February 17th, 2018

Hello friends! I hope everyone has had a super Saturday! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

img_9565

This photo is kind of irrelevant haha. I’ve just been wearing these socks all day and they make me super happy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m not sure if I can describe my Saturday as “super”, but I did have a pretty good day. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still not running thanks to my toe, but it is starting to look and feel a lot better! And the tooth that had the root canal seems to be healing nicely as well! It’s still a little sore, especially where I had the Novocaine shots, but other than that it’s doing great! Now I just need to get a crown on it and it should be good to go! I’m still feeling a little bit itchy from the antibiotics I had though (I had an allergic reaction to them). I only took two doses of it so I was hoping the rash wouldn’t last for very long, and for the most part it’s gone, I’ve just got a few itchy spots left and it’s kind of obnoxious haha. But all in all, my ailments are healing and I’m very happy about that! I was in kind of miserable shape there for a little bit, so it feels great to finally be on the mend!

Just for comparison, the photos below show my toe on February 7th, and 16th. So it’s definitely healing! I’m still kinda limping around on it, but it definitely feels better than it did on the 7th when I hurt it!

 

It’s kind of annoying that I’m always doing this kind of stuff my myself though. I swear almost every time I get hurt and am unable to run, it happens because I did something stupid or klutzy (like slipping, falling, and hitting my toe on the edge of my couch). Most of my injuries don’t come from running, although I have had my fair share of those as well. I’m just super injury prone, I guess.

This is my husband’s assessment of my life. It’s also the reason he won’t let me get on the roof to take down our Christmas lights EVEN THOUGH IT”S THE MIDDLE OF FEBRUARY!!!ย 

Anyway, 4 years ago today to my parents’ extreme disappointment, I got my second tattoo!

img_9743

Haha I guess they weren’t too fond of their eldest daughter getting a relatively large, black skull permanently put onto her body. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I, on the other hand, think it’s fucking fantastic! A lot of people don’t seem to agree with me on that one though, but that just makes me like it even more haha. The artist who did it was pretty awesome! She did a tattoo on Luke a few days before she did mine and they both turned out really great! I bled a lot during this one (it took a lot of ink haha), but even so there is very little visible scaring and 4 years later it still looks really good!

And funnily enough, February 17th also just so happens to be Billie Joe Armstrong’s birthday! That didn’t happen on purpose, it was just a really weird coincidence. Still kinda neat though. ๐Ÿ™‚ So yeah, wishing the happiest of birthdays to my favorite front-man!

I wish I knew who to properly credit this photo for! All I know is that I found it on pinterest.ย 

Speaking of tattoos, I want another one (or two, or ten. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). So does Luke. And it would appear that we will be going on another family vacation this summer (this year we’re going to Branson, MO), and I’m thinking we might end up coming home from that trip with a little more ink. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’ll have to wait and see, but we both have several ideas of things we want done, and I’m pretty sure we’re just going to start making it a tradition to get tattooed while we’re on vacation, because why not?! Haha I mean, we both got tattooed while we were in Florida and that was a lot of fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ I also kinda want another ear piercing, but I absolutely hate healing piercings. It usually takes my body a while to finally get used to them. So maybe that wont happen. Or maybe it will. I can’t make up my mind haha.

But anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today. Haha I don’t have a lot going on right now, especially since I’m not currently running, so I feel like I don’t have a lot to talk about. Oh well. Hopefully it wont be too much longer until I can run again!

Until next time,

~Ashley

First Root Canal Is Done!

Good new! Yesterday the specialist that I was referred to had a cancellation yesterday, and was able to get one of the root canals I needed done! Whew, I’m glad that’s taken care of. But it literally took ALL of the available money we had through our dental insurance, so I’ve just gotta hope the other tooth that needs one holds up for another year without any issues. Because there is no way I’ll be able to get it done without the insurance money. But oh well. At least one is done. And in a week or two I’ll have to get a crown on it and it should hopefully be good to go for a while!

img_9670

I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to get a medical procedure done haha.ย 

