I have new hair. 
And I love it.

Two days ago, I posted this picture:
This is before.

Tuesday night, I went to my Grandma's and my cousin, who is in cosmetology school, cut my hair.
My grandma was taking pictures during the process.

My cousin was almost finished here.

Then she blow dried and styled it.

This definitely isn't the best picture, but it's the only one I have from that night.

I'm really happy with it.
Today, I'm letting it dry naturally so I can see what it looks like without straightening it.


Yesterday, Zach and I went and did a little photo shoot of each other.
I took pictures of him, and he took pictures of me. 

Here is a sneak peek:

Isn't he studly? ;)

You should come back tomorrow to see more photos from our shoot.

This is my hair now.
All natural.
Curly hair.
No makeup.

I guess you could say I have natural beauty.
And I believe I do, I just don't always see it.

Anyways, not the point of this post.
The point is that I will not have this hair tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will have...

....well, you'll just have to wait.

Tonight, my cousin is going to cut my hair for me.
And you'll have to come back in the next couple of days to see what it looks like. ;)

I've seen a lot of bloggers talk about their blog dates, or blates if you will, and I think it would be great to be able to do that.

One problem.

I don't know any blogger here in Ohio, except 3 lovely ladies that introduced me to blogging.

I would love to meet bloggers close to home, but I don't know how to go about finding them.
I don't want to go stalking blogs to find Ohioans.
Any suggestions?

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

May I...

...introduce you to my lovely sister.

Her name is Faith.
She is a blogger.
You can check her out here.

She is:
-21 years old.
-A writer.

Her blog is a random assortment of different things about life.
You should check her out!

Since I've gotten an iPhone, I've downloaded lots of apps, including Instagram. And I love it. If you can't tell by the amount of pictures I posted. 
Enjoy my dump! 
Oh! And you can follow me @jjessicar or here. :)

Kings Island

Remember last week when I went to Kings Island with my family and I promised a post about it?
Well here it is!

It was all organized on Monday night.
My stepbrother Chad was in town last weekend for his son's high school graduation.
He and his family stopped by my mom's house and they mentioned they were taking my brother to Kings Island.
I mentioned that I had the day off on Tuesday and Chad said I could join them. 
It was an open invitation.

So Tuesday morning, I get ready and get to my mom's house, since that's where we were meeting, and we get on the road. It's only about 45 minute drive, so we were there at 11am.

I was so excited when we got there.
I haven't been there in a few years, and my nieces were so excited to ride roller coasters.
I am a HUGE roller coaster rider, and Zach is not.

So of course our first ride was the Delirium.

It's a circular ride that spins and swings.

After waiting in line for 30+ minutes, Chad decided to get us all the fast track passes.
We were all able to cut the line on a lot of the roller coasters and it was great.

With the fast track passes, we rode most of the coasters at least once, if not twice.

I don't have many pictures of the day but this is what I do have.

Before the ride started I got a picture of mine and Della's reflection.

We stayed until they closed and watched the nightly fireworks.

I had so much fun with Chad and the family that day.
I usually don't get to spend time with him besides a few hours when he visits so it was really nice to catch up and talk about life, and he said it was great that I was able to join them.
