New Cut, New Cap

About a month or ago, I decided to cut my hair (see default, black and white blog picture). It was one of the most impulsive decisions I've ever made, and I don't regret it in the least. 

I literally took a pair of household scissors and cut off the processed portion of my hair, so all that was left was a few inches of new growth. Needless to say, I avoided my stylist (aka, the person who had given me my curly perm 10 or so years prior) and only spoke to her on the matter when she called and asked me where the hell I'd been. She wasn't too thrilled, but when you get to the point where you want to do the big chop, YOU JUST KNOW. Obviously, I was so over it that I didn't even consult a professional, but thank God for twist-outs because I have no idea what I would be doing with my teeny fro! I'm sure it isn't all the same length but this style does a good job of hiding it, lol.

Today I was out with the boo, and we stopped by H&M. I was telling him he should look for a new jacket when I peeped the Spring hats. Granted, they're mens hats, but who cares? I tried a pale grey one on, I liked it, he liked it, I purchased it, and we rolled. First hat purchase since cutting my hair, woohoo!

Wedding Bells

I've been away a while.

Honestly, things have kinda been a whirlwind since I got engaged last August. My Mom is very hands-on, so she's been my unofficial wedding planner, pretty much. Lol! A couple weeks after Steven and I got engaged, we were at a wedding expo. A week or 2 after that, I went dress shopping, and it's been full throttle ever since!

We only have about 5 months until the big day, and some days that seems like a lot of time, and other days it seems like we're hurtling forward at a rate that's too intense to comprehend. Wedding planning seems so fun in the movies, but there's a lot of stress and minutia that can compound into a giant, tangled knot (no pun intended). Even so, it's all coming together and it's going to be an amazing, beautiful, fun day, and we're so blessed that friends and family will be there to share our joy.

Here's to getting hitched!
