In honor of Halloween, I bring you scary sights from the house of vibe:

My Roots. AHHHH!

What are they, like, 3″ long? THE HELL? Apparently, since I refuse to buy hair dye of the drug-store variety (for fear of dying more than my hair or ending up with a wack color) and since I’m hoarding my money to pay off debt and whatnot, I have to discuss these roots with nearly EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON. I meet. Seriously. If I go out somewhere, someone inevitably asks me if I’ve purposely lightened that streak in the front, makes a comment about Rogue or the Bride of Frankenstein, or WORSE! Flat out tells me I “need to fix that”. I KNOW, OK? I KNOW!

The boys drew, we cut. Everyone keeps their digits and eyeballs this way. Elias’ (the one on the right) is actually double-sided! Very creepy and cute! Which leaves the scariest for last:


Picture this: You’re naked. Wet. Soapy. You are happily standing in the shower with your eyes closed, lathering your hair. Then, as one is prone to do sometimes while in the shower, you open your eyes and look down. There, on the ground, IN THE SHOWER, is a HUGE, MOTHER-F’IN COCKROACH!

Adam thinks that there is nothing that will freak me out. He is wrong. See Exhibit A (above).

Now, since (if you are sane) I have likely given you nightmares for a week, I shall leave you with this non-scary image:

Feel better? :)

Happy Halloween!!!!

    Glad you’re back! (And I’d be completely freaked out by that cockroach, too. I’m sort of afraid to shower right now, thanks.)

    Girl, I am in the boat with you on the hair thing . . . I’ve not had a hair cut or color in 6 months because of Mister’s lack of employment — I can’t justify the cost.

    The spookiest part of this post is definitely the bug! I love how its super scary, yet you took a photo. that means the blog is back for sure!

    do not fear the drugstore hairdye, woman. I’ve done it a million times and lived to tell the tale, and I only had to get it fixed once (that was when Anne Marie did highlights. haahahahaha!)

  5. Anne Marie Says:

    I have been dying my own hair for YEARS. I have saved MILLIONS of dollars. I will do your at thanksgiving if you like. And for the record, Carrie’s MINOR debacle was in my early days of learning to do highlights.

    We shall see if this continues…I think I started my habit of checking for postings again. LOL. I don’t like cockroaches.

  7. Stacey Says:

    Oh god….cockroach in the shower. Ick ick ick. It’s not like you can get him down the drain, probly. Well, not my kind of drain anyway.

    I’ve got some serious roots going on, but I am fixing that tonight. Actually, RANDY is fixing that tonight. He is my hairdresser. Hee.
