I Confess....Monday Edition


I confess....I overloaded on the fruits and veggies at the grocery yesterday. They just spoke to me.

I confess..I am really super bad at aging people. I put one man in my office 20 YEARS older than he was and another 10 years older..making friends wherever I go

I confess...after aging people in my industry so high..I've really been amping up the wrinkle cream, sleep and water!

I confess..I don't get HOW people don't have to wash their hair every day. I swear, every hair tutorial I watch starts off with "This really works best if you have like day-old hair." Does every woman besides me have natural fluffy day-old hair?
14 hair tutorials
I bet you they all start with "dirty hair"

I confess..watching Home Improvement makes me want a house full of little boys but, let's be honest.I'm going to need at least one little person to dress up and put bows on. 

I confess..I wish I was one of those people that could pull off saying "cheers" without sounding like a total jerk. There's a lady in my building and she says it every morning and sounds so cool saying it. I would sound like a hood rat.

MY hair is an absolute grease ball if I dont wash it daily. I have a friend who can go a whole week without washing and it looks perfect. I'm like what the hell people I just want day old perfect hair.

Kayla said...

I would like to know if the people with "day old" hair workout and sweat at all, and if they live in the south. there is no way I could do without washing my hair in the southern summers!

Samantha said...

it's hard not to wash your hair when you work-out! and i love home improvement :)

Katie said...

I don't get that dirty hair either. My hair looks greasy at about hour 18 after washing it. and I think you should say cheers more often. I bet you do sound cool. :)

jayme said...

LOOK AT YOU!! YOU'RE IN THE KITCHEN AND IT ALL LOOKS SO GOOD!! you're really makin strides these days!! xoxo

P!nky said...

I'm so bad at aging people too! so I just guess really really low!

YAY VEGGIES, yum!

If I don't wash my hair it's up in a bun...how else do you wear it?!!?

CHEERS to monday friend! xoxo

Erin said...

No such thing as loading up too much on fruits and veggies!! YUM, they all look so fresh!

I sometimes skip ONE day of washing the hair, and it looks gross, lol. It's only a lazy, slept-in thing... I def don't do it on purpose to achieve anything great, lol!!

Shalyn said...

HAHA! You're are so cute! Those veggies look so good! One of these days I'll start being healthier. One day. ;) I'm sitting here right now with my hair up in a big sloppy bun and my hair is (shhh) not clean. Bahaha! I have frizzy hair though so I guess it works!? Those extra 20 minutes of snoozing in the morning are SO worth the bad hair day at work if you ask me. OH, and I used to be obsessed...OBSESSED with J.T.T. Those were the days! :) Have a great week Ash! I confess I love you to the moon and BACK! <3

Alyssa said...

I generally have the WORST second day hair ever! I don't know how everyone does it!

meghan said...

The fruits and veggies look yumm! And I don't have to wash my hair everyday, but I wouldn't say that my day two looks better than day one.

Aspiring Kennedy said...

I hate when people try to guilt trip me into going days without washing my hair. So what if I have more self discipline to wake up and shower every morning? Is that so wrong?

Sabrina Says said...

With the wonderful invention of dry shampoo I don't have to wash my hair.... like ever. Well like once every 2-3-4 days. Depending on if I wear it curly or straight. Straight I can't get as many wears...

I confess I DIDN"T overload on veggies :( dangit....

I think you can TOTALLY pull of cheers!! There is this british man that comes to my work and he always says the greatest things... when I say them I sound like a total nerd. Annnndn then I just laugh. I wish I could have an accent :/

I used to LOVE Home improvement... only because of JTT, though... Seriously, where did he go?!



Thank you for ALWAYS being awesome and leaving me sweet comments! You are the best! and I am the WORST!! but I am trying to be better! Just know that I ALWAYS read! I love you girl!!

Hilary said...

Yeah I agree - my day old hair is nothing to be worked with... only if I'm lucky can I throw some dry shampoo in and call it an AM :\

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

I'm really bad at guessing ages, but then I'm 25 and people still ask what I'm grade I'm in so it makes sense that I can't tell age either, haha!

Lindsay said...

I have to wash my hair everyday too! The only style I can pull off with day-old hair is a ponytail with about a half a can of dry shampoo! :( My roomie could go for like 4 days...seriously, how is that even possible!?

Carly said...

Ah Home Improvement!!! I've not watched that show in years, loved it so much.

And I agree with the hair thing, as much as a love dry shampoo (for days at home where I'm going nowhere) I couldn't get away with NOT washing my hair every day- it's SO greasy otherwise.

JMc said...

I can't pull off day old hair either. I found a dry shampoo that I semi-like but it just bothers me knowing I haven't washed it that day. When my hair is freshly highlighted, it is easier to pull off but once the "fresh color" texture wears off, then it's a must to wash it every morning.

katie michelle said...

there is no such thing as a fruit and veggie overload.

i literally wash my hair probably every 3 days, sometimes more. yikes. don't judge! i just have really thick hair, and it gets poofy when it dries, and i'm too lazy to blow dry every. single. time. so. yeah. i really don't like clean hair. ha! now you hate me.

home improvement is the best.

it's all in the delivery. you can't think too much about it. when i was in scotland, it was my FAVOURITE thing to say, and they literally say "cheers" alllll the time.

so, um. cheers, mate! ;)

katie michelle said...

and! i do work out and sweat. a LOT. sometimes i'll just wash my bangs, or at least i always wash off the hair around my face after a good workout. (in reply to another comment)
(i'm really thinking too much into this.)

Jenna said...

Oh my gosh... I'm so glad I'm not alone in aging people wrong. The other day we had a client at the office and he had a woman with him, as I filled in the biographical form I asked "So, who is this with you, your mom?" - To my absolute horror he responded with "No, this is my fiance!". Terrible... I felt horrible the rest of the day!

And I fully agree about day old hair... I need to wash mine everyday! Day old hair on this chica is not a good look.

Katy said...

Finally! Someone else who is baffled by this "dirty hair" phenomenon. I thought I must be doing something wrong, because I have to wash my hair every single day (or at least really late at night) if I want it to look somewhat decent the next day.

Alex said...

I am sooooooo bad at aging people!! It's a curse.

megan said...

my hair gets so flat and greasy if i don't wash it everyday! dry shampoo doesn't always do the trick for me, either. boo.

Sami said...

The secret to day-old hair is dry shampoo my love! :) I have a love affair with mine which is Oscar Blandi! Ps. Loving all of the veg, teach me your ways ;)

Fit With Flash said...

High five for the veggies, and I feel ya on the little girl ish. I always wanted boys until I nannied a two year old girly-girl. I was hooked... : )

Sara Louise said...

I'm lucky that my hair doesn't get greasy easily so I don't have to wash it everyday which is great if I go and have a blowout done... however, for everyday life it doesn't matter because I have naturally curly, curly hair (not that glorified wavy stuff that some girls have and say is curly) like I have curly-q spirals, and curly spirals do not look great on day 2, so I end up having to wash my hair anyway. We just can't win can we?

And I say cheers a lot. I blame my years living in Dublin. They say it over there all the time. Cheers this, cheers that. Now I'm worried that I sound like a tool.

Young and Fabulous said...

hahah i am bad at aging people too!!!! sometimes it works in their favor...other times...not so much and then i feel bad hahahah

PrettyPhysicist said...

My hair looks like a giant grease slick if I don't wash it every day, and dry shampoo makes it all tangly and knotty. So I'm with you on the day old hair. i had to have day old hair for my wedding, so I cheated and washed it the night before ;)

Miss you friend!
