Day 5: The countdown is on… bring on the wine

I can’t believe I am 5 days away from my birthday.  This is absolutely insane.

I’m in full blown birthday mode… ready for the next transformation.

Luckily I had a hair appointment lined up for today.  I went in looking for a bit of a change.  Nothing too drastic.

I had been warned by everyone.  The Cheerleader said ‘you don’t want to do something that’s going to make you feel ugly… hold off!’

The Pixie echoed those sentiments, but I had to do something.

I walked into the salon and looked at my hair guy ‘can we do something different with the cut?’

He replied ‘what do you want?’

I said ‘I don’t know… maybe some long layers?”

His answer ‘that’s not going to work.’

Me: ‘um… ok…. is there anything you can do?’

He just looked at me.  I pleaded with him ‘I don’t care if it’s minor, it’s all psychological, just do something to make it different!’

He agreed, and we settled on angling the sides a bit…. although ‘I’ve had it done before’ he said.

I didn’t really care.  I just wanted a different look no matter how minor.

When I left the salon I promptly put the top down on the car and took advantage of our fabulous night.  Savoring the landscape on the drive home.

I have to say I’m in full blown party mode right now.  In 48 hours I’m going to be on an overnight wine tasting trip with some fabulous women and I can’t wait.

It’s the one part of the birthday I’m looking forward to more than anything, which is a bit odd for me.

I’m not exactly the first one to offer up a girls trip, but if there’s wine involved I’m all in.  And I know this group of girls will be drama free and that’s what I’m talking about.

So bring on the birthday…. or at least the parts with wine!
