The Military Ball 2014, Part #1 — Get Ready With Me

DSC01722

Some of you may remember the Military Ball from last year. If you do, you’re my favorite.

In case you aren’t filled in, every year there is a Military Ball. My older brother is a merchant marine. Thus, he is invited to these military balls, providing us with the opportunity to spend a lot of money and join him. So we do.

Last year, it was just my brother and I. This year, we both had dates.

Ah yes, moving up in the world.

New Hair! — Ombre

I recently wrote an article on how to talk yourself out of cutting your hair. That was dear to my heart, because I too was tempted to go for a “cute, short Christmas haircut,” just to mix things up.

I did talk myself out of it, luckily. However, I decided on an ombre instead.

I was telling my coworker about my hair ideas when she mentioned her sister. “She’s in school now, so I bet you she’ll do it for cheap.”

Polite follow-up question: has she done it before?

$11 Thrift Haul

Because I needed to do something to blog about, I just had to go out and spend money. You guys practically forced me. I had to. I had no choice.There was also a 50% off sale. On the whole store.

Overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed. I’m still overwhelmed!

The truth is I had work for seven hours Saturday morning and didn’t feel like spending the rest of my now-free Saturday stuck at home. My family said there was a sale at the thrift store. I couldn’t believe we were still lounging about the house! We all got dressed, I put what I thought was around ten dollars of tip money in my wallet, and we sped on down to our favorite thrifting spot, eyes wide, lips licking, and rubbing our hands together in excited anticipation.
