I dye my hair A LOT. It all started right after I graduated from high school and my sister dyed my hair a purplish/maroon/red color. Ever since then, I've been addicted. I'm especially partial to shades of red. I have found that I change my hair at different stages of my life; although, I don't know if it's because of the stage, or because I just love an excuse to change things up.
Anyway, tonight I dyed my hair. It was a failure. Notice how the two (before and after) photos are incredibly similar. It was supposed to be drastic. FAIL, FAIL, FAIL.
I am going to have to give up and find a professional to do something about this.
My next hair color is going to be this (or this):
Or maybe it won't be any of those. I never really know until I tell the hair stylist to whatever they want. I'm not too terribly picky with my hair.
We made these cute little ladybug picture frames for our Valentine's Day craft at work tonight.
I made these little bears for the ladies, since using a hot glue gun was necessary.
This photo is incredibly embarrassing, but I told the ladies that I would post it. The quality of the picture is terrible, but I'd like to see you try and keep massive plastic eyes on your face without jiggling the camera.
Tomorrow is our party at work for the residents. I'm so excited! I love holidays. I also love old people. Win, win!
Being single, I'm not thrilled about this upcoming holiday; however, I have at least one friend coming over on Monday. I have stuff to make cupcakes. I am thrilled. Anyway, my mother is a dear and sent me a beautiful Valentine's Day care package!
Contents include: a heart dish towel, heart socks, poppyseed cake, pumpkin bread, York mints, molasses cookies and popcorn. AMAZING. My mom is the greatest.
She also included some pictures from Christmas that we got done at Wal-Mart. I'm not thrilled about them, but they are decent. This was also before I started my diet, so I can actually notice a difference! It's a small one, but hey, it's something!
Finally, I adore cupcakes.
This particularly glorious cupcake has been brought to you by my friend and co-worker, Merissa. She is an incredible baker. This cupcake did a dance in my mouth and I liked it.
Here is the recipe:
Cinnamon Sugar Cupcakes:
1 box white cake mix- "I make this like the box says and add 1 t cinnamon and bake."
1 pkg cream cheese- room temperature
1 stick unsalted butter- room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
2 t cinnamon
Blend cream cheese and butter until smooth- add vanilla and cinnamon and mix well. Slowly add powdered sugar until desired sweetness and consistency!
Thank you, Merissa. You made my night so much more enjoyable.
That was a huge post.
Thanks for sticking with me.
I am going to St. Louis tomorrow with Anthony to see Interpol. I AM SO EXCITED. The band is good; Anthony is awesome. I will probably not be back to post anymore until Sunday, hence the lengthy post.
