Who does your hair??

I used to get my hair highlighted every six weeks.. my girl was $150 plus tip.. then they went up to $170 plus tip.. which I guess wouldn't be so so bad if (A) I were rich and (B) I loved the result. But neither of those were the case..

I understand that no one is perfect and she can't possible see what she pulled once it's in the foils.. but hot damn if one side of my head wasn't noticably (to me at least) more highlighted than the other.. every single time. So here I was $200 bucks poorer and ticked when I looked in mirror..

I then went to a friend of a friend who much cheaper at around $80 plus tip.. and she did do a better job.. but even that much money started to bother me.

So off to Target I went and got me some Revlon Honey colored frosting kit.. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either.. kinda how I felt after spending $200 at the salon, except this time is was only $15 bucks.. Score!!

Anywho.. my point is.. I now do my own hair.. and have for the past year.. Here's my latest dye job...

Not too bad, right??

Oh, did I also mention I CUT my own hair?? Um, yeah.. wanna see how well that panned out??

I know it appears as tho I'm sorta slanted.. but I'm really not.. my hair is seriously a full inch shorter on one side than the other.. I did this to myself months ago and just always have it up.. so I say ah, tomorrow.. I don't know anyone that would walk around with hair that lopsided.. I'm shocked but too lazy that I have let it go for this long..

Win some, lose some..


I was feeling like crap yesterday so I decided to go get my hair cut and then get some fro yo and a few new workout tops.. anywho.. I'm at the haircutting place and after the girl cut some, she asked me to stand up and finished it with me standing up. I've never heard of this before, but I was pretty happy because I took it to mean my hair was too long for her to do in the chair..

Buuut.. she apparently went to Nicole's Hair School.. because homegirl totally left the left side longer like I did! Granted hers was just a small piece, but still.. so much for going to a pro.. yet another reason I will continue to do my own hair =]

My life as a Teen Bride

I am still in Summer mode.. but, Fall is so tempting.. the leaves, the breeze, hoodies and shorts - my favorite outfit ever! We live a few blocks from the beach and going up there in Sept reminds me of when Frank and I first met..

Fun Fact:

Frank and I met in Sept 2001 when he started working in my office in the Army.. on Sept 22 after some super smiley stares he gave me his number and said "Call me if you ever wanna hang out." so of course I went home and invited 3 of my guy friends over.. then  called Frank and was like "Hey, I'm having some people over if you wanna stop by." bwahaha..

He came over.. and never left.. we were married on Dec 20, 2001... less than 3 months later! Um, can I just add that we didn't do the deed for two months.. as if that's so much better than the first night! LOL but it is darn it!

Now mind you.. I was 22, divorced, and a single mom!! What a catch, right? I joined the Army right out of HS and told my boyfriend of 8 months that I had to break up with him.. he asked me to marry him a few days later and I said "yes" even tho I was totally fine breaking up with him. The teenage mind is brilliant, let me tell ya! I had my Gavin 18 months later and was divorced a year after that.. I was a single mom for almost two years before I met Frank..

Mom, guess what?!
I got married!!
To who?!

Seriously, that's how the conversation went..

But, I'm sure you can all imagine how thrilled Frank's parents were!!! Their 21 year old son marrying a tattooed, divorced, single mom?!?!? Oh yeah.. proudest moment of their lives.. no fear at all..

But here we are.. going on 11 years next month.. =)
