Yesterday was an event. I decided to have my hair cut and colored by someone who was twice the distance but half the cost. She was highly recommended by a good friend. I was not disappointed. It’s a cute cut and I got 3 colors in my hair! The top was dyed back to my regular brown color (after I had put in sun-in in it this summer). The bottom half is 3 shades of brown darker. Then I have a one inch stripe of honey blonde about an inch back from my face. Yes, people, there are strands of blonde in my hair. I really like it. And my mom, sister and husband all like it and they usually are pretty upfront about reviews on my hair.
Here’s the bad part. The blonde came out too bright and the darker brown not dark enough. So she had to do it twice. And Scott told me while I was getting it done that he was supposed to be in Charlotte for a very important meeting in about an hour from then. So he had my sister come over to my house to watch the kids until I got there. Well, I took our Jeep to the salon and when I came out of the salon, it would not start. And Scott was already on the way to Charlotte. So Heather had to get Lexi up from her nap and bring Emma and my niece with her on the 35 minute drive to get me. So I ended up going to a little restaurant across the street (which was on Main Street in a small town) and had a salad and piece of pie. So from my end it was a nice afternoon but poor Heather had to scramble. The good news is Emma and my niece fell asleep on the way and I did get her out of about 2 hours of work.
