New Do!

I think I was going through a mid-life crisis---which means I might be dying early since I am only 28. But I have had long hair for the entirety of my life. I decided I needed something new. I didn't really know what I wanted. After I left the salon yesterday I may as well have looked like this:

But thankfully I looked like this instead this morning after I showered and actually "did" my hair. I like it now. Yesterday I thought I had made the biggest mistake of my life (not really) in cutting my hair and I hated it. Today I feel revived and fun and in the words of Robin Holland "sassy"...
(yes, these are my new jeans I got for $22 from Banana Republic, and my new shoes I got for $10 to top of my "makeover". I was so proud of myself yesterday)
Now my brother can't say I have the most boring hair in the history of the world...
So yeah for new hair, new me!

YOU LOOK AMAZING!!! I love it! I also got a haircut this last week. My haircut may, however, be a midlife crisis (although I hope to live past 74).

I have a bad habit of going to the salon and saying to the guy or gal: "Do whatever you want, you're the expert." Since I only go to the salon about once every couple of years, I'm up for the risk.

The haircut fits you! I think you should keep it up.

I LOVE it Courtney!!! It looks great on you. I'm also lovin' the bargain you got with the jeans and shoes...they are super cute on you too...you're always super cute! I'm not a very good bargain shopper, maybe you and I should go shopping together sometime...you can teach me a few things. Have a great day!

I saw you at GCC today and thought is that Courtney. You will love how easy it will be with kids. It is a knock-out on you. I love the jeans...I wonder if they would fit a middle age woman?

Thanks. Yesterday I styled it much better than today, but it was still okay. I called my stylist and told her everyone liked it and that I did too (today)...I think it made her day because I am pretty sure I ruined hers yesterday during and after she cut my hair I was so sad about it. Now I like it.

It is pretty easy...not too hard to handle. But my old hair cut was the easiest ever. I did NOTHING literally to it. NOthing. I like that...but this will do, I just have to get used to having to fix it

This is my first chance to see the pic, since we talked over a week ago - it's very cute!!! I need to call you. I was off at a youth conference all week this past week and didn't have time to call.
