Bri's new "do"

Because I only go to a salon to get my hair done once, maybe twice a year (I wish I were kidding), the cut and/or color is usually on the more dramatic side. If I'm going to spend that much money on my hair, I want the whole world to know I got my hair done.

I had it done on a Thursday night after the kids were in bed. So, Friday morning when the boys woke up for school I asked if they noticed anything different about mommy. *They always noticed my haircuts/colorings in the past; I was surprised they didn't say anything right away.

Tucker's response: "You took a shower?"

nice.

Mommy: "Well, yes, I did, but what about my hair?"

Tucker: "You combed it!"

So, I'm thinking either 1.I need to work on my hygeine habits or 2. my boys really are becoming little men. :)

For all my friends and family at a distance, here's a little video of my new "do". It's a video b/c that's the only digital capability we have in our house. Nevermind the concentrated look on my face or the flyaway piece of hair in the back.

I love the color and length. Most of all I love the boys comments...what a hoot.mom

Cracks me up. Yes, I would say the boys are turning into little men. When I outright ask any of my guys if they notice anything different about me, they now know to say, "Um...your hair?" (though their blank looks defy all sincerity). It's one more reason to thank God for girlfriends in our lives.

I like your color. Nice cut also.

Your modeling into the camera gave me chuckle:)

I miss you, Briana! I was laughing just wondering how your were able to stay serious for so long to take the video of your hair. I never could have done that! I like your hair, by the way!
I, too, am one of those once or twice a year hair-cutters, but the difference is that I never do anything different. Not sure what to do with the curl!

I'm glad I made all my viewers laugh. it is a rather ridiculuous video, isn't it? It's too weird to see myself on video like that, but not having a digital camera, video was the best I could do as far as getting a picture online quickly.
I think the reason I was looking so serious was b/c I was concentrating hard on keeping the camera at the right spot so it would tape my face and not some other part of my body. :) I was camera-woman and model!
Maybe that's my hidden talent. :)

I could have written that first paragraph Brianna! Thankfully, I have a hairdresser who comes to our house now and charges us great prices to cut everyone's hair. I need to find someone like that in MD!

Love the seriousness of the video and then the cute little face you make at the end!

Cute do! I decided I wanted a new color also, but since I'm only a once-or-twice a year saloner myself, I decided to take the chicken route and try a color myself first. It washes out in like 6 washes. But I did like it (reddish color) so I may take the plunge soon. It's been about 7 months since my last salon trip, so....
