I was reading another blog the other day and I came across the Dana Beanie. I mean my name is Dana so I automatically love all things named Dana.
And then I saw the original price: $265. Excuse me? It was 50% of during the Barney’s Warehouse Sale but still, $265? And I know people bought it. Clearly I need to start knitting some hats! LOL But I do love to point out knitting prices to non-knitters who ask you to knit them a hat for $20…the yarn probably cost more than $20 if it’s the good stuff. I took my cousin’s sweater to the UPS Store the other day for them to pack and ship it to her and the young man, Carlos, who was helping me couldn’t believe I made it. Then he asked me to make him a sweater. I laughed and said no. And then he asked, what about a hat, $20? $30? Sigh…no, Carolos. And since we’re on the topics of Danas I thought I’d share my new haircut!
I posted this on Instagram but I finally chopped off all of my hair. I’ve had a chemical straightener in my hair since I was three and over the last year or so I’ve felt like I’ve just been fighting with my hair. So I decided to cut it all off and start over from scratch without chemicals. The great thing is that my husband was super supportive and excited to see me cut it and my close girlfriends were super positive and loving. It’s kind of scary cutting off all your hair. It’s a big change. Everyone asks me how I feel and honestly right now I feel exposed because no one is used to seeing me like this so I get a lot of questions and people wanting to check it out. But I’ll get over the extra attention and get used to it (I surprised myself this morning when I looked in the mirror first thing, LOL). But man, it sure didn’t take me long to get ready this morning! It feels kind of free and light. And one last thing to share just for cuteness sake…
Cher and my husband were both downstairs watching basketball and I got in bed and of course Jellybean followed. And normally she curls up on my legs while I read a book but that night she decided my husband’s king sized pillow was the perfect bed for her to wait for them to come join us in bed. Just too cute to not share.
Have a great weekend!
