I am so excited that today has finally arrived. Why? Because I'm getting low lights in my hair!!! I have never had my hair high lighted or low lighted, so this is a really big step for me. Mainly I've never done this because I never wanted to keep up with the maintenance. I mean, come on. Roots that are a different color from the rest of ones hair is not the most attractive thing in the world. But lately here I've been so disgusted by my mousy brown hair. Maybe that's because this trailer literally has six mirrors in a space that I'm sure is smaller than 300 square feet. Anyway. When I got my hair trimmed a few weeks ago I asked the stylist about high lights, but told her I wanted to go darker, rather than lighter. She patiently explained to me that what I really wanted then was low lights. She recommended a dark mahogany and a red violet. I told her I didn't want to look punk rock-ish, and she assured me that it's just a subtle red.
I didn't schedule an appointment that day. It was something I definitely wanted to think about. I talked to Greg about it and he said to do whatever I wanted. So I finally gave in, called, and scheduled my appointment. I was still a little hesitant about it, but now that I've waited for two weeks and my appointment is today, I am so super excited! And the bonus is that she is just going to low light the lower portion of my hair so that if I decide I don't like it, the roots won't be that obvious. Yay!! I'm really hoping it turns out good and that I don't regret this! OH! I almost forgot! I never told Greg that I made a decision, so he has no idea that I'm doing this! I'm hoping this will be a good surprise!
And for more good news: one of my favorite stores here is having a HUGE sale today!!!! Chunky jewelry here I come! I can't wait! And then, my nia class is tonight. I don't see how this day can get any better! Oh wait! It kind of does! Because Greg and I have plans for the weekend! We're going to Pueblo tomorrow night (can you say, Red Lobster?) and then on Saturday we're cruisin' on over to Canon City to stay the night with an awesome couple that we met! We're going to be in the mountains, and apparently the asps are changing colors, so it's supposed to be B-U-T-FUL!!! Ciao!!!
