You've Got to be Joking Me!

I was never cut out to be a beautician. I have known that for a long time. But here is the proof that came like a slap in the face this morning (P.S. This is AFTER I tried to make it better).

Good look, huh? I cried, and then we laughed, and then I cried some more. I didn't fully listen to Dug when he asked me to do the back of his hair (aka his hair line) and I was dumb enough to not check what size blade was on the clippers. I just went straight for it and before I knew it, there was a large, bald rectangle on the back of his head. Then this was the convo that followed:

Me: Oh my goodness. You've got to be joking me. Babe, I just cut your hair. I'm gonna cry.
Dug: (He stops and then reaches to touch the back of his hair) I thought you were joking around with me but I heard the hair cut. (Starts laughing).
Me: (Crying/laughing as I sit in the corner on the bathroom floor) Babe, I'm really really sorry. I can't believe this. You have to wear a hat all the time and we can't go to church with you like that!
Dug: (Still laughing) Breeze, it's fine. Just cut my hair shorter to match better but just be careful this time.
Me: (Wincing because I like his hair longer and scared to try again) Are you okay? Aren't you mad at me?
Dug: No, I think you having to walk around with me like this is enough of a punishment. And I don't have to see it, everyone else does. Plus, we will save money on shampoo and I won't have to worry about doing my hair now.

Clearly I am more devastated then he is. Once the shock wears off hopefully I will think it's as funny as he does. Maybe I might even come to enjoy his sweet bald rectangle with a diagonal in the middle.
Happy Sunday. :)

My poor mom cried too.
The tradition continues...

Crunch time! (Krissy- not Crunch as in Jamie haha)

Ok.. so it's been a hectic last few weeks. We found out that Doug got into pharmacy school last Monday. I am SOO proud of him! We are excited. It's a 3 year accelerated program which means he will be full time with hardly any breaks, but we can deal with that cause:

#1) Midwestern University is 1 of the 2 Pharmacy schools in Arizona {the other is in Tucson}


#2) The quicker we are done with school the better!

So that's exciting news! More fun news is that we are looking for a house since we know we will be stuck here for at least 3 years. It's has been hard work let me tell you.. I have lost a lot of sleep because of it.. but it's been fun! We have a short amount of time to close a house since Doug is starting school June 6. Even our offer was accepted tomorrow, it still takes 30 days to close. Yikes! Not a lot of time. So yes, I'm a crazy stressed woman right now. We had an offer that wasn't accepted and we have another offer we should hear about soon. Wish us luck! {For those who are wondering, we are trying to find somewhere half way between family and school.. which is quite difficult to find}.

With all of this good news comes some.. well lets say stressful news. I have two lab finals tomorrow, and exam on Friday, and two finals next week. Oh my goodness! My brain is pretty much overloaded right now. And it's affected me to where I'm not-so-nice to Dug at times. Luckily, he still loves me and understands. In fact, he is way more understanding. After I came home late from a long day tonight, Dug left this on my pillow {he went to play raquet ball}.

For those of you who can't read chicken scratch, it says:

Love my babe,

I am going to come home and snuggle & cuddle you so hard you will become part of me. Then I am going to eat every cell of your body. Love you much, Duggy Buggy Bear.

{Note: All of these are inside jokes, so I literally laughed out loud because it was funny and cried at the same time because it was ridiculously thoughtful of him.. yes I'm a little over-emotional.}

Seriously. How in the world did I get so lucky? I love this man so much. It's wonderful to be married to my best friend who amazingly knows what I need when I need it the most.
