New Do Times Two

The kids and I spent a few weeks in Utah. It was a great time to catch up with family and Lila is already begging for the next trip. I took TONS of pictures and we had tons of fun. While I was there I got really daring and decided to get a haircut. I've never had highlights before, but thanks to my cousin Amber I'm loving my new hairstyle. I gave her free license to do whatever she wanted with the cut and I love it. I've given up the wet ponytail look (hopefully for good) and even bought a round brush! The kids barely recognize me! I'll post more pictures soon but thought you might like to see the new me.

This is just to give you a rough idea of how long my hair was.
This is the day before I got it cut.

and this is now...




And... I'm not the only one who got a haircut. My haircut inspired Lila to
let me cut hers for the very first time. She's quite proud of her new do too!




and now if we can just figure out what to do about Abby's hair...

I love it! Your cousin did a great job.

Yay Lila! Beth's grandma gets scissor-happy every time we visit, so she's pretty used to it by now...but it takes a lot of courage to let someone get that close to your ears with something sharp.

(And I know I already told you, but I love your haircut. It's what my hair is supposed to look like but doesn't!)

I agree with previous post, you are a hottie, Em!!! Lila's is so cute and you don't look like a Mom of three, but a cute college girl having fun! Funny, we posted about haircuts the same day, I guess its that time of year!

What super cute hair, both you and Lila. I am going to get Kay's hair cut soon. Maybe Lila can help convince her that it will be fun and isn't a scary thing.

Em, I really like the new look. I remember the first time I cut your hair. You were cute then and still now. I miss you all!

Tami said...

I really do love your hair, Em! I must admit that I was slightly scared when you said you were going to go get it chopped and highlighted, but Amber did a fantastic job! You look adorable! I can't believe what a difference it made in Lila's hair also when you trimmed it. I think that Abby is a lost cause! Love ya!

It is so cute, and I love the highlights...a whole new women. Ben and I were both shocked how long Lila's hair is.

Em,
It is so cute! You look way different, but I love it. How fun! I really need a hair cut! And, i can't believe you had never cut Lila's before! Not even a trim? Wow! It was really long. Cute kids...I'm glad you had fun on the trip.
Love, Rindi
