I paid a fortune to highlight my hair today and I don't even know why I did it now. It sucked sitting in the chair not being able to see anyone. I don't like getting my hair washed and I think it looks too bold. I was told that young people choose chunky highlights and older people get subtle, so I went with a little of both. I was trying to do something for myself, I think I'd rather have gotten another tattoo, lasts longer, its cheaper & less painful!

I think it looks pretty! I'm always afraid to get highlights. Either I'd hate it and have to grow it out, or I'd love it and then have to keep doing it.

Thank you. The funny thing is they look fake b/c they don't even put them next to your scalp! With your dark hair you could put reddish highlights too & that would look cool.

I think they look really lovely :) I stopped coloring my hair because i was afraid that one of these days my roots were going to start coming in grey and i will have missed that gradual greying of my hair. Silly, i know :O

How have you been doing lately?

Don't worry! You won't miss it, ha ha. Or you will get lucky like me and get stark white hair!

Thank you for the book recommendation on my blog. I've already bookmarked it to purchase it.

I'm sorry you have already gone through this loss, it SUCKS!

Oh, and btw, I think your hair looks beautiful--and I'm not just saying that. :o)

Rachd, thank you for writing. I think you will really appreciate the book, it helped me make some sense out of the world I found myself in.
I will keep in touch. My family sends our love to yours.

About Me

My photo
I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
