On Sunday, I was telling my mom about their reactions and she brought up an interesting point: they have never seen me this thin. In their entire lives. HOW FREAKIN' SAD IS THAT?!? You know, I could really go down a self-recriminating road thinking about this...but I won't, because what can I do about the past? Absolutely nothing. Well, except learn from it. So I may not have been fit and thin when they were kids, but by god I will look good in their wedding pictures! Not that that's happening any time soon...but better I said that than "in pictures with my grandchildren," right? TOO SOON! (Says the woman who made her own mother a grandmother at the age of 45, hehe!).
The other interesting thing that happened on Thanksgiving is that while I spent the same amount of time on my feet in the kitchen as I have in years past, my feet didn't hurt! I always blamed the sore feet on my tile floor, but I may have to rethink that (and replace the blame) - chalk up another bonus for taking off major poundage!
**********When I posted this cryptic entry, Camevil commented that she had balloons and male strippers on standby, and I called her out on that in this post. Well, color me red-faced, surprised and inordinately pleased when I found THIS on her blog! Thanks, Cam - you are so sweet!
**********If you look on my sidebar, you can see a new award there - the Atta Girl, given to me by Diane! Thank you, Diane - I really appreciate it! Click on the award to see where it all originated.
And now, my hair. I went to my regular gal, Mika, to get my hair cut on Wednesday. I kinda thought she was doing something a little different while she was cutting it, but as I always like what she does, I just waited to see how it would turn out. Well, not only did I love it, but the funny thing is that I had cut a picture out of the newspaper last week of a hairstyle I really liked, but didn't bring it to show Mika - I don't know why, exactly...just thought I wasn't ready for it. So here's the picture that I cut out:While I can't wear bangs like this lady's (too many wayward cowlicks), I loved how the sides flip out!
And this is what I ended up with - again, all without saying anything to my hairdresser!
Please excuse my washed-out look - this is me with no make up. This should serve as a reminder to me to NOT leave the house without putting some make up on!
How funny is that? She said that since my face is so thin (!!!) now, I needed to have the length hit where it wasn't "pulling my face down" - I think it's hilarious that I ended up with the hairstyle I had been secretly considering! She's good, I'm telling ya!
Alright, I think I'm all caught up - hope y'all have a great weekend!
