Panic & Hair

You know what has gotten long? My hair. I looked at it the other day in the mirror and thought "d*mn, my little hay pile is stacking up quite a bit these days". I don't think I've had my own hair that long in many, many moons - if ever. Gonna rock it out for a bit. Though, the only problem was that I told Jay that I would go blonde again "when my hair was longer" just to get him to leave me alone. Now I need to make up a new lie as to why I don't feel like dealing with bleach to stave him off for a bit. Perhaps next time he asks I'll just go with an old faithful response. #EverythingComesBackToFriends

In other news, with August approaching I feel like I owe it to the world to explain how stressed (albeit excited) I am for this month. We get the keys to our new place on Monday (eee!) then, like 3 days later, are road tripping up to Portland for over a week for a wedding/my birthday/my sister's birthday/vacation (while working remotely most days - technology sucks in that respect), then heading to a lake with Jay's family in Central Oregon as we weave our way South. Then back to San Francisco in the middle of August. Once we're back, the movers are arriving about 10 seconds later and we are then officially moving in to the new place and officially moving out of the old place. Right after the moving and cleaning, Jay flies back up to Oregon for a really popular race and then we are going back to Portland in September for our last wedding (nevermind that I was out of town on trips 3 out of 4 of the last weekends)MY HEAD HURTS. SO MANY LIFE EVENTS, FUN MOMENTS AND SPECIAL TIMES IN 30 DAYS, I'm so excited I could have a panic attack.

So if you got all that down, you would see that our only real, quality time to pack our house up is this weekend. So that is what we will be doing from today after work until the end of the day on Sunday.

I hope you have better plans than me! 
TGIF :)

The rest of your summer kind of sounds exactly like ours! Somehow we managed to rope ourselves into doing something every weekend for like the next two months. While it's going to be fun, I know that I'm going to be stressed out too! I hope that you have a great weekend of packing, even though it's probably the worst thing in the entire universe! But the bright side is that you'll be in your new apartment before you know it!

Get it done girlfriend! The packing, not the blonde. Bleach hurts!

Nadine Lynn said...

I love your current hair color, you rock it! I am sure you would be beautiful blonde too but so much maintenance. Boys don't get it! Good luck with all that packing! I am exhausted just reading what you have going on!

My favorite response to anything ever is, "I wish I could, but I don't want to." I seriously think of that line constantly!

Go blonde! Haha. It's funner! ;)

Pat Hatt said...

Wow, you will be on a roll for the next few weeks or more. Hopefully the move goes easy to your new shore.

Wow lady you have some busy weeks ahead but so many fun things to look forward to! Working remotely sucks in that respect but at least you have that option. Good luck with the move and I hope packing is going smoothly this weekend.

Yes! The long hair is working for you girl (as are the dark locks!). Sounds super busy, but exciting! Can't wait to see some more photos of the new place and how you make it a home :) xx

Fun, fun, fun!! Love when life is hectic and then you finally have some downtime...! Life has been slow for me, but will pick up again shortly...!

Jaclyn said...

Eep!! Enjoy all those fun trips and events. Don't work too hard during your vacation. And I love the long hair!!

Brittany said...

Yikes! SO BUSY, but in a great way. Time flies and everything you need to get done always seems to get done somehow. Amazing how that works. I absolutely LOVE your hair, by the way.

oh man, when i went brunette i told KC i'd go back blonde after a bit and that was 4 years ago lol. i just can't be bothered with the maintenance. KC is super cheap so i told him it costs lots of $$ to maintain haha. your hair is gorgeous long!
so excited for you to be in your new place! i know i'm late and you should be in your new place by now but still, that does not diminish my excitement!
