I chopped off my hair!!

This morning Jason and I decided that I should chop my hair off. It all started when I was blow drying my hair.. I had been working on it for like 15 minutes and it STILL WAS NOT DRY! I was going crazy... so, I decided I wanted it gone! (Jason's 2 stipulations to my cutting my hair short were that I: 1) Put some highlights in my hair, and 2) Let him grow his hair out!) We'll see how that goes! My best friend Kenzi was already planning on trimming my hair today after conference, so rather than having her trim it, I had her cut 10 inches off! She also colored it and highlighted it as well. She is amazing! It turned out so great, or at least I think so! What will I do without her after she leaves on her mission?? It was kind of a spur of the moment decision, but I'm glad I did it.. I have kind of been wanting to cut it for a while, it was just getting on my nerves.

Before we cut it all off, we decided that it could possibly be long enough to donate it to
Locks of Love, here is a little bit about Locks of Love.

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

We checked the website, and the minimum length is 10 inches, so we measured it out, and it was barely enough. Needless to say, I will be donating my ponytails of hair to Locks of Love and hopefully somebody will enjoy and appreciate it more than I did! :)

Well here are some pics of my new do...

I like the hair little sister. It kind of reminds me of Cheryl Burke's hair from Dancing with the Stars. Only when she styles her hair that way though. love you!
