Okay, I finally did. I chopped off my hair. I've been saying I was going to do it for quite a few months now and today just happened to be the day. It is very different for me, but I think I kind of like it. What does everyone think?
I awoke on August 13th with a sense of excitement. Not only was it our 15th wedding anniversary, but it was the first day of school. I hate to admit this, but I think I was more excited about it being the first day of school. :)
After walking the kids over to the school it was all I could do to not run, skip, and jump back to my car. Now don't get me wrong, I love my kids, but after the last two weeks it was definitely time to go back to school.

Friday morning I arrived at Barnes & Noble around 7:30 so I could be the first in line to receive my wristband. Crazy I know. I felt kind of weird being the oldest one standing in line, but with my competitive immature nature, I was proud to be the first and oldest one. :) The lower left picture shows how excited I am.
Around 9:15pm or so the girls and I arrived at LeAnna's so we could get dressed for the big event. Here we are dressed up as vampires going to a wedding. Kesa is dressed up as Bella (one of the main characters) I was Rosalie, LeAnna was Jane (Volturi) and Kassie was a human friend of Bella. Here we are looking suductive.
Longing for my vampire Edward
LeAnna and I decided we didn't like the smoothies

LeAnna guessing how many blood drops (jellybeans) are in the jar.
What a scratch!
They handed out vampire tattoos and werewolf scratches. Here we are showing them off.
These are the boxes that held our special books :)

Looking a little frightened aren't we Kassie!
First in line!
Paying for the books
Yahoo!!! We finally have our books
When we got home I thought I would goof off and take some pictures for Mark. Just because I'm 34 doesn't mean I have to act like it. :)
