Thursday was a really exciting day for me, but not in the way I'd hoped it would be...
I discovered on Tuesday that I procrastinated buying jeans and dress pants in a size 12 for so long that I'm actually a size TEN!!! As in 10!
My reward for getting back to a size 10 was to get one of my favorite hair cuts from college. My very favorite requires a LOT of upkeep, so I decided to go for my second favorite.
Unfortunately, the only picture I have of myself with that haircut is this one:
I love that picture, but it doesn't show much of the hair.
So after hours of browsing the intertubes I found THIS one:
(But don't worry, I swear to never make that face. Well maybe if I have like really bad indigestion and am also experiencing an allergic reaction that puffs up my lips to 4x normal size and way too red)
I printed it out nice and big and headed off to zumba.
I felt awesome in zumba. I was having a good time, I can do all of the jumping without my knees hurting, I know the moves now and don't have to concentrate so hard. Just general fun times.
Well about 5 minutes in I had one of those very sudden uncomfortable tickley nostril moments, and after a giant sneeze was sure there was a big ugly booger lurking somewhere.... But I couldn't find it. I kept checking my hands, my shirt, my pants, my sweat towel, the floor. I felt all over my face trying to find it. I tried to subtly check my hair.
Oh well, it must have been a tiny booger and gotten stuck on the bottom of my shoe or something.
When I scurried out to my car to hurry off to my hair appointment I found it. I was checking my mirrors and discovered it.
In the middle of my forehead.
And it wasn't tiny.
So there's that.
And THEN came the haircut. I was so determined to get the haircut just the way I want it that I drove 25 minutes away to the small town by my folks' house and have it done by the person who used to cut it that way for me.
It doesn't look like either of those pictures.
It looks like a puffy mullet with bangs that are way too short, no hair left on the sides of my face, and too much hair left in the back.
I hate it.
And it's going to take MONTHS and MONTHS to grow back enough hair by my face to rescue it.
I figure in 4-6 months it will actually grow out to a pretty hair cut...
In the meantime I guess I just get to be really creative in ways to style it?
Good thing it's fall and I have an extensive hat collection!
So just remember, no matter how bad things may seem, you don't have a femullet. So things could be worse!
