Locks of Love

I am really sorry I didn't post my new hair picture last night...I was tired and had a long day at work and basically figured you all could wait until morning. Then, when I got up this morning my computer was off and I didn't really have time to get it all back on and do an entire post. Especially since it was the new guys first day and I didn't think it would be smart to be 20 minutes late on his first day....any other day that would have been fine. it is!

I will say that I don't think this is the best picture of it, and I actually like it a lot more in real life. Nick took this pic late last night and I just look kind of bla. The color is actually brighter than this....okay, I decided to take another quick self is me today!

Now, that being say, I will tell you that I love love love my hair. I really forgot how much I love it short. When I went into work yesterday I was telling a couple of girls how I was a little anxious about the cut. One of the girls then says "Oh, but it will be so great! Even if you don't like you hair, the fact that you are donating it to Locks of Love will make it so worth it!" and I think in my head "Shit! Did I tell you I was donating my hair to locks of love???" I mean, I THOUGHT about the way you think maybe I will join the peace core or maybe I will move to Costa Rica and save the sea turtles (that's just for you Tarp) but a couple of people told me it was kind of a pain, and I don't really mess with things that are in any way annoying, so I had TOTALLY let the thought go.

Why do I do this to myself. What I should have said to her a week ago was "I am thinking about donating my hair, I might look into it if I ever get around to it, but I most likely wont", But instead I said " I am cutting off my hair and donating it to the children because it is so big hearted of me and clearly the right thing to do" (or something like that). So after taking a few peoples advice who shall remain nameless to just lie about it and pretend I donated it, I finally got around to googling it. Well, let me tell you, it is no big deal at all! As a matter of fact, I will even link to it just in case anybody else wants to donate hair to locks of love! It just needs to be 10 inches, and you just mail it in! How easy to be a good person!

Now, when I get to the salon and tell Tony that I want to cut it off and sent it in to Locks of Love, I became an instant celebrity! Everyone was telling me how great I was, and every new person who came into the salon was told about it and then they showed them my chopped off pony tail! They all Ooh-ed and Ahhh-ed and were just shy of throwing me a parade. Everyone kept telling me I was basically the BEST and they just couldn't believe I was so kind hearted to grow my hair out for charity. I did tell them (over and over) that I did not grow my hair out for charity, but rather for my wedding. I left out that I was guilted into donating it. I figured that info would do then no good at all. Anyways, now I have wonderful short hair and the good feeling of giving a wig to a child. Can't beat that!


  1. Who would have told you to lie about it????
    Glad you're sending in the hair, love the new look

  2. I just wanted to say, I love the blog!, and I'm glad you decided to send your hair to Locks of Love. I send mine in once every 3-4 months (it grows extremely fast & I cut it back to my shoulders each time), and it has always been so easy to deal with.

  3. I like the new look! Your hair looks great. I like the "Locks of Love" thing very much. It seems like a great thing to do. My hair never grows long enough to donate or I would do that too. I think it's very cool.

  4. I think You are very cool!!!!

    and cute!!

    Love, Mom

  5. Love your hair. Short hair is just so easy!! And helping a kid - well, that's a real bonus.

    Still no bubbles on the page?

  6. I just wanted to add, I wrote about your blog in my Fresh Look Friday Blog Promotion Meme!
