The New Hairdo

First of all, I don’t think I ever knew that hairdo was actually a word spelled out just like that. I always thought it was two words, but the dictionary tells me it’s one. Huh, well I learned something today!

I realize it’s Tuesday and a weekend photo recap would have been more appropriate yesterday, but I was really needing to write about running yesterday, and I decided this post could wait. Plus, I wouldn’t have been able to show you my new hairdo yesterday, so it all worked out how it was supposed to.

I actually went out for another run after posting yesterday. It wasn’t as great as my Saturday run, but it still felt good to get out. I definitely notice myself breathing a little heavier than usual, but that will go away shortly.

I’m going to keep it short and sweet for you all today. Here is a recap of my weekend in a nutshell…

Party time on Saturday! I ate way too many treats and my body paid for it the next day.  There was about 5x the amount of food in this photo at the party. Lots of nummies. Such a fun time and the weather held up for a few hours before the clouds opened up into a downpour!

Chilaquile brunch on Sunday at Uptown Cafeteria with Dana, Ted, and Annie. Great food, amazing company.

Monday breakfast: the yogurt bowl is back. Greek yogurt with banana, strawberries, and honey. Simple and delicious.

And the big wow moment from yesterday was chopping off a good five inches of my hair.

I still have bittersweet feelings towards my new do. I wasn’t really planning on cutting that much off, but I did pretty much give the stylist the go-ahead to do it. I am just shocked at how much she actually took off. I haven’t had my hair this short in a few years at least. I know it will be perfect for summer and I just need to get used to it still. It’ll grow on me…haha, no pun intended. It does feel good to have it all cleaned up!

That’s all I have for you all today. I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday. Find something to smile about today.

      It’s been a good 5 years since it’s been this short! You’re right though, in a few days I should be semi-used to it.

  2. I didn’t realize that your hair was SO long before you had your cut! Personally, I love it (and wish my hair would be that long RIGHT NOW 😉 ) Can’t wait to see if in person!

      Thanks! It does feel healthy and all cleaned up!

  3. I love your new do, it looks so good! I have actually wanted to try a “lob” (long bob) for a while but my hair is too thick and my head is too big to pull it off. It looks great on you though, so pretty!

      Thank you, Sarah! Is that what my haircut is called? A long bob/lob? Neat! I have a big head though too! Haha…oh goodness.

    I think your hair looks great!! Whenever I try a new hairstyle or hair color it always takes me a little while to get used to it.
