Chopped, Chung, Tears, Home Depot


Riddle me this.  Why is it that I thought that when I chopped my hair off on a whim, I felt I would emerge out of the salon looking like Alexa Chung?  I mean I knew I was not going in to have facial reconstruction surgery, shed a few pounds, grow a couple of inches, and become a fashion sensation because my locks were gone.  Since I looked less like Ms. Chung than I had planned, I thought I needed to do a little something to share my new look with you.  So, naturally I wore my favorite sequin dress. 

Well, regardless, here is the new cut.  I am excited and I am not regretting it.  I needed something fresh and new, and my hair was just not healthy.  I also really wanted it to be all one length.  But I would be lying if I told you there were not any tears in Home Depot when we where purchasing a lawn mower this weekend shortly after I left the hair salon.  Changing your hair is a big deal, and yes it grows back, but not over night.  It is funny how attached we get to a certain hairdo, makeup routine, outfit, etc....and feel a little unlike ourselves when we change things up.

On a side night, who cries in Home Depot?  I guess I do.  But come to think of it, this was not the first time.  There was also that time I was losing my mind after several days of painting our dining room.  Cried then too.  Stay tuned for a couple of more looks of the new cut this week, but in the meantime...what do you think??  Happy Monday...J

  2. I love love love the hair! And for what it's worth, I've been known to cry in various home improvement stores over nothing related to the topic at hand. Life happens and sometimes you've just gotta cry in a home improvement store!
