The OFFICIAL remodel begins!!!

So... we are OFFICIALLY re-decorating our bedroom! Michael ripped out the carpet about two months ago and underneath....BEAUTIFUL WOOD FLOORING! it is gorgeous!
So today after work I went to the Home Depot (which is NOT a man's store but a BOTH store because wow...I love it. Endless ideas. oh. yes)
I picked out about 1000 paint swatches and tried to find which one suited our room the best.
I wanted something light and happy and sunshiney so I opted for blue and yellow and white. But non of the yellows seem to..speak to me, so I chose a white/very very very light blue called "OPAL" by Martha stewart for the door, window frames, and ceiling
(shown below)

the other color is a light blue called "love in a mist" by Martha stewart. It will be the WALL color. The main attraction, if you will :P
(shown below)

So since we are re-decorating our little "mini apartment" in michaels parents house we are going to go all out. Michael bought new bedding that will match perfectly with the colors and I have been going to to find perfect little
retro accessories to go with it! I LOVE that place.
anyways, I will try to post before and after pictures. This time for real...

So the time has come again! Every 6 mnths or so I get this strange feeling. It's a feeling that just wont go away! what is it?? I want to chop off my hair! yes. chop it all off. Okay, maybe that's a bit dramatic but sometimes my hair gets so...dead feeling and I want something new, bouncy, and voluminous. Above is a picture of my hair now.....dreadful. sorry for the weird "I'm staring into your soul" feeling. Not really sure why i was looking like that. Anyways, I spend agonizing housrs (actually probably minutes but hours sound more dramatic) on the computer studying the latest hair trends and what celebrities are doing with their hair and just what I think is cute and get..well...nowhere actually. SO...should I get my hair cut?? that is the big question. I've narrowed it down...sort of....
This picture is just for fun. i found it randomly searching and it actually is pretty hilarious to me. anyway...

So I really like the pixie cut. I have always liked it because it is so forward yet elegant at the same time! But sadly I feel that once I get it I would regret it! but it is SO CUTE!! but do you have to be a movie star to pull this off? would a lowly person like me even have a chance? what do you think???

Then on the totally opposite end of the spectrum there is the long and flowy haircut. It is elegant and so bouncy and classic. I love it but I think maybe I like more the IDEA of it then the actual cut....but it's pretty, no??
