song of the day: 'red headed woman' by bruce springsteen
k, so if you follow me on twitter, you may have heard that on friday i colored my hair. this marked the first time i've ever had an all over color. and I LOVE IT!!!!!! it came out just perfect. i wanted a dark auburn that would go well with the season but also not be so great a contrast from my natural brown to be odd or ugly between colorings. i am just smitten with it. it makes me feel sassy. and i think my eyes look more blue and i one thing i'm super proud of are my blue eyes.
yesterday was a super busy day. i began the morning running in a 5k race that started literally outside my front door. it was a great atmosphere and a great cause. it was a race to benefit families who want to adopt by giving them grants to help pay for all the fees associated with the adoption process. this was the second year and the family who got the grant from last year, was there with their new baby. it was pretty cool. plus, i was the second female finisher! i almost got first, but it was a friend of mine who passed me at the end and i just couldn't hold her off. it was a great race and i felt good and ran my fastest time ever. about 22 minutes. the actual course measurement was off so we ended up running 3.4 miles instead of 3.1 so that's why i don't know my real 5k time. but it was so awesome, i was just picking people off while running. that's my favorite: start in the middle of the pack and just beat everyone out on the course. it was fun.
then i went to visit my mom. it was a pretty sweet time with her. she will probably go home from the hospital tomorrow or wednesday and i can't wait to see her at home again! i feel like it's been so long.
then i went to a birthday party and then home. i had a glass of wine and then fell asleep on the couch. i was exhausted after such a busy day. so today, i am just relaxing. sunday's are so good for that. hope you all had a good weekend!
