Blue (the color, not the feeling)

Daniel and I went to a new restaurant this week, Aberdeen Barn.  It was pretty fancy with linens on the tables and the waiters dressed in vests and bow ties.  Earlier, I had gone to the gym, showered and changed into jeans and flip flops so I definitely felt under-dressed.  Oh well!

How romantic-al!

When we arrived, we admired the ambiance and chatted about the day.  Daniel and I placed our orders and then gave the menus back to our waiter.  Germs are yucky, so as soon as the menus are taken away, I always grab my hand sanitizer (menus are pretty disgusting).  Anyhoo, I'm leaning over and digging into my purse, and after rubbing the gel into my hands, I look up and see:

What? Why are you looking at me like that?

Look closer:


Daniel and I just celebrated our 6 month-aversary (?) and he surprised me with a beautiful piece of jewelry.  


A topaz necklace (I adore the color blue).  Isn't my husband sweet?!?  I think I'll keep him. 

Dinner was delicious!  Daniel had a grilled chicken breast, topped with lump crab meat and a Bearnaise sauce.  I had the most juicy, tender steak and fries.  I definitely wouldn't mind going back.

On Friday, I went bowling with a few Sorors and Frat (fraternity brothers).  It was fun and definitely nice to get out for a few hours.

Saturday, I went for my last workout at my old gym.

That's not sweat, ok?  Southern Belles perspire.  Get it right, please.

My contract ended yesterday, and today, I begin working out at my new gym:

I'm really excited because my previous gym was for women only and now Daniel can come with me to the new one (I can bring a guest every time that I go).  After he returns from his religious service, we're heading out!

Last night after the gym,  I washed my hair with Hair One again.  The bottle is beginning to get low so I'm trying to decide whether to continue using it.  I've used it 3 times now, and it's ok, but I'm not sure it's worth the money.  For each wash, you're to use at least 20 pumps of product. Basically, I'm going to need a new bottle every 6 weeks or so.  The bottle cost about $12.  My usual hair product is about $15-20 (depending if it's on sale), but it lasts so much longer.  I'm going to make a final decision after using the last of it on my next wash, but I'm leaning toward my old product.
