LOOK WHAT I DID

See that? That's my NECK. It's not sweaty. Cuz there's no hair touching it. (Pssst. It's hard to take a picture of the back of your head.)













This week I was with a couple of girlfriends. I was commenting about the heat. Well - moaning and groaning on the floor is more like it - and swore I was going to shave my head. My friends said, "let's cut your hair!" and I said, "okay!"
And so we did.

And I like it.
I feel perky. Kinda funky. And when it's wet I look like a Romanian gymnast. (Except that I'm 5'7" and well over 85 pounds.)
And the BREEZE, people. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Plus I bet I lost a good 200 grams.
I still use too much shampoo. And I can't stop touching it. And my kids look at me weird.
But the BREEZE. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.


Don't cry, Mom. It'll grow. If I let it.

It's cute and so fresh! Ahhhh!

Melonie said...

WOW - it looks ADORABLE!!!

I know what you mean about that feeling. My SIL was a stylist and cut my hair and Chatty's for us before we left for Okinawa. (Good thing, too, cuz we arrived to temps in the high 90s. LOL) My hair felt so swingy, I kept shaking my head like a wet St. Bernard. (Which I'm sure was just a HAWT analogy for my poor husband. haha)

Fun, fun. I was just thinking last night - I wonder how I'd look with the ol' GI Jane 'do. There's a woman here who has a schnitz and she looks AWESOME. I think I have time to do it and look awful and grow it back before my hubby comes back. ;-)

I love it! And I really love that clip holding it back. I'm all about keeping the hair out of my face!

Brittany Ann said...

It's super cute! I like it a lot, and I'm sure it'll help with the heat. And don't worry, you'll get used to the shampoo thing. :)

Alias said...

SUPER cute. Love it.
I'm a recent finder-of-your blog and I've really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your experiences, your laughs, your optimism, your faith, and your joy!

Good luck with the big move coming up. :/

Gorgemous! Love it...makes me want to cut mine, but not yet!

Melissa P said...

Darling hair! Very cute cut on you. I've been trying to grow mine back out. I think I am rethinking now that it is getting close to summer.

Rachel said...

Cute! Seriously, chopping my hair off is one of my favorite things to do!

Deb said...

1. Cute. Super cute.

2. I have been in a cycle of yo-yo hair growth for years. I cut it, love it short, swing my head around like an idiot for weeks, then let it grow for a while, forgetting how awesome it is to have short hair until I get so fed up with my long hair that I cut it.

Don't let this happen to you! You can break the cycle!

gina said...

You are beautiful, and that hair cut looks so cute on you. I love a new hair cut, swishing it from side to side and feeling the bounce of it. Hmmmm, maybe I need to call my stylist.

Love it!

Head Nurse or Patient- you be the judge said...

It looks very attractive on you- and I can imagine it does help with the heat. Aren't you guys heading into "fall" about now?

Korbi said...

oh, it's cute! Way to go! That's what I always tell my mom after I whack off my hair, or for that matter dye it blue, "ah, mom, it's just hair." :)

LisAway said...

That is DARLING.

trublubyu said...

so cute and feminine! love that neck.

Stepper the Mighty said...

Oh-mah-goodness! That is just the greatest. Look look LOOK what it does to your cheekbones! Stunning!

You guys did this yourselves, you say? Major chops! I'm a fan of the homemade do myself - but few women are gutsy enough to play with scissors. ESPECIALLY on a whim! Major, major chops!

LOVERLY!

Tessa Nelson said...

ITs so cute! I just did the same thing!!! Except that here in MN my neck is COLD! I am going to have to be a scarf girl, at least til it gets a bit warmer here. Do your friends know how to cut hair? I wouldn't just randomly let my friends cut my hair:-) It is really cute!!!

Melanie J said...

Oh, it is super cute!

Real Mom, Real Life said...

Hey -- You might just be able to tolerate the heat... every summer I want to do the same thing...

Elizabeth said...

SO cute! I love that last picture where you're flirting with the camera. ;)

You know, you make me want to make MY blog this cool... but I know it would never be as cool as yours, so then I just give up. :P How's the job hunt?

(PS - my word verification is "glogle". What the heck? XP)

Stephanie said...

Nice!

It's funny I was thinking about cutting my hair short before I came...it is humid here in the southeast, but I imagine more so in MG, thought obviously I don't really know!

Anyway looks great and Im glad you are more comfortable! :)

Bethany said...

It's perfect for hot weather-- wish we had that here! ;)

Mrs. M said...

I love it! It looks great on you. (I suppose there is some bias since it looks somewhat like MY hair, but we won't mention that.)

Heather of the EO said...

I LOOOOVE IT. I do! I do! You're just so stinkin' cute.

Kristi said...

gigi said...

Kimberly said...

Why would you grow it back out when it looks and feels so fabulous? Seriously - it suits you beautifully!

Kiera said...

So cute and perky! I love it, too.

wonder woman said...

Kiera is supposed to be me. Whoops again.

Mommadj5 said...

Ok - must say it - cute cut and it makes you look older - which I know you like or I wouldn't point it out!!!

Motherboard said...

You are hot! (with a breeze)

Shelley said...

Way cute! I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. Liberating!
