100 Reasons to ♥ blogging!

1. When you are feeling remorseful about your new hair-do, your blogging peeps will tell you it looks great anyway. (I love my stylist. She expertly achieved exactly what I asked her to do. It's not her, it's me. I do like it. Maybe I wasn't quite ready to change my look.)

Your turn.

  1. 2. You get to learn funny words and catch phrases like. "Apocalypse Peanut Butter" and "Cue the lava".

  2. 3. I get to have daily interactions with many fabulous women so I don't chatter my hubby's ears off every night when he comes home.

  3. Isn't it funny how your hair-do can affect how you feel about everything? I keep thinking about going back to my natural color too, then I change my mind when I remember what color that is. Mine is dull and boring...and as a result it makes me feel dull and boring. You look good...but I think the blonde makes you look sassy, and I like the variety of multi-colored hair. (all personal preferences of course)

  4. 4. It gives a legitimate excuse to ignore housework. (Oh, I'm sorry, I was comforting a fellow blogger who thought she had made a bad decision! Really!)

  7. By the way, I was late on the hair thing, but I think you look lovely. Blonde is fun, but brown is classic too. Either way, you have great hair this girl is very envious of!
