Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

'Never judge by appearances. I might be a brunette.'

‘Never judge by appearances. I might be a brunette.’

Bacon is right about one thing. I’ve had pretty much every color hair you can imagine (well, within the realm of “real” hair colors, I haven’t ventured into the pinks, blues, and purples). I’ve had bleach blonde, golden blonde, red, burgundy, brown, black, and streaked hair. So, what the world really wants to know is, do blondes have more fun?

Let’s take a stroll through memory lane of some of the most fun times I’ve had:

Memory #1: Girl’s trip with Bacon 

In April of 2009, Bacon and I took a trip together. It was perhaps one of our most ridiculous set of antics to date and involved lots of shopping, sitting poolside and laughing. So much laughing.

Hair color: Black

Memory #2: My wedding day

Hub and I got married on a perfect August day in the SF Bay Area. Back in the days of Pepsi Jazz (a Diet Pepsi concoction with caramel and other amazing flavors) and $375/month rent. And most importantly – it was such a fun day.


If you’re reading this, Pepsi, we want this back. 

Hair color: Brunette

Memory #3: Disneyland Trip for my 16th Birthday

The BEST birthday gift, ever. My parent’s surprised me with a trip for us and my best friend to Disneyland. It was easily the best, most carefree, fun week. I wish I could do it all over again!

Hair color: Blonde

Memory #4: Bought our first house

Hub and I were practically babies when we bought our house in Fargo. But there was pretty much nothing more fun then getting out keys and opening the door to our OWN place. We had a pizza picnic on the floor with the dogs on move-in day and felt like kings.

Hair color: Red

So, it turns out that no matter what color my hair has been, I’ve managed to have a lot of fun. So, I’ll let Kelly Clarkson say it best:


Bacon: What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
