Yes, its really me!

So I told you I may have some changes coming in the hair department.

Well this was the day.

I took care of the unsettledness in me.

I have been dealing with lots of broken, damaged ends and it was just time to do something completely different.

Last week I was in the check out line... do you remember my luck with lines...Yeah, well, it was one of those times. I switched lines and managed to hang out in the store an extra 15 minutes...So, to kill some time I scanned the magazines and saw this stunning picture of a well known actress(I have since found out) Mariska Hargitay.

I immediately knew what I would do. She convinced me!

I love to switch it up with my hair. You know what I mean? I take the approach that hair and color is a lot like painting a room. I like to switch that up quite frequently as well.

I figure it's not a big deal.

It grows.

Plus that if someone hates my hair one day they just might like it better the next day.

My sister is nothing like me in this area....She thinks I'm nuts.

I am!

I like it!

So here I am this morning....

I'm getting amazing at these self portraits!

And 4 hours later...


There were lots of gasps and "oh my goodness" from my kids when I got home. It's been a LONG time since I've been this color. I think maybe like 7 years!

After the shock and fingerprint i.d.'s I think they do believe it's me!

Whatda ya think???? Should I keep it?

I'm sounding a little insecure!

But really do you think it's hideous?
OK that's all. That's all I got.
