I did something kind of drastic...

I cut 10 inches of hair off!

I have no make-up on and the kids towels from swimming practice are hanging up to dry.
Here is real life, ha ha!

I wasn't planning on cutting off this much hair, it's a bit shorter than I had envisioned.
But I really wanted to donate my hair to Locks of Love.

Where I had wanted it cut would have only given them 8 1/2 to 9 inches of hair and they need 10.
In my mind though, it's a no brainer.
Cut the extra 1 to 1 1/2 inches off and give them the hair.
My hair will grow back in no time at all.

I love being able to give this gift.

I'm not quite sure what I think of my current do, it's very different that my original idea.
Oh well, I am sure that I will love it and be comfortable with it in no time.

It's like K reminded me when I first got home:
You never like your hair for a few days after getting it cut but then love it.

Yep, it will look great.
Even better though, someone else is getting the gift of hair.
That my friends, is the greatest part.
After all, it's just hair.

P.S. Can we just pretend that I didn't tell you that I was donating it?
It's feels weird sharing that but I wanted to explain why it was shorter than I intended.
Thanks lovelies!


  1. Love it!
    You are so beautiful!
    i can't believe how great you look without make-up!
    It must feel so nice for the summer.
    I think it is so important to show our girls things like long hair and what clothes we wear do not matter.
    Well done.

  2. Exactly! It's just hair. Bonus is that yore friggin' adorable with that haircut!

  3. Nothing wrong with telling people you're donating it!
    What a coincidence - I got my hair chopped today, too. But mine wasn't too long to begin with. They only took of about 4 1/2 inches. I think it's about a quarter inch too short, but I told her if she cuts it too short I didn't care because it'll grow back.
    Anyway - I think your hair is ADORABLE!!!! You'll love it the first time you wash your hair and only need a dime size dab of shampoo. I can't wait to wash my hair tomorrow.

  4. AHHH!!!!


    Your hair is so cute! And if look even YOUNGER. No one is ever gonna believe that the cupcakes are REALLY yours...LMAO!

    Such a good proud of you! I donated there once...when I cut off THREE FEET of my hair. Yeah. I'm a little bit insane. And drastic too.


  5. I'm so glad you donated your hair! I've done that twice now, and even though I miss my hair, I know that it went to a good cause. Be proud that you helped out a child in need!

  6. I absolutely LOVE it! you are such a beautiful person, inside and out! Glad you got to donate your hair, you made someone a very happy person!
