i'm sitting here enjoying a delicious, husband-prepared cup of coffee
and an equally delicious, me-prepared open-faced goat cheese and tomato on sourdough sandwich
looking at these flowers
|sometimes a girl's just gotta buy herself some flowers.|
(i have no pictures of the pizza. but trust me, it was delish.)

a few comments:
#1 note the amount of clothing i am wearing. after these pictures, i added a scarf and a leather jacket. and was still freezing. my friends, this should not be. April is for spring, and flowers, and maybe some showers. but, by God, not 40-degree weather.
#2 the hair is my attempt at this:
|[via Cup of Jo]|
and even if you could, my dye job is more 5.0+5.53+level 10 developer
and less balayage.
so it wouldn't show up so good.
#3 speaking of.
i'm contemplating a little balayage myself.
ya know, for the summer.
i tend to dye my hair right before major events in my life...
(i like to live riiight on the edge)
cut to the day before we left for Italy to get married
i got some highlights...which i was told were necessary to "brighten me up"
word of advice: when someone says they're loving that PEANUT BUTTER color they just put on your hair, get up. get out of the chair. and walk away.
peanut butter belongs on a sandwich.
not your head.
anyway. crisis averted.
i dyed it right back to my "natural" color
(which is a dark, warm chestnut color that i've conjured up over the years (: )
so now i'm contemplating balayage
i did it once a few years ago.
i basically took a picture of Carrie Bradshaw circa Season 6
to my hairdresser...
|me&jo. we were really close|
(pipe down. that's not a real kiss. you can even see the thumb.)
...and said "do this."
i think that picture is even what the end result was.
anyway. i loved it.
and graduation is coming up...another big life event.
so why not?
to dye? or...not to dye...
