New 'Do, complete with pics

Yes, I am a posting fool today!

I got a wild hair up my big butt to revitalize my blonde and go short(er). Living the posh SAHM life, I am either at the gym or in the pool a large majority of the time, and I am so tired of wearing my hair in this big nasty, wet bun/pony all the time. Seriously, my hair was rarely dry, because it was always up in a pony/knot thing. Kinda gross. The FL heat didn't help the situation either; add a little sweat into the equation, and you've got for real gross.

Now, living the posh SAHM life also means we have very little extra cash, so I decided I could cut and color my own hair. The results?

Damn, I am good! I could be a stylist! In fact, to be honest, I'm happier with my highlights than I've been the past few times I went to the salon. Joey, how's my blonde for ya? :)

I also wanted to mention, several people have commented on how I've gotten blonder as I've lost weight. The truth is, I've always been very blonde. When DH lost his job in August, I decided I could no longer afford highlights, so I colored my hair dark for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. It just so happened to then coincide with my surgery - me having dark hair - and me going blonde again just so happened to coincide with my weight loss. The two really had nothing to do with one another!

Check my new 'do out (and please forgive the lack of makeup):




I gotta toot my own horn for a minute - I think my face is looking FABULOUS! I have a chin. And kinda cheek bones. And my eyes don't disappear when I smile. Holy crap, I don't look like a fatty anymore. For real!

  2. Who is that girl and where did she hide Amy! Nice Do but what the heck is SAHM. I see it posted a lot but am brain dead to figure it out. Leave me a comment so I can be brought into the 21st century.

    BTW, Love the new pics. Can't believe it is the same person when I see your profile pic. I think you need to do some other pictures to show us where you've been, where you are at and where you want to be.

  3. I love you, Gilly. I might have to dump Joey for you. ;)

    Sandy Lee, thanks so much! I will definitely do a post like you suggested. SAHM means stay-at-home-mom. :)

  6. First of all, I was looking at my dashboard like "Who the f is this skinny girl and why is she posting on Amy's blog?!" You don't even look like yourself!!! You need to change your profile picture STAT! SKINNY GIRL!


    Love the hair! You look great, seriously :)

  7. OK, I think I just dumped Gilly for Pie and then for Grace. You guys are making my head swell! :)

    The ironic thing is that when I picked that profile pic, I thought it was one of the best pics of me over the past few years...about 50 lbs from my highest weight. Which means I now weight about 45-50 lbs less than that pic. GO ME!

  11. Seriously - if you try to buy alcohol somewhere they're going to card you and then they'll think you're carrying a fake ID. Jesus....you not only lost nearly 100 pounds but like 30 years off your face. My God - you never cease to amaze me...daily.

  17. I want to be blonde! I did a double take too!
    I had to scroll thru old blog posts to remind myself that this new pic looks nothing like the old ones. The first thing I thought after how gorgeous you look is how much younger you look. Gilly wasn't kidding about you looking 19! Great job!

    Have a great weekend!

  25. You look absolutely gorgeous, no joke!! Your hair is SO cute, I love it!!! And no, you don't look like a fatty at all, you look like a hotty!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Look at how hot you are!!! I agree with everyone else. You look younger and happier and kind of like Britney Spears...and even though she's completely nuts I am a huge fan and I think she's totally beautiful, so please take that as a compliment. ;)

  27. I always wondered how I'd look blonde. If I could do the upkeep myself I'd consider it, but it would cost a fortune to keep my dark roots in check. You look great.

  28. You look absolutely gorgeous! Really motivating for me -- thanks for posting these pics!

    ReplyDelete
  29. How did I miss this post?! How did I then get dumped twice?! WELL, I never!! Don't be glamoured by their smooth talkin'.

    Your blonde looks almost as gorgeous as you do! I wouldn't even recognize you as the same person as a few months ago. You are stunning!

    And don't tell me that you have green eyes. I totally have a thing for green eyes.

  30. WTF?! Seriously, no make up and you look like that?! I hate you. You are freaking gorgeous! Uff da.

    Seriously though, you are looking truly amazing.

  31. I am catching up on my blog reading and I must say you look completely different compared to your old profile pic! I am AMAZED! I mean the old one was pretty but you just don't even look like the same person! You are looking great! I love the hair!
