Self Portrait Monday... the new RED me!

Well, this will inevitably look like the most VAIN blog post ever, what with all the photos of myself, but... oh well..
I died my hair RED this weekend, with the help of the ever faithful Jen. She was great and I would have chickened out if not for her! LOL. Now, NOTE: I am a hair stylist, I DO NOT reccommend anyone else try this at home... I knew what colors to mix, how my very blonde highlights would effect the outcome, etc. OK, disclaimer over. :)
So, now that I am liking the red, I tried some self portraits today. (elsie flaningan's blog was a big help, she had a little tutorial.)I have tried some recently and let me tell you, I was NOT HAPPY. I looked at those shots of myself and thought, "Good grief! AM I really that UGLY????" Seriously folks, these were not your garden varitey unattractive photos, they were U-G-L-Y. So, when I actually liked some today, I was very happy. I don't think I'm hideous or anything, but I also know I am no "hottie" so... a few good self protraits rocked on a Monday morning OK? I am a SAHM, I need these little bright spots in a world of sippy cups, dirty diapers, and whining.LOL. So, read, lurk, and feel free to leave a comment...

This one is my favorite... me and my little guy. He was even saying "cheeeeese". LOL.

  4. GREAT pictures! And I LOVE your hair color!!
    I know what you mean about self-portraits. I have a really bad habit of making the goofiest faces in pictures, and then that double-chin that just pops up out of nowhere! UGH!
    I'm inspired to go get something done to my hair now too!

  5. I'm going to try this again. YOU ARE SO GORGEOUS!!! (I guess I think that typing in full caps will make it work this time. lol)
