Hair

Here's what my hair was like one month ago. I like having it short so much better than long hair just because it's so much easier to fix. Long hair is a pain! I have really thick hair and it takes forever to dry, then style, so I was constantly pulling it back in a ponytail. Then I got it cut off, but later with my long hair in the front, I was always clipping it back or putting it behind my ear. So I did what I have only done a couple times in my life--I got bangs. Here's the before shot. Now see the after pose. I got my hair cut on Wednesday and I think the bangs are a little short, but they're out of my eyes, not having to be clipped, which I actually this is a cute way to wear them, but it's just a change. I get so tired of the same style all the time. It's nice to change it up.
Kelly walked in the door yesterday when he saw me and said, "you got your hair chopped off." He never comments on my hair. I'm not quite sure if that meant he likes it or not. Most guys like long hair. Lindsey said she didn't like it too much, but that it was okay. It was kind of a Randy Jackson type of response. "I don't hate you for it or anything, but it's ah-ight."

I am wearing my new necklace that I just ordered on Monday and it arrived on Friday, from my friend, Summer's new online store, Tres Chic Boutique. It doesn't match what I'm wearing, but I had just opened the mail and put it on. Good luck, Summer!

I love it!! I'm actually chopping my hair off in a week. I finally talked Joe into letting me. But your hair and you look great!

Younger is good--I'm all over that! Thanks, Paige and Sierra!

By the way, Sierra, I'm excited that Joe consented to the short do. I think you'll look beautiful!

I love it! The bangs are so cute and it really matches your personality. Way to go!! Great necklace too. I just checked her site out yesterday. Way cute stuff.

I really like it. That's how I had my bangs a few months ago, but I've since grown them out. I figured it would be easier to deal with longer hair when I'm in the humidity of China... which, as a matter of fact, I might point out that I'll be there in 19 days!

I love your new look. I think that change is important. Besides, it is just hair. It will always grow back if you change your mind later. Hmm... now you got me thinking about getting a change. I usually go back and forth between bangs and no bangs!

Don't you just love the way a new hair cut makes you feel. I do love a change. I think that it looks great, and I love the bangs. Your color is great too.

Kelly, you have such great hair, it looks good no matter what you do with it. Even when you let it dry naturally...it's beautiful!

looking great as usual - change is fun, love your color!

I think the bangs are fab! I think they frame your face perfectly if you want my opinion. I go between short/long bangs. Right now they are WAY too long and all I can do is clip them back. I've always been a fan of shorter hair.

You are very photogenic! Is that the right spelling?? Well, you can sound out my spelling and know what I meant!
Bobbi said…
I love them--very flattering and young looking yet classy!

Virginia Texans said…
LOVE your new hair cut!!! You look fabulous...

I love it sis. It frames your face nicely. I am in kind of the same hair dilemma as you were. You, Tracy and Valerie got the pretty Jackson eyes. I got the Thompson nose. Lucky me!

I'm a big fan of the hair! Can you recommend your stylist? I too live in the land of the perma ponytail and am looking for a change!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
