I am beginning to think there is more of my hair on the bathroom floor than my head. My hair is shedding like CRAZY and I am so tempted to cut it off completely… like off off… So short I have the same amount of hair as Aidan short. I’m trying not to be rash since I know the extra (excessive) shedding is more than likely connected to the fact I gave birth four months ago. Right now I’m just thinking of it as a trade… My hair for my sweet baby girl. In the meantime, I’m trying my best not to stress about it. It’s only hair right? Besides if my Pinterest beauty board is any indication of what I want then there’s a haircut in my future.
I started to let my hair grow out while we were still in El Paso because my stylist took leave to have rotator cuff surgery and shortly after her husband got orders and they moved back east. After all I went through to find her I decided I wasn’t up to chair hopping again so I kinda just let it be. If I wanted a trim I’d just pop over to SuperCuts.
I’m rambling…. Please forgive my bald headed musings… This is what staying up late to watch Jimmy Fallon and getting up early to get the kids ready for school does to me.
Tuesday state agencies in South Carolina recognized Confederate Memorial Day (sigh) so we were off. I decided to take the day and use it as a pamper day/belated Mother’s Day gift for myself. I scheduled a facial at Urban Nirvana and it was AWESOME!!! When I left my face looked incredible. My skin had a bright dewy look and I could not stop looking in the mirror! Lisa, my esthetician was fabulous!!! ! I even purchased the Skinceuticals Simply Clean facial cleanser she recommended. I think I will be adding this little luxury to my regular routine. I mean I have to pay extra attention to my skin since I’m in my 30’s now right???
After leaving the spa I hurried over to Quiescence Hair, Skin & Nails to see my stylist Tonya. As usual she tamed my hair and I left her chair with a smile on my face. She added some very sassy highlights that I think make me look just right for the season. We’ll see what the hubs thinks when I see him in a few weeks 🙂
I contemplated going home after getting my hair done, but I thought why stop the fun??? Sooooo next I went to lunch and then the movies. Jumping the Broom was cute and funny. I laughed, cried, and drooled over Laz & Pooch (yum).
Well you’d THINK that I would have stopped there, buuuuuut the last thing on the agenda before picking up The Girl & The Boy was to run and get my little eyebrows tamed.
I cannot remember a time where I spent the entire day by myself doing whatever I wanted and it was all for me. I loved the feeling. After I left the salon I felt sexy and totally relaxed. I’ve resolved to do this more often, because as I learned from the “wise” Joe Guidice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey “Happy Wife Happy Life.” (and my good friend Charm didn’t think you could learn anything from reality tv!)
