Weekend Recap

My experiment in blondiness? FAIL. There's some chemically valid explanation, like the developer didn't activate or some such thing, but all I can tell you is that my hair is the exact same color today that it was last week. Which is fine because I'm fine with that hair color. But I was feeling sort of excited about a change. So. Whatever. We could have redone it on Sunday, but I had a pumpkin carving party to go to, so I just left it as is.


I drove up to Chico on Friday with Gabeypants, whose jewel of a father picked him up on Saturday and kept him overnight. I was supposed to see Sheena, who fell off the face of the planet, and my cousin Lisa, who...also fell off the face of the planet. I was also supposed to see Stella and Darci. And I did.

Gabers and Leo got to spend some quality time loving on each other.


I suspect he had fun.


Stella and I went out and had an adventure. I was still redheaded, and slightly intoxicated.


Although Stella may have been moreso.


We had a great time and somehow ended up out long past closing time, haggling with vague acquaintances about a ride home. I woke up the next morning grumpy and dissatisfyingly hungover. The situation was not improved by K.Dot's wishy washy pickup plan. It was, however greatly improved by this:

People let me tell you 'bout my best friend!

And this:


My whole family came up to the Davis/Woodland area for my brother's girlfriend's sister's annual pumpkin carving party. My dad taught the littles how to play baseball, Duncan and James helped them carve pumpkins, Daniel took them to the park, I ate a lot of food. I love my family.


  1. I approve of Leo's shirt in a very big way.

  2. I'm in love with Gabriel's rainbow shoes. Do they come in a women's 7? Somehow I don't think they'd look as cute though.

  3. I love, love your hair, but you already know that. Those boys hugging each other is about the cutest thing ever. Your friend grabbing her crotch? About the realest thing I've ever seen. Who's on first?

  4. Wow Stella was intoxicated. Thanks for the picture. The one of Gabe and Leo hugging is so adorable. Awww, kids.

  5. It's a bummer that the haircolor didn't stick. I like the redhead look, but it would be interesting to see you as a blonde.

  6. maybe your hair is resistant to dye? I know on the boxes it always says something about gray hair being resistant and having to leave it on longer. My daughter's hair fades very quickly. Some people's hair just doesn't seem to get along with chemicals.

  7. Great pictures. Adorable kids. Your hair looks great as is...but I can see why you'd have wanted the darn dye to work!
