Eight inches lighter.
Finally went in on Tuesday and got my hair done. I was really undecided what I was doing. But had thought if there was eight inches back there to donate to Locks of Love, without it being buzzed above my ears, I’d go for it!
(With my amazing stylist, Kelly. I’ve gone to her for almost 15 years!! I was one of her very first customers… feels like we’ve grown up together in many ways – we’ve certainly been through alot of hair trauma together, and it’s only because of her i’m not completely bald!! ;) She has a disease that is effecting her eye sight. Almost blind in one eye, and just found out her other one is now weakening. She is not a believer, and my heart is so burdened for her to know the Source of true peace! It’s sobering watching someone you care about walk through life and go through trials and yet refuse to turn to Jesus for answers… I just pray that God would take the seeds planted in her heart and bring them to fruition. And she’s SO SWEET – isn’t it kinda “funny” when someone who isn’t a Christian can be a whole lot nicer than alot of Christians around ya (?) hmmm….).
It’s taken a bit getting used to the last few days… kinda like getting a leg amputated (though i know that’s permanent, and this temporary). Still, habits you didn’t realize you had… like pulling your hair around one shoulder and braiding it! Now, your hands reach the end before it even makes it halfway around! Still, it’s been forever since I’ve had it cut – and this short at that. So, I think I’ll like the change. Shayne does. and Ben told me today, “mom, your new hair makes you look better!” ha! ;) (makes ya wonder what you looked like before)

Can’t believe another weekend is upon us. I have not even put one Christmas decoration up yet! Well, the tree is – w/ the lights on it. It’s starting to grow on me and I think I might just leave it so. ;) Been too busy decorating for other people I haven’t got it done here, or when I do have time don’t feel like it. :/ I know, I know… sad. I think tonight though I’m going to make every effort to put myself in the holiday spirit and go to town on turning this place into a winter wonderland… uh, well.. sorta!

Lots of you have messaged/ facebooked lately and asked what editing program I use for the headers here and such… I use a super easy, free program on line called Picnik. I first heard about it from my friend Cara back in the summer. I’ve had alot of fun with it. And if you’re still working on Christmas pics or that special one for grandparents you might give it a try. I just got mine back the first of the week and some shots that I thought weren’t so great turned out cuter than I thought. :) Thank the Lord for editing, eh? ;) Love their fonts especially! so enjoy.
