Cousin It - I told you so...

It's random Friday.  I've got 5 things to say.

1.  You all didn't believe me when I said I looked like Cousin It.  I wasn't joking.  But you'll have to wait until next week to see my new haircut.  I will say that I didn't chop it all off yet.  Normally I cut off 10 inches every 3 years to donate to Locks of Love.  But I have a 20 year high school reunion this summer (gulp) and I don't want my hair that short for it.  Anyhow, here's my before picture:

2.  Recently Paul let it slip (not sure how we got on the topic) that I drank one Diet Pepsi everyday when I was pregnant with Pierce.  Pierce got so mad at me!  He was all, "BUT I DON'T LIKE SODA!"  When Paul asked him if he could remember when I drank soda when I was pregnant with him, he swore that he did in fact remember, and that he hated it. 

3.  I bought a pair of skinny style 80s jeans on Kohl's clearance for $5.  They are incredibly wild (for me) with black flowers over gray denim.  I totally would've rocked them in high school, but I wasn't sure I could pull them off now.  I got brave enough to wear them out recently, and I got so many compliments that now they rank up there as one of my favorite clothing pieces. 

4.  I saw a red breasted robin last week.  Immediately my winter mood lifted.  Now I know that spring is coming.

5.  Since spring is coming, I planted carrots, lettuce, and pea seeds in the garden.  Looking forward to my own fresh veggies, if all goes well. 



P.S. - If you like the Cousin It hat, it's available for purchase in my Etsy store.  Then you can get your own Cousin It on.

My hubs would kill me (okay, that's an exaggeration,) if I cut my hair. I can't wait to see your new do.

You just crack me up! Can't wait to see your new do!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

If I had glorious hair I would wear it long... unfortunately my hair is better kept above the shoulders so that I don't truly look like IT! Love the hat and I bet you do rock those jeans~!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love all your random thoughts! We have robins here too.

Andrea B. said...

HOLY COW! It's so long. :> I'm sure it looks great.

And I think the jeans must be excellent and so cute on you.

Too hilarious about P and the soda. Cracks me up what kids associate and say.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I love your long hair. I wish I could pull it off. But it goes all flat on me on top. I look like a haggard Cousin It.

Poor Pierce, to have to put up with Diet Pepsi for 9 months! :-)

Out on the prairie said...

Nice to have those veggies in already,it is still frozen here.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

That's a LOT of hair!

The Incredible Woody said...

I used to pull my long hair over my face and it would scare my nephew when he was little. Now that he is 23, he still doesn't like it :)

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Love your long locks and wish I could get away with wearing my hair long. I know Double D would love it. Your boys crack me up.

alissa apel said...

I like my hair cut short, but my husband hates it. Hummm...but I hate his beard. He still has that.

Manzanita said...

Thanks for stopping and the B/D wish. I love your lifestyle and where you live. You have a beautiful family and lots of young energy around your house. You have lots of strong, healthy hair and that means lots of Jing in Chinese health.

I seen a butterfly last weekend at our house! I can't wait for Spring! Yep! You do look like cousin it! lol I really need to get my hair cut too. If the wind blows just right and I don't have it up then it gets caught in the truck door when I'm out! lol Maybe Pierce likes the real stuff instead of the diet kind??? I can't drink diet drinks at all. Makes me sick and I mean SICK!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I'm looking forward to pictures of the new do. The jeans were a great find - still rocking the fashion!

Myya said...

20 year reunion, how exciting. Mine is in 2 years... I seriously cannot believe it has been that long!

Sooo funny about the diet pepsi when you were pregnant. My girls think they remember stuff from when they were in my belly too. LOL

Nancy said...

We are all awaiting the new you picture with your haircut but it seems you have already made changes with the jeans...You go girl....

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

You are ridiculous!!! But I love it! I'm glad you got your skinnies and it worked out so well!

Valerie said...

I've seen jeans like that and I've been tempted...I bet you look cute in yours! And what a kick Pierce's diet coke comment is! Yesterday, on the way to Amy's campus visit I saw four bald eagles! So exciting! And so is the idea of a fresh new haircut! I need one, and I can't wait to see pictures of yours:)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

You have so much to do- and lots of hair that needs taking care of.
love

Ginny said...

Cousin IT for sure!!! And maybe a little bit of ZZ Top thrown in as well. The Pepsi story is an absolute scream, it is one you definitely need to write down.

Mary said...

Yes! That is indeed a great hat. :) I like the sound of your jeans. I have a Kohl's gift certificate i need to spend, and i might look for a pair like you described. It's okay if i copy cat you, right? :D I live in Oregon, and we don't have any classes together and all...

Debra @ Homespun said...

LOL

AND AGAIN LOL!

Emily Sovich said...

My kids are prone to wild remembrances, too. Can't wait to see your new hair cut! And yay (!!) for planting in the garden! :)

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I love the hat! I just went shorter last week and I love it! I've been threatening for two years...but finally did it. Love Kohl's too, just never do get there on a good sale day. Sigh!

warren said...

I saw a robin too...but he was shivering!

Are We There Yet! said...

Hahahaha... everytime I see that picture, I have to laugh.

We have been seeing robins but the poor things are probably freezing... Really cold here.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Woah, that's some hair! I recently donated mine to Pantene Great Lengths because they only required 8". But my stylist ended up cutting off more like 10 or 11" so I could have sent it to Locks of Love! I'm still getting used to it. I think I like long hair better ;)

SweetMarie said...

Who are you?? And what did you do with Lisa??? :)

I do like skinny jeans...I feel thin. LOL

Betsy Adams said...

You'll look just like a teen with your haircut and skinny jeans!!!!! NOW---wear that to your reunion!!! ha ha

Cute hat!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Arti said...

Your hair looks superb!! And I would love to eat the fresh veggies and fruits planted in a garden!
Have a lovely weekend Lisa :)

Lin said...

For me, the true sign of Spring is when the red-wing blackbirds start to sing...and they are singing this week!! Hooray!

Michaele said...

Kudos for you for getting seeds planted already. My garden is way to muddy right now. Can't wait to see the haircut.

oldmanlincoln said...

I wish I had a garden to plant the seeds in. Used to have. Now can't get out much. Dragging oxygen with me every where I go. But good luck on your future harvests.

Lexie Loo, Lily Boo, and Dylan Too! said...

I can't wait to see your new haircut!
I would love to plant a vegetable garden!

Anne Payne said...

I've been procrastinating over my hair for weeks now! To perm or not to perm, to layer or not to layer...Can't wait to see your new do :)
