The last pic was me saying, “I'm going to get you!” when he wouldn't stop shooting and got pics of me yawning, fixing my hair, flicking away a mosquito…

My hair is what I call “The Humidity Special.” Every so often I decide that I am no longer going to brush my hair and will embrace my half wavy/half straight locks. I'll let them go natural, maybe even let them dread if they so wish. I realize I get this notion about this time every summer when my hair just won't behave or do anything slightly forming any sort of style. I get out of that funk around August and usually either cut my hair, dye it, or live in a messy updo until Labor Day. Here is my hair in its natural glory!

My mom's birthday is in January, but we bought her a present then that she couldn't enjoy until this weekend. My mom loves Doo-wop, and at Wolf Trap this weekend they had a concert bringing together some of the most well-known singers and groups of the genre. My sister and I decided to make it a Girls Night and we left boyfriends, husbands (and even little toddlers) at home!

I LOVE Wolf Trap – you can hear some of the best performers, can bring your own picnic meal, sit on the grass, have a great view of the stage even from the field, dine and dance under the stars. It's not hard to get to, there's even a shuttle to Wolf Trap from the Vienna Metro station so it's easy access from car or public transportation.

We made a dinner that would be delish but still diet-friendly. We brought white wine plus sparkling pomegranate water; I made my massaged kale salad but without any additions – just lots of lemon juice and zest; field greens with feta, zucchini ribbons, peas and grilled shrimp; celery with an herbed dip my sister made. We also brought bread and an artichoke tapenade but didn't need it with all the other treats.

We had a great time. It was so fun to hear so many iconic songs performed live by the original artists. It was also fun to hear my mom's stories with each song – memories of where she heard it, what she was doing. The three of us had a blast and it makes me even more excited for our Girls Getaway trip to Rehoboth Beach next month!

  1. I actually think your hear looks great like this. Even nicer than when you smooth it out and not at all unprofessional.

  2. I love the “I’m going to get you” pic and I must say – your hair is great! You just look like you are ready for some sun. This hair look reminds me of Drew Barrymore in 50 Dates.
