This weekend was full of new things…
★ On Friday, I finally had an appointment at the hair salon. After letting my hair grow wild for, oh only 5 months, I desperately needed a haircut. Seriously, it was not even funny anymore. To add a little extra sunshine, I went with some highlights in the ends of my hair and it turned out just beautifully. It’s not quite as copper-tone-ish as the Instagram picture wants you to believe, but it’s pretty. I ♥ it!
★ On Saturday, I very spontaneously decided that it was time to upgrade my cell phone to… a white iPhone 4! My old cell phone at three years was practically a “granny” and even though Internet-capable, not quite up to par anymore. (“Apps, what are those?) My upgrade had been due for over a year, but I had secretly hoped to hold out for the iPhone 5.
But, I am a girl and girls are weak (sometimes ;)). I had been eyeing the white iPhone 4 since it came out a few weeks ago, and my sister has one, too (and hey, we’re twins after all!), and it’s just so pretty, and to be honest: I just couldn’t wait any longer. I mean, who knows when Apple will finally announce the iPhone 5, right? That could be months and months away, for all we know.
No, the time was now. And it’s so beautiful (and I can’t stop thinking about all the new possibilities!)
★ On Saturday, I also got a surprise package in the mail. My dear friend Sanna sent me the “cassette tape”-necklace with the beautiful green bead that I am wearing in the picture. I had been telling her how much I loved the necklace in her Etsy shop and she just decided to send one to me – how sweet is that? Let me tell you, very, very, very sweet!!! ♥
★ We also went to Target and bought a new toaster. How we survived without a toaster for the last month or two, since I threw the old one out (it was just disgusting and totally gross, couldn’t even be cleaned to hold us over temporarily), I have no idea, but now we have a new one. It even has a “bagel” button. I guess, all new toasters now do. Fancy!
★ J got some new running shoes at Footlocker. How he manages to always pick out the high-end, expensive ones with blind determination is a mystery to me, but he does (and ok, they’re nice shoes, I admit it!).
★ One thing we didn’t get this weekend was a new shelf for our living room. I still have two boxes of stuff sitting in the living room that has no place to go right now, so I am thinking it’s going to be another visit to IKEA next weekend. I mean, nobody would complain about that! (Kim, are you coming?)
