Cut it.

Hi, friends.  This is like a 'hi, I'm going to have a conversation with you via blog since I don't get to talk to you all much right now.'  

So, I cut my hair.  About 5 or 6 weeks ago.  Sadly, I have not seen many people in the past 6 weeks that anyone other than school friends and a few people would know.  Maybe my books and my iPad have noticed?  Perhaps the coffee lady in the library?  The first week I didn't regret it.  It really does take less time.  Starting week two, I started regretting it.  And now I want my long hair back.  I knew this would happen.  How silly.  It really isn't that short, but short enough.   Ponytail-viable, though.  That's important.  I took in a photo of Olivia Palermo's cut as a guide.  And I know I don't look like Olivia Palermo.  That is obvious.  But my hair stylist did a really great cut.  I trust her.  I just want my hair back.  My layer of comfort.  So, I try to curl it to make me feel better.  It will grow.  Yes, it will grow.  It is not that big of a deal.  And not as big of a deal as the fact that I really need to go study instead...Adios!  Miss you, friends!



  1. You are lovely, my friend, inside and out, long hair or shorter! P.S. I like it curly! :)

  2. Oh Coll, when I read your title I thought it'd be really short. This, my friend, though shorter, is still very flattering.

  3. Col you look beautiful! Love it. And love the way it's styled.
    We miss you!

    Thinking of you,
    Dee and Lez

  4. I like the new cut and style. =)

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

The move.

We've had some questions over the past few weeks as to how the adjustment is going for us.   And I kept meaning to write about it earlier, so here we go.  With a smattering of very high quality photos (kidding). 
Overall, we are doing well.  This is not to say we don't miss people, that everything is absolutely wonderful all the time, etc.   Change is really hard, but it is so good, and so stretching for our lives and our faith.  So, good is my overall answer.

Eloise at the Circle. 
For those of you who don't know the whole story of our move, I'll give you the shortest version possible.  Last fall, Zach was offered a hospital medicine job in Southern Illinois (he had been working at his old engineering job the first few months after graduation from PA school).  This decision was made after much deliberation and prayer and applications were sent out just about everywhere (seriously - we were open to anywhere).  The job in Southern Illinois made the most sense and we de…
