Five on Friday: Short Hair Don't Care

Happy Friday friends!  And even better...hello long weekend!


I haven't had my hair cut or colored since April which for me is a long time...especially when you are plucking the grays!  On a whim, I decided to go shorter and lighter.  I didn't even tell Jason - or anyone - what I was doing.  My inspiration was Ali Fedotowsky (yes, the former Bachelorette turned E! News Corespondent).  Straight it looks very "poshy" but when I curl it I should be able to recreate this look:

Another inspiration pic of the straight version...

I have lots of similar images pinned on my Hair Loves pinboard if you are looking for a similar cut.  Am I weird that I always grow my hair in the summer and cut it for the fall/winter.  No more ponytails for me!


I'm excited for fall TV to get started (although I'm not hating what is currently on - Hello Below Deck and Jersey Belle).  The show I am most excited for is The Voice with my girl Gwen Stefani!!!  To say I was obsessed with Gwen and No Doubt during my junior high and probably high school years would be an understatement.  I was equally as obsessed with her now husband Gavin Rossdale.  My room was covered in No Doubt and Bush posters, I even named my car Gavin.  OBSESSED.  I rocked the bare midriff a la Gwen and learned to play Glycerine on my guitar.  You get the point. 

Rumor has it that Gavin will be Gwen's partner during the season so needless to saw I will be glued to the TV two nights a week this fall!

What fall shows are you most excited about?


My first Stitch Fix box was delivered this week.  It was so fun to try on everything I received.  I only ended up keeping 1 of the 5 items.  I'm watching my spending so I was being super picky.  Everything but one item fit me great and I loved all 5 items.  My only complaint is that the items were all a little summery and I'm trying to transition into fall pieces.  Even though it will remain hot in Houston for awhile, I still like to dress like it's a different season.  Full review post coming next week!


 If you haven't read this article yet about being grateful for what you have, please do!


I love this idea of putting your favorite Football team's schedule on a chalkboard in your home.  I don't even like football, but I like the excitement of cheering on your team and all the social aspects of football season.  Plus Jason gets super excited about it so I can get on board with that! On Sundays we all wear our Texans gear (even Tucker) and make yummy "football food."

That's it for me.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!  Any special plans?  Not for us so I will just have to live through you!




  1. Your hair looks super cute!! I'm definitely going to check out StitchFix after Stella is born, and after I lose some weight! I've seen so many cute clothing options, and it's such a neat concept! I'm pretty sure our TV is going to be stuck on SEC Network for the next couple of months!

  2. Love the hair and I can totally relate to plucking the gray hair. Mine is horrible. I'm in major need of color. I had mine colored back in May so it's been a while. Love me some Jersey Belle. It's actually my favorite show at this time.

  3. Hi, I'm popping over from the link-up! I too love watching Jersey Belle even though I originally thought I wouldn't. And I am about to 'autumn' my hair up too! Hair is definitely a seasonal accessory!

    There's a giveaway hosted by KIND of my blog today and I would love to have you join!

  4. Love your hair! And I'm with you on Gwen - I was a big No Doubter...but an even bigger fan of Gavin & Bush, especially after the movie Fear. I've seen Bush perform a couple times now and even got to meet Gavin - total starstruck moment, I could barely speak - so I may have to check out the Voice! Football - I agree with you, I don't LOVE it, but I also don't hate it, but it's a staple around our house - love the schedule idea!
