OK, so I know today is Halloween.
I'm fairly certain your feed will be flooded with fun and interesting costumes, recipes, decor, and DIY's - all perfectly fitting the holiday theme.
I would join in, but there's only one problem... I didn't dress up this year. I don't have any cute kids in awww-worthy costumes, I didn't carve pumpkins or decorate, nor did I bake any sweet treats. I didn't even go through the trouble of dressing up my furbabies (even though I was tempted by Target)! I mean really, what kind of blogger am I?
This leaves me with some pretty limited Halloween-themed blog topics...
However, I remembered it's been almost one year since I started growing my hair out... maybe you have noticed? Last Halloween I went as a cat (so original, I know) and I had an A-line cut that had been dyed a brassy brown tone and the back was about a millimeter long...
The problem with an A-line is it's so short in the back that in order to grow it out you have to go through several heart breaking cuts (and an atrocious mullet phase) to keep evening it out, thus making the growing process that much longer and frustrating!
Flash forward to December - February... still not a real significant change.
May - July I remember finally seeing some progress...
August - September I was getting excited because it started resting on my shoulders!
Which brings us to today... probably another 6 inches until it reaches boob level :)
I know it's no where near my goal of Zooey Deschanel's length, but I like to think it's only a few more months way... OK, maybe eight... or seventeen.
I did change a lot of my hair habits over the months, reducing the amount of washes per week down to two, using repairing products since my ends are fried, and lessening the amount of heat I used during styling. I have not, however, done the most recommended task and gotten regular trims. Like, at all, for about six months now... mostly because I'm scared of losing any length at this point! That would scare me more than Paranormal Activity 4... (which was pretty good by the way!).
Have you recently played the growing game?
I'm curious - how long did it take before you could rock the top knot? :)
