It's time to come clean. I'm a blog-stalker. Not a serious one, but I do it. Personally, I love to blog-stalk. I know everyone else does, too. It's fun to watch the lives of people you don't really know, or are only slightly acquainted with. I have a few people that I blog-stalk religiously. But every now and then when I find myself bored I'll just start clicking on people's links and see where it takes me. RECENTLY I clicked on a link from my SIL's blog to find that HER sister has cut her hair off and is now sporting a sassy new do. CRAP! Why did she have to go and do that?
Here's the deal. It's been a long time since I've kept my hair long. After high school graduation I took a trip to New York to see my sis, Chrysta. At that point I was listening to a lot of Sarah McLaughlin as well as punk music (blame it on my boyfriend), so getting a short haircut was going to be edgy and cool. Guess what? I fell in love with short hair and had a seriously short pixie-cut for most of college. After getting married I let it grow for a long time before axing it again when Cam was about 9 months-old. Since then it's been a roller-coaster of short, long, short, long! I just can't decide what I like the best. Not that I want to find a style and wear it for the next 20 years. No thanks. But I would like to stop feeling like I'm ALWAYS growing it out! I want to stick with something for at least a little while! So before Sophie was born I started growing out my hair and told my hair dresser that under NO circumstances was she allowed to give in to my new mom urges to cut my hair. And it's been working! My hair has gotten quite long. But I REAALLLLLYYY hate it at the moment.
So, this is where you come in. I think I'm possibly going to cut off my hair on Tuesday. Chase is all about me having short hair, so he's a vote for the yes column. But I want to see what everyone else thinks. Check out the pictures listed and tell me your thoughts!

Why did I know you were thinking about this? I vote Yes. You are adorable with short hair!

I totally vote yes. I wish I could pull off short hair and I just can't. So I have to live vicariously through you. I loved your hair in college.

P.S. I was in Hershey PA last week. I thought of you!

Alyssa said...

Anna, you're totally hot with short hair, so count that as another vote in the YES column. Apparently since you've put this to a vote, you're getting a short hair cut whether you really want one or not!!

Anyway, I think you'd look MOST fabulous with the cut in the fourth picture down from the top. It just looks like "you". Ya know?? And I, too, wish I could rock a short cut like you, but alas I cannot. My hair is just too thick, and turns into an afro with the slightest degree of humidity...I'm not into having an afro. But chop away, Anna, you'll look great:)

I deleted my last comment b/c I had a typo and that drives me nuts. I know call me a dork! :) I meant to go back and comment, but got distracted.
What I was going to say is that I like your hair short even though I have not seen you with any longer hair than today. :) I have always liked your hairstyle.
As far as the music, it is combination of both of our likes. I started the play list and then Jeff added to it. Glad you enjoy it. Enjoy your day on the couch....I am jealous!!

Pooh said...

I forgot to vote on which cut! I like #1, but #4, #5 or #6 would also be (as you now have my friend Nicole saying, since she reads all our family blogs religiously because we're so hilarious) FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!

Chi-townRawlins said...

Ooh! I'm loving the comments. #4 is also a fave of mine. So it looks like most people think I should still maintain a bit of length. Hmmm...I'm seriously considering chopping it super short. Not college short, but along those lines so it's interesting that most people are voting for a more bob-like cut.
keep voting. I'll be watching.

PaBlanchards said...

Yes, you'd look very cute. I personally like #4 and #9, which look very similar to me except for degree of stylish-messiness. But you'd be super cute with even a shorter one. So are we talking tomorrow, as in Tuesday 6/24? Can't wait to see the new 'do! I'm going on Thursday, but if she cuts of more than 1/64 of an inch, I'll cry for a week.

Steph said...

I vote for short hair. You would look totally cute.

Chi-townRawlins said...

yeah, we're talking TOMORROW! Thankfully I have the world's greatest hair dresser (my SIL, Kathleen) and she said we can just start with a little bit longer cut and move up from there. I can't wait! I'll post LOTS of pics.
Deb you always crack me up with your fear of haircuts...

Ben & Diane said...

Maybe you've already done it......cut your hair, I mean. I'm trying to catch up on blogs. To answer your question, I do feel busy AND of course, sleep deprived. But, I love having three.....so far. I think #4 but, it's really about what you would like and feel comfy in. Is this comment scatter-brained or what?

Sara Kilgore said...

Oh, yes! Cut it. You look awesome with short hair. I am a blog stalker addict as well.

Sara said...

I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only blog stalker addict here. And I'm totally with Jeni on "the shorter the better". Chop away...you'll look HOT. Can't wait to see the photos!!!

Miss you...

Chandler Family said...

ok so I want to see this super short college hair!!! I'm thinking of going brown..but am starting to chicken out! By the way I thought your hair was amazing when you cut it after Cam was born! I thought of you when I cut my hair short.

Ryan & Jessica said...

so you have obviously already cut your hair, but I just read that it was a recent affair....it looks great by the way...and you are one of a few...who can pull off that short and sassy look ....so I'd sport it and love it....
looks great!
hope your trip home was fun...it was so great to see you
