…I’ve been a bit busy this week. I promise things are slowing down and I should be back to a regular posting schedule this week. I’ve been trying to stockpile some pictures and get a little ahead which, ironically, has left me a little behind this week but fear not! I’ll be back in full force this week.
Back to the reason you likely read our blog: I have this little gem my sister’s boyfriend took of me while we were doing her senior pictures this weekend!
I think I’ve finally hit the pinnacle of Hipster…long bags, a-line skirt, playing a uke in an ally while the sun’s setting behind me while I look dramatically off to the yonder. Yep, I’m pretty sure I’m quickly becoming Zooey Deschanel Jr. I’m also completely in love with it and I am ready to fully embrace all that is this part of my personality (so you should totally expect to be seeing more of this kind of thing because now that I have a big girl paycheck I can afford some rad new duds).
I guess all I have to say, hipsterness aside, is “to new beginnings, sunsets, and not taking life too seriously”. Happy Sunday friends!
Alright guys, remember how big of a deal it was when I got my side-swept bangs? Well, I’ve gone and changed things up again…I went for the full on, Zooey Deschanel-esque, whole enchilada straight across bangs. AND I LOVE THEM. Seriously.
This is my favorite hair change I think I’ve ever made (which isn’t super surprising because, as a true child of the 90’s, I rocked similar bangs up until 2000 to the point that I would cut them myself-at age 4-when my mom tried to convince me I should grow them out because I have epic cowlicks along my hairline which left me looking like a crazy Alfalfa for most of that decade). Needless to say, like both of my more recent hairstyle changes, I was shaking in the barber’s chair as I watched my locks fall.
Luckily, my stylist taught me how to blow dry the cowlicks out for the most part (I still get a small gap where one lick lies, and one chunk of hair refuses to sit totally flat no matter how much I try to flatten it…I swear my hair has a mind of it’s own) and I no longer look like a slightly ugly duckling. In fact, I think this cut actually makes me look older than any other haircut I’ve ever had just in time for job interviews and trying to convince people I really am a responsible 20-something.
As far as life goes, I’ve been slowly assimilating to my suburban surroundings and soaking up the sunshine that followed me back from the East Coast (yes, I single handedly brought the sun to the Pacific Northwest…maybe I should put that on my resume, who wouldn’t want to hire the person who controls the weather?!). My life has become a series of days spent reading, watching tv (I know I know, I didn’t used to watch much tv at all but there’s a lot less to do out here and I have about 2 friends in a 20 minute drive radius so I’m working really hard to find ways to fill my unemployed time), and hanging out with this pretty lady.
I think she has become my absolute favorite model (sorry Sequins) because she’s free to take pictures whenever I want and she never talks back…but she’s awful at taking direction. You can’t have it all, I suppose.
What’s everyone else up to this summer? How do you entertain yourself in the ‘burbs? (Does anyone even call them “the ‘burbs” or is that me?)
