(My wifey did my hair with this cool new “wave” iron, the Goody Heat Wave Creator Styling Iron)
This weekend I had some girlfriends over. Nate went off on a bow fishing trip and left us alone to chat it up all day and night. It’s amazing how women can just sit around and do basically nothing but talk! Men typically get together for an activity, usually something competitive.
Women get together and bounce off ideas, catch each other up on the latest of news, talk about guys and beauty and food and everything in between. It is so rejuvenating. I totally believe in adult sleep overs. Why do we ever stop doing them?
I made grilled sea bass and mango salsa for dinner, we played Bonanza and Mexican Train and stuffed ourselves with cheese balls and red wine in the evening, and in the morning we made dutch babies, checked out pinterest, did each others hair, went out for burgers, then stayed in to watch Young Adult.
One topic that we talked about was hair. I’ve always put more emphasis on making my face look nice when I go out, but one of my friends said something that made me think I should put more focus on my hair. She said,
Whenever you first see someone, the first thing you notice isn’t their face, it’s their hair.
And I thought about it, and it’s true. Probably because there’s more hair to see than face, and because you can see hair from the front, back and sides, whereas you can only see your face from the front and a little from the side.
AND, when guys are checking you out, sometimes it’s hard for them to look at you directly in your eye (nervousness), but you know for sure they are looking at you from behind and from the side, and from both of those views, you can see a lot of hair. So yeah, it just got me thinking how it’s so important for us women to make an effort with our hair! Just a silly little thought for you ladies this Monday morning:)
