Once a year I decide to finally go and get my hair cut. I decided that I really want to do something different. Maybe it's because I feel like a frumpy mom- you know, that feeling all of us stay at home moms get- stuck in a rut because we have no where to dress up to go.
Here's my before picture (yes, I know my hair is in a pony-tail, or as my friend calls it "mom-tail". But that is how I wear it almost everyday in the summertime- until now):
I can not believe how much of a difference a haircut makes! I feel like an entirely new person, and I LOVE it! Seriously, I LOVE it!!! I feel so vain- always looking in the mirror. But how can I not when I'm so dang hot?!? I felt so good about my haircut that on the way home I stopped and bought a new outfit (the one I am wearing in the picture). This is something I NEVER do- I don't impulse shop. If I need a pair of jeans, I go and get one pair. I don't just casually stop in and buy a whole new outfit. But, again: I feel so good about myself- and it's been awhile since this mom has been that way. It feels good.
I came home and ran upstairs and got ready for my date with my own hottie. I didn't let him see me until I had put on some make-up and had the tags off my new clothes. I came downstairs and Ben was in shock- it was really funny. Audra said, "I really super-duper like your haircut" and she kept asking if I was going to have my hair "forever."
Obviously, I know it is just a haircut. But truly, I feel so much better about myself with the new 'do! Whenever I need a pick-me-up, I will be getting my hair done from now on! Oh, and it will no longer be just a once-a-year event.
