Travel to Europe!

I recently took my first trip to Germany! I absolutely loved it! It was very interesting to learn about the country and their culture. I was only there for a week and it seemed like the shortest week ever, next time we plan to stay longer. We did a lot of sightseeing on the days the weather was nice. We had a chance to tour the tallest cathedral in the world; Ulm Minster. We traveled to the cities of Neu-Ulm and Stuttgart, shopped at the local markets and dined at Germany resturants that server country favorites like schnitzel, spatzle, brez’n, and bratwurst. Below are a few pictures I took while at the Ulm Minster.

Become a redhead!

I did it!  I finally said what the heck and colored my hair red! I’ve had highlights before but had never colored a big section of my hair. Plus,  I’m talking about permanent hair dye! So I was a little afraid of what might happen to my hair.

Anyways, I did it and I was pretty pleased with the results. I may even color my hair again. I actually like to experiment now. 🙂
