Call Me a Copy-Cat

I'd like to say that Erin has once again inspired a change of style, but I'm starting to fear I've become the haircut copy-cat. Either way, I'm in love with another new 'do. (Please excuse the makeup-less appearance. And I had a really hard time getting a good face-on self portrait with the available lighting, so you don't get one. Trust me, though, it looks good.)

In other news this weekend:
  • I won $20 for Sephora and $10 for Target during the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival. Wahoo! Now, what to buy?
  • I saw Hancock last week with My Love. I know it got really bad reviews, but I actually enjoyed it.
  • I got the final word that Mexico in January is really on. I'm going to Mexico, people. Sun, sand and (gulp) beach. Must. Commence. Weight loss. NOW.
  • My skin is breaking out like crazy. At 32 I expect the occasional hormonal pimple, but my chin is starting to look like it did in my teens. Unacceptable. I'm afraid it may have something to do with my recent increased intake of carbohydrates.
  • I realized last week that I haven't eaten meat in weeks. How does that happen? It wasn't purposeful, but I think the plethora of veggies these days has usurped the presence of meat. I don't mind. My only concern is that I might not be getting enough protein. I see more fish and beans in my future.
  • My new favorite place is Panera. Did you know they have free wi-fi? And free refills on soda, coffee and tea? It's my new favorite place to go and write when I'm too distracted at home. (Or when I feel the need to be around other living, breathing human beings while I get some work done.) I also love their soup/salad combos. Yummy. This is NOT good for my budget.
  • It was an incredibly beautiful day today. The sun was shining and there was a nice breeze, not a single cloud in the sky. I actually took advantage of it and walked in the park this morning. It was 68 degrees at 9:30AM with practically no humidity. I'm not complaining, but that's a bit unseasonably cool for August 9th.
I hope you're all enjoying your weekend, too.

I think your hair cut looks great! I would never have the nerve to cut my hair that short. LOL!

Don't fret about the break outs. I'm 40 and I still get them. Right now I have a few. I think maybe it's the heat.

pretty hair! (and you have great cheekbones!)

panera is awesome. one of my favorite lunch spots. but do NOT look at the calorie counts of their sandwiches. totally dampens the whole experience.

hooray for a warm, sunny beach in january! totally jealous.

LOVE it!!! It really looks so beautiful on you. I'm so glad you did it : )

Lucky bum going to Mexico! I really want to go this year.

I got my first taste of Panera in June while we were on our road trip and I wish we had one here!

Great 'do--it's nice to change it up, isn't it? I never considered Panera for a writing stop, but will def keep it in mind now. Free refills on coffee too? Sign me up :)

I think your hair looks great! I wish I could get my hair cut like that. But with naturally curly hair it just doesn't work that way. It looks cute!

Thanks, all, for the vote of confidence on the haircut. Yesterday I wasn't really feeling it, but today I was able to style it more like my stylist did and I'm loving it again.

Kimberly - It's good to know I'm not the only one. And going this short has been a gradual process. The last time I went this short I hated it, so it's all about the style.

P - You're too, too kind! And I'm definitely looking forward to sun and beach in January. (If you can fit in my carry-on I'll take you with me.) ;) As for Panera's calorie count, I was so mad because I looked up the information for my 1/2 Greek salad and it was 220(!) calories with 20(!!!) grams of fat. For a salad. Yikes!

Erin - Thanks so much. You're my haircut inspiration!

Joanne - Panera is a great place for writing. Lots of great characters come in and out, too, in case you need inspiration. :)

Noregrets - Veggies every day is good. But your own garden is even better. :) Totally jealous at the idea of it.

Fat Chick - You never know...My hair is naturally wavy, but the shorter I cut it, the straighter it gets. Weird, huh?

Cute, cute, CUTE!!

I love it.

I miss you. We're overdue for another sushi/Starbucks night! What's good for you, my dear?
