Back to work today...

I'm back to work today after a nice, long weekend. I hope you all had a nice weekend as well. Mine was nice and laid back. Friday we had our bible study group over to our house and then some of us went bowling after-wards, which was a blast. We bowled several rounds because it was all you could bowl for $13.99. The last round we crazy bowled. Below is a picture of me Granny bowling, LOL. :-)

Then Saturday I did some cleaning around the house and then Saturday night I met up with my sister and our friend Holly for a girls night out dinner. We ate at a restaurant called Bella Milano in Edwardsville, IL. It was very good. :-) Then we went over to Starbucks for a latte. :-)

Sunday we went to church and then had my parents and my sister and her family over for lunch and football. While the guys were watching the football game, my sister and mom wanted to try out a recipe they had found for cinnamon rolls. I don't have the recipe, but here are the ingredients and some pictures of them before and after baking.

Cinnamon Rolls after being prepared. Rising and then they go in the oven.

 Cinnamon Rolls with icing. Yum. :-)

Yesterday I was off  work for MLK, Jr.'s B-day. I spent most of the day at home with my fur-babies and then yesterday evening I had an appt. to get my hair cut and colored. I was super excited because it had been since last Aug. that I got it cut and colored. Yikes. The roots were grown out pretty bad and my hair was in dire need of a haircut. Here are the before and after pictures.

This picture was taken last month . You can see how long my hair was and that the roots were a lot darker than the rest of my hair, lol. 

I took this yesterday after my appt. I really like it. It actually looks blonder in person. 

Heres a side view. I really hate my side profile, lol.
