Channeling Reese Witherspoon! Or at least her hair!




Hubby and I went to the big fancy fundraiser for Landon's preschool. It was a very fun night. I have decided that for big events like this I need to have my hair done. I never used to do this but bestie from High School Nicole is queen of the fabulous "Blow Out". She always looks just great and put together.

Now the day of the fundraiser was gloomy to say the least, I started thinking my blow out might be a waste. I was really wanting some Dallas Cowboy cheerleader hair (DCC hair), and what if it rained and ruined it? Instead I went for a flat iron look. I thought of Reese Witherspoon's walk on the red carpet after she split with Ryan Phillippe. She was in that canary yellow dress with her hair straightened and she had lost a few pounds and looked fabulous.

I didn't want to buy a new dress for the event, I am saving up to buy one for my fortieth! I had thought about a Lilly dress but in the end it was too day timey. Ended up wearing this sassy red dress by Jones New York. Wore my Stuart Weitzman black peep toe heals with jewels on them. All stuff in the closet but with my new flat tummy I felt like a millions dollars. Outfit=$0, Blow out= $45, feeling good with new flat tummy= PRICELESS!!!!
