Twelve Inches

(By the way, I'm sorry I had to turn the comment moderation back on. I kept getting comment spam.)

That bunch of hair down there is no trick. I've been wanting to chop my hair off for the past 6 months, but because I was so close to having enough for Locks of Love, I decided to stick it out until spring. (My 16-year-old cousin is recovering from cancer and had lost all of her hair at one point. That made me want to do it, too.)



I don't think I'll miss those 12 inches. Or picking it off the floor, the sink, my back, the baby, the drain. Or spending way too much time fixing it and end up pulling it back in a pony tail by 2:00 anyway. Or getting it caught in the seatbelt, the car door, my wedding ring. Need I go on?

The only redeeming quality those 12 inches had was giving me a long, bouncy ponytail. I liked that.

I threw more pics of Sophie in. Her new favorite play area is the bathroom. Notice how she bangs on the door with determination to get in. She's not fussing though... she was happy-yelling.

Chelsea, I think we're twins. I looked back at your blog because I couldn't remember how short you'd gone and we're pretty darn close to having the same hair. Haha.

And I learned from my cousin Mary that you need a kiss-face shot everytime you model new hair. So here's mine.

Birds of a feather: Cassia is almost done growing her hair out for Locks of Love too. I don't know if she'll do a kissy-face shot for our blog, though. :)

Natash, I totally love your hair do and I'm going to do that in a couple more inches! :) And my mom loves it too! We think you look like a babe, because YOU DO! :)

LOVE the new hair!!!

Chelsea said...

I love it! and you're right about us being twins! I think you have shorter bangs, but overall, it's the same. How funny.

Okay, to make your comment about being pulled back by 2 even funnier, I find myself pulling my hair back even now that it's shorter. I will say this style looks really cute with a top section pulled back.

Did I mention that I'm planning on going darker? My MIL calls my haircolor purple and I'm getting tired of it, so I'm thinking the darkest brown I can find or black. Oh, and we're moving. And I'm going to officially change my name to Alexander (according to the Gov'mnt it's Watkins). Does it sound like I've joined Witness Protection?

Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!

Shea said...

I LOVE it Nat...It looks great! (You also look so skinny...I'm jealous!)

Natalie said...

Wow... thanks guys :) I owe it all to my master stylist, though!

Cassia & Brynn... how awesome you guys are doing Locks for Love, too! I had no idea. I fully expect a kiss-face shot from the both of you when you're done! (C'mon Cassia -- I know you have it in you :))

Jessie Jo said...

It looks really cute? Who did that for you?? They must be really good.

Natalie said...

Oh, an awesome friend of mine. If you ever need a cut, I'll send you to her. :)

Mary said...

I can't tell you how hard I'm laughing right now! Thank you SOO much for modeling the kiss-face shot, and thank you even more for pointing out that I do that, because I definitely had never thought about it before. You hair looks GREAT! It's making me jealous-- which is saying a lot since I'm ready to have my long hair back again. I love it!
