Shopping for the Audition!!

So, looking back over my check list, I have two things I can check off.

1. Finish application for BYU
2. Film prelim audition.

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yesterday was a bit of a rush. I got up bright and early at 8:30am. I know, I know, for most people that isn't early, but for me that is like the crack of dawn! Imagine how I look and feel in my first class of the day on T and Th. Yeah it's at 8:30am, so I have to be up at 7:30am. Pretty much the soul crushing, life killing time of the day. LAME! But I just went on a total tangent that really has nothing to do with what happened yesterday.
Change lanes, U TURN!

But yesterday, I got up . . . early and showered and dressed, ready for a day of shopping. See I didn't have a dress that I felt was suitable for filming an audition. So i took the debit card (to my husbands shagrin) and went to the store. Well, to liked 10 stores. No joke. I went to:

T J Max, Ross, Macy's, Debs, Urban Outfitters, Nordstroms, 2 <3 Love, Head over Heels, and many others.

After the first three stores that I didn't find anything, I was getting very discouraged. Two problems with shopping for Hayley Bell. 1) I am 6'0" tall. That means nothing fits right. Dresses that would be totally fine for some women, look like I tried on my nieces dress-up clothes. 2) I am also a size 14 (which I am very proud of!). I have found that most clothing stores do not have any idea of what the general populace wears. Every store I went to, I found every size up to 13, or no sizes beyond a 9. It was very disheartening. I was beginning to loose hope when, up came into my view . . .

JC Penny

My saving grace!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if it was a sale, or if they just knew that I needed a dress yesterday, but there it was, a great sale and GREAT dresses. I tried on a ton of dresses, but nothing really fit quiet right. Nothing gave that amazing flare.

Then, on the rack, acting like a simple dress that didn't have powers of making a voluptuous body look amazing, was a black and grey dress. It didn't look like much when I saw it, but decided 'what the heck' no reason not to. I went into the dressing room, tried on the dress and gasped.

This dress did things to my body that I never knew existed (get your mind out of the gutter!). It sucked in all the right places, and also curved in ALL the right places. WOW!! I felt like Christina Hendricks (pictured left).

So I was pretty happy!! Sadly I do not have a picture of me in the outfit. When I have the DVD, I'll post a few shots and some video for you guys. Hugs!

When life gets hard

When we have good day's, they're great! When we have bad day's they are the worst that we could possibly imagine. When we have bad months, that's when it starts to rag on you. Let's list out some things that have happened in the last month for Weston and I.

1. Wisdom Teeth removal
2. Complications from WTR
3. Emergency bone graft surgery to fix complications
4. Stitches came out
5. We spend close to $100 on drugs to handle pain and bacteria
6. The FED's took $90 from us because we transfered to much money from our savings account
7. Our credit card was closed because of an incorrect address
8. We just found out we can't afford to go to CA for thanksgiving
9. I'm crazy behind in my classes because of above WTR process

so on and so forth . . .

So pretty much life is crappy right now. I am so sick and tired of dealing with the crap that has come at us for the last month. I am tired of pain and of not having money. I tired of going to school every day when I hate it. I'm tired of looking at the pain in my husbands face because he doesn't feel like he can provide for us. I'm just . . . tired.
