The past few days have been simply fantastic!!!!
Clearly, I got a hair cut!!! I freaking love love love it. How much did I love it this morning when I rolled out of bed, put some phomollient in my hair and ran out the door in less than 4 minutes?! It was great.
I'm not going to lie, I *needed* this hair cut. I try to keep my blog happy and fun but the truth is, my self confidence is in the dumps. I'm losing weight but I also gain weight, it feels like its a giant battle. I have so many things going on and sometimes I work and work and work and don't really take the time to take care of myself. My goal was once I lost another ten lbs I was going to treat myself to a haircut, but you know what? Cutting my hair took 10 lbs off, lol, and it made me feel GOOD about myself again. I was dressed very casual today, jeans and a sweatshirt and I could just feel CUTE. That's an awesome feeling. I needed to just realize that I'm pretty rad, no matter what the scale tells me. I'm still working to get there. But its happening.
I got my cut here in Eureka, at Juniper! I seriously can't say enough positive things about my experience there. Hello head and scalp massage. Hello yummy smelling products. Hello EXTREMELY friendly staff!!!! It was great. I got to meet the sweet ladies, look at a gorgeous 30s-40s quilt, chat about sewing and it was just AWESOME. The owner of the salon cut my hair and holy smokes, she knew her stuff, I mean, I woke up this morning with bed head and it STILL was SUPER CUTE. How is that even possible? I don't know!!!! <3 her and <3 my hair. I wore it down all day. Thats like, a record. Normally my hair is up in a pony tail, but its so light now...its fantastic!
Quilting today was fantastic as always. I freaking love those ladies. They are *so* supportive of each other and its a really really great time. They cheer you on and bitch with you when something goes wrong, its perfect! I made my mom a birdie sling for her birthday! Next weekend I'm going to Pieceful Weekend, you can read a little bit about it on BrendaLou's Blog. I'm so excited, my goal of the weekend, since I'm going to be in the car.so.so.so.long is to make more hexs!!
I bought a charm pack of Moda's Sweet and a pack of 2 inch hexs!
I'm going to try to make hexes out of each charm on the drive, then buy a second pack of Swell because I think both lines go so cute together, and make a hand sewn/quilted throw out of them! Sweet! Progress on my color/fussy cut project continues....
Here they are!!! Aren't they cute?!?!? I sat on Aric's couch last night and worked on them while he explained tumblr to me (still don't get it) and we looked at flickr. I looked at an old friends photostream and I miss her so so so much :( Sad Story. Then we went out to Japanese food! Holy Soy Intake!!! I ate a piece of sushi! I actually liked it, he popped out the raw cucumber for me, it was something spicy with fish eggs. I ate the most incredible brown rice of my LIFE. And Aric knew the waitress and she brought me more and it was just FANTASTIC!!!! It was nutty and had the most amazing texture. I <3 brown rice. Then we shared mochi icecream balls? Or something? Red bean = amazing. Green tea = bath and body words. Aric thought it tasted like nag champa.
Tomorrow I'm going to get up super early and finish two pads and get all my orders in the mail. I've requested a carrier pick up THREE days in a row now and they haven't come! It's so weird because my mail man is totally always on his A Game and is just amazing. Now I have to void the labels and reprint in the am. Then we are picking up Aric and heading to Redding!
I'll be internet less until Monday!!!! I most likely won't be replying to any more emails from now until Monday, just so I can get stuff packed, ready to go and whatnot :) Have a simply fantastic weekend, passover and easter!!!! xoxoxo
