Hair (before & after) and almost 23 weeks’ belly

I had a couple requests for pics from my recent haircut this weekend, so here ya go!

This one is a “before” shot – I actually just cropped my head out of a family pic taken at Ava’s birthday party almost a month ago. It’s not totally recent, but it gives you a good idea that my hair was getting long-ish and was really in need of a trim at the very least.

This is a side view of the new hair. I didn’t style it at all today, just let it air dry. That’s my kind of hairstyle though – wash and go.

Here’s a front view with it tucked behind my ears, which is how it usually ends up. ;)

I think it’s a pretty decent cut, especially for just going to *cough, cough* Great Clips. I had been going to this awesome Aveda salon for my last several haircuts, but at nearly $50 a pop, it is just too expensive. And because it was so expensive, I hadn’t been in for a cut in …hmmm…I can’t even remember how long! If I keep my style request pretty basic, they seem to do an OK job at Great Clips for $17 (including tip). So what if I had to cut off a small chunk of long hair myself when I got home? ;) At least I saved some money. hehe. Although I do miss the scalp and neck massage I got at the Aveda salon. Oooh yeah, that alone is almost worth paying the $50.

I think the shorter hair makes my face look thinner too. Which is kind of odd because I know I’ve gained like 5 lbs. in the last month so, in theory, it should look heavier. I’m not complaining!

Lastly, here’s a belly pic I took today. I’m 1 day shy of 23 weeks. :)
