Hot Mess

I have been thinking a lot about Kiana, one of my favorite little Collegiate students back home...if she could see me right now, she would probably call me a 'hot mess.'  Shoot...she would be right.  Which is precisely why there are no pictures to accompany this post.

For some reason since moving, ok lets be honest...since having Parker, I haven't had a clue what to do with my hair.  I used to get both highlights and lowlights, and was good.  That was before I went a year without dying my hair and my hormones went crazy and lets face it...I got old...and grayer.  Shoot.  Then, my hairstylist told me I didn't come in often enough to do an all over color and highlights so we just did an all-over...dark...too dark...one of those colors that you don't like until 3 to 4 weeks later.

I have paid to have my hair done once since moving here (if you're keeping track, that is once in 8.5 months...seriously).  It was lighter and shorter, but I just didn't know if I really liked it.  Part of me wants to try longer, but then I get to the awkward stage and chop it.  Too many options...bangs, no bangs...layers, no layers...oh geez...I need help.

The hair alone might not be that bad except that I have also recently decided to let my eyebrows fill in a bit (you should be really glad there are no pictures right now).  Have you ever over-plucked and lived to regret it?  Yeah, regretting it right now.  It is not pretty.

Oh, and let us not forget the face...my skin hates England.    I'm pretty sure it wasn't very fond of Wichita for the last 6 months before we moved, but it really hates it here.   My dermatologist told me it might be my birth control...well, lets hope this gets better when I get rid of that in April (yes, I realize this is probably too much information...oh well:).

So I guess what I'm trying to say is...would someone please fly here and help me out?!?  Haha, you have to pay your own way and I can't promise my cooking will be that great, but it will be fun...I swear:).

I don't think I'd be much help... I've had the same hair since the 6th grade, except for like 6 months when I tried bangs. :)

I'm sure you are looking as pretty as ever... you just don't have us around to always remind you. Tell Brady he needs to step it up with the compliments.

OMG. This is totally the sort of thing Rachel and I talk about all the time. I wish I was kidding. I may need to review old blog posts to determine what to tell you. Actually, I know what to tell you. You're super active. Do whatever takes the least time to look cute. Also, I love to say Hot Mess. All.the.time. PHEW this is long!

you are beautiful...hot mess hair {hey, everyone has those moments! and yours totally isn't a "hot mess", but i can totally relate to having a "hot mess day"} and all!

and, oh how i wish we could load our little fam up and fly across the pond to visit y'all. and not because it would be fun to play in your closet {i mean...it would be a little fun. haha} but because we MISS you!

love you, sam!

Kiana will love that you talked about her! And you are far from a hot mess, Sam. You always look so cute and put together to me. :)

Karen said...

Your definition of "hot mess" and Dereck's definition of "hot mess" are two completely different things! I would not categorize you as a hot mess. Perhaps busy mom with more to think about than whether every hair is in place . . . which is a good thing, because it means Parker is getting the very best care!

I've always loved your hair! I think you could do anything and it would look great.

Congrats on deciding to add on to your adorable family. Parker will make the best big brother!!
