Bobby-pin thing

I love that I have my own personal video editor...I believe he took some artistic license in this video. Thank you Matt, you're the best!

Thread those brows!

I had a new experience today! I went with my friend to a place that does threading, an ancient hair removal process from the middle east. It is pretty interesting how they do it. The clinician takes a piece of cotton thread and twists it around a row of "unwanted" hair and pulls it out. It is kind of a cross between waxing and plucking, no wax, but it removes hair faster than plucking one strand at a time. I had my eyebrows done for about $5.00 and it took about 2 minutes per eyebrow. I am not a maintenance person, but I think I could do this. I don't think it hurt any more than waxing or plucking, but it did feel a little different...hard to explain this unique feeling. I would definitely recommend it. I put a picture here so you can visualize what it really is.

So now, I would like some feed back from anyone who has tried this. I am curious as to your opinions.

Christmas flashback

I asked my mom to send me a picture of me when I was a kid at Christmas and this is the one she came up with (her scanner is broken...I know there are some good pouting pictures out there). So this is me and my younger brother Andrew. Just for reference-sake, here is a picture of us today (I couldn't find one of just the two of us). You all know what I look like, and Andrew is the one sitting down next to the birthday cake. My how times have changed!

The Birds finally

Well, I have finally sat down to watch "The Birds" for the first time ever! I know, I know...what is wrong with me? Its not like I wasn't aware of Alfred Hitchcock, I just never really watched any of his shows. But I kind of felt like I was missing out. So, thanks to Netflix I finally got to see this classic movie.
I was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and felt a little creeped out at parts. I can now check this one off my list of "must sees" and move on to "Psycho."
(Yep, I haven't seen that one either)
