My hair and I have always struggled with one another.
Growing up I hated my orange hair.
The names I was called were enough to send a young girl
into the bathroom with a pair of clippers.
I'm sure you can imagine.
My mom wouldn't let me color my hair
so what does any girl do when she moves away to college?
Dyes, dyes, dyes that orange hair every color but orange.
I will admit I went a lil crazy in college with my hair.
Short, long, dark, blonde, you name it.
At one point I even had yarn weaved in it, don't ask me why...LOL

I still have a love hate relationship with my hair.
I was just trying to figure out how many different colors and cuts I have had
just since the girls have been born.
It was pretty insane.
And after all is said and done I am striving to reach
that perfect shade of...

wait for it...

Well copper to be exact.
Follow my journey that leads me back to my roots,
haha roots, get it :)

8 weeks pregnant and by far the most crazy.
Blonde and the darkest brown ever, totally natural :)
Trying to weave back in a more natural color.
That only lasted a few months and we are back to dark.
Then we add in a lil red to the dark brown.
I guess that didn't suit my fancy cuz 2 months later I was this
crazy dark color.
And another 2 months I was heading back towards
a more natural color. poor hair.
Then chop and bleach.
Then it just gets blonder and blonder.
And shorter, it was chopped all up the back.
Horrible picture but bay far my favorite cut and color for a while :)
Ohhh and the red comes back!
Very red!
The first appearance of the orange.
Growing out the bob.
Guess I wasn't happy with the red anymore and
opted back to brown.
And then bangs!
Muted more light strawberry blonde
but the bangs remain...
6 months later and still bangs...
I think we have achieved the exact shade of copper
and I think I will keep the bangs for at least a few more months.

What do you think?
Is this your favorite cut and color?

I am surprised my girls don't have an issue
with who is my mommy, I never looked the same for very long :)

Wordful Wednesday

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday,
only WITH words.
It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter,
but in a good way.

Like Mother like daughters...
These bags are filled with clothes they got for their
birthday and they couldn't be happier.
My girls love new clothes and new shoes.
And ever since they got their 'Hannah Montana'
caboodles they think they might actually be
Hannah Montana.

Head on over to Angie's Circus for more WW.
