Feel Good Gift to Myself, Number One

My hair appointment for Saturday had to be postponed until today. I was really disappointed at first but I was so glad when I went in today and the place was almost empty. My stylist has a bad habit of keeping you waiting and then really taking her time while doing your hair. Im usually there for about two hours for a simple cut. Today I was in and out in under an hour. So all is good.

This is what it now looks like:

I don't normally tell her what to do with it so it is always a surprise when I put my glasses back on to see what she has done.

The coolest part of all was that because my hair was so long, we cut it off into a ponytail to be donated to the cancer foundation. It will be put with other hair and made into a wig one day. How cool is that? I may end up doing this again, I mean it didn't take any effort from me. All I needed was an extra 6 inches of hair. It actually took a non-effort in that I didn't have to do anything (like getting my hair cut)!
So since this haircut happened late Im not sure If Im going to do something else for this week or just wait until next week. Im taking a cousin out to lunch on Sunday when the kids are with their dad so I should probably leave it until then. Maybe Ill buy those jeans I was talking about. We'll see.
The scale hasn't moved since last week. I cheated part way through the week and took a peek and it was actually down a couple pounds. Now when I checked on the regular day, it was back up. That's what I get for being too obsessive.
Im having trouble coming up with more ways to pamper myself. Im not one to normally do that kind of stuff or think about it too much so Im really at a loss. What do you do? And what would you suggest?

I like that cut, especially after seeing it on the side. Very stylish!

Oooh, a massage! That is the BEST. That should be for a big reward, like if you reach a 20lb goal or some such marker. I think a pedicure would be good for a regular goal. Maybe you could get yourself a subscription to a magazine, like to to B&N or Borders and wander the aisles, pick out something you like, and order it right away, so you have the instant gratification AND the long-term thing. I love looking at all their magazines. Mother Jones is my favorite.

BTW, I graduated with a degree in sociology and a minor in women's studies, too!

Love your new haircut it's super cute on you! Hmmm what more to do to pamper yourself.....mani/pedi's are always nice but I will have to say if you want to just feel all around great get a massage. It is the best feeling in the world.
