Hot Dogs and Hair Dos

Dear son and I went for lunch the other day at a new place in downtown Aberdeen, appropriately called "Dog Nation Grille". It is the most hopping place in Aberdeen. I drive by on my way home from lunch and on the way home from work daily and every one of their outside tables are full. The kiosk used to be a TINY bakery, a Tiny Gas station, and now...a hot dogplace. You can only eat outdoors. And you can only have...Hot Dogs.
"Mom, is this all they have...hot dogs??"
Yep.
"hmmmm, that's funny, why would they just have hot dogs??"
Because it's called Dog Nation. Not Pizza Nation, or Burger Nation. Just cuz.
"Guess I'll have a hot dog"
Good choice.

Editors note...dang good hot dogs I have to say. I had the chicago dog which was, you guessed it. A hot dog. LOL
They do have about 50 toppings. Mayo on hot dogs?? yuck. ketchup, relish, and mustard for me! They did also have home made french fries which were to die for. We of course, loaded them with cheese. I'm sure that was good for my diet!

After lunch, we strolled by the Bryant house Bed and Breakfast and took some pictures.

"Mom, we're not going to get arrested are we?"
???
I hope not. Why would we get arrested??
"For taking pictures!"

I can see my mug on the post office now. The flower picture caper. Dangerous. Armed with a fujifinepix. Do NOT approach. She is armed and dangerous!! Last seen with a hot pink camera strategically placed in her pocketbook looking for a victim!

A beautiful spring day.

Purty purple.


I decided to get a new do. For those of you who know me, I have curly hair and it had grown past myshoulders. And it was turning gray. No more. Miss Clairol and I met up this weekend and took care of the aging situation. Then I went armed with my picture of how I wanted to look and chopped it all. Gone. Now if I could just loose the weight I want to loose, I'd be good to go. One thing about me is that when I make a big change with my hair, it often times means I'm ready for changes in other parts of my life. I did start to clean my closets this week as well. Hmmm. Connected in some way?? LOL Who knows what's on the horizon....but something is. Stay tuned to find out!

Great hairdo. Reminds me of the new Rachel Ray-do that I've been contemplating. Glad to hear that you and your camera aren't locked up after that picture taking caper. LOL!

You look great and I love the color. I am a big fan of traditional Chicago hot dogs...A Vienna red hot split, with mustard, onions, tomato, neon relish, celery salt and on a poppyseed bun!

Hair looks good. Tomorrow I swear is the day for my haircut!

Must be something in the air - I went and did the same thing last night after a fight with my husband!!! Got in the Jeep, pulled into the salon, said - fix the color and CUT some off!!! Ahhhhhhh that felt good!

I could have written this post. I just chopped off my hair too. In fact it is very similar to yours. I blame my need for change on the fact that this is the longest winter I ever remember. I need change and a fresh new feeling. Gorgeous picture and I love the color of your hair!

Vallen said...

Well, that new "do" is very sexy and I love the color.
I am afraid that I am a mayo on hotdog girl. But then I am a mayo on almost everything kind of girl.

Your hair looks great and you look fantastic! Sounds like you guys had a great time. What could be better than spending time with a loved one, sunshine, flowers and a little brush with the law :-) Yup, sounds to me like something is brewing in the horizon. Definitely looking forward to see what else develops in you life!
