MIMM: Who’s that Lady?

by Brittany on February 25, 2013

Happy Marvelous in My Monday friends!

Who’s ready to tackle Monday?  right…

Who doesn’t have a choice but to tackle Monday?  *raises hand*

I’m so thankful Katie came up with this.  It helps me to start my Mondays off with a positive outlook.

Thanks for all the well wishes on Friday.  I’m feeling 100% now.  Luvy is pretty sweet and clever with his cards.

This past weekend was super busy, but I have never felt so refreshed!  Not much time was spent relaxing, but it was marvelous.

Friday, I had my hair cut.

I always get so worked up, but Jill has never let me down.  If you need a salon in Louisville, J Michaels Spa and Salon is your place!

Jill loves to straighten my hair after she cuts it for a change.  Unless it is raining of course.  Then, all her lovely work would go out the window in 5 seconds flat.

The only time my hair is straight is when Jill does it…. so like 3 times a year.  Yes, I’m bad about getting my hair cut.

I just feel like a totally different person with straight hair.  I don’t mind how it looks.  I just don’t feel like myself.  Plus, other people don’t recognize me.  Which can be a really fun thing… :)

However, I was too lazy to wash it this weekend, so I spent the weekend as another woman.  ;)

We went to Luvy’s ball game.

Had a dinner party with our friends Terry and Cheryl.

They even brought me flowers!

Plus we had another get together with a bunch of friends Sunday night.  All that time spent together with friends was completely refreshing, and I was in need of that!

It is amazing at how time with friends can complete rejuvenate you and help give you perspective.

I have been really bad at not taking pictures on the weekends.  However, it is nice to not be “that girl” and just live… agreed?

Sunday, it was time to transform back into my old self again.

John David’s sweet cousin told me that I favored Kelly Ripa with straight hair.

I think she is my favorite cousin.  ;)  You all know I have a not so secret girl crush on Kelly.

What is marvelous in your Monday?

What are you looking forward to this week?

I can totally see the Kelly Ripa resemblance! I love you with straight hair as well as your curly hair. Is your hair stylist’ name Jill Michaels??

Jess @ JessieBear What Will You Wear? February 25, 2013 at 10:05 am

Haha my hair lady always straightens my hair every time too. Except I already have fairly straight hair so it’s kind of odd, but it feels nice so I don’t make a peep! haha. I think I like your natural hair better though. The straight is gorgeous, but I love curls! :D

Thanks girl! I like it better curly too. :)

Your hair looks wonderful! I love how my hair looks after the salon styles it. I get so sad when I have to wash it and attempt to do it myself, usually failing miserably.

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Aw.. Thank girl! I can’t do my own hair straight!

Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen February 25, 2013 at 10:42 am

Oh my GOLL! You DOOOO look like Kelly Ripa. I was looking at that picture thinking, “Wow. She really looks like a different person, but who?” Thanks for clarifying. :)

Um. Is it weird that I just got nostalgic looking at the photos of the basketball game?

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 7:01 pm

I’m afraid telling me I look like Kelly is going to go to my head. ;)
Not at all… I missed you at the game!

I LOVE yellow flowers. OK, the Kelly Ripa comment totally cracked me up. I still hope some day they have another contest or something and you get on it.

This is SUCH a Monday! Isn’t it?

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 7:01 pm

I would DIE if I got to cohost with Kelly… lol

Lisa February 25, 2013 at 11:17 am

Such pretty hair, I looove it!
I have a girl crush on Kelly too, she’s the cutest little thing! Love her.
That is kind of the best compliment to ever receive :)

I agree!! She is adorable!

Allison @ Life's a Bowl February 25, 2013 at 11:41 am

I’m totally envious of your curly hair! My stick straight hair can’t hold a curl for more than 5 minutes, no matter how much hairspray is applied :P But, I think your straight hair looks gorgeous too – it’s always fun to get dolled-up for a change!

Reply

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 7:23 pm

I think your straight hair suits you!! Embrace it!

Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness February 25, 2013 at 11:42 am

Your hair looks great! I love Kelly Ripa too and I can definitely see the resemblance! Your hair looks so pretty straight but I love it curly too. Happy Monday!

LOVE your curly hair. I would probably never straighten it if I had your hair. It’s fun though to do something different from time to time I suppose. :)

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 6:57 pm

You are too sweet girl!! I never straighten it. I just don’t feel like myself!

Alex @ therunwithin February 25, 2013 at 12:36 pm

so you know I love your curly hair, my fellow curly haired lady but It does feel good to go straight every once and a while

Reply

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 7:23 pm

Thanks love… doesn’t it feel like you are someone else when its straight??

kim@hungryhealthygirl February 25, 2013 at 1:07 pm

Your hair looks great either way! I do see the Kelly Ripa thing. Have a great week, Brittany!

Thanks Angela!

Amanda @ .running with spoons. February 25, 2013 at 2:17 pm

You look absolutely gorgeous both ways, but I have to say that I’m definitely more used to seeing you with curly hair… it’s more you for sure :)

This week I’m definitely most looking forward to my trip to Hawaii! EeeEE! 4 days and counting :mrgreen:

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 8:28 pm

I’m so going to sneak into your suitcase and go with you!

Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut February 25, 2013 at 3:59 pm

Okay my hair isn’t nearly as curly (or as long), but I do find it fun for my hair lady to straighten my hair…because usually I do nothing to it but add a little product to de-frizz it and make it remain calm throughout the day.

And you DO kind of look like Kelly Rippa in that picture! :)

Happy Monday! :)

Reply

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 8:29 pm

I think you should rock the curls girl!! They are beautiful… like you!

Reply

Jessie February 25, 2013 at 9:54 pm

I am completely jealous of your hair. It’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 8:29 pm

Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl February 25, 2013 at 11:02 pm

LOVE Kelly Ripa, and you definitely resemble her with your straight hair!

Thanks Hannah! You made my day!

Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning February 26, 2013 at 4:27 pm

You DO look like Kelly Ripa!! Your hair looks great straight, but you KNOW how much I adore your curly hair! And remember, that’s how we met- I came up and petted your hair (that sounds a little creepy :)).

Reply

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 8:34 pm

You just made my day Lauren!! Yes I do remember that… I cherish that memory! :)

Reply

Laura @ LauraLikesDesign February 26, 2013 at 8:40 pm

Ah, you totally look like Kelly with straight hair!

Reply

Brittany February 27, 2013 at 8:38 pm

You just made me squeal. I love her!

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More February 28, 2013 at 9:36 pm
