Recently Heard At Our House...

I went to the salon the other day, just like I do every six weeks (I know, I know; but seriously, one of the very few things I do to treat myself) for my regular color and cut (wait, I don't color my hair. really, I don't).

Anyway, the woman before me was going to a fancy Christmas party and wanted a cute hairdo so my stylist, Linda, curled her hair in these big beautiful ringlets. It looked gorgeous and I was envious since I've always wanted curls in my straight as a board super fine hair.

Then later, when Linda was blow drying my hair, I said "think you could curl my hair like you did so-and-so's?" She said "Of course!"

So she did. After I saw it, I was wishing I had talked Rick into a date night that night, since all I was going to be doing was going home. What a shame!

When I walked through the door, the boys were on the couch. Cooper was excited that I was home, but when he jumped up to greet me, he stopped and started to laugh. Not just a little giggle, but big 'ol belly laughs.

"Mommy, you look funny!"

Way to pop that bubble, Coop.

Rick just kind of looked at me and said, "I've never seen you with curly hair before." I gave him the "stupid" look.

Two hours later we were sitting on the couch watching a movie, and Rick turns to me and says, "You know, it's kind of growing on me." I said, "The curly hair?" He said, "Yes, I just thought you should know."

Men.

Well, I LOVED the curls, so I managed to get a couple of Christmas pics in. What do you think?


Merry Christmas everyone!!

I think it looks great, I too have straight hair, however mine is thick and really long so curls dont stay in my hair...I think curls look elegant and classy...Love the pic of you and your lil one!

I tried curls once and got a flat out, "Your hair looks weird" from hubby. They really don't get it. I think your hair looks cute!

What a cute picture, I love the curls. I wish my hair would take some curls, may just has a dumb wave that is very unmanageable!

I love the curls and think they look great as does many of your female followers/

Its a guy thing...as they noticed any change in your style is a huge compliment (even if it was peels of laughter) or an off-handed compliment. In general, men don't not only notice changes, they actively ignore it, even if for the better.

I used to get my curly hair permed.
Can you believe it? I did :)

I like your hair the way it is.

Merry Christmas!
