I’m so glad you got a kick out of my last post, hair salon blogging, and the pictures of me with foils in my hair.  Yes, keeping it real.  Always.

Here’s my new and freshly touched up color.


Photos courtesy of my iMac’s built-in camera and the Photo Booth program.

AverieNo cut, just highlights.

AverieBa-bye root regrowth. I can’t believe I am posting that picture, but whatever.  I’ve posted foil pictures already.

It was my first time using the built-in camera since I got this computer and it’s so much easier than trying to balance my DSLR in one hand, while doing it in reverse in a bathroom mirror, with a huge lens covering half my face, and somehow trying to snap a decent picture.

Why didn’t I think to use Photo Booth sooner or with my old computer?  I’m a little slow on the uptake, apparently. But I’m on board now.

I’m also on board with:

1. A freezer full of cookie dough balls and bites.

I reached for High Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls yesterday.

High Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough BallI always store extra desserts in the freezer that way no matter what I’m in the mood for, it’s likely I have something along those lines waiting for me in cold storage and it just takes 10 minutes or so to come back to room temp.  Good as new.  That was my grandma’s method for 90 years and if it worked for her, I’m on board.

2. I’m on board with beautiful yellow calla lilies from the farmer’s market


Aren’t these so vibrant and striking?  I could have taken pictures of them all day.

They remind me of the calla lilies I saw in Aruba a few weeks ago.  And whoa, that trip feels like a lifetime ago already.  Sigh.

3. I’m always on board to spend time with Skylar.  She doesn’t know it’s fireworks weekend yet.  She’ll be thrilled when I tell her!


4.  Bowls of popcorn.  Always on board with those.

I have an entire popcorn recipes section I love it that much with a variety of blends and combos.

Adding nooch, cinnamon, sugar, stevia, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, coconut oil, ginger, maca.  <– All at once, or just some of those at once.   It’s all good.

5. Sex on the Beach

6. Yellow Peppers, Sugar Snap Peas and Spicy Doritos Cheezy Dip

1. Have you ever discovered something new on your computer that you had no idea existed that has turned out to be helpful and useful?

Do tell because we can all help each other learn things.

My tip for those that aren’t familiar and have a Mac:

To do a screenshot, you hold down three keys at once: Command + Shift + 4

And then you can “draw” the screenshot size, it saves it to your desktop, and you can upload the screenshot to your blog, email, or other files.  Pretty basic but maybe someone doesn’t know that one.  I forget half the time what the three keys to hold are.

Also everyone raves about Instagram for their iPhone.  I don’t use it.  Maybe I should be?
