Toss and turn I Can't Sleep at Night

Did my hair with some curls. I ended up pinning them back on one side because they were always in my face, but overall, I loved having "bouncy hair." I was definitely inspired by the recent DYT video of Type 1 hands on night for October 2011, and they talked about getting volume in your hair. It's always something I can use help with.

I love this peasant shirt. Volume, circles, purple. Everything a girl wants.

Pink: Day 2

Turns out I'm wearing pink again today.

Got a 100% approval rating from the dentist this morning, so the day was off to a good start. A 41 degrees Fahrenheit start, and I went with a wet head and no coat to the dentist. The frost on the rooftops reminded me that we want to insulate the attic this fall, before we spend millions heating the house that has no insulation.

There's very little talk or movement on my floor at work today - I may need to put on my coat and go for a walk, just to keep myself out of trouble.

Life in Plastic, It's Fantastic!

Looks like it's been a little while since I posted about my Type 1 antics.  But don't worry, they're still going on :).

I am wearing a new rather permanent accessory - my wedding ring!
I should get you a closeup so you can see the awesome height that you get with it (from the side).

Other than that, it was pink day. I am wearing this great skirt from Hillard and Hanson (one of my favorite department store brands) that I picked up at the thrift store the last time we had a date night to the thrift store (September, maybe). It's a bit of a light pink, but I love the seaming that goes across the hips. It's a touch longer than I typically go for, but fits beautifully.

Type 1 as a married person: So, I married the love of my life, and he happens to be a 2/4 in energy type. So, to put it lightly, we are on completely opposite ends of the spectrum. I'm all over the place, and he's...more sedate. It's not to say that we are incompatible, but it gives us an opportunity to honor each others' strengths, not compare one's weakness to another's strength, and to honor and cherish each other. I'll tell you more about this later, but I am so honored to have such a gentle and kind husband. :) Cheesy, I know!
