Last week, I acted on a major impulse.
I had 11 inches cut off my hair.

 {Can you tell how nappy the ends are?!}

It all started over 2 years ago, when all my bffs from college with sweet haircutting skillz moved away.
Weird how that stuff happens after graduation.
I'm cheap. Like SUPER cheap. And all through college, I had my sweet awesome friends cut my hair for free. Or in exchange for baked goods. 
Until they moved away.

{Ok, it doesn't look soooo bad here}

At that point, you'd think I would have done the adult thing and found a legit place to get haircuts.
Instead, I simply went over 2 years without a haircut 'cause I didn't want to pay for it.
Cheap, so cheap.
But lately, my hair had been bothering the crap out of me.
Getting stuck in my armpits, countless dead ends, gross stringly looking, and ick. I just started to hate it.

{woof. See what I did there?! :D}

So one day after work and before I met up with J and some friends for Thai food...I found a CHEAP place and got it cut.
I can afford that!!

As the girl started talking to me and I showed her how short I wanted it,
she mentioned that it was probably enough to donate.
Really?! I didn't think it was that long. But ok!

So snip snip snip...
and 11 inches later!

My life is so much better.

{It looks a little longer here than it actually is. Probs because I was sitting down and leaning forward a bit? who knows}

Ever made a drastic impulsive decision like cutting 11 inches off your hair without telling your hubs?
Which, btdubs...he didn't notice until about 30minutes into our dinner...when I told him! Boys.
