I’m Blond Again!

I’ve been wanting to go blond for a while now. Well, maybe about a year. And for some reason, I kept listening to other advice (especially by my husband) not to do it! So I stayed with the brown. I’ve been wanting a change and feeling like I’ve been stuck in a rut for so long! Literally wearing the same three pair of pants (one which is completely unwearable now, the other gaining new and bigger holes by the day).  My one pair of “good” jeans is starting to wear thin on the knee and I know it won’t be much longer till there is a nice little hole there. I have two sweatshirts that I trade off every other day. I tell you this not to feel sorry for me as I probably could go out and buy a couple new things, but I am at a fashion crisis in my life! I don’t know what my style is anymore!!! I used the excuse that I will not go shopping till I lost every last pound of my pregnancy weight, but those last four pounds are holding on tight and not budging, so I may need to just deal with those four pounds and have some sort of shopping spree. But what do I buy!?!? I need a big Urban Outfitters here where all the clothes are a third of the price they are in the store. That would be wonderful!

Anyways, with all that to say, I dyed my hair today! It was my FIRST fantastic hair experience in Europe! Yay! There is hope for us all! I went to Toni & Guy and LOVED both the guy who did the color and the girl who cut it. She even gave me her facebook info! Maybe we’ll hang out!

Here are some pictures! It actually isn’t as blond as I wanted (and looks even darker in the pics) but the color specialist guy said that the next time it will be exactly how I want it! 

We did a little photo shoot of my hair just for you all to see it! And because we are nerds.

    Jen, you look incredible. I agree with everything Amy said. It looks like it has lifted your spirits. Did Maisie do a double take? It is an amazing cut and color and suits you to a tee! Enjoy!

    Love the hair!! Super fun! I’ve been really wanting to go do something fun with my hair and have been thinking of you, wishing you were here to cut it! But now I am inspired to just call up the lady and make an apt! Usually my mom cuts my hair, so I’m a little hesitant, but it just sounds fun!!! How are you? Don’t ask about me:) Fill me in! much love…
