My new do!

Today I did something that I haven't done in a very long time. I got a hair cut. This morning, I looked like this:

And now, I look like this.

I'm quite pleased with my new look and I feel like I lost 10 pounds. Actually, I'm really hoping that I did lose 10 pounds since I know I have gained a bit this week due to my trip to the State Fair of Texas.

When Bailey was in 2nd grade, she cut her hair and donated it to Locks of Love. I was (and still am) very proud of her for doing that. I've toyed with the idea of doing it myself for quite some time, but you have to have 10 inches and that always made me scared that my remaining hair would be too short. My hair had finally gotten long enough that I was ok with losing 10 inches.

In case you are not familiar with Locks of Love, here's the link to read more. I'll be mailing them my ponytail tomorrow.

oh my god I love love LOVE it! You look fabulous! I actually had the check the dates on the pictures because you look like you lost weight just between the top and bottom! (I guess you did lose about 10 lbs of hair)

It looks great, Wendy, and it really does make you look even skinnier. I always liked your long hair, but I think I like this even more.

But then, you've always been beautiful!

Whoa! You look so different! I had no clue what was coming and I actually gasped out loud when I saw the picture. I love it! And I'm with Erin, it really does make you look like you lost weight between the top and the bottom. Do you get to sleep an extra hour now?

Wendy, just wanted to let you know like everyone else I love your new hair style. Not only does it make you look thinner but it takes atleast 10 years off you. You go girl.
