five weekend things

This weekend will be a busy and exciting one, mostly for JD. He's a groomsman in a friend's wedding today. I'm not so secretly hoping that he will have to do some kind of surprise choreographed dance when the bridal party enters the reception. Do people still do that? JD has some dance moves and the world absolutely doesn't needs to see them.

Moving on... here are five things on my mind this weekend. 

A haircut
I have been itching to cut my hair this length for months. The reason why I haven't is because I wanted my hair long for years and now that it has finally reached the desired length of 2012, I feel a bit guilty to chop it all off. Of all my former hair cuts, the shoulder grazing long bob was my favorite. I thought it suited me well. Sure, my current super long hair can be pretty {select days only, I do not get to choose}, but really, it doesn't feel as "me" as this cut did if that makes any sense. That and I think long hair makes my face look wide, how that is possible, I do not know. But this is the cut I'm after. Maybe someday soon.

A pretty hairstyle idea
While we're on the topic of hair, I've had this pretty, twisted back style pinned for a few weeks now and I'm thinking that I might finally give this look a try. It's simple, but interesting and would keep your hair in place and out of your face on windy days. This afternoon would be the perfect time to give it a whirl.

A colorful manicure
Continuing on the topic of beauty... I'm loving this fun and colorful, geometric manicure. While I may lack the hand eye coordination and patience to do this one myself, I will have to attempt it at least once. I'm sure it's nothing a few hours and carefully placed pieces of tape can't solve. 

A picnic in the park
Now that warm weather is finally here to stay, I'm so excited to get out and picnic. I hear it's going to be nice and sunny tomorrow and what better way to unwind from the hustle and bustle of wedding festivities than filling a pretty basket up with sandwiches and some fresh fruit and veggies and heading to the park. I for one, am a huge fan. 

A fancy grilled cheese sandwich
Speaking of sandwiches, I absolutely love the idea of a grilled cheese party, an assortment of different combinations sounds so wonderful. Though, it wouldn't be a full on party, just one for two. Some of our personal favorites are goat cheese with bacon and arugula and dill havarti with fresh blueberries. And I haven't tried it yet, but I recently saw a recipe for banana bread grilled with brie and chocolate! And now I'm officially hungry, lucky for me, these sweet combinations can double as breakfast. 

Have a great weekend!
