This weekend was just perfect! Absolutely perfect. A wonderful weekend if you will.
It all started Saturday with my first Crossfit class. I came back home feeling great and excited about my fitness future.
Sunday morning Neal and I went to brunch at Founding Farmers after enjoying the morning with our puppy.
I love the concept and have never had a bad meal at Founding Farmers. I started my brunch with a big ol’ cup of french press coffee.
For brunch, I ordered the “Dragged Through the Garden” scramble with a side of leek hash browns and a biscuit. The scrambled egg whites were cooked with spinach, red onions, tomatoes, summer squash, and broccoli! It was awesome!
Neal ordered the Bananas Foster Stuffed French Toast which was so incredibly sweet and tasty. God love him and his ability to eat these things.
After brunch we ran a few errands and then headed over to spend the afternoon with our favorite kids. I think I’ve shared this with y’all before but I have known this family and their kids for 5 years now. I began babysitting for them when their youngest of 4 was just a newborn. It’s so hard to believe that they are now 13, 10, 8, and 5. Having them in our wedding was just so special and this was our first time seeing them since the wedding.
On the agenda for the afternoon was a showing of the movie The Lorax, lots of popcorn, and playing school. Why they wanted to play school two days before actual school started, I have no idea. Still, it was an amazing afternoon with our kiddos.
Afterwards we headed home to be with our pup and to enjoy an evening at home. When we arrived, we came home to one exhausted puppy. Playing all day is rough y’all.
Now one thing I’ve been wrestling with for the past three weeks is needing to get my hair done (haircut and color). Since returning from our honeymoon, Neal and I have been working hard to save money, so spending $150 to get a hair cut and highlights is just killing me.
After a few weeks of going back and forth, I decided last night to try dying my own roots ($9.99 y’all). I first went to CVS and looked at my options. I decided to use Loreal LB01 as it was close to what my highlights look like. **Please note, picking this color was a shot in the dark. I had no idea what I was doing or looking for. Amen for photos.
I did do a test strip on my roots and it looked ok, so I just went for it. I was pretty stinkin’ nervous for the whole 45 minutes but there was no turning back!
In the end, I was pretty pleased with the results. It’s a little more orange than I would have liked, but it blends in well with the rest of my hair.
I have a feeling I’ll be going back to my natural hair color here soon (light brown), but for now, I’m happy to continue being blonde!
Do you dye your hair? If so, do you do it yourself or do you get it done professionally?
