Helmets & Hair

Monday night I had the worst haircut ever! I had bought a cheap package at an Aveda salon with a facial, pedicure, haircut, etc. to test their services. I cashed in on the haircut & wish I never did. I now know why the package was such a good price! I think the girl got out of school a couple days ago. I asked for a trim of my long layers and walked out with some sort of chopped bob over a long white-trash mullet. {see photo 1} The picture doesn't do justice to just how awful it was. Jared even noticed! I told him the salon was a little white-trash and he said he could tell by my haircut. Hmmm....
So on Wednesday I had my friend Brooke try to fix it and she did an amazing job. {see photo 2} Unfortunately I had to cut off a ton of hair to get the weird layer blended. Now my hair is really short (well for me)! I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. I'm really sad to part with my long hair. I haven't had really short hair since I was 12, so it makes me feel 12 again. It is better than the mullet though.
On a happier note, we got our motorcycle helmets and Jared's cool goggles. I was a little shocked when I saw the shade of pink when I opened the box. I kind of feel like a big bubblegum bug! So much fun though...
And finally, Greyden got his first tooth in! I'm glad the 4 days of whining and fussing were for a reason and not just his personality. Now I feel bad for not giving him anything for the pain. Oops!

I am so sorry about your hair, that really stinks. But on a brighter note I do love the new short cut. After seeing how cute it is on you I told Chad I wanted to go cut mine, he told me to think about it first!

That is seriously the funniest thing I have ever seen. It is one of those times when someone is telling you a story...and you are thinking to yourself, it couldn't be THAT bad. And then you see the picture - and yep, that is officially a mullet. Dave and I were laughing so hard. Did you just about die when they gave you a mirror and showed you the cut? What did you say? I may have to link my blog to yours b/c that pic is just priceless. On the upside, the new haircut is adorable. (like you could ever look bad.) AND I love your pink helmet!

Jared is so tough. He is going to scare a lot of grandmas and kitty cats.

Yeah the haircut really was awful! I was starting to worry when the girl didn't show me the back of my hair. I didn't realize she was done. She just took the cape off and started cleaning up. Um yeah... BAD! Of course you can link to it. It is a really funny story looking back. I'm a little scarred from it.

hilarious is all i can say! i once had my hair highlighted by a girl with 2 inch fingernails. needless to say, my roots reflected the length of the damn things!! plus she used way too much bleach and my hair came out freaking white.... at least yours didn't involve color! anyway, i love your new short do. i've been debating whether or not to chop all my hair off for the summer... seeing you makes me want to now. and i'm seriously loving the pink helmet! very sassy!!!
