Today, I went to a new gal to get my hair done.
The pool water had did it"s damage, in an attempt to make it look a bit better, my friend agreed to use a cap and we attempted to highlight it. Let's just say it looked like a trailer park blond with very dark roots still showing. I did nothing to it, until today. I used my b day money and went and had it done. Felt 100% better when I saw the end result!
New gal is a tri club member and she has a cute studio in her backyard that she has turned into her salon. Loved it.
She foiled three tones of dark blond into my hair ( a neutral, a gold and a red based #7), so I have 4 colors in my hair and it looks very subtle. I love it. She also cut it back into a bob.
I had grown it out for a year and really it just looked like a stringy mess. It actually looks longer, cut.
The salon was in the north county, so I decided to visit a few stores that friends who live up there talk about and I also had lunch at a place that calls itself a "farm to table" eatery
For 10.00, you choose a protein and 2 sides. They also have an option of 4 sides only, no protein, which is what I ordered. for my sides I chose;
Quinoa and edaname salad- (cold) also had shredded carrot, and onion in it
Kale orchard salad- kale, sliced fresh cherries and walnuts with balsamic vinegar
Roasted Brussels sprouts (yum!)
Rosemary red potatoes
All 4 of the sides were simple and delish! The all can be recreated, easily, at home. In fact on the way home, I stooped at Trader Joe's and bought bagged kale and cherries for the orchard salad ( have walnuts) and broccoli slaw, and edaname for the quinoa salad. It is too warm to turn the oven on, but I will roast Brussels sprouts too maybe at the same time as red potatoes, so I have some pre cooked dishes ready.
The price also includes a large rectangle of thick, crunchy, bread, which I brought home for someone else to eat and a "natural" soda. I choose the ginger one and it was good as well
I ate my lunch and still had over half left, so I brought it all home for lunch tomorrow.
my legs still feel like I'm hobbling on tree stumps. Tomorrow, I'm going to go to the pool during open swim and just float on a noodle and "cycle" under water, to help loosen them up