Anyway, the whole process was super easy. The only thing I felt were the Novocaine shots, and even those weren’t bad. We waited a few minutes for those to kick in, and then the dentist was in and out in about an hour. Not bad!! So, I told him about the allergic reaction I was having to the clindamycin the other dentist gave me for the infection I had because of the tooth. He was kinda surprised about that, apparently not many people are allergic to that particular antibiotic. But he said since the root canal removed all of the infected tissue I should be fine not taking any more antibiotics. So that’s good! Now I don’t have to experiment anymore with antibiotics. Haha apparently my body just doesn’t like them.

img_9673

Can you tell that the right side of my face was super numb in this photo?ย 

Also, can we talk about how dentists just hand out hydrocodone like it’s candy? The first dentist I saw gave me a script for 20, to hold me over until I could see the specialist because no one was really sure when that was going to happen. I had that one filled and took one because I had been having trouble eating, but that was it. Then after the root canal the specialist gave me another script for 16 more, even though I had filled out on one of their forms that I already had some. Like, there is no way in hell that I need that many pain pills! So I’m not having the other script filled, but jeez, no wonder there’s an opioid crisis in this country. They’re just being handed out like its no big deal. I just thought that was crazy…

But anyway, happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

My First Dental Appointment In 10 Years, Game Plan For My Teeth, And A Toe Update

Yup. You read that right. Until yesterday I hadn’t been to the dentist in 10 years. I got my bottom set of wisdom teeth removed when I was 16, and that was it. Mostly because dental work is freaking expensive. Actually healthcare in general here in the USA is freaking expensive and the whole system, including insurance, can be pretty dumb. Hence the reason I haven’t been to a dentist in 10 years or to a GP in 4 years. I do got to the gynecologist once a year though. That is 100% covered by my insurance, including birth control (as long as I get the generic brand. I’m pretty sure I’d have to pay a little bit to get the name brand. But the generic works for me, so I’m gonna continue having my insurance pay for it). So at least there’s that!

Anyway, my teeth are kinda bad haha. When I was a teenager I didn’t exactly take care of them…I try to take better care of them now, but maybe it’s just too little, too late. My mom’s also told me that my dad’s teeth aren’t so great either, so I might have inherited that from him. Either way, they aren’t great and I’ve had a few (one in particular) that are getting particularly bad. Bad enough that I absolutely had to get them looked at. So finally got a dentist appointment set up to look and the problem, assess what needs to be done, and then refer me to a specialist. Good thing that got set up when it did, because a few days later things really started going downhill for me.

The particularly bad tooth was definitely infected. That was something I was almost positive of. And then on Saturday I got a fever and the pain in that tooth was so bad that I couldn’t really eat much. But since I had a fever I didn’t really feel like eating anyway. Luckily it wasn’t a high fever or anything, although I hadย terribleย body aches. I think they might have been the worst I’ve ever had! My temperature finally came down to my normal of 97.5 on Sunday, so thank goodness that was short lived, but I still couldn’t really eat much. Sad face…

img_9613-1.jpg

My fever on Sunday only got up to 101.7. So not too bad. Haha as a kid I was notorious for getting super high fevers (I’m talking 104, 105 degrees) and I was worried about it getting super high and that would have been terrible.

On Monday I was still having trouble eating, but I saw the dentist at 2 pm and he solved that problem for me haha! But first I got a few x-rays taken of my problem teeth, he look at those and at the teeth themselves and told me what was up and what my options were. After much discussion about what our insurance will or will not cover, and how much money our insurance will actually pay, we finally had a game plan. So, I need two root canals, one extraction, and some other minor work. But I cannot afford to get that all done at once. So for now I’m going to get a root canal and then a crown done in the tooth that’s really causing me problems, then wait a year until our insurance will reset and we’ll have more money available through them, and then get the second root canal done, and then just go from there. So at least we have a plan! ๐Ÿ™‚

So the dentist has referred me to a specialist to get the root canal done, so I need to set that up, but for now he’s put me on antibiotics and pain meds. Specifically, I’m supposed to be taking clidamycin once every 8 hours, and a hydrocodone every 4-6 hours as needed. First off, I didn’t realize he was gonna prescribe me pain meds! I figured he’d tell me to just keep taking ibuprofen. Although, the problem with pain meds is that I don’t like taking them haha. Back when I was 13 and had an appendectomy the hospital sent me home with codeine that I took maybe once or twice. I just didn’t like the way it made me feel. And when I was 16 I had my wisdom teeth they sent me home with Vicodin. I took that twice. It made me puke both times, and I hate puking more than anything in the world, so after that I stopped taking it and just suffered through the pain. That was kinda terrible, but I lived haha. So at first I was kinda skeptical about taking the hydrocodone, but I really wanted to eat, so I took one last night and holy cow did it work!!

