Haircutby Angie

Ok, don’t tell my sisters, but… I cut my own hair today. Just a trim, mind you. I bought some shears recently because I’ve been stewing about whether to spend a bunch of money having my hair cut professionally, but it seemed pointless since I just needed the ends trimmed. I figured that, no matter how badly I botched it (as long as I didn’t cut too much), I could always go to a stylist after all to fix it. Well, today I got up the courage to do it and, amazingly, I think my dignity is still intact!

I’m not sure if this is a life lesson learned or just an example of very good luck, but at least I can check one more thing off my “to do someday soon eventually” list! :)

Christmas Decorationsby Angie

Christmas TreeJim and I weren’t going to buy a Christmas tree this year, since we will be spending the holidays in Utah… but as I was planning for our St. Mikulás Day Hungarian Feast, I just felt like we needed some decorations to accompany our festivities. I was going to Target anyway, so I bought the tree on sale, and just cheap little lights and ornaments… it was only about $20 in all, but it looks quite pretty all put together (if I do say so myself)!

So, here are some pictures of our lovely little tree. Look, there are already some presents under it! Those are actually Mikulás gifts: some are going into our friends’ shoes during our Mikulás dinner, and the package on the right is from the Hoffman Mikulás in Utah, for Jim and me.

Jim & the Tree

In the picture on the right, you can see where the tree is set up. I know it doesn’t look like a fantastic spot, but we don’t really have a fantastic spot for a tree this size – it either hides or gets in the way (hm…sounds like I’m talking about a pet ferret or something).

I also included this picture of Jim (playing Guitar Hero), so you can see how tiny a three-foot tree looks beside a six-foot person. Small, but sure cute! Hey, like me!
