A dirty blonde.

My hair color that is. Or at least that’s what my hairdresser tells me. She wouldn’t lie to me, right?

I’ve always had some sort of blonde color in my hair. Back in the old days, it was more blonde “el natural”. Highlights had not come around yet. Little did I know, I was saving hundreds of dollars. Seriously, why do partial highlights cost almost a $100? Riddle me that Tabatha.

Well, with peer pressure mounting, I persuaded my mother that I had to have highlights. I stated my case that I would be the laughing stock of the entire high school. I need to look purdy, MA!! Oh, how pleasant of a teen I must have been. Sorry, Mom.

She reluctantly said yes. I bolted to the salon, looked at the hair dresser, and said, “Let’s do this.” And the rest, as they say, is history. I’ve been highlighting my hair ever since. Yep. Even though I begrudgingly spend money on hair care, I do feel better about myself when I leave the salon. There’s something about having freshly painted locks that makes me feel good. I don’t do it every month because that would break the bank. But every quarter I sit in the chair for two hours and talk to my hair dresser, Leigh, about life and her man problems, and all is right with the world.

Do you want to know what else makes this world right? These brown sugar blondies with toasted hazelnuts. Okay, I am, a huge chocolate lover and was a little skeptical at first about making brownies sans chocolate. But! I’m completely smitten. They are soft, gooey, and have the perfect touch of brown sugar-y goodness. I should have made these sooner!

Oh, and if you if you’re like me, and you need a little chocolate to complete your life. I suggest a sprinkle of cocoa powder.Because dirty blondes have all the fun.