Initally right after I took it I was kinda freaking out (hello anxiety) thanks to all of the issues pain meds have given me before. But after about half an hour I felt pretty darn great!! Hydrocodone makes one of my sisters really loopy (she had to take it for her hip dysplasia) so I was wondering if I was going to get the same affect. I didn’t though. I was just felt super float-y and calm and kinda dizzy. But not bad dizzy. It was the dizzy feeling you get when you’re drunk, but without all the grossness that comes after that hahaha. Not gonna lie, it was a fun experience. I think mostly because it did kinda shut my anxiety up for a little bit. Oh and I was finally able to eat, so that was fucking great!! It also made my probably broken toe feel really good too, so that was a nice little benefit. ๐Ÿ™‚ But so far I just took the one at around 3:40 pm yesterday and I’m still pretty much pain free in my tooth, so that’s pretty freaking great. But I’m sure the antibiotics are kicking in and helping that situation as well.

But unfortunalty, I had to stop taking the antibiotics after 2 whole doses (one last night and one this morning). So, I’m allergic to penicillin. I learned that when I was in the hospital after my appendectomy. It made me break out into hives. Which of course I informed the dentist of, hence the clindamycin. But it turns out I’m allergic to that too. A few hours after taking my second dose this morning I started breaking out in a rash. It’s not too bad, but it itches and is super annoying… So I called the pharmacist and then the dentist earlier and they both put me down as allergic to it in their records and now the dentist is calling the pharmacist to try to figure out what I should take, and I guess one of them will call be back when they do. Damn…I was so prepared too! I’ve got this gross probiotic supplement that I’ve taken twice now, andย  also have some greek yogurt on the ready too. Haha oh well, at least I’ll be prepared for when they figure out another kind of antibiotic to give me.

img_9654

Finn thought he wanted some of this gross probiotic supplement. Finn was wrong.

And on top of all of that, my toe is probably broken. Well, I’m thinking I probably just fractured it, but either way, I’m just having all sorts of fun right now…So the toe thing happened last Wednesday, when I slipped, fell, and hit it on the edge of my couch. Oh and then ran 4 miles on it because initially it only hurt a little bit and wasn’t bruised or swollen or anything. That was probably a bad idea and I haven’t run since. I have been able to stationary bike a bit though, so at least there’s that. ๐Ÿ™‚ Today most of the swelling has gone down, but it’s still really really bruised. Haha but it doesn’t hurt at all this morning. Thanks hydrocodone!! I’ve been doing my best to stay off of it, icing it, keeping it elevated, and taping it to the toe next to it. So hopefully it’ll heal quickly. But so far it seems to be taking it’s sweet time…

img_9658-1

Haha see that purple line going down my toe? I’m pretty sure that’s the exact spot my poor toe hit the couch. ๐Ÿ™‚

So in hopes to speed up the healing process I made some bone broth over the weekend, using the recipe from Run Fast Eat Slow. I’ve just been drinking it by it’s self, and it is really really good!! Not sure if it’s actually going to help speed up the healing process or not, but it’s suppsed to be full of calcium, magnesium, collagen, and all sorts of other good stuff, so I figure it just might help. ๐Ÿ˜‰

img_9563

So yeah, that’s my life currently. I’ve got a probably fractured toe, a definitely infected tooth (which is getting taken care of soon), and now I’m having an allergic reaction to my antibiotics, which I’ve had to stop taking. Oh man I’m having a hell of a time right now…

I suppose now I’m gonna go slather myself in topicalย benadryl because I don’t have the oral kind, and cannot go obtain any because my husband and I only have one car, and he’s at work. And wait and see what kind of antibiotic they’re planning on trying on me next…Hopefully they’ll find one that works for me.

I hope you’re Tuesday is fantastic!

Apparently Running This Morning Was A Bad Idea…

Hi, my name is Ashley and my husband wont let me get on the roof to take down the Christmas lights that are still up, and today I just solidified his reasoning behind that.

