Recappin'

I had a lot of things I wanted to write about last week, like the movie Leatherheads (Go see it! I would have liked it even without the one-two punch of George Clooney and John Krasinski, although they made it even more enjoyable.) and how I found the new episode of The Office a little disconcerting and a bit depressing (although not as depressing as the last one before the WGA strike) or the fact that even though a lot of good things are happening in the lives of my friends and family, that I really, really don't like change.  But then I decided to start waking up at 5:15 in the morning to work out the same week I decided to give up my once-a-day Coke&Lime and/or Dr. Pepper habit.  So I spent whatever time I wasn't at work curled up in a pitiful ball on my bed wishing for sweet oblivion of sleep.  I spent most of my time at work wishing for the same thing, except that I was forced to sit upright at my desk.

My reasons for getting up before the sun and giving up the sweet nectar of caffeinated carbonation are based in the desire to be healthier and skinnier.  I wasn't making the time to workout in the evenings, so I had to do it when no one would plan anything to interrupt.  Which meant when all sane people are still asleep.  And we all know soda makes one fat and rots one's teeth.  The final tipping point in favor of the pre-dawn workout was a new hairstyle that I can take from sopping wet to (as my visiting teacher put it) 'foxy' in ten minutes.  See:



I don't know if 'foxy' is the word I would use, but a woman I see at the courthouse all the time told me that she never wanted to see me in long hair again.  I think she might be right. 

Would you concur?

Oh. I concur. You look about 12 kinds of hot.

Thanks! I can't wait to see your new, hot hair!

I love the cute cut! I think you look good with long hair too though. But I do like short hair better. The color looks great too!

Heather said...

Foxy definitely does it! And WAY TO GO on the exercise and soda sacrifice.. If only I had that kind of motivation.. I'm trying to see how fast I can put it on!! oh bother.

but I LOVE the hair cut and you are looking very swank I must say!

Oh and good luck with the working out and no sodas. We recently switched to diet sodas and no candy and cookies and have lost weight. If you miss soda too much, like me, diet Dr. Pepper is good. And Coke Zero doesn't taste so much like "diet".

Wicked cute. And as always, jealous of the red. ;) Parker

Wow! Love it! It looks fab and professional and young and fun all at the same time! I just wish I lived somewhere wetter-because in Italy with all of the moisture my hair of 45 minutes turned into 10 with the natural-ish wave.

Thanks guys!

In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit I have fallen off the Coke&Lime wagon multiple times. And my chocolate cravings have skyrocketed. I'm guessing a handful of chocolate chips after lunch is just as bad as the 8 oz of Coke&Lime. If not worse.

Cami said...

darling! it almost makes me want to go short! thanks for the bday card :)

cherbear said...

At least the chocolate chips have antioxidants!!

Dido, I LOVE the cut its so cute. It's probably also easy to do. I just cut mine short and I love it. I get compliments on it all the time even by men. Short and sassy fits me pretty well. I also like the color of it.

Katie said...

I absolutely ADORE your hair. SO. Fetchin. CUTE! You look fabulous!

aquamarine said...

Oh, it looks perfect for spring and summer! The color is killer!

Falling off the band wagon seems to be my forte! Keep at it. Eventually a good habit will stick.

ZB said...

I concur! Seriously seriously...so dang cute! It works, like really really works. And you look fabulous! The color! I concur!

Hey if your visiting teacher calls it foxy, what more is there to say?

katharine said...
