hurry up, life.


this is what happens when the restlessness officially sets in...when life seems to be moving slower than ever, when your husband has been out of town for a week, when you've exhausted all your furniture-rearranging options, and when retail therapy just doesn't seem to work like it used to...

you do crazy things like highlight your hair blonde.

and then tell life to hurry. UP!! because i'm not sure i even want to know what other crazy things i am capable of doing at this point. i.e. actually learning how to use my sewing machine, giving up on eyeliner, start eating more mushrooms?? (all of which i am guilty of, as of recently.... crazy, i tell you!)

  1. Ugh! I know that feeling!
    But then when life starts moving to fast I want it to slow down!! So fickle I am.

    Loove this hair tho. Looks good!

  2. to be fair, there's never a bad time to eat more mushrooms. although learning to sew just sounds crazy to me.

  3. Agreed! Mine is more like, hurry up and tell me what to do with my life! But then of course, there are the days I wish life would slow down, so I could cherish the days a little more...

    And the hair was a good choice! Very pretty and very summer.

  4. Girl, I feel ya! Thus - the pixie cut. Giving away almost everything I own. Eating meat again. Sometimes you just have to shake things up, right?!

    You look beautiful, as always. Hope you are well!

  5. W - reading your words and it's like they could have come out of my own mouth. keyboard. whatever. :)

    It's good to shake things up a bit - and the blog highlights look great on you. You could have gone crazier. Like pink or blue highlights. ;)

    Hugs.

  11. I agree! I am always catching myself saying this too. I need life to fast forward just a little bit so I can be comfortable with where I am in my career and just life in general. But mostly so I can end this long distance thing and be back together with my guy :)

    1. haha i know, i've actually always liked mushrooms, but aaron hates them so i don't ever ever buy them.

      ...until last week! i figure he travels enough that i'll just buy them every time he goes out of town. they're yummy little things. :)

  34. whitney im so jealous!!! blonde hair is really the best. i cant wait to see some of your sewing projects! Soooo I know he's gone a lot but I think that when we come home in a few weeks that Mike and Aaron (and Dusty and Dan) need a man's overnight trip of some sort. What say you?

  37. Your hair looks gorgeous! My husband has been out of town for a few days now and I'm going crazy. Retail therapy really doesn't seem to work anymore for me, either. Maybe the first day he's gone...

  38. Oh god I am so in love with these photos! you are wearing a great color combo, but whats even more important: the cutest smile!!!

  39. Your hair is beautiful - the colour combination is also a real winner! I am willing myself to choose brighter colours when it comes to daily wear, I don't even like black and somehow gravitate towards it when it comes to my wardrobe. No more! Summer and autumn require more of that gorgeous fuschia you are modelling, I think (and which I am told that redheads and blondes do so well to embrace, as it happens, giving us both a reason to enjoy it!)

  40. your wear blonde so well! love the bold colours.

    ReplyDelete

  44. I know exactly how you feel. I want life to speed up and find myself with an independent, walking 2 year old (he's 18 months now and still only crawling) in my perfectly organized and decorated home. Moving for the second time in a year has really taken a lot out of me. It's all really exciting, though!

    Love your new 'do. Hope you don't go too crazy!

    (a little crazy is always good)

  45. Whitney...giving up on eyeliner?! I don't believe you for a second. P.s. love the hair, it's getting so long too!

  46. Love putting pink and red together! It is such a fun and girly combination!
