Time for Change

I had a simply fantastic time last night going out with two girl friends from church - we didn't do anything out of the ordinary... but we enjoyed a lovely dinner and some crafting time. We made some incredible cards - that I'll take a picture of tomorrow so that you can see them.

This morning - I set off to the salon to get my curls updated - because my hair was getting a little more straight everyday. While I was there - I got to talking with the lady at the salon about perms and pregnancy... and somehow we got to talking about coloring my hair.

When I met John - I was a redhead.

You probably can't tell it very well from that picture - but it's about the best one I could find on the computer right now to show you how it was back when I first met John. He always loved my hair red... so today - I thought - new plan, new hope... new hair! Why not right? Being a redhead gave me the luck to meet my future husband... maybe it can bring us luck enough to have a baby!

So in my attempt to tell them what color I like for my hair to be - I had them google a picture of Kate Walsh from Private Practice... this is the very picture that they used to figure out the colors to mix for my new "do"...

(If only I had her body to go along with the hair... ugh!) Anyway - here is the results - I'm going to try to get a better picture tomorrow of me in some natural light - so that you can truly see the color, but John absolutely loved it! It doesn't get much better than that... and I really like it too. I feel so much more sassy with my hair fixed up again.

Excuse the lack of makeup - but I'm still battling the exhaustion and stuff... and had just gotten done making dinner for John - recipes and pictures to be put up tomorrow... so I didn't have any makeup on and was a little out of it.

I hope you're having a great weekend... I'm off to warm up some chocolate walnut tarts that I made for dessert.


  1. Looks great! I've been contemplating a change, too. New do! You picked a great color.

  2. Your hair looks awesome and I love the color :)

  3. Love the red hair!!!! I am a little partial to redheads :)

  4. I love the red on you! It looks great even without makeup - which is the real test.

    I have tried red a couple of times and it highlights the possible rosacea so I look like I have a sunburn. I seem to look better as a blond with my coloring.

  5. That color looks totally natural on you! Nice!

  6. I Love the *red hair* on You!!! It looks very Natural too... and in my opinion NOT that many people can dye their hair red.. and it just work for them;)

    So good for you.. a change is really good sometimes... and this one happens to look really good on you:)


  7. Love the red! Naturally, my hair is brown with red tints to it, so I'm always going back and forth between brown and red. After a friend's wedding in August, I think I'm going to make the most of my super-short hair and go REALLY red for a change.
