Happy, happy Friday! I don’t know about you guys, but I.am.psyched. I have a couple fun things on the agenda for this weekend, but I’m also just really looking forward to a little relaxing and hopefully getting some work done around the house. T minus six hours to go!
So if you follow me on Twitter, then you may have seen the tweet last night about my hair…
One of the girls at the shop had seen a photo in a magazine of an up-do on someone and wanted to “play around” to see if she could recreate it. Lucky for me, I have long hair so she decided to use me as her guinea pig.
Now, if you know me at all, then you would already know that this is 110% A-okay with me. I could sit for hours on end and let someone play with my hair. It is probably one of the most relaxing experiences for me. I love it!
Quite a few of you requested to see some pics from the up-do, so here ya go.
Pretty cool, right? Unfortunately, the only place I was headed once I left work was straight home, so I didn’t get much of a chance to show off the new “do.” But ehh, no big deal…it didn’t really go with the outfit anyways.
Once Jay got to see the latest style (this is probably my fourth time coming home with something new to show him) it was time to deconstruct it…
The amount of bobby pins in that mane was impressive.
Searching to try and find them all actually reminded me of when I was in high school and would have an up-do after a dance or prom. Once the dance was over and we were at whatever after-party location, all of the girls would sit together and take out all of the bobby pins, and would sometimes even compare to see who had the most. That definitely brought me back…I still can’t believe that was almost 10 years ago. Man, I’m getting OLD.
It’s amazing, really, what a day of rest can do for the body. After taking yesterday off, I felt much more energized and ready to take on today’s mish-mash:
- 15 mins HIIT (1min @ 6.5mph / 1min @ 8.0mph)
- 6 Pack Ab Burn Video (14 mins)
- 10lb. Slimdown Yoga (22 mins)
I loved being able to incorporate a little of everything today and it felt great!
Another breakfast conundrum ensued this morning. I wanted another English muffin. I wanted eggs. I wanted oatmeal. Finally, I decided on the eggs AND the English muffin.
(Along with the raspberry jam, of course.)
And the coffee.
BUT, I also prepped up some pumpkin oats to bring with me today for lunch, so it was a win-win situation.
Along with a small package of Cocoa Goodness Love Grown Foods granola. This stuff is gonna be good.
Let’s hope that today goes by quickly!
Questions for the Morning:
