Change!

A little bit too much change!
I guess the hairdresser and I had a big misunderstanding!
I wanted it to my shoulders...She must of thought I said ears....

It's just hair right?
Thank God my husband likes me with short hair.

I just want to thank all of you for your sweet comments about our up coming adventure! The emails and offers we have gotten are just amazing! I thank God for "meeting" so many wonderful people on this blog. I think I just about got a tour guide in every state now:) If you get a chance would you be so kind to leave a comment letting me know where you are from and one place your recommend us going in your home state. Please share!
p.s. I sent out all prizes from the giveaways before we moved into our cozy place. Please let me know if you haven't received your items.

Oh, I love it!! I love short hair anyway, but you would look beautiful no matter what your hair looked like:) It will be easy to do on your adventure too!
P.S. Call or e-mail me about your plans...I can't wait to see you guys!

Hey Bridget, I like the hair. It has a cool and trendy look to it. Anyway, I'm headed out of town for a week, but wanted to let you know I passed on a blog award to you. I've really been enjoying your blog!

Lisa said...

I wish my hairdresser made mistakes that look like that. All of my bad haircuts look like I met up with a weed whacker. You are so adorable. Can't wait to see more pictures.

I live in NC. Are you headed all the way to the east coast?

I live in North Carolina. We have just recently taken a couple trips to the North Carolina Mountains. You could spend several days there. We love Boone, it's a great town. You also have Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and Linville Caverns. In Valle Cruse they have a great Mast General store with a candy shop and behind the store is a community park which is GREAT!!! It would def. be worth a stop! We also vacation every summer in Avon, Nc on the outerbanks!!! Hatteras is a very educational place. Great place as well!

Jen said...

Pennsylvania - Lancaster! There is so much to do there. Or Hershey, the sweetest town, it literally smells like chocolate! Have fun!

I like the haircut!

If you are heading to the South/East lemme know! We are ALL about some company!

The Beaver Bunch said...

Although, don't you guys live in Cali? I'm thinking the opposite coast may bee too far?

But hey, if not, we are here!

Jamie said...

I LOVE the haircut!

I live in Huntsville, AL and I think the kids would LOVE the Space and Rocket Center! I actually have several free passes I got from a local coupon book so if you make it this way I would be GLAD to get them to you!

Lauren said...

Love your hair!!

In GA there are about a million cool things to do. You can shoot me an email and let me know what part(s) of the state you think you'll visit and I'll give you the high points for that area! :)

SassyMomma said...

I absolutely LOVE your hair!!!

I live in the very South Eastern part of Virginia. I think the kids would really like Colonial Williamsburg. Here's the link for their site.

This would also be a GREAT school lesson. ;) Plus while you're their you could hit up Busch Gardens,
http://www.buschgardens.com/bg/
and Great Wolf lodge if you wanted. Fun,Fun!
Good luck on your adventure.

Simply Blessed said...

Your hair is SO cute!!!!!!!! And so much more practical for living on the road :) Plus you look gorgeous no matter how your hair is :)

Jessica said...

If you are going to be in the Missouri area, you have to drive through the "ozarks" and stop in Branson!

carlisle clan conversation... said...

LOVE the new haircut!

Texas: San Antonio, definitely the Riverwalk & The Alamo & Ft. Worth Stockyards...of course there are several more gems!

gomillion and one... said...

I love the new DO! Things are changing everywhere you look. :) ♥

JenCoen said...

I was gonna send you an email, but I just wanted to let you know that I think what y'all are doing is absolutely incredible! You always have a place to stay here in AZ. Big hugs to you all sweetie!

EJ & Roo said...

Kate said...

PS - I LOVE LOVE LOVE your hair. Hello cute! :)

CarolinaGirl said...

If you go to South Carolina, you must go to Greenville and see the Falls downtown. They have done amazing things in downtown Greenville, and I am sure you will LOVE it! Have fun, and I LOVE YOUR HAIR.

Ice Queen said...

Your hair is perfect! I'm glad she misunderstood you! Love you!

Kelsey said...

Hi Bridget- I found your blog through Fun in the Sun. Your haircut looks great! I think going to get a haircut is always an unpredictable adventure, having had a few misunderstandings myself. If you are coming through Utah, I recommend Zion's National Park and Snow Canyon State Park in the St. George area!

Happy travels!

janenes said...

Very cute hair!!

I was wondering if you guys have ever visited the Skirball Cultural Center. . .might want to check it out before you leave. We loved the Noah's Ark exhibit--free tickets are available on certain days--just check out their website.

Hollie said...

LOVE it bridget! and if it was a mistake, it's an awesome-lookin' mistake!

Too Many Kids In The Bathtub said...

I LOVE your hair!!! So much to see in Texas...The Alamo, The missions, Seaworld, Fiesta Texas. Notice I convenetly wrote things that were in city...:) Email me if you are coming our way.

Christine said...

