It's ON.
I'm moving! I'm moving! I'm moving!
Yes, I'm a little excited. I've been trying to make Nevada work for me...made a solid effort to make myself a permanent resident but alas, I came to the conclusion that I needed to move away much to the chagrin of my poor roommate.
JUNE 15th I should be back, moved in, and ready to go. I will be living in Riverside with my parents(cough) and working at this salon like a block and a half away. I will be able to walk there which is good for two reasons. 1. gas is like $800/gallon 2. exercise
I like living with my parents actually. I have my own space and can do my own thing and when we do cross paths, I get along with them pretty dang well.
SO when you need to recommend a hair and makeup artist to someone in the 951, send 'em on over! The salon I'm going to be in is cool and the owner is totally cool. It's pretty much everything I've been looking for so I'm way excited.
side note: I just finished Stephenie Meyer's vampire series. I read Twilight last year and just hadn't gotten around to the other two b/c I didn't really like Twilight all that much. But after reading New Moon and Eclipse, I would have to say I like the series. Her writing got SO MUCH better towards the end. My advice to someone who hasn't read it would be to pretend that all three were one big book and to not give up and just read through them all. I realize that you all will hate me for saying this but I think I'm a Jacob fan. I wasn't until the very end of Eclipse. I don't know....we'll have to see how the fourth book pans out!

This weekend I went to my good friend Liz's wedding in LA. I'm pretty good friends with all of Liz's family and they all obsess over my full name. It's not Tracy--It's Tracy Lee Green with every address. Actually lately, it's been TLG a lot. Dr Tray kinda came and went. So even if some of the extended family didn't know my face, all I had to say was my full name and they knew exactly who I was.
It was a smaller wedding than I'm used to and I was right there in the middle of all of the action. I did like everyone's hair and even did some makeup. It was fun but a lot of work! I was exhausted by the end of the day--to the point that I wanted to cry. But I didn't. Just kidding I did. When Liz and her sisters and cousins did this polynesian dance that I can't remember the name to, I cried. It was so pretty and all I could think about was how cool it was that they are keeping the traditions of their culture alive.
I think I've been to one too many sealings because I had to really focus on being reverent when we were sitting in the sealing room waiting to start. I was trying not to make faces at everyone and run over and whisper silly things in their ears. It was a good thing they started when they did! I made it through without crying until the end. After that, my roudy insides came crashing out and I told Deanna that I wasn't crying, it was just raining on my face.
It was painful to not laugh after that.
Lately the thing that makes me really tear up in the ceremony is at the end when the sealer tells you all of the blessings you are going to recieve from having made those special covenants. I'm so happy for Liz and Rob! ....and everyone else and their mom that's decided to up and get married this year. heart you all!

So I was really excited to go to the mailbox and see a card that wasn't a wedding announcement. My aunt randomly sent this one. Isn't it funny?

It says 'the search for mr. right continues....'
I love you Aunt Diane!
