Bearded men.....I love them. I wouldn't say I necessarily love a long beard, but a nice trimmed beard is so lovely. But that's not exactly all this post is really about. It's about 2 bands that I have recently discovered that I love. My friend Emily is a DJ on KRCL Wednesday nights and she has introduced me to a whole new world of music. Wednesday night Emily, our friend Jake and I went to a concert here in SLC at Kilby Court. The Head and the Heart was the main band. They are amazing. And mostly bearded. (See pic below)
And one of the most amazing and passionate bands I have heard in a long time is Mumford and Sons (shown below). More beards.....love it! I LOVE their album. There is not a song on there I skip over---except for one that is explicit, but I love the edited version "Little Lion Man." Every time I hear this lovely band from the UK I want to do a little jig. Their songs are poetic and beautiful.
And last but not least.....I am going to see Thor tonight with some friends for the sheer fact that Thor ( Chris Hemsworth) is such a lovely, bearded man! Thanks to all you beardies out there! :)
So, I did it. It was sort of on a whim. I had scheduled a hair trim with Parker and the day before decided I wanted to just chop it off. I chopped off somewhere between 9-10 inches. I have so much hair!
|These are the pieces of hair Parker sectioned off to cut. He likes to call these my hair nuggets.|
And they lived...
Happily ever after!
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!
Thank you for falling in love and being the best parents anyone could ask for!

I had such an amazing experience and am so grateful for all the wonderful people I met and all the amazing experiences I had. I could post a million pictures and talk about it for hours, but I thought I'd rather let the pics do all the work.

|This is my favorite pic, so I saved it for last. After our last day of clinic on Wednesday night we were all getting off the bus and just started jumping in the pool in our scrubs. It was such a blast!|
