Weekend Roundup

Monday, June 15, 2009

From here on out my weekend officially starts earlier than yours. Neener. So, with my half-day Friday I trotted on over to the Aveda salon in Old Town for a much needed summer style (If you go mention my name, as I just heard they have a referral rewards program). My hairdresser did wonders with my fine locks and my (please make my face look less round) requests. She's a keeper.

That evening, with my new 'do, I became part of the urban-chic artsy crowd, scouting out a new (to me) venue. A friend of a friend was belly dancing, so a group gathered for an evening of culture. To be honest, my one previous experience with belly dancing happened while I was visiting my grandparents and aunt in WA, where I remember oodles of cleavage and dollar-bill stuffing left a queasy impression on my young teenage mind; I was therefore eager to experience something a bit more tasteful and suitable to my adult self.

I was not disappointed.

Middle Eastern vibes, paired with elaborate scarfs (which turned into Oriental fans and created a stream of black and red waves!), added to cranium sword balancing left me speechless.

Other highlights included:
  • A trip to Great Falls for an east coast version of hiking
  • One of my favorite old movies
  • Volunteering with the Duke Ellington Jazz Fest
  • Frozen fruit popsicles
  • Wishing my Grandma a "Happy 85th Birthday!"
