Temple Lights

Over the weekend Hubby and I went out with my family for my little Brother's birthday. We went to The Garden at the top of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. It was pretty good food. Afterwards we went and walked around Temple Square to look at the lights. I hadn't been since I was a teenager, so I had forgotten how many lights they actually put up. I took a few pictures.These don't do it justice, but if you click on the pictures to make them bigger it gives you a better idea.Here is just a front view of the Temple without Christmas lights.I really liked all the red they had.This was a really neat Nativity they had between properties. They had all these lit candles floating on the pool. It just captures the majesty of the scene, the Temple, and the calmness of the water.
If you live in Northern Utah, and have a chance to go, it's fun, but also dress warm, with lots of layers.

Two Buns Up

Today was a pony tail day, but I wanted something a little more exciting, and I remembered seeing this great tutorial from Happy Together, so I thought I'd try it out. Here are my results (keep in mind it's been in all day, and I've touched and bumped it a lot, so it's messier that when I started my day.)The front is pretty boring, as I don't have bangs, and didn't do a part.This is the view from the top, I like this view, but it's the most unseen.Here is the side view, super cute! Don't mind my fuzzy stragglers, it's a product of naturally frizzy hair.Here is the back straight on. A little messy, but it still looks cool.Here is another back view, but more top than bottom.
It is a super easy do, so head over to Happy Together and check out her tutorial.
