Catching Up...


I feel like I’m playing a lot of “catch up” lately. Especially on here - I just haven’t had anything worth writing a full post about... Maybe it’s writer’s block...

So to catch up...


- I chopped my hair off.
Well - my hair stylist did anyway... This is my second time donating my hair to Locks of Love. Last time I did 15 inches, this time it was only 11. It’s weird going from so long to so short, but I actually really like how it turned out. I can still put it in a pony tail (muy importante), so I am very happy about that...

This was still attached to my head last Saturday morning...

I always forget to take a picture until I’m at work... My brain is still half-asleep until then... haha

I’ve gotten tons of compliments on it. J prefers long hair, but there’s not much he can do about it... What’s he going to do - try to tell me that I can’t cut my hair? He knows that would just have me coming home with a pixie cut...

And plus - “You can’t give your hair to those poor little children with cancer because I like it when it’s long” would be kind of a dick move, right? Right.


- I went to the Long Beach Grand Prix.
We go every year and bring my best friend and her husband. It’s always a fun day... Luckily it wasn’t too hot - I am definitely NOT a hot weather person in any way.

 Getting this picture took 4 tries of “Ok, I hear the cars coming - hit the button NOW and they’ll be here by the time my cell phone actually takes the picture!”

This is the sound that you hear all day....

We were enjoying ice cream in the hospitality booth... These TV’s have pretty impressive surround sound... Or the cars are actually driving by.... One of the two... hahaha


- I found a sports bra that I love.
Ok, this may not seem like such a big deal, but when you have DD’s... It seriously is. I usually have to wear two of them in order to keep the “girls” in check, but this one is magical. It’s the Maia Bra by Moving Comfort. It works like a charm. I already ordered more in different colors....


- Finally got Froyo for my phone!
Only FOREVER after it was originally promised... And after watching every other Galaxy S get it before Verizon... And now that I have it? It doesn’t really seem all the special... haha This is why I didn’t root my phone like my friend kept telling me to. I didn’t think there could possibly be anything so special that it was worth possibly voiding my warranty... And I was totally right.


- I ordered (and received) Rice Krispy Treat Cereal!!
This was one of my favorite cereals as a kid and it disappeared... I reminisce about it every time we are at the grocery store in the cereal section... One of my friends suggested checking Amazon because they were able to find a beloved childhood cereal of theirs on there. Sure enough - they had it. Because Amazon has everything...

I had a bowl of it for dinner two nights this week... I would have had it a third, but J was giving me weird looks when I was reaching for the bowls again... I think he was worried about me getting vegetables and silly things like that... But I am definitely having a big bowl for breakfast on Saturday!!

My mouth was so happy while eating this.... It tastes exactly like I remembered...

 Fred wanted to make sure I couldn’t possibly forget that he wanted the cereal milk when I was done eating... He was laying on my shoulder, staring at me the whole time...


- I purchased the newest Harry Potter movie.
I have them all, so not really a surprise... I haven’t had a chance to watch it again yet, but I plan on doing that very soon. I also want to put the digital copy on my phone...

I am always confused as to why the sell box sets that aren’t complete yet... I know the simple answer is “because people buy them,” but it still bothers me... Just sell one fancy box set once the 8th movie is out and be done with it... And make even more money on it by selling an ultra-fancy one that comes in a tiny chest like the ones the kids pack their school stuff in and include some of the main character’s wands... I would even consider buying that....


- I am still seriously in love with my Kindle.
My book reading pace has definitely slowed down since the beginning of the year... (Check out the list above - I read SEVEN books in January... Sure they were all short brain-candy, but still...) I’m loving being able to read some of the series that I had never really gotten into because I didn’t have any more room on my bookshelves for them...


- I love the Amazon App Store.
Mostly because they give away one paid app for free every day... Some days it isn’t something I want, but I have gotten several that I’m having a lot of fun with...


- I love Honey Girl Organics skin stuff...
Found out about it from another blogger’s review and purchased it based on her recommendation. I love it. It makes my skin so soft and it looks better and healthier every day. LOVE it.


Other than that...... Not really much going on... Next week I am taking a couple days off because I am really close to my max on vacation time accrual. Gotta use it or lose it! I’m planning on sleeping. A lot. Haha And catching up on stuff in my DVR...

What have you been up to?

  2. Your hair looks awesome! I totally know what you mean about the DDs and a good sports bra. I will have to keep looking. I have to wear two at a time. I want a Kindle so bad. And I am totally jealous! I love the new Harry Potter movie. It's hard to get through a writers block. I feel like I go through them once a week. LOL
