Mark's Uncle Bob is always super generous with his Christmas gifts, and gets us tickets to whatever cool show is in town (in the past 3 years, we've been to Cirque du Soleil twice and the circus once). This year he got us tix to Cavalia, which was created by one of the founders of Cirque. We were totally excited to go, and see some insane horse tricks...and then we were really let down when the show started. We were extremely under-impressed. I kept waiting for the horses to do something spectacular - never happened. But it was still a fun date day; Atlantic Station is so fun during the holidays.

Trying to Become a Redhead

I'm in love with Scarlett Johansson's hair from her photo spread in Glamour's November issue. She looks great, right? So I sent a pic of it to my new hairstylists and we gave it a go. First try...didn't really work out. Apparently my hair doesn't take color too well (I learned). She used a ton of red dye and it basically just looked really dark.

Yes, Mark is a sicko...but I look cute so I'm posting this picture anyway!

So I went back a week later and we tried again. Still doesn't look like Scarlett's (unfortunately) but it's still pretty fun, and I've been getting tons of compliments so that's always nice.

Nerd Alert

Ok, so this post is totally nerdy but oh well. For the past week or 2, I've been trying to get into couponing. Exciting, I know. But, as I have no job and basically no life, I have some free time and decided I should try to save some money. (Next task...start cooking. We'll see how that one goes!)
Anyway, I have to share a recent deal I got, so you can see that couponing may actually be cool.
I went to Walgreens and bought the following:

5 tubes of Almay One Lash Mascara (four were $6.99, one was $7.99)

A pack of 3 little stretchy headbands ($1.29)

Almay foundation ($9.99)

Mouthwash ($1.99)

So here's the fun part...I paid $17.96 for everything. Good deal, right? And that's not all. After paying, I got $15 cash back (in Walgreens money). So basically that's $2.96 for everything. And I'm set for life with mascara.

Do any of you coupon? What are your favorite stores/websites/etc?

In The Heights

We worked this show at The Fox last night and I just loved it! You should definitely see it if you have the chance!
