New Glasses, New Hair, Same Old Me



After having five babies in nine years, three of them in under two and a half years, I've noted that my body is less (or should I say significantly more) than what I want it to be. I tried on some pants the other day, and got the snuggy of a lifetime. (For those who don't know me well, I refer to a wedgie as a snuggy.) Seriously, the number of the size on those things was higher than I can count to. Sad. To top it off, I noticed that driving is a bit more difficult than I wanted it to be.

So, I paid a visit to the eye doctor. As you can see from the pictures, the eye doctor said I needed glasses. Actually, his resonse was "I can't believe you're driving. Can you tell me the make and model of your car so I can give you a little more room when I see you coming?". So, yeah. New glasses. I let my friend, Jeanna, choose them. Lucky for me, she's got great taste.

Then there was the issue of my hair. I finally grew it longer than it's ever been in my life. Know what I found out? It was stringy and had split ends and was just generally unhealthy. While I loved being able to put it in a pony tail, I was looking remarkably like a frumpy housewife mother of five who was fat and wore glasses. And had twelve chins. And a more junk in my trunk than the luggage compartment of a 747. Yeah. Not a great image, right?

Anyway, on a whim, I called my hairdresser and hightailed it to her "office". Really, it should be considered more of a science lab. where extreme make-overs happen. She waved her magic wand...er...I mean her flat iron and hair color brush and voila! A whole new look. I don't know how well you can see the red or the length, but it looks SO MUCH better than it did before.

So, I have new glasses and new hair. But I'm still the same old me. And I'm okay with that.

You look amazing. You probably seem so young because you hang out with the young all the time. However, I must say, I've been anxiously awaiting the red and blue highlights for what seems like forever. Did I miss that ro should I just give up?
