long weekend, short update

Even though it was four days, I have surprisingly little to talk about from this weekend. So let's keep it short.

Haircut: I only cut my hair 2-3 times a year because I am cheap and have been growing it out. I am never happy with my stylist but since I have been using my friend Sara as a life coach and doing what she does, I asked who did her hair and went to see Jodie at Fringe Salon. Sara gave her some off-the-record insight into what I wanted before we met, which I thought was really helpful (basically she told her that I was tired of every stylist saying "Oh yeah, long layers works for you" and just doing that and offering nothing else.) Jodie was super nice and informative and I will definitely be back. I'm liking the changes she made.

Bye-bye fried ends, hello bangs, waves, and texture. I will never get it to look that way again...

Coltivare: This was our second trip (read about the first here) and it was definitely great. I was kind of "eh" on the restaurant after our first encounter but this trip redeemed it. I ate lots of things out of my comfort zone - broccoli, cauliflower, duck, and mussels - and mostly liked them all (the cauliflower was fantastic)! We also got to take advantage of the great weather (and good lighting for blog pics, which I am saving for a guest post) and sit on the patio. This is a place better suited for four or more people so who wants to join us next time?

Water: Kelli is encouraging us to take out our cameras and use them more often, and I really want to play along. However, I lack creativity. I remembered to snap this pic at dinner for this week's prompt: water. I will try to do better and use a real camera in future weeks but I am giving myself bonus points for remembering to participate!

"Houston's Finest" aka tap water, a candle, and the bucket of silverware. I'll try harder next week...

  3. Did you color your hair too? It looks really good! I think I'm going to try that stylist and salon. I've put off cutting my hair for almost 5 months now (I'm cheap, don't know who to go to, etc) but I think it's time for a trim! Thanks for the tip!

  5. I love your hair and that's why I hate getting my hair cut too, I need to find someone to recommend a local stylist!

    I saw that Coltivare posted under your IG of their cauliflower!

    I like your water picture, I think the way the wood from that door reflects through your glass is awesome!

  6. Oh, I really like the layers framing your face! She did a really good job! I'm glad your second trip redeemed that restaurant!

  7. Your hair looks awesome!!! Don't you hate how you can NEVER get your hair to look the same way the stylist does?! I felt the same way this weekend because my girl curled my hair and used a root lifter and all kinds of stuff and it looked awesome and full! Now? Back to flat and straight.

  10. Your water photo is much better than mine.

    Your hair looks great! I always tell my hair stylist to do whatever. That's her job, not mine. haha

  11. Love your hair! Finding a great stylist is key. I am lucky to have a great one that I have used for 7ish years now.

  12. Your hair looks so pretty! I used to cut mine every 6 or 8 weeks, then I got divorced and I'm broke so now I cut it about every 6 or 8 months lol. Long hair is better anyway:)

  13. Your hair looks great! I love the waves and the bangs, and it looks so shiny and healthy! Side note: I love making waves with my straightener...it's so much easier than a curling iron! I promise you can get it to look that way again! You can do it!

  21. I'm right there with you on the hair thing. Twice a year is good for me...I never like anyone enough to go back. Though I really need to do something with my hair, so maybe I'll have to check out the Fringe Salon! Your hair looks great!

  22. Side bangs are the best! Not too crazy, but a little bit different. Love the hair and can't wait to see it in person SOON!! :)

  23. I love your hair! I have the same struggle with stylists. I've never liked anybody I've seen.

I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
