Brunette Bombshell?


So, I went to the dark side--so Darth V. of me, I know. Here's the thing: I have a bald patch in the back of my head due to non-stop bleaching and years of Sun-In streaking. (Did you ever use Sun-In? Did you, huh? That's the WORST lightening product on earth, FYI, and 7th grade in the girls locker room was the last time I sprayed that junk in my hair.) Anyhoo, my hair dresser Kim J. told me that the only way I could get my locks looking like Angelina J's is by using a semi-permanent, non-peroxide hair color, hence, the darker shade of hair.

I like my new dark hair, but one of my homies hates it worse than no Sponge Bob on Sundays. He said, "I don't know you anymore; you're not even my mom." To this I replied, "I'm still your mom, even with this hair." Then he began crying, and I scooped him up and gave him a big smooch on his forehead. And then he said, "Now you're my mom again." Kisses solve everything, don't they?

P.S. Of course I can never have Photo Booth all to myself. As soon as I snapped the above picture, my homies crowded into my photo shoot and hogged all my glory. Payback is the worst.

  1. I'm cracking up because I recently got my haircut and when they kids walked in from school my daughter said "Hi, Hannah Suzuki's mom". Except I have brown hair and yours WAS blond. Now we are for sure twinners! Love it, of course, I look the same.

  3. Love it! I can't wait to see it! I am chuckling at this post because I was just thinking how straw like my hair is now that it is sooo blonde, and how I long for the days of my healthy brunette hair! Hmmm...

  4. Love it!!! You look good as a brunette!

    I once bought a bottle of Sun-In. I think I used it once before Wade stole it and used it himself! I don't think it worked well for either of us....

  5. You look great. I'm glad I found you. My computer was stolen and I've had to reconstitute the blogs I was reading. I remembered "Mi Madre" but only tonight thought of "Words to Mid Madre" Duh.

  7. Your neck is so long. I wish for a neck so sincerely. Sun-in was so crazy! Do they even sell it anymore? I did it and had the most fantastic orange waist length perm afterward. Eight grade. Mi Madre was not happy.

  10. Ok so I popped over here from Shawni's blog and I have been laughing my butt off ever since. My husband keeps looking at me like I am insane as I laugh at the computer screen. I love your sense of humor and I love how you aren't an uptight, trying to put on a perfect show kind of mormon mom. Maybe I need to move to AZ? I don't find many people like you to hang with in UT!!! :)

  12. Oooh, I miss your blonde bombshell, but if going "brown" gives you Angelina hair, then it is totally worth it. Awesome.
