She Bangs, She Bangs.....

Anyone else remember William Hung?

Ahh, the good ol' days before American Idol lost it's spark! But that's another subject for another post..... Anywhoodle, this guy pops into my head whenever bangs are mentioned!

Onto a much more pleasant form of bangs, what girl hasn't looked upon Zooeys quirky style and fantastic hair with out a twinges of jealously? I know I'm guilty!

I'd see picture after picture of her hair on Pinterest and try to talk myself into cutting my bangs like hers, but would always chicken out for one reason or another!

But as summer approached and my bangs began to look like this....

.....more and more. I decided to take the plunge and see if hipster bangs wouldn't work better then my current light fringe.

Long story short, I found the video below, screwed up my courage, took the plunge and couldn't be happier with the results!

I can put my hair up without looking like a peeled onion.....
(Yes, that's all bangs and I did my point a little farther forward then the girl in the video, I just have a massive amount of hair! So if you try it for yourself, you most likely won't get bangs this thick!)

 .....and they blend much better into my hair when it down! =)

Next up on the hair department, my older sister is coming in early June and we are going to attempt to henna our hair! I'm crossing my fingers the color doesn't come out orange, unlike every other time I've tried dying my hair!

 Has anyone out there tried henna, have any thoughts or tips? ;-)

Have you tried anything new with your hair recently? I'd love to hear about it!

Awkward and Awesome!


~I KatySue Pillsbury am a opossum killer, or at the very least an opossum maim-er! I slowed down to let him waddle across the road, but then he stopped at the edge of the road, so I went ahead and speed up then the darn thing decided to play chicken with my car and let's just say he lost..... =(

~I can't be the only one who forgets to take to foil packet out of the ramen noodles before dumpling them in the water.....right?

~ My new shift at work, they got rid of the night shift so I am now working the 2pm-10pm shift and as nice as it is to have my mornings free, I would rather start early and finish at a normal time rather then start late and finish late!

~Did you know that tickets on the floor for the Micheal Buble concert in Nashville are over $1,000!? Sorry,  no one is worth paying $1,000 bucks to see, not even Mr. Buble! The nose bleed seats are even a wee bit above my price range, so sorry Buble, I will just have to continue enjoying your music from afar!


~The new shift did come with a pay raise, so that is a major plus!

~I finally gave in and cut myself some Zooey Deschanel bangs and let me say, I'm loving them! I'll post pics soon, I promise!

~Got to see the Lion King Broadway show last week! Another perk at work, I went with the family I work for, so my third row front and center ticket was paid for and I got paid to sit there and watch the show, so that was pretty awesome! 

~And a segway from the above item, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is coming to Nashville in the fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This girl is so excited and is totally shellin' out the dough for good seats and swag come show time!!!!!!!!!!

~I found candy coated popcorn! I had some form a mall when I was 6 or 7 and have been looking for it ever since. Why looking it up online never occurred to me before I don't know, but I did and now have a source for this most delicious treat!
If you would like to try some for your self, go to KuKuRuZa and start drooling!

And in June their flavor of the month is Huckleberry, yum!

Just a Little Bit of Life.....

I KatySue Pillsbury do raise the right hand of wrongess and admit the brussel sprouts (when properly prepared) or fantastically wonderful!

Mmm, brussel sprouts lightly sauteed with olive, salt pepper and craisins! 

New jewelry organizer that I've been crushing on for months. It's just as awesome as I thought it would be! =) Look now I have even more room for jewelry!

Have all y'all been to Hobby Lobby? It's a craft/home decor/magical store of wonders! I love it! I got the lamp that is in the picture with my jewelry organizer there. If you have one in your town I would suggest not taking your purse or you will have no money left!

Now that my jewelry is no longer a solid metal lump on top of my dresser (see above picture) it needed something to make it purtyful. Enter the vase in the middle which will change with the season. Hobby Lobby was having a sale on these fantastic plastic beaded flower stems and I might have gone a little crazy.....

My view leaving work at 6am every morning! I'm still in awe of the way the fog gathers in the low spots, it makes my smile every time I see it!

Does anyone else remember The Little Bits? Is was a show on Nickelodeon a looooong time ago. It was the adventures of David the Gnome and I loved it!!
