Dear never felt so sore in my life,

Okay, fine.  I'm being slightly dramatic.  But seriously.  My right arm hurts like a mother and my inner thighs are so sore, I wouldn't be surprised if I looked down and they were black and blue.  

You're curious.  "How could she possibly be aching so much?  Intense night at the gym?"  No...I'll do you one better.  Intense Family Home Evening at Thanksgiving Point.  Now I know what you're thinking, "What?  Pull some muscles in the corn maze?"  Guess again.  Try the fact that I rode on the mechanical bull for a good 2 minutes.  Doesn't sound like much, I realize that.  I was even in shock when I woke up the next day feeling practically worse than I used to after a grueling day at cheer camp (yes, I did just mention cheerleading camp on my blog).  I was so confused.  Many thoughts were racing through my mind, "I'm in shape, right?  Why am I SO sore???  Dang it Tanner, why did you tell me to lock my legs???  I KNEW I should've held on with both arms."  Luckily, we got at least one picture out of this experience.

It's official.  It's practically Friday and I'm still aching.  Will the mechanical bull be seeing my game face next fall?  No.  

Okay, that was me being dramatic again.  I'll be there... AND I'll be upping my time.  2 weeks of an aching body?  Pocket change.  

p.s. Is October really almost over?! 

Dear Something New Part 2,

Well, here are some pictures of the new cut.  I know people... it's quite the change, but each day I start to like it more and more.  I'm not one to be all upset if other people don't like it as much as I do, but let me tell you one thing that does bother me: when people voice their disliking in what they think is a clever way.  For instance, and I think the best yet, is when they say, "Do YOU like it?"  Yeah.  That one kills me.  Something about the phrase really gets beneath my skin.  Luckily, I've only heard it once thus far... let's keep it that way!  

So... here it is!  The latest and greatest Ashley... and p.s. the last picture is from our roommate photo shoot.  The pictures are great... post to come!

Dear Something New,


Well, it was time for a change.  We got a little bored the other day and decided it would be a really great idea to let Maeg cut some bangs for me!  After a couple snips of my hair throughout my scarf and 20 minutes later, I had bangs!  Maeg is such a little pro at everything though, so I wasn't too worried.  Not only does she go to college, but she's going on a mission AND hair school when she gets back.  Talk about real life achievements.

Now I have something to remind me of Maeg always when she leaves us for Temple Square next week :(

Dear School,

I hate your stinkin' guts.
You make me vomit.
You're the scum between my toes.
