. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

August 9, 2012

High Five for Friday

dress: H&M  vest: kohls  shoes: payless

1. After quite a bit of debating I decided to dye my hair dark.  It's been more than 5 years that I've had blond hair and I was ready for a change.  This is definitely the darkest my hair has been.  So far I like it most of the time, but I still having a hard time getting used to it!

2. While we were camping I read this book and thought it was hilarious. 

3. I think this picture of my nephew riding my dad's horse is one of the cutest things I've seen. 


4. I think Old Navy should stop enticing me with their coupons and deals.  
I do not need more clothes. 


5. While I am not quite ready for summer to be over I do greatly look forward to Fall and getting into more of a routine.  Especially with cooking and eating at home.  Here's one recipe I'm excited about making. 

Tim Tebow's (mom's) Pizza Pie as seen on ABC morning news

Hope you have a great weekend!

Your hair looks great darker! I died mine darker once, but after two weeks of constantly playing with my makeup, I decided it was the hair color that had to go! Your dad's horse is gorgeous! And, if you read my post from today, you will know will love pizza pie!

Love, love, love the dark hair :) So gorgeous!
And I keep hearing about that book! I'l have to add it to my list!

I have been dying to read that book and keep forgetting the name of it!
I may or may not have taken a slight detour while reading this post to write it on my book list.

Love your dress... and your hair looks awesome dark!

and i agree.. Old Navy has way too many sales/coupons... they always suck me in!!

Andi said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I think the darker hair looks great! You are one of those people who look good blonde or brunette!

Elisabeth @ Imma Walking Fashion Crime said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Awe! You are so cute! LOVE the dark hair. :)

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love your hair. I was thinking that maybe I should do dark highlights instead of light ones. Right now, I've got the unintentional ombre thing going and I kinda like the dark roots (that sounds so backwards).
I'm so ready for a routine! While I don't wanna get up early, I want something to do all day!

Faith said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love your hair dark! A whole new look!

That pizza pie looks amazing!

I'm getting excited for Fall! But I think it has a lot more to do with what I get to wear :)

Pamela said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love your new hair, it looks so pretty! And the pink dress is pretty too :)

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You are beautiful with darker hair... I loved you as a sweet blonde, but this is a bit spicier, and I like it! Even though I no longer have a regular school schedule, seeing all the elementary school kids go back to class puts me in a more structured Fall schedule too! (and makes me long for back to school shopping!)

Looking through your old photos....and omgosh, if you didn't tell me, I would have thought you were naturally a brunette. It fits you so well!

Dorien said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That hair colour looks really good on you! And so does that outfit, you look gorgeous.

Caitlin C. said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Mmmm that pizza pie practically has me drooling! And I loveee that dress from H&M!

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Your new hair color is cute, but it would take me some getting used to, too! Being a slightly blind person who refuses to wear glasses most of the time I frequently rely on recognizing people by the color of their hair. :P It works unless they dramatically change it.
And I love that bohemian style you've got!

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The new darker hair looks great on you, Katie! I think it'll be perfect for fall. If you can't adjust you can always add highlights :) Have a great weekend!

Your hair is REALLY cute! I'm so glad you posted on that book. I've been wanting to read it too. It was recommended to me after I read Bossypants, by Tina Fey, also a really funny read!

You nephew looks like a pro! I've contemplated unsubscribing from Old Navy's emails because they get me into trouble. Let me know how that pizza pie works out. It looks delicious!

Ali Hval said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That pizza pie recipe looks fantastic! Anything pizza makes me drool though, honestly... :)

And that picture of your nephew is adorable!

I'm realling liking that dress. I feel like I haven't seen many maxi dresses that are in soft, pretty colors like the one you're wearing! Especially like it with that crotchet vest <3

Ali Hval said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

woops, *really
realling isn't a word, silly mee~

Montana said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love the darker color on you! I went dark a couple years back but couldn't get used to it... eventually I went back to my comfort zone of blonde. But you look great - you're tempting me to try again:)

Becky [Apples of Gold] said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the outfit! The vest matches your hair (which looks great! The color compliments your skin tone really well) and the pink and brownish combo always looks good together.
That book does look like it'd be a good read! I'm interested just by seeing the cover.

Rachel @ Making Life Fabulous said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love the dark hair! I've never colored my hair, but I've been contemplating taking on the ombre trend...

Stephanie @ henry happened said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love your dark hair - you are one of the lucky ones who can wear both! And totally agree that Old Navy is WAY too tempting :)

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The new hair color looks fab on your Katie! I agree! Coupons anywhere entice me to spend $$!

Lily Garay said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Cute cute cute new hair! Did you also get a haircut? Maybe you should get blonde lowlights.

CC said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the new hair color. It looks great on you! ;) And that dress/vest combo is so pretty. ;)

Kristine Foley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look GREAT with dark hair!! SO perfect for the seasons changing, and loving your outfit as usual! I'll have to check that book out!!

Hima said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

1. I love how the vest matches your hair and highlights both of them! It's so pretty, and I love the dress too!
2. I read that book, like 4 days ago, and I loved it! I saw it on someone else's blog and decided to read it. It was pretty good, but it didn't really have a huge impact, if you know what I mean?
3. Precious. Enough said.
4. I want to go to Kohls soooo bad. We have some $40 Kohl's Cash. Killing me.
Sorry for numbering again. I just felt like I had to, not sure why :)

<3Hima
