Two Hippie Chic

A gathering of pretty things, lovely links and loads of fun brought to you by two hippies.

Not cool

I woke up at 6:30 this morning, shot out of bed and said “OH NO!”

Because I thought the clock said 8:30, meaning both I was late for work/Russell was late for class.

I don’t usually get up until about 7…7:15 depending on how many times I press snooze.

That was not cool.

When you are out there in the world, and you meet someone and you tell them that you go to Virginia Tech, and they say, “Oh, isn’t that the school where….” - you interrupt them right there and say, “Yes, it is the school where we have some of the best academic programs and professors in the United States.” That’s what you tell the. You tell them, “Yes, it’s the school where students are passionate about serving their country and supporting each other.” You tell them, “Yes, it is the school where we produce graduates who are leaders in their industries, pillars of their community, who vary their Hokie pride with them every day for the rest of their lives.” You say, “Yes, that is the school I attend. That is Virginia Tech” - Michelle Obama 

And yes, the First Lady really did say this. Fact checked.

Love

One of my favorites.

kimbaland replied to your post:My list of names:
When you yell at a dog 2 syllables is easier than 3, though Paw Revere is preetttty funny.

This is the exact same thing Russell said.  I also want to name something that goes well with Jackson, since this will be his brother from another mother.  My favorite right now is Jackson & Hudson.

My list of names:

  • Fisher
  • Porter
  • Hudson
  • Toby
  • Duke
  • Atticus
  • Tank
  • Paw Revere

Thoughts?  I can’t stop laughing at that last one.

Hi, apparently you all care as much as I do about my hair (thank you for the messages!!).  I wasn’t going to post a picture because it feels greasy/I can’t wash it until tomorrow, but whatever.  Here’s the new hair.  I’m getting used to it…it’s lighter (and like 3-4 inches shorter), but apparently I’m the only one that has noticed because NOT A DAMN PERSON has said anything at work.  

Kthanksbye.  Vain posts over.  Sort of. 

(I added a before with shitty lighting, so basically I’m not sure what the point of this post is.)

PSA: A bunch of Clinique makeup is 10% off at Nordstrom

This…never happens?  I needed to buy some more powder and noticed this.  Probably going to throw something extra in my cart because makeup is literally never on sale.

(I never go to the store to buy makeup until I get more tan in the summer and need another color.  Such a hassle.  Forever an online shopper.)

Go forth and buy stuff

Update: meredithisaleo said: All makeup is 10% off during friends & family! Yay!  SERVICEY!!  Also, this is dangerous. 

Ugh

I went to bed incredibly grumpy last night.  I FELL OFF a contraption at crossfit (my fault, I wasn’t paying attention), and bumped my head/face.  I’d had a headache ALL day, I was tired and hungry and the new hairdo is still growing on me.

But mostly I think I didn’t want today to come.  Love to all my Hokies today.

I did not know I’d have to sit like this for 50 min.

First hair dyeing experience is tomorrow

I know I need to buy special shampoo and conditioner from here on out (I loved you, Redken all soft. I’m not to ready to part).

What kind do you recommend?

(My salon sells Paul Mitchell stuff and I’ve never liked anything I’ve ever tried from that brand so I’m going to get stuff elsewhere).
