New Do, New Me..

I went to the hairdressers today. Just in time for the races on Saturday. There's something about getting my hair done that I just adore and my husband just doesn't understand. I can't figure out why he can spend hours in Bunnings, or the tool shop or the fishing and shooting shop and he rolls his eyes when I go to the hairdressers or spend hours in the scrapbooking shop. Opposites attract, so they say!

I love being pampered, reading magazines, having a cuppa and a snack, courtesy of my hairdresser (carrot cake today, so yummy) and getting the obligatory head massage (farmerswife drools). Then I walk out with a new "do" and the greys are gone (yes I am here to admit I get grey hairs, I am not ashamed, they started when I had kids, damn them!!).

I had a cut and colour and foils in blonde and red today, so I went out on a limb and experimented. What do you think?

The hubbster calls them my racoon stripes, and I don't tell him how much my hair bill was, I just take off about $40.00. So I am ready for raceday on Saturday, and hope to publish drunken photos shortly after. Stay tuned!

It looks very nice! And so does your new blog design. Love it!

I think our husbands might be related. He completely understands all of the fishing, hunting, shooting, and all of the other stuff that goes along with it....He doesn't quite understand how excited I get when I talk about getting a pedicure done or getting my hair highlighted! When I lose 10% of my weight, I'm getting a pedi, which I so desperately need! I bet he'd act interested if I told him after I lose 10%, I'm going go treat myself to a fun day of clay pigeon shooting!
