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!
