For the first time in my life, I went to get my hair colored in a salon. (Yes, I realize that's odd.) I went with a good friend and we had fun. But we sat in the chair for 3 hours and it was beyond expensive! I was thankful I had a gift card.
That afternoon, I wore my hair down to work, which I never do, and I got a lot of compliments. Really, though, my hair didn't look all that different except a slight tint of red in the brown. The real test was going to be whether my husband noticed when he returned from his business trip.
He got home and the kids all ran to him like a football line intent on tackling him. We formed a giant group hug. We asked him how his trip went and then we all settled back into our normal routines. A few hours passed and the kids headed upstairs to get ready for bed. I couldn't wait any longer, I had to ask. "Did you notice anything?"
He gave me a quizzical look.
