So to explain...
I lost five pounds this week...of hair.
For the third time, I cut off my hair and donated it to Locks of Love.
I was long overdue for a haircut and it ended up much shorter than I had hoped, but its for a good cause and it's just hair, right?
It'll grow back.
The recipient of my hair is in far more need of it than I, so I would cut more if they asked.
13" to be exact, and I swear to you, it feels like it weighs five pounds!
I have no idea how I've been carrying that around for so long! So much easier to manage and wash, that's for sure!
And in all seriousness, it would have been nice to lose an actual five pounds.
And hopefully, I will.
My dad and I are starting our diet tomorrow and have a bet going for the most percentage of weight lost, winner to be determined in June.
So stay tuned! No, I will not be posting 'before' pictures of myself! Maybe after! See me in June. :0)
And on to the date...
this past Tuesday my husband and I celebrated eight years of marriage!
We didn't do anything on the actual date,
but did get out together this past Friday.
Sad, but true, this was our first date in at least two years, if not longer.
We enjoyed dinner and conversation with no interruptions
and a nice adult movie
(as in one that is not animated, not the other one! Eeewww!).
And a double date with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie isn't too shabby!
(we saw The Tourist)
This is us eight years ago on our honeymoon in Cancun.
This is what I'm hoping my 'after' picture will look more like!
If anything, it's proof that I once looked like this. :0)
And just because, here's my little munchkin rockin' her sumo wrestler hair!
