fridays with oscar Intro to Aperol

do i have a fun fridays with oscar today! and a very special guest star, lisa from the opens in a new windowSilver Stylist. swing by her site and say hello! lisa is also on opens in a new windowInstagram and opens in a new windowFacebook. yes, it’s friday time to kick up our heels and relax. what better way to do that than sharing a cocktail and a ladies’ lunch with one of your besties? lisa and i have been gal pals since i moved to Georgia five years ago! she’s a silver hair sister, blogging buddy, and truly one of my dearest friends that i love to spend time with, whether chatting on the phone, texting, or in-person. the commute from door to door is forty-five minutes, so we have to plan our get-togethers ahead of time. but we try our best to squeeze in a monthly lunch, whether in Athens, Atlanta, or somewhere in-between.

of course, oscar is here for his weekly gig. believe you me; this dog never misses out on extra love and attention when someone walks through our front door. oscar has yet to meet a human he didn’t love, and the love is bound to return, right?!

    Lisa and you have such pretty grey hair. My hair is turning salt and pepper gray. I’ve noticed it doesn’t look shiny anymore as when I had black hair. What hair products do you use and recommend for grey hair?
