Quote of the Day!

"My dear brothers and sisters, may the laughter of children gladden our hearts. May the faith of children soothe our souls. May the love of children prompt our deeds. 'Children are an heritage of the Lord' (Ps. 127:3)." Thomas S. Monson

The Start of "Something Silly"

Everyone keeps telling me to write my "silly" moments down so I figured I would just blog them. Where to begin.... I seem to always be "running faster" than I should.... in other words doing more than I can realistically chew. As a result I tend to have really absentminded moments that lead to my crazy life.....

So my first moment... a classic... Ashtyn got a "beauty salon" last year for Christmas. "To be like Aunt Brittney" of course...complete with blue curlers. The day after Christmas I let Ashtyn do my hair, whatever she wanted. She did a great job brushing, cliping, and placing baby blue curlers right on top of my head.
A few hours later... we need a part for our new Wii, I volunteered to run to Game Stop or Wal-Mart to grab the part knowing both places would be packed. I raced into Game Stop and looked around, the part was not in stock and the line was outrageous with people giving me funny looks. I finally dart across the street to Wal-Mart and head directly to the electronic department and waited in line to purchase my accessory.
I heard two ladies ahead of me talking about needing a new hair stylist, someone who really new how to relax curly hair. I thought I would be helpful and tell these ladies of my ever so talented sister... as I finished giving them the "low down" and they looked at me with shock and strange faces ignoring me... I realized I still had baby blue curlers in my hair. I laughed the whole way home to think of how many people I passed and that I was giving hair tips!
