Hair Cut, Kale, & Willow Smith
Man am I on a roll this week with my post titles or what?! (Ha, only kidding)
It is absolutely gorgeous outside today! Already almost 70 degrees at 8:30! When it is warm and humid like this I feel like I am on vacation (well until I get to work!) because Im not all the way used to it yet after moving.
But I like it and I’ll take it!
Random #1: Ooooopsie
Last night I was being awesome and helping Torrance cut his hair. He always cuts his own hair with clippers/a buzzer and then I trim up the back on his hairline and neck etc.
Well, I was cutting the back with the buzzer, getting all close on his neck and such (it turned out marvelous if I do say so myself). So when I was done, I was holding the clippers as he brushed his neck off and I asked him “how do you turn this off?….” and then I whipped my head around and I heard the buzzers go.
I took off a chunk off the side/end of my ponytail. Ooooops. Torrance says he would have killed for a picture of my face and me staring at the chunk of hair that fell onto the counter.
I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t take my hair out of the ponytail to check out the damage for a while… when I finally decided to check it out. The missing chunk was right toward the front (just my luck). I trimmed it a little bit extra with scissors so it wasn’t so square looking. There’s about a 1 inch spot that is 2 inches shorter than the rest.
Random #2: I want to eat Kale
I’ve been reading about all the benefits of kale. I like it, but I don’t really know what to do with it. I’m not really a fan of it roasted/chip style. Teach me the ways.

Random #3: The best things ever
Finding money. It is the best feeling ever. In a jacket pocket, in a pair of jeans, or between the console and the seat in my messy truck:
Finding money is a close 2nd to the feeling you get when you wake up in the middle of the night and look at the clock only to realize you still have a few hours left to sleep (I don’t think anything tops that).
- Tina answered some questions about CrossFit. Lots of info if it is something you are interested in!
- Lindsey shared her [hilarious] thoughts on “what if you could Google anything?”
- Lauren shared an awesome looking recipe for Shrimp & Brown Riced Stuffed Peppers. I havent gotten to try yet, but its on the list because it sounds and looks fabulous!
- Courtney shared a recipe for some pretty unique and amazing looking cookies (they involve chocolate and peanut butter, go look!)
Lastly, this one gets a little extra notice.
I shared my thoughts about skin cancer awareness (along with my confession of using tanning beds for years) a few weeks ago here.
Random #5: Kona’s jam
Kona does not like Willow Smith.
There is a commercial that has her song “I whip my hair back and forth, I whip my hair back and forth!” on it, and anytime it comes on, Kona whines and chases her tail. I have assumed she hates it. Kona never chases her tail so this is bazaar.
But now I wonder….maybe she really likes it and is dancing?
I dont have much for weekend plans (besides training tonight). Hopefully this good weather keeps up and I can spend some time outside!
Have a good day!
