I just love the outcome of my salon visit. I was nervous about it because I decided to try a new salon, as the one I was previously going to no longer employed the amazing Danielle, so a change was not only necessary to my hair, but also to my hair stylist! I took a leap of faith, and it definitely paid off! The color t technician did a fabulous job! The picture above makes it look like my hair is black, but it's not; don't worry! It's a dark brown, and it will lighten (already has) in the next few washes, which is always true after getting my hair colored. That technician made me feel super comfortable and right at home. I also have her information so I know who to go back to when I'm ready! She also cuts hair, but she had to leave to pick up her children, which was totally fine. She took the extra time and effort to be sure that I was in the hands of another great stylist for my cut - she brought me water, a warm towel, magazines...she was amazing! The new stylist was amazing as well! She layered my hair like I've been wanting for a WHILE but could never quite get across to other stylists...it's dramatic and I love it! Money well spent, and it was much cheaper than my old salon! A win-win all the way around!
Since we were in the mall, husband decided to browse around for a bit. He's always going the extra mile to get/buy me things that he knows will make me happy....'just because'. It's so awesome! When we first started dating, I had to MAKE him tone it down, as he was going wayyy above and beyond the call of duty as a boyfriend. I didn't need expensive, extravagant things to be happy...and he finally understands that with me, it's all about the little things! Aaaaannnndddd....sometimes it's about the bigger things ;). Hey, I'm a girl and I like me some pampering every now and again! He bought me a new build-a-bear (as he put it, because we all have a little kid inside of us). It was super sweet and romantic. I love it.
Saturday I decided to support my cousin in her dance competition that wasn't too far away. She had made the team this year and they were performing four numbers! I love watching dance, and I used to dance in my high school days, so I was all set. Their age group was from 11:00 to about 2:30pm. By that time, I was more than ready to go, and Kyra and I were STARVING! We were sure to capture our starving-ness faces:
