For now, I have a story about something that has nothing to do with our house. It has to do with my hair.
Less than a month after we got married, I donated my hair to Locks of Love. I ended up with a super-short pixie cut - something that I had always wanted to try. And despite the fact that not everyone loves it (*cough* hi mom *cough*), I really, really do. It's so fun! And easy! It takes approximately 30 seconds to fix. That's including washing it! I've actually gotten it cut twice: once in October, and then again in December, right before Christmas. I wanted to look good for the holidays!
|This is right after my December cut.|
Also, my salon lets me get "fringe trims" (in between trims that keep a haircut looking fresh - for some women, that's trimming the bangs; for me, it's around my neck so I don't grow a mullet) for free! I still tip, but I have now had three or four fringe trims and didn't pay the salon a dime. Nice, right? So I've been doing that every four weeks since December.
The problem is, now I'm getting the itch to cut it again. It's just starting to get awkward -
- and it's getting harder and harder to wait it out.
And that brings us to the end of this really self-absorbed blog post. So, reader
Finally, just to keep the house-themed blog still going, here's a shot of our new buffet. We're still talking about what to do with it (stain it? paint it?), but for now, we're enjoying it as-is. We bought it at this great used furniture store downtown - a place we will be visiting again and again, I'm sure.
