I wasn't always a frumpy ol' Mom.
I used to have alllll the time in the world to apply eyeliner and lipstick.
Allll the time in the world to back comb and shield my bouffant.
A new tattoo? Sure, I've got the time. I've got the money.
How about a concert? Heck, how about a whole dang tour? Lets go!

And then, came real life.
I'm not going to say that the before was better than the now, because I'd gladly give up all of the backstage passes in the world for my gorgeous children and my rockstar husband, but- sometimes I miss myself.
Whoa, whos that girl?
Oh, yeah, thats the me that I miss.
My hair was midnight and sky high.
My face was thin, and my pout was full.
Its not those specific vanity things that I long for, but more like... the time. The time to have those things.
Recently I've been toying with the idea of cutting my hair shorter. I had always wanted long hair, but once my short style grew out and the long locks grew in- all that was left, was a ponytail full of 3 day old unwashed tangles that had somehow survived buckets of baby puke, 5 miles of pushing a 110 pound double jogger, and at least an hour and a half of yoga.
Oh don't mind me. I'm just having a postpartum identity crisis.
But, while I've got you here-
Does anyone have any suggestions, maybe pictures, of an a-frame-ish style that you think might look good with my current color?

Flashback with us! Go through your polaroids, scrapbooks, old crappy cell phone pictures- whatever you've got. Scan them, upload them, get them onto the computer somehow, and then share them with the world! Or... with us at least. Post them onto your blogs, write a little bit to go with them- tell us your story. When you're all finished, grab one of our buttons from down below (wayyyy down there at the bottom of our page) and put it somewhere inside your post (or link back to us the old fashioned text way). Come back here to this post, and add your link to the photo list below!
And if you've got a minute, maybe go poke around some of the other flashbacks posted, and leave a comment on another blog or two?
