funny...

We're heading out in a little while for a family camping trip. John took today off (so glad!) and we went to Walmart together this morning to get the last of the stuff we need for the weekend.

As we were leaving, I was listing all the things I still need to do before we can pull out, one of which was take a shower. I casually said something like "that won't take long though because all I'm going to do is pull my hair up in a ponytail".

John said, "Yeah, me too."

If that's not funny to you, then you either don't know my husband or you haven't seen him in quite some time.

John wears his hair in a ponytail these days. Uh-huh. He really does. And until Tuesday when he went for a haircut, his hair was longer than mine.

There are a lot of things I envisioned sharing with John over the course of our marriage, but hair bands was never one of them.

So...about camping. I'm pretty sure we're going to freeze our tails off. The temp right now is 54 degrees, and we're camping up in the mountains at 10,000 feet. I just packed my down parka! It should be tons of fun despite the weather! We're going with some good friends and my kids are just so excited to spend the weekend with them. I'll post some pics when we return. Enjoy your weekend.

Wow, 54 during the day is good for us in the wintertime! Awesome weather and I know you guys will have a great time. Stay safe and take tons of photos! :)

Funny. And fun.

That's so funny!! My husband used to have very long hair and we, too, shared hairbands. I actually miss his long hair a bit. My son is now on the long hair bandwagon, it's FINALLY out of the eyes so I'm liking it--he really looks very big! :)

I am WOWED at that temp.!! It's 90something in the deep south and I can guarantee you we won't see 54 (during the day) until mid-October. Can't wait to hear about camping--be sure to take your Tiff's Blog Bell ;) Wait, that's just for hiking, right?!

Oh Mer, that sounds fun! (Er, minus the freezing part.)

Gretchen said...

As long as it's neat, I think long hair can look very cool on dudes.

Now, I'll be a little scared if he does the scrunching or flat iron thing, though... :)

Have fun on your trip!

That sounds like so much fun...I wouldn't mine freezing my tail off this weekend. I get so excited when the cooler weather arrives! I know you'll have an awesome time, and I'm sure it goes without saying...take pictures! :)

Holly said...

Yes, I am laughing! I do no believemy Chris CAN grow his hair longer than mine.

PRAYING for you--for God's warmth in the midst of your cheery group!
Love,
Holly

Mer, That is so funny. I can't imagine sharing hairbands with David. : )

Hope you have fun camping. We went camping last year here in N. Ga. mountains in Nov. We FROZE but had the best time..

Hope you're not as cold as we were. 54 degrees there probably doesn't feel like it does here...biting cold.

Hugs,
Julie

We're loving John's long hair...even though it is SO different from his Arkadelphia days!!

Have so much fun camping...we're so jealous!

Panda-Mom said...

Hey...are you an '89er? Reunion this fall. Hmmm. Me too. ; )

I am jealous of your life in Colorado. We lived there for two years and I would have to say they were the best two years of our families lives. Perfect play ground for our growing boys. Hope your trip was all it was expected to be! BTW I am not actually sure how I found your blog but I do so enjoy it.

I am laughing that you have take a shower and pick up kids on your list!! Knowing you like I do it is about marking things off your list more than actually forgetting them. Reminds me a certain husband we know...mine. Ya'll are too task/detail oriented for your own good sometimes. I appreciate this about you but it is funny!

Have a great time camping!!!!
