the day my computer said ‘I don’t think so’.

last night my computer may have taken her last breath. I’d know for sure, but I’m too scared to touch her. I’m not prepared to face the possible reality, yet. [thankfully I just backed up everything important. phew!].

in the meantime, I couldn’t be happier to have my lovely little nook tablet. it’s proving to be a lifesaver.

outside the weather cannot decide if it wants to be sunny or rainy. but while it’s working that out ..I’ll be inside, with the windows wide open. with my own decisions: to do or not to do a hair tutorial? and I’m also going to take a stab at baking a coffee cake, with my own twist. of course.


wish me luck. I’m extremely intimidated by baking. & by the thought of a video of me on the blog. it’s a day for disregarding comfort zones.

happy tuesday.

do something crazy!

hey curly hair!

Well today & tomorrow my office is CLOSED. [Happy Rosh Hashanah]. The doors may be locked and we’re not expected to show up ..but, I’m not Jewish, and either is my boss it’s a “work from home day” (tomorrow too). No complaints here! I can wear PJ’s, watch the Today Show, and work from the comfort of my own couch. LOVE!

After accomplishing MUCHO [obviously]. I got a bit distracted and found .. the Small Things Blog. (Kate – thank you for being my rainy day entertainment). To put it bluntly – I suck at hair anything. My mom was a hairstylist when I was younger and when she made a career change to real estate ..I still got the “hairstylist-mom-perks”. Basically when it comes to my hair, besides the basics [flat-iron, pony tail, half up w/ a clip] ..I’m clueless! And occasionally when I watch a hair tutorial on someone’s blog, I get adventurous, and give it my best attempt. [FAIL]. Well folks, I had almost given up. Thanks to Kate my hair will be getting the attention it deserves.

I’m a work-in-progress, but I tried the: half french twist. It’s not perfect, but meet my attempt …

from the back.

See – not perfect, but pretty darn good. [I think!]

 Let’s just say ..if I can do it, anyone can. What are you waiting for? Go meet Kate – the Small Things Blog :)
