Mid-April Things.


My hair.

Oh my hair. You see, my hair is naturally auburn, and I kept it that way until last summer, when I decided to use temporary BLACK dye on my precious locks. And well, the black dye loved my strands so much that it refused to entirely wash out. And so, I’ve spent the winter hoping that one day I’ll wake up and I’ll no longer have reddish roots with brown-y red hair. Unfortunately, not all dreams come true and has yet to happen. Two nights ago I had a complete hair meltdown, involving me crying to understanding friend, and you know when someone is trying to be helpful, but you are too crazy to see that? Yeah. Cause when she said ‘You’re hair doesn’t even look bad!’ I heard ‘Your hair is the worst hair on the face of the Earth.’ So last night I bought some more temporary dye, something called Pomegranate Crème that looked as though it might leave my hair looking reddish-gold-brown. And despite the dye frightening me as it was BRIGHT RED, and my understanding friend who kindly dyed it for me proclaiming ‘Woah, this is turning your scalp ORANGE!’, everything worked out. My hair isn’t as light as my natural colour, but it is closer, and it is definitely less root-ish than it has been in a while. $5 box dye win.


I. Leave. Tomorrow! I’m too excited to sleep. Or do anything besides talk about Sin City. I haven’t been on a real vacation since I went to California (Huntington Beach, Los Angeles, etc) for a week in July of 2008. I do fly a lot, and spend weekends in various Canadian cities with my team through the fall and winter, but I’m so stoked to board a plane with my best friends and head towards sunshine and alcohol. Feel free to leave any last minute tips in the comments!


The other day I had a Dairy Queen Blizzard for the first time since I stopped eating ice cream. It was delicious, until I was sick for two days. Verdict? Not worth it. There isn’t much ice cream in my future, apparently. In other food related news, I got kind of addicted to carrots, I guess? Basically, I was eating so many a day that I became sick. Not the skin turning orange sick, but the ‘you’re body can’t digest that much raw fiber (or something)‘ kind of sick where I had a constant stomach ache for a week, as I continued eating an insane amount of carrots not realizing what I was doing to myself. Carrots = Great in Moderation.



  1. Have fun in Vegas! I am just about to eat some carrots with hummus right now for an afternoon snack. It’s good to realize even healthy foods require moderation! Sorry the Blizzard made you sick. Between you and another fellow blogger (Tina from Carrots N Cake) having one in the past week, I may have to get one this spring!

  2. Have fun!!!

    I have the same hair dilemma – I dye my hair dark brown so I’ve got blonde-ish roots with dark brown hair right now. It’s a weird halo-y effect and it is not even remotely attractive. I’m counting on my $5 box of hair dye to fix it tonight 🙂

  3. thank goodness your hair (and your scalp) are okay and have so much fun in vegas!! one month til i’m there and i cannot wait, woo!

  4. Yay for all the fun things going on in your life! Well, except for the ice cream. I might cry if I couldn’t have ice cream…at least while I’m knocked up and all.

  5. I am pretty dang sure I told you that you needed to do a chocolate covered cherry type color. Didn’t I? I’m glad that you did. I sort of like you as a little red head!

    Hope you’re having so much fun in Vegas. I miss you! Maybe I will bbm you quickly just to say hi. 🙂

  6. Have so much fun in Vegas! You deserve it, love!

  7. Let us know what’s good in Vegas!!! I’ll be there in two weeks! 🙂

  8. If it makes you feel better, I always get a stomachache when I eat Dairy Queen ice cream. I think it’s their ice cream specifically that makes me sick. Kind of sad since I love the taste of it. Sigh.

    Hope you had a smashing time in Vegas 🙂 (Did I just use the word smashing!?)
