It's time for a change

Here I am sporting a not so fashionable thick patch of gray hair. I'm not fond of it and I think it ages me. Apparently Mark agreed because he took it upon himself to call my hairdresser and scheduled me an appointment. It's been a LONG time since I've had my hair done...we're talking the end of August. I have taken the scrapbooking scissors to my bangs several times for the benefit of seeing, but that's it. Get this...Mark told her to dye it darker brown and give me red highlights. LOL! Have you even known a man to be so opinionated? Especially about things most men don't give a hoot about. He's like "what? I know what I like and I like your hair dark." To be honest, he is opinionated about EVERYTHING. Sometimes it's a good thing and sometimes it's really irritating. Well this afternoon at 2:00 is my scheduled appointment. Usually I have her do blonde highlights, but this time I will to what he wants. Heck...it's only hair and it will make him happy. I'm a little scared and I really hope I like it because even though it's only hair, my hair doesn't grow fast at all. I will edit and update this post with an after picture.

Just some random stuff...
  • I spent the better part of Monday in bed with way bad cramps. Mark brought home pizza for dinner since it was obvious I wasn't able to cook.
  • Baby Mark is growing huge. He's 9 1/2 months old at 21 pounds. In the few weeks since they moved out he has bulked up. He crawls and pulls himself up to furniture....so cute! Need to take a picture of him. Still can't wrap my finger around being a grandma...let alone having a second grandson in August. WOW!
  • Haven't forgotten about the fluffy girls club. When Chad came, that threw me off and I haven't been able to get back on track. I will start exercising as soon as my cramps go away. Really gotta work on the water intake too.
  • I got a new calling in church. I'm in charge of updating the ward website with activities, sending out emails of other activities that don't belong on the ward website, making cute handouts and posters, etc.
  • Chad's internet is down, so I haven't got to talk to him lately. I miss that boy. I have seen a few of you have your rubber ducky's ready to mail. They are so cute! Thank you so much. I hope he gets a huge collection of them.
  • I'm sad to say that I haven't been able to get caught up with everyone's blogs yet, but I'm working on it. I've enjoyed the ones I have gotten too.
  • My house is REALLY quiet....very strange (yet nice) for summertime!
  • We are really enjoying all the new produce. I cut up the cantaloupe to have with Father's Day breakfast and it was one of the best I've ever had. I ate some more of it with lunch yesterday. The boys have been eating the apples, peaches, grapes, bananas and cucumbers so far.
  • Thinking I really need to get dressed since I'm still in pajamas from yesterday. I can't wash my hair until after my hair appointment, so it's going up because it's gross and ugly!
  • Wish me luck today!!!

Enjoy your pampering today. There's nothing like a good shampoo/scalp massage when life gets crazy. Whishing you the most relaxing of afternoons :0)

Congrats on the new calling...sounds like the perfect one for you! As for the hair appointment...my fingers are crossed that you love it! It cracked me up that Mark called the hairdresser himself! I think it is great that he takes the time to really think about how he'd like to see your hair...but maybe deciding together is better?! Can't wait to see!!!

I know where Shady Dells is. I have drove by there many times but have not stayed there. they were even on a HGTV program one time too. Cute place..I love vintage travel trailers. My parents had one while I was growing up. It was made in the 50's and the sold it in the 80's for 600.00. what a steal.

What a great calling! Right now I have the cub scouts and although I love the boys, the moms are driving me crazy! LOL

Can't wait to see the new do. I haven't exactly been working hard on the fluffy girls club, need to get on track. I am up to four glass of water a day. I'm not sure how anyone has time to drink 8!

Valerie said...

I know your hair will look awesome. I think red hi-lites will look good. My hubby is opinionated as well but I like him that way. I saw a woman the other day around my age but her hair was completely gray. I asked if he thought I should let my hair go gray. He immediately replied..."NO, I don't think that would look good on you!" End of discussion. He also told me he didn't think I should wear brown clothing...he doesn't like that color on me! Men!!! Gotta love 'em!

Oh...how wonderful that someone is willing to make a hair appointment for you! I hope it turns out great...as I'm sure it will, maybe it will help your cramps go away?

You have been busy! I hope your computer gets fixed soon.
You got new hair, a new car....maybe a new computer is coming your way? :)

That's all the grey you had since LAST August? I go every 7 weeks now. My hair stylist should put me on a flex plan.
