3 Things for Monday

My neighbor asked what happened to my blog last week. Ummm.......

1. I ruined my hair.

The culprit.

I gave up coloring my own hair after several odd shade outcomes but decided to try it again because I was desperate to get rid of my roots. Note to all you hair DIY-ers - if you have red tones in your hair don't use semi-permanent color unless you are going dark. Every time I've used it my hair ends up orange. I'll be wearing a lot of hats until I feel it is safe to get my hair color fixed. And even though it makes me look kinda goth you may be seeing me with dark brown hair in the near future.

2. I watched all three seasons of BBC's Robin Hood in an obsessive kind of way.

I watched the first episode and stared at the screen slack jawed with a half grimace but decided to keep watching to see if it improved. It is not what you're used to but I think the quirkiness is why I ended up liking it. I showed my brother an episode and he exclaimed that it was "so hokey" but I was like "I love it!" (though I'm going to pretend season 3 never existed)
I used to run around my yard with a bow and arrow pretending to be in Robin Hood's gang so maybe I was going to like it no matter what. Also, what is with this photo? Why are all the hot guys clear in the back?

3. My "little" brother turned 23.

So cute.

His future FIL cooked the most amazing meal.

And that isn't even all of the food he cooked.

I'll try to be a bit more diligent this week. I do have several projects going but the dreary rain is keeping me from photographing anything.

Sorry to hear about your hair, the same thing happened to me when I first started dying my hair blonde. Go to Sallys or another beauty supply company by some lift volume no higher than 30 no matter what they say so a 20 or 30 volume life will do. Don't leave on your hair longer than 30 mins. You will litteraly watch the orange fade away. Then rinse. Should be good after that. Extremely important not to leave on to long or it will fry your hair. I had that happen to. Visit my blond and see my color if you like. I change my hair all the time, its dark brown and blonde is definately a hard color to get.

Bummer about the hair! :P
#2 made me laugh. :) I haven't seen the show yet, but I watched a ridiculous amount of Youtube videos one day. Richard Armitage--YES. Robin Hood seems kinda lame, especially since he OUGHT to be like the coolest guy ever. Guy seems to take that place in this version. :) I think that if I watched it all I would think it was hokey, also love it, and hate Robin and Marian and totally fall (even in love with Guy. ;)

I too watched all three seasons of Robin Hood in rapid succession (thank you instant watch netflix) and totally loved it! I love British shows for their quirkiness. Sorry about your hair! I have dyed my hair from a box probably a gajillion times and I think I had orange hair once, but I didn't really mind.
