I just got home from over two hours at the hair salon getting my hair highlighted. I have not had it done since last June. She put two different blond colors over my own dark blond hair. Here is the top of my head (yes, I bent over under the hallway light so I could take a pic with no flash---anything to give my readers the true color!)
I am fairy happy, though not exactly giddy over it. If it made me look 20 years younger, I would be giddy. I know, even the best hairdresser is not a miracle worker!
Thursday I have to go to the dentist for my quarterly cleaning.
Thank goodness I got rid of the acrylic nails or I would have had to get those done this week, too. I did like the acrylics, but I did not like the time it took to maintain them.
I know some women love to go to salons to get all these treatments. Personally, I HATE to go. I would much rather leave work and come straight home than spend two hours getting my hair/nails done. I much prefer doing my own pedicures and manicures. I guess I am kinda weird.
Sunday I went to JC Penney. I had a $10 off anything that cost at least $10 coupon. Who can resist that? I did not take me long to find something to spend it on. They already had handbags marked down, I know I don't need another one, but when I saw a burnt ORANGE leather handbag, I just had to have it. I mean, really, how often do you see an orange leather purse? This one was originally $45, marked down to $21.99 and I got another $10 off --final cost was just under $13 for this beauty...
This is a picture I took of a few of my clothing items that I could use it with. Unfortunately I had to use a flash and the bag turned out way too orange. Just imagine it the color of the above pic......
After 12 hours of work and middle-aged maintenance, my newly coiffed self spent twenty minutes cooking chicken breasts so that I could enjoy this spinach/chicken/strawberry/pecan salad with poppy seed dressing for dinner. I am dining alone as I write this post.
Oh, and the brownies taste much better today. I have to force myself to stop at two.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday evening.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