I am a klutz. A huge klutz as a matter of fact, and I’m really good at accidentally hurting myself. I do a lot of weird things like twisting my ankle because I stepped off of a sidewalk weird, or being covered in scrapes and bruises because I’m really good at tripping over absolutely nothing. Honestly the fact that I’ve managed to complete 3 half marathons unscathed is pretty impressive!! But today my klutzy, injury prone fate caught up with me once again.

So here’s what happened…

This morning I tripped, fell, and stubbed my toe on the edge of our couch. That’s a pretty typical occurrence in my life, actually haha. So I checked my toe and it wasn’t red or bruised or anything. It kinda hurt, but I could move it just fine, so I figured it wouldn’t be a problem, so I went out and ran 4 miles. But as it turns out, that ended up being a bad idea.

img_9510

This is probably the most instagram-y, instagramable, instagram post about winter running ever. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My toe kinda hurt for the first mile-ish, but after that it stopped so I figured it was fine and kinda forgot about it. After I finished my 4 miles I took a super instagram-y photo, ate some super yummy chili that I had made last night, and then jumped into the shower. That’s when I noticed that my toe was very purple and kinda swollen. So yeah, I guess running n it really was a bad idea.

img_9512

In all fairness, how the heck was I supposed to know it wasn’t a good idea?!?! My toe didn’t look like that when I put on my running socks/shoes, and really didn’t hurt that bad, so I didn’t think I had any reason not to run haha. So first I texted my sister who is a nurse and an absolute saint for putting up with me when I ask her about things like this. And obviously I’m asking her for medical advise a lot because I hurt myself a lot haha. She told me that it’ll probably fine if I just RICE it and tape it to the toe next to it, and as long as I can still move it I probably don’t need to see a doctor. They wouldn’t really be able to do much for me anyway unless it was badly broken, and I feel like it can’t be that bad if I was able to run on it.

After getting medical advise from my sister, I texted Luke and told him what happened. He was not amused…

img_9514

Told you I’m always getting hurt hahaha.ย 

So yeah, I guess I’m going to spend the rest of my day icing my toe, elevating it, and staying off of it. And I guess I probably won’t be running for a few days, so that really sucks…Ah the joys of being a klutz.

Anyway, I hope you’re having a good day!!

Thursday Things

I feel like there was quite a bit of good feminine vibes and womanly comradery on the post about periods I wrote on Tuesday. It was pretty great! I deffinitely think that’s something that needs to be talked about more! Although one person didn’t seem to like the quote from Billie Joe Armstrong that I included in the post. This one, to be exact!

img_9069-1

I don’t have the exact source for this photo, but I found it on Pintrest. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ah, I love it! It’s one of my favorite quotes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, someone called it “crude” and stated that they don’t think Billie Joe Armstrong will be remembered as a musician. Not gonna lie, I kinda laughed to myself about that. Billie Joe is the singer/song writer/guitarist in Green Day, one of the biggest rock bands in the world, with over 85 million records sold world wide, andย  who just so happened to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2015 during their first year of eligibility. So you’re right, Billie Joe Armstrong wont be remembered as a musician. He’ll be remembered as aย legendaryย musician.

Haha I’m well aware that making that argument is kinda pointless and that it really doesn’t matter. But I like talking about Green Day and I’m gonna jump at any opportunity I have to do it! They are my favorite.

But anyway, the point I want to make here is that obviously everyone is different. We all have different tastes, opinions, and feelings about certain things. And that’s totally awesome! Yay for being different and unique individuals with our own personal thoughts and feelings! I really don’t care if you don’t like Green Day, punk rock (and I’m warning everyone now, I refuse to get into the argument about what is or isn’t “punk”, so don’t try to start it with me), and the rebellious “fuck ’em all”, “give ’em hell” attitude that comes with things like that. I think it’s fucking great and it feel right and real to me! But that just doesn’t do it for some people and I get that! But I don’t understand the point of making negative comments about the things other people like just because you don’t like it (unless the thing that person likes is causing actual harm to someone, but that’s a whole other issue). Seriously! Why?? I don’t get it. You know what I’m not a fan of? Cheesy romance novels. But I’m not gonna go around telling people who read and enjoy them that they’re terrible books and that it’s a shame that they talk about them.

