Dark, Like My Soul

So after two hours in the salon last night, I’m officially back to my brunette roots.  My stubborn highlights required an extra round of dye to cover up, so I got to go through the shampooing process twice.  Fine by me, everyone knows that’s the best part anyway.  I liked the highlights and stuff, but they always faded super quickly, leaving me with hair that was 10 different colors.  Back to dark brown it is!

Threw some side bangs in there to mix it up a bit.  And no, I do not have two black eyes, I’m just tired and don’t wear any makeup to work.  Ok, and now I promise no more pictures of just my face for a while, that shit is annoying.  I’m well aware.

Yesterday may have been the slowest day in the history of the world.  I’m betting I say the same thing tomorrow about today.  I had absolutely zero work to do all day, so I sat here twiddling my thumbs trying to find things to look at on the internet.  Damn you for blocking HULU!  Finally around 2, I managed to drag myself across the street for a workout.

Spartacus workout!  Two full circuits, upping to 12 lb weight for the Goblet Squat, lunge and twist, and bent over dumbbell rows.  Still using 10 lbs for the other exercises.  I followed it up with some abs, because really I just wanted an excuse to lay down.  The best part about working out until 3:15, was it only left me with an hour of work to get through after.  Hooray!

Since the hair took a little longer than expected, I didn’t end up getting home until about 7:30 (stopped at the store) at which point I collapsed on the couch with a glass of wine and a frozen pizza, and Mad Men.  Ha, if you are a fan of my Facebook page you know I was trying to avoid the booze until tomorrow night.  Well, I am a failure, I should have known that would never happen.  Also, if I’m being completely honest, I had a Skinny Girl Margarita on Monday night :/.  Sigh, maybe I need an intervention.  Jk, I really don’t.

Obviously since I have a 6 pm flight tomorrow night, I have not packed yet, at all.  I’m trying to decide if I can pack for a 4 day trip and wedding in a carry on size suitcase.  I’m also trying to decide if the suitcase we have is carry on size.  I suppose I could measure it, but that would take all the fun out of it.  Also, what does one bring to a wedding weekend at a lakeside resort in Wisconsin?  No, seriously.

Ok, I’m off.  Don’t tell me if you don’t like my hair.  I’m feeling sensitive today.

Hair Help

Heeeey it’s the last day of February, awesome, and it’s going to be 73 degrees today.  Apparently tornado warnings are also accompanying the warm temperatures, so it’s looking like an interesting day.  Did you miss my weekend posts?  I mostly talked a lot about shopping, but they’re still fun to catch up on.

Last night I made 5 lbs of the best mashed potatoes ever and considered that my cardio and weight training for the day.  Seriously, have you ever stood over a hot stove mashing and stirring 5 lbs of potatoes?  That’s hard work!  I also made my favorite comfort food meal ever, Shepherds Pie, and fed it to the roommates.  They were grateful to have dinner prepared for them, and I was just happy to have something to do.  Then I watched the Oscars.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to go in to what I thought of so and so’s dress, and who won what award, I’m pretty sure there are tons of other bloggers out there today doing that.  Go read their recaps, I just don’t care enough.  What I will say, is that Twitter makes watching award shows so much more fun.  First the Grammy’s now the Oscars, it’s fun to see everyone’s different opinions as the event happens.  Plus you can play drinking games with people!

So my trip is officially next week now, and you can rest assured that I will be obsessively checking the forecast for the next 10 days.  I can only see up until Wednesday at the moment, but Milwaukee’s weather is a high of 30 and snow showers and Chicago’s is a high of 37 with snow showers.  I have a feeling I’ll be packing some winter gear.  Unless a freak heat wave rolls in on Thursday for the weekend.  I really don’t care either way, just as long as there isn’t a blizzard and my flights aren’t delayed or cancelled.

I’m also getting my hair done next week, and I’m at the point where it’s frustrating me and chopping it off sounds very tempting.  I know I’ll regret that the next day if I do it though, but it’s just so, long.  I also can’t figure out what to do about color.  The box dye I used has pretty much faded, and I’m thinking about maybe just getting some auburn low lights with blonde highlights thrown in?  Here’s a picture I took yesterday, thoughts?

I’ll probably spend much of the next week looking for pictures of hair cuts and color I like.  Should make me pretty productive at work.  Alright, try to enjoy your Monday.
