It's mah birthday!
Oh yes, it also snowed all over including NJ!! It's the first time it ever snowed on my birthday.
Do you see my pumpkin there in the snow? (oh, and my pumpkin growing experiment was a big FAIL. So that's a store-bought pumpkin)
My neighbor's tree couldn't take it; it looks like it collapsed under the weight:
And here are three trees in various stages of de-leafing:
So I had a nice lunch down the shore with my parents, then drove back to "beat the snow" but got caught in it instead. Once I got back to my house I took a nice 2 hour nap, ahhhh....
OH! So thanks for all the comments about the straight hair. It was SO much fun to have it straight for a few days and I got a lot of interesting comments on it at work and the gym and here on the blog. To answer your questions, it was flat ironed (not the keratin treatment) and done by my hairdresser. I had never had it straightened before. I'm not planning on flat ironing it myself, but I will have it done from time to time by my hairdresser. It seemed kind of weird the first two days and then I was really loving it.
So, it's back to curly, at least for today. ;)
Here's what I worked on tonight, New Look 6071, in progress. I picked up this pattern at the ASE.
It's not done yet, but you get the idea:
It's a pretty cool looking dress and the construction is pretty awesome, very simple in a way but it looks pretty cool. That v-neck is way low though and I'll have to figure out a way to make it more work-friendly. It is actually a brown double knit though the picture color looks weird.
Funny that I chose a snowy day to make a summer dress but it's my birthday and I can do what I want. I might wear it in Austin for PR Day next month.
Be well and good night!
