A New Do and Some New News

I finally bit the bullet a couple days ago and went and got my hair chopped off. I've been wanting to do it for a while now, but Tuesday I was having a bad kid day and Anton was home, so I scheduled a last minute appointment and left. It was really nice to get out of the house for a few hours. I'm really easy going when it comes to my hair. I usually let the stylist have free reign. I cut off about 4 inches? Not sure how many. But on a whim I also dyed it. Auburn. It came out darker than I wanted but I'll get used to it. You ready to see it? There are actually two versions of it. The flipped out:

And the flipped under:

I like it. I wish it had a bit more of an a-line to it rather than being so bobbed, but I'll have her cut it that way next time. Did you know it's really hard to get decent pictures of yourself when you are actually trying? The mirror shots are the hardest. Thank goodness I was able to snag Anton to help.

Anyways, on to the new news. Anton's paperwork is finally on the move again. The commodore finally got off his duff and dusted off Anton's paperwork and signed it. So now we should have orders in 1-2 months. Of course that's what they told us back in August so we'll see. I'm just happy to have missed the Utah winter, since that is where we will probably be moving to. Unless Anton changes his mind again, which he is known to do. Frequently. His newest plan is to get a teaching degree. Not my first choice. I really want us to stay in the military, but he wants to do something that more obviously helps people. We'll see what happens.

So that's what's new with us! Have a good one!

SO CUTE! I'm loving the flipped out version. I can't believe you'll be moving to Utah--no more Christmas beach pictures!

Oh, and I LOVED the "Cool boobies!" story--classic!

Cute haircut. I am currently sporting a slightly longer version of the flipped out style due to one evening of boredom and a large pair of fabric sheers.
