Haircuts & Road-trips & Other Interesting Things

I chopped off my hair!  I've pretty much kept my hair short for most of my life, rarely adventuring below my shoulders and typically maintaining a chin length style.  I've definitely gone crazy with the colors (red, blue, black, purple, and one attempt at a home bleach job...not pretty), and once cut it short right before joining the military, but couldn't muster the courage to do it again.  Until recently.

The first couple are from the very first haircut, which was wonderful, but slightly too long and still waaaay too thick (I have tons of hair.  Maybe not very thick, but a lot a lot of hair).  The last picture, while it might not look much different, is after my second haircut where I had them thin out and trim up the bulk.  Needless to say, I am simply in love with it.  So easy to manage!  There is a legitimate chance I may never grow my hair out again!

If you read my last post, then you know I am in Washington state right now, spending much loved time with my in-laws.  The ten hour drive up was long, especially with pups to deal with, but Northern California is always a pleasure to drive through.  Please ignore the lack of editing, I'm too impatient for that right now.

 Watching the fog roll down Shasta Mountain was amazing.

We've been taking advantage of the lack of rain here and frequent the local playground often with Ninja, Sass, & Joshua.  I love being around all of this greenery, although the clouds are starting to wear on me a little.

I possibly could have broken this up into a few different posts so it wouldn't be so long, but I am so excited to be able to upload pictures on my own computer, and I couldn't wait.  We will be visiting the pumpkin patch tomorrow, going paint balling soon, taking a day trip to Seattle, flying to South Carolina, driving to Kentucky, and possibly bleaching my hair, so you should probably check back to see what shenanigans we are up to in the near future.
