Hola, New Mexico

Please excuse the cop-out... but I have to sum up New Mexico in pictures... cell phone pictures, at that. What was the #1 bummer of my trip out west? Having a beautiful, expensive Canon Rebel SLR camera and leaving it at home.

Because taxes are due tomorrow and I might do a more fun (funner-er?) write up about my time in the Land of Enchantment, how's aboooot if'n I chuck these pictures up here and open it up for a caption contest?

Include the number and a caption for the corresponding photo for the grand prize of making me and other readers smile!

1 -- White Sands, NM

2 -- More White Sands

3 -- I think you know this Lady.

4 -- On the way to Cloudcroft, NM

5 -- This was a scary, skinny road in a mountain range...

6 -- More scary, skinny road photos.

7 -- Gettin' mah hurrr did.

8 -- I wanted to take that lady home with me.

9 -- The git'up.

10 -- I could not have loved my up-do more.

11 -- I have no idea where this is...

12 -- 36 hours after she did my hair...

13 -- Please have fun with this one.
I don't want to post pictures of the bride or other people because they didn't sign a waiver... that would be rude. I'm sorry to post so many of me, but I just couldn't get enough of what that woman did with my hair.

When I sat down in that chair, I said, "I'd like this and this. Don't bother curling it because my hair has never held a curl longer than an hour." She had the last laugh because here we are a full 36 hours after she did my hair and I could be in a toddler pageant with these bouncy ringlets.

Overall, my mom and I had a beautiful week and met a lot of beautiful, wonderful people. I got to see my oldest friend marry the love of her life surrounded by people who love her.

We've come a long way from the days of buzzing around the soccer field, following the ball like seven-year-old bees to a flower. This week was one, long defining moment in my life that told me: "Hey, you're a grown up now. These are the new teaching moments in your life. Listen up!"

I look forward to reading your captions!

Nice photos. Thanks for sharing.

Spence Ohana said...

I'm not very good at coming up with captions but just wanted to say you looked so beautiful and loved your up do!

Liesl said...

I LOOOOVE your hairdo! Gorgeous! I also love how fun hair is when you take an updo out!

I'll think of some captions when I am more awake!

9 - My best teen side-stance, self-shot, mirror photo.

10 - You almost can't tell this is a fake tan.

I've got nothing for #13. I tried, but I just can't come up with anything. I just think it's funny that neither Jesus nor the Sheriff can bring themselves to look at her.

Honestly though, I think I've stumbled on a random blog. Who IS that girl in the photos above?? The hair truly is AMAZING.

I love that picture of Our Lady. Absolutely beautiful.
And I love your hair!
And I'm not creative enough for a caption contest. I'm lame. :p
BTW. I'm awaiting your comments on my posts. I've been waiting almost a week! (Ok...not that much - I tend to exaggerate!)

Thank you, Marquis!

Thank you so much, Spence!! She did a lovely job!

Lisel- I've never gotten one done professionally before, so that was an experience. I think I have a bobby pin lodged in my skull. Worth it.

Kevin- hahahaha Good point on that last one.

Tina- I don't think these were very good pictures for a caption contest, but they were all I had. Thank you!! Yes, Our Lady was in a restaurant, which was so refreshing!

Vanessa Torres said...

Next time you go to White Sands, bring a toboggan and go sliding down the dunes. It's totally worth it! :)
