The Darker Side of Me

I am a brunette!!
I (think) I love it!


I would say "tell me what you think," but my ego is still a little fragile from the drastic change.  I don't think this former-blonde could handle brutal honesty YET.  Maybe next week.  After I stop doing double-takes when I walk past my reflection. 

So if you see me AND you love it, THEN tell me what you think!
If you hate it, lie to me.
:)
Is that a normal request?


Brad's mom and "Jay" took Caroline & me to a 3D showing of The Lorax on Tuesday.  Don't you love the glasses? :) They made me laugh.  SEE THE MOVIE! It is precious!

Its SO pretty...and while the color is drastically darker from your blonde days, it isn't a drastic look on you. Its still natural and pretty, like you! That last picture of you and Caroline is hysterical! I love you!

The double takes in the mirror are the best part of a drastic change like that!!! Love that feeling. It honestly looks SO pretty! (P.S. I saw the Lorax too. I felt very "save the planet" after I saw it....and guilty that I waste so much paper from trees at work.)

I think it makes you look very classy. I never think that blondes are classy looking, and I can say that because I am naturally one! Both my sisters are dark and I think they are beautiful. You really do look stunning!

What do your children and husband think?

Thank you!!

My children have no idea that my hair changed. :)

My husband is very diplomatic in these situations. I'm guaranteed to hear that he "likes" EVERYTHING I do to my looks (or cooking) until a safe amount of time has passed when he can tell me what he really thought without it irking me. He's a smart guy, ha!

In three years, I'll let you know what he thought of my current hair. :)

I love it....

Love it! I can tell from these pics that it really is darker! It looks very natural and fitting for you. I think you are just one of the lucky ones that can wear it both ways and look gorgeous. I will get you for that closed mouthed smile though! Haha! Only kidding! ;)

A lifetime of my bad fashion pictures shows I should've taken your advice seriously sooner, Heather. :) maybe I'll (finally) work on showing off my pearlie whites when I smile, ha!

I think you look prettier! And you were already pretty with the blonde hair... but now you're stunning!

Thank you! It is starting to feel more normal on me now that it's been a week.
