Can't Even B'lieve It!

I was reading the comments to my LAST post about my new hairstyle, and I must say, I cannot believe what I read!  What!?  You all think I'm some kind of MO-RON???  An ID-DEE-UT???  I mean, c'mon!  I thought you all were my FRIENDS!!!

Listen, here is a picture of me....

Now, just picture me with dreadlocks, and a similar poof, except with a layer of fuzzy wire hovering above!

I am NOT going to humiliate myself by showing you a picture of me looking like a total dork!  Like I said, can't even b'lieve it! 

Now I WON'T be too humiliated to show you a picture of Dan looking like a dork!

I can say this because he was TRYING to look like a dork!  I mean REALLY!!!  If my hubby had GREEN chest hair, I certainly wouldn't post it for the world!  THAT would humiliate ME!  And actually, he never wears his shirt unbuttoned like that!  This was for the purpose of impressing all of his preacher friends!  ; P

Do you all like his furry friend?  I actually got one of these for him and Dakota last year, after his back surgery.  We didn't know how long he would be laid up from the surgery, so I thought he might take interested in getting good with a puppet!  And he and Dakota could carry on a four-man conversation!  These furry guys are so cute!  Even the guy with the green fur in his shirt!  : )

My Newest Hairstyle, And Tips For You!

Have you ever wanted to try a new hairstyle, and you have the idea in your mind, and then you try it in your hair?  That is what I did yesterday, and I came away from the mirror with a new hairstyle and a few expert tips for my readers!

I was in a hurry, and decided to take sections of the front of my hair, twist them together until the twist was from top to bottom, and then roll them around a hot stick hair curler.  I pulled the back of my hair in a ponytail, and did the same with divided sections.

I took the hot sticks out after a little while, and, well, let's say the look definately wasn't a pleasant surprise.  Basically, the back of my hair looked like I brushed out some dreadlocks, and after I brushed out the front section and pulled it back, I sprayed it and thought it was good enough.  I had to get going-I had to run into town and pick up Dan.  When I came home and looked in the mirror again, it basically had that "just stuck my finger in a light socket" look, or another way of putting it is, I seemed to be wearing a halo of wirey fuzz above my hair. 

I walked away from this experience, having learned two things that I'd like to share with you:
  1. If you would like to try this twist and roll hairstyle for yourself, DON'T.  Trust me, it's NOT worth it.
  2. Don't try a new hairstyle 10 minutes before you need to leave your house.  Sure, you'll get over the embarrassment of say, having to stop by the bank on the way home(thanks for not mentioning my fuzz halo, Karen!), but it's much better to let everyone think of you as plain Jane, or your normal self, rather than thinking that you've decided to try to be under 40 again, thus trying new, hip-for-a-punk hair styles.  :)
