A not so Valentine Valentines day

I had the flu or something like it on my all time favorite holiday. It didn't even feel like Valentine's day. David did a really good job though of making it the best he could with me being sick. I could barely sit up I was so achy. He brought me flowers in the afternoon, made me lunch, and helped me move from the bedroom to the living room. Then he made an extrodinary dinner and we watched the Cosby show and I went to bed way early. We are planning a Valentines day sometime in the summer to make up for it.

remember my Photo Shoot....

I did my first photo shoot last month, and I have been a terrible blogger and am just now putting these up. I am so happy with how they turned out. I did another photo shoot yesterday and can't wait to show everyone. Thank you Charles Clay for the amazing photography.

CAPER (again)

Earlier this month I went with my school to Vegas to attend Caper. It's a big hair show Paul Mitchell puts on for it's students. To go you had to sale 45 bags of product and only 30 people were allowed to go from each school. We got to meet with the most amazing stylist for Paul Mitchell, and take classes from them. It was an amazing experience. These pictures don't do it justice I took more video then pictures so I will have to make a video montage soon. I'm so grateful that I got to go. Thank you to everyone who bought bags and if you need more I have more!

on the way to the hotel. The first day there was just a career fair and I got to meet and show off my portfolio to some really good salons.

A little In-N-Out with Carra.The next day they had a huge opening general session. Which included crazy hair, motivational speakers, teaching, and more crazy hair. This is us waiting in line to run and get a spot in the front in row. I mostly took videos of this so again video montage is needed.

That night it was the white party, it was so weird to see everyone in all white since black rules our life. Me and Angus Mitchell the son of Paul Mitchell.
Cassland, Lucie Doughty (editorial director for Paul Mitchell) and the not so best picture of me. The Last day we went to classes.

Love this hair!
At the Look and Learn. We basically watched the top stylist for Paul Mitchell perform crazy cuts, colors, and up-dos, and were able to ask questions.
Cutting class
Yummy lunch
Color Class
I know this picture looks so fake but I promise it is real, I had my camera zoomed in when I took it. Me and Takashi an amazing platform artist for Paul Mitchell.
The closing general session again video is needed.

Coco in the fridge

(this isn't the best picture but I'm surprised I even got one considering how frantic I was)

Coco loves to jump in the fridge, she does it almost every time I open it. I usually catch or stop her from doing it. But this one morning I was in a hurry and when I went to grab my water bottle before leaving I didn't see her jump in and I left for the day. This was at 9:15. I didn't come home until 6.

Usually when I get home she is right at the door, she obviously wasn't today. I thought maybe I locked her in the closet cause we shut the door so she won't play in there, she wasn't there but I could hear her crying then it hit me she was in the fridge! and to make it worse she had gotten into a jar of homemade syrup that didn't have a real lid. There was syrup and fur everywhere. Poor Coco kept trying to lick the syrup off but she was covered. After I gave her a bath and warmed her up we spent the next hour cleaning the fridge out.

While in the fridge she ate an entire bag of lunch meat and I'm assuming whatever syrup wasn't actually on her. I kept waiting for her to throw up but she never did. She was a real trooper through the whole thing and still loves me. I know this story makes me sound like a horrible owner and I probably am but I'm just so grateful she lived through 8 1/2 hours of fridge time. and the funny thing is she didn't learn her lesson she still jumps in the fridge

(me and Angus Mitchell)

We got back from Vegas last night at 5 a.m. They let us have the day off today thank goodness I would have been a little zombie. Anyways caper was amazing I had so much fun. I can't wait to share all my wonderful experiences. But for now I need to shower and unpack and then me and David are having a date night. I can't wait. I also need to post pictures from the photoshoot, and how coco got locked in the fridge all day.

side note: my hair has somehow gotten way too short, I feel like I am not apart of the long hair club anymore. I don't know what happened and I'm kind of upset about it.

On a different note please ignore how ugly my blog is looking I'm trying to make it cuter I promise I just haven't figured it out yet. I've almost had it for 2 years and I still can't figure it out.
Happy February!
