The One with Saturday and a New Do

This morning I converted to the digital world and everything Google has to offer (if only they had Picasa for Macs, I'd be in heaven!). I've carried around a binder full of semi-important documents for years now, but I realized Google docs is so much better. I can access them from any computer and I won't waste paper reprinting everything. Plus, my new purse isn't big enough to hold a binder so I really didn't have a choice. I've also used the Franklin Covey binder system to record my appointments and such for the past three years. But that's also a waste of paper (and money), so bye bye Franklin Covey planner, hello Google Calendar. I spent the morning figuring it all out and uploading all of my documents. I'm stoked.

At 11am we went to the Shiba Inu dog breeder. Oh my goodness I want one now. But now is just not the right time. They are soooo cute. She had a little 7 week old puppy that I almost stole. Almost.

Allie and I ate lunch at Fat Burger. I added egg and cheese to my Baby Fat which made it taste oh so good. Then at 1pm I went to Rapunzel's and chopped my hair off to above my shoulder. Ahhhhh!I've been wanting to do something drastic to my hair for awhile now. The blond streak was that something for a few months, which I was going to get rid of today, but I like it again now that it's not so standoutish. The best part: I feel 10 pounds lighter.

Then we went to Seattle so Allie could get a(nother) tie-dyed shirt from Pike's Place.
It was so much more crowded at Pike's Place mid-Saturday afternoon than on Tuesday morning.
We also strolled around Pacific Place Mall and browsed through my favorite store - Anthropologie. It's always fun to see how their window displays have changed.There are always interesting people in big cities. Seattle is no exception if not one of the capitals of weirdies. I saw a man dressed as Santa sitting in a wheelchair so you could sit on his lap and take a picture. Any takers? Any? I didn't think so...
I love these round towers in Seattle. They're shown once or twice in the scary movie The Ring.On the drive back to Redmond I tried to get a picture of this cool modern house set on the hill. It's the bright green/wooden paneled house on the bottom right corner.

We ate dinner together as a family at Thai Ginger then went to a lovely wedding reception.

Tomorrow morning we're flying back to Salt Lake. I'm bittersweet. I love being home, but I miss my kitty :)
