My Hair IS FIXED!

Can I get an HALLELUJAH?!


For those of you who didn't follow my hair trauma in February, you can read about it here. Despite getting that horrendous hair cut fixed, I still wasn't happy with it. I let that unhappiness stew for a couple of months while my hair grew out a little. I pretty much stopped straightening it and wore it up all the time.

Last week, I decided to make an appointment with my friend Shannon's stylist. I had the balls to do it was because Shannon's hair cut is awesome and because I really hated my hair the way it was.

Well, I could have mouth-kissed Kathy at Rebellations in Hoboken because she cut it EXACTLY the way I wanted! She really listened and took her time making sure it looked great. I left the salon feeling like a brand new person... and Kathy got a new client.

It's amazing what liking (or disliking) your hair can do to your mood & self esteem!

Where Have I Been?

Uninspired, tired, & chasing a walking Sebastian.


April: Well, besides for Easter (my kid was not even a little bothered by the creepy bunny)

Serg & I headed to Punta Cana with a group of friends to celebrate a wedding. It was the first time we left Sebastian for an extended period of time and we had a BLAST.

May: We celebrated Mother's Day

Bought Sebastian a bunch of new toys:

Celebrated my friend Marlyn's bachelorette party in Atlantic City:

And took Sebastian to his first baseball game with friends.

June: WORLD CUP MADNESS

Another wedding:

And visiting my sister & Jon as a family to celebrate her graduation.

Bringing us to July... which is sadly half way over and has been filled with beach, pool, & water table days.

I'm going to try to stick around a little while longer...
