Mom Has Lost It… You Think?

18 May

 Mom is well mom – you know mother material.  She *had* blonde hair, wore lipstick and glasses and was one of those moms that had everything together – carpooling, grocery shopping, lists of everything and a firm hand.

But a couple of weeks ago, something happened out of the blue. Mom and dad got up to go get their haircuts and what came home wasn’t mom anymore.  I mean she was mom – still has my mom qualities, still does the carpooling, still does the shopping, etc.  But mom was different.  She told us that she had been a blonde/brown for over 20 years and she was tired of it.  You know this can’t end well, right my friends?

Well my friends, let me introduce you to mom two point hello hubba hubba.  Snorts with piggy laughter.

Gone are the glasses.  Gone is the blonde/brown hair.  Hello contacts and what is that – purple hair?  Some peeps recognize the purple right off while others look at it without light on it and says it’s more auburn.  Me, Houdini, Hemi and Daddy say get back and HELLO MOM.

Maybe she doesn’t look like the ‘typical’ mom anymore but who is to say what the ‘typical’ mom looks like these days?  In this time and day, the June Cleavers and Carol Brady’s of the world is something in the past.

So what do you think my friends?

    I think your Mom is braver and more adventurous than mine, and I think she is beautiful either way. ❤

    Funny how grief makes moms do weird things. Remember when mine was dying half of her hair pink? And then red? I think your Mom looks beautiful ❤

    your mom looks great and purple is anyway the best color. I like the reflections of light in her hair, it looks interesting!!!! How are the contacts, can you put it in&out without problems? I had a bad adventure with contacts once what ended in a super embarrassing disaster and I never tried it again… although I would like it much more than my glasses…

    • Piglove

      05/18/2016 at 1:03 pm

      Snorts! Mom says that is a bad pic showing her purple hair but she is absolutely loving it. And the contacts are awesome – no problems whatsoever. Some days she wears the glasses when she’s feeling lazy and other days it’s the contacts. It’s good to have choices. XOXO – Bacon

    Well! My Mom says being “typical” or “normal” are totally overrated anyway so GO FOR IT is what we say – and your Mom did and now she has purple hair and no glasses! Bravo! My Mom tried contacts years ago and couldn’t stand them so NICE to know your Mom has no problems and a totally new look. Opens up a lot of new possibilities in makeup too (not that I would know – Mom said that!!!!). WOOT! Here comes GLAM-MOM!

    Hugs, Sammy

      aaww thanks cousin. Mom did a total refresher on her look and to tell you the truth she is loving it. And if that makes her happy, we are all happy here at the Hotel Thompson. And she hasn’t gotten one bad comment about her hair yet which is even more awesome. In fact, she’s gotten a lot of compliments. It’s a cool thing and I’m hoping our guests next week will absolutely dig it. I’m sure they will be shocked – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

        Have they cousin? Do you really think these peeps have seen my blog? Could it be someone who doesn’t watch blogs? Come on – you can tell everyone now – it’s you, right? XOXO – Bacon

    I want some too! Did it take a long time? Did you have to bleach it first? It looks modern and fun, good for you!

      Snorts! Mom’s original hair color (of course we have never seen it) is black. She says she’s been having fun as a blonde/brown for over 20 years. On this date, she wanted something different. It only took about an hour – that’s with a wash, the dye job and a fresh cut. What I like about it is that it’s subtle. It doesn’t scream, “HERE COMES PURPLE” You know? It really shines in the light outside. Thanks for your kind remarks. XOXO – Bacon

        You are right, it is a subtle colour and still a definite change! Very lovely colour! My colour is red-brownish (more brown) – interspersed with white hairs. That’s ok, I have the age for that. I could not wear contacts, as I have astigmatism – I look with both eyes in different directions (not cross eyed, quite the reverse) – and while glasses focus my eyes in one direction, contacts would not.

      • Piglove

        05/18/2016 at 3:55 pm

        aaww thanks for the kind comments. Mom is digging her new color and loving it. She told daddy the other night that it still takes her back when she looks in the mirror and sees it – especially after all of these years seeing blonde. XOXO – Bacon

        I always thought blue on black would look nice. 😊

        ooohhh it does! When you look at mom, you see black at first. When it glitters in the sun outside or under lights, then you get the purple. It’s great fun she says 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    Your mom is very brave. Our Lady can hardly venture from her natural hair colour. Hope the contacts work for her (Lady did try them but had reactions to the chemicals and they hurt her eyes).

    • Piglove

      05/18/2016 at 2:43 pm

      Oh no my friends ((HUGS)) to your mom. My mom has worn them for years but stopped a couple of years back. She finally decided to go back to them a couple of months ago. She says that she is older now and she wanted different because she could. Weird huh? XOXO – Bacon

    You go girl! Looks awesome! We need to change it up sometimes. I stopped coloring my hair altogether and let the grey come in. It is kinda streaked and kinda cool and I’m diggin’ it. Something I never thought I would say about grey hair! Enjoy your new look! 🙂

    • Piglove

      05/18/2016 at 3:55 pm

      aaww thanks my sweet friend. It’s good to change things up and make them yours. Mom is loving her new style and I say strut my friend – be proud of those greys! XOXO – Bacon

    Look at all these comments…Loving it. I see purplish close to your face. I saw a woman downtown with a pinkish tinge to her hair…you could see this colour very well in the sun. I loved her hair and I like purple better so I’d love yours. Contacts too! Very good my friend.


    • Piglove

      05/19/2016 at 10:03 am

      aaww thanks sweetie!! Mom is having a lot of fun with it for sure. And the purple color really does show up in the lights or outside in the sun. XOXO – Bacon

    Now you be good to your Mom, Bacon. She’s the hand that feeds you! But, actually, she looks mah-ve-lous! You tell her that for me. OKAY?

    Your mom’s hair looks great, but since Jan cuts her own, we assume we won’t be seeing a change of hair color around here any time soon.

    Mom is rockin’ it! I love contacts! And I can’t help but notice the bold hair colors and wonder how a touch of turquoise would look.
