Highlights and Lowlights

Who loves to go get their hair done?


This girl does!

With that theme in mind, here are some "highlights" and "low lights" from the last few days.

HIGHLIGHTS:

-Made it to LEVEL 3 of Jillian Michaels on Saturday, and I didn't die!

-Went on a date night. (Gasp! Date night hasn't occurred since October or November. We couldn't remember!)

-Went to one of our favorite restaurants for date night.

-Danced, danced, danced the night away to one of my favorite singers/bands. Once the music started, I never stopped. It was glorious. When it was over, I went upstage and hugged the singer. I love him so much.

He said, "Thanks for coming tonight! You really brought a lot of energy!" (Yes, we'll call it "energy." Not Sprocket lunacy.)

-Got to go to my boy's Valentine's party at preschool today. Watching your kid on stage and with his preschool buddies never gets old!


LOW LIGHTS:

-Level 3 Jillian Michaels + 3 hours of nonstop dancing = very sore muscles. Ack, my back!

-Wine at dinner + a martini after-dinner drink + a few cranberry vodkas at the bar =
a "slight" hangover the next day.


-Feel like I'm so behind on blogging (and, always, writing), so hope you enjoyed this quick attempt at a post.


By the way, Parker loves hockey.

Do you ever wonder how we managed to party so much in college? Hangovers are beastly!

Love this post! Your hair is awesome and that cat...well, that's just a good drinking barometer. ;) Hubs and I have the Syrah flowing tonight....tomorrow is all about the kiddo Valentine parties, ballet classes, and errands.

eating, drinking, dancing - what's not to like?

Love your hair and I'm jealous about the 3 hour dancing. I went salsa dancing with my husband not so long ago, but we only managed an hour. There is only so much I can do the basic without getting bored out of my brains! We were home before 10 :)

Your hair looks great and why worry about blogging when you're having a great time and can make us all jealous afterwards?! :)

Loved hearing about date night! I thought the cat picture was a pretty good reminder of your position when we are in Mexico! LOVE YOUR HAIR! LOVE YOU! Mom

I'm getting my hair did on Saturday - so can't wait.

Your kiddo and hockey? that's my boys, too! 6 yr old got an assist on Sunday :)

TV's Take said...

Love the hair! Sounds like a great weekend. Gotta love the preschool performances.

Natalie said...

I am loving your theme! You actually just reminded me to go get my hair did! Glad you went on a date night and also danced, danced, danced!

Jackie said...

I think that this is the first time I have seen a full picture of you... of course if you posted one before that just means I haven't been around often enough to see it.
Date night.. what is that?
Jillian Michaels DVD.... it's hiding in the cabinet because it scares the hell out of me.

Babes Mami said...

Love the highlights! Hooray for level three and hockey haha

Jessica said...

Wine and martinis are never a good combo for me. I have to stick with one or the other.

Happy Valentine's day!

Sandra said...

Very much enjoyed your quick attempt at post, especially paired with a pic of you. I have to say, you are my girl crush. More pictures please!

Love the high/low lights!

Highlight: getting highlights for the first time in MONTHS

Lowlight: what I feel in about 5-6 weeks when I have to get my roots touched up

We had date night this past weekend. We don't do it often enough either. Glad you got to let your pretty hair down!

Susie said...

There is an upside and downside to everything good, isn't there?

Deb said...

Like you, I am so, so far behind on blogging. I'm trying to wrap my mind around the fact I will never actually get caught up, but I can't quite seem to do it.

I'm so happy to have been given a couple of hours off to try while hanging out at my favorite cafe. Loved reading this, and hopefully will be reading more from you soon! :)

Annette said...

Gotta love getting older. You go out for one night of dancing and then your back makes you pay for it for the next several days... I went to Little Lewie's Valentine's Day Preschool party too. Although, they didn't put on a play or anything... Glad you had a nice day and date night this week!

That picture of Parker is adorable. He looks like a cheaky chappy :-)
