Update: I Still Exist

Paddle Boarding
So I know I haven't written for forever.  I don't really have an excuse.  I just let life get in the way, as usual.  I've been cooking some great things (found a trick for easy steamed buns) and some not so great things (cabbage with mustard.... blech) but I just haven't sat down to write about them.  For now, here are some random updates:

- My big brother got married!  The wedding was beautiful, and was perfectly "them".  I could not be happier for them and wish M & V a lifetime of happiness!

- We spent the week after the wedding on Cape Cod, where we tried a new activity: Paddle boarding.  It was really fun and a great workout, plus you get to see some cool places.  We even got pretty close to a seal at one point.

New Hair Color!
- I decided to change up my hair for fall.  I've been obsessing over ombre` stuff, and like have red hair, so I went with a red ombre` look.  I love it.  The only downside is that red is the hardest color to keep and it has kind of faded to a coppery color, but the coppery color still looks nice.

- Even though I haven't been running as much as I like, this past Sunday I ran in my first 5k (that did not have obstacles).  My husband and I ran together, and we finished in 36 minutes, which is better than I expected!

- We bought a waffle iron, and I figured out a great  points-friendly waffle recipe!  Also, waffles are amazing and making them at home is great!

- Fall is my favorite season, and is full of great events.  This weekend I am going to an Oktoberfest thing at a bar in D.C..  Next weekend is my 5 year wedding anniversary.  Scott, my husband, is working hard on present and I have no idea what it is and it is driving me crazy!  We are going to the spa in the morning, then a wedding in the evening.  We are taking a trip in November since we can't go away the actual weekend of our anniversary.

- I promise to get my butt in gear and write some recipes!

  1. Can't wait to see more photos of your ombre' hair! Knowing already how great you look with red (and even strawberry blonde) hair, I'm really excited to see you venturing into new territory. :)

    And YAY on the paddle boarding! Jenni tried it for the first time a few months ago and loved it. I don't swim, so I watched from a distance. However, I did go kayaking for the first time. That was awesome.

    Congrats to your brother! I'm glad they had the wonderful day they deserved. Sounds like it's been a fantastic summer, Kylie. :)
