Makeover

This was a weird week. Mike was off, but the kids all had school. We had two meet the teacher nights for the boys and started up regular preschool days for baby girl. I tried to create an "office" in the middle of my living room (more on that later) and Mike dug several more tree roots out of our fence line.. a huge relief even if the fence is still a mess. I got almost nothing done that I wanted to and even less than I should for the basics. BUT I did get new glasses and a new haircut. I am not one for posting pics of myself, as I almost always hate them, but I didn't do a birthday picture this year and I


may never look this good


again.


For reals. LOVE IT. I feel like I've lost ten pounds (no, seriously, my hair is that heavy) and like I no longer have wadded up college hair or wadded up new mom hair. Now the question is, how good will the girl who only likes to pay for a haircut 2 or 3 times a year when she is feeling really gross and desperate be about maintaining an actual hairstyle. :-)

Elissa I LOVE IT! I glanced down and thought the makeover was going to be about the shower curtain but my first thought was, look at that hair! Even just from the back. You look Fabulous Dahlin : )

Truly, someone did a fine job on that cut and I know you can keep it up. It's too cute not too!

That looks great! Very chic! It is exactly the cut I wanted, but I was told that my hair won't do that. My hair is ridiculously thick, has a slight wave that completely does its own thing, and refused to do side bangs correctly. So frustrating! Your hair looks so smooth! I will tell you that since I got the supposed side bangs, I have to go in every 6 weeks for a haircut. But if you look and feel that good about yourself, I would say it is totally worth it!

Liss I just read your comment & I have to tell you that you've been on my mind all weekend. Curses that I'm not better with my money cause I'd so love to pay for you to come. I'm not giving up! One of these days we'll get together. Come hell or high water we'll meet one day, lol!!!! (say this while shaking fist into the sky very dramatically) Hope you have a great week.

Hey, hot mama pal. Love the hair. Post the pic to remember. Sloppy ponies and pj pants in the grocery store need to remember the spiffy mama under the hoodie. Love the pic.
