I've been considering tossing the red hair for a while now. It was getting darker and darker with each dye job and I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I did the pink for a while (don't worry, I still am! The pink is a wig, for anyone who didn't realize that! I'll have some fun wig tips/videos etc coming soon) but both Mike and my mom were really partial to the brown so I decided to give it a whirl for Autumn/the wedding. I'm not sure if I'll have pink or brown at the wedding (I'll probably decide the day of haha) but it's nice to have my natural hue back.
I was scared when I dyed it that it was going to be almost black (or worse, purple black like the last time!) but luckily it's perfect. It just has the red undertones. Pesky red -- so hard to get rid of! My hair already feels 10x healthier and I think it'll be good to be a natural color for a while. My hair could use some rest! I'm liking it so far, so let's hope I don't regret it!
We've also been hard at work making upcycled bowties! This is the bowtie the boys will wear in the wedding, and Mike made them by hand! We've cut fabric for about ~200+ bowties that we'll be working on soon to put on Etsy, in Honeybean, etc. They're all made from upcycled fabrics so that's kind of fun. I'll be sure to share more about those soon! I'm really really proud of how talented Mike is. He even made my hairpiece for the wedding! I know! He's so talented it's annoying. I kind of want to punch him. (Just kidding. But really...)
Mike is also a litttttle bit in love with his new custom suit. He ordered the nicest grey three piece suit and I am in love. He's going to look so dapper on our wedding day! He has been geeking out about it and maybe putting it on just to walk around the house haha!
I also hung some new prints the other day on my side of the room. The two 4 x 6s on the bottom are from the EineDerGuten shop! The top illustration is from Nan Lawson. Also - a disclaimer: I know our room looks really feminine, but you're only seeing my side in these photos! haha Mike's has illustrations of Ron Swanson and lots of guitars on the wall. He just lets me have pink pillows because I like them. (Even with this disclaimer I know I'll get loads of "OMG you force Mike to have girly things!" but maybe I'll save that for a different post :P)
Today we're building picnic tables for the wedding (and by we I mean Mike + my stepdad), borrowing decor from a family friend, and putting together signage for the farm. I'm already exhausted just thinking about it! Hope your weekend is rad!
