Blonde for the summer!
So a new haircut (see today's photo) doesn't really contribute to my new life goal, but it sure makes me feel sassy and ready for summer! I went to my favorite salon yesterday, Salon W, in the East Village of Des Moines and got some blond highlights for the summer. They look good. I made Shawn take a picture of me before supper, while I was still styled.
Salon W is awesome -- they start your hair experience with a scalp massage. Then a short consultation about your hair -- what's working, what's bothering you, what you might like to change. Then a quick trip over to the parafin wax station where you sink you hands into a wonderfully warm wax bath. They cover each hand with a plastic bag and then put each hand into a black mitten. Then your haircut and style. And then, they refresh your makeup for you! Seriously, it is a great place. Oh, and I almost forgot, they give you glasses of wine during your appointment!
So, back to my new life. I find out this week that my acreage in Jefferson has been foreclosed. So I don't really know what that means for me, a potential buyer. I'm trying to find that out. The more I research the houses in Jefferson and the school district, the more I like it. Yes, I am sure it will be fairly conservative, but that doesn't mean there won't be some fellow progressives there to help stir things up.
I talked to my cousin Cody last night. He offered to find me a Mississippi acreage so I could grow cotton. I respectfully declined the offer, but thanked him for thinking of me. :) I would, however, LOVE to live near my cousins, The Chews. They are all wonderful and lots of fun. And Bo might grow up with a southern accent, which would be very cute. Somehow I don't think Mazy would adopt it. He's too scientific for an accent.
Nearly Bobo's bedtime so I better wrap this up. Tonight's job: search for some job leads!
