Betty, I love the new haircut! It is sooooo cute. It's awesome that you gave to locks of love. Were you planning to do that for awhile? I have tried to grow my hair out long enough to do it, but my hair just won't grow. It tends to break off. I have a niece that was fortuanate enough to be given a wig after her chemo. It was great for her self-image. You rock!

Awwww....

Thansk for all your sweet comments! I really love my new cut, not quite sure if I'm excited about having a cut i have to do something with, but it's fun for a bit and when I get tired of it I can still throw it in a pony tail!

That's awesome Robbi! I did this once beore (about 10 years ago now) right before I started going to haiti. I cut if off then to about an inch long all over!!! Not quite so drastic this time! LOL

Shakes-- that's a really chic cut, m'dear! Looks fabulous on you! I totally can't wait to see this in person. I may not be able to help reaching out and foofing your hair.

Are the Garzas the folks who took Momma Cat? Then they (and you!) are having a major year of good karma in the bank!

Congratulations to Shakes and the Garzas!

Shakes, I love your new cut! And what a wonderful gift...I've wanted to do the same for years, but I can't stand long hair! You go girl!

Betty I love the cut and you deserved it after a long grow season! Amazing! I had a few friends that did this too. So cool

Suz said...

B-I tried to see this post the day it went up too, and like Robbie, could not see it. I just wandered over today and saw it!

OMG!!! Toooo cooool!!!

Love the cut, love the gift. Special, indeed.

I love your new look, and you have such a big heart. I am happy to know you!

shakenbsis said...

omg! you guys are sooo much fun...

I'm really not that good or kind, (makes me blush a little to read all these compliments) BUT i can grow hair!! LOL

I can't give blood these days on account of being in Haiti but my hair grows pretty quick and it's good for a laugh to see the shocked faces when I whack it off!! If it wasn't so much FUN I probably wouldn't bother! LOL

Mary, the Garzas aren't Momma's family, but they do live down the street from where I found her and her kitties. (They fell in love with her and her brood too.) Just really good friends I am lucky to have... ;)

lawgirl said...

Your hair looks great. Locks for love is a great cause, and you are a sweetie for doing that!

Captain Morgan said...

It's so wonderful you did this! It's one of the greatest gifts you can ever give someone. I'm so proud of you :)

Michelle said...

Love the cut! I know I saw it in person, but I haven't been to your blog in a while. I suck. LOL.

I always wanted to do this, but my hair just doesn't grow that long. I don't know if it is genetics or what, but it gets to a certain point and just doesn't grow anymore. Weird, right?