Whatever. The other point I’m trying to make here is that I’m not going to change what I like, do, or post here onย my blog, just because someone doesn’t like it. Not gonna happen. I’m gonna keep doing me, and if you don’t like it, you can kindly fuck off.

I know that came off kind of aggressive, but come on, Iย hadย to do it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seriously though, if you don’t like what I talk about or post here, then don’t read it. I feel like it should be as simple as that.

Anyways, We’ve been having some kind of weird combination of winter and spring going on here in Kansas. Earlier this week we got a little bit of snow, but today it’s 50 degrees and sunny and I already miss the winter…Although I can’t deny the appeal of a warmer sunny day, at least not all the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I didn’t end up running today. Mostly because yesterday it was in the 30’s and I was super excited about that, so my run ended up being a little bit harder than it should have been haha. Luckily that didn’t seem to re irritate my sore foot so that’s great! But I also didn’t want to push it haha. So I ended up spending a lot of time walking my dogs instead. Obviously that made them all super happy, so that was a definite win for today!

I also spent a little bit of time on my yoga mat, stretching and rolling out some sore spots. Not my favorite thing in the world to do, but I always feel so much better when I do it. Plus like I’ve mentioned before, I’m trying to do all of the little extra things to hopefully prevent me from obtaining any injuries. Because oh man am I good at getting those! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I probably should have done a little bit of strength work as well, but eh, I’m gonna stick with one boring thing at a time.

img_9242

40 minutes of stretching/foam rolling goodness.

After that was done I spent the rest of my afternoon working on a few other blog posts and attempting to clean my house. Haha if you saw my post about mud a few days ago, well, most of my house still looks like that. Well, kinda. It’s notย asย bad anymore. But my backyard is currently a huuuge, muddy disaster, and the dogs just bring it all inside. Especially Finn and Dean. They like to spend most of their time outside running around, wrestling and herding each other. So they’re just covered head to tail in mud and dirt…Sometimes I legit just want to build a kennel out there and just have them live out there whenever it gets gross outside. That probably won’t happen though. Doing stuff like that can get expensive. Plus they would probably spend all night barking at the stray cat that likes to wander around in the easement behind our backyard and I don’t think our neighbors would appreciate that haha. So yeah, when it’s muddy outside it gets muddy inside, and I end up spending an absurd amount of time sweeping/vacuuming/mopping up mud.

Along with dealing with all of that, last night Luke and I also started cleaning out my brother-in-law’s room since he doesn’t live here anymore, and boxing up all of the stuff he left behind (and there was a lot of it for some reason). And then we moved the rabbits and ferrets in there, and at some point Luke also wants to move our gecko in there as well. So now we have a whole room dedicated to our petting zoo haha. It’s kinda nice having them all in one place and all of their messes contained into a single room though. ๐Ÿ™‚ So I also had to do some hardcore scrubbing of the floors where their cages used to be. Whew! It definitely feels good having all of that taken care of! And now we have more room in our bedroom/kitchen since there aren’t animal cages in there anymore, and that’s pretty sweet!

Alrighty then! I think that’s all I’ve got for today!

Happy Friday eve!!

You’re Green Day obsessed, partially purple haired, totally punk rock (yeah probably not hahaha), blogger friend,

Mud

This is why I laugh when people tell me to just wipe their feet before they come inside. No amount of foot wiping is going to keep mud out of my house when itโ€™s gross and muddy outside. ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘

I just felt the need to share that with everyone. That’s all I’ve got for today.

I hope your having a great Saturday and that your house doesn’t look like mine….

~Ashley

PS,

I gave up on the blonde. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thursday Things

Hello, people of earth and any potential space aliens reading this! Haha hey, you never know! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

img_9008

First and foremost, can we talk about how freaking true the above photo is? Especially when you decide to chug two Not Your Father’s Root Beer Beer’s on a Wednesday night. I know that’s not a lot, but I don’t exactly drink often and chugging them in a short amount of time may or may not have gotten me a little bit tipsy and I woke up a little more tired than I probably should have and very thirsty. Oh well, that was an easy enough fix. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, yesterday was Dean’s birthday!!!!!! My favorite running buddy turned 3 years old yesterday! We didn’t make him a cake like we did for Finn, but he did get a pretty good amount of raw, ground beef all to himself. So I think that more than makes up for it.

img_9018

I say he’s my favorite running buddy, but I actually haven’t run with him for a while haha. I need to though. He really enjoys running with me. I’ll have to do that after all of the salt washes off of the roads. I don’t like walking my dogs on all of that stuff. It’s got chemicals in it that I don’t want them getting on their feet.

