This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

The Color of Frugal

I wanted a change for my hair... it's in a pony tail 99.9% of the time. I know my husband wants me to grow it long so the change had to come through color.
I knew we did not have enough money in our budget to color my hair. (Maybe that's where I should have ended my desire for a change.) I set out to find a great blond color! I have done it before and know my hair takes color well.
My sweet husband was very excited to see my new hair. (He likes me changing it every so often.) I walk out to where he is sitting and I just stand there. The following is a list of comments he has upon seeing my new color:
1. What are going to do to fix it?
2. It's OK it's just hair.
3. Are you going to make an appointment?
4. This didn't take so well huh?
5. " " (yes that says nothing/silence/confusion/"what should I be saying right now?")

I hadn't even asked if he liked it yet!!! My hair turned ORANGE!! Not a pretty orange either. So in lieu of saving a pocketful of money I am now going...with my husband's urgent blessings... to get my hair colored at a salon. Good thing I'm saving money on diapers now huh!!?? And no I will not be posting a before picture!! (I'm not even going to let me sisters see me!!)

Hope you just love the new you when you get it colored!!
