I had an overwhelming response to my hair dilemma the other day, and while I'm still trying to decide what to do, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who voted. First, I didn't know that many of you were reading this, so that's awesome! You're awesome! You're especially awesome for indulging me in my dumb "vote on my hairstyle 'cause I'm indecisive"-ness. And second, you did help make my decision a little bit easier. Believe it or not I've been through this 3 times. Try to grow it out, hate it, cut it off, get bummed out, try to grow it again, hate it, cut it. It's a vicious cycle.
The overwhelming response was that I cut it short. Which, I'm inclined to agree with. Short hair just feels very much like Me. But then I look at pictures of other mamas-to-be on the internet (...Pinterest...) and they have their hair in cute top knots, and pony tails and braids and other fun styles, and I think (in my whiniest voice) "I want to be able to do that, too!"
However, I do know a little bit about myself. Having lived with me for 29 1/2 years I've tried to pay attention. And I'm 99.9% certain that if my hair was long, it would be in a ponytail or a bun. Very rarely would I actually take time to style it. And if I did style it, do you know where it'd be by the end of a long day (or even a few hours into that long day)? It'd be in a ponytail because I hate my hair in my face. It's hot. And curls get itchy on my neck. Also, you know what hairstyles don't look good on me? Ponytails and buns. Because I pull my hair back too tight and it makes me look like a dude. ...OK a really girly dude, but still. Not the best look.
While it sounds like I've made my decision, I'm still feeling very indecisive. Let's blame it on the hormones. (Everything's a much more emotional decision with hormones, don't you know.) Though, I did tell Brad - who is on a business trip from today through Thursday - not to be surprised if my hair is gone when he gets home.
Soo... bla bla bla, I can't decide. I promise not to talk about it anymore until I decide something. 'Cause hey, how long can you talk about your hair without being boring? Not that long.
In other news... here's what I've been doing lately... in pictures.
1. That first one is another belly shot. For some reason a lot of people were really confused by the pattern. It's a sweater folks, not an anaconda or other diamond patterned snake.
2. Breakfast at a local bakery this weekend.
3. Kitty. She helps me be lazy some weekends.
4. An owl I made. His eyes are crooked.
