Because I am a girl and it is completely acceptable to take pictures of oneself, here I am just moments before leaving for our date tonight. I actually fixed my hair for the first time in I don’t know how long. The Houston humidity is not good for my mane. Actually, if we are being honest, my hair problems really started when I got pregnant. With each pregancy, my hair got a little bit thicker and a little bit curlier, but not super curly, just curly enough that it’s a pain to straighten, and every once in awhile if the weather and timing is perfect I have nice curls, or I have nice straight-ish hair. But that is rare. However, with perserverence of heart, Connor sleeping, and Logan entertained by the Wiggles and a baggie of cereal, I dried my locks all the way dry and left it down. This is nothing short of a miracle. My own husband commented on it. Actually, I believe his comment was “wow, you have a lot of hair.”, said as he walked up to me from afar in Target. I believe what he actually meant to say was “I could see you a mile away because of the semi-afro that you are sporting tonight.”
Anyway, I digress.
We went to the Cinema Grill for our date. Dinner and a movie, all at the same time. It’s such a time efficient date. And affordable when you have a coupon for two free movie tickets and a buy one get one free meal coupon. I’m glad that our date was affordable so that we could go to Target to buy diapers and toilet paper. Oh, and a video game, and a new outfit. So cheap date turned into expensive date, but the mama and dad are happy, so it’s all good.
Can we please get a behind view of the afro?
I believe in another 6 months, or maybe a year, I will have enough hair to cut off to donate to Locks of Love. And I will be super skinny with super cute haircut. I will be hot, no doubt about it.
And on a totally different subject…Mary worked at the pool today. Ughh. I really need to write a letter and complain. She a real piece of work. And after a little convo with some other moms, I can say without a doubt that I am not the only one with Mary issues.
PS-every time I type the name Mary, I think that I am writing about Mary from 7th Heaven.
Happy Wednesday, my few faithful blog readers!
