5 Things Friday!

It's been awhile since I've done this, so here are 5 things happening in my world!

1. My precious nephew Rainor, is in town from Wisconsin. We have a big wedding coming up tomorrow, so he didn't want to miss it! I just cannot get enough of this snuggly doll!

2. The big wedding coming up? My amazing brother Dustin, and his beautiful Sydney are getting married tomorrow. We adore her and are so happy to have another sister!

3. Soooo....I like trying new (weird) things. My Mom and I were having a conversation about hair. She told me she used to put mayonnaise on hers when she was younger, and that it made it very soft and shiny. I thought "hmmm...something I've never tried!"
 So I had to try it. She also said she used to straighten her hair with an iron! Just a regular iron! I will not be trying that though.
 It was definitely very strange putting mayo in my hair. The smell was a little overwhelming too. Yuck.

Sorry about the bathroom mirror selfie!!
But I'm happy with the end result! My hair is really soft, and doesn't smell like mayo.  :)


4. I am on week 2 of my 100 mile ultra training. So far, so good! My 2 runs during the week haven't been what they're supposed to be though. I was supposed to do 5 and 6 miles, but both days only did 3. I know as long as I get my long runs in on Saturday and Sunday, I'll be ok. Tomorrow afternoon I'll be running 12 miles. I'm SO looking forward to that!

5. Well...that's about all I got!

QOTD:
What are you doing this weekend?
Have you ever used mayo as a hair treatment?

  1. I have tried the mayo but it was way back in my high school days. And this weekend we are planning to just hang out and heal up. Two of my three girls are sick. :(

  3. Never tried the mayo trick before, and I would probably need to use the entire jar with all my hair! Getting in a 7 miler tomorrow then off to see my mama in PA. She wants me to take her to Hobby Lobby! Should be a fun shopping day!

  4. I've heard of people using mayo to kill lice. Never heard of it used as a hair mask.

  6. I've used mayo in my hair to get tree sap out of it when I was a kid (don't ask, I climbed a lot of trees back then). Never used it as a conditioner, though.
    Tomorrow I'm working all day, and then going to Pittsburgh on Sunday for an interview!

  7. I tried the Mayo thing years ago, I actually forgot about it until you mentioned it.
    This weekend, I am just working (bummer), but Sunday I am hoping to get myself lost in an absolutely fabulous book:)
