Conversation #149b: A haircut

I wanted to separate this post out from the one that just posted because they are just on completely different spectrums.  So I haven't had my haircut in 8 months.  I don't normally go that long unless I am really trying to grow my hair out (which I did only once).  I got it cut back in August and meant to again before the holidays, but then it got busy.  Then I was pretty much sick the entire month of January.  Then I started studying for the PE exam.  Then it is today.

As you might imagine, my hair is out of control!  I don't blow dry it much so it doesn't take a huge beating most days and stays relatively healthy.  However, the humidity has been pretty crazy here and my curly out of control mane has looked awful down and curly.  I either put it up everyday or straighten because I feel like too much of a mess to go to work otherwise.

Therefore, I am getting my haircut tomorrow morning!!!

Here is what I am thinking (same cut, I think, but different views):

Here is a sort of current picture of my hair:

(I didn't feel awesome this day and went home sick, so I look a little messy)
Outfit breakdown (my attempt at pattern mixing):
Dress, Lands End Canvas, $35
Red Striped Blouse, Lands End Canvas, $12
Belt, Coldwater Creek, $10
Navy suede ballet flats, Lands End Canvas, $15


Not the best picture of my hair, and my hair is longer and even more out of control than that.  It just looks messy and I'm ready for a change.  THOUGHTS?!!

I LOVE that haircut. I say go for it since you have that type of hair. It will look great!

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

Conversation #204: My Jesus...

Oh Facebook and social media of all kinds...we have a love hate/relationship.  Lately, these days, I feel it is more hate only because I allow myself to be depressed by things I see.  I recently told someone the other day that I had lost faith in humanity, and then it hit me, that is exactly where I should be.  We are a fallen people in a fallen world, and I should have NO faith in humanity.  Why did that take me 30 years to figure out?

So there has been a lot of political/social stuff swirling around, and division among Christians, and I hate it.  Like I said, I have no faith in humanity and realizing that was a good reminder it should ALL be in the Lord.  Even though there are definitely things going on in this world that reject the truth of the Gospel, Jesus, the thing that scares me the most these days is the phrase I alluded to in the title: "my Jesus wouldn't believe this" or "I can't follow a God that would say that" or "I just don't believe…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
