Day 75

Today marked day 75 of my husband's deployment!  Woohoo!  Almost to the 100 day mark!

Several weeks ago, Renee and I were discussing how she does something every 25 days to celebrate and countdown the days during deployment; and I so stole the idea from her.

With today marking 75 days, I decided to have a spa day.  Except it wasn't at a spa.  Another friend of mine works part time in a salon and normally does my hair out of her house.  I normally have boundaries as to what she can and can't do with my hair.  Today I had no such things.

I told her to do whatever she wanted and she gladly excepted the challenge.

Here are some before photos:

(my hair is naturally curly and I hate it)
(although I don't really care for it straight either)

During:
(yes, I know it's quite scary, but I think it's funny)

After:


I absolutely love it!  

My husband originally told me he didn't mind the cut but thought the color was too blond after I sent him these pictures.  Later when we Skyped, he told me it didn't look so blond anymore and it wasn't too bad.

I hope everyone else has their own special ways to mark the days!  What do you do?

I love the hair and I think its a great idea to do something every 25 days, I am almost at day 200 now so I might start this trend!

The cut is aweome! It looks great. I think I might totally steal this idea from you since I am only on day 7! Thanks for the idea!

Amy - I LOVE the hair cut & color!! Congratulations on celebrating day 75 (and yea! for stealing the idea to mark each 25 days!)
Wednesday was my day 75 - I spent it at a wonderfully informative conference. Not necessarily the celebration I wanted, but I did some awesome networking!
Day 100 will be here before we know it! Where are we going/meeting/celebrating?

OBSCENITY ALERT:

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