Well, it's not actually in my state but right near the border, it's the Creation Museum near Cincinnati. We just went and it is amazing! Such a learning experience. Plus there is so much to do for families in Cincy. I don't comment much but if you need more info just let me know.=)

ktarbell43 said...

I know I live in California, but I have spent a lot of time in Virginia. I know someone already recommended it, but Willamsburg is a must. If you go make sure to get a sandwich at The Cheese Shop.

Kristie said...

I posted stuff about our hometown before, but since my husband is a history teacher and we are big nerds, we like to go on "learning" vacations.

I second Colonial Williamsburg! I went there with my family when I was in 4th grade and then Justin and I moved there for a year and LOVED it.

Also, in Dearborn, MI, there is the Henry Ford museum and Greenfield Village. It is REALLY neat- you could spend a long time thre.

Robin and Stephen said...

Oh I love your hair too! That is a huge difference from shoulders to ears! But it looks great! I can't wait to see your face with it! =) I bet you look amazing! And it looks like it will be super easy to manage!

Sarah said...

You have to come to Idaho. Come visit us! We're in Boise now. The whole state is AMAZINGLY beautiful ... we just spent a few days in north Idaho (wow) ... and it could be educational ... Lewis and Clark forged some of this territory (I think?!) (hee!)

Anyway ... I'm serious - we'd love to see your dear family! Let me know!

This is so fun! ;)

AND - your hair is AMAZING! Super cute!!

Valerie said...

I love the hair. It was my hair style for years, now I have super long hair. Since that picture I am totally contemplating going back. :)
I live in Arkansas, and although I am a native Southern California gal, I have to say, this state is beautiful! I love it here. Northwest Arkansas is beautiful with nice looking town not too unlike southern Cal. I am near fort smith, and the Janet Huckabee Nature center is tons of fun for kids.

Twisted Cinderella said...

I really like that cut!

crazymamaof3 said...

I live in Eastvale.Corona..which I know you have been there done that LOL..but have some suggestions for you.
Tennessee: Leiper Forge which is near Nashville and Franklin. Gorgeous!
Arkansas: The OZARKS!
Washington: The whole state is beautiful but the drive along the Columbia Gorge is to die for..also the Multammoth (Spelling?) Falls are magnificent.
California: yosemite and the whole Monterey area..
Just some ideas..Wish I could do the same with my boys but stinking resposibility always comes around and bites me in the booty!
Love Jennifer

Jenny said...

SOOO CUTE!!! You would look good bald:)))

Hollie said...

you know we're gonna need more pics of the hair right?!!

Anonymous said...

I'm not from Utah but I would highly recommend going to Bryce Canyon and making it so you can drive in from the East to see how beautiful the Dixie National Forest is. Bryce Canyon would be an amazing science learning experience.

Do you think you will make it to CT? Seems like a small state, but we have the two biggest casinos in the country (a night out for you and the hubby, I'll babysit!), the Coast Guard Academy, Yale, LOTS of historical buildings/museums (Mark Twain House, Harriet Beecher Stowe House, Gillette's Castle) and the Wadsworth Atheneum (art museum). There's also Mystic and Mystic Pizza. CT is usually just a pit stop between Boston and New York, but there are hidden places here!

Good luck with everything! Update if you come this way :)

~Jenna's Baggs said...

i'm in agreement with hollie!! need more pics of that cute do!! ;)

boston is the place to be, the beginning of all things american, so many fun things to do and learn around here and with your hslda card the "teachers" get into everything for free!! let me know if you make it this far east and you can pull up a piece of driveway ;)

Kate @ Bliss and That said...

I love, love, love your beautiful mistake!! My hair is growing out from that, but didn't look near as cute! :) You look gorgeous no matter what!

I can't wait to read about your travels!! You are blessed!

I am blessed! said...

Bridget,
We live in the Texas Panhandle right off I-40. We have several ranches around Palo Duro Canyon and would welcome you out to our place for some outdoor fun. The Big Texas steakhouse famous for the chance to win a free 40 oz steak (if eatin in 1 hr) is in our hometown, too. We also have a wonderful museum of the history of the great plains and the quarter horse museum, too. We'd love to have you so if you're coming our way (I-40) let me know.

LilBear said...

Hey there! We're getting ready for the road as well. You contacted me thru FOTR on facebook, but Twitter is actually better for me (there I'm LilbearMe). We're on the road right now going to check out some rv's to see which one to buy. On your travels, be sure to check out VA and West VA. The hills and leaves changing are gorgeous! Anyway, feel free to contact me at Twitter or my email lilbear (at) onceuponamuffin (dot) com. Looking forward to getting to know you!
~Lilbear
P.S. Love your new 'do!

Christin said...

I'm in Virginia, baby! and I agree with a lot of your other comments...come to Virginia!

If you do, feel free to email me. I can give you a better list of what's out there. Especially since you're homeschooling...all kinds of historical/learning opportunities.
