In A Funk

So in case you haven't noticed from the lack of posting, I've been in a bit of a funk lately. I can't even tell you when it started or why, but I've just felt. . .meh. . .lately. Maybe it's because it's almost my birthday and I've never really grown up about the idea of being spoiled rotten on my birthday. And CB's family has never been all that into big celebrations, so it's impossible to try and get the point through to him. But he did actually buy me a present this year, so maybe there's hope yet. He and Diva went to the store and picked out some delicious smelling Yankee candles. Then he found two candle holders. One says "Our Love is" and the other one says "Everlasting". Sweet, right?

Then GlamorousMom stopped by last Thursday and brought me this:
This? just might be the thing to break me out of my funk. It's fabulous! Mom also gave me some cappucino mix, so I've been doctoring it up with peppermint hershey's kisses and caramel creamer. Delicious! There's a whole section on their website dedicated to recipies for the thing. And I figure it'll be money saving too. Because I won't be fitting off to the coffee shop every time I want a coffee!

So, after I got that, I started feeling a little better. Then I woke up yesterday morning to see that my yard is no longer icky dead grass, but it's covered with glittery fresh snow! CJ didn't understand why I was so excited that it had finally snowed until I explained to him that I would take pretty snow over icky dead grass every day of the week.

Then I woke up this morning frustrated and all "woe is me". And I learned that today is supposedly the most depressing day of the year. So that shook me out of it a little bit, because I'm never one to go along with the norm.

It all changed, though, when I saw the video for Dierk's new song and saw that he CUT HIS DAMN HAIR! CB had called me and said that some DJ on the radio was whining about it, so I had a little warning. But I saw the video today and there is nothing there! No more curls! Just scruff. "Maybe he got tired of his wife nagging him to grow it out so he just buzzed it all off" was the sympathy I got from CB. "Shut up and don't even think of going near any scissors, dude." was my response to him. I've never really liked "long" hair, but I like to have something to run my fingers through, you know? And CB has gloriously thick, unbelievably soft hair when he lets it grow out. Sadly, he's usually got it cut like he just came home from boot camp. But since we have this theme party to go to in February, he's been growing it out. The theme this year is "Back to the 50's", so he's made it his mission to become Johnny Cash. Which is fine, because I love the whole "bad boy" motif he's got going on. It's freaking hot. But, he just informed me that the Saturday after the party, he's going to shave it all off again.

So, question of the day, ladies. What do you like on a man for a hairstyle? Short? Medium? Freakish 80's hairband long?

Happy Birthday!

I have a Tassimo and you are going to love it! I would die if anything happened to mine! I've learned how to copy my favorite drink from Starbucks. :)

You'll have fun experimenting with different concoctions!

I'm rooting for "freakish 80's hair band." That'll give me some validation. Just kidding.

Happy Birthday! That coffee maker looks awesome, I totally want one!

Mr. Fabulous said...

I am going to keep coming back to check to see if anyone votes for "shaved bald" LOL

carrie i hate to disagree with you, but seriously? dierks would be hott in a hefty bag and high heels. Fo sho. I like short hair mostly -- i threw a big fit when randy shaved his head, but it grew on me (ha. get it?). it wasn't like a qball, but it was cut reeeeeeeeeal close to his head. Oh and -- your husband would also be hot in a hefty bag and high heels. just sayin. ;)

it's almost my b-day too and I'm the same way. Everyone gets something at Christmas, but your birthday is your day, no one elses. You should be spoiled rotten.

I'm jelous, I've wanted a Tassimo forever and have yet to convince my hubby that I really need one.

Have a great birthday, I hope you get some more fun things. Take some time for yourself and relax.

BTW - I like my hubby's hair short, because it's stick straight. If it was curly, it would have to be longer, because curls are so mega hot!

Jen said...

I think I like medium length. My hubby has nice thick hair and like you I like something I can run my fingers through.
Not too long. Don't do the hair band look.
Sorry about Dierk's locks.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day despite Dierk cutting those gorgeous curls!

Hair length on men? It all depends on the man. I prefer AM's hair short, but bald men are sexy as are men with those cute curls. I'm not particular as long as they have a nice bootay!

i wasn't a big fan of the dierks haircut either but... yeah. i'm getting used to it. i LOVE curly hair with ALL OF MY HEART, but seriously, now you can see that beautiful chiseled jaw line of his, and who wouldn't love to just look at every beautiful line on his body? well, i don't know about you, but i surely would!

hope your birthday was AMAZING. :)
