A Whole New Me

It's a whole new me..... sort of.

I finally got my haircut today.  My hair stylist, Jen, whom I absolutely love, chopped about 8 inches off.  Yeah, 8 inches!!  I feel like a different person.

My head feels so much lighter!  I has been a year since I cut my hair.  Not really sure why I waited that long.  Maybe it's the money, or I was just too lazy to make the track out to the other side of town.  It is also one of my few "luxuries".  Jen charges $45 for a haircut, which to me is quite high, but I have never been unhappy with a haircut with her.  She understands my hair so well and knows exactly what to do with stick-straight hair that does nothing when you try to curl or style it.  She also knows I'm too lazy to spend any time on my hair.  My hair is now about shoulder length, layered, and feels so much lighter.  It feels wonderful!  It is still long enough to put up in a ponytail so it won't drive me crazy when I am sweating like a pig when working out.  I can't stand having hair stick to my neck and face.

As for my grays, Jen suggested that I not worry about coloring or highlighting my hair.  If When I am pregnant, I won't be able to color or highlight my hair once it starts growing out, then it would look pretty bad.  She suggested just plucking the grays out.  Don't you just love a hair stylist that tells you not to spend any more money on your hair?

Tomorrow is my MIL's birthday.  Her and my FIL will be driving into town and we will have dinner with them and my SIL's family at a restaurant.  Somehow, not really sure how, my house was offered to host family for cake after dinner.  So that means I need to clean my house!!  I hate cleaning!

We rarely have company over and I am the worst housekeeper in the world.  But if having the in-laws over is not a good reason to clean the house, I'm not sure what is!
(By the way, no one in their right mind should look that happy cleaning!)

Time to hide all my IVF meds!

OK, I have to go do some cleaning now (reluctantly..... I'd rather sit on my butt and read blogs)!


  1. Hey there. I just wanted to say hi. I found your blog one day when I was blog hopping around, and have really enjoyed it! I agree that no one should look that happy (or refreshed) when cleaning! :)

  2. I'm so glad that you like your new haircut! I hate to clean myself.

  3. I always feel good after a hair cut!

    We invite people over so it gives us reason to clean the house! Have a great weekend!

  4. i bet your hair is cute! fresh look for spring and baby making!

  5. lol... there is no way that you are the worst housekeeper. That would be me!

    I've been needing to get a cut and colour for a while now. The thing is, I've lived in this town for almost three years and I have yet to find a hairdresser I like and trust.

    I wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for an award over at my blog. You may have had it before... but one can never get too many awards, right? :)
