True to my word, I went and had my hair dyed last week. It was more cherry red, but even with color care shampoo it's faded just a little. But anyway, here I am with the new do:

My kids like it, and I do too. The little neighbor boy, however, was upset when he saw me yesterday. He said, "What did you do to your hair?" "I dyed it red." "Well, Mamy, I don't like it. Put it back to yellow. Put it back!" I said, "Maybe later." I never give absolutes, especially to kids, haha.

Bad news is, red hair apparently makes a person gain five pounds, or maybe that's from the holidays. Groan. I have to get back on track and lose it because that stupid weight always goes right to my stomach and boobs and butt. All of which jiggle when I exercise. I bought two tight sports bras to wrangle things into place, but the lower regions are forced to suck in or flex rigid. Don't talk to me when I'm exercising, I'm too stressed out.

Here's something, I drank two margaritas last night and woke up with a hangover. So--finally--I have--at last--realized that I am a complete and total lightweight who can't eat or drink. Life is over. You all have fun while I look at my red hair and starve. Happy New Year.


  1. No way is life over - Ms Amy you look stunning. I've got a bottle of Ash Blonde sitting in the bathroom cupboard ... one of these days.....

  2. The hair looks fabulous....

  3. Va-va-va-voom. You look stunning! Enjoy the new you! Ignore that little man.

    I never heard about red hair making you gain weight. That will be my excuse from now on. All this time I thought it was M&Ms.

  4. The hair looks great. I'm a natural blonde who has been an artificial redhead for the last 5 or so years. I can honestly tell you enjoy it while it lasts because with every wash it fades so fast.

  5. Fabulous! It really suits you. Give that kid next door a good whipping; he's talking nonsense.

    I'd also like to say how refreshing it is to see someone going FROM blonde to a darker colour. Over in Europe it's 1. Dye hair blonde. 2. Visit cosmetic surgeon (Boobs). 3. Buy clothes from 'Tarts-R-Us'.

  6. When I saw you were hinting at changing your hair color I first thought "oh no, please don't". Now that I see it, I say "oh yes!". One day I will tell you about my historical affinity for redheads.

  7. Beautiful Amy! Stunning! You must have been a red-head as a child it suits you so. And if it has (I'm not convinced) given you 5 lbs, they look very good on you.
    Don't despair...new year, new attitude...go gently with your body and it will respond...most importantly keep the mind positive.

  8. What's the word...

    HOT!! That's it, Hot!

    Better for you anyway, not drinking. ;-)

  9. LOVE! Very beguiling. But then, I have red hair... so I might be a bit biased.

  10. Very sweet comment, everyone! Thank you : ) Cro- I'm laughing at your comment. There's a lot of women over like that over here too.

    Talli- I love your red! You're truly adorable, and wear it well!
