Happy Sabbath, Y'all!

Today's questions's are..

1. Hair color..Au naturale..or not?
Wellllll ... Not. 

But, sort of. 

See, when I became a SAHM about 7 years ago, I had to make a few financial concessions ... and coloring my hair was one of them.  I have super dark hair, but always put in highlights every 8-10 weeks.  (I am still mourning those highlights.  *tear slips down my cheek*  Sniff. ) Anyway, I've been completely au naturale since then ... until just one short month ago when I used a drug store color (light brown) to bring the dark down a notch ... and to hide the stubborn grays that are beginning to spring up on my scalp!  The color change is super subtle ... but the grays are gone!!!  Okay - so, there not technically GONE - but you can't tell they're gray under their brand new light brown dye job!  Hallelujah!!!

BTW - I have always declared that I'd go gray gracefully, proudly displaying my crown of silver ... but that was a load of crap (apparently).  My mom just turned 60 and is just now getting a few grays (seriously ... she has only a couple more than I do!), so I was under the impression that the silver crown was light years away. 

Sadly, this was not the case ...

Thanks, Dad.

2. If somebody has food in their teeth or lipstick on their teeth do you tell them?
Almost ALWAYS.  Even perfect strangers.  I promise I'm super sweet and tactful about it!!!  PROMISE!!!

3. Would you rather have a million dollars or your vision of the perfect body?
Million dollars. 

No contest. 

I've totally given up on the perfect body and am choosing (most days) to love the one I've got.  In my younger days, I had a great body ... and loathed it, only to appreciate it too late, so what good was that anyway?!  It seems that regardless of the bod I'm in ... it could always benefit from a little more tweaking (we ladies can be so fickle) ... so, I'm all about taking the green.

4. Favorite magazine?
This is a TOUGH one for me!  I subscribe to LOTS of magazines - at least 20 - and love 'em all for different reasons.  I used to be self-employed (a cute little bath boutique and 3 small jewelry kiosks) and received a professional rate for mags (cheap, cheap) ... that has yet to expire.  I always got lots of fashion/style mags to stay abreast of the style trends in jewelry - and to keep my finger on hot bath products.  However, to the fashion mags, I have added lots of home decor mags (a passion of mine) and most recently ministry mags that relate to my positions in children's and moms' ministry.  Soooo ... hmmm ... I'm thinking ...

I've narrowed it down to two:

 5. Bra style..lacy or plain?

6. If you walked into Victoria's Secret..would you most likely come out with something sexy or comfy?
Both ... all in one.  Comfy is a MUST for me, but I like to look good while I'm feeling comfy! 

7. Do you fake and bake?
Nope!  I have - pre-prom, pre-wedding, and pre-vacation - but no more!  However, in the summer, I love nothing BETTER than soaking up the sunshine.  LOVE, LOVE!!!

8. What's your favorite body part on a man?
I love shoulders - BROAD, STRONG shoulders.


  1. Stupid gray hair! I usually only tan before certain events too.

  2. We were each others 31st followers :o) I wish everyone would tell each other if they have something in their teeth. I hate realizing I have something between my two front teeth and I have talked to a million people throughout the day and no one mentioned anything!!!

  3. OOOO - I love summer sun, too. Doesn't it just make you have spring fever to think about it???

  4. I kinda laughed through your answer, it's funny how we think we'll do one thing and then change our minds once it happens!! I am DYING for Spring and sunshine right now! :)

  5. Hey, KA - come over to my blog and pick up an award!
