The Haircut of 2009

Running

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

Knitting

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:


Oh no. Oh no, no. I think I should have his phone service shut off, 'cuz that phone is gonna be ringing soon, I think.

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!

      I’d love to take credit for it, but honestly? That is simply a part of who he is – he was born like that! He has *always* put others first. Only one cookie left? He would offer it to his brother first – and he’s done that since he was a toddler. I never had to have the “you need to learn to share” talk with him. :)
