Summer-Do

I guess I was feeling spontaneous the other day.  And I guess my husband's opinion matters a lot (but no surprise there).  He mentioned that my hair was getting long, and reminisced about how cute it was when it was short, when I was pregnant with Christian, like this:
My mom and grandma, and me choking Christian.  Oops. :)
So the next day, I locked myself in the bathroom, and this is what went down:

It will definitely take some getting used to.  I was just ready for something different.  In honesty, I will always like having long hair better.  I love what I can do with it and the way it looks.  But in my current life, I wasn't taking the time to do it so that it actually looked good.  Short will do for now.  (And yes, the plan is to send that skinny little braid to Locks of Love).

And the bangs?  Well, Simon informed me he doesn't like them.  So I may be clipping them back most of the time.  What do you think...will you obey me if I say BE HONEST?!
Now the process starts of growing it long again!  But for now, change is nice.   Chao!
(sorry for the bewildered background: current room renovation!  Details to come soon).

I think it's adorable! And how you can cut your own hair is BEYOND me! I'm not a bangs person, but I think you can definitely pull it off.

Super cute Rachel! Simon is a dum dum I think the bangs are cute! Only you could lock yourself in bathroom and walk out with a haircut like that!! :)

Hair cutting is just one more reason I'm still bitter that you moved east. No one cuts my hair like you could. BAH. You look adorable. Totally hot mommy hair. Or even take out the mommy part. You just look great! The bangs whichever you prefer... you would look cute either way. If you wear them down, I like how they were styled in the bottom row, second from the left. More across the whole forehead.

Later hottie.

You are a beautiful woman and can wear your hair any way and still look lovely and only since you are soliciting opinions, I'd say that I like your bangs in the baby Christian photo better.

You did a great job on cuttting your own hair. Wow.

Well I know I already told you this, but I'll post for the blog world to see that I think it looks FANTASTIC! It does baffle me that you can cut your own hair...love that about you! It's just really stunning...and yes, I'm obeying...I'm being absolutely honest!

It looks really cute! You truly are a free spirit when it come to cutting your hair :) You are very brave. I agree with Kim that if you want to have bangs, you should wear them a little longer. But honestly, I absolutely loved your hair when you had it up for the girls' birthday party. I think that do is you best that I have seen you wear throughout the years. You always look good in it with your bangs pulled back. Really you don't have to worry about your hair because you always look good :) But I agree, always listen to the husband's suggestions :)

Your hubby must the the 2% of men in the world that like short hair! I cut mine last Sept, and my husband has been complaining every since, haha! And I have been copying the styles from your post earlier.
But the bangs and new hair cut are def cute on you!

I agree. Very cute! If I am going to be perfectly honest, I do prefer you with long hair but you are beautiful either way. But I know how that long hair can get bothersome. It's necessary that you chop it every now and again. Holly, I am in the same boat as you. I cut mine the beginning of the year and Greg wasn't thrilled!

Love the new hair! Love it. I like the bangs and all!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you just cut your hair and it looks so good. If I did that, people would think Lincoln took the scissors and chopped my hair! I like long hair too, but I was just thinking of cutting mine. I have had too many pony tail days! I like the bangs a lot! Super cute!
