Hey y’all, I learned how to curl my hair!

How sad am I? I’m 26-years-old and I’ve never known how to properly curl my hair. I always thought it wouldn’t curl because I have long, fine hair, but I found this tutorial which had some great tips!

And I recently bought a new ceramic curling iron for $19.99 (at Best Buy of all places)…it hadn’t occurred to me that my problem might be an old iron, but I was using a $10, 10-year-old iron.¬†That probably didn’t help! My hair always went flat in minutes. Seriously. So between the new iron and the new technique, it really worked well and I was pretty pleased with the result (forgive the camera-phone pic).

In other news, there’s a lot going on in our lives right now that I’d love to discuss, but I just can’t yet. Have you ever been at a point in your life where there are SO many imminent changes, and you just don’t know where you’ll end up in 6 months? Even a year? That’s us right now.

My hubbs is graduating this December, and we originally had our hearts set on moving back to California¬† (Jon was stationed in Twentynine Palms, CA during his 4 years in the Marines). It’s the amazing weather! We planned on getting grown-up jobs and looking for a home and what-not, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to play out that way. And I’m being intentionally cryptic here…I’ll be happy to share our plans when they’re set in stone, but I don’t really want to jinx it right now! Big life changes though. *sigh* I wonder where we’ll be in a year! It’s both exciting and frustrating.
