Blaine and I have decided that we need a vacation. It's so ironic, because every time we wanted a vacation in Arizona, we thought of California. Who doesn't? California is definitely good for short, mood-altering vacations, but we want a big vacation. We have talked about traveling and have decided that we want to do as much as we can before we settle down... if we ever do! We're so rambunctious and want to see so many things! We want to go to Japan, London and Canada. Getting into Canada will be a breeze, seeing as I am from there. We actually plan on moving there one day. Blaine has never been to Canada, but wants to go. It's so different there, yet so much the same. If you go to a place like Nova Scotia, you just never want to leave. It's so gorgeous there... Oh how I wish I were there right now. We haven't really decided where we are going to go first, but we're working on it. In the meantime, we're just going to stick to little weekend getaways to the beach and Universal Studios (season passes!)

I just found out some not so great news. I guess my Dad was having some chest pains and numbness in his chest today. He called 911 because he couldn't breath. The paramedics came and said his vitals were looking ok, but they wanted to take him to the hospital to check blood, x-rays, etc. My Dad got to the hospital and was joined by the family, except for me unfortunately, I am out in Cali. =( As soon as I got out of school, I answered all of the messages that were waiting for me... 'pops is in the hospital, having heart problems.' When I called him, he seemed like he felt better, in fact, he told me so. They put him on some heavy meds as he awaited the results of all the testing he had done. It turns out, he had a mild heart attack. They want to keep him overnight to ensure that he doesn't have another one. It's just so scary, my Dad is going to be 57 in July, but is a pretty healthy man. He is doing well now, but I am just on pins and needles. I hate that I can't be there and I also hate that if something were to happen (God forbid), then I would be out here in California. Even if I jumped on a plane, what if it were soon enough? I'm just hoping and praying everything turns out ok in the end. As I said earlier, as of right now, he is doing well. We will have to wait and see if anything else arises from this.

So, the topic last week at school, was bald caps. We learned how to make them and apply them. We started the week out by making latex bald caps. We then learned how to apply them onto our models. After that, we learned how to apply plastic bald caps. Plastic bald caps are much easier, seeing as the sides don't tear and they don't get holes in them. On Friday, I had my final for bald cap week. I had to take a written test as well as a practical... yet I didn't have a model. We usually use each other in class as models, but there were 2 girls absent meaning my partner was not there. We were scrambling around trying to find someone, but to no avail. I decided to call Blaine, who was at work. I asked him if he could come down to be my model, to save me from receiving an Incomplete or having to retake it at the end of the course, which by then... I probably will forget how to do it. Blaine talked to his manager and he was kind enough to let him come out to Hollywood from Calabasas to help me with school.

So Blaine and I just got done grocery shopping. We went to Fresh and Easy, which is our favorite place. They have a lot of really interesting recipes and already made meats. For example we bought pork chops stuffed with apples and cinnamon. We were hesitant, but figured we would try something new. I'm going to make a new recipe that I found online. It's chicken breasts stuffed with feta cheese and you pour marinara sauce over it once it's cooked. Right now, Blaine is making us Hawaiian Haystacks. It's a recipe that his mom has used for ages. It's white rice with cream of chicken poured over it. On top of that, you put mexican cheese over it, add pineapple and crunchy noodles on top. You can also add chives and onions too, which makes it really good. I took some pictures of Blaine cooking tonight. =)

Also in dealing with hair, we create different looks using only cream makeups. Mostly things like 5 o'clock shadow and next when we do bald caps, we can use cream makeups to make them look like a shaved head. Anyway, Blaine was nice enough to let me practice, so below are a couple of pictures of his 5 o'clock shadow I did using only cream makeups.
