The second option for title post is “The Time My Oven Exploded”. Its true. About a month ago we were getting ready to eat lunch and all I had left to do was heat something up in the oven. I am kind of new to a gas oven. I love having a gas stovetop, I loathe the gas oven. As I opened the oven I thought “what is that awful smell?” then, brilliantly, decided to go ahead and try to light it anway. There was a small gas leak. That was the smell ( in case you’re wondering- the additive they use here for gas isn’t the same, so it didn’t smell like what I think gas should smell like…) and before I could even react *BOOM*! I saw a huge flash, then smelled burning hair…lots of burning hair. Once we got all the flames under control and established that it was only hair that had been burned we all took a deep breath. I asked “how is it?!” and Drew answered “maybe you should go shower…”. “Its only hair.”, I kept telling myself while I tried to cut and trim and make my burned mess look cute. And you know what? It is only hair, and about a month later I am thankful to have been forced into a new haircut (I haven’t had bangs since the second grade…).

So there is a “glimpse” into my life. Trying to figure out what’s normal, nothing going how I’ve planned, but thankful for the surprises along the way!

  1. Kirstin,

    I love reading about your weekly glimpses in the Middle East. I’m particularly curious because my husband is considering a job opportunity in Dubai. If you wouldn’t mind, I’d love to ask a few specific questions and hear a few more details of your experiences. Thanks. You can contact me at camillepiano at hotmail dot com. I look forward to reading more of your posts, I’ve been a kojo fan for a long time… And my favorite project was the canvas wall map my husband and I made. Camille

    1. Hey Camille! So glad you left a note- since Jordan is the one living in the middleeast, I sent your info over to her. I’m sure she’d love to chat with you! Also, I am a little jealous that you might move to Dubai!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love Drew’s response most of all- “It’s just hair”. I got a hair cut from a little place across from campus with Lorilyn and it was…. bad. When I walked into the dorm about five girls all at once sighed and “aww”d and I think an “Oh sweetie” was thrown in.

    Yep. Been at bad and back again.

    And he’s right.. it’s just hair. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love hearing updates. Is it ever as we think it will be? Glad you didn’t blow up.

  3. Ok. Now I feel silly.. Sorry I got you two confused… In my defense, you look a lot alike with beautiful brown hair. Thanks for sending my email along to Jordan… Hope to hear from her soon.

    1. Haha- it’s not just the hair, we look alike in general. And I wouldn’t be able to keep it straight either! ๐Ÿ™‚
