Happy Valentine's Day, or at least I hope it will be

I swear on a stack of Books of Mormon that I actually did my hair tonight, but it certainly doesn't look like it.

Alyssa and I are going out for dinner and a movie with two guys she knows from high school. She's making herself beautiful, and has been doing so for the past two hours. She looked perfectly OK before she started.

Actually I'm just jealous because she can look very glamorous when she tries.  If I take too many pains with my appearance, I look like a thirteen-year-old trying to look sixteen. I took a shower, did my hair, and put on a little makeup. If I apply cosmetics too heavily I look ridiculous.

Our dates are picking the movie, so chances are  that it will be stupid and difficult through which to sit. Still, it's Valentine's Day; who wants to sit at home on Valentine's Day? Beyond that, we want to give Scott and Jillian a little time to themselves tonight.


  1. Aw Alexis, you are too hard on yourself. You are quite the cutie. Have a fun evening. I think I'll sit at home and drink beer.

  2. Thanks. I don't feel all that cute because my friends look their age and are gorgeous.

  3. We are our own worst critics. And when you are my age, it will be a great thing to look so young.
