Friday night fun!
I was SO happy tonight to go and get my hair trimmed! I am growing it out and it is longer than it has been since I was a kid:
long hair and jumping around at Christmas!!
This was my hair on Wednesday night when I was bored and messing around with my camera, can you see the split ends? Don't look TOO close, it was declared a hair emergency:
Tonight when I went to get it cut, I was surprised to hear the woman say she thought I should take 2 inches off!! I knew the ends were scraggly, but TWO INCHES?? I compromised at an inch and a half. It wasn't that bad when she was done. Yes, it is shorter, but it looks better and is healthier too.
I wish I would have done a better job trimming it every 2-3 months like you are supposed to do to assure it's heath. Then I wouldn't feel like an inch and a half was such a drastic change.
Do you ever put off doing what you know you should? Maybe you think you will get ahead or can take a shortcut?
Do you have trouble being patient and waiting for things that you want
and you want RIGHT NOW?
Well, I am off to get mexican food and watch a movie with my friend Jenna (she did my blog logo!! ) Have a happy Friday everyone & a fit weekend!

My co-op membership is one of the most valuable things I have!
