Resourceful and crafty

I got a new haircut. Side swept bangs. Layers. Here are some photos:





In other news, here's what happened last night.

As a future FS family member, I'll need to be resourceful and crafty. Innovative and entrepreneurial. So I was getting ready to open a bottle of wine last night. Let me just say, I'm not a big drinker. One glass of wine a week tops. So...
I got out the goofy cork puller, instead of the regular cork screw, to save the whole cork for use in my son's science fair project which includes the making of a rocket. See? Crafty and thrifty. Always thinking of uses for things. Sacrificing for the greater good.


I wiggled the cork puller down around the cork, put the bottle between my knees and gently pulled the cork out. Gently. Really.
With my massive muscles and the sheer brute strength of my lean, toned and svelte arms (yeah, right!?), I BROKE the neck of the bottle. Truly. WTF?

 

I gasped, awed at the mess I made. I vacuumed the glass and wiped down the floor.
Should I throw away the wine? It had glass shards in it, surely. Then I figured, why waste the wine? So I broke out a coffee filter and voila!

Resourceful.

The only problem is that it is a 1.5 liter bottle. How'm I gonna recork it? So, gotta drink it all...
Just kidding.

Lovely haircut and great save on the wine. Will need to remember that if I break a wine bottle before the wine is all gone!

Very resourceful, but good grief, crazy about that bottle!

I love the hair, very cute! You are good as far as coming up with the coffee filter. I agree completely you must be resourceful and flexible. The bottle obviously wasn't flexible, but you were : ) Cheers, now drink, drink, drink!

FS, here we come! said...

Yeah, thanks for the hair and muscle appreciation. It turns out the hairdresser was way better at blowing it out straight that I am. Oh well.
