As If The Parking Garage Wasn't Bad Enough

I have traveled the trip to and from my local airport hundreds of times, but I've only actually driven myself two times.  Three if you count this week.  I hate parking garages.  You may remember my story about it here, but to recap, I think there are rapists and serial killers hiding under the cars just waiting to grab my feet as I walk by.  I wonder if this has anything to do with my brothers hiding under my bed and grabbing my feet after a marathon of Nightmare on Elmstreet?  Anyway, I had to take myself this week and just as I was starting to relax that no one was crouched down in the back of my car waiting to attack, I paid my parking fee and this creepy smiley face popped up....

And I might have heard some sinister laughing off in the distance.  Parking garages suck.

Back To Blonde

For the last six months I have revelled in the roots of my being (I let my hair be its natural color).  Natural hair led to long hair (too long) and very little styling.  I was Queen of the middle part and the occassional bobby pin. 

Last week I decided to lighten up - literally and figuratively.

And you know what?  I feel great and I've had a fabulous week!  If you're reading this, you should go get highlights.

I'm pretty sure when the bible says "Go ye therefore and teach the nations...." this is probably the kind of thing it's referring to.   Probably.
