Meteorology Heaven

This week I've been like a fat kid in a candy shop.  We've had weather drama and that is so dang exciting to me.  Tuesday afternoon I did something I never do.  Never ever.  I poured a bowl of BBQ chips (well, I do that part sometimes), opened a can of DP (OK, I do this part too somedays), but the next part is something that I ever do.  I sat down to watch TV.  In the middle of the afternoon.  We do not have cable.  We're in our 11th year of marriage and have never once had cable TV.  In our first year of marriage we did not even have a TV in the living room.  We wanted to spend our first year of marriage hanging out, playing games and having friends over.  That filtered into every year after.  Now we have that converter box and get about 5 channels including the important ones.  When I did have cable I was a Weather Channel freak.  I love the weather channel.  Anytime there is weather drama I could watch for hours and hours.  I even like the instrumental music when it tells your local weather.
I found a weathery channel on TV, ate my chips and drank my DP.  The weather was on it's way and words like Epic Snow were being thrown around.  Seriously, I was exploding with excitement.  It was 5 Live Dopplar Heaven I tell ya.
Sure enough, yesterday we woke up and the show had begun.  We decided to run to the church library and check out some movies, 11 to be exact.  We got the Love Come Softly series.  The only one we didn't have was number 5 in the series and apparantly in movie number 5 Willy died and Missie found her another man and adopted a couple cute kids.  Seriously, is there anything better on a snow day than holing up, eating good food and watching movies?
Did I tell you I put the hack on my hair?  It feels so good.  The older I get the more I am convinced about following your instincts when they are telling you to try another make-up color, hair style, or to buy a certain shirt or outfit...even in decorating choices.  The very first thing your eye is drawn to is what you need to go with.  I've been wanting to go this short for a long time.  Tuesday I did it and it feels so good.
OK so there is one piece out of place in the picture the wind was blowing and please pardon the sunglasses.  I didn't put on make-up yesterday so I couldn't blow my cover.  You'd have been saying, "Girl, are you sick?" No, I just left my mascara in the tube today.
We came in from playing in the snow and me and the baby crawled up on the couch and napped together by the fireplace.  We watched sappy romances all day.  Had a yummy dinner together.  Put the kids to bed and made a pot of Dunkin Donuts Coffee (thanks Mom & Dad!) and watched more movies last night.

Hip Hip Hooray for Snow Days!

I love love love the new hair. I am a personal fan of short hair. So much so, in fact, that I have not been able to grow mine past my shoulders in YEARS. I've been wanting to grow mine out just to see if I can pull it off. The last time it was long, I was in high school and it had NO STYLE. So, maybe I should pursue it??? I've got some waves to help out...hmmm, you've got me thinkin'. And while I'm at it, can I just say that you are hysterical over the weather channel! Ha! I'm just as bad though. I check the Weather Channel app on my phone multiple times a day, and at least 15 times a day when we're getting snow!

The hair looks awesome! It gives you the vivaciousness (I don't know if that's a word) on the outside that you have on the inside. You are right about following your instincts. As a hairstylist, my motto is, "it's just hair, it'll grow back." When you take the risk and it turns out that awesome, it's that much better. :)

I mean REALLY! If I didn't already have short hair, it would totally make me want to chop mine off. Woohoo!
