I Feel Like a Woman Again

After all of my extensive research of straightening irons and my desperate search to find something equal to my precious Chi iron, but not quite as expensive.... I came home yesterday to a great surprise.

My sweet husband went to Ulta and purchased a brand spankin' new Chi iron just for me! How precious is that!? Now, he did admit that this had some selfish motives on his part because he was getting a bit tired of me complaining every morning that I had to wear my hair in a bun/pony tail again, but also he wanted to do something sweet for me.

I used it this morning and I feel so much better about myself as a human being! My hair is so presentable. It's been a week since my hair has been straight and I'm pretty sure my co-workers had begun to think I had just let myself go.

Poor Grant must have a bit confused when he went into Ulta, cause he knows that I use a Chi but he also knows that I often announce that "I need to Chi my hair" so he wasn't quite sure if Chi was a noun or a verb. Thankfully a flamboyant man helped him and gave him strict instructions: "Don't slam it!". Well okay!

I am very thankful for my sweet husband who takes such good care of me.

Um, can we have a moment about THE OFFICE?! Can we PLEASE have a moment about GREY'S?!? Grant assured me several times throughout the evening last night that all of these shows are indeed fictional. However, I have invested into these characters weekly for YEARS now (I specifically remember watching the very first episode of Grey's Anatomy EVER in my apartment in Denton with my college roommate before anyone even cared about the show, I have watched since the very beginning) and this is emotional for me!!

It was a big night of television in our home. And also a wonderful morning since my hair is silky, shiny, and not frizzy. Amen and Amen.


  1. Aaaw what a sweet hubby you have!! That's such a sweet thing to do for you- good work grant!

  2. Congrats on the Chi! You can tell Grant that it was a good investment. Mine has lasted four years. :-) I hope you enjoying your straight hair. :-) Have a great week!
