Three Things Thursday - With Pictures

1. Here are the before and after pics from my recent hair cut and color... it was needed bad. Did I mention that I could barely get and keep my swim cap on? And it's a headache to have in a ponytail when it gets too long. The color is hard to tell, but there's more blonde...just in time for summah!
Before...

After...


2. Here's some lovely photos of my parents neighborhood in Bismarck, ND. These were taken on my way home Friday morning (before Easter) after a 8 inch snow storm/showers that included snow, sleet, rain, snow thunder (yes, that's for real), ice, etc. This storm killed our power at home for the afternoon, but left some homes and nearby towns without power for a few days.


3. I attended two wedding showers this past weekend - one was a cousin, the other was a cousin's fiance. At the second one, we had to work in teams and create a wedding dress. Guess who was volunteered to be the "bride"? Yeah, that was me. Actually our team was pretty creative and competitive.... and I am sure a couple of my teammates are still wondering why we came in second place! It was fun though!

Michelle said...

Love the new hair! Looks great!

Is that a toilet paper dress?

Carly said...

My hair is about as long as yours was before the haircut. I supposed to be growing it out for my wedding because I normally keep it shorter. It is seriously starting to drive me batty. I can't wait to cut it! I love your cut and am now jealous. :-)

Jen said...

Cute... cute hair! Love it. Is it natural curly? I have natural curl but I usually straighten my hair. Growing it out now so I can wear it curly again.

Kelly said...

Haha I did the wedding dress at a bridal shower a few weeks ago, fun times haha.
I love your hair cut, it looks great!

You have great hair! I agree it is tough with a swim cap...I say I am going to cut my hair at least once a week but I can never bring myself to do it. It comes down to about my bra strap and is naturally wavy so I straighten it every day. I love it long, but man is it a pain!!!

IzzyBubbles said...

Cute hair!! Wish I had pretty waves like that. I haven't cut my hair in over a year now - yikes! But I have a cut coming up in a few weeks...hoping to talk myself into doing something dramatically different, thinking I'll probably end up with the same old boring 'do.
