Bon Voyage

Well girls - I have had a manicure and a pedicure, I have packed, I have checked out books from the library for my reading pleasure, I have stopped the mail and newspapers, I have people watching our house for us, I have put my work out of office on (HALLELUJAH!), Dawson has reservations at Doggie Day Care.

I am officially ready for our trip!

But just one more thing:

I decided to take your advice - I wanted to go easy and simple.

This is me earlier this afternoon - yes I'm at Sonic - don't judge me!

And this is my new short do! I decided to go a little blonder and chop it off. And I love it. So much easier and I won't have to spend hours blow drying that horrible mop I had before. It's so much healthier and it will be fun!!!! If you hate it - please don't tell me.

I will be blogging from Hawaii. I probably won't have time to make a lot of comments on your blogs but know that I'm thinking of you and I'll catch up when we get home! Have a great 10 days!

Oh, Kelly - I love, love, love it. Yes, you made a good choice. I got mine cut today, too. Not quite as short, but 3 inches feels like so much since it was to the middle of shoulder blades. It felt like a mop!

You look gorgeous! Have lots of fun in Hawaii. I wish I was going, too.

Hillary and Russell Jordan said...

Your hair was cute before so I didn't even realize how much CUTER the new cut and highlights would be. Girl, you look like a million bucks! I can't wait to see that tan you're going to have to go with it. Have yourself a fabulous vacation.

Kelly said...

It looks great! Love it:-)

Enjoy your trip!

Lauren said...

It's precious! I love the shorter length!

I hope that you and your husband have a wonderful time in Hawaii! I am so excited for you!

Meg @ Spicy Magnolia said...

Hi, Kelly! I love that you just went for it and cut your hair! It looks absolutely fabulous, and it's making me want to cut mine (I've had it short like yours for years and now I'm trying to grow it out), so you've got me rethinking!

I hope you have a fabulous time in Hawaii...can't wait to hear all about it!

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

So, so FAB! A perfect cut to kick-off your Hawaiian vacation! Have so much fun!

Ashley said...

I have been reading for a few weeks, but this is my first time to comment.

Your haircut is just too cute! I have an appointment this afternoon to cut mine in almost the same way. I think we may have similar hair issues--it takes me forever to get all of my hair blow-dried and straightened.

Enjoy your new hair and Hawaii!

Stacy said...

You look great! Love the haircut. Have a fabulous time in Hawaii...you deserve it!

Caroline said...

Hey Kelly, Love the new do, the lenght is perfect for you. Looks so sassy. I had to laugh out loud when I saw the picture of your self in the Sonic drive-thru,I too love Sonic drinks. If I ever had a blog which I won't it would take up too much of my time, I would always be thinking I shoud take a picture so I could blog about it, ha!!!!Hope you have a wonderful, relaxeing time on your trip. Look forward to all the photo's. Poor Dawson he has to go to doggie day care, I'm sure they will take good care of him but if his anything like other dogs I know he won't like it, poor fellow. Have a great trip & enjoy all the wonderful, peaceful time there with Scott. K.Barnes

CarolinaGirl said...

SO SASSY and CLASSY!! Have a wonderful trip, and thank you for sharing your poem about Mothers. I have 4 girls, and it really made me look at mothering in a different light! I will try not to take any moments, good or bad, for granted anymore! With 3 under the age of 3 1/2 I get lost in the busy times of the day and I tend to forget what a blessing it truly is to be a Mommy! Thank you for opening my eyes! I will continue to pray for you and your husband!

Jennifer said...

I love the hair! Very stylish and flattering. And what better time to get a new 'do before you go on vacation?
You have probably listed this already somewhere on your blog, but if not, I'm tagging you to list 6 quirky things about yourself (see the rules on my blog).
Have a great time in Hawaii!

Nicole M Wood said...

Oh I love the new do. It looks great. Plus that is our twin dress. You look so much happier in picture 2. Is it because you love the new hair? Or because you know that you are going to the beach?

Soliloquy said...

Can't wait to wear it!

The Browns said...

Wow! You get so many comments on your blog! You are a loved person Kelly :) I love your short hair & you look great!
My hair has gotten crazy long too...I haven't found a new stylists since moving to Vegas, but I made an appointment with "Todd's Chair" on May 19th. I have no clue what to do with this mop. I was also thinking about bangs, but I'm not so sure. I love Khloe Kardashian's bangs on "Keeping up with the Kardashian's". Sometimes she wears them down & sometimes they are pulled back. I'm just not sure my hair will look that good! I need a new style...Maybe I'll post a few ideas on my blog!
Have a blessed day!
Bonnie
