**Thank you** to everyone who encouraged me to be brave and cut my hair! My little Benjamin wasn't quite so helpful. He literally held my leg as I tried to leave and said "Don't do it, Mommy! Don't cut your hair!"

I did it though...the color is a bit darker than I planned, and the bangs a bit shorter. I'm not sure though...I might just be in shock from all the hair loss I've endured.

It feels great though. It feels like coming home from work or church, feeling all bogged down and hot with the "good" clothes on...and changing into some comfy shorts and a tshirt. Very liberating.

I showed my Mom over the webcam, and she said I look thinner. "You must have lost 5 pounds in hair!". Have I mentioned lately just what a lovely and kind woman my Mama is? (I weighed myself...no luck on the weight loss)

The gal who did my hair is really incredible. Her name is Heidi at Rapunzel, here in Boise. Give her a call, and tell her I sent you!

If you're looking for another great and talented stylist here in Boise, give Suzy a call at her shop Soul-O. I can't find her on the web though. If you'd like her number, drop me an email and I'll give it to you.

Are you screaming yet? Screaming "OKAY ALREADY, WHERE'S THE PICTURE???!!!"

I'm getting to it, just hold your horses...

Here's the photo I brought into the salon with me:

I know, I know...this wasn't even one of the options for you to vote on! I found this one after having that post up for a while. But the ones you guys chose was very similar.

And here's my "after" shot:

What do you think?

I like it. We'll see how I feel about it tomorrow after I do it myself, but for now, I really like it.

Really...what do you think?

P.S. If you hate it and think I made a terrible mistake, this is where you lie through your teeth and tell me it's beautiful! :)

Oh wow! How odd is it that my first comment ever on your blog is to compliment your new hairstyle and color! :)

(Hello, by the way. My name is Lindsay, and it's nice to meet you.)

I think it looks wonderful. I'm not one for handing out empty compliments and superfluous praises, but I really think this haircut suits you perfectly! You look thinner and more awake. (I don't know how to explain that.) LOL! Anyway, from a complete stranger, I love it. Good choice!

I think it looks really cute, Daiquiri, and I'm not just saying that to be polite! It's a good look for you--is it easy to fix?

Love your blog decor and title!
Love the new cut and if I was the stylist I would have so recommended this for your face shape!(as I was one bf kids)

I gave the gift of letting mine grow for a Christmas gift to my dh for one whole year and I'm past pulling it out...I just pull it up all the time now!

Anyways~ I'll be back, incase your wondering?!

It looks great.

I am so ready for a haircut, I've resorted to pulling mine up into a pony every day.

I read the post the showed the choices. I liked a few of them, but don't believe I left a response. When I saw the post "I DID IT" I couldn't wait to see your new cut. I really like it on you, I'm not lieing through my teeth either! :))
