The Hair Pictures and other stuff!

Friday has arrived finally, and I have to admit that I am very glad.  I have 13.50 hours of over time this week and I am feeling it.  I still have my homework to do....uggggh.  Self inflicted I know, it is I who chose school.  I am looking forward to taking the summer off. 

I told you that I had my hair colored on Wednesday and I did.  After nearly 28 years as a near blond I went back to dark.  It is one level darker than my natural color, although my natural color seems to get darker as I get older.  Not sure what that is all about.  So here are the before and after pictures.

The Before
The After

I actually like myself with both colors, but the dark has really grown on me.  I think it makes my hair look healthier.  So far everyone but my dear husband loves it!  He likes my hair lighter or as he said I love your natural color.  I laughed cause he has not seen it in nearly 25 years and even then it was highlighted.

It is funny how having our hair done makes us feel.  I must tell you that there is nothing better than a grand day at the salon, with pampering, yes LOTS of pampering.  I notice that my "neck waddle is getting worse"  now that the weight is coming back off I have a really bad neck.  So that is something I want fixed when this is all said and done.  I so dislike pictures of myself, I think I look enormous in them.  I am sure that will get better as I continue to lose. ( I can only hope).

I am anxious to get to the gym after work, I missed yesterday because of our snow storm.  It was nasty last night when I left work, not fit for man nor beast out there.

I found this picture of Adam and I just had to share it!

My little snake hunter
I also love this picture of Cole, my little man!

That is an "Autistic" smile
 He never used to smile in pictures!  I love that his face lights up in this one.  He actually wanted his picture taken here. Even though he is autistic, this picture does not reveal it!  He is so very precious to me.

Our "Cool" little DS player
I am ready for the weekend, Adam's 8th birthday is next Friday the 20th and we are having a pool party for him at the Riverplex with 15 of his closest friends.  It should be lots of fun for him.  I cannot believe it will be 8 years since Ifirst laid my eyes on that beautiful little boy.  He forever changed my life. They both have!

I like both looks but the darker looks more natural. My hubby never likes it when I change my hair but then it grows on him and he complains when I change it again. Men!

I think I might agree with the hubby, the blond brings out your eyes more.

BUT I love the dark, too! :)

My natural hair color is brown but I have had it blonde for so long that EVERYONE freaked out when I went back to my natural color. I even had people who had never spoken to me at work stop and ask me if I was gonna go back I did. Yours looks good either way, so just go with whatever makes you feel the best :)
