The Hair! Oh No, Not The Hair!

crap my hubby says


A small rant … I have very few physically redeeming features. But, one that I do have is my absolutely gorgeous hair. I have a ton of it, it does what I want, and the colors are lovely.

I went to the hairdresser last week, had a full cover color, then my hair foiled, then a haircut. I left thinking it looked darker than normal, but it was evening and I didn’t pay much attention to it in the salon under those lights. One thing my stylist does well, and I mean well is hair color. He is a freaking genius with color selection, knows just where the foils should go, how many, and what lift.

A freaking color genius I tell you!

A few hours after I got home from the hair dresser, I went upstairs to prepare for bed. When I got the brush out to brush my hair, I happened to look in the mirror. And I stared in disbelief. The entire left side of my head was red without a highlight in sight! No highlights in the bangs. No face framing on the right side. All I had was crown highlight color. Well that, and the back looked pretty good. YAY! I could walk backwards into a room and look awesome. Forward? Not-so-much.

Just in case I wasn’t clear: There was not one highlight on the left side of my head!!

To say I was a tad upset would be an understatement of epic proportions. I seriously considered running out to buy a bottle of hair dye, but then I realized that wasn’t going to make my hair any lighter or provide any contrast. Recognizing that, I still spent a good 30 minutes talking myself out of a car ride!

I had a conference to go to in two days. I told Hubby I was not going if my hair couldn’t be fixed. I also had various other functions including a dinner the next night that I was fretting attending because of how awful my hair looked.

Oh whoa is me! I barely slept I was so upset that my hair looked so awful.

Yeah, it may be vain, a tad over the top or any other narcissistic verbiage you’d care to apply, but I really love my hair. And my hair looked like crap.

And through it all, Hubby was soooooooooo supportive.

“Doesn’t look any different to me!” – this from the man that spotted a paint drip in the middle of our freshly painted cabinets from across the room! This from the man that can spot an un-set nail in shoe molding from 50 feet away. This from the man that complains every single time I come back from the hairdresser with my hair flat-ironed because he hates how that looks! According to him my flat-ironed hair looks “too different”.

But yet he couldn’t see just how different my head looked with one side all red and most of the rest of my hair red with some caramel highlights?

Soooooooooo supportive indeed.

By morning he was out and out laughing at me, “I’ll love you no matter how awful your hair looks.” “You could always wear a bag over your head.” “Go out and get a wig.” And a few other choice quips I can no longer recall (more likely they were blocked from my brain for the sake of our marriage ).

The next morning I called even before the shop was open for the day to report on the sad state of my crowning-glory. In the end my hair stylist was very apologetic, got me right in, added the foils and an hour later I walked out with my hair looking as fabulous as it usually does! Crisis averted. YAY!! And, at the conference the following day no less than a dozen people complimented my hair. Yeah, I may be vain about my hair, but it sure is purdy when done correctly!

How supportive is your SO when you go off on something that may, admittedly, not be crisis-worthy to anyone buy you?

Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Review


    Today’s Discussion will be about Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita!

    Last April, Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita hit shelves, and in less than eight months, became the leading flavored malt beverage brand on the market, selling more than 500,000 barrels.

    Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Nutritional Information

    Calories per 12 oz serving 247
    Carbs 43.7
    Fat 0
    Alcohol 8% by volume

    The green color is putrid. Truly not pretty at all. There is an effervescence, and smells a tad Margarita-y when poured. When left to sit a while, the yeast come to the forefront. Going down, it is bubbly and takes more like a Margarita than an ale. There is no head at all, so don’t expect many ale qualities.

    The big negative is this goes down very, very easy. Not too tart, not too sweet, it is like drinking a pop – and at 165 calories in a 8oz can, and 8% of alcohol, that can be a bad thing.

    I love, love, love the Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Review. Last year, we bought three cases worth, and for us that is a HUGE amount of a malt liquor product. I highly recommend giving it a try if you enjoy beer, ale or some other type of malt beverage. It is different and delicious!

    I wrote about this last year on Coupons, Deals and more, but wanted to re-run an updated post because in the next week or two I plan on reviewing the Straw-Ber-Rita I have no idea if it can measure up to the Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita, but I am willing to give it a try!

    As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls


When posting New York State pictures on Monday, I knew it wouldn’t be complete without a picture of Niagara Falls. So, Hubby, Max and I hopped into the car a few weeks ago and took the trip up to the Falls for some pictures. Like many people who live very close to Niagara Falls, we don’t go very often – the visit is usually reserved for when company comes to town. I keep forgetting just how majestic the Falls are! Since if was a cold, blustery day, there weren’t that many visitors, and so I could take a lot of photos unimpeded!



Niagara Falls


Welcome to Niagara Falls!

There really is a crisis hotline phone located at the end of the Niagara River, just before the Falls form. I sincerely hope it has saved a lot of jumpers. People do not survive jumping over the American Falls.
