I Feel Like A Girl Again!

Yay for haircuts! Well, despite the fact that I spent too much money on doing my hair and eyebrows, I feel like a girl again! It was so nice yesterday. I haven't had anything done to my hair for over a year if you don't count me doing my own color-from-a-box thing. So I went in, got 4 inches hacked off of my jungle length hair (would have loved to do something drastic with it but then I'd have no hubby to come home to) And then we threw in highlites and shaped my eyebrows finally. There really should be 2, not one from what I understand. Minus sitting under the hairdryer thingy, I had a great time. My favorite part about the whole thing was getting my hair washed. I loooove having someone else wash my hair. It's the fact that I can close my eyes and enjoy the 15 minutes of someone massaging and scratching my scalp. LOVE IT! So now I look like I did back in high school, I have bangs again and I haven't decided if I like them or not. I have maternity photos to be taken tomorrow so I wanted to look new and different.
After the 2 hour hair appointment, I met up with my friend Cassandra and we took off for Minot to go see Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince. I am a fan of Harry's, ha ha. I wouldn't recommend seeing the movie after reading the book because you end up walking out of it disappointed about how much they changed and missed. But it was a good movie if you don't compare it to the book. 2 1/2 hour long movie, could you imagine how long these movies would be if they included everything in the book?!?!? So now I'm excited to see the next two movies (They are splitting the last book into 2 movies) and yet am going to have to calm down for the next two years before it comes out. I hate that....
I am feeling pretty accomplished, I, with the help of dad made that budge I talked about in my last blog? Well payday was two days ago and it feels good to sit down, write out checks and pay bills and then even have a little bit left after all is said and done. It's the first time I've done this and paying all the bills that are needed to be paid and even catching up on some past bills, it feels pretty good. I had to send in mine and Hannah's birth certificates and my marriage license to Abel's insurance company. I sent in a strongly worded letter along with an already self addressed envelope asking them to send all papers back to me. I'm so not going through the crap of getting new ones from Montana. As it is I have to replace my Montana's driver's license so I can get my North Dakota one and I have to replace Hannah's SS card. I get tired of the you need two forms of ID in order to get this paper thing, even though I understand it's for my protection. I'm hoping they are quick on kicking on my insurance. This kid is coming out in 5 weeks and I'm not looking forward to fainting at that bill. I'm STILL paying for Hannah's delivery almost 3 years ago!
So today I'm catching up on every piece of laundry, gunna go run to the grocery store, and get this place picked up so that when Abel gets home at 4 am, it won't make him too cranky, ha ha. I'm including some lovely photos to show you before and after of the new 'do. It isn't anything drastic mind you but it feels like a ton of hair is gone and I'm loving the color whereas before, it was blah brown. I'll take a frontal shot next week when it's time for the bi-monthly belly shoot :)
Hope everyone is having a great week, and have a even better weekend!! More to blog another day!

Holy crap, woman, there is a HUGE difference in your hair! In the first pic, it looked like Mormon hair or something. Now it's all sleek and gorgeous and the color is fab!!!!

Glad to hear you caught up on bills and got to go out with your girlfriend!

Beautiful! I cut eleven inches off my hair before Ella was born. At the time I was happy...now I wish I would have left a little length. Oh well. The good thing about hair is, it grows. Yours is lovely though! The color is great and it looks so healthy and shiny!

Can't wait to see your maternity pictures! I hope you have a great time at the shoot.
