a blonde assignment

Ali came down - we did her hair
Too many loose ends to leave out on Veteran's Day...
My Birthday is a better day for a Road Trip, anyways!

Blondes need to help each other 
when the call for "Roots" goes out! :p

What's a girl to do?

So we had a "hair party!"
Even Miss B came out for it!

LoCarb was the treat of the day!

Ali went LoCarb and has lost about 30 pounds so far!
Pretty good before and after

She says what everyone said:
LoCarb is great if you can get
through the first part!

Maybe I should take people out to the Grand Canyon
and hike with them through through the Induction Phase!
Like a LoCarb Preceptor of sorts.

It came out very nice!
More violet, less gold - more HighLights and LoLights.

Blonde. Jane Blonde.
007 is way too dark - 
We went with 10's and 12's!

I'm almost fearless now when it comes to doing color....

Everyone pitched in and helped me pack -
Cleaned house, did a little laundry -
Donated all my "Large" clothes

Made so much room in the closet, I feel empty now...
Plus, I wanted to hold on the the Large sizes ... Just In Case!
Then, I thought better of it!

Course, it helps to find a glove of money

Last minute packing for special needs diets
Don't expect to find what you can't do without!
Always take it with you, if you think you'll need it.

I always try to stay in a hotel with a kitchen
To help me stay on track with my food.
That way, I CAN go out to eat,
but I don't HAVE to. BIG difference!

It helps to pack the night before.
I'm actually looking forward to going!
Just a little hint of anxiety earlier today....
But I sometimes wonder if I can tell fear 
and/or anxiety from regular excitement!
For so many years, they were about the same to me!

Hope you are having the best day ever!
More tails tales from the road - coming soon!
