I've been feeling so blah lately. I turned 35 in December and while I know it's still considered "young" by some standards...I'm feeling old and just frumpy lately.
I have lost about 6-7 lbs now so that has been a little boost. I'm finally starting to fit better into my clothes. I mean, Avery's only one year old so that's not bad, right? (<------insert sarcasm here). Even though I looooong ago lost all my baby weight from her pregnancy, and was less than my starting PG weight by a couple of pounds (but still overweight), my body is SO different.
While I tell people that Hunter's pregnancy for sure changed my body, Avery's pregnancy WRECKED my body. Ha ha. Thank God these little munchkins are WELL worth it!
So back to my hair. I've been just in that blah-state lately and since I don't have a ton of money, it's not like I could go out and buy a new, flattering wardrobe or anything. And I was overdue for getting my hair done. I had all intentions of getting my normal cut and maybe lightening up with some blond highlights (which I do every spring/summer). And I randomly stumbled across a couple of hairstyle pics on Pinterest, literally the DAY before my appt.
So here is my normal 'do, my "Before" look:
|Granted, this is bed head. Probably not the best "before" shot.|
I love it! I was afraid I'd panic when I saw how much hair was gone (this is the SHORTEST I've ever gone) but I actually felt so much freer, and lighter...and SASSY!
I feel like I'm getting some of my "spunk" back. Next on the agenda, STOP BITING MY DAMN NAILS so I can finally use the gift card I've had for two years for a manicure!
