weekend plans...

Good morning bloggy pals!  woo hoo its friday.  While I laid in bed this morning as the cobwebs were clearing and my sleepy brain was coming to life, I was thinking "ahhhh... saturday.. sunshine..."  then an alarm went off in my brain (I dont even have a clock in my bedroom believe it or not!)  and the alarm in my brain said.. "hey got to go to work!  its friday!"  and of course though at first I was a little disappointed.. I was still happy that its friday!   And it totally amuses me when I wake up confused like that, or when I have bazaar dreams!  (i know  im a little odd...  or so some say!) lol
soon to be bears
so weekend plans....  bears. I have to finish up a bunch of bear orders that I've been sitting on for a couple weeks.   I think bear orders are how I'll be paying for my share of my sons wedding.. well if there is still a wedding.. who knows whats going on.. there was some talk about eloping. as the wedding plans were causing drama and stress..  but who knows whats going on now.   If I ask, I get my head snapped off.  In fact.. if they elope, then maybe I'll take myself on a vacation!  lol!
no, dont get me wrong.  I hope they manage to find a way to put their wedding together so that is perfect for them both.   I'm glad they are getting married and I will support them what ever they decide to do.. just want them all to be happy.
Other then bears... I have a hair appt in the morning and will be getting PINK highlights or streaks or what ever you want to call them.  light pink, like cotton candy pink.. nothing bold or crazy.  Causing some eyebrows to raise at work.. some think Im crazy, some think the kids I work with will take me less seriously then they already do.. but this is my view on it.
I like to have fun, I'm 51,people already think I'm a nuts or a freak, or whatever... so they shouldnt be surprised.. and I dont care what people think so much anymore.  I do my job, I treat everyone well, I'm not breaking the law or doing drugs or drinking and driving.. or cheating on my husband..  if the worst people can say about me is "oh my god she died her hair pink".. I dont think thats so bad.   At least I enjoy my life and have fun.  right?  I thought about waiting til I retire.. a million years from now.. but why???  so wish me well girls!  maybe I am insane! lol!

bear orders

Its supposed to be a beautiful hot sunny weekend, 80ish!  I'm looking forward to getting outside, maybe go down the road to visit my old friend... the lake!
have a great weekend everyone! 
♥♥♥♥♥  yup.. pink ♥♥♥♥♥

Good for you!! I'm with you....I say do whatever you want! From what I read on your blog, you seem to be supportive of others, you should be able to expect the same in return!
Have fun this weekend!

I love it. I say you have done for everyone all your life it is your and love it. You look amazing for 51 and pink will only make it better. The bears look darling already. By the way I too like that few seconds of confusion...perhaps it is early dementia? Either way it is a nice moment away for the mundane...smiles..Renee

Bring on the PINK! I think after my weekend hosting 12 girls for a slumber party, I think my hair will be turning white. Hugs!!!

Happy weekend!

THREE HUGE CHEERS FOR PINK! I think it suits your rosy disposition! And, Viv ... when I got my feather & beads tattoo at age 54, lots of people were horrified. They asked, "Don't you know you skin is going to sag soon (as tho' it wasn't ALREADY - ha!) and THEN what will you do?" I said, "Well, I guess I'll just have a longer feather!" YOU are a doll & nothing you could EVER do would change that. So, if anyone says a negative WORD to you, tell 'em (politely, of course) to STUFF it! LOOOOOVE YOU!

Viv, you should do what makes you happy! Life is too short and we take it way too seriously. You are who you are in your heart - not the job you do or the packaging on the outside or any way that people want to measure us today. I say - if you want pink in your hair then go for it! The kids might be able to relate to you even better since they won't think you are one of the same old stuffed shirts as everyone else who doesn't really have a clue as to what today's kids need. xoxo!

I'm almost 46 and have purple hair. It's just hair, after all. My employer has a rule against unnatural hair colours, but has yet to say anything to me about it. I say if pink hair makes you happy...then go for it!

Life is too short my precious friend. Do what makes you happy. I decided a long time ago that I didn't care what others thought of me and my wacky self. I am the happiest I have ever been and it's all because I quit marching to same band all the time :)

I can't wait to see your hair!

You are one of the most sane, "with it" people I've ever known.
And, I totally agree with My Vintage Mending. You look amazing for 51 or any age.
Life is too short to worry about what other people think, especially those who are critical and judgmental. It's none of their freakin' business anyway. : )
Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
Love from,

Oh you go Girl! It is about time you think about YOU and I think the PINK is a great idea I have thought about it from time to time. You go first! Hugs, Diane

kandeland said...

you getting pink highlights is the best news I've had all week!!! YAY!! can't wait to see them. and that's the way to be: life's too short to care what anyone has to say about your freaking hair! have the happiest weekend! xo

Debby said...

Oh my gosh.....I was at huge antique fair today and talked about you and I wanting to get pink hair. Yes, eyebrows were raised. Then I saw a vendor with some pink hair....I will post a picture. Not like we would want. Can't wait to see what yours looks like. Hey, I am 10 years your senior.........and I want pink hair too.
Is there a picture of the bears that you are making.

Linda Ruthie said...

Happy weekend Viv!
You know, the older you get the less you care about what other people think. That's definitely a good thing. If pink makes you smile, then go for it. I can't wait to see pics of the bears and their cotton candy pink-haired creator. ♥

We should live for today, because no one is promised tomorrow. Go pink! I think it will suit you.
