HI everyone,

So today I am thinking about my upcoming trip to Connecticut and New York City. I leave the second week of June. I am so so so excited. My husband will be in meetings all day and I will be keeping a co-workers wife company. SO of course you all know what I am thinking - drive into NYC and shop the fashion district.

well.....its like a purpley black but its patchy because my hubby did it :( And the chunky highlights which were supposed to electric blue came out green :( I need to make some cool teenager friends so that they can do my hair.....LOL! For now I will just put another bottle of the black and purple in to cover everything else.

Thnkyou for all your sweet comments! I was looking at your pics, and saw the baby shoes! How adorable! Wish I had some grandchildren to put them on. Your daughter is quite the little fashion model isn't she? She is lucky to have such a talented mommy to sew beautiful clothing for her!

No need to pay me. I have a bunch of them here that I made. I would be happy to ship it to you for free simply to be able to share the project. They really are so cool . If you want to wait, that is fine too. The offer is still there though.
