strangers on a bus

scene from my bus ride home

he: stereotypical businessman, in all black, stuffy-ish
she: bright yellow short shorts, hole-y leopard print tights, roller derby-er

overhearing their conversation about iPhones and apps. they even swapped phones so they could check out each other's apps.

he: "wow, the wall street journal...I'm impressed"
she: "what, no music?"

it was pretty awesome. technology really can bridge all gaps and bring people together can't it? :)

hot lunch

this was my lunchtime view today.

the sun was out.

it was not cold
(not quite warm but I'll take what I can get.)

and I'm excited about whitney and suzy coming to visit for a girl's weekend! they arrive this evening and get to stay until monday. there will be much eating, walking and thrift store shopping.

thank goodness it's thursday almost friday!

back to basics

my walk on the wild side as a brunette was short-lived. it's hard to control shade and hue, it changes each time you wash. plus the financial outlay was too steep for me.

so it's back to blond for me.

oh, the price for beauty.

ah, everything is as it should be.

it's still a little redder/darker than I'd like but we had to do the re-color back in stages. this is the color of stage one. my next appointment should be the second and final phase.

ah, I think I just breathe easier now. :)

(ps: my stylist's response when I emailed her about going back to blonde, "it's about time." think she likes me better as a blonde!)

guess who's coming to dinner?

our military man is home!

it's only a two week leave but it's nice to know he's close if even for a short time.

he was supposed to fly in today at noon but surprised everyone and showed up last night. it was the best surprise ever!

welcome home tony.

we love you.

sunday sunny sunday

this weekend was all glory and sun and fun.

my friend carol's bridal shower on saturday followed by dinner with the girls at toulouse petit, a new restaurant on lower queen anne. FANTASTIC food! the parmesan grits will change your life.

and this afternoon brought peter and mandy for sunday dinner. the menu:
  • beef stroganoff with noodles
  • lilo's do ahead salad with avocado
  • trader joe's par baked bread
  • mandy's famous yellow cake with chocolate frosting
  • and lemon water served in the trusty gurgle pot

how lovely it all was.

I love paris in the springtime

it's been so non-winter-like here in seattle, its causing me dream about the flowers in the tuileries gardens and my dear tower.

I wish I were there. want to come with?
