A Little Advice, Please...

Calling All Friends, Family, and Random Readers Who May Have Happened on This Blog Accidentally...

I need some advice.

Don't freak out , it's silly advice. But I'm seeking opinions none-the-less.

It's haircut time again...and I've had the same one for about 2 years...Feeling like it might be time for a change.

I've had my hair all the way from middle-of-my-back long to a barely-jaw-length bob in high school. I've been really happy with the style, lately. It's pretty easy to maintain...Handles the DC humidity...and I can always fall back on a pony tail or a cap over it on really unruly days.

However, when I saw Taraji Henson at the Oscars this year I totally fell in love with her bob and bangs. The guy who cuts my hair has been wanting to cut it short for a while, but I won't let him.

Summer is coming up and I'm wondering if it's time to take the plunge and change it up.

So...I'm seeking the opinions of YOU! Not hard... see the photos below and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.

The Current State of Affairs...

What I'm Thinking About...

So...What do you think? Can I pull this off without a team of expert stylists and a shut-your-mouth-don't-even-mention-how-much-it-costs antique diamond choker?

THIS is what I need to know!

So please, leave a comment and let me know what you think (yes you may post them I will not be offended, (?) is thicker than that). Appointment is on Wednesday. Time is ticking!

My Blog: FAIL

No, I'm not dead. Just lazy...or busy...or at my wits end. All of the above, perhaps? Who knows. Regardles, this is me apologizing.

Last month I wrote 6 posts. SIX! In February, the shortest month of the year, no less. This month, do you know how many I've written? NONE. Yep. That's right. Not a single one. And this little miniature attempt at redemption is a pretty pathetic excuse for an actual post.

So, since I seem to be no good at keeping up my blog...I will direct you to a much better one. Trust me...if you have time to waste (and even if you don't) this is the place for you. Check it: ps: there is a G-rated version...I recommend that one.

When you get done failblogging, should you care to know, here is a mini update on the things coming up in my life...

1.) Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Race...should be an adventure, seeing as how I have done ONE six mile run in the last two weeks...and that's about it. I'll keep you posted. The good news is the blossoms are right on schedule, so at least I'll be surrounded by the beauties of spring while I limp along...if it's not raining that is.

2.) Rehearsing for my upcoming role as "Anna Christensen" a Danish saint who comes to America to join with the church in their exodus to Utah in our Institute choir's upcoming performance of "Witnesses," a musical production relating the tales of the early saints. I not only have to perfect a Danish accent, but also sing a song called "I'll Love Whatever's Left of You" in said accent. I may or may not have to wear a bonnet. More on that later. Embarrassing photos will, no doubt, be provided by Josh D.

3.) Throwing an engagement party for two dear friends who will be getting married in Utah. Beginning to wonder if my calling in life is not in-depth political research and writing, but instead planning and hosting lavish affairs involving tiny food and large floral arrangements.


5.) MUDDY RUN! April 25. So stoked. A 5K race through obstacles including a "river" crossing (we'll see what kind of a river it is...i doubt we'll be fording the Potomac) and two, count them TWO huge mud pits. Ask me how excited I am for this?!? An excuse to get filthy dirty with five of my closest friends, and a bunch of people I don't know! Can't wait (Come on, I grew up on a farm...It's been WAY too long since I got to play in the mud!)

6.) Renting a Winnebago and driving to Kentucky for the Kentucky Derby with some of my best friends. There will also be the purchasing of large, flamboyant hats and coordinating spring attire. Totally worth it for the shopping trip alone!

So, there you have it. That's the short list. And I will leave you with a promise to be a better blogger. Things will slow down here sooner or later...right?

One can only hope.
