M & M Bars

Today I got my hair cut. For the first time since summer. I have this thing about getting hair cuts. That thing cuts are bad. I cannot part with my locks if my life depended on it. It's a problem. So today when I went in I braced myself for the fact that two inches of dead ends might just have to come off, but then I was relieved when she only had to take an inch off. Whew, all that worrying for no reason. I got so excited and texted my mom saying I finally got a hair cut! And when I told her only an inch she replied that's not a hair cut, that's a trim. No, no, no that's a cut in my book.

After my hair cut I zipped into Wegmans because every time I drive by I feel the need to go in. And I wanted sushi for lunch. And I'm nearing the end of my Crystal Light stash. Well. They were all out of Peach Mango Crystal Light. WHAT THE HECK. But I did pick up some Valentine's M & M's and whipped up some cookie bars. In one bowl. Magnificent. Because I hate dishes.
