Over a week.  We're still moving in.  For some reason moving into a house is a lot more work than moving into an apartment.  I think it's cuz we own it.  And if something goes wrong we can't just call the landlord because we're the landlords.  Overall it's been pretty great and we're loving the house.  So far only one minor disaster.  I'm still not even sure how it happened, but here's the story.... 

Once upon a time I was painting some stuff.  Since I had just gotten my hair cut by my stylist and good friend Reagan, I wanted to protect my lovely locks so I pulled my glimmering, shiny hair {see pictures below} back in a bun.  That evening as I was getting ready for bed I unraveled my hair to find that I have given myself new highlights.  Egads!  

The End.

Being a painter myself I'm privy to such information like once waterbased paint is dry you can't use water or paint thinner to remove said paint.  When it's dry, it's d-r-y.  I knew my major would come in handy.  Luckily I only had to cut the big clumps of dry paint out.  The rest I've been slowly scraping off one hair at a time.  I didn't mess it up too much...I think you'd be proud of me Reagan.  


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry! Did you try goo gone? I used to use that to get out remaining glue when taking out hair extensions. how is everything? I finally bought some staples and finished up my chair! Thanks again for your help! Post pictures of your lovely home as soon as you can, please :)
