sorry about that.
garrett finished his quarter (and is OFFICIALLY a senior. can i get a hallelujah?!) last week and was left with some days with nothing to do.
so we made a last minute decision to head up to South Carolina. our reasons for this trip were three fold:
1. garrett and i were wanting to go to the temple and our closest one is in south carolina. it's hard to find time to go while he's in school and working, so this spring break was a perfect time.
2. i have a sister that lives in south carolina and i get a "when are you coming to visit me?" text/call from her on the reg.
3. gilly lost her mind. absolutely lost it. 3 months of being stuck in the house with me (carless and unable to drive her to the dog park)seriously made her snap. she would start crying the second she woke up and continue to do so until i would let her outside. and the second she got outside, she would jump our fence and run like the wind down the sketchy alley behind our house. several times she ran across the street, not stopping to check whether cars were coming or not. it nearly gave me a heart attack. and several times i would have to run (usually in my pajamas or a robe or some other weird outfit because i spend every day in my house and no one sees me..)down that same sketchy alley, screaming her name and hopelessly trying to catch up with her. seriously, several times a day. it was getting old. and very apparent that gilly needed to take a trip to see her cousin Winnie and run in open fields and rivers and creeks and get an incredible amount of energy out. and incredibly muddy and dirty.
|sharing is caring.|
|have you ever seen so much neck?|
and gilly only cries when she wants winnie to wake up and play with her.
we're going to the temple tonight and i've spent a large part of my time here trying to get my sister's hair right.
having never done it before, she thought it would be fun to be blonde. not highlighted blonde. all over blonde.
but she mostly just looked like a mermaid. even with a color remover and some heavy ash toning.
|before. this was a semi-faded ombre. though you can't tell.|
|this was the after mermaid.|
so we went back to a delicious chocolatey brown which has not yet been documented. but i will. and you'll see just how delicious it is.
side note: i love kenra. amazing quality stuff.
so that's that.
that's why i've been so MIA.
i've been letting my gilly pup run free for some days and my cheeks hurt from smiling. i just get really happy when she's happy. and she's happiest when she's a wet, muddy mess.
i hope your week was just as fun!
