Happy Valentine's Day!

When I woke up this morning, there was snow all over the ground. We had warm weather last weekend, and all of our snow melted. It was the first time we had seen grass since November. Now the grass is covered again with snow, and it is still snowing. It sure looks pretty. I am going to make some heart shaped pancakes for breakfast after I get off the computer. Jeff and I are going to drop Evie off at Grandma's so we can go out on a date this morning. I am looking forward to it. Last night Jeff, Evie and I went out to a mexican restaurant to celebrate Valentine's Day as a family. We had a good time.
I wanted to look really nice when we went out as a family yesterday, so I put my hair up on top of my head in these wrap, snap and go rollers. I had them in all day. It never fails though. I could look mega glamourous and no one would ever come over to see me. It is when I look hilarious that everyone decides to drop by. It is just a fact. On an average day, I get up and get ready and put my makeup on and do my hair all in the morning so that
I am ready for the day. On those days, people don't come to my door. I had to clean the house yesterday, so I had old jeans on, a ratty t-shirt, no makeup and these curlers in my hair. Lovely. Then my neighbor, who has only come over maybe once in the entire time we have lived here decides to come over and visit. Then someone delivers balloons to our door for Evie. The curlers made me look like I was wearing a Mickey Mouse hat (the picture doesn't show the true "look"). It was all pretty funny. I guess it is Murphy's Law that when you look your worst is when people tend to show up. At least my hair turned out pretty decent, so it was all worth it :).

It's the same for me. When my children were little if the house was spotless no one would visit, but when it was a real mess, I'd usually get a visit from the pastor or someone I hadn't seen in a long time. Guess it keeps us humble.

As always, your hair looks gorgeous. I have those curlers but haven't figured out how to use them yet. And I've not wanted others to see me wearing them either. LOL

Happy Valetines Day Jen. And yes ... the same thing happens to me too. Just like Jules said, I can have a spic and span clean house but the times I relax and let the housework go there are suprise visits!
You look cute in your rollers, you should see what I look like when I have my hair in rollers! My word ... it would scare ya! Especially when I do the rag curls ... can I just say the words "Hee Haw"?
