Do you all remember Jones Soda? I used to LOVE this stuff. When I worked at Borders (in the cafe, before it turned into Seattle’s Best which, in my humble opinion, doesn’t taste good) I used to drink this stuff ALL THE TIME. So good. I wish we had had room in our wedding budget for this stuff. Because really, how fun would that be?
Dustin and I got all our errands done, had turkey sandwiches and TATER TOTS (I know you’re jealous) and now we’re watching episodes from season four of Lost. Because it’s pretty much the most amazing, messed up show on TV. I’m glad we’re doing it through Netflix rather than watching on TV because I’d be a whole mess of confused if I had to wait a week for each episode. And even then I’m STILL sometimes confused, hehe.
Now, I have something I must confess.
But you have to keep in on the DL because I’m a little vain.
You see, what I was 14 I began dyeing my hair. My mom did it for me the first time, putting highlights in. For awhile that was okay. And then I became obsessed. Throughout the years my hair has been a mess of colors, from nearly blond to black, dark brown and red, pumpkin orange (that was a MAJOR accident) and I went through a phase where I had pink or purple or blue in my hair. But I always dyed my hair because I liked change.
Then, in 2005, right after Dustin and I started dating, I decided to stop dyeing it. I found a color that was close to my natural color (a mousy brown, if I remember right) and let that be that.
It was then that I saw it. About six months after I stopped dyeing my hair, I found a gray hair. I was 22! How on earth could I have a gray hair!?
From then on it was all downhill. I have quite a few these days. And so now, rather than dyeing my hair simply to change it up I dye my hair to cover up those horrid little gray monsters.
How I wish I had told little 14 year old me to chill out on the dye, that soon enough I’d rely on that stuff to stop those little hairs from peeking out.
To those of you that DON’T have gray yet, wear that natural hair color loud and proud!
