Definately not a blonde!

This morning my sister Karen and her girls, Melissa and Kate and I went browsing for wigs, hats and scarves.  Oh my! What an adventure of sorts! I have always wondered what I would look like in various styles and colours and now I know.....I am definately not a blonde! In the past I have been told " you should have been blonde" "are you sure you're not blonde?"  LOL! (BTW, I love all my blonde friends :) and would be honoured to join their club...)

However, having their support made this trip easier to take....I now need BBB's and the kids' input on this sort of thing. I have received advice that I should take the dog for her approval too as dogs have been known to protest this type of thing ;) Perhaps I will join the ranks of BBB and proclaim that bald is beautiful - not sure yet! This is just some of the prep work required for chemo....

Eat, pray (for patience) and walk!

Lots of Love, Shelley


  1. Shell, you will look beautiful no matter what you choose!

  2. I have to agree with your friend Penny, but I can almost hear your laughter as you tried on the various wigs. Oh my.... :)


  3. I can't comment on the fear of separating flaps or the joy of having clean flaps because I don't really know what that means and can't even visualize it. New hair-do's? Now that I can relate to!! I am so glad you were able to make the best of a tough situation! Who knows? You may end up with that straight hair you claim to have had before you had kids!! Long, short, straight, curly, black, blond, bald...whatever...your inner beauty and courage shines through!
    love and prayers,

  4. I remember the fun we had shopping for boots in Calgary, so I can only imagine the laughter in trying on wigs. What fun! Your positive outlook certainly helps the journey!

  5. Hey, Shell, when you met me I was a blonde and was happy to cross over to "dark side" but remember, blonde, dark or bald, you are still the best! Love ya, good luck Saturday.

  6. Wish I was there as I am sure you enjoyed a few great laughs! Miss you and praying for you everyday!
