Friday night we had a friend's surprise 30th birthday, so I decided to make my hair a little fancy. I hadn't done the whole curl my hair thing in a while, so thought I would give this tutorial a whirl. The ironic thing is that my hair is naturally curly, ha. But I prefer how it looks when I straighten it, then recurl it so it's a more loose wave. Basically I'm a little crazy. The only real difference between that tutorial and the way I normally curl my hair is the addition of dry shampoo. I'm not entirely convinced I liked it, but it was worth a shot. Tim got to be my lovely photographer. Here is a shot of me pre-curls, ignore my dorky poses. Also, this picture is a good example of how thick my hair is - it looks pretty crazy here.
And here I am post-hair-curling-tutorial.
I prefer the curls.
Tim built a kitchen island that we ordered from Amazon on Saturday, and tonight we ran down to IKEA for some bar stools. They don't match perfectly, but we're pretty happy with them.
I also made french toast from this recipe, and I have to say they are not kidding about challah bread. ALL THE DIFFERENCE. It was pretty darn amazing if I do say so myself, and a small contribution to our household since Tim has been cooking almost every single meal. Oops! I get home later than him, so he's been cooking every night. I just do the dishes, it's kind of the best deal ever. He's good at this whole husband thing.
Here's the french toast in all it's glory.
This tutorial is next on my list, I bought the plant pots and spray paint already :)
