I do not do things for myself often (besides scrapbooking does that count?) I don’t remember the last time I had a pedicure, it’s been 4 months since I’ve had my eyebrows waxed, and a year since I’ve had a trim (besides bangs). I WANT to, it just seems to be the last thing on my lists and by the time I think about it everyone else has plans and I can’t squeeze it in. My hair feels so much better though (can your hair feel better?)

It won’t look like this once I dry it though. I wish I could have someone blow out my hair every day (or even every other day). I think having boys makes me put all the “girly” stuff aside. I need to remember to do things for myself now and then. Even a haircut if it makes me feel that much better!

  1. oh!! you look so good!! I understand what you say about not finding time!! I have the same feeling! I dream about a hairdresser at home!! that would be heaven!!

  2. You look great. ! I went for a hair cut last week and felt wonderful afterwards. I have 3 sons and i think sometimes you can forget to be girly .

  3. I could have totally written this post!
    Especially the part about not doing things for me enough πŸ™‚
    Your hair looks adorable πŸ™‚

  4. Um, hello, gorgeous. Your hair looks awesome, Allison! I was just saying today on twitter that it's always scary to do that first wash and blow-dry after a great cut! Thankfully today, mine ended up looking pretty good, which doesn't always happen. πŸ˜‰

    PS. I think you would look hot with a bob. πŸ˜‰
