Weekend Lessons

   I just love weeks that start with Tuesday or end with Thursday.

Things I learned this weekend… 

  • When you want to learn how to do hair, you need to get to know KATE.  If you are living under a rock and never heard of her blog, cancel all of your plans and get busy here.
My attempt at soft waves.

  • If you want to feel good about yourself, share a burger with your friend instead of eating the whole thing by yourself.  Saturday evening we met my parents, my brother and his sweet girlfriend out for a fundraiser, but grabbed burgers and drinks beforehand.  Lauren and I split a mushroom burger and while I felt good about our choice, I thought about the other half of that burger all night.  

  • I do not know as many Elton John songs as I thought I did.  The fundraiser we attended was for a local children's shelter and featured an Elton John tribute.  The lead singer was impressive and changed costumes several times to be more "elton-like."    Lee and I decided that if we are ever invited to an adult Halloween party we would dress like Elton and a tiny dancer.  I will let Lee have dibs on which he wants to be.

  • I love going to the movies.  Over Christmas break, my neighbor Tuna {that's not her real name y'all.  I call her Tuna because when I went to put her name and number in my "smart phone," it  corrected her name from Tina to Tuna.  I got a great laugh and didn't have the heart to tell the phone it was wrong}….good grief back to the sentence…Tuna and I decided to go see one movie, sans kids, just us, each month. 12 movies in 12 months.    Our January movie was August: Osage County.  This movie makes you thankful for the dysfunction that is NOT your own family.  We both left just looking at each other and saying, "huuuuh."   Have you seen it? What did you think?

  1. I was just going to tell you that you can come teach me how to curl my hair. Even following Kate's blog for years, I haven't mastered it. But then, it takes practice and I'm too lazy for that when it comes to my hair. My bestie and I saw that movie. Yes, very thankful my family isn't that dysfunctional, but I also left with a "huh?" expression. Miss you friend!
