Time for a Change...

The new year is almost upon us. I'm definitely looking forward to starting fresh next year. The end of this year was pretty much a downer.

I did get some good news today though. My HCG levels have returned to 0! My red blood cell count went up as well but it was still low - 9.2 - so my OB wants me to continue to take the Folgard. Hopefully, in a few weeks my Hgb and iron count will be back to normal.  We will start trying again in March. The plan is to schedule an HSG before we start trying to make sure my left tube is all clear. This should help our chances of conceiving. If we haven't gotten pregnant by May/June then I will see a specialist. Praying that we can avoid this though.

So, on to the fun stuff...

After two months of not being able to go to the salon, I finally have an appointment for tomorrow. I'm super excited!! You wouldn't believe the number of gray hairs that I have growing at my roots. If I let my hair grow out, half of my hair would be completely gray! Boo.

I've decided to make a change and go shorter. Currently my hair looks like this...

It's hard to tell from the pic, but my hair hits mid back (right at the bra line) when it's straight. More often than not it's straight except for special occasions.  

Here are some inspiration pics of what I'm going for:

Love it!! And hair color:

An interesting fact I learned while searching hair color is that you can tell if you have a "warm" or "cool" skin tone based on the color of the veins in your wrist. If the veins in your wrist have a green hue to them, then you have a "warm" skin tone. If the veins are bluish, then you are considered to have a "cool" skin tone. Pretty cool! Although, I still don't know what skin tone I have. My veins look both greenish and bluish. :) 

Oh, and I'm loving this cut. Maybe one day I'll get enough nerve to actually chop all my hair off! :)

If all turns out well, I'll post a pic of the new do. If I don't post a pic, well, then you know what happened. I'll be crying all afternoon. :)

Here's to a new me!!
