Checking-in (a Re-post)

So, for whatever reason, Blogger looks like its coughed back up most of the posts it ate a few days back, but it didn't replace ours. So, for the sake of posterity, we're re-posting our last post. And hopefully, I'll have a new post for you soon. Thanks for your patience, everyone!


************************************************************************************************************************************


Hi, everyone! How are you all doing? I feel like I've been away for a while - work has been requiring quite a lot of travel lately (lots and lots of driving to do fieldwork), and the husband just started a new job this week. I'm...tired, haha. And I apologize for my spotty attendance here, lately. I've been running on emergency reserves lately (yes, it's been like that), so there's been nothing left for the blog. Spring is always a high intensity period for education research - lots of end of the year data collection going on as well as grant-writing.

Summer will be here soon, right? Soon. Until then, *deep breath*.

I drove out to Orange County today for work and stopped by Kathryn's office on my return trip, to drop off a (very belated) birthday gift. While I was there, we decided to snap our OOTDs together. It's a two-for-one!



Kathryn's wearing:
Dress: Refined Corduroy Dress (similar here and here)
Belt: Oh Hello Friend belt (similar here and here)

I'm going to aim for getting my hair out of a pony tail tomorrow. I'm not a morning person, so am always running behind. That, in combination with my poor hair grooming skills, means that once I find out I can get my hair into a ponytail (no matter how ridiculously short and silly it might look) I'll often wear my hair that way, six out of seven days, just because it's a quick and convenient way to style it. I have found the best way to prevent myself from falling into the ponytail rut is to keep my hair too short to fit into one.

But I don't know...I've been wearing my hair pretty short for a couple years now, and may be ready to grow it out again. What does everyone think? Should I keep it short and bobbed - or short and not-bobbed? Or should I let it grow out? 

These are the things that keep me up at night. I know, I know. It's a heavy burden to bear. I do my best. (Note to self: get some sleep before writing up my next post...)

  5. I love it when you girls get together. So cute. And Carol, I personally like it when you wear your hair in a pony tail. It shows off your pretty face :)

    Since I've seen you in a short hair, I'm curious to see you grow it out. I think you'd look good either way. *Knuckles* back at-cha. Kitty Power!

  7. Ooh, grow it out.  It's easier to chop it off at a later point.  At least that's what I tell myself!
