Going back in time a few days to share with you the surprise Christmas present my awesome hubby gave me. Â It’s a beautiful and magnificently warm down jacket from Eddie Bauer. Â A few days before Christmas we were at the mall returning the shirts I had got for Brent. Â I gave them to him before Christmas..yes! Â Anyhoo, they were a bit too snug so we took them and exchanged them and he bought 2 other shirts while we were in there (JCPenney).
After that we walked around the mall and I was pointing out things I liked along the way hoping that he would get me something. Â We never really exchange gifts but this year I really wanted to. Â We walked into Eddie Bauer and he pointed out a sweater he liked so I picked it up for him. Â Now I am not usually a big fan of stuff in Eddie Bauer, it’s not my style but I saw this vest that was to die for and right next to it was a jacket just like it that I liked even more. Â So I hinted around and then we left…and he didn’t have a bag in his hand.
I was a little bummed but what can you do right? Â So off to home we went and I was kind of resigned to the fact I was going to pick out my own present like normal. Â We got home and he left to go back to work, he had to go reset his computer to log on from home. Â When he returns I was in the kitchen cooking dinner and he yelled for me “Babe, I need your help with something outside, I’ve got your jacket..come help me“. Â So I go around the corner and IT’S THE JACKET I was drooling over. Â I was in jacket heaven! Â So warm, so soft and it looks super cute on, a key factor I know.
AHHHH next I am sharing with you is the matching vest of the jacket mentioned above. Â I had gotten Christmas money from several people and after it was over I really wanted some Miss Me jeans and the down vest from Eddie Bauer.
These jeans are absolutely fun to look at and fit better than any jeans I have ever had. *Big Thank you To Miss Me for making such a wonderful jean!*
They have lots of different designs but I got a dark denim and the pair in the picture here. Â Both have crosses on the pockets. They are long so I roll them up to wear with regular shoes and they work wonderful with heeled shoes/boots. Aren’t they super cute?? Â I should totally be a jean model for them, they look awesome on my derriÃ¨re. Just Sayin’ Â Speaking of boots let’s move on.
So you like don’t ya?? Â As I was leaving the house today to get my hair done (I sold some of my clothes to a local consignment shop so as a treat to myself I could have a me day). Â Picture of the hair coming…hold your horses! Â Anyways back to the story, as I was leaving in my Miss Me jeans and Eddie Bauer vest I put on some black shoes that I have had for a few years (hubs said they look 90′s). Â What can I say jeans and purses are my forte, not shoes LOL. Â He goes “Those Shoes…I don’t like them” and handed me the money he got from his mom for Christmas “Go buy some of those pointy toed boots, they will look better“.
I was like “AWWW, babe that’s sweet of you, but you don’t have to do that” Â Him “I want to“. Â So I leave excited for my hair and thinking to myself that I am so lucky my husband is so selfless. Â Then as I am driving my day dreaming haults and I realize “He thinks my shoes are ugly” Â Hmm maybe this wasn’t so selfless after all LOL.
Okay it was selfless since it was his money but it cracks me up that for a small moment in time he is essentially ragging on my style. Â Doesn’t he know I am the style queen…well at least where jeans and purses are concerned, guess not so much on the shoes. Â Oh well I ended up getting the above 3 pair for the price of what one would cost normally because Rack Room Shoes as always was having an awesome sale. Â So it’s win win. Â He wins because I won’t be wearing “90′s era shoes” anymore and I win because well I got new boots…need I say more.
Moving on for the moment you all are waiting for, I know I know it’s horrible of me to make you wait but it’s my blog and I can do what I want when I want so there. Â Yes I went to get my hair cut and colored today and I LOVE it. Â No explanation needed. Â My hair was in need of some sweet tender loving. Â It was looking dead and scragly but hair is not on the top of my to do list and I never have time anyways. Â After selling some clothes because I decided I deserved a me something or other I decided it was time to give my hair some undivided attention so I booked an appointment and began looking around for what I wanted.
I wanted to go dark because I hadn’t been dark for so long so in I went and told the stylist what I was looking for and she worked her magic. Â When I say she worked her magic I mean SHE WORKED HER MAGIC. Â Stylist lady rocked it out on my hair. Â Taking about an inch off and doing a dark do, she made my hair feel and look alive again…Mucho points to her!!! Â Now for the hair since I know you are all gripping your seats waiting for the reveal. Â I will have more this coming Wednesday with some family pictures but so you can see now here is a before and after.
Pardon the groodie hair and no makeup but I was not going to get ready just to go get hair dye all over me. Â There you have it, my new look and I LOVE IT!!! Â Yep I sure do. Â Out with the old and in with the New for 2010. Â New look, new attitude..though I will keep the old friends because they are pretty great after all!
