I have a new profile picture!!!

If you are new to reading my blog, I am not normally this selfish and vain - but it's my birthday, so I am taking a little liberty - please bear with me.

I finally have a new profile picture! It has been over a year since I changed it, so it has been wayyy overdue. I finally got my hair cut this past week (also wayyy overdue) and with John's help, today was the day to get it updated!

Also - my dear hubby and kids bought me a flat iron curling iron (bless his heart, he didn't have a clue what that was when he went in the store - and still ventured to buy one. Now, that's manly!)

They also got me some other wonderful gifts - a storage cube (to get more "space" in the camper), a gift card for new sneakers (yippee!), a new game called Rummikub, a Farside book (already working on the laughing more :), and yet to be tasted - a brownie cheesecake!

Here is the picture that I chose to use - b & w version and color. I decided to go with color.

I also know that hair is not that big of a deal in the big scheme of things, but I have had my share of frustrations with finding a hair dresser here. (hence the reason for diy coloring and for my growing it out). I met a sweet lady at our church who is a hair dresser and decided to give her a try and I will definitely be going again. She was extremely reasonable and my hair feels SO much better. Also, instead of chastising me for coloring my hair at home, she actually gave me tips to help me do it better.

Hope you are having a wonderful day ~ I will back to less selfishness and vanity next time :)
