From Blah to OohLala!

I am at the salon explaining to someone that I am trying to grow my hair out.
The hairdresser (aka-spouse) looks at me and asks why.
Well, its simple.   The longer the hair the more wrinkles it covers. 
I figure in a couple more years it will be long enough to wrap around my wrinkly,
 neck and my bangs will cover the forehead and crows feet.  Good plan....right?

Hairdresser looks at me like I have lost my mind.  He and his brother (also a hairdresser) shake their heads and explain that actually my hair was overwhelming my small features and dragging them down.
It was actually aging me!!!!  Yikes!

Do Something!
The big, full thick hair is also slightly aging.

A few moments and one haircut later......

No hiding the crows feet now, but I do feel  spunkier!

I love my new look!!!

This is my FAVORITE dress of all time!
The Red Dress Boutique 
The are located in downtown Athens, GA

My daughter Kaja was with me, and what was SHE doing while I was getting my haircut?
Posing her American Girl Dolls in the reception area and taking pictures!
I love Kaja!!!

Where did I find this most amazing dress?
Right here in Athens, Ga.  But luckily for you they have a website.

  10. Love the details at the bottom of that dress!

  11. Your hairstyle looks awesome. I love long hair, however I think your cut is cool. Your dress is really pretty and your jewerly really accentuates the dress.

  12. Love your new hair. I've always heard that shorter hair makes us look younger.

    My lil daughter just got a cut, but it made her look so grown up. I guess it's the opposite for kids???

    In any case you look FAB! Love the dress and the shoes.

  13. I love the hankerchief hemline on this all white dress. It's so etherial. and the new do' is adorable on you. Ps. What wrinkles? You look fabulous!
