me : Randomocities! { a post full of various un-related things }

Hi y'all! Happy Thursday! I overslept today. By a lot. Which for most people means they are late to work and will be in trouble, but thankfully I work from home. Which means, I'll be working late the next two days to make up for it, but I don't really get in trouble. That's great! But seriously, me and the little guy slept till past 10:30 today. Don't be jealous. ;) Although, you have every right to be. It was fantastic! And very much needed!

Also, I know I've posted this on twitter and facebook, but since some people don't follow me, or use those social media sites, I also wanted to show you here. I got my haircut on Saturday and it was quite the drastic change... I cut 8-10 inches off!! 

My last picture with long hair. It was down passed the middle of my back!!

When I got to the salon and sat in the chair, my stylist asked what I wanted to do. I told her we were chopping it all off and showed her a picture. She was really hesitant at first, but I assured her I'd had my hair that short (and shorter actually) before. That made her feel better about it, but the other people in the salon sure were surprised when she made those first cuts and all that hair fell to the ground. 

And my first picture with short hair! YIKES!

I loved it at first. But then, my bangs started driving me crazy! They were too long and hung directly in my eyes. So annoying! So... Monday night after I got out of the shower I decided to do a little snipping of my own and trimmed about 1/4 to 1/2 inch more off my bangs. 

And voila!

I always feel silly taking pictures of myself. I really need to employ the husband to be my photographer more often. Because me, just standing under some trees in the backyard, taking pictures of myself... it just seems silly. But these are the things I do for you! haha!

So that's the new 'do! I love it right now! I can pull it back into a nub of a pony tail for when I'm running, it takes all of 90 seconds to completely blow dry, it's easy to style, I'm loving it!


Also, you might notice in these pictures that I'm not pasty white anymore. You might think to yourself that I've probably been laying in a tanning bed again. Nope! I've actually gotten two spray tans! No more laying in a bed for this girl! I'm hoping to avoid that from now on and go with a healthier glow of the spray tan variety. It's really easy, looks better than I thought it would, and my non-leathery 50-year old self has already sent her thanks to me from the future. ;) 

If you are like me and like being tan, do yourself a favor and go for the spray. It's so much better for you!


In other news, I've got more clothes than I need/wear/want/should keep. A lot of them have been worn a few times, or even not at all. A lot of them I can't wear anymore because of the weight I've lost. I'm listing them on eBay. I've already sold two camis there, I've got one shirt listed right now and will hopefully have two more shirts listed by the end of the day.
A lot of the stuff I have to list will be plus size clothing. But not all of it. :) 


And now for some bloggy house-keeping:

Do you see those buttons over there to the left? I've got room for more!

Whew! That was a lot of random things! Thanks for reading and no matter where you are, I hope you're having a wonderful day!

    I've been counting down two whole months for my haircut next week. I'm going back home to fl to get it cut lol
    Spray tans are great!! I really need to get back to that. I've been just out in the sun 5 times a week for half hour so no burn but no real tan lol
    I'd love to add you to my blog!

  10. Thanks everyone! I'm glad I went with it and cut it off! And I'm also glad I started spray tanning instead of laying in the beds. It's something I've thought about for a while, and I did some research this winter and I'm really glad I pulled the trigger on that one!