And speaking of running (my segues on these “Thursday Things” posts are so freakin good, I know. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), I didn’t do any one Tuesday or yesterday haha. After running on snow and ice on Mondayย my legs were completely trashed and my left knee was a little bit sore. I suppose that’s not too surprising though. Running on snow is hard! So I took a rest day on Tuesday and spent a little bit of time on my stationary bike on Wednesday. Haha and actually, part of the reason why I didn’t run yesterday was because it felt like -12 degrees outside and I didn’t feel like dealing with that kind of cold. It just didn’t sound like fun.

It’s looking like we’re not gonna have to worry about the crazy cold for much longer though! I mean, look at Sunday. That’s basically shorts weather at this point!!

img_9073

It was still pretty chilly this morning though. It felt like 7ย  degrees when I woke up, which not gonna lie, felt a little bit toasty after -12 the day before hahaha. But since it was a tad bit warmer out and my legs felt a lot better, I figured I’d better do some running today. So I went out and did 20 easy minutes. I still had a bit of a niggle going on in my knee, so I figured short and sweet was a good idea for today. Plus there were still some icy patches on the road and that’s what more likely than not made my knee sore in the first place haha.

img_9080-2

So, Death Of A Bachelor kept me entertained during my warm up and run this morning, but I need some new albums to listen to while I run. Suggestions?? Please! I’m getting really bored with most of my music lately haha. I need some new tunes!

img_9079

Alrighty then! This is kinda super random, but aren’t all of my “Thursday Things” posts? Anyway, so a couple of months ago I saw an ad for this app called Achievement on Facebook. The ad basically claimed that you could earn a little bit of extra cash by being active. Of course I initially thought it was bullshit, but I did a little bit of research, downloaded the app, and discovered that it’s actually legit! Or at least it seems that way so far. So basically, you earn points by syncing apps like myfitnesspal, Strava, Garmin Connect, the FitBit app, Apple health and other apps like that, and basically just using them haha. It seems like you earn the most points by just logging steps but you still get a few by logging your meals, activities and what not. Then once you earn 10,000 they supposedly send you $10, either through PayPal or direct depostit. I haven’t gotten that far yet (I’m getting close though!) but I’ll let you know if I actually get $10!

img_9072

So obviously it’s not a lot of money, but hey, it’s something! And basically all you have to do is use health/fitness apps that you already use! And I’m not getting any kind of compensation or rewards, or anything like that for talking about this app. I just thought it was pretty spiffy and wanted to share it with you guys! ๐Ÿ™‚ If you’re at all interested, here’s Achievement’s website!

Anyway, I believe that’s all I’ve got to talk about for today! Haha now that the holiday’s are over it feels like I’ve just got nothing going on and very little to talk about at the moment. Especially since I’m just slowly working back into running and whatnot, so nothing very exciting is really happening right now. But I do have one race on the schedule in May and a few others that I want to do this year, along with all of my other running goals/plans. So hopefully before too long things will start picking up again! Haha but I just feel like I’m being kinda boring at the moment. Oh well, can’t do much about that except keeping up with what I’m doing. Which like I said, isn’t much, especially running-wise, but I do feel like I’m making some progress on that front. Slow progress. But progress nonetheless!

Happy Friday eve everyone! I hope everyone’s had a great week so far!!

~Ashley

img_9071

Oh yeah, and I’m bringing back the blonde hair streak thingy!! I don’t remember if I mentioned that on here yet haha. I’m kinda over the whole black hair thing, so I’m just letting that fade and working on bringing the blonde thing back. Right now it’s kinda orange, but hopefully it’ll only take one more round of bleaching to turn all the way blonde again. Like everything I’ve got going on right now, it’s a slow process.

Ok, now I’m done. ๐Ÿ˜‰
