I want to tell you all about the 4 film makers who spent the entire weekend with us and how much we fell in love with them. I have 4 new amazing friends whom I ADORE!! It was such a great experience.
I want to tell you about my new favorite blog post written by my friend Miggy.
OH, and I have some super, SUPER, SOOOOOPER, SUPERBLY exciting news to share with you too. I'm just waiting for the right time so I don't jinx anything. It's pretty much off the charts unbelievable.
BUT... I'm a little tired tonight so I'm just going to do a quick, fun, light-hearted blog about an experience I had today. I have been laughing about it to myself non-stop. I'm still giggling right now. Oh, man. It was so good. Hahahahaha. I can't stop! LQTM to the max! (Laughing Quietly To Myself).
Some of you may have seen my facebook post about it. But I need to tell you more details. (If I can stop shaking from laughter and actually type).
Ok. To set the scene I need to give you a bit of background.
I volunteered to be a hair model for my friend (my brother's wife's brother) who works at Lunatic Fringe. (A super swanky, awesome, hip, amazing salon in Salt Lake). I've always been adventurous with my hair and will usually sit down in the chair and say, "Do whatever you want." So being a hair model has always been something I love doing. I did it at the Aveda salon in NYC when I lived there too. Free haircuts from top-notch hair cutter people? (What are they called? Magicians? I love them.) Sign me up.
So anywhooty, I walk in this morning, sit down, and this girl sitting next to me with long reddish/orangish/pinkish hair (also a hair model) says to me, right off the bat, "I'm so nervous..." (It seemed she really needed to talk to someone about her hair issues and had something she wanted to tell me.)
Oh, you'll look great with a bob (all models were getting the same cut today).
Well...its not that. I'm just worried because I've been growing my hair out for my wedding.
Oh. Ya. If you've been growing it out for your wedding it would be hard to see it all chopped off.
Since I'm having a nude wedding I was really hoping to have it long to drape over my shoulders and kind of cover my chest.
(Ummm....EXCUSE? Doth my ears deceive me? Did she just say nude wedding? And she wanted her hair as an accessory to "cover her up" at the nude wedding? I am so confused right now. I'M SO CONFUSED RIGHT NOW!!)
Oh, ya. A nude wedding, (like ya do.) Mmm Hmm. Go on. (Nude wedding!!!! Mental freak out!) So, what made you come up with that idea?
Oh, its just something I've always wanted to do since I was a little girl.
Oh, yes. (Nodding my head). Oh. (Totally. Every little girl's dream. )
It's going to be up Little Cottonwood Canyon. Guests are asked to come nude as well. You are totally welcome to come. It's going to be in the Fall.
OH!! Thank you! That is so kind of you! So its going to be outside? (With naked people? Naked pastor or what? I just got invited to a nude wedding. BUCKET LIST! Cha-Ching! )
Ya, you can rent this outdoor area.
Do you need to get special permission for this sort of thing? What if there are hikers walking by, etc.
Well, I don't know. It should be fine. They rent out areas and its a private party so... (I'd say its a "private" party!)
My boyfriend's parents are kind of upset about it. I mean, he's practically already my husband but we just need to have a ceremony and make it official.
So are they upset about the marriage itself or more the nude ceremony part?
I think mostly the ceremony part.
(Ppsshht. In-laws. Always so hard to please).
Luckily, my hair grows pretty fast so I'm hoping by the Fall it will be long enough.
Oh, me too. (I wouldn't want you showing too much skin. )
That's when the hair stylists returned to their stations to start on our cuts.
Well friends. I still don't know the bride-to-be's name. But I do know this: I've decided to start growing my hair out for the next nine months. I hear Cottonwood Canyon is beautiful in the Fall!
For those curious about the haircut:
Inspiration for the cut
The finished product
Below is my post and comments that have kept me giggling ALL.DAY.LONG
Hair model. Paul Mitchell/ Lunatic Fringe. Free $60 haircut. Royal treatment. Worth the early wake. Don't know how/why to do hash tags. But I do know that the girl next to me just told me she's having a nude wedding...guests included. I was honored to receive an invitation. Met her five minutes ago. Rapid fire friendship.
But in all seriousness...I was very kind to her and sincerely interested in why she is doing this and in her as a human being. She was so easy to talk to (I mean... there must have been some special friendship chemistry going on for such a quick nude invitation to take place) and I hope she has a very successful marriage.
I know many of you are photographers. I'm pretty sure I'd be able to find out her name if you have some free time in your schedule in the Fall and want to book a wedding.
