What I Love About Me- It's Hair-tastic!

"The wise know the value of friendship, and that it is wisdom to be a friend to oneself too." -A.C. Grayling

Welcome to Week 7 of "What I Love About Me!" hosted by Twins Plus One, Three Times the Fun and Twingle Mommy!

Here's how it works -
Write a post about what you love about yourself this week and then add it to the linky list below. This is intended to be a time and place for each of us to stop criticizing ourselves for a few minutes and actually remind ourselves of the characteristics we are proud to own. So go ahead, look in the mirror, and see yourself through your loved one's eyes. Notice the beauty first. Here's your place to shine!

A few simple guidelines -

Please follow the two hostesses. If you are a new follower, please comment so we can follow you too! :)

We'd love it if you posted the button and the linky list, but it is not mandatory. The button code is on my left sidebar.

Feel free to link to your homepage or your specific "What I Love About Me!" post. We want this to be a fun, relaxing hop so we'll accept all links as long as they are family-friendly. Thanks!

The linky will be open all week so feel free to link-up on your own time!

Today what I love about me is my new hair cut!

After months of neglect that I shamelessly blamed on babies and then a break-up with my on-again/off-again stylist, I found a new place last month. While entertaining two babies in a stroller, I lost several inches and added bangs and layers. Gone was my safety ponytail. For the first time in several years, I had a haircut that was easy-breezy—-perfect for summer and perfect for someone who will admit she no longer washes her hair every day.

Unfortunately, easy-breezy grows out, so I did something I haven’t done in a while.

I actually went in for trim instead of a total re-do.

I am happy to report that I like the trimmed version just as much as I liked the original cut.

To appreciate how far I’ve come and how some things really do get better with age, I present to you a look at my hair through the years…

Super cute! Love the bangs!

I, too, admit that I don't wash my hair every day either :)

Loving the new do!!! Super cute!!

I also love the comparison pictures!! Too fun!! I have to say you look a lot better then what I look in the late 80's early 90's...can we say bouffant?!?!

Happy Monday!!

I am sooo "feelin'" the new do!! Runner-Up...2003! :)

I loved the 'Hair Through the Years" show...that would be a fun posting for all of "uss" to do! (I may just have to bloglift that idea because it's THAT good! LOL)

BTW- Considering how "wild" hair was in the 80's...your's was pretty tame. I wish you would have clued the rest of us in...hahaha!

Have a great rest of your week!

I know this was from a while ago, but I love your "now" hair and your "2003" hair! My hair gets too darn frizzy to do anything fun with it!
