Makeover!



What women does not salivate at this word?  Our church recently announced they were giving away a hair makeover and all you had to do was submit a video or written explanation as to why you should receive the makeover.  I decided to give it a shot NEVER thinking I would win!  So I got an email on Tuesday saying I was the winner and that I would get it done on Thursday and then be announced at our women's event Thursday night.  It was SUCH a fun day.  After 4 colors were put into my hair, it was shaped and styled, I walked out of the salon already feeling 100% better.  I then went to the mall, got my makeup done, bought foundation for the first time and decided it helped my skin a ton!  On Saturday during nap time, I went and got a manicure (just nude color but they look SO much better) and pedicure.  Let me just tell you, I know God says, "charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeing but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."  I also know when we become vain and begin to think our beauty DOES come from outward appearance, we tread on dangerous ground.  But as I put in my submission, after having Abby Kate, staying home full time and a year following 2 miscarriages, I just wasn't feeling too shiny.  I think sometimes we let our feelings reflect in our appearance that being said, I looked and felt tired.  I cannot tell you how much better I feel right now.  Just seeing myself in a new light helps my confidence and perspective soar.  So anyway, here are the before and after pics.  I so wish I could treat you ALL to this kind of weekend.  I will pray God blesses you financially so you could do it just once!  Love you each....
