i'm ready to rock the bob.

I plopped down in my adorable, sweet, and pregnant new stylist's swivel chair this afternoon and blurted out, "I'm ready to rock the bob." Not sure where that came from, except that I've been totally jonesing for some short hair ever since I saw this. I had absolutely no reservations--I was ready for something cute and fun and new and super cool for summer. When we got to the part where she cut my bangs, she asked if I wanted straight bangs. I replied "sure, since we're already going crazy."

And I love. Looove. It fell a little flat before I could get these pictures, but I think my new hair and I are going to be friends. I haven't tried styling it on my own yet, but that dear stylist assured me it's going to be all wash-and-wear from this day forward and I should style it only if I want to look extra sleek.

I've been super sick all week As in, more-sick-than-I-can-ever-remember. I lost my voice for 3 whole days and did not answer my phone or leave the house, because I was literally mute! Thankfully it was all rain and drear, so I don't think I missed much in the outdoor world. Indoors, Graham had a rave and I sat on the couch, thinking about the 1,000 things I wish I could get done.

So today, it felt amazing to get out of the house. Just being back in civilization has me feeling incredibly better. And a fun new haircut has officially brought me though my summer slump. Yay!

Oh, it's so, so, so, so cute, Jess! You can totally rock the bob, no questions asked. If my hair were less curls and my face less round, I would definitely have been convinced to chop by the end of this post! It so summery and flirty...you do the bob well. :)

Sorry to hear about catching the crud. Here's hoping no one else in your home comes down with it, too!

Aww, super sweet! I love the 'bob'! I did the same 'crazy' thing 2 years ago, after my hubby and I renewed our wedding vows. I wanted long hair for the wedding, but a month later...I got the BOB! lol. I loved it! You look so nice, and chic! ;) Way to go!
