This morning, I got up at 7:30am, which is super early for a Saturday. I got a shower and got ready to go to my hair appointment. When I arrived at the salon, she was the only one there. I was glad to see her. I sat in the chair and told her I need to go a bit darker. My hair was too light at the root. I wanted darker roots, like the time before last. I told her the color washed out too quickly. She understood and mixed my color. Then when she was applying it. I knew it was the right mixture because my head was itching!
While the color was setting in, we chatted about my job, the holidays, her kids, and etc. When she washed my hair out, she also waxed my eyebrows, then she blew my hair dry, and styled it. We decided not to cut it this time since we cut it last time and I am trying to grow it out.
After my hair appointment, I went to my parents to see my dogs. I missed them so much. I couldn’t wait to see them. I played with them for a bit, then went with my mom to get our nails done. We stopped for coffee along the way. Once we got to the nail salon, I couldn’t decide if I wanted a full set, SNS, or Gel. My mom was getting SNS. I let her go first. I did love SNS, but I ruined them when I was helping Anthony and Ray move the couch, and since they were a dark color, I wasn’t liking how they looked as they grew out.
When my mom was finished, the nail tech; Amanda worked on my nails. We decided a little bit of tip to create some length, then the clear gel dip powder, along with gel polish. I love my nails. I have a gold glitter accent nail on my ring finger, but every other nail is Pink. I knew if I got red I would hate it after Christmas, eventually soak them off. I didn’t want that.
After the nail salon, we went to Hanlon’s for breakfast where we met my Dad. I was already so tired. I didn’t want to go to the Christmas party tonight, but I felt so obligated to go. Poor Drew was running around all day for Christmas. He was getting last minute gifts, and we still have a bit to do.
After breakfast, I went home to Drew. He had the dip all made and told me got a Save-the-Date in the mail for a wedding in April, and more Christmas cards. I was just happy to be home. He loved my nails and my hair.
When it was time to leave for Leanne and Dan’s we had to stop at Sheetz and bought drinks and chips for the dip. I really didn’t want to go to this party. I picked up two ring pops for Maci. I know she likes them.
When we arrived at Leanne and Dan’s, George and Sharie were already there. Jada was there with her little friend, and Leanne was in the kitchen washing dishes and not ready at all. I didn’t know why I was so surprised to see that. I helped her get things ready and heated up my dip. I just wasn’t in the mood at all, but I tried to sound festive.
Andrew and I ate a little bit of the food, and I had one beer. I just wasn’t feeling the atmosphere. I talked to my ex’s brother, Shawn. It always makes it awkward for me to see him. I don’t have feelings for my ex, it’s just he symbolizes a lot of the drama that I went through with my ex and his family, but Dan (Leanne’s Husband) is friends with my ex and his brother.
Throughout the evening, we played several games of Mad-Libs, but they all gave like nasty and sexual references. They kept asking me what is an Adjective? What is a noun? What is a verb? What is an adverb? I was like oh wow guys!
Drew and I left around 9:30pm and went home and watched the rest of Office Christmas Party, and I put some laundry in. I was just happy to be home, but I knew I wasn’t going to stay awake too much longer.
