Google Dollops of Diane: Smooth and Sleek Saturday

Smooth and Sleek Saturday

On Saturday, my husband took the kids to a birthday party solo since I had a bachelorette party to go to that night. Pretty nice, huh? The kids' party was also two hours away so I found myself with a few hours of alone time before I had to head out myself. I caught up on my DVR'd shows, wrote a blog post, and then wasn't quite sure what to do with my time. Sure there was tons of laundry, dusting, and cleaning to do but this was MY time. I wasn't going to spend it doing something useful. So I decided that I was going to spend the time straightening my hair. I used to straighten it every day in college and for a while after. At this point though I can't even remember the last time I had straightened it. It had definitely been years. So I spent the afternoon leisurely straightening out section by section and the end result was....


I had totally forgotten what it looked like straight and how smooth it felt. It also looks so much longer when it's straight. I already posted this picture on my Facebook page but I'm posting it here as well. I figure it might be five years before I straighten it again so I have to get as much bang for my buck with the picture as possible!

  2. Ok, I always wanted curly hair, but long straight red hair may have just trumped everything. BEAUTIFUL!

  5. Wow your hair looks awesome! My hair is so thin and fine it takes 5 minutes to blow dry it and 5 minutes to straighten it!

  6. I know exactly what you mean....I have to have several hours of alone time to even think about "doing" my hair. You look gorgeous, Diane!
