To color or not to color...That is the question...

So here is what I'm thinking about.

I really want to get something close to my natural color that will cover up my gray and then add some highlights, but I don't know if I'm brave enough. Lord knows I've colored my hair enough times, but highlighting is a new one for me. I'm afraid it won't be very forgiving since my hair is so straight, and I don't want to look striped!

What do you think?

I Love This!!!

I'm so in love with Dr. Horrible!!!

I thought he wouldn't do this until he was a silly teenager...

So I looked down today and Finn has this terrible purple bruise on his arm. I started racking my brain to figure out how on earth he got it.

Could I have pinched his arm in the car seat?
Did I somehow squeeze his tiny little arm too hard when I was moving it out of the way to nurse him?

So naturally I felt like an incompetent parent and was sure that someone would see it and like call the state on me for abusing my tiny baby!

Then as I was snuggling him to burp him and he was sucking on his arm as he does quite often, I realized where his bruise came from.

That's right folks!

My six week old gave himself a hickey!
