To chop or not to chop?

I'm due for a haircut and have been toying around with chopping off my hair for the last few days. The length of my hair is the longest that I've had since ninth or tenth grade. With that said, its been quite an interesting experience trying to find a hairdresser here. I've actually been putting it off. It doesn't help that I'm very particular about who touches my hair. It took me a LONG time to find someone stateside that "understood" and knew how to cut Asian hair (you'd be surprised by how many butchered cuts I've had until I found my guy in Towson, Maryland).  After class today, I trekked over to the other side of the 1st district to make an appointment. With the snow and crazy wind it was hard to navigate to my destination. It also didn't help that I was hobbling all over the place! Usually I like to find my own way, but with the handicap I needed to know the fastest way to get to the salon.  I called Hubs and asked him to give me walking directions from the tram station. I made my way through and made my appointment.  Come Monday, we shall see what I've decided to do.

On my way back to the tram I spotted where the Easter market stalls were being set up. There are two Easter markets that I know are opening this weekend. It's set on our calendar to roam them over the next few weekends. I'm am so giddy with excitement! They are probably not as famous as the Christmas markets, but I'm still thrilled to be able to experience it! We are also going to our first show at the world famous Vienna State Opera this weekend. It's definitely going to be a great weekend compared to last!

My husband is going to be so jealous that you're going to the Staatsoper! He keeps saying he wants Austria to be our next trip abroad so he can get to all those musical stops. Let us know how it goes!

Michelle,

PM me your email address on FB. I will send you a list of places that I've compiled for our family and friends of places to look into if/when people come visit! Would LOVE to get together when you'll take that trip :)
