Blonde Moment

This afternoon I was blonde again…hls friends thumb Blonde Moment

Not literally, but in the un-politically correct stereotype that I’m a spaz. *Even though this is April Fool’s Day, me as a blond is a bad joke I don’t want to remember.

but was having a quarter life crisis this summer and dyed my hair blonde. I looked like an albino alligator. It was tragic. I tried to wear hats to hide it, but it didn’t work…im an olive thumb Blonde Moment

Oh and for the record – it’s NOT strawberry blonde. That rag mop on my head is red. BIG DOG thumb Blonde Moment

Back to why I’m a spaz… I went to wipe down my fridge and removed everything from the second shelf. Then, I proceeded to get distracted by the computer for an hour before I realized the milk is just sitting out on the counter in 90 degree heat!  Fantastic.

In order to “check” to see if it went bad I decided to have a bowl of cereal (or two). I am not sick in the head so I think it’s okay.

Before dinner Ben and I took a walk. Sometimes I forget there are mountains right behind the smog. Loved the view today!

Thanks to a store pit-stop, our walk took longer than we expected. So, when we got home we were HUNGRY and wanted the fasted thing possible for dinner. I offered to make chilaquiles and beans.

Trust this Mexican and do it that way. IMG 1032 800x533 thumb Blonde Moment

Served up with a slightly charred tortilla (just like I like it).

When I was cooking the eggs I also roasted up some broccoli, but it wasn’t done until I was almost done eating (we ate way too fast tonight!). Part of me felt bad about skipping veggies, but I didn’t want to eat them so I’ll save them for tomorrow.

    Isn’t this weather insane? (I’m in Monrovia).
    Don’t worry, I left my groceries in the car for 20 minutes yesterday and I’m not blond. I was just having a “duh!” moment.
    Also, you have me a good idea….chilaquiles. My mom makes the best and I try to do her justice. My dish is okay but nowhere near. I think I’ll make them for my family this weekend. Thanks for the idea!!
    Oh and btw, you ever walk/run at the Rose Bowl? We were there last night, gorgeous!!! 6 miles in under an hour…sweet!

    Your red hair is beautiful! I always dreamed of having red hair as a little girl. Instead I went from brown (which in hindsight was really pretty) to the beginning of GRAY at the ripe old age of 17. Now I have to dye my hair, or I’ll be the only 32-year-old around with a headful of white hair.

    Ugh. I need to move to California. This Oregon rain is killing me!

    If I had taken stuff out of the fridge & got distracted it would be because I was obsessively cleaning the whole fridge.
