Today is one of my last days before leaving to go to Montreal, and I had the best of intentions to wake up early this morning to get in a good, long, workout before going to work.
I prepared my “cocoon” the night before. That’s what Chris calls my sleeping-spot. I like to pack myself into bed snugly between two long pillows, face down in the regular pillow, then tucked in with blankets. Chris and I each use a separate blanket because of my tucking habits – I like it wrapped around my feet and tucked around my sides. Nothing like that still-inside-the-uterus feeling
But despite my diligence in going to bed early and being tucked in just right (yes, I’m basically OCD), my night of sound sleep was thwarted.
First – I had several dreams (I usually don’t dream & I rarely remember them when I do). Unfortunately, all of my dreams were about work. Fun.
Thank goodness is wasn’t vomit I had to clean up (and he was able to make it outside with no clean-up needed), but we don’t have a doggy door so about every hour or so starting around midnight….I had to get up and let the poor baby out.
Don’t worry – he’s rested today and I think he feels much better by now.
In the morning I was pretty exhausted when my alarm went off. And….I may have snoozed through my scheduled gym time. Even by the time I actually got up, I was still not.at.all ready to be awake.
But that’s okay, because my first appointment of the morning was to get my hair cut & colored!!! I LOVE Aveda salons and that’s where I had my appointment. And I ended up changing my hair a decent amount! Here’s my BEFORE (sorry I look so angry! I was sleepy!)
I chopped about 3 inches off, added tons of layers around the face (the back is still pretty straight), and some long side sweeping bangs that are still long enough for me to pull back. I also added some dark lowlights to darken the color a little, overall.
What do you think?
I’m liking it….but I hope I can recreate it on my own without problems!
Anyways, I’m spending the evening meeting with a business acquaintance of Chris’ and then packing my bags for the trip. Fun stuff!
How to you pick where to get your hair cut when you’re in a new place?
Do you always do your hair the same way, or do you mix it up?
