Well, I blogged just yesterday, so not much news here yet! My shins are a wee bit stiff today from yesterday’s 3 miler. I’m aiming for another 3 tomorrow morning, though. If I get it done, I have no doubt, I’ll be a-blogging again tomorrow! LOL
I really meant to crochet more on the afghan last night. I really did! But… the temptation to take the manlets off to see Star Trek was simply too much to fight off. The oldest especially didn’t really care to see it, but he came with us anyway. And in the end, they both loved it almost as much as me! I think that says something, seeing how they’ve never seen any of the original series. ;) They are teasing me about my Spock/Sylar love now in addition to my long standing Alan Rickman love.
The Haircut of 2009
So tonight’s main event was the haircut. The youngest manlet started growing his hair long in 2006. He’s gotten a few trims here & there, but it’s been growing all this time. He had a plan, though. He decided to keep growing it until it was long enough for Locks of Love… getting it cut at the end of middle school. So, fast forward…
My stylist is absolutely fantastic. I am SO happy I found her – she changes her approach for each person. The oldest, she cuts with a shaver – he wears his hair near military short & has very course hair from his father. Me, I’ve got fine hair that is a mix of straight & wavy – but it is SO thick! I’ve got a ton of hair. Me, she razor cuts the entire thing to thin it out – it totally needs it. For the youngest, she cut partially with the shaver & partially with scissors. :) We pulled the hair back into a ponytail to get ready…
I tried to talk him into having it cut evenly while leaving as much length as possible from there. But when he shot me a Look, I said “Oh, what, no emo looking cut, is that what you’re saying then?” And this was the look I got then. Yeah, that’s my manlet calling me a smart ass with a Look.
So, without further ado… the end result:
Today’s Ravelry Search
Ok, so I tried a few variations to keep in theme with the grand event… but my rav-search-fu failed me tonight. I made do with “wonderful” because I think my manlet is exactly that! LOL ;) As always, click the picture to go right to the pattern page!
