Before we jump into our regularly scheduled programming, can I just say you’ll die when you see what I bought on Cyber Monday? I’m so excited! I’ll give you a few hints:
“Don’t go for second best baby, put your love to the test.”
“In the midnight hour, I can feel your power. Just like a prayer, you know I’ll take you there.”
“Papa don’t preach, I’m in trouble deep.”
Get it? Yes? More to come.
School districts. Places of worship. Nearby employers. These are all things a normal person might research when they are looking to relocate, right? Well, when you are a hair wearer, a few other Google searches make the short-list.
“Wig shop” is one.
“Hair loss salon” would be another.
You know, all the things a normal person would never think about at any point in their lives.
Do I have any Dallas-area readers out there? If so, drop me a line and let me know what you think of it. My husband and I decided if all goes according to plan, we’d like to call it home in the near future.
Why Dallas, Texas, you ask?
Lots of reasons that I won’t bore you with here. But, I work in digital marketing (ya know, in my non-blog life) so there’s seemingly a lot of opportunity there, and there’s plenty for my husband, too. Plus, there are similarities between Texas (in general) and where I live now (mild winters, same cost of living, etc.). I’ve visited before, I have friends there, and my gut tells me it’s right.
So, we’ll see what happens. But I’m excited for the possibilities.
We’ve been spending some time researching areas and I constantly find myself figuring out what my hair move is, if we end up moving there. It’s kind of a big deal to me, as there aren’t ANY local wig shops here. It would be so nice to have a great resource locally.
My husband gets annoyed with me, because researching hair is much like playing on YouTube. You start by looking at something specific *just for a second*, and then you click around and…ahem, many, MANY minutes later you realized you’ve spent far too long looking at sneezing baby pandas.
We start by looking at, let’s say, school districts. My meandering mind starts to look into local wig shops, while my husband is click-clacking away at stuff that really matters. If I’m interested in a piece they have featured, of course I have to check out reviews, then look to see if there are videos on it, then look at OTHER pieces in the color I am interested in. Before I know it, I’m looking at something that’s completely NOT the style I would EVER get, nor in the color that works for me, but…I’m having fun.
So, I’m not sure if the hair really is bigger in Texas, but I’m looking forward to finding out (even if it is a cliche).
If it turns out to be true, I’m getting a wig with mega permatease (think: major root lift).
And I’m going to wear that baby with pride.
