This week, I got to do the coolest thing. I haven’t said anything about it yet, because it was a surprise for my sister. At least, that’s the official reason. One could argue that the real reason I haven’t been writing much is because I’m lazy. ANYWAY… I picked her up (completely by surprise), and took her to the SALON for her birthday! We were very excited to go get hair & nails done, but it was extra exciting because we went to Shauna’s school! It was so fun. A bottle or two of red toenail polish and a half-and-half mix of 7G/7N later… I look very different. My toes look like sparkly red Christmas ornaments from Crate and Barrel (I LOVE the color), and my hair is much darker. Em went more conservative with her hair, but it’s very, very pretty. I’m a bad sister, because I didn’t take photos after we were done (it was dark and snowing and we had to get home). I did take a few pictures while we were there, and some pictures of myself later on… although I have to apologize for the quality of the pictures. It’s very hard to take pictures of oneself. I admire anyone who can get good self-portraits. Maybe if I set up some sort of studio with a tripod and a timer… but alas, no. I handed the camera over to the eight-year-old instead.
(The boy wanted to do silly faces at the end.)
UNFORTUNATELY, I have no pictures of my sister’s beautiful hair (bad, bad Shauna). I might have to go sneak up on her and take some.
