Yesterday I decided I had enough with my hair. I had just blow dried it straight. My last time blow drying it straight this long. It was indeed time for a change. A much needed change. My hair was starting to feel heavy. I was throwing it into a bun or pony tail a lot because I really just don't have the time to do stuff with it. In the mornings, forget about it - trying to get the 2 boys out the door is a challenge in itself. The evenings? Forget about it - I'm wiped these days. And I'm sure my time will be even less when Baby 3 is born. Time? What's time?

So I went to go see my sister's friend Kristin (whom everyone I know goes to as well), and showed her a few ways my hair has been short in the past, showed her a cute image I found online of a recent trendy short hair style, and then told her I trusted her to do what she thought would look best on me and my shape face, etc.

I really love how it came out. It needs some time to grow on me though. I totally thought Jamie would be surprised (I didn't tell him I was going for a haircut), but he saw it and actually said he liked it, and wasn't surprised as it wasn't the first time I've chopped my hair off while pregnant.

I feel freer. My hair was getting thick and it really was weighing me down. Now for the real test, to see if I can do my hair just as nicely as the hairdresser did, when I style it next after my next shower. Or even blow dry it just as nicely as she did. I'm sure my hair will actually blow dry a lot quicker these days.

I received another free credit for an audio book. What do you suggest I get? I'm stuck for ideas. I do still have a bunch of books to read (hardcover or paperback) but I can't do that while driving to work, so I've been really into listening to audio books on the 30 minute drive to work and the 30 minute drive home from work. Any good suggestions?

Kristin did an awesome job, as always! I always tell her to do what she wants too :) Glad you like her work too!

Very nice! Sometimes we just need a change, right? I'm sure you'll do fine styling it, short hair is easier.

I think the hair cut looks really cute. One of the ladies at work has a similar do.
