In passing, I mentioned that I was cutting off all my hair. I stuck by my vow and last Saturday the deed was done. Since Monday was the first public day of showing it off, which was the day I was shit-canned, I had started to wonder if I had Samson-ized myself. Ridiculous, I know, but hey, how many of you wore your lucky socks/underwear/charm/etc. to your RE’s? Same, but different.

So here we have me in the weeks before:




And now (I’m the one on the right…just in case you were wondering):



Ā (I really should see a specialist about the weird facial tics I’ve been having, don’t you think?)

Actually, here’s a better shot:



I have to say, the haircut makes me feel all kinds of sassafras. I’m digging it. Except in the morning since sleeping on a head full of hair paste makes me look a bit Kramer in the morning. It ain’t purty, let me tell you.


  1. I love the short do – I’m due for the same when I go back to work (another few months).
    Love it.

  2. You know, they say it takes a strong, beautiful face to be able to pull off short locks — I’m thinkin’ you nailed it.

  3. Your pictures crack me up! But the new do is super cute! I’m so jealous. I need a new look!

  4. Love it! And I have no idea what you’re talking about re: facial tics.

  5. Great cut!

  6. You look great! I love the new cut!

  7. WOW!

  8. Love. It.

  9. Love the hair!!

    Every 7 years or so, I go for the same cut. Feeing isn’t it?

  10. I love it!

    I would really love to cut my hair that short but I have such a fat face (well, that isn’t all that’s fat…).

  11. I did that once. Came home and husband said he really didn’t like short hair on “heavy women”. I should have killed him on the spot.

    Obviously you don’t have the heavy problem, cuz it looks really sassy and cute on you šŸ™‚

  12. I love it! Hope Z Girl is feeling better – but I love the hair!

  13. The short hair totally suits you! What facial tics?

  14. I love the hair! I have to say that short hair always seems more convenient to me, and then—I get it and I get that morning hair issue you mention.

    No biggie if i can always get a shower though!

  15. oooh dd you look FIIIIINE

  16. super cute!

  17. I definitely don’t think you’ve Samson-ited yourself – you look fabulous! I especially love the color.

  18. Oh. My. Gawd, Girlfrieeennnndz, you look gawhjeeeeus. ::Z-snap::

    I’m in desperate need of a haircut. I won’t go that short, but maybe the length in your “before” shot.

  19. You stole my plan woman! I was just thinking the other day that I haven’t had my hair super short in a long time and should go get it chopped off.

    Now I will have to come up with something different, Damn you DD. šŸ˜‰

    It looks great. Is it easy to fix? If you want to can you just add more paste in the morning without doing a full blown wash? Just trying to save time for myself in the am now that the girl has decided she should get up with me at 5:00 am instead of sleeping in until 6:15 like before. šŸ˜‰

    Hope the family is feeling better and really, facial tic? I thought that was normal. Kidding! I have that problem too, hence little to no pictures of me, if I can help it.

  20. Whoa, it looks freaking awesome!

  21. I love the new ‘do. It’s funky!

  22. Very sassy! I like it!

  23. I totally love it!!

  24. I LOVE it. *sigh* I miss having short hair… but I can’t carry it off with multiple chins. Maybe if I can slim the number down to one or two I can manage a short ‘do again.

    You look FABULOUS, darlin’.


  25. Love, love, love it.

  26. Lovely new hair DD!

  27. lmao @ the “fat” and “chin” comments!! I’m SOOO in that boat, but I love having short hair anyway!!

    However, in looking at YOU with your fab short hair and AWESOME color, I will probably grow it out enough to look like “cousin it” and hide my face!!

    Looking super fab!!

  28. Cute, cute, cute! Mine was that short this summer, now I’m growing it out a little and somehow got stuck in a Rick Springfield-from-the-80s bi-level phase…

    Hope Zgirl is feeling better!

  29. Lovin the new cut! (You are just way to cute! I am so jealous!)

  30. i love the new ‘do. love love love it. you look all kinds of sassy — which you obviously are anyway, but the look just emphasizes.
    think of it not as de-samsonizing yourself, but maybe as coming into yourself. a too-good-for-them kinda self. a new self to head to new places. as soon as the kids are well.

  31. I love it! You look ten kinds of awesome.

  32. You look mahvelous!

  33. Me likey!!

    But you do know that I’m biased on account of I did something very similar :), Two kids = no hair. Easy math!



  34. Your haircut is AWESOME!! It really suits you and is so funky!

  35. Oh, you can so do short hair! Well done.

    I had hair similar to that last in the sixth grade. It’s not for me. But it really highlights your eyes!

  36. Oh bloody hell DD, stop scaring me! I’m eating my breakfast, don’t ya know!


  37. OH, that’s better, like that look better and the smile that goes with it, PHEW!

  38. I like the new hair, and I hope that it has nothing to do with your less than stellar karma lately!!

  39. I just find it hard to believe that it’s the same person in both picture no 2 and pic no 3. there’s something about that facial tic…

    I love the short haircut!

  40. Cute!


  42. Very pretty!

  43. You look great and I can’t believe how big your babies are getting. They look so cute together too.
