I made a little change.

Until a better picture comes along... here is slightly reddish/coppery/strawberry blonde-ish/warm-haired me. I've done the same exact color blonde forever. It was time for a change.
That's all.

fall? kind of?

Fall means that I find any excuse to wear boots. I love them. Except that I need new ones and I'm waaaay too picky to even find one pair that I love. That's just one of the many things I'm picky about, including but not limited to:
-nail polish colors
-phone covers
and much more. So if you have any cute boot suggestions, throw em at me!
Oh and I made my return to Provo this weekend. It was fun, but it just reaffirmed the fact that I most definitely made the right choice to leave when I did. Provo if fun, but I'm glad that phase of my life is over. The fall colors were beautiful, even if it was cold and rainy all weekend. We did have a pretty epic (that's another thing I'm picky about... I feel like people overuse the word epic but in this case, it's fitting) dinner at PF Changs that included not one, but two hot waiters, lots of food, free desserts, and the exchanging of phone numbers for a select few. I think it was the hardest I've laughed in awhile, thanks to KB, Jessi and Paige. I love them.
I wish I was better at taking pictures. I don't even remember the last picture I took.
I like Taylor Swift and how she puts people on blast in her songs. Dear John is my new favorite.
BBALL SEASON STARTS IN A WEEK!!!! I'm obviously a happy girl.
Disneyland this weekend. Then Disneyland for thanksgiving. It's a good thing I'm pretty sure its impossible to get too much disney, otherwise we might have a problem!
Charlie is coming so so so soon. I'm thrilled!
I'm pretty sure thats all.

friends. real ones.

Sorry I'm a picture stealer! And that this picture is appearing everywhere but... I really just love it. Nothing makes me happier than being with these girls. There's something about them that just makes me laugh and laugh and laugh for hours. It makes me so happy that even though time and distance and marriage and babies and everything else in our lives has changed, our friendship never will. Thanks for the smiles ladies! Miss you all!

I really should be doing my library research project that's due tomorrow. Naturally, I'll blog instead, even though I don't have much to blog about. I've made my triumphant return to the hotels of the Strip to babysit for the wonderful mix of foreigners that come to Vegas with their kids. I don't really understand it, but hey! It puts money in my bank. The past two weeks have been straight Aussie- as in I've had nothing but Australian families. Let me tell you, whining about bed time is SO much cuter with an Australian accent. Really, I'm convinced they make the cutest kids. This influx of Oz has also made me realize something significantly lacking in my life: I've never been to the Grand Canyon. Every single family that I've had in the last little while has just raved about the greatness of the Grand Canyon and are positively shocked that I live so close and haven't been there. Here's the honest truth: I have absolutely NO desire to go there... sorry, foreigners. I know its a wonder of the world and all, but I'm just not in any hurry. I've seen plenty of canyons in my life, thank you. And I beat most of you Down Unders to the Great Barrier Reef, so there.
On a healthier note, I went to a great health seminar the other day on Juice Plus. I know, I know, Alyssa at a health seminar?! I think I just saw a pig fly past my window... no really, it's a miracle. And if you don't know what Juice Plus is, look it up because I can't really explain it that well. Its an amazing way to get the nutrition that your body requires from fruits and vegetables- really, the studies are amazing. I really enjoyed it. Did it get me to take my JP more regularly? Absolutely. Did it stop me from going through the McD's drive thru yesterday? Not quite... I do have my weaknesses, people. I'm a work in progress. Now if only I could get my a on the elliptical...
Lastly: I've been having car troubles. I don't like to discuss this because it gets me too heated but let's just say I've had to call AAA twice in a matter of 4 days. Not fun, my friends. Silver lining: car being in the shop= me stranded at home= my mom forcing me to do her halloween crafts for her= these cuties inspired by this amazing mom.

I think they're cute + festive.
I should probably return to my hw now.
