Impromptu 3 Day Weekend

:::1::: Diet Bet: I just joined a new game for diet bet with Kym and I'm pumped to get started. It doesn't begin for another 24 days, so it is the perfect diet bet game to start the new year off with! Come join the game. It is really simple, you put $25 in the "pot" and if when you lose 4% of your body weight in one month, you split the pot with anyone else who lost 4% of their body weight. 

To put that into perspective, I lost 4% of my body weight in the very first week at weight watchers, that is how easy this is to win the moolah! 

:::2::: No one talk to me about Bowl Games. I don't want to hear about it. In case you didn't notice, my Vols are not bowl eligible so you can take your bowl game and stick it up your... back trunk.

:::3::: My BIRTHDAY present came.... Here is a sneak peak!


:::4::: Thanks to the ice storm, I finished all of my Christmas shopping for my friends this weekend. The mall was empty and I had Kate Spade, Anthropologie and Nordstrom sales all to myself! It was glorious. I think I'll stop complaining about living in an apartment since I was able to pull my warm car out of the garage, drive a quarter of a mile to a completely cleared off highway, then had a straight shot right to the mall! 

:::5::: Got my hair done on Sunday! Don't worry, I didn't get a Keratin treatment. Just cut and color! I loved the way it turned out. When I first moved to Dallas, I just happened to find the two most amazing hair stylists at Toni and Guy at the Dallas Galleria Mall. I got cut and color and of course straightened and styled, all for only $100. I'm used to spending $250+ for those kinds of services back in Knoxville! Here is a little before, during and after pictures for you! Why do they make you look like you stuck your finger in a socket when they do your color?


:::6::: And you know I snuggled all weekend with my babies to keep warm!

 :::7::: Go Cowboys. #MNF (Oh, and don't forget your Drinking Game for MNF tonight!)

  6. Your hair looks soo good! I was used to paying less than 70 for a cut, color, and blow-dry (not exactly a "style") and then I moved and now I pay over $100 and I hate it! But yikes $250 is crazy!

    Did you hear... I think Auburn is going to some kind of bowl game, but I can't remember which one........
    Hahahaha, sorry I couldn't resist! Maybe next year!

  12. Your hair looks soooo good! I need to get a haircut/color in the worst way. Holding out til after Christmas though.

  13. Any girl who can rock bangs are awesome in my book. And can we agree that you found a miracle in the service pricing?!

  14. Ok, first things first, you look freaking amazing with your new cut and color. LOVE IT. Also, congratulations with your first week on WW!!!!!! I swear by the program and so I'm pretty much doing jazz hands over your success with it! Diet bets are a great way to get your butt in the gym and watch what you are doing, because who can't use some extra cash, right? I'm thinking about signing up for their total 6 month transformation bet and reading your post pretty much pushed me in the GONNA DO IT camp.

  15. Ahhh your hair looks great!!! And I totally love your MNF drinking game. But my drinking game looks a little more like "Take a drink everytime something good happens to the Cowboys" and "Take a bigger drink and throw something across the room when something bad happens to the Cowboys"... yeah, that's pretty much it ;)

  26. Love your new hair!!! I'm suddenly wanting bangs... We'll see if I get the courage to chop them ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm so lucky! I get my hair coloured and cut for... $50.00 I think my hairdresser must have a crush on me or something. She always gives me a great deal!!

    Not to brag, because $100 is still really good in reality. Clearly my hairdresser and I are in a fantasy land where things are incredibly affordable.

  28. that sounds like a perfect weeknd! and how did i miss this fabulous hair?! i love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your hair looks amazing!! $100 is a really good deal! Also, along with DietBet, have you ever heard of the app Gym Pact? I have never used it but a friend has and she loves it! Basically it's the same type of idea to where you earn/lose money based on the amount of times you went to the gym that week - it uses your GPS in your phone to verify if you went. Sounds pretty cool!
