Summer hair

So, the boys all got their hair nice and short for the hot summer that is quickly approaching us. Well, for some time I have been loving every cute short hair cut I see and wishing I had short hair. But I kept telling myself that I had finally gotten it nice and long and that I should enjoy it for a while. But real life kept me pulling that hair into a pony tail almost everyday and when it was down it was never quite as pretty as I wanted. It was frizzy unless I flat ironed it and it took way too much time to curl when the only people I see regularly are 4 small children, check out people at grocery stores, people at the gym and a husband who doesn't seem to take notice of much when it comes to me. So I looked at some cute pictures of short hair online and made up my mind to just chop it. Friday morning I looked like this.He let me make the first cut.




Friday night like this. Trent had no warning and I think he is getting used to it. He wasn't negative. He just said, "wow" and pretty much left it at that. I am liking it and am excited to play around with it even more. It is pretty weird washing my hair and running my fingers around in it. I find myself doing a double take when I walk past mirrors.


Saturday we got to go on a way-past-due date night. A temple session together and dinner at The Cheesecake Factory was just what the doctor ordered. Thanks to Trent's dad for watching the kids for us! What a treat :)

Love the hair! You have such a feminine face & you pull off the cut great! Makes me think I need to go with a style rather than grow it out like I am.

You look GREAT! I love it- and thinking about how my hair has been pulled back in a ponytail about 97% of the past year I think I need to cut mine off too! My face is way to huge to go that short, but really, you look so hot! I'm glad the girls night was fun too- sorry I missed it again!
