Hello! I know Saturday posts are rare, but I figured I stop in and say hello while the babe naps! I tried that “no heat curl” tutorial that has been flying around the internet lately. Well, I mean, what else am I going to do on a Friday night, now that we’ve finished watching LOST? Exactly. At first I thought about bribing my friends to let me try it on them… but I really wanted to try it out and see if it could work on shorter hair. Welp, it worked… right? I don’t think I came out looking like some kind of rabid freak or anything (I was sightly worried about that). Honestly, I think it came out pretty cute and it really couldn’t have been easier. Something to hold me over a bit until I get my long hair back.
No real big plans this weekend. Going out tonight to celebrate a friends birthday. Food, drinks, and if I’m lucky: some photohunt. The South Florida summer is killer (I have no idea how I did it last year while pregnant) and I’m just really looking forward to it cooling down so I can actually get out of the house with Marlowe.
Actually, speaking of cooler weather. We have a vacation planned for the first week of August, Marlowe’s second plane trip. Where? Massachusetts. It’s quite amusing to me that Marlowe &Eric will both be experiencing Massachusetts for their first time— at the same time. I’m dreaming of boots and striped blazers. We’ll see how the weather treats me. *positive thoughts*
Next week I’m hoping to post three (easy, but awesome) recipes: an asian soup broth, veggie spring rolls, and indian lentil fritters. nom nom nom.
I’ve been wondering where Marlowe picked up this scrunch face look. She does it *constantly* now. Michelle’s response was: “really? really? you don’t know? you do it constantly!” While taking these hair photos, I realized: she was right. I really really do make that face. (see photo above) A lot. Heh. Umm, also, Marlowe? She’s awake now. And I guess in her sleep she learned how to say “bye bye!” 🙂 🙂 🙂 She is awesome. Now she just needs to get the hand gestures and the mouth going at the same time. (Tomorrow she’ll do it, I’m sure). Also! Now when she gets a little brave or excited, she is taking about three steps at a time! She only gets cooler each day that goes by!
