I know I said I'd post pics from my vacation, but hold on.
I've been growing my hair out for just over 3 years. Around this time 3 years ago, when I was pregnant with my girl, I decided I wanted to see just how long I could stand my hair getting long. I also had really high hopes of my hair looking like this or this (and just as a little sidenote-Is she not just gorgeous??? Make me sick!). So, for 3 years I've been getting it trimmed every couple of months, and I had some layers cut in, and then......I got the bug.
The fricking 'oooooooooo! I want my hair like THAT!' bug.
I've had my hair so many different lengths. Growing up, I always had it long, and it was a curly fuzzy mess. I tried ironing it on my ironing board, I tried Frizz Ease, I tried blowdrying it straight (can you say Cousin It???). I always wanted it to be straight. Yet, God blessed me with a curly, fuzzy mess. After high school, I decided, what the hell?, and I cut it to my shoulders. Then in college I cut it above my shoulders. Then, after I got married, I chopped it to my ears. I actually had it WAY short once, but I felt uncomfortable with it, so thankful it grew out fast.
All this leads me to say:
I always want what I don't have.
AND I WANT VICTORIA BECKHAM'S HAIR!!!!!
I've looked at her pics before, and I drool. (she's also smokin' hot, so I'm sure that has something to do with it). I'm also sick of just pulling my hair up b/c it has a mind of it's own, and won't look all sexy and luxurious like I've always hoped. And shit, it's getting warm out, so what the hell?
I've been on the fence about doing it for several weeks now. I go back and forth, back and forth. Well, no more walking that damn line.
So. I made an appt. today. I'm chopping it on Friday. And actually, I think I have 10 inches to donate! I'm so excited about that!!!
Here's what I'm going for. What do you think??
Gah, too bad the body doesn't come with the hair. Jeez.
Oh, and did I mention I'm gonna throw some caramel colored highlights in there, like the middle picture. What the hell?, right?
And speaking of 'Walking the line':
I finally saw that movie while in Mexico. Yes, I know, I was in f-ing Mexico, on the shore, what the frick was I doing watching the movie channel??? Hell, I don't know. But that movie was great! I love Johnny Cash's voice, and Mr. Phoenix did a great job. I'm sorta really liking him now. And wow-there's a lot about Johnny Cash I didn't know! If you have been living in a hole like I have, and haven't seen it, go rent it.
Okay, tomorrow I give you the pictures you want, I swear.
