Is that a haircut you see? Why, yes. Yes, it is. I hadn't gotten it cut since early summer, so I figured I was due. Fortunately, my friend Casey works at a salon (which also happens to be owned by best friend and her boyfriend Adam's family) and gives me a major discount. And by major discount, I mean that she cuts my hair for free and I bring her Starbucks. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to hair (and make-up, nails, and all things girly other than clothes for that matter) so I pretty much just let her do whatever she wanted to it. She ended up going shorter and a little fuller on the bangs, cutting off a couple of inches, and giving me more layers. My hair grows ridiculously fast, but I'm hoping it stays like this for a while since I'm extremely happy with the result.
If I seem a tad more dressed up than normal, it's because this is what a wore to a wedding reception a couple of weeks ago that I finally got around to taking pictures of yesterday. A family friend had a tiny wedding ceremony over the summer with just family, and they finally had a bigger reception at a restaurant recently. It wasn't super fancy, but it did give me an excuse to put on heels, which is a rarity. I should add that it's definitely too cold to be going sans tights at this point, but it's still not too cold to do it for a little while for photos. California is weird.
The last few days have just been spending more time with friends while my friend Kyle was in town visiting. This weekend is going to be crazy, what with two Christmas parties, a birthday party, and my brother coming back into town, so I've taken the last day or so just stay home and catch up on some TV. The only problem with things getting hectic is that it leaves almost no time for going to the movies, and there's almost too many out that I've yet to see. I need to see Foxcatcher, Inherent Vice, The Theory of Everything, Wild, Whiplash, and a few more. Someone come hang out with all of my friends and family so I can be antisocial and go to the movie theater instead. Thanks.
