This morning I knew there would be no one in the house to wake me up before 7 so what did I do? I woke up at 6:20. I was able to get back to sleep at around 6:50, then woke up with the alarm at 7:10. Oh well.
Will and I had quiet(!) conversations while we cooked up breakfast for two...
|1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 cup water, strawberries, bananas, Ezekiel cereal sprinkle, fried egg with salsa|
...then I was off to the salon for my hair appointment. I snapped a picture right before I went in.

I gave the hairstylist free reign, although I did tell her I didn't want anything I'd have to do frequent upkeep on because let's face it, I'm not going to be getting into the salon every 4-6 weeks.
I spent most of the morning looking like this:
|Safe from the aliens and satellites|
and when I was done, I forgot to take a picture :-(
So here's one I just took now....I am suffering from a bad case of yellow lighting so you can't see my highlights at all but you can see the haircut. I'll post another picture tomorrow when I have access to natural light.

Next it was time for some major shopping! We hit Sephora, White House Black Market, Oakley, Teavana, Icing, H&M, Ann Taylor (both Lofted and non) and looked around a bit in Nordstrom. I didn't buy things EVERYWHERE we went because the plague of sack-like dresses and neon was just as bad in person as it seems online, but we both found what we were looking for. I really like the Columbia Mall, they have pretty much every store I would want!

Plus this guy!
Despite the rain it was a great day with fun visiting, food and shopping like I haven't done in years! My plans haven't allowed for exercise for the past 2 days though, so I am anxious to get back to my normal schedule and spending more time with my girls. At least until I leave for my sister's bachelorette this weekend!
