So since we've chatted, I've been a blonde (below) and am now a redhead (above). In the span of a week, no less. I got inspired while watching Game of Thrones (I'm on Season 4 so no spoilers, please) by all the beautiful reds, particularly my favorite, Melisandre. I'm also growing my pixie cut back out so that's fun (insert sarcasm). I thought trying to grow a pixie out was bad but growing out a buzzcut is pretty awful, too.

Side note, my new favorite treat is Orange Sherbet and Sierra Mist

I had a wonderful 36th birthday last week. It was wonderful as in the best birthday I've ever had. I was showered with sugar treats, pumpkin everything, two cakes, a massage, concert tickets, and a new tattoo. Speaking of, I went back to Shannon at Black Arrow, and she blew me away again. I had her do the Woodruff-Fontaine House in Memphis which is where Kelly and I were married. It's so beautiful, special, and itchy right now. Hah. I want to go back and see Shannon again in October.
I can't stop, and she does the best work.

Embracing my fat girl arms and planning on having them eventually partially covered with half sleeves if that's a thing? I just want both upper arms covered.

Kelly and I are getting ready to spend a night at the
Lemp Mansion in St. Louis next week (we've got a doctor's appointment). I'm really excited. We're staying in the Lavender Suite which looks beautiful. It's supposedly haunted, but I don't believe in that kind of thing unless I have an experience. I'm more excited about the history and how beautiful it is. I was talking to my Grandma recently, and when I mentioned the hotel, she said every Sunday after church, her and my Grandfather would go to the restaurant in the basement for their fried chicken dinner. They still serve it there family style, but it won't be a Sunday so we won't get to try that.

The weather has been ridiculously amazing lately here. It's been fall like, and I'm loving it. I got to wear these Hush Puppies for the first time that I found super cheap at the thrift last year. I love them. They make me feel ass kicking and feminine. They also remind me of the 90's. I found the same style in red that were on sale s
o I will soon own them in red! I want them in every color and pattern. Hmph. I'm going to have to eventually invest in some more. Does anyone have any sworn by suede protector that I should use?

In other recent, consumer news, I finally found a Halloween banner and ordered it! I really have wanted one for my kitchen to leave up year round because, hello, it's always Halloween in my heart. I thought this one was perfect from
Bedlam Supply Co., and they had a sale going on, too.

  • I just recently remembered when that when I was a kid in St. Louis, I would get crazy excited eating on the floating McDonald's boat down by the Arch so I googled it and found this article reminiscing.  I then started thinking of how excited I would get to go to Famous Barr for Breakfast with Santa.  I have to get this book , this one about lost St. Louis treasures (which features the McDonald's boat), and maybe this one too that looks like a Roadside America book on St. Louis. I consider the south my home now, but I do still have a lot of deep memories of the city I was born/have spent so much time in.
  • I have a massage scheduled for tonight for the first time in forever, and I can't tell you how excited I am about it!  
  • Hair Chronicles:  I always have hair chronicles, you all.  I want to keep the top longer/grow out my pixie, but I'm about to shave up the sides. I'm stewing on it and staring at pictures of bad ass women with short hair to inspire me, as always.  Stay tuned.  If someone doesn't like my hair, I always say, "Wait a week."  
  • I finished Twin Peaks.  Overall, I loved it, but the last episode I had feelings about.  I wasn't really a fan of that last episode (last five minutes especially), but I'm sad Twin Peaks is done forever.  It will always be one of my favorite shows.

New hair this weekend!
 

Friday evening my magical hair artist whipped and painted and created the most perfect hair she's conjured, yet. Stormy gray and blues brewing and lapping over my skull.  She went down to a two on the buzzed sides. The shorter sides make me feel like a warrior. It feels fierce and coupled with the color, I might be able to conquer the world. It suits me.  I think this one will stay for quite some time!  Perhaps forever.  

A dear friend came back to our office bearing King Cake from Louisiana.  I had never tried it, but I knew of the baby so I insisted that she hide it for us.  The cake tastes like a cinnamon roll, but this one has an over the top cream cheese filling that luxuriously spills out when you cut a slice.  It also has the jewel colored sugar sprinkled on the top that crunches delightfully in your teeth.  Don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about because if you've ever eaten a Christmas Tree Cake (by Chef Little Debbie), you've caught the bug.  I do it as a toast to my teeth cleaning friends at the dentist so they can continue to live in style, I insist.  I will happily crunch the sugar bits against my molars until I have clickety clackety porcelain ones that I soak in a cup every night.  It will be worth it, I surmise.  We then read up on the history of the baby, and I was delighted to find that a baker once bought a surplus of porcelain babies that a traveling salesman was selling to put in the King Cake in place of the bean that was usually used.  It became very popular, and when he used all the porcelain infants up, he went with the cheaper plastic ones. I'm not from Louisiana so I'm not sure as to how true this is, but so says the Internet (there is a lot of fighting about whether the baby in the King Cake represents baby Jesus). If you know of another tale, do tell.  I like this traveling salesman story though so I'll keep that one if you don't mind?  

Yesterday my perfume samples came in, and I first tried Salome.  The first smell was awful to me.  It burned my nose, and it reminded me of Grandmothers at church.  It is strong, and it bowls you over.  After a while, I smelled my wrist again, and I enjoyed it.  It is still bold, but it's a nice vintage smell.  It's definitely not a daily wear perfume, though.  It's for a night out at the opera.  It's for the ballet.  Use sparingly, or you'll give yourself a headache.  Trust me, I know.  Of course I would have exquisite tastes, and I adored the sample of Note Vanillee that I tried this morning.  After testing it, I went online to see how much a full size bottle would cost, and it's a cool 235 bucks.  Around 10:30 a.m., I took a whiff of my wrist, and it had faded.  I couldn't detect it at all, and for almost 300 bucks, you'd hope it'd last longer.  The Salome is so pungent it would probably last for four days.  I haven't tried Confetto yet, but I'll report back when I do.  Rumor is that it smells like a better version of Dior's Hypnotic Poison which is my signature scent.  

At work, our office has been infiltrated by a gnat army.  We have been searching high and low for what's drawing them in, but fortunately, our Facilities department brought vinegar traps.  Then a curious student overturned one near my desk, and it smelled of vinegar all day.  He has scented the hallways, and a friend questions, "Why does it smell like cat piss everywhere in here?"  

At lunch, in the food court, I see a man who looks exactly like Charles Manson waiting at a table.  I can't stop staring.  I wonder if anyone has ever told him that?  I'm certainly not going to be the one to break it to him, but I can't help but feel both sorry for him and also repulsed even though he's done nothing wrong.
