New Years Resolutions (or) Why InStyle Magazine is the Devil

I have many lofty New Years Resolutions, but there is one I am determined to keep: I hereby resolve to have long hair.

Each year at Christmas, I wish I had long brown hair. For some reason, hats and scarves beg for mysterious brunette locks to peek out from underneath their colorful wool.

And then comes January.

January and the cover issue of InStyle Magazine. And Katie Holmes with her adorable chop.

This happens every year. Katie gets an amazing sexy bob. Katie has brown hair. Katie's name starts with K.

Next thing you know, my hair is 9 inches shorter and I'm looking for Tom Cruise.

What about Natalie (name starts with a 'N') or Britney (name starts with a 'B')? They are cute, and they shaved their heads. Huh, huh?

Nothing like friends to encourage you. ♥

Well you know I'm partial to the long hair, but I too thought the new Katie chop was adorable. For a brief minute, I envied her shorter and cuter hairstyle. Why are we never satisfied with what we have??

Katie Holmes got a haircut?

You obviously haven't been through the checkout lane at your local Publix supermarket lately ;)

No, no I haven’t.

I have a friend who said something that I can identify with... "When times of turmoil come, I either have to cut my hair short or rearrange my furniture" ...maybe InStyle has a recommended new look for your living room? (besides, it is easier to move furniture back than it is to grow hair quickly)

I absolutely like you with shorter hair. It really flatters you, I think.

And forget about Tom, he is too short and too Scientologist for you. Plus, he likes weird kids names (Suri?!).

Cute blog. Keep them coming. The deep, heart stuff, too. Love you!

David has Katie Holmes immunity! He lives in a country with < gasp! > no Publix!

So proud of you, Amber. $16 is impressive.

I crazy miss you A-lo.
