A randomly dreary Tuesday.

Not only is it Talk To Us Tuesday with Impulsive Addict and Shawn, it is also Random Tuesday with Stacy Uncorked.

Let’s hit up both on this cloudy, rainy Tuesday, shall we.



  • The hair cut finally happened on Saturday morning, and you have no idea how necessary it was.  I’ve been feeling so much lighter and summery, and not just hair-wise, if that makes any sense.  Just what I needed to help pull me out of this current little rut I’ve been in.  Some of you were sweethearts asked me to show it off, so here it is:

This was shortly after the cut…I can’t make it look that good, but I still like it



These were taken yesterday.  My straightening techniques suck.  Slightly fluffier than I’d like it, but oh well.

  • My mom says it makes my face look rounder (which is code for “fat”).  I say it makes my neck look skinnier.   You win some, you lose some.
  • You know what else can boost my mood quickly?  A little on-line shopping.  I’ve been struggling with my summer wardrobe.  Things that used to fit don’t anymore.  Things that do fit are old.  I couldn’t remember the last time I bought new clothes.  So yesterday, I went on the Old Navy website and ordered a whole bunch of summery selections.  I hope at least some of it fits, because nothing can kill a mood any more quickly than tight clothes that need to be returned…*sigh*
  • I have a new favourite song.  Can you say OBSESSED??  I love it.  Can’t get enough.  Listen to it three or four times a day.  Adam Levine makes me weak at the knees.

  • Father’s Day was another one of those “firsts” I was dreading.   It turned out to be a not-so-bad day.  After church, we went out for breakfast and then on to the cemetery.  Then Mom & I hung out at home, reading and relaxing, enjoying the sun.  I just had to think of Dad scowling anytime he was the centre of attention, and it made the day easier.  We had Mae’s for supper, and when I went down to pick up our order, I found a penny lying on the picnic table.  My mom finds pennies all over the place, but I hardly ever find any…I think Dad meant that one just for me. :)
  • I’m still reading Fifty Shades.  I’m dragging the third book, Fifty Shades Freed, out as long as I can.  I know I’ve said it before, but I seriously don’t know what I’m going to do when I don’t have Christian anymore…  I guess I’ll just have to keep watching The Vampire Diaries over and over, envisioning Mr. Somerhalder as the delicious Mr. Grey.

  • Baby Time is getting closer and closer!!  There was a mixed shower for Luke & Amanda on Saturday at her parents’ place, and it was the perfect way to spend an afternoon – Texas Horseshoes for the boys, lawn chairs and beverages for the ladies, BBQ’d burgers, dogs, and salads for supper, and a new stroller & car seat for the parents-to-be!  I think Amanda’s really ready for this…

  • Let’s hope Luke & Amanda’s baby is as cuddly as their giant horse of a dog.  Poor Yzerman thinks he’s a lap-dog.  Just looking at these pictures crack me up, remembering how hard he tried to sit on Lynn and lie on top of Meghan!!!

Happy Tuesday, gang :)

Love the hair! And I know exactly what you mean about clothes not fitting. I hate going and trying on new clothes too!

Stacie said...

The hair looks great and I'll cross my fingers that the clothes work out. I loathe clothes shopping!

Connie Weiss said...

Your hair looks GREAT!

And I want to cuddle that dog so badly.

Nadine Hightower said...

love the hair! play with it!! Use a root booster to lift it up... you could do many things with it. I would curl up for a flip. But that's me. I have stick straight hair and I like mine with some curl.

Steph said...

Your hair looks great!

Yay for doing a bit of online shopping! I just keep hoping I lose weight and fit back into my clothes.

Impulsive Addict said...

Your hair is ADORABLE! It's very cute! Short hair makes everyone thinner. Tell your mom that. She is mistaken. I have long hair and I should really consider going short but M likes it long so I always just leave it the same. =(

OH NO! I love Maroon Five but I do NOT like Payphone. I don't know why either. Something must be wrong with me.

I can't wait to hear who gets to play Christian Grey. There's LOTS of speculation!

Jo said...

Hair is looking great! I hate shopping for clothes ... shoes on the other hand always fit :)
One of our boxers, Duke also thinks that he is a lapdog ...

Date Girl said...

Love the new haircut! I bet you feel so light and not having anything hot on your neck must be amazing.

I'm sure this first Father's Day was tough. Hugs. I'm glad you were able to spend it with your mom. I love that you had one of those little signs that could only be from beyond. :-)

Beth said...

The hair is adorable!! :D

Here's a quick fix for the "makes the face look fat" thing (my mom and I went through that argument, too): when you dry your hair after a shower, do it upside down and spray a light misting of medium-hold hairspray to the roots. Let it dry or blowdry it, upside down, to encourage that at-the-roots body. It makes for a subtle, light fluff and will take the emphasis off your cheeks and put it on your eyes. :D

Stacy Uncorked said...

Oooh! I love the new 'do! So cute!!

Oh yeah, online shopping always boosts my mood, too - except when I order something uber cute that doesn't fit and has to be returned.

LOVE LOVE LOVE that Maroon 5 song, too!

Glad you made it through another 'first' on Father's Day - and how cool to find the penny! :)

I just got the Fifty Shades books - haven't started reading them yet, but I'll get to it. ;)

That dog cracks me up! I love it when a big dog thinks of himself as a lap dog. :)

Summer Heat, Christmas in June, Misspelled Fun, and 20 Mules
