We went for breakfast and then we went to Taylormaids. It's a salon/costume shop that another of my cousins works at. We tried on all sorts of wigs. It was really fun. I think I'm going to dye my hair dark brown now. I'm scheduled to do it next week. Eeek. I've never had my hair professionally dyed before. I've done it a handful of times just from the box though. Wish me luck.

This weekend was productive. Chase and I cleaned out our "storage room"- It's really just our laundry room that is pretty big. It was jammed full of a lot of random things. We sold some stuff in a garage sale today and took the rest to DI. I am putting all the similar things in big Tupperware with labels. It's nice to have some order back there. (Though a lot of it isn't quite put away yet.)
It was my one major goal this summer(besides getting a tan)- so I am happy.
I'm not happy that summer is coming to an end though. I get to lay out everyday next week though, while the boy I nanny is in swim lessons. It's heaven.

Xoxo, Brittany
