Baby Log: 1 Year and 44 Weeks Old

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Party planning for Marlie's birthday 2.0 is in full swing! I have booked the entertainment: Noah's Ark Fluff-n-Stuff Animal Workshop (they have a zoo animal package that matches the birthday theme perfectly!). I have ordered the invites and fondant cupcake toppers! I am so geeked!

What else happened this week:
  • We've tweaked Marlie's summer camp schedule to 8:30-11:30 am so that she is not cranky when I pick her up because she is hungry and tired. Now she comes home, eats lunch and goes down for nap by noon.
  • We went to the Aquarium at Fair Park. Marlie loves fishes and she gaga for turtles.
I have some updates on me too! I am reading like a criminal with a life sentence (bad joke?) since I started trading books on swap.com. So far, I've read Ann Patchett's The Magician's Assistant. She is a very lyrical author. I look forward to her getting my paws on her new book State of Wonder. I also read American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld, which is structured as a fictional memoir of a First Lady of the United States. It was overall an interesting read, but too bogged down in mundane details like the type of mattress the First Couple slept on.

Yesterday, I visited Indira Salon in Carrollton for my complimentary KeraGreen treatment and style for my upcoming review and giveaway. I was very nervous since it's been three years since I've had my hair professionally done. A big reason I have avoided salons is because of my hair loss. While I knew a hair stylist would be discreet, I didn't want other patrons staring.

I could not have felt more comfortable at Indira. As soon as I walked in, I was warmly greeted by Beth, the proprietor, which put me at ease. My hair magician Tishia was uber-cool and did an excellent job as you can see in the after photo. The entire experience was A+.

If you live in the Dallas area, come back tomorrow for my complete review of Indira Salon (with lots of before and after photos), plus the giveaway for a color, cut and full makeup at Indira...who will the luck lady be?

    Nice how a small tweak makes a huge difference in attitude. Lewis is on that schedule at school and we maintain it on the weekends. When I don't keep to that schedule I always pay so I just consider myself unavailable from 11AM-3PM on the weekends.

    Love the new hair! Glad mommy got a chance to feel pretty. :)

    Wow! I love the hair! You looked great before also! Just two different looks. Is Noah's Ark Fluff-n-Stuff Animal Workshop like Build a Bear? Do they come to your party? So are you going to make the cupcakes and then put the fondant on top???
