As Seen On T.V.

Are you tired of flat boring hairstyles?

Do you feel like you've tried everything to improve your totally drab hair?

Is teasing your hair leaving you with a mess?

Do you go through a whole can of hairspray trying to get that full volumized look?

Let me tell you, all of these things applied to me. I just didn't know what to do! I felt like I had tried everything and nothing was working. I just couldn't get that look that I wanted.

Then something magical happened!!!

My sister-in-law knew of my desperation for better hair so she sent me this in the mail:

I had seen the Bumpit on t.v. before, but I have to admit I was skeptical.

But at this point I had nothing to lose so I tried it out and...........


From flat to Fabulous!

Now I've got that salon-styled look that I've always wanted in SECONDS and all the confidence to go with it!

Sophisticated and sassy!

And if one lump on your head isn't enough, try this new look:

Double Bump Action!

Twice the volume and fabulous-ness-es is ONE hairdo!

Thanks Whitney! You are a lifesaver!

If any of you decide to use this wonderful product yourself, don't forget to read the "Helpful Hints" on the pamphlet that comes with your Bumpit. Here are some of my favorite:

1. The more you tease the bigger and smoother the bump.

2. Add a favorite rhinestone clip in back to help keep your hair in place.

3. Use aerosol hairspray - use medium hold hairspray while working with Bumpits insert, then finish with firm hold hairspray. If hair is extremely fine, use hairspray throughout all steps.
(It's so nice to not have to use a whole can now!)

And most importantly...

4. Be sure hair over Bumpits insert is not pulled too tight or it will look unnatural.
(Because you wouldn't want that.)

Midnight showings are for sissies

Well, the saga of Harry Potter has come to an end. And honestly, I feel like a little part of me has died. Okay, that's a little dramatic. But I can't even begin to tell you what a nerd I am about Harry Potter and his wonderful wizarding world.

As I'm sure you know, tickets for the midnight showing sold out pretty fast so we didn't have much of a chance at that. But Tyler surprised with matinee tickets for Friday. Sweet!! Our tickets were for 2:30.


Yep. You read right. Now, I am the ultimate night person. I can stay up as late as you want and do quite well on very little sleep, at least for a while. Tyler, on the other hand, does not function on anything less than eight hours. So you can imagine my shock when he told me this. The boy must really love me. And yes, we're both completely crazy. I would be lying if I said I didn't like the feeling of being an idiotic college student again.

We thought about about trying to go to bed before... but the thought of sleeping through it must have weighed too heavily on our minds. So at 1:45 we headed out in our sweats and stopped at Macey's for some treats (a must when you're seeing a movie at that hour).

Note our glazed-over eyes... And this was before the movie even began. And yes, that is a full theater behind us. Turns out there are a lot of crazy Potter fans in Logan.

Don't even ask... You know I loved the movie. Tyler did too. I personally think he was just pleased that Voldemort didn't yell, "YEOOOOAAAHHH!" nearly as much as he did in the trailer (I think we counted 8 times? Watch it, it's ridiculous.)

I must also mention what an odd sensation it was to walk into a movie theater when it's dark outside and come out to find the sun coming up.

And if you were wondering... Yes. I think I will be rereading the Deathly Hallows.

Also, if you were wondering... Tyler is asleep. Love him.

You're a Grand Old Flag

Here's to hoping you all have a happy
Fourth of July weekend!
Enjoy it in anyway you can.
Be with family or friends.
Eat a hamburger.
Or a hot dog if you please.
And watermelon.
And probably some ice cream too.
Obviously, for some of us (me) holidays=eating good food...
Watch some fireworks.
Sing "Yankee Doodle."
And give thanks for freedom!
