Simple Winter Pleasures #22


I've have been feeling the need for a pick me up...in other words...my hair done! lol But I didn't want to fork out the big bucks to get it done. ugh! So, the other day while I was at Walmart (another ugh) I bought a box of hair color and today I took the leap!!




I don't remember the last time I didn't have highlights, heavy blonde highlights, at times so heavy that I was more blonde than brunette. I've had my hair artificially colored for as long as I can remember and I think I even started to think that it was me...but it's not. Now, perhaps these feelings will pass but for now I almost feel free! For the first time in 10+ years, I have dark brown, close to my natural brunette hair! Now I can't wait to see the reaction of my girls and favorite guy! lol I didn't really plan on this today so they didn't know I was going to do it either!




The last time I got my hair done I was high as a kite and felt shiny and new coming home to show off my new do! Until, my very dark headed little girl asked why I made my hair yellow like her sister's and when she could get it done too! How am I supposed to teach my girls to love themselves when I don't feel good in my own hair! (Again, this feeling may fade but for now it all makes sense!)




Today has been a rough one, as said brunette daughter seems to be going thru "something". I can't quite put my finger on what that "something" is but she really seems to be needed some extra TLC from me and I guess I'm just not coming thru for her as much as she needs/wants me to. Maybe it's the upcoming move, or Daddy's busy work schedule these days, maybe it's her very baby acting sister or maybe it's just being five almost six! I feel very helpless with her frustrations and outbursts. I am really hoping that it will make her feel good that now we have the same color hair...perhaps it will magically fill in some need she is lacking? Wish me luck!

Did you family like the hair ?
I have never dyed my hair, but had perms instead They made me feel the same way you feel with the color.
I stopped having perms about 4 years ago and even got a different haircut. Yeah! :0)
When are you moving?Your daughter mood might be part of the moving preparations .With my hubby's job we have moved a bunch of times and our youngest had the most issues with it. The other two where ok.
Every kid takes it a bit different .We always tried to make it fun and special and I'm sure you do the same. :0)
For me it is important that the kids know that home is not where the house stands, but where the family is! :0)

Can't wait to see it! You hadn't told me! And that's the color I've been using lately. LOL (although it *might have had a D after it) For just a shade lighter I used 116A for years though.

They didn't notice until I pointed it out! :P Guess it wasn't as big of a deal as I thought it did! I love the idea of being more natural but the dark just doesn't feel like me...I keep hoping it will grow on me.
