  1. Adorable, but I thought you were cute before, sugar!!! :-)

  2. OH....*SQUEAL* Yes miss Gina you sure have kept us on pins & needles for sure, but SO worth the wait, you are TOO, TOO CUTE! I love the new hair and the glasses are beautiful, a whole new you for fall:) I love all the sale stuff you got (except the spiders) LOL!!! Can't wait to see it all up for Halloween, it is always such a treat to see what your up to;) Those caramels........OH YUM! Can't wait to get my candle mats and show my new shelf:D

  3. Love you new do...great cut for you. Nice glasses too. Looks like caramel apples may be on the horizon...toss me one if so. :) Enjoy your new do and the new glasses. Hugs

  4. LOVE the new hair.. love the 'stripes" -my hair dresser went out of town for 2 weeks now I'll suffer even more thinking of your new do.. and of course the glasses complete the look!

  5. Love the new Do and glasses!!

    Cant wait to see what you do with all your new Halloween goodies.

    Take Care,

  6. Try getting a body perm, it will
    hold your hair up on the top,
    or use Root Lifter. I like the new
    you! Of course I liked the old you,
    too! Caramel apples sound so good.
    It is 95 degrees, right now! I sure
    wish it would cool off!

  8. First of all love the hair. I have the progressive lenses and I have had them for 10 months and still have not gotten used to them. But these are my first pair of glasses ever, so it's probably just me.

    Looks like you got some good decorations. I was just a JoAnn's today and handed them a Michael's coupon by mistake and they said that they accept Michael's coupons (who knew) PLUS they gave me one of their 50% off coupons to use another day.

  9. Love your new hairdo and glasses. It's amazing how a new hairdo can make you feel so much better. I'm enjoing my new hairdo. Caramel apples sound so good!

  10. Your hair is adorable! I think the new glasses add color to your face. Very flattering!
    Happy Fall!
