Everybody's gettin' a new do!

So today, almost everyone in my house got a hair cut!

I decided to do something noticeable, but not too drastic.  I kept my length, but added some low-lights and bangs!  I haven't had bangs since 8th grade!  Kinda fun!  It's definitely going to take some getting used to, that's for sure.
My before & after shots.
Gus and Bailey decided to stick with what they know!  The Schnauzer and Westie cut!  I think they look adorable!

Biggest Loser 5K!

I love the Biggest Loser!

Starting on September 25, they are kicking off several 5Ks all over the country and their first one is here in Myrtle Beach!

And, the coolest part is---Bob is going to be here! The website says part of the race that day will air on a show in November. How Cool!?!

iPhone 4 Case Help!

I need help.

I got the iPhone 4 and since last Saturday have been carrying it around in a sock-a cute sock, but a sock.

These are the ones I'm deciding between:

This is made by Incase, it's the slider case. It's $34.95.

This one is the Feather case by Incipio. It's the same case I had for my previous iPhone. It's $24.99.

And these two are the cutest things I found on Etsy!

I LOVE this one!!!

Want This:

I have been watching 30 Rock Season 3 all day today. In most of the episodes, Liz has on this gold necklace with two "L"s.

I did a bit of research and found out that it's a Helen Ficalora Alphabet Charm.

I also found out they're $125 for each charm! Yikes!

She makes lots of other beautiful charms - I love the sea shell ones!

There's a lot of other options I've found on Etsy for much cheaper.

One, or maybe more, will end up on my Christmas list this year!

Because I love ya'll...

Ok so as you've probably guessed, I am head over heals in love with my iPhone.

I finally broke down and got the black 32GB iPhone 4. After 3 delays of the white one, I thought, forget it! I can't wait any longer!

I've been really enjoying the iMovie App! I totally was joking the other day that I'd be making movies of all the silly, mundane things I did.

Exhibit A:*

*Some notes to add:
  • Getting my eyebrows waxed doesn't hurt. I made the faces for dramatic effect.
  • Does anyone else's eyebrows turn/stay extremely red afterward? I have to put concealer, foundation, powder, etc. to even disguise the redness!

Who doesn't love a good pampering?

So last Friday, I took mom to get a mani/pedi with me.
It's been a while since she's been able to get one due to some health issues she's been having. We both really enjoyed it!

Mom got French on her fingers and toes!

I got Essie's Lapis of Luxury on my nails.

And OPI's Cajun Shrimp on my toes!

While in Columbia, Suzanne and Charlie took me to the cutest little cupcake bakery, ironic enough called Cupcake! It's downtown in the Vista and every day their cupcake specials change. They have other locations around South Carolina as well.

We were pretty excited to check it out!

I got the Black and White cupcake!

Suzanne got Praline!

We had a great time taking pictures!

Back half of the amazing weekend

We went to church Sunday morning and I got to see some of my bible study ladies!

After church we stopped at The Gourmet Shop in Five Points.

Holy Crap.

How did I not know about this place while I was living there?!

After that we hit up the frozen yogurt place! It was so yummy!

We ended the night with some of the guac I've been making ALL summer!
