A New Hair Cut and My Anthro-Knock-Off Necklace from Flamingo Toes

*There's still time to enter the $20 Home Depot Gift Card GIVEAWAY. You have until tonight, SATURDAY 11:59pm.

Isn't it amazing how a new haircut can make you feel like that?  I finally got an appointment on Friday and went in.  Justin stayed with Levi and Rian (which made me feel oh so anxious, as it was his first time), while I went to go "pamper" myself by chopping off my long locks.  It was the first time I have gone anywhere by myself (without kids or husband) in 5 months.  And boy did it feel good, and strange all at the same time.  After my haircut I even stopped to look in an antique store for a few minutes, allowing myself to marvel at the prices, and even covet a few pieces.  I came home and Justin said he handled the kids just fine.  Guess I should have had more faith in him, huh?

So here is the BEFORE
And the AFTER


And you see that pretty necklace?? Yeah, I won that from the wonderfully talented Bev over at Flamingo Toes.  She does some A-Mazing Anthropologie knock-off necklaces.  Just like this one.  I am in love Bev, seriously in love.  This necklace makes me feel so cute and trendy.  I don't even want to take it off. 

Bev even has complete tutorials for her necklace knock-offs and so many other awesome things she makes. Go HERE for her tutorial page.  And if you want to make this necklace you can find it HERE.



Thanks again Bev for creating such wonderful pieces.  Oh and I am determined to win me one of the Anthro Limitless Strands Necklaces you make.  ;)
