Finally!

This morning I weighed 0.2 pound over the weight I was before we left for our vacation in St. John. :-) Just in time for the Burning Man vacation... ;-)

Speaking of which, here's a photo of me trying out one of my special day-time costumes for this year:
I'm also going to try to get my hair to go red (fire engine red, not natural red) with a temporary hair dye. Trial run yesterday didn't work so well...most of it washed out on the strip I dyed. I don't want to bleach my hair before dying...just want to fade back to my natural color gradually (as this brand is supposed to do). I love my real hair color!! :-)

Had a great day yesterday doing fun prep for the trip, including walking a lot on the boardwalk shopping. Also spent a while boogie-boarding which was a blast because the waves were big and strong. Last night we saw District 9 (liked it, didn't love it).

Tonight we're going on a bike ride after work... :-)

cute dress!
I use to dye my hair red and it always faded fast, even with the permanent dye-Clairols Natural Instincts is marketed as semi permanent and fades quick-if your other stuff doesn't work out

Thank you, Sharla!!! I'll try that if what I have doesn't work! :-)

Oh my gosh, you are SO CUTE!

Congrats on the weight loss -- you always look fabulous!

I left you a thinking out loud comment over the weekend - when I realized that it was probably rude - I took it down - it really had nothing to do with you - it was ME mulling over weight loss blog trends in my mind. If I hurt your feelings I am very sorry.

No worries, Vickie! I think I know what you are talking about and I'm sorry you deleted it because I think it was good food for thought...and I was going to tackle it! ;-) I may just do that anyway...

You totally rock, Helen! The question is, is Burning Man ready for this jazzy you?

cute, cute, cute, cute, cute!

6 year old loved the outfit!

I thought everyone at Burning Man was decked out in long hand woven burnooses or something. Maybe space suits. Aren't you going to get terrible bad sunburned?

I know where you got those ears.

HAVE FUN, for me too.
