What Color Have You Dyed Your Hair?

Would You Dye Your Hair Pink?

How About Purple? 

How about both? 

Pink Purple Hair

Not me. I’m not that brave or silly.

This is my sister the artist. She figured what better way to get inspiration?

She did this around Halloween so as a good sister I gave her my witch hat.

Is it me or did this turn out to be an awesome combo?!

My Sis the Witch

Then around Christmas when I realized the pink/purple was staying around for a bit,

I was at our local Walgreen’s and found the PERFECT gift for her.

I saw it and just knew the two of them were meant to be pals

Pink Hair and the Unicorn

Aren’t they a cute pair? Besties forever

So, what odd? different? Inspirational color have you gone with?

Not just the spray and wash out type either.

I want to know a color you Really, Really Committed to like my sister the artist?

Your Nickname ~ Love it or Hate it?

Do you have a nickname?  If so, do you like it? love it? hate it?

Sure we all have nicknames that people give us based off our name. For example, my last name is Adams, so I’ve heard my fair share of people humming the Addams Family theme and snapping their fingers  (you just tried it didn’t you? – I know some of you did).  This one actually makes me smile. I loved the show and while I might resemble cousin IT more than mom Morticia, it could be worse since there always is Uncle Fester.

I have another nickname that tend to hide. I love the story behind it since it makes me laugh, but the name in of itself I hate (no offense if it is your name). Oh, what is it? Well, let me explain first.

I have had long hair most of my life and as a kid I hated brushing it (yea, I was the typical tomboy). So the solution was to keep it in braids most of the time. My stepdad loves to assign names to people off of things and these braids were the target for mine. Only problem was, he got his fictional characters messed up and began calling me one that never wore braids.

I’m not sure if I would have liked it more if he got any of the right characters since I’m not sure Pippi Longstocking is much better than the one I was assigned (although she was a classic tomboy). Alas, I will never know.

So I have spent most of the past 25+ years shielding those I know from the truth….my nickname is……Alice.

Stop laughing….

If your name is Alice, I’m sure it is a lovely name for you. And if you are Ann B Davis, playing Alice on Brady Bunch made you some nice money. But for me… I’m not a fan.

Can you tell me what this girl has to do with a tomboy in braids?

So sad…..

My mom never calls me this thank god. She prefers to either yell in that mom kind of way that includes first and middle name. But since I usually was the good one, she usually just call me Brat. Hmm, now that I think about it, maybe I wasn’t the good one.


So…. what was / is your nickname?
