We have two kids at SB Charter School. It is a wonderful school and I would be glad to answer any questions you might have, just send me a message.

It would make me hesitate. I like people who look natural. I know for sure it would bother dh. Pink hair would just send a message that you are not somehow happy with the way you are and look. Plus I just don't like pink as a color.
Gosh, I want it! In my city, you wouldn't get it under 1.5 million. Just makes me so mad.
