I think I found my hair salon

Oh man I just happened to stumble upon this review when I was looking at Yelp.com for restaurants that could work for the rehearsal dinner.

SanDee's Hair Studio. Look at the pictures of the place! omg! Amazing! I've just sent her an email asking if we could book the place for the morning or afternoon of the wedding day.. such amazing potential for photo ops!

On the rehearsal dinner front, this place looks pretty neat, but I have no idea if it could accommodate us. I sent them an email, we'll see! Maybe it's just me but a dinner with wine pairings sounds Awesome.

This place also looks gooood, I'd be interested in doing some in-person recon there. mmm indian buffet... Their website says they do "onsite dosa parties." I don't want to sound like an idiot and ask them what the heck that means - anybody know? Wikipedia tells me what a dosa is, still not quite sure how you make a party of it... oh dang I just realized that website only shows locations in Gaithersburg and some other place in MD... phooey! I guess there's a difference between "Woodland" and "Woodlands." :-(


  1. oooh, love the salon! Soooo cute!

  2. Haha, I don't know what a "dosa" is, unless it's a different spelling for "dosha," which is an Ayurvedic term for mind/body makeup; there are three doshas, Kapha, Pitta, and Vata, and most people are a combination of two, with one being a bit more dominant than the other. For instance, I am a Kapha-Pitta mind/body type. Knowing your dosha helps you to understand what kinds of foods your body requires as well as what foods to avoid. So, it *could* be related to an Indian restaurant that concerns itself with feeding people the right kind of food for their dosha. Anyway, that's all I can contribute to the "dosa" conversation.

    The hair salon is ADORABLE!! Here's an interesting little tidbit: the sunburst clock in that first picture of the salon is the same one (OK, obviously not the SAME one, but very close to it) as the one in my family Christmas photo from 1959!! If I could post a photo with my comment, I would show you! Pretty cool.

    And uh, if there is any in-person recon going on at the Indian restaurant (even if it IS in Gaithersburg), I am seriously here and now volunteering taxi service!! Sounds GREAT!

  3. Oh, I just read Wikipedia's definition of dosa and also saw some recipes on the Google search page, so please disregard my comments about doshas above. :)

    Perhaps a dosa party is like a fondue party! With the different fillings and sauces, sounds like you could have quite the tasting party. Who knows? but it sure sounds yummy! And Sarah, it sounds like something interesting to try making, don't you think? Made of rice and black lentils, it really sounds like a wonderful protein-rich dish!

    I reiterate my recon offer. :)

  4. i just found your site, why don't you update it anymore? i enjoy reading it...
