A Make Over Story




Well this might not be a blog about me, but I had to share this great make over story! My dear friend and room mate Erika Arwen Childs(aka Bepa) cut her hair for the first time in 20 years! It looks sooooo hot! It makes me want to do something drastic with my hair. It is amazing how different someone can look when they get rid of a few inches of hair! So tell us what you think of this makeover? Doesn't she look great?!

Turtlenecks, Little People, and The Venetian!

Well this past weekend Megan Neeley came to visit us here in Las
Vegas. While Erika, Megan and I were shopping for some mission clothes for Megan we found some winter-vomited-on- turtlenecks for only 2 dollars each. I thought they looked very teacherific, and since we are all working on becoming teachers, or already one, we thought these turtlenecks would be a great part of our collection.
We put on these glorious turtlenecks (that have little mugs of cocoa, sleds, and mittens on them) and walked around the Venetian Hotel on the strip. We got plenty of weird looks, but the worst of it was when a man with a video camera was recording us! Megan caught him recording us and he hurried to face his camera to the ceiling, which apparently was soo fascinating.

The next part of our adventure was when we were looking at the prices for gondola rides we noticed some cameramen. We were trying to see if there was anyone famous and when we spotted them I said fairly loudly "It is the Little People!", meaning the "TLC's Little People, Big World" of course. So we took some photos of them, and hoped to be caught in the background of this tv show. Now if we are in the background we won't be hard to miss; just look for the blob of christmas turtleneck in the background!









As we left the venetian we ran into a cross dresser, and we felt Megan had the complete Vegas experience!
We finished off the evening with some "family photos" in our turtlenecks. And here they are for your enjoyment. We tried to make them as cheesy as possible!















Above: This one is entitled "Mom, and Mom and Megan"












I had to put this last one in, because I love all of our faces! Especially Erika's! We told her to make a really cheesy smile and she did a good job! As she was making this face she made some high pitched squealing noises, which made it even better!
