Over the long weekend I saw two movies with Sandra Bullock, The Heat and Gravity. While watching The Heat I commented that every time I see Sandy on film I absolutely LOVE her hair. That girl is adorable. Seriously. And although I know that on movie sets they have the best hair and makeup people in the biz, her hair is always extra special.
Then I watched Gravity. That movie is a-maz-ing. Whoa, you guys! Have you seen it? My jaw was at my knees for most of the show. I was blown away. Sidenote, I was also broken of the whole Sandy always has great hair fascination. After the show the ladies in the loo were all whining and complaining about her short hair wondering if it was a wig. I hope so, Sandy, I really do. Plus, wouldn’t her hair have floated around in space? (Boo, now she’s just getting picky…)

Just a few days ago my little blog turned three. I can’t believe it. I started it back on November 30th, 2010 after I became frustrated with my style and consumed by personal style blogs. I felt like I was in a rut, didn’t have a clear point of view anymore when it came to my look. I’d always been a confident person and always enjoyed getting dressed and trying new things. But that fall, in my first year teaching, I wasn’t feeling like myself and needed a vehicle to help me figure it all out. Enter Lindsay Living.
There are so many great things about blogging. True, it’s time consuming, and arduous at times, but for me the benefits have always outweighed the negatives. I’ve gotten to do some amazing things, like work with companies and be on television last spring, one of those bucket list moments I’ll never forget. I’ve met some amazing girls as a result, a few of whom I’m hoping will continue to become better and better friends. Your sweet comments and personal stories really comforted me during my divorce and so many of you have inspired me in many ways. But above all else, this blog has helped me to get back to me; the truest version of myself. I feel confident. I wear what I want and I own it. I hope to continue blogging here for a long time.
This week I’ll be sharing some photos from the past three years, including this gallery of head shots. Although my hair has stayed relatively the same all these years, it’s changed a bunch in length and color and I’ve tried some different things with the style. I’ve really changed the way I do my makeup, most notably switching to black liquid liner which has since become my trademark. It’s fun to see how I’ve evolved over these last three years. Head back for more flashback photos later this week.
Thanksgiving was such a blessing. I really needed the break and time to recoup and get spoiled by my family. My mama stocked the fridge with my favorite sugar-free Coffee-mate, let me sleep in until 10 (whoa!), worked out with me the morning of Thanksgiving, and I spent some quality time chatting, reading, and tinkering with my blog design with the wonderful sound of football games in the background. I love Thanksgiving.
I took these photos on the way to my mama’s house. I absolutely love road-tripping, especially in my home state. Washington is so beautiful, even in the desert. I’m from a desert city, so I feel right at home once the evergreens thin out and the tumble weeds roll in. These photos were taken at Wild Horses Monument, fifteen surprisingly lifelike horse sculptures on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River. They are the work of Spokane artist David Govedare, and Wild Horses is one of my favorite spots in Washington.
I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends. I have so much to be thankful for this year and want to say thanks for reading this little blog of mine. I love putting it together and appreciate you for reading. Cheers!
