Hello All :)

So my hair keeps getting longer and longer. I really should get it cut considering the fact that it keeps falling out everywhere and attaching itself to everything. Jake would like me to get my bob haircut back. I would really like to grow it out enough to be able to donate it and still have a long enough hair cut to put into a poney tail. I LOVE the ladies haircut on I LOVE IT!


Maybe just a bit longer so I won't feel so self-consious BUT who knows. I've been saying this for over a year.

SO...I have been doing the body-by-vi shakes for about a month now and have yet to weigh myself. I don't want to be disappointed. Especially considering how much the stuff costs.  I am too lazy to go out and buy a scale and I haven't walked down to the gym since Hawaii decided to turn into Rainy Town Central.

I was looking so forward to my bible study this morning over James and had all my verses memorized and my homework completed till I walked outside to see my purse sitting inside the locked truck holding my set of car keys. Jake is on the other side of the island at Pearl Harbor securing a convoy SO I had to stay home. I am really enjoying this study and love each day.

Saw a pair of cute affordable shoes I want from LL bean! Only $29.99 and tax free and shipping for free!

There are several things I would just love to have in my closet right about now:

Jake was really kind enough to take me out and let me have my shopping fix a couple of weeks ago after church. I got this GORGOUSE sweater from Banana Republic that was on sale! And a striped shirt :)
He is so nice to me. I don't know why I have the need/desire for new things. That morning it just seemed like everything in my closet had holes in it, stained, or too small/big. It is so hard to have the majority of your clothes stored 900+ miles away. I never want to find my worth in clothes. It seems when I go back home I feel so pressured in having nice new things while being here it doesn't matter. I seem so content. Why is that? I know that is so materialistic and I HATE it. I think that for me, it helps me feel prettier to know I look nice in what I am wearing. I don't like stores which a lot of people do like. It seems like the only clothes that look decent on my come from the expensive clothing lines...banana republic and jcrew. I wish I looked good in target clothes and old navy. I just feel like they don't flatter me and I feel awful in their clothes. I know I can't be the only one that feels this way!? I also wish that the only jeans that do flatter my body costs way more than I care to admit. I just love the feel of Sevens tho! sigh.....wouldn't it be so nice to be able to look great in any brand of jeans?


Some exciting news! Megay (my beautiful cousin who you can read about here) told me about her tennis coach breeding amazing golden retrievers!! Hopefully we can bring home a new addition to our family by the end of the year! It shouldn't be so stressful since we should have the money saved up by then and we will be moved into a new home!
We have 3 names so far:
1. Archimedes
2. Shamus
3. Copper

We both like the name Copper and think it fits really well for a red haired beauty! However, I HAVE ALWAYS loved the name Archimedes so we might fit that in their as well ;)

I hope everyone has had a nice rainy afternoon! I know we have had plenty of rain enough for everyone!


  1. I just LOVE reading your blogs! You're still the same old LOVEable Emily. I try to read them so I can catch up with what's going on. I wish I had enough to say to have one! :)

    I agree with you on the jeans - I think I was introduced to them by you and your sisters. (That along with nicer brands in general) I wish I could go back to buying Khols or whatever kind of jeans because they're much more affordable. But I agree, They just DON'T fit as well. I tried to explain that to Justin and he just couldn't understand how I could pay so much for jeans until we bought him a couple of pairs from Platos Closet. Needless to say, but he understands now. :P

    And you're going through James again!? Jealous. I honestly haven't been in a bible study since Greenwood. I think about it often and miss it. :( I'm always really encouraged to see that you're continuing to seek that out in a new place. (I guess maybe it's not so new anymore?) I wish I could be brave like you!

  2. Girl beware Body by Vi. A coworker of mine spent all this money doing it for 6 months, and she gained the weight back in like 2 weeks after stopping because most of it was water weight. You HAVE to work out while doing it in order to lose fat (or so her rep told her once she complained about how quickly the weight came back on). I think it works, you just have to work out with it in order for the loss to stick around. Just my two cents! :)
