trip to Denver

Standard

Ryan has been working for this e-commerce company for over a year now. They are based in Denver and Ryan works for them at home. Recently, they’ve expressed interest in Ryan moving to Denver and working with them at the office. Ryan and I are seriously considering it and we took a trip out there to have a look around. Ryan flew out last Sunday to work a full work week and I flew out there Thursday night after work.

my colors

Standard

The first time I dyed my hair pink, I did it right on top of my light brown hair using Manic Panic’s Hot Hot Pink. I left it on for about 3 hours and it stayed pretty good for the first couple weeks but it faded fast after that and then there was a tinge of pink in my hair for the longest time. Eventually it all faded away…

Around Halloween 2010, I was ready to dye it again but not pink. Teal. And this time, I wanted to do it right. So, I bought a Bleach Kit. Ryan helped with the whole thing. The bleaching part was easy and it only needed to stay in for a total of 15 minutes or so. Ryan was little scared to get it on my skin so we had to go back in and bleach my roots near my ear and my widows peak. I didn’t hesitate at all putting in the color. I used ‘N Rage Twisted Teal and it was perfect! …for the first few weeks but it faded into this mint green type of situation. Not good.

alice has a conehead

Standard


Alice can be the sweetest, cutest, most amazing cat on the planet. but mostly, she’s a grumpy, whiny, cute little bugger. and we love her so very much no matter what kind of a mood she’s in. i think that’s why we have so many cuts and scars on our arms and hands. yesterday, we had our first scare with Alice. Ryan was packing for his trip to Denver (i will be meeting him out there on Thursday night), when it happened. we were playing with her on our bed using her favorite toy (it’s basically a fishing pole with a bunch of feathers at the end of a string instead of a hook). we both walked out of the bedroom and we left her alone with the toy. Ryan came back in first and noticed Alice was bleeding from her front inner leg. i rushed into the other room to see what happen but, unfortunately, we don’t really know what happen.

at this point, we were rushing around like crazy people. Ryan had to get to the airport and Alice had to get to the vet. turns out, vets aren’t really open Sunday nights but lucky for us, we have an After Hours Emergency Vet only 10 minutes away. Ryan shoved what he could into his backpack and we packed up Alice in her cardboard travel carrier (the one we got from the animal shelter). first, i dropped Ryan off and then Alice and i went the vet where we waited for 90 minutes.
