Real fast...

I need to put in some overtime, so here I am taking a break to blog.  Awesome, Nat.  Good job. 

I'm meeting my Momma at the get-pretty place tonight for haircuts and facials.  My Momma's never had a facial, and I can't wait to see how much she loves the experience.  I wanted to spring for some hot stone massages, too, but she was all "I don't know...I don't want you to spend all that money on me..." so I didn't do it, and now I'm regretting it and wishing I'd just said "whatever" and signed us up anyhow.  Maybe we'll do that next week.

I've been in desperate need of a haircut for probably the last 2 years.  No, I'm not exaggerating - for some reason I'm incredibly nonchalant and lazy about having my tresses trimmed.  My last two "trims" were self-inflicted - fed up with my ragged split ends, I got out of the shower, pulled my wet locks into a ponytail, then used nail scissors to cut the most damaged 2 inches or so off the ends.  Dull, curved nail scissors at that.  Needless to say, tonight's professional touch is long overdue. 

The boss is out of town today and tomorrow, which mean Finn-dog gets to come to work with me.  YAY!  Work!!!  I wish I could get as excited about it as him.  He doesn't even get paid to be here and he loves it.  Maybe we should all try harder to be a little more like a dog when it comes to work.  Or something.

I made my famous, delicious, you-know-you-want-some beefy vegetable soup last night.  SO YUM.  I brought enough today to share with my co-workers because I'm sweet and generous like that...and because I don't know how to make less than a full stewpot of soup and I know Jimi and I aren't going to be able to eat only soup for the next week.  One of these days, I'll start meal-planning and will freeze my leftover soups and such.  One of these days.  Kimmie said the next time I make this particular soup, she wants me to triple the recipe and sell her the extra.  I wish Kimmie was rich so i could charge her a million bucks and not feel bad about it.

I'm still reeling from all the love last night that came from the awesomeness that is FTLOB and their readers.  So many new comments and followers!!!  I feel so special.  Thank you for liking me.  Now I have to go read all of your blogs so I can get to know you and how awesome you are. 

That's all I've got for now, and I really need to go do some work, so I'm gonna do that.  Have a lovely, happy, sunshine-filled Wednesday!


  1. Shame on you! Dull, curved Nail Scissors...eeeeeeek!

    You "kitchen hairdressers" make my life as a professional stylist a nightmare....lolol

    Promise me here and now that you will never, ever do that again...okay?

    By the way, your soup sounds deeeeelish!!

    Have a good one...enjoy your evening of real beauty!


  2. I can't make that promise, Patty - but I promise I'll try really hard to not ever do it again. Along those you live near Louisville? Wanna come over and cut my hair? I've been trying to find a friend with shears for months!

  3. Natalie...if I lived anywhere near you, I'd be over faster than a prom dress comes off on prom night!

    Move closer to New York and we can meet halfway..or, come East and call me!

    When you go for your massages tonight, I'm sure the salon would be more than happy to add/change the hot stones; good salons are eager to up-sell services!


  4. I went a good number of years having my husband trim my hair. Often ending in shorter-than-intended hair cut. and I often 're-trim' my bangs if they don;t look right with whatever crumpled pony tail I've got going.
    My friend, a hairdresser, gave me a real haircut and about died. She said it was so messed, crooked, uneven, etc- she didn't know what to do with it. It was devastating. She moved and I am back to trimming my own bangs, but do get 'a real hair cut' from time to time.

    Thanks for the follow back. Hope to see you on my blog sometime soon!

  5. Found you on FTLOB!

    PS your blog is not boring! Everyone talks about themselves. Personally, I LOVE IT.


Please don't make me cry.
