I gave my hair to locks of love & CA here I come!

Hello lovely ocean dreamers!
So I'm staying up late to get one last post in before I head to CA.
I'll try my best to post as frequently as I can but I want to spend every moment
available to me with my love whom I have not seen in 2 months!
I'll do my best to keep up with all of your blogs too. :)

I had an hair appointment planned today
and the plan was to trim my hair and get my bangs back.
However, I had been itching for a change and when I sat down 
I asked Sarah how many inches I should get cut off of my hair for it to be healthy.
She replied at least two inches. I thought that was doable but I didn't want that to 
take away from my length because I was trying to keep it as long as possible so I 
could donate it to Locks of Love. So next I asked her how much hair I would
have left if I decided today to give my hair to Locks of Love.
She measured my hair and showed me. I guess I didn't realize
how much hair I had. So I decided today was the day.

Well, I guess I reached my goal to give away my hair in April 
rather than 2012. I wanted to originally keep my hair until I got
married because it is my dream to have 
long flowing hair for my wedding day.
However, today I thought to myself: 
"My hair is just that. Hair. Somebody needs
this more than me." 
 I'm not posting this to get praise.  
I appreciated all of the sweet
compliments on Twitter but honestly - 
I want to see you ladies, if you feel like this
is how you want to give, to give your hair to 
Locks of Love too.  

It's an easy way to make a difference in someone's life. 
Someone (a little girl) needs the hair 
when you can easily grow yours back. 
That is what made me decide to give my hair away today. 
My hair can grow back and
I can get extensions for my wedding in the future 
(I'm not even engaged, ha ha) so why not? 
So it was decided and Sarah cut my hair.
I felt good about my decision. 
Something in me was nudging me
to give away my hair to someone in need.
Here is what my new hair style looks like:
I'm still not used to it. I keep reaching up wondering where
it all went! I like the lighter feel of it however.

Wanna see my 10" of hair that I am going to send in?
It kind of looks funny but here you go. I took a picture of it
by the door way because I loved the sunlight and the background
of my backyard with the nature, which reminded me of hope. 
Hope is what you and I provide when we help someone in need. :)
So there you have it. I'm excited to surprise BK because he doesn't
even know that I chopped off my hair! He he I wonder if he will even notice.
No offense to our men but sometimes they just don't even realize when you
get your hair done or cut, lol. I would think he would notice that I cut my 
hair though since I have 10" inches less of my hair. :)

I can't wait to head to Cali. 
What do I have waiting for me there?
Well, this amazing man for one.
Ha ha this picture of him at Disneyland makes me laugh. :)
The beach. Need I say more? Oh and that's BK's reflection.
He takes pictures of the beach all of the time for me and e-mails
them to me. I love that.
All of my Southern CA food is amazing, especially this Greek salad.

Okay I better head to bed!
I hope you all are having an amazing week.
Don't forget to enter into NuMe's Meet & Greet Giveaway! :)

    Plus your short hair looks awesome!

  20. How wonderful of you! Donating hair is an amazing idea. And your new hair style looks so great. I was going to get my hair cut next week, but I might grow it a bit more now and look into ways to donate here in London.

    im your new follower hoping to be followed back by you

  26. Your hair cut looks fantastic!!

  27. You know I love your new do! And I love your sweet giving spirit. I'd really like to do this with mine but it gets pretty thin and stringy when I grow it too long so I'm not sure they would want mine! Might be worth looking into, though.

    I hope you have a wonderful time with your man and soak up that Cali sun! xoxo

  28. good on you for doing that with your gorgeous long tresses very brave but I have to say the new cut really suits you, you have such a pretty face shorter flatters you more

  30. okay- first off, your new hair looks hot! regardless if you donated it or not, the cut is a great move!! Secondly, that is so sweet of you to donate it!!! My friend always does that, like literally grows her hair for that purpose and I think it's so amazing, you are truly giving a gift and this is so win-win!!! Also, have so much fun in CA, I know it's where your heart is in more ways than one... :) love the new hair, did I mention that?? :)

    I LOVE your new haircut! You are such a beauty! :) That takes a lot of guts to do that and you are so thoughtful. I am sure BK will love it! I love your new blog header! :) Have fun with BK and I hope you have a wonderful time. :)

  33. Super cute hair! Have a great time in Cali.

  35. LOVE the short hair!!! YAY!! Congrats on the donation!

  36. love the new look and i love the new blog layout!!

  37. Your hair looks awesome! I love the new look. I know how you feel: I donated 12" to Locks of Love in 2007, and I don't think I will ever have long hair again! I love my new short, layered look, and I've kept it ever since. :)

  38. Aw I think that is SO wonderful! Good for you! The cut you got is so cute and flattering for your face shape!

    I don't know if I could do it... I will cut mine soon, and did grow it out for my wedding so we'll see. The hubby doesn't prefer short hair so I may just cut a few inches off and get more layers, or longer bangs or something :)


Thanks for the comment love! Candy sends you and puppy hello (aka barky bark)!
