If you are expecting a post about food or running, this isn’t it. This post is about two exciting things that happened to me today that are both wedding related – and since I am less than 5 months out, pretty much everything is wedding related these days!
Tonight the exciting thing that I did was that I met my wedding hairdresser for the first time. Carrie is a friend of Meredith’s (who will be doing my wedding make-up) and tonight I met with her to get my color touched up and a little trim.
Here is what my hair looks like now:
Have I told you lately how hard it is to take a picture of yourself in the bathroom mirror? It’s even harder when the mirror is a little dusty!
I am very happy with the result. I wanted a touch of color because I wanted my hair to all be one color, instead of the orange and yellow and dark brown and light brown mess that it had become from the summer sun.
It is a lot darker now than it was before. I like to think of it as a darker chocolate brown.
Do you see the difference in color in this picture from our cruise? It was light brown on top and then it went to all sorts of colors on the bottom. Definitely not wedding day appropriate. I had to step it up a notch!
Before it even had a reddish hue, which I do not like at all. I think a touch of red looks nice on others, its just not how I roll.
I am excited that I have hair all one color and one length. Now I have to start thinking about how I want to style my hair for the big day!
Up or down? Decisions, decisions!
In other wedding news, I got an exciting package today.
Oh no she didn’t!
Oh yes she did!
I have been dreaming about these shoes for a while now and I figure if your wedding isn’t an excuse to splurge, then I don’t know what is! I have been saving my pennies for these bad boys and I am excited to announce that they are all mine! But no peaking until May 21, 2011! 🙂
