I Finally Did It

I finally did it. After over a month of talking myself into it, I finally did it. I had been wanting to change my hair for a while. I never thought I would look good with short hair. I've never had short hair; it has always always been long. I was bored with my long hair and I wanted to cut it. But how much to cut off? Then I found that hair mixer thing and started playing with that and realized I didn't look that bad with short hair, even if it was fake! So that's when the wheels really started turning and I started to plan on cutting it. I still had about a month left of softball and I was afraid of not being able to put my hair in a pony tail so I decided to wait till that was over. My last game was last night, I had made the appointment at the beginning of the week; I knew that if I didn't make the appointment I wouldn't do it. Today at 10 am I walked into the Paul Mitchell School and got a girl who was finishing the program that day (thank goodness!!!!). She started to measure my hair and we found I had enough to give to Locks of Love. I wanted to give my hair, but I didn't think I'd have enough with the length I wanted to cut it. I was really excited and felt a bit better about the hair cut knowing that my beautiful hair wasn't going in the trash. So... the entire time I just kept saying, "I can't believe it... this is so weird...." I had huge knots in my stomach and I know there are a lot of pictures, but I'm documenting the whole thing on here for those who know how big of a deal this was to me. I'll have more pictures on facebook. After 2 hours and 10 inches later it was done.

I was terrified. I wanted to do it but I was scared the whole way. What you see here is knots in my stomach.
A bit scared... A bit excited.....
This meant it was all over. No going back! I was in shock from this point on, both Linds and my hair dresser are laughing at me.
Looking at this, I wish she had cut it another inch shorter.
I was laughing hysterically as she kept handing me my hair, I didn't know what to do with it!

It was really unreal....
This is while it was happening. She took her time and made sure everything was strait.
The end product! Some more of my hair. The bangs are taking some getting used to.
I can't believe it's all gone! But I sure am happy with it. I really love it, Jaren likes it and I think he likes it more and more as he see's it. I told him I might not ever have long hair again if I like this enough and he said, that'll be okay. I think my face looks different, Jaren says it looks thinner which makes me happy cause that was one of my worries. I'm so excited to try all sorts of new things with it! What do you think??

Little bitty Whitney!! your hair is now as little as you are, and it is really cute. I thought that was a picture of Linds at the bottom, smiling in the car. Now I want to see a pic of both of you doing same face expression together. I can't wait to see it! --Mom
