Rockin’ The New Hair Do

It is so nice to finally have my hair cut. It was looking like ass, but now it’s all purdy and cute again 😀 I actually look presentable! I know, you all want pictures…

Let’s start with the way my hair looked this morning when I went to work (excuse the lack of make up – I swear, I really do have eyelashes & eyebrows!).

As you can see, there is just too much hair. And you should be able to tell from the straight hair on top and curly on the bottom, that I wear it in a ponytail 24/7. Why? Because you can’t do anything with hair that long and that damaged at the roots – it doesn’t behave.

Off to work I went with my rat’s nest. It was another busy day, but at least I brought a good lunch.

Chicken sammy – chicken, buttah, salt & pepper, on Irene’s Bakery Multigrain bread. To me, this is the ultimate, simple chicken sandwich. Brings me back. Mmmm.

The veggies – carrot & cucumber.

food 3723

A lovely gala apple (you lucked out, I was THIS CLOSE to taking the honeydew/strawberry combo again).

food 3726

Hummus for the veggies, Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl for the apple.

And a Cherry Pie Larabar to munch on while at the salon so I wouldn’t try and eat my arm. I actually only had half.

I think I had a little garlic overload with lunch, between the hummus and the seasoning on my chicken – I had a little upset tummy at work after eating lunch. Oh garlic, why you gotta be like that? You taste so good, but sometimes you hurt so bad.

Then it was off to the salon. I love my salon – it’s called Fish. Can you guess why I picked it? HA! But it’s a great, funky place. They always serve you tea from Silk Road (yum) – iced in the summer, hot in the winter. My stylist, Jenna, its awesome too. I was pretty much giving her free reign today with the cut. I thought she might want to go short, but turns out, she likes the length and how it frames my face. I dunno, I think I used to work the short hair pretty well.


(Awwwwwww…I was 2. Also proves the curl is natural. I just really like this picture, and needed an excuse to post it 😉 )

So what happened? Let’s check it out!

Yay! I also love how you can’t see my plethora of grey hairs in the photos 😉 It’s amazing how much it curls up when you take just a few inches off in length.

I don’t even want to talk about how many photos I took before I finally got all of my head in the picture. And don’t mind the lack of smile – if I try and do that AND take a self portrait, well, it’s all bad.

So after I had the new hair, I was off to find dinner. I went to Pita Pit, all excited to get a tasty pita. Jerks only take cash. I never have cash on me! I was not about to walk all the way back to my bank just to get a freakin’ pita, so I went home. I dropped my work stuff off, and headed out again, finally settling on another chicken sandwich from the Safeway deli. Then I went over to my friend’s place and we Rock(band)ed the night away! Well, until 10:30 anyways – it is a school night after all.

So that, my friends, is my Thursday. I’m now going to sip my tea and finish watching the news. Then it’s sleepy time. Night!

    Curly hair ROCKS!! When I was young I hated my curly hair, but I’ve come to terms with it and now I realize just how lucky we are to have curly hair. It’s unique and we never have to complain about having flat hair! Your baby picture is so adorable. I hope my kids have curly hair because I LOVE little kids with curls, I think they are precious.
