Valentine's Day, Ice Cream and Salsa



Well, as you all you know Valentine's Day just happened. Patrick and I participated in our usual 'fancy holiday' festivities, we went to a movie, had dinner, and got dessert. Those are all very stereotypical activities to do on a date but that's usually what we go for. In honor of the big day, I had the great idea of trying out pin curls for the first time late on Saturday night. I had no idea if it would work and would have no time to change my mind in the morning despite the results, but most of the time I think I function best living on a whim. To my great surprise on Sunday... it worked! My hair was big and huge and curly. I owe it all the the lovely Aya and her great tutorials. I think I shall be trying this style out more often!


patrick was behind the camera this time, so that means serious pictures were out of the question

With my hair taking up a larger amount of space than usual, we were off. I feel lucky to live outside of Savannah, it's perfect the perfect place for wandering around and looks so amazing. We drove downtown, parked, and then set off in search of food. We ended up going to a Mexican restaurant and it was delicious. I ate Mexican food ALL the time when I lived in Washington, but its a rarity down here for some dumb reason. Let's just say I ate more than my fair share of the chips and salsa. We then saw that Valentine's Day movie and I've never had a worse movie theater experience in my life! People were yelling, clapping, cheering, yelling at strangers to shut up, the manager was in there nonstop telling people to be quiet and put their feet down. It was a zoo! And we were by far the oldest people in the room. And the move wasn't that good (maybe the atmosphere tainting my perception). We lastly headed home with ice cream in tow, once home I proceeded to eat the whole container. Ahhh holidays....

Also, I think everyone needs to check out my friend Annie's new(ish) blog so you can love her like I do!

  4. your tights are so Happy! hair looks awesome. Pincurls are the only way I can get my hair to stay. If mine is already dry, I curl it with a small curling iron & then pin it up.

  7. Hey babes, It must be warming up for you guys if you're able to show us your tatts!

    I too have followed Aya's tutorials (together with a few others) and feel 100 per cent love for the pincurl. I call it Pincurl Saturday these days, as I'm always dolled up that way! xoxo

  9. Awww, I love you!
    Is your snow all gone already?!
    Your hair looks so cool like that, and I say you do it like that every single day, even for goat tending.
    Those husbands sure cause a lot of silliness!

  15. wow i love your heart tattoo, kind of appropriate for the holiday i guess! I also went to see Valentine's Day and i'm sorry to say I was probably one of those annoying viewers...but in my defense, we were practically the only ones in the theater and that line from Taylor Lautner made me laugh so hard - "I'm a little uncomfortable taking my shirt off in public."
