I love Mondays!

At least for now I do. As long as I get to spend Monday mornings on the couch reading blogs and every other Monday hanging out with my man while he works from home, I'm going to love Mondays. I especially love having a day to relax after such a busy weekend!


As you may have noticed from me mentioning a million and twelve times, I got my hair done on Friday at Alchemy the Workshop in Charlotte and OHMYGOSH everything Alexa said about it was true. I want to go back once a week! sorry, wallet! If you're in Charlotte, make an appointment today. I'll wait while you go.... Oh and if you don't live in Charlotte come visit and we'll take you ;)

Now without further ado.. my shorter, redder, darker hair!

It's hard to tell here, but it's shorter in the back and longer in the front. I've been playing with this idea but when he said how good it'd look I told him to go for it! He said we'll do subtle this time and next time we can take it up a notch (both with the red and the cut!). 

After that, I made Christian take me out to dinner so I could show off my new hair, of course! Then we made a run to Lowe's. I swear we go to Lowe's and Ikea more than any other place right now trying to get everything together in this place. 


We spent the morning waiting for our new couch to come. They brought the wrong color love seat when they originally delivered the couches so they came out Saturday morning to switch them out!

VERY exciting things happened Saturday that may have involved that thing I'm not so subtlety hinting about pretty often. I still don't think we're there yet, but man oh man did Christian make some moves ;) 

We also ate lunch at one of my favorite places in Charlotte, so far. I know there are tons of places I haven't tried yet and I know this is a chain, but I've never had it before and I'm obsessed with their Double Decker Mac and Cheese burger. I crave it at least once a week. It was definitely a gorgeous day to spend lunch out on the patio!

Taco Mac.
After running errands almost all day long, we finally came home to relax, watch some TV and eat some dinner. It was a perfect day in my opinion.


Of course, I work on Sunday form 10a to 9p. But, I treated myself to a Salted Caramel Mocha. Sorry to all the PSL fans... but... the Salted Caramel Mocha is the best seasonal latte at Starbucks. I don't even like Starbucks but I won a gift card from work and I knew exactly what it would be used on! 

Christian spent the day hanging curtains and doing tons and tons of laundry now that we finally have our washer and dryer hooked up! I came home to our entire bed covered in my clothes. And surprisingly, he still loves me. I spend some time putting it all away while Zuko tried to help. 

Now, I'll be spending the day running errands, grocery shopping and finishing organizing the closet. Is this what being a grown up is like?

Happy Monday, friends!

Glad you had SUCH a good weekend!~ Your hair looks fabulous and if/when I ever come to Charlotte I'm demanding you and Alexa take me there to get beautified!!! :)

Alexa said...

I still cannot get over your gorgeous hair!!! Everyone at Alchemy just loved you as much as you loved them, and I'm so excited y'all finally got to meet!

And Glenn's a huge Taco Mac fan so I need to give it another shot and find something I love! I also agree with Kelli ^ about Mac's Speed Shop - there's one on South and one on S. Tryon we go to and while I can't speak for the BBQ, everything else I've gotten there is! Awesome beer selection too :)
