We really enjoyed the wine tasting. It's always fun to try new things and listen to someone who's passionate about what they do talk about what they love. I ended up buying a very nice bottle of pinto noir - tasty and different. A little more fruity.
Speaking of fruity, I've seen these headbands around the bloggy world this week. They're by a company called Ban.do and they are far, far, far out of my price range. You know me. I looked at them and said, "I could make something like that!" And I was going out tonight, so I had to make it tonight.
Here's what I ended up with. I'm not going to bother fixing these photos. You'll get the idea.
I'll do it a it a little differently next time. The originals used wire-wrapped ribbon to create a kind of halo-ish crown. I just used a plain ol' headband, but my hair doesn't work well with a headband. So, some sort of wire band it will be.
Cause, oh yeah. There will be a next time.
Chris got home (finally!) from work a little late, so I bounced over to greet him at the door. I said, "Aren't I cute in my giant flower?" And he tried very hard to muster a good response. But he was so distracted by the huge weirdness on my head that he couldn't even look me in the eye while I was talking. His eyeballs kept drifting over to the side of my head. That's when I told him that he should have known I was the kind of girl to wear giant flowers in my hair. He should not have asked for my hand if he wasn't cool with that.
