The Audacity of Hope.

A couple of weeks ago I went in to get my hair done, and I told my stylist I wanted Duffy/Julie Christie hair, and my friend Sara Gray at Vanity Junkie delivered. She sent me home with Big Sexy Hair's Big Tease- Back Comb in a bottle. This might be the most fun I've ever had doing my hair.

One of the more annoying things about moving back to Portland, is running into people I knew years ago. Sometimes, this is delightful, but other times, it is seriously obnoxious. A couple days ago, whilst waiting in the checkout line at Costco, I ran into one of my mom's old friends, whom I haven't seen in probably 15 years. After she overcame her shock that I was no longer a child, she asked if I was married.
"What are you doing? Are you married?"
"No I'm not married."
"You're not married?"
"How old are you?"
"And you're not married? With that hair, you're not married! I don't believe it"

A lot of people I've run in to, who don't know me very well, seem to be shocked that I am 26 and unmarried. (Although, one of my old visiting teachers, on our first - and only - actual visit, told me I would never get married. Then as a birthday present, gave me a care bear, one I dubbed "Always-a-Bridesmaid bear", before I gave it to DI.) I'm not shocked at my marital status, quite the opposite, but with the way she qualified her disbelief, "With that hair, you're not married!" I am now not entirely without hope that my hair might overcome all other deficiencies.

Sheri Dew has some great hair too.

You have to post pictures of your sexy new hair.

Who was that Visiting Teacher? Was she from our ward?

Molly, you are not old. You are ONLY 26. I know you are maybe the odd woman out among your friends, but take it from a city-dwelling, living-in-sin kind of girl: don't feel bad about it. That being said, sexy hair does solve all of life's problems.

Whoa just compared your hair to Sheri Dew? I'm scared.

I have always wanted Backcomb in a Bottle. Everytime I wander through Trade Secret I pick it up and put it down. I don't know why I've never indulged. You may have just inspired me.

Okay I totally meant to add yesterday, at least she didn't compare your clothes to Sheri Dew. The only time I have ever seen a gold star front and center on a suity-sweatshirt. NO JOKE! And the cuffs had ruffles. It was everything I could do to not laugh and I had to keep reminding myself, she is called of god, she is called of god...

maybe i'll write a blog describing this visiting teacher, she's from my current ward, not a byu ward, but kooky all the same.

and i'm not going to lie, the sheri dew comparison kind of drove me crazy. THIS MEANS YOU, DEANNA! xoxoxo
