Mama needs a Makeover Too.

Since having Dmitri, my looks and appearance have not exactly been on the top of my priorities. Rather, they have sunk quite low on the totem pole...somewhere between building a tree house and churning my own butter. But since looking at some recent photos of myself, I've realized I need a change. Now, I don't support vanity or "the beauty myth," but it's still important to me that I feel good about myself and look presentable.

So I decided a hair cut was just what I needed. You can see some before pictures in my post where I wear a onesie! & Here is a recent family photo that we had taken...




And here I am 10 inches lighter. Please ignore that unlike the above photo, these were not only taken by myself, but also with my iPhone, unedited, and to add to it...there is a trashcan in the background. What the heck.






I'm loving the shorter look. And I know I'm really going to love it tomorrow morning when I'm [not] blow drying my hair!

You just HAD to go and be even cuter, didn't you? That looks GREAT on you!

oh my gosh you really chopped it off! it's adorable on you! I'm never brave enough to go through with big cut!

Rachel and John said...

Love it! It's super summery! I'm already jealous that you won't need to blow dry it. I have a really ugly cowlick right at the front of my head so I would need to blow dry it no matter what length my hair was. Boo.

Oh wow you are simply gorgeous, I love the shorter locks....wish I could get more daring, a couple of inches is about as much as i can handle, if you visit my site you will see what i mean, long hair city...although now i am getting gray too. urghhh,

Thanks for checking out my bedroom makeover at Remodelaholic. I have to admit, I say Wow a lot when I look at that wallpaper :-)

I just read your onesie story -- that's hilarious!! I totally don't see those catching on...

Your short new haircut looks great :-) I just had mine cut short last week, and it looks and feels SO much better. And yeah, no more blow dryer!!

The haircut looks great on you. You skinny people can do lots of cute things like that. It really brings out how cute your face is though. I need the long hair to hide the 7 chins that I need to get rid of first! You are right though, it is how you feel about yourself that counts.

Mandi Miller said...

Wow! That looks REALLY good on you! I could never have the guts to do that but you wear it beautifully!!!

JIW said...
