Blonde and short!
For my friends that say they read my blog in the mornings as a devotional with their morning cup of coffee, SORRY. There is no inspiration here today! :) It's just me, me, me and I, I, I!!
Remember this? Well, read #1 on the list to refresh your memory. It's all about my hair. My hair has been a huge topic lately between me and my husband. He's always wanted it long and I thought I did too. But the truth is, I love it short and I feel good when it's short and I think I get the most compliments when it's short. And hey! Who doesn't like compliments?! Believe it or not, I have even been praying about my hair. "Lord, please help me decide what to do with my hair and when I do it, please help me not to regret my decision." Because we all know how horrible it is to make a bad choice on our hair. That's why I don't do anything drastic while pregnant because I could change my mind after it's too late. I went to Beauty School, so I am used to changing my hair cut, color and whatever else. If you know me, you know I am a short-haired kind of girl and I just don't feel good with it long. I never wear my hair down. Never! It's always in a ponytail or in a clip. Pregnancy, flat irons and color has taken its toll on my hair in a big way. I have tried so many things to heal this breakage issue but nothing works. Honest to goodness, I have not used in a blow-dryer on my hair in over six months and I have not used a flat iron in almost a year. Still, it is breaking off big time!
Soooooo last night I decided to go short again. If you happen to see Pink on American Idol tonight, that is how I want it. It actually used to look like that when I was single and for the first three years of my marriage. When Jeremy met me, it was shorter than his and blonde. My natural color is blonde but, right now I have it brown with some red highlights. I don't like it! I saw Pink interviewed last week and decided that was what I was going to do. Then tonight we were getting ready to watch AI and the kids were going nuts so we paused it. While it was paused, the phone rang. It was my friend Erika. She put her daughter, Kylie, on the phone to tell me that she saw me on TV. While Pink was singing, Kylie yelled, "There's Miss Amanda on TV!!" Funny thing is, Erika and Kyle have seen my hair like that but not Kylie. When Kylie was born, my hair was nothing like that. I'm not sure why Kylie said that tonight but I thought it was hilarious and I think Pink is pretty and she can sing good so maybe Kylie was complementing me! :) I hope so!
As soon as I figure out who in the heck is a good short hair stylist and colorist, I am there! I have to find someone since my Mom lives three hours away. I can't wait!!!!!! So if you live in Austin and you know a place I can go, this will be my Mother's day present!!! I'm so excited that I don't know if I can sleep tonight! This girl is about to have her funk back! Thank you Jeremy! Thank you for letting me be ME.
Here's a few pics of all the things I have done through the years! Oh and if you don't want me to cut it, don't comment! :) I've made up my mind!
