I just got a bloggy haircut...and it feels goooooood

You know that feeling?

The before you get the long overdue {blog}haircut feeling?

Haggard looking, ratty hair, tired eyes, ratty hair (did I say that already?). I don't even do my bloggy hair. It's between that stage of is your hair straight OR curly? Cause I can't tell.

I kept eying out that {blog}salon. And I can't justify (yet) that I can spend the money.

One day, I get tax money back and I say...

Girl, you DESERVE a present.

And so I take the plunge into April Showers blogsalon.

And let me tell you. I wait, excited, for them to call my name.

"Would you like some hot tea while you wait?"

Why yes I would.

"Hand massage? April's just finishing up with her last zillion clients.
"

Don't mind if you do.

And finally...my name is called and the magic begins.

You know the rest....we talk, we shampoo, I fall asleep cause any mother who gets a head massage is going down...and then the cut. And I walk out a different woman.

****************
Those that have been around me awhile, knows it looks a little different. And I'm glad!

God Bless April and her incredible patience.

The amount of email back and forth with the following...

Umm...can my husband...

Oh uh, can my kid...

Uh, Uh, about the dog...

Otay, how about the layout...

Sigh.

If I were her I'd be banging my head on whatever hurt the most.

Maybe she did.

Whichever, we finally completed it to the point where I completely smiled and clapped my hands like my 2 year old when I give her a cookie.

And I told April that this would be THE I LOVE APRIL SHOWERS FOREVER post. :)



So please check her out!!! Just click her little thing.

Anyone that makes me look good while sitting on a couch=love.

Thanks April!!!

I found her a week or so ago. She does great work. Once I get an idea of what I want, I'm going to have her fancy my place up a bit.

Can't see your header right now for some reason, but if it looks like your button... How cute! I've been thinking of having her do an illustration for me. Just haven't decided if I want the whole "up do" or just the graphic to put it together myself.

Suz said...

I can see the header now... how cute! Would love to live by the water too, but stuck in the Midwest... what's a girl to do?
