I love old B&W photos

I can't wait for the weekend because Jimmy will for sure be home. Until then I'll be working hard attempting to get ahead with school which is what I plan on doing right after this post.

I recently came across a picture of my grandparents that my Uncle scanned. This photo was when they first started dating. Isn't it completely adorable? Gram I'm in love with your dress :) I plan on getting this picture retouched and  framing it when we get a house in the next couple months in California *happy jig*
This would be my Pupup and Gram ♥ 
Today I got to run again. I did my 4 miles the fastest so far. I sure that my weekend off healed my body greatly. I just made myself some rice topped off with crab. I honestly just feel great right now. Now what to talk about?

I've been thinking a lot lately about how I feel like I need to step it up being a girl. I think too many days have gone by without me doing my hair, putting makeup on or just brushing my teeth. I want to say that I have an excuse because Jimmy is gone but that's not the case. I need try harder, take pride and have confidence. Enough with this negative bullcrap.
Right right, moving on.

Here are something's GIRL that INSPIRED me today.

Who else loves being a girl? I totally do. Let's take some time for ourselves today. Even if its 10 minutes. Do something girly and remind yourself that you are beautiful.

Quick Question: I know nothing about hair dye. My hair is basically black right now but my darkish brown is coming back in the roots. I used box dye (I know *insert sad face*) when I dyed my hair darker.  I heard that using box dye isn't good if I wanna switch colors. My question...I'm considering going light brown. Is this possible? What will they have to do?

Go out and be inspired.

  1. i only did a brief stint at cosmetology school...
    BUT, i'm pretty sure they will have to do a color balance on your hair, and then they will have to lighten it.
    but, it should be able to work! :)

  2. HELLO cutest blog EVA! I loooooove your work here! Found you through the Tuesday blog hop! I'm now following this awesome-ness! Hope you will swing by and return the favor! Yeah for new friends!

  3. love the picture of the dress! so so pretty :)

  4. I love being a girl! Unfortunately, I find it hard to carve out time for showering every day, much less doing hair and make up. At least once a year I have the Marine Corps Ball to get dressed up for. :)

  8. Being a mom has made me lose some of my girly girl. I need to recapture that...going home tonight and painting my tootsies a bright pink instead of their current color of blue. Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. Love, love the picture of your grandparents, adorable.

    As for being girly I try to, hah. I'm really bad at it though. I have no sense of fashion and when I try it just doesn't come out right. I did paint my nails this week though!

  12. woo get those nails Fran! I did mine too but I painted them clear with that Sally Hanson strengthner. Does that count? lol

  13. I would go to the hair dresser for sure.
    Love being a girl...Oh i would love to have a dressing room like that and if my phone was like that my 3 year old would love it...to pull the pearls out LOL.
    Love it all :)
