Unveiling | Why Girls Are Weird

Friday, April 29, 2011


Okay okay, I get it, you all want to see my haircut!  All this week I've had tweets and emails asking when you'll see my cut.  But FIRST, you all have to take a look at our fireplace mantle!

The family sign was originally black but after many coats of spray paint it stands out more!

I received this canvas from one of my sponsors, Easy Canvas Prints. It a picture of the lift bridge in Duluth, MN, which is one of D's and my favorite places!  Go check out their website, they make it SO easy and they have tons of different options.

I ordered the H monogram from Diana's Etsy shop Livy Love.  It fits in PERFECT!

Of course on my picture taking spree I couldn't help but snap a pic of Monte!  Isn't he cute?

 Okay okay, haircut pics!  Please forgive the bad lighting quality and the Myspace like pics.  I have no idea where our tripod went and Dustin's been out of town so I couldn't get him to help me out!  I'm still kind of playing with it and she went a smidge shorter than I wanted but hey, hair grows so it's all good!  She cut off more than 6 inches and my getting ready time is about cut in half now.  It's amazing!

So be honest... mantle, my hair... MONTE.  What do you think?

P.S. Have you entered the Summer Must Haves Swap yet?  It's not too late!
