The Sun Came Out! (Last Month)

I sound like a broken record but when the sun comes out, I feel like it has to documented, noted (is that the same as documenting?) and photographed. (I am SO sorry for those of you in the 107 heat! Here I am complaining about our lack of sun. I am so insensitive! Why must it be 107? Why must it be grey here even in the summer? Why weather, why?) I would like to point out that I took these pix over a month ago. Last time we really saw the sun.

So I snapped some picsies (picsies! not to be confused with pixies! I'm so sorry....) of my glowy girl and just for jollies (someone please help me), threw one in of me. Random thoughts of the day: holy Batman, what is going on with my hair color? I keep asking my colorist to keep me pretty dark, because my natural hair is pretty dark. And because I'm living in opposite land apparently, I keep coming out lighter. At this rate, I'll be blond soon. Andrew says I should just tell her to color it straight black and then it will come out a few shades lighter than that and it'll be the color I want. Why do I color? Because I refuse to go grey gracefully. (Actually I refuse to do most things gracefully...)

Maybe this blog could be about hair AND books. Because I'm really obsessed with both, as you can see. (I also have a Pinterest board devoted to hair.) 

On a less ridiculous note, I am just loving having my glowy girl at home with me. It's so fabulous being able to hug her a million times a day and kiss her a few more times than that, (she's probably getting tired of me hanging all over her) anytime I want! I don't have to wait 6 hours until school is out! There's been a lot of snuggle-festing going on around here. The snuggle-festing is winning over pouting and fussing. (I include myself as an all-too-willing participant in any and all pout festivals that occur around here. It happens.)

But anyway......Happy glowy day to you!

  1. she's lovely! I especially love the one of her next to the bookshelves. I will refuse to go gray gracefully as well, when that day comes--I've got it all planned out.... :)

    1. It's a bummer and a hassle -- I got my first grey when was 20....I think in 10 yrs I'll throw in the towel..:)

  2. Wonderful picsies! I think I almost melted in the heat yesterday. :( We're heading off to Disneyland on Sunday and my husband and I have a running joke about the weather there. I SWEAR TO YOU that the temperature rises at least 10 degrees when I arrive. And it's ALWAYS 15 degrees hotter than those awful weather people say it will be. I may have made complaining about the weather at Disneyland an Olympic sport (we go twice a year so I get plenty of training in). :)

    As to going gray, I read somewhere once (at least I think I did... there's no way I'm making this up... I swear!) that as we age we should go a little lighter in color rather than stay as dark as we were in our youth. It will keep us looking young and fresh apparently.

    1. oh yes yes I've always heard that too!! But I swear to you, when I get too light in color, I look washed out. Like someone erased the color from me! So weird.

      We cannot WAIT to go to D-land again, we've only been 1x!! But oh yes I can't imagine the summer time heat :(

  3. Well, first things first, we saw Brave! Baby didn't not sit thru or go out with G&G. But luckily it was sparse and loud so standing by the door with a crabby kid didn't bother the 4 people in the theatre who were not us. Ok, (I know, I know, I'm supposed to be working on my commenting problem, another day). Merida's hair is fantastic-- who wouldn't love red curly hair? Seriously, oh-- hair is actually on topic for this post, so let me go on. I have mousy brown hair (or golden blonde when I'm trying to be upbeat). The girl that used to cut my hair was like, "it's a really good base color" which is hair dresser speak for "you should really color it already!!!". But then you have to go back, frequently, which is not my strong suit.
    Oh, and everyone seems to have a hair pinboard, so you're right on trend I'd say :)

    1. Silly me, that should say golden BROWN when I'm upbeat.

    2. ha ha ha! base color! oh that's hilarious. I'm waiting for the day when we can all just pop an anti-grey pill and we won't have to deal with hair coloring. I know some people love getting their hair done, but I am not one of them, I hate it, but I am also lazy and inept, so I'm leery of doing it myself.

      Also, YES, Merida's HAIR in 'Brave' -- the movie is worth seeing JUST for her hair!

    1. Thank you Miss Leanne! It's actually a Very Large Shirt that is a wee bit too big for her :) Each yr, I buy one or two things from Mini Boden for her -- this was one of them!
