Today is a pretty exciting day for two reasons:
Reason #1: I’m getting my hot mess hair cut.
I’ve put it off for far too long and it’s getting pretty sister wife up in here…it’s seriously almost to my butt when it’s wet. Not OK. I’ve had long hair for years and pretty much haven’t changed it since college which was nearly 8 years ago (Oh man I feel old). Anyway, it’s time. But, what kind of a change should I go for?
I’m not big on color because it never really looks that great with my dark hair and olive skin – just harsh. Bangs have usually been my go-to when I’m looking for a change, but after years of trying to make bangs happen, I’ve resolved myself to the simple fact that they just don’t. My hair is curly and I’m far too lazy for that. So basically I’m getting a cut – a pretty substantial one. I’ve pinned a few inspiration photos to my Pinterest hair board this week. I’m not sure I’ll go quite that short though, because I’m kind of a wuss and also because I don’t want to freak Craig out too badly. He loves long hair and is pretty bummed I’m cutting it already, so I may just ease him into it. Even if I only cut it to armpit length though, it would probably be about a foot of length gone. Even just writing that makes me nervous.
I know I’ll be in good hands though. I get my hair cut at Lucas Salon in Portland (they also have a location in Echo Park, CA). I get my hair cut by Taylor and she’s awesome. She’s cut Juliette Lewis and Beck’s hair, so she’s kind of a big deal. I’m sure the other stylists are awesome too, but I love me some Taylor. Anyway, if you’re looking for a great salon in Portland, you totally need to go here. The space itself is rad too. I kind of just want to go live there.
Reason #2: We’re leaving for Disneyland!
For Christmas my parents sprung for a trip to Disneyland and I’m so excited because it’s the first time that Craig will get to go with us (and because we get to stay at the Grand Californian!). Fern has been to Disneyland once at 15 months and Disney World at 17 months, but Craig had started a new job and couldn’t get time off either time. This time he gets to come though and I can’t wait! He’s only been to Disneyland once and it was in junior high, so he doesn’t think it’s all that exciting. I told him that’s because nothing is magical in junior high – you’re too cool for everything at that age, so of course Disneyland would be a let down. I’m looking forward to him experiencing it with Fern though, because Disneyland with a little one is seriously the coolest.
While I’m away, I thought I’d share a few posts I’ve written lately. I’m back writing at Babble Pregnancy (in addition to my other posts) and I forgot how riled up people get about pregnancy and birth. Those are always some fun comments. Anyway, here are some recent blurbs…
Love and vacations,
