ANNIVERSARY to Juana & Lawton!
Cin, Matty, Aric, Wey, Ashlyn, and I spent the day at The Block in
Orange. We enjoyed a nice outdoor lunch at Wolfgang Puck Cafe, and
walked around and shopped. I was hoping to buy some clothes for my
upcoming trip, but didn't have much luck finding anything I liked.
I noticed that my style in clothes have changed a lot. I came out
empty-handed from all the fun trendy fashion stores I used to frequent,
and discovered a peak in interest in such stores as Ann Taylor Loft.
Something happened while Cin and I were perusing Windsor. Three women
(whom I caught pointing at me from across the room) approached me.
Like any stranger or random persons who approaches me, I automatically
assume they're going to ask me to buy something, join something, fill
out a survey, or give a donation. It was something like that, but
they turned out to be stylists for Rusk
and were interested in cutting my hair.
I explained that I just recently got my hair cut and wasn't interested.
I don't exactly remember what they said, but they basically implied
that the cut I got last week was blunt and awkward and that they can
"fix" it. That made me feel a bit self-concious...like,
"wha?....what's wrong with my hair?"...so I asked them
what they would do to "fix" it. They proceeded to explain
that they would blend the layers so it didn't look so chunky and add
style to the hair so it would require less maintenance. <---With
that said, I was pretty much sold. Especially since for the past week,
I've been struggling with the hairdryer and curling iron to style
my hair (and each time I do it, it turned out a little different than
the day before). I made an appointment for tomorrow. I'm feeling a
bit antsy about it.
The rest of the afternoon was more walking around and window shopping.
Aric, Matty, Cin, Ashlyn, and I stopped by Marukai for groceries before
we headed home.
made sushi-bar for Matty and Cin for dinner. Brian and Grace came
by and joined us. Poor Grace accidentally left her purse and coat
here last night, and didn't realize it until they made it back to
Stevenson Ranch! So they had to make another trip down here.
I can't tell you how bad your memory gets after you have a baby. I
think it's mainly due to the fact that you have more on your mind
and you're carrying much more in hand (ie...baby, infant carrier,
diaper-bag, etc...). Right after Ashlyn was born, I would leave my
purse at restaurants all the time. That, and feedings...I would forget
the time of her last feeding or confuse it with the day prior. *UGH!*
I'm better now. hehehe
and Grace couldn't stay long... they had a long day and a long drive
back. Brian look visibly beat.
Matty, and I watched TLC's new makeover show, "What
Not To Wear". That show is pretty brutal. The two fashion
consultants (Wayne Scot Lukas and Stacy London) viciously rip on the
targeted person (Eileen). Luckily she was a pretty strong person.
Secretly I wish someone would nominate me to be on that show, but
honestly speaking, I don't think I can handle the critisms. =P *Darn!*
After putting Ashlyn to bed, we stayed up and watched "The Barbershop"
on DVD, then "The Anna Nicole Smith Show" on E!.
Paul Hogan (the Butler from "Joe Millionaire") was on and
they were doing a dating selection process much like "The Bachelorette"
on "The Anna Nicole Smith Show". A reality show within a
reality show....WEIRD! What made it even more weird was that Brook
(the disgruntled bachelor from "The Bachelorette" was one
of the eligilble bachelors vying for Anna Nicole's affections. What
a total Man-Whore! The BEST part was when the three bachelors
gave Anna Nicole a parting message before she made her final decision,
and the Brook-guy jacked it up by accidentally calling Anna Nicole
by Trista's name! *FALLING OVER LAUGHING!* HAHAHAHAHAHA! Is that
whacked or what?!
cold's getting worse. The glands in the back of my throat arre sore
and I feel congestion building up in my chest. *sniffle sniffle*.
Goin' to bed.
