Locks of Love

I had been thinking about cutting my hair short for quite some time but was feeling a little nervous about leaving behind the comfort of my good 'ol ponytail! But while my sister was here visiting, she chopped it for me. She cut off a 12-inch pony that I donated to Locks of Love. Here are the dramatic pics.



Nervously awaiting the snippity-snip of the scissors. As Cynthia cut the ponytail off, I could feel the weight of it dropping and I started to scream! I kept on screaming while she handed me my hair. Unbelievable!I could not believe what I had just allowed my sister to do...and yes, I was still screaming!All of the screaming caused concern and curiosity from Jacob (Josh didn't really care). He was making my doubts even worse with comments like: "Mom, why do you look like Aunty?" "Mom, why did you cut your hair? Put that back on!"And once while Cynthia was trimming it up, the hair was covering my right eye, "Mom, what happened to your other eye?" (As if Cynthia had gone a little too crazy with all of the cutting.) Willie came home early and we were still finishing up. This is what he found sitting on the toaster oven...welcome home, honey!

Wow Natalie! You are brave! I think I'd be screaming too. . . no more ponytails? AAAHHHHHHH!
So, now you need to post a picture of the final haircut/style.
Oh, and it's fun to see pictures of you- you look EXACTLY the same as you did 9 years ago! :)

Well, I LOVE it and I think that it makes it even that much better cause you donated your hair. I have always wanted to do that but get too sick of my hair long and chop it before it's long enough to donate. So, good for you and you look fabulous!!!!

Good for you Natalie. It is so hard to cut off that much hair. I would love to donate some of mine someday.

WOW!!! That is soooo cool Natalie!!!! You are the bomb, cause I don't know if we would have the guts to do something like that. You truly are an example, that or just plain crazy... ;o} Either way we love the story, the screaming and of course the new look. Talk about hot mama!!!
