It's That Time of Year Again

World Series, you say? Halloween? Fall Cleaning? Saturday's filled with nothing but football?

Yes to all of the above, but not the purpose of this post.

Today is my bi-annual hair-highlighting appointment! If you haven't noticed, I have super-short hair. I have to get it cut every 5-6 weeks or so. That is expensive enough by itself, so imagine adding a foil-highlight job to that price every time! No sir-ee, Bob, we are not that loaded at my house. In fact, Bubba is rather appalled at the price I pay just for the cut-up job (and frankly, all of you who read this would be appalled, too, but that's one of the problems with living in Manhattan and wanting a decent haircut) let alone the highlights he doesn't think I need. So, I compromise and get the foils every 6 months or so, about the time that all of the blond is cut off of my hair. Because there is a small part of me that really misses when I had naturally blond hair, about 10 years ago. Now, it's light-brown.....dishwater blond at best....and I just can't seem to get used to it!

I figure it this way (just like a female to justify useless spending, even if she IS a cheap engineer-type): I don't buy expensive clothes or shoes or purses, I don't go get my nails done every week, I don't have a gambling habit, I don't get a regular massage (although that would be fab, too!) so this is what I treat myself to. An hour in a salon being pampered. I was doing it long before I met Bubba, so he lets it go.

Besides, I've got to have SOMETHING else for people to comment on besides the Big, Bulging Belly.

But the big, bulging belly is so fun!

Don't be surprised if your hair doesn't do the same - if the color doesn't "take" or looks different - pregnancy hormones do strange things to hair..

Well, it turned out great! Just what I wanted! I feel like a new woman!

HOORAY!! Now you are a cute pregnant lady with great hair! Life is good!

I think anything like this that makes you feel good about yourself is totally worth the money. If you spent less, you'd get a highlighting job that isn't quite right.

Bubba's Dad used to highlight my hair - talk about ultimate faith & trust in your spouse!! Now, Mother Nature is highlighting it for me - not with blond, with silver.
