at which point I said... you can never "remind" me that I had pink hair in college. Alternately titled... What is black, white, and red all over?

Today was fun... fun for several reasons.
  1. Egan is just cute, and we have tons of fun with him.
  2. It was Blake's day off and we got to hang out... which leads to point number 3...
  3. Blake made me laugh and can no longer make fun of the fact that my hair was pink in college. (ok, so it was pink, then purple, then red with blonde highlights, and then some shade of orange, before returning to various shades of brown or blonde depending on the day. Yeah, got it... so that's not the point here, but in case you were wondering, SHE was my influence.) Back to the story. Blake made me laugh several times, but never harder than when he did this:
What is Blake doing looking under the car, you ask? Well, he wasn't really looking under the car as much as he was putting on clothes... and yes, that is a parking lot behind him. He was putting on clothes because today is a holiday... a very big holiday, in fact. Today is the holiday where we pay respect to cows everywhere. Never heard of it? Me either, but Blake decided that it was important that we participate. He even worked really hard in preparation for today, and I think you will understand what I mean after you take a look at the following photo...


prepare yourself.


here is comes!


Yes, that is for real, and no, there was no gun pointing at him off camera. He volunteered to do this, well not so much volunteered as took on a dare. He still did it willingly though.
Kudos, Blake. You look cute. Was it worth the free Chick-fil-a meal?
Egan is going to die here in about 12 years when we are no longer cool and I decide to bring this picture out.
Thanks for making my day, and making me laugh. You are the best.


  1. Egan WILL be embarrassed??? What about his parents, grandparents, parents-in-law, etc?!!!
    Cute, really cute!

  2. Yes, that's my son! And, Whitney... one day you will have a son just like Blake! We love you!!!

  3. Awesome. Did you "You Won't" Blake into this?
    And...I don't remember it being my idea to go pink. I applied the color, I'm sure, but I didn't pick it. However, those days have prepared me well. My sister and I had a community bathroom haircolor party this weekend. She helped me highlight with the cap, and I used the leftovers to foil hers. I had to stand in the bathtub while she leaned her head over the side to rinse it out. Good times. Made me miss you.
    BTW, I'm in Ft. Worth for part of the weekend - Thursday and Sunday - if you want to meet up. I'll let you know for sure when and where I'll be.
    PS - Where do you even get an adult cow suit?
