Disclaimer! - This is a NON-quad, NON-kid related post. Sorry if you were looking/thinking it was an update on Jared and our girls ;)

I know all of you ladies have gone through this..."what to do with my hair for an upcoming event?" Or "man, i need to do something different with my hair!" I guess it's a girl thing (and just imagine what our household will be like with 5! females - ha!) Women and hair...we cut it, color it, thin it, thicken it, volumize it, straighten it, curl it, perm it, highlight it, lowlight it, spray it, gel it, de-frizz it, pomade it, and on and on and on and on. For me, since we are getting our family Christmas pictures taken soon I thought I would start thinking about what to do with my hair for the picture.

First, I got my hair cut. I am really bad at getting my hair cut according to the rule of "every 4 to 6 weeks." I have gone as long as 6 months not getting a hair cut. I know, I'm bad :P Oh well. I decided to go with a blunt cut. No more layers. I think I got tired of them.

Second, I started thinking "what do i want my hair to look like? up? down? curly (i have curly hair by nature)? straight?" Thanks to an Amazon purchase long, long ago (it was a sweetheart of a deal!) I have a T3 Tourmaline wet-or-dry straightener.I've only used it once or twice because it takes me forever to straighten my hair (lots of hair and it's thick). Thinking about our Christmas pictures I thought "hm, what if i straightened my hair?" So...here is how it came out.

Right sideBack
Left side"hm...is this what i really want?"What did Jared and Paul think of my straight 'do? Jared..."no, i don't notice anything different mama." Paul..."you look like a 19 year old (hey, i like that ;) )" Me? I'm not too sure. Those that know me are probably thinking "that's not the Maria I know!", as I usually sport a curly 'do (or am lazy and have it in a pony tail ;) )

Next? Let's see what I can do with my hair curly :)
