♪YES (not Oops) ~ I did it again♫

Hair Donate 2008

Catch of the Day: Right after I interviewed for my Ph.D. & performed in our Opera, I went to my hometown hairdresser!

We’ll call this the Dr. Dispo makeover

Tomorrow is the Big Day, as my family and take off to my Dissertation Defense!

Meanwhile, we actually caught three films on DVD during THANKSgiving weekend:

Initially, I only was interested in Aloha, mainly for the Air Force (not to mention Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone who I especially liked as Gwen Stacy from The Amazing Spider-Man, and Rachel McAdams from The Notebook that we watched on our first Movie Night with my parents as empty nesters a decade ago) ~ but I ended up sticking around with my folks for the rest to make the most out of our time together (and ended up getting hair inspiration from the other two movies ~ especially from Blake Lively as Adeline, a.k.a. Amanda and Jenny).

After I present my sports study, these are the *NEW* football flicks that I must catch that are relevant to my research:

Workout Wednesday: Double Dip, DON’T Trip + Tips

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Health, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Sports, Travel, Weekly Wonders, Workout Wednesday, Yours Truly on 03/11/2015 at 09:00

Let’s do double leg raises!

These will work out not just our legs and lower back, but also our hip flexors as we twist …

We’ll get creative by making shapes.

As we’re laying down, we’ll do the following sequence of 10 per set:

  • Legs together
  • Spiral/tornado up then down
  • Scissor legs ~ spread out then bring back together
  • Draw ♥hearts♥ for Belated ♥Valentine’s♥ Day
  • Draw four-leaf ♣clovers♣ for Early ♣St. Patrick’s♣ Day
St. Patty's Cat

♣St. Pat’s♣ Cat inspiration: Soon-to-Be Bday Girl *ASIA* (in almost 2wks) is chillaxin’ w/♣Good Luck♣ Care Bears ~ we can reward ourselves w/R&R after we work out our legs & core to score! #DISPObustAFlow

Bold Gold as the accent nail

Last Saturday, when I got ready for the ♥Valentine’s♥ dinner dance,  I still stayed productive by hitting the park to dry my nails during a fun run & quickie workout

Walking uphill in these platforms is a workout in itself! No pole or 18 hole!

LMFAO‘s ♪Party Rock Anthem♫ & ♫Sexy & I Know It♪ come to my mind!

¿Tienes agua? My campaign for H2O + my attempt for this DISPO @ the Baby Grand Piano to pull a Cassey Ho #DISPObustAFlow

Despite insoles to alleviate the platform pain, I must admit that I suffered through shuffling (i.e., ♫Cupid Shuffle♪) + salsa y bailando en general yet still managed to have a blast!

IMG_2501

Taking a break from dancing & photographing … Here’s how I did my hair (when it held up): I kept it braided all day ’til I got ready, then separated into 2 sections ~ teased the top & put into a braid to wrap around the bottom, which I curled.
