new hair!

so, i have this process that i always seem to go through - i grow my hair out...and then it all gets chopped off. i'm not entirely sure why i do this so often but it's how i've been since senior year of high school. maybe it's cathartic? i think that i typically like to have shorter hair but now that i'm getting older i like to have some length, too. got it cut today. i'm pretty happy with it! it's cute, it's funky and it's fun. i think that i'm still adjusting to all the highlights i got put in. i like them but i think i'll stick to a little darker next time. i've gotten really used to myself with darker hair and i kinda like it. but the highlights are very pretty! my hair stylist is pretty awesome! and she's now a friend so that's kinda great. well, here are some other pics of the new hair!

a smidge of a teaser and news

ok - so it's admittedly been a horrible thing of mine to neglect this blog. seriously, deplorable...what am i thinking!? apparently those four of you who read are dying to know what's going on. well - lots!

moved into a new apartment, still looking for sustainable work....GOT ENGAGED! yup, i used caps...never do that so you know how flippin' excited i am about marrying this guy! he's amazing, he loves me for who i am, no matter how screwed up i am and it's all ditto back in his direction. i also started writing in a freelance capacity which is fun and kinda nerve-wracking!

anyways - we're getting married in 90 days from today, yup, 90! no, i'm not preggers, we just wanna get hitched and do it in a non-fussy way. i'm going to post some d.i.y. wedding projects here over the next couple of weeks along with some apartment goodness. i love my new place and can't wait to share it, but tonight it's just not so pretty!

i've had a bit of a breakthrough today - i am going to be making some changes and i think i'll be better for it. those are just two of my little to-do lists at the top. i find that life goes smoother when i write lists... i get rather neurotic about them but oh well.

and here is just a little teaser of the new apartment to keep you coming back in a week!!

oooh la la! it's an un-styled look at the corner of my bedroom
(the other corner is full of laundry), don't you just love that fan!? ::gag::
