Although my hubby, who never reads my blog, decided to read it last night and said..."Hair History....you really need to get a job or something."
Well, obviously, the male species does not realize the importance of hair and the fact women like to make fun of other women's past faux pas and make ourselves feel a bit better about our locks.
Clearly, blogging about hair does not indicate some meaningless life that is not worth blogging about- nor does it indicate an unfulfilled life that needs employment. My goodness, my blog is just a culturally enriching experience, with a novel in progress, a Lebanese poet review, American Idol updates and now HAIR!!
Just needed to clear that up for the male readers.
Not a pretty sight. Oh, and the glasses......My oh my. Jess sure was cute
After my recovery, I traveled alot- kept my hair dark and let it grow. I went from reddish brown over bleached blond to jet black. Las Vegas, Cancun beads, Prom and Cancun again. Pre-kids. Travel, sun and fun.
And you can tell I liked that black and white sundress- a purchase I made in Maui. (Not PICTURED... from Maui- 1995.....fattest, worst hair time between grandmother perm pic and up recovery. Although it was a great trip and I bought lots of good things.
Then I was pregnant. Thick wonderful hair....I will skip right to the 9th month.....to speed things along. (May 1999)Too bad thick face and body accompany it. I gained almost 65 pounds.....but had some good hair!!! I even tried to distort the picture to not look as fat, but no luck.
And the Cut,
I stayed BLOND a LONG TIME!!! Aren't you proud of me???
I really just put these up to show some of my favorite people- AND THOSE SUNGLASSES!! I used to love expensive sunglasses, but the time of 2 kids kills that love after then have been lost in the surf, stepped on, legs pulled apart......oh but this is about HAIR.
And I loved that Tommy Hilfiger tie-dyed shirt too!! (Jess, do you still have it?)Until the end of 2002- November. I went back to being a brunette, . Who knows why. This was after a few colors. The first few were reddish over the bleach, of course. I told her to match my roots- talk about contrast. I got the most expensive haircut I had gotten- until that point--on a Princess cruise ship while there was a storm at sea and we could not dock.
Do I just have more pictures than most people or do I have a hair coloring disease???
I think it is just the OCD again- on both accounts- pictures and hair color.
Now we are to 2003- Pregnant again.
Cuts, highlights- good hair days. And into the world of digital photography- thus better photos.
I know, I know- I now have to go to my huge folder with custom CDs made and labeled by sometimes month and a compilation DVD at the end of the year. I am a sick, sick photographer-mommy-librarian. But that doesn't mean I need a job..........
Next up- The days of Baby girl to Present.........
Last expensive sunglasses.
Chicago Zoo- 2004. Took breast-feeding 6 month old baby on plane trip and to Wrigley Field. All the hair color must have given me brain damage.
