52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 22

Photobucket

A trip to the hair salon.

I just love stealing a moment to get my haircut.
It's so nice to drop the boys off with my mom

and escape to get a little "me time".

Getting a shampoo is my favorite part.
I get to lean back and let someone else do all the work.

No little people tugging at my dress

or running around being wild.

It's just me and a bowl full of blis
s.

Then, to sit and engage in an uninterrupted
adult conversation is like a huge luxury.

Chris over at The Strand took good care of me

as we chatted the afternoon away.

Back at home
to the mess
,
and the noise
,
and the little people

in need of my services.


The rest of the day
seems a little bit easier

after a trip to the salon.

Going to the salon is hands down my favorite thing to do. I stretched my last trip out 8 weeks and I'm dying to get in there now. love it.

oh lovely - I hate to get my hair cut - seriously! It makes me so mad every time b/c I don't want to cut anything more than like a centimeter - and she always butchers me! The last time she convinced me to chop over 4 inches telling me it would grow back better - guess what - - IT DID NOT!

Love it Leigh- and I completely agree. Having that adult conversation time- uninterrupted & just time for yourself- is so important! It's time for recharging so we can go back to giving all that we do to our families.

Branson said...

Katherine said...

I actually got my hair cut this weekend, too! Although your salon is much cuter than time.

You look marvelous, Leigh!

And, although it's become an increasingly rare occasion for me since O-Man was born, visits to the salon make me happy too!

p.s. VERY cool sign with the scissors! Great shots--all of them!

Sue said...

We all need a little pampering now and then. Especially moms of young children!

Love the new hair it is so cute. I wish I could have hair that did that but alas I was given my fathers thick wavy curly stuff that looks like I have a white girl 'fro if I don't smooth it down or gel it...

That would've been a super swell way to spend part of the day today! Instead I was treated to more gray hair in the mirror than there was yesterday morning...I know it!

Kimberly said...

Oh how I love a trip to the salon. I usually make sure I can leave the kiddos at home so I get some "me" time. I'm in dire need of some "me" salon time though. :)
