yesterday was the day

So yesterday marked another new chapter in my ever changing life book. I finally graduated cosmetology school! Its been a hard year, a year with alot of illness, and sorrows. A year of happiness, and eternal bliss found. A year where i gained 4 new sisters and 3 new brothers. A year where i moved twice (which is more than i've moved in my entire life!). A year where i killed off two of my fish :( RIP kuzco and walker texas ranger. A year where i made some lasting friends. A year full of uncertainty and newness. A year of love for my husband and eternal partner and love for my family. A year where i finally found something that i'm good at and can do for the rest of my life. A year where i believed in myself and finished something that will benefit my family and others for the rest of my life. Its been amazing! and scary! and fulfilling! and aggravating! and now its over! (so to speak...)

Now i begin a new journey.

I found some pictures that are some of the most memorable moments from this past year (that i could find and FYI they are in a crazy order):

Rock n Roll Husband! (i went to a show right after we started dating)

Gracie. Right before we went on the cruise grace fell and split her chin resulting in the stitches you see.

My big brother Jeff Married Melanie! yay for another sister!

Wain bought a ploaris "toy". We all got to play with it, this is joes serious picture.

Jessie joined the Wight family...and is a food black hole. You probably can tell but that girl eats as much as i do.

This is Rachel's graduation. The 5 of us got to be friends in school...and this marked the time when we were all going to start graduating.

Jace turned 23! This was at his pool party. I dont have a picture of him that night on my computer.

Jace and i had our first Christmas together! We went to the temple to see the lights with friends Brian and Megan.

Us Hunts went on a cruise to Mexico. I was literally sick the whole time, until i got onto shore each stop. This is a picture of 4 of our siblings on a boat to Lovers Beach in Cabo.

Jeff needed a dental assistant for his boards in California. I went and for my bday he took me to Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific. We had alot of fun together!

I had a "toga 22!" themed bday party...this is my best man and maid of honor. :)

This is a picture from the cruise as well...we shared a cabin with Jen and Ken. This is the night everyone went to get sushi...except Jen and I. So we goofed around in the cabin and it resulted in this picture. A comb mustache. Good look huh?

This was Christmas morning at the Wights. I was sick...and it was so early at the hunts that i didnt have my camera. This only got taken because Jeff was on top of things and i wasnt.

This is one of our favorite wedding pictures.

This is another one.

I started making special memory boards for people and i now have people ordering them! its awesome!

My best friend on her sisters wedding day! They had me do all of their hair. It was an honor and they all looked beautiful!

This is the bride Emily. She is so stunning! It was a gorgeous day and I'm so proud of my "little sister"!

I chopped all my hair off! (okay not all of it) i did cut 6" off ...and sadly now jace has asked me to grow it back out. I loved my a line though.

I started experimenting with lots of updos and ended up having people wait for days for me to get their updos done by me.

I also experimented with lots of funky color before i left. It was kind of fun and liberating.

For my graduation yesterday i had Sammi Lewis do my hair and all manner of other services. When i was able to leave, My family, Jace, and Jace's family went to Applebees for a dinner celebration. :) The next few pictures are presents from the hunts. A subscription to hairstyle guide magazine!

A fun frame for my graduation certificate!

The COOLEST dustpan and broom!

These balloons were from Jeff and Melanie. They searched for a congrats balloon and all they could find was a great job and woo-hoo! Which i personally think is WAY better!

These flowers were from Melanie too. Shes so cute.

And my friend Tasha who graduated the week before me...stopped by and brought me this flowers. How sweet! I love them.

Okay everyone. The plan is to take my boards, get my license, find a job, and get prego. In that order :) If you ever want your hair done by me just message on here or give me a call. I'm doing it out of my home until i get a job at a salon. Loves to all!


  1. Congratulations!!! I'm so excited for you!! I had no clue you can do such amazing up-do's!! From now on you'll be my go-to up-do girl!! I have a little sister entering high school, so she's gonna need some help!! I miss you...

    PS Why haven't week hung out at all???

  2. Oooh!! That memory board is so cute!!! I might have to order one. I'll totally hire you as a stylist for when I get married again. :) It would be a fun California trip, right?!

  3. What a year! I'm glad that I could be a part of it. You are so talented! I wish you could have done my hair for my wedding (I hated it). I love those memory boards too! So crafty.
