I’ll Have an Ombre Kind Sir

I’ve run more this week than I have in a long time and I’m kinda loving it. Thursday, I did a speed run just like Monday’s run and yesterday I did a 6 mile tempo run. Five of those miles were at a 9:05 pace. Sure, there might have been a “special delivery” at mile 2 and a walk to chug water at mile 3, but I haven’t been able to run at that pace for that many miles in I don’t know how long. I know one week’s worth of speed work couldn’t have increased my pace already, so maybe it’s giving me a little more confidence that I’m able to run faster?

Anyway, staying true to form, I watched another TV show that I’ve never seen before during my run: Kourtney and Kim Take New York. I didn’t think it was possible for me to dislike Kim K more than I already do, but turns out – it’s possible.

The girl is annoyingly dumb and selfish. I used to feel bad for Kris Humphries, but turns out, he’s just as dumb as she is. It bothers me that she’s famous. But enough about that.

Today, I had a salon appointment. I fear getting my hair done now, especially since the last appointment turned out so well. I went to yet another new stylist and wanted to get my hair highlighted to look like something I had in the past. Unfortunately, this was the only good picture I could find of my hair.

Definitely not awkward showing that to a stranger.

Anyway, after talking to the stylist for awhile and telling him how I wanted the highlights to show more on the bottom, he told me it sounded like I wanted “the ombre.” Not to be confused with “Hombre.”

After my Friends flashback, I realized he was serious. That’s the name of a type of hair coloring. I say, if it’s good enough for Jessica Biel and Rachel Bilson, it’s good enough for me.

So I decided to get ombre’d instead. (By the way, you know you need your bangs cut when your heterosexual male friend tells you that you look like a sheepdog.)

I like it. Although, I think it’s time to grow out my bangs again. (Hear that, Chris?)

After my appointment, I met hubs at Boardwalk Bowl. He was there with a couple of our friends, Steve and K, for a charity event put on by a rock radio station here in Orlando. (We know one of the DJs). Steve is not a fan of bowling. Or pictures.

By the time I got there, they had already played 3 games so I just decided to watch instead of play. Hubs ended up buying $50 worth of raffle tickets since all the money went to charity. He was really excited when one of his raffle numbers was called because he finally won something. Or lost, depending on how you look at it.

A bowling pin painted like a football and signed by all the DJs at the radio station. Just what we wanted.

I’m off to find the perfect place for that bowling pin in the back of the closet.

  1. I’m a new reader, but you should know that your blog makes me laugh every time!

    Also, your “hombre” comment reminded me of Will Ferrell’s new movie… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZxJJnuhCZc
    Have you heard of it? Actually, I’m still trying to figure out if this is really coming out or just a giant practical joke. Haha.

    I’m not usually a fan of the ombre look – I mean why pay money to get your hair colored so it looks like you are showing off your roots – but it looks cute on you. And yes, that was a compliment. Ha ha.

    • Yeah, I didn’t like it the first time I saw it. Maybe on Drew Barrymore? I think there are good and bad ombres. I don’t like when the whole bottom half of the hair is a different shade. (Like Rachel Bilson, even though she’s super cute.)

  3. Worst prize evaaaaa. And I must share that ‘ombre’ is French for shadow. Word. I mean mot.

  4. I love your hair! I think it looks fabulous. Maybe I could pull off the ombre. Doubt it. Show him you are the baddest hombre west of lingerie! Happy Sunday. Hope you’re doing something fun! I don’t want this weekend to end (R-E-Rebecca Black).

  5. Way to kill it on those runs this week. Nice to have a week like that after a race, ya know?

    And I love the ombre look on you! I made an appointment with a new stylist for this week and I’m hoping they can cut my hair so I look halfway decent. Not walking down the coloring plank just yet, but perhaps soon.

  6. Your hair looks great! I actually had no idea that people went in asking for this look though, I always just figured they were letting it grow out. ha!
