Wordful Wednesday - New Looks, New Boyfriend, and New Computer Station

It's been a whole week of doing things new at my house. From me getting a perm to my husband shaving off his goatee, things have changed a little around here.

I got a perm earlier today at a salon. It's a little tighter than I would've liked but it's definitely better than the flat, lifeless pile I had on my head before. I'll show you what it looks like from front when I get a picture that I like. I took many already but wasn't happy with how any of them turned out. After all, we are our own worst critics. And I was feeling pretty critical of myself.

My oldest daughter got a new look as well. She went to a different salon than I did and got a trim and highlights put in her hair. Dang, I wish I could've looked like her when I was in high school.

Their relationship is a month old but I still consider it new. This is my oldest daughter with her boyfriend. I'm not wanting them to make babies or get married anytime soon, but I really like the kid. He's got his head on his shoulders and is very good to her.

I bought a new computer, computer desk, and printer for our home. My husband who has the patience of a saint and the smarts of a near-genius put it all together for me.

This is our new computer station. The original plan was to move our old computer into the boys' room for the kids use. Then my sanity grabbed hold and I realized it'd just turn into a bunch of squabbling between the kids. There's enough of that already; I don't need to go begging for more. So we now have both computers and the printer centralized in my bedroom.

My husband done lost his mine and shaved off his goatee. After me and Shelby showed him our new looks, he came out of the shower later that night and my jaw about hit the floor. I don't love him any less, but that goatee darn well better grow back quick. He just doesn't look like MY Jason without the facial growth.

Looks like lots of stuff is happening at your place! Your hubby looks very different in those two piccies!! My OH looks so different without his beard that I freak out a bit lol, so he hasn't shaved it off the whole time we've been together (nearly 5 years!) hehehe!

LOL! I feel the same way when my husband shaves. He looks so different. Men have facial hair for a reason :)

You and Shelby look nice. J on the other hand. Oh My!!! Put it back. I guess he didn't learn from Rod's mistake. Rod's is growing back, looking like himself again.
