Tri-Ward Halloween Dance

I don't usually participate much in the big ward activities anymore.  I just kind of feel like I've been doing these things for so long now, and they don't excite me much anymore. But for some reason last night, I decided I'd go to the Tri-Ward dance. It had been awhile since I'd been to anything, and I kind of wanted to go.  So I came up with a costume and got dressed and off I went.

Now everyone knows the thing to do is to not get there right when the dance starts.  The dance started at 9:00, so I figured I'd get there around 10:00. Along the way I prayed out loud that I would be able to find a friend there, and I also told myself that I would give it a chance and stay at least an hour.

When I got there, things weren't looking too good at first.  But a few minutes into it, I found some of my old pals from my former Singles Ward, so I hung out with them.  We had a pretty good time as these things go - we danced in groups for the fast songs, and left the floor for the slow songs.  I even overachieved and stayed for 90 minutes (in my defense, I did have to get up very early this morning).  WooHoo! Hooray for Tracie!

Here's a photo of several of us taken in the photo booth - for the record, I was a rapper. I had a 'do rag on, wore my hat off to the side, put on plenty of bling, and even wore my pants down low so you could see my boxers underneath. STYLIN'! Now if I just knew some rap music.

New 'Do

For probably the last 10 years or so, I've had pretty much the same hairstyle. For the most part, it's been long, all one length, and I would eventually put it up in a ponytail almost every day, because I couldn't stand having it in my face. It drove me crazy, but I didn't know what to do with it, and at the same time, I liked that I could basically get up and go every day without a lot of effort. For the past several months now, I've been threatening to do something different and drastic, and finally, yesterday, I did. At the recommendation of Angel, I made an appointment with her stylist. It took several weeks to get in, but finally, the day arrived. Angel went with me, for moral support, and to be the photographer. I went in with some basic ideas, but after some consultation and looking at photos with Francine, this is what I ended up with. First, the "before" shot: In process: And finally, the finished product: I can't remember the last time
Hi, my name's Tracie and I'm a Mormon. That being said, I've provided enough context for the conversation I had with the receptionist at work today: Christy: (Showing me a photo) What picture is this movie from? Me: Mmmm, Serendipity maybe? Christy: should know this. Me: I should? Christy: (Finally) It's from the movie "Charlie"! Me: How would I know that? I don't watch Mormon movies. They're dumb. Now that I've let the cat out of the bag, I guess I should also confess that I also don't listen to Mormon pop music (other than the original recording of The Forgotten Carols), or read Mormon fiction. So sue me. Let's face it, it's not like most of them are of real quality anyway. When it comes to Mormon music, I'll stick with my MoTab and the hymns of Zion.

Triple D Divas Do Northern Utah

Last Saturday, the Triple D Divas met for a day trip get-away to Northern Utah - specifically Logan and Brigham City (with a little touch of Idee-ho thrown in for good measure). We started our journey with lunch at the Bluebird Cafe. Everyone knows about the Bluebird - it's about the oldest place on main street, and is tradition for anyone whose ever done a Logan Temple Trip. We went in to see the Logan Tabernacle, and I snapped this cool picture of the oragn pipes. (Of course, now that we're all in our 40's and have shrinking bladders, the Tabernacle also made for a clean and convenient potty stop.) ...Also a view of the Logan Temple spires from outside the Tabernacle...    From there, it was off to Glossner's Cheese Factory for some squeaky cheese. After that, we went to the Pepperidge Farms Outlet, and the girls all found some cookies and stuff.  But nothing really excited me there.  However, the outlet is located in
