Supermen and Tow Heads

The boys were being so cute before they fell asleep tonight, all super-manned out and playing with Chase. I thought these pictures were too cute not to blog about. Don't you love Chase's face in the second picture? I can imagine what he was thinking.



I also thought I'd warn everyone about my new do. I think I'm going through some quarter life crisis right now. The mother of 3 thing is really taking its toll on me and making me feel old. 26 is only 4 years away from 30. And then I might as well be 50. I'm seriously getting wrinkles, my bedtime is 9:30 lately and my wardrobe is beginning to let me down. SO, in order to make sure I'm not aging too fast I decided to change my hair a bit. It is never blonde enough for me. I always wish I would've gone lighter. Well, I finally did it. I'm thinking I shouldn't have as it is, well, basically white. These are the two things I heard before I left the salon: "You look like one of the girls on "Girls Next Door,""(you know, the show about the girls in the Playboy mansion). Hmmm, not really the look I was hoping for, but I guess they are all quite young looking in their own skanky kind of way right? And the second comment: "You look like a Swedish Princess." Yes, I like that one much, much better. If only she knew that for one night Mindy and I were Swedish sisters at some CRAZY Provo party, she would know how much that meant to me. So here it is. I'm contemplating cutting it all off if I don't get used to it soon. Even my boys were making fun of me the other day, which was rather cute to see my 4 and 2 year olds cracking jokes about their crazy Mom's bad hair. Love their honesty.

I'd love to know the order in which you snapped the pictures of Chase and the super heroes...as in when did Chase realize his life was in danger?

And for the new "do"....what exactly does I might as well be 50 mean?

That's funny that this is your new do, because that is exactly what I have been contemplating recently. That exact hair cut, and a super blonde blonde. Basically for the same reason too. I am 26 and wondering why I feel like I look 50 lately too. (No offense Ann!) We are still in our twenties, and therefor should look as sexy as possible! If that means looking like a playboy bunny or a Swedish dream girl, then so be it!

Ash, look how cute you are! I was actually thinking about that same cut but I wimped out and went a little longer. You're too cute.

danne said...

Stop it Ashley, your hairdo looks hot! And I’m not the only one who thinks that. Every time we hang out there’s always some dudes checking you out! Does Todd know about this?

Sam said...

Whoa!

I wish I had the guts to go that blonde. I, too, have thought of doing that recently. The only thing holding me back is the cost of keeping up with the roots. You may have just inspired me though. Watch out Nate!

Nathan said...

I'll just send Ash the bill for all the clip'n'dips Megan will need to keep it up.

Whitney said...

Look at that hair, girl! I've got to see this in person. :)

Your boys are so cute. That first picture is hilarious.

I recently looked up that expression because that's what everyone calls Benson. I know what it means but I always ask people where it comes from and no one knows. So I checked it out... It's German and it is a head of hair resembling tow especially in being flaxen or tousled; also : a person having such a head of hair.

Just a little FYI! We're all smarter now:)

PS You're hair is hot!

Ok Ok Ok I'm going to speak up for all the 30 year olds out there...I felt the same way when I was 25/26 because 30 seems so ominously old...but I am now 30 and my husband still finds me mildly attractive...I only have 3 bags under each eye and random guys only occasionally shriek in horror as I walk by...it's not THAT bad! ;) 30 is HOT don't even sweat it!

I love the shout out to our Swedish Sisters night...good times, good times. And yes, you do look like a Swedish princess. I love it! Now, down to business...are you coming to the beach house in August or what? And if so are you bringing your youngest? I have to bring mine since he's still nursing, but it would be fun if you brought yours too...which by the way he is adorable! Please please please say you're coming!
