So, I'm feeling extra lucky today.
Because I need to have headshots made for my book cover, I asked Mom to take me to get my hair done. Getting my hair done in this case, is coloring and cutting. It's over $100, so it's not an expense I can take on casually on a North Carolina schoolteacher's salary. Most of the time, I don't do anything to my hair at all, though I love to have interestingly colored hair. I'm not a talented DIYer when it comes to hair, and hiring professionals is expensive!
While I hope for fame and fortune from the publication of my book, I have neither yet. But I want to feel confident and look good at the writing conference and in those pictures. She agreed. So, now I look amazing. Thanks, Mom!
She didn't stop there, though. She also bought me awesome back to school sneakers. (I always wear Converse. It's sort of my thing).
And she still bought lunch and ice cream.
Yep, I'm spoiled. I'll try not to be a brat though.
