It's just one of those things....

where I can't tell if this skirt is really dorky or really cool. Spencer and I went out on a date on Saturday night and we decided to go shopping after dinner. I passed by this little diddy while we were about to check out so I just grabbed it knowing I could take it back. I wore it to church today, but I still have mixed feelings about it. I don't know, maybe it's the color, I don't know how I feel about wearing taupe on my lower half and white around my waist, maybe it's the style, I feel a little 80's in it, if only I could accessorize like my sister it is quite possible I could make this look cool. Maybe it's the size, I feel like it is too big and there is too much slack in the hips, but it is also quite possible that I wear my clothes way too tight and that might also explain why I have not had a calling in Young Women's in the past 6 years;)

By the way, how do you like me scars on my shins, I now have 4 bruises from my little fall last week.

This, however, is my FAVE! I heart you Banana Republic, I just wish you lived closer to me.

It's been a while...

since I have been this embarrassed!!! Today I fell on my head at the gym. No, I didn't just trip and then just catch my self, I didn't slide a little. Out in the open and in front of a ton of people I have seen at the gym for YEARS I fell on my HEAD! It was a catastrophic train wreck! See the picture below, I was on this thing, except I had my hands on the poles and I decided to put my feet up and hold in my stomach to tighten my core for a minute, then I lost my balance and started to fall. Lucky for me there were weights on the floor to break my fall. Seriously, it was a disaster, I wanted to leave, but I had to kind of laugh it off to the people who kind of looked awkwardly at me and asked me if I was o.k. Then I had to finish my workout and then leave. Then on the way home, I realized how much my legs and arms hurt from the bruises I had acquired. I don't think I have been this embarrassed since high school. I don't want to go back tomorrow.

The Hansen's 4th of July Extravaganza

We had a great 4th of July. It was sunny, nice, no one was sick. We spent the afternoon in our back yard taking some pictures and then we took a little visit to the bookstore and then to the
7-11. These are the photos Warren and I took before the Jackson's 4th of July bash.

These are my 4th of July jeans.

These were taken at the Jackson's. We had a great time.

Dad called this the "Washougal Vision"

It is a cool picture.
Bike rides and baseball.

The craziest thing happened to me!

A few months ago I read a book called Mormon Enigma, Emma Hale Smith and I was so completely offended by its contents that I posted a somewhat scathing, but fair, review of it on Well the author made a comment on my review! She said she would be happy to discuss any aspect of the book as well as her reasons for writing it and then she left her personal email address. I am trying to compose my thought in my head. But it shocked the heck out of me!
