All of the (Random) Things

Hello, hello! Yesterday we had a “snow” day, which can basically be summed up with this. We went from a forecast of 6-10 inches of snow, to about .79 inches of snow.

Blizzard 2013

Cool DC, cool. Whatevs, I’m not going to complain too much because my office was still closed and I got to to spend my Wednesday day drinking and painting all of the things with chalk board paint. I’m not kidding, if we didn’t rent our house I would have totally painted one of our walls.

My roommate Adrienne and I also painted some chalk labels on glass spice jars she bought. We’re super motivated when day drinking red wine. I also went on Amazon last night and ordered some chalk pens in tons of fun colors, because writing with regular chalk is annoying and not pretty.

Last weekend I was up in PA to take care of some wedding related things with my mom and sis, had to get my highlights re-done, and pick out wedding jewelry :). While at the hairdresser, in a moment of crazy, I decided to chop all of my hair off and immediately proceeded to have a nervous breakdown. I’m not joking, I think I almost passed out when I saw the long strands of hair on the salon floor, and now my hair looks like this.



It’s short, the shortest it’s been since around 2008, and definitely taking some time to get used to but I like it. As far as wedding jewelry goes, my mom is awesome sauce and bought my sis and I these necklaces to wear. Well my sister’s is a clear topaz stone, but this is mine.

want. now.

want. now.

I’m not allowed to have it until the wedding in April, and it’s so unfair, haha. Nothing else really new to report, same old crap different day. Happy Thursday!


Well, since I know you guys have all been anxiously waiting to see what I decided, unless you follow me on Twitter then you already know, but…

Bangs!  And a severely over-waxed right eyebrow that I didn’t notice until this morning and is now pissing me off.  I guess it’s a good thing I have bangs now to cover it up?  Hmm, I have some makeup in my gym bag, probably wouldn’t hurt to throw some on my face would it?  The rest of the hair is pretty much the same, threw in some more angles in the front and layers through the back to break it up a bit, but that’s it.  Still not sure how long the bangs will stick around for, but free trims at the hair salon are quite convenient.

Most of my day yesterday was occupied by pinning things on Pintrest, and falling in love with a future wedding venue for that wedding I’m not even planning yet because I’m not engaged yet.  It’s all Darren’s fault though, he never should have taken me ring shopping in August.  Now I just need to figure out a way to sell my soul to the devil so I can pay for said venue.  If you’re curious, this is it.

Both of those photos came from here.  Anyway, so yeah, I’m in love with a location on Lake Michigan that looks like it could actually be in Ireland.  Hey, any golfers in the fam, the PGA Championships was played here in 2010!

Anywho, so it’s January, and going to be almost 60 degrees today.  Um, dear winter I would like at least one big snow storm please.  Preferably not when I’m trying to fly to and from Wisconsin next month.  Please and thank you, Kelly.  Happy Friday betches.

Well, That Sucked

So yesterday was not a good day sports wise for me.  The Eagles lost, the Yankees lost, the Phillies lost… at least my fantasy team won?  It was a pathetic and frustrating showing all around, one that required pizza, a milkshake, and wine to get through.  Game 3 of the Yanks/Tigers series is tonight, here’s to hoping the Yankees bats come alive before the bottom of the 9th this time.  My heart can’t handle the stress.

Prior to the collapse of everyone I was cheering for yesterday, the weekend was pretty delightful.  Friday night a few friends came over and we sat out back around the chiminea roasting marshmallows and drinking.  Sweatshirts and Ugg boots were worn, and the heat from the fire was just enough to keep up warm in the quickly cooling temperatures.

Saturday morning I was up bright and early to get my hair done, and there was something seriously wrong with driving my route to work on a Saturday (hair salon is across the street).  Just got the exact same thing done as last time, dyed dark and had the side bangs trimmed much to Darren’s dismay. He doesn’t like them, at all.  Shockingly, it was raining, and once again our football game for the day was cancelled, which meant I spent the rest of the day and night on my couch watching sports.  I didn’t mind, at all.

I’m looking at a four-day work week ahead of me, so things could be worse.  One of my friends from home is getting married on Friday, so I’m off to PA on Thursday night.  The dress I’m wearing to the wedding has a lace back, so I’m getting my hair put up to show it off.  If anyone has any good websites of up-dos I could look at, I’d be very grateful as I have no idea what to do with my hair.  Gracias.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and your sports teams fared better than mine.  As long as they weren’t a team that beat one of mine.  Then, I hate you.
