I’m so excited to share my new hair!! I’ve been wanting to change up my look and possibly add more pink. That’s exactly what I did! Jackie, the wonderful owner of Chroma Salon in Tacoma, reached out about doing a collaboration together so I jumped at the chance. I had passed the salon many times and was always interested in trying it out.
I’ve been a bit absent this month. Sorry about that! I’ve been trying to allow myself the freedom to miss a few posts here and there and that’s exactly what I did.
Everything is good here! For Fletch’s birthday we visited the Point Defiance Zoo. We spent the entire day together which was absolutely lovely. Other than that we’ve mostly just been working and then hanging around. Not too many exciting things going on.
I recently visited my Dad in California which was a ton of fun. I don’t get to see him too often so any time together is time well spent. I’ll have a full post about that trip soon.
I’m sorry I took such a long break. Honestly, I didn’t even realize how long it had been until this moment. You’d think after blogging for this long that I’d have more of a habit developed but I guess not!
Anywho, I’m back and have a few posts I’m working on so be ready for some fun content!
Love you all!!
This weekend was the local convention, GeekGirlCon (GGC)! The original founders of GeekGirlCon wanted to create a welcoming and inclusive place to celebrate diversity, create community and empower those who are marginalized. Their mission is as follows:
GeekGirlCon celebrates and honors the legacy of women contributing to science and technology; comics, arts, and literature; and game play and game design by connecting geeky women worldwide and creating community to foster continued growth of women in geek culture through events.
Fletch and I recently celebrated our three year wedding anniversary by spending a weekend in Vancouver, B.C.! It was really cool to see a new place. We don’t get to take many vacations so taking the time to make a memory together was really special. For years now we’ve been wanting to visit Canada and now we can finally check it off our travel list!
Last weekend Fletch and I took a little trip up to Seattle for the day. My friend, Bunny (S2Hearts), hosts an event called Mahouto Market and she needed a few more volunteers. Fletch and I went up to Seattle early Saturday morning to help setup and decorate. We spent all morning getting things setup and then walked around the event for a few moments after it started. There were a ton of really amazing artists!!!
We then rushed off to grab lunch before heading over to the Pacific Science Center for the Terracotta Warriors exhibit. It was an amazing exhibit!! They had the statues roped off but you could get super-close.
I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to visit China to see the sculptures in person so seeing a few here in Seattle was a nice compromise.
After reading as many of the small plaques as one can handle we exited the special exhibit and wandered around the rest of the Pacific Science Center. I had been there before to see other traveling exhibits but never bothered to look around at the other exhibits at the center. So, we walked about and visited the other areas. It was so cool! I didn’t realize that they had a dinosaur area or a butterfly house.
We walked until our feet ached then decided to head home, back to Tacoma.
It was a marvelous day. Busy and tiring, but so amazing. I love days like these. A day made of memories that I’ll have for years to come. Me and my boo, Fletch. Laughing and taking silly photos.
Have you had any fun weekends recently? I want to hear about it!!
