“Jake, I did something…”
I had heard him come up the stairs and into our room. I was in the bathroom, and turned my back to him. “Oh really?” he responded.” I did something, too!” Turns out his “something” was buying a shredder attachment for our Kitchenaid so that he could make homemade hash browns with it. (Ummm, OK?!? He’s a keeper, folks.) I glanced in the mirror at myself again, then down at the scissors and trashcan on the bathroom counter. My “something” was a bit more drastic…
“I gave myself bangs.”
As in, legit straight-across-the-forehead bangs. I’d wanted to try this for a while, considering I’ve had the same hairstyle for like the last, oh I don’t know… TEN YEARS. It was time to change things up. Well, something possessed me last week, and I just went for it. Which could have been disastrous. Fortunately, I turned around to show Jake, and he genuinely smiled. “I like them.” And with that I was happy as a clam. (Sidenote- where did that saying even come from? Are clams really happy? End sidenote.)
But of course, I had to get some approval from the interwebs as well. So instagrammed it. And fortunately, most of you guys seem to like them, too. Thanks everyone, for approving of my bangs :)
(P.S. Don’t worry, I totally went and got them professionally trimmed the next day. Ha.)
And with that, on an utterly and completely unrelated tangent, I feel like it’s time for another giveaway!!
The weather this year has just been crazy, and here in Park City we are already starting to see a few leaves changing and signs of Fall coming. While some might be soaking up the last sun rays and squeezing summer for all she’s worth, I’m over it. I LOVE FALL!!! Woohoo!! Scraves and pumpkin spice lattes, crunchy leaves and cardigans… Oh yes, I am ready for Fall. One thing that helps get me pumped are Yankee Candles, like Pomegranate Cider and Spiced Pumpkin. Deeelish.
So I’m going to send one lucky commenter a Yankee Candle! To win, just leave a comment below telling me what scent you would want, and I’ll randomly choose a winner from the comments on Friday. While I recommend any of the Fall Favorites, you can choose any scent you’d like! I mean, you never go wrong with Clean Cotton :) So there you have it! What scent do you want to ring in the Fall with? Ready… GO!
