Haircut and Dye

I finally got a haircut today. Here is a BEFORE picture where you can see that the back is getting long.

And the AFTER picture where it is all nice and short. I also colored my hair two colors; the bottom darker than the top and sides (if you couldn't tell :)

I do love a good haircut.

Really Quick...

My aunt Bobbi (It's Good to be Queen in the blog world) had this thing where you find out the hidden meaning in your name. She got it at It Could Be Worse with Envoy-ette. Anyway, I tried it and here is the part I think describe me the most:

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

MLK Day: a day off to ride

Today David and I went out on his Honda 650 for a ride. He took me out near Woodruff, a very small town, to see a waterfall. Here is a picture of his bike when we got there.
This a picture of me standing on the top of the waterfall looking down.
Here is David looking around. Another look at the water flowing. Took a picture of my shadow. This is the rock wall we climbed down to get closer to the waterfall. A closer look at the waterfall. I like it. David an I followed the creek to where it was frozen. David on the ice. A look at my feet on the ice.
Here is what looks like weird bird nests in the rocks. Kind of cool. And me getting ready to skate on the ice with my
Anyway, we both had a good time and I am glad we were able to go. I have been wanting to see this waterfall since David and Mike discovered it over a year ago on one of their bike rides. What a fun day off from work.

This year we left for the valley on Thursday because before the race on Saturday we were able to attend a Parts Unlimited showcase Thurs. night. My brother-in-law Mike, David's brother, uses them as a supplier for his shop (Speed Merchants) and we were all invited. The showcase was held at Chase Field; same place where Supercross is held.

This was one of many booths to look at for the Parts Unlimited showcase.

It was a catered event.
Here is a picture of some of the fancy food we ate. The food was one of the best David and I have ever had for a catered event.
They were giving out prizes and David won a pair of Thor boots because he had on Thor apparel and had a business card on him. Sadly, the boots were not his size so we sold them to our friend Dean.
And this was the very yummy and very chocolately (my favorite) dessert.
Now on the day of Supercross. This is outside in the PITS as it is called. In the PITS you can see all the different race teams, what they have this year, enter to win things like a new truck or boat, and buy motocross apparel. Or, like this crowd you can stand in line forever to try and get an autograph from a rider. They were waiting for James Stewart to come out.
Here is David walking around in the PITS.
Ok, this is a picture of Mike and his son Damon. If you click on this picture you will see them better. Mike is in the bright blue jacket with a program or something sticking out of his back pocket and his son (our nephew) is next to him on his left side, shorter and wearing a black hoodie. Thanks to Parts Unlimited they got to go out and walk on the field before the race. Totally cool; David and I are jealous.

Here is the view of the track from our seats.
And a lovely picture of David and I in our seats.
It was a really good race and we had lots of fun. I wasn't able to take pictures of any races because once they start everyone is standing up. A cool part of the event is that they were pulling out either a seat # or a section # for small prizes in between the races and our section 111 won. Everyone in that section got a coupon for a free jumbo jack at Jack In The box. I love going to Supercross; an event I didn't know existed until I met David. We have been going every year since we got married. I am glad I am able to share this sport he loves with him.

This is for you Kortnei...(and other info.)

Ok, so we finally had a good snow day here in Snowflake
This is the view of the backyard out of our kitchen window.
And this is the view of the front yard out of our family room window.
David and I had a good New Year's Eve. We had pizza and ice cream and watched Death Race. At midnight we said Happy New Year's and I texted everyone in my family the same thing. Then we went to bed 10 minutes later. On New Year's Day we did nothing but be lazy all day. I finished my first lesson that I had to do in Relief Society and am happy to say it went well. Now I am back at work and waiting for this coming weekend for Supercross.
