July 2010: To Chop or Not to Chop, That is the Question

photocard from staceywinters

So I'm guessing it was about 9 months ago at least that Mike suggested I grow my hair out.Normally when he makes a suggestion like that, I just take it at that, a suggestion, but this time I had become bored with my hair and thought I would give it a whirl. Wow, growing out your hair is tedious. Now that its almost past the awkward stage of growing out from a super short cut, I am wavering on whether to chop it or not. What makes the matter pressing is that I have a chance to get my hair styled by my most favorite hair stylist, Janae of Lunatic Fringe in Salt Lake. Yes, I chose the salon by its name: Lunatic Fringe, doesn't that just sound like me:-) and then just lucked out to find Janae. She is AMAZING, a real artist and perfectionist in hair styling. I can just tell her what I want and voile! Love her. And she recently married a Mike Johnson, so there you go.

So here's my dilemna:


*Felicity's new favorite thing is to pull on my hair
*I can look put together with 30 seconds of styling
*It is soooo hot here
*The one time I was asked if I was a model, was when I had short hair:-)
*I love this haircut on Sierra Miller- have wanted to try this


*Long hair is sooo pretty and feminine
*I can put it in a pony tail when I work out
*So many styling options
*I've made it this far with growing it out, why stop now
*I love this look by Jennifer Gardner-don't you just love her-of course my hair can't look like this exactly, but you get the idea


*I don't want to be the lady that always has that same hairdo
*My mom has short hair right now and I'm not so hip on twinsies-sorry mom, you're gorgeous, nothing personal
*Costs a lot to keep up a cut
*I look at those with pretty long hair and am envious


*Felicity's new past-time
*It takes time to do, something I don't have a lot extra of
*My hair texture has changed to be a little more frizzy and not so silky straight as it once was, hence more time to de-frizz and straighten
*I still have to wait quite a while longer for it to be as long as I'd like it

So there you have it, my dilemna: TO CHOP OR NOT TO CHOP
Would love your feedback and please take my little polls

July 2010: In Need of Some Calgon and Some Cleaning Solutions

I'm not sure how old I was when I saw this commercial or maybe the memory of the words, "Calgon, take me away!", came from my mother's lips, understandably so. So funny how the mind works. I found myself thinking these words just the other day, after how many years I'm not sure. You can imagine what my day must have been like to have jogged the memory of this frantic exclamation; I'm sure you know all too well.

I haven't posted in forever but I needed to enlist your help in coming up with a household cleaning routine that will work for me. I would love love love to here how all you super moms out there get it all done. I'm in drowning in a sea of things to do. I know you'll say, but you just had a baby. Yes, this is true. But I'm still going crazy. Well the baby is finally asleep so I must go, but I'm looking forward to your tried and true cleaning solutions!!!
