I had absolutely nothing to do with the following before and after - aside from a split second decision to walk in and sit in the chair...


I've been feeling shlumpy.


And do you wonder why?  I go through these strange phases wherein I attempt to "grow my hair out" even though I know I don't look right with long hair, nor do I enjoy long hair.  I wish I did.  Really.  I wish I could have that smooth, silky, soft, sexy long hair thing.  But I don't.  I have a large bush.  And when it gets to the point I was currently at, I feel frumpy and boring.  I mean that pony tail?  That's not fun.




But this?  I feel like this is fun.  And yes, it IS longer on one side than the other.  And YES, that IS intentional.


And so I give you a cheap makeover I had nothing to do with but love nonetheless.  It might be my favorite in a while.  


The conversation when I walked in went like this:
hair person: So what are you looking for today?
me: I really don't know.  It's just really sad now.  I like it shorter in the back...
hair person: Well... anything more specific?
me: Um... shorter.  And dramatic.  And more fun.
hair person: that's it?
me: yep.
her: I love you.




And I love her.


My mom says it makes me look younger.  I could kiss her.  Perhaps this might be a good time to tell you that I turn 30 in two weeks?


Perhaps this is also a good time to tell you that I'm taking this week off?  You know, just in case any of you worry and send the cops over to check on me...  I plan on relaxing and having fun in the weeks leading up to my birthday.  Plus I need to get ready for bug and K - I've got big plans for our preschool enrichment activities.  More on that later.  PLUS mr's parents are coming for a visit (yea!) which means I'll be scrubbing.  Everything.  So, maybe there won't be any "relaxing" and "fun."  I'll be back soon!

do you mind doing me a favor and coming over and entering my Uprint giveaway. This is a really exciting giveaway to us blogger to host such a big company but something like this isn't as appealing for people to enter. I am really sad no one is entering. the letterheads don't have to be for business they can just be free stationary that you get to design. I would love if you would go and enter thank you so much for all your support.
Here is the link to the giveaway http://tyandwhitneyulrich.blogspot.com/2011/08/uprinting-giveaway.html

I LOVE your hair, soooo cute! I am not going to lie- 30 was really tough for me. I have 32 coming up in like 2 months and it isn't getting much better. The one saving grace is that I am not old to my kids... yet. Love you, enjoy your time off.
