Wonderful Weekend Ahead, and new hair!

Let the festivities begin!  Mr P and I have a little vacation, family reunion, and birthday all in one weekend ahead of us!  We are going to Florida to visit BOTH of my parents, BOTH of my grandparents, and see my brother, his fiance, and nephew who's turning ONE :D  Mr P and I are just a little bit excited about this trip....

How shall we get ready might you ask?  Give each other haircuts of course!  I have been asking Mr P to cut my hair for a very long time (like since the first month that we were dating over 3 years ago)  but his excuse has always been "if I had better shears, then I would cut your hair."

Well today he went to Ricky's and bought just ok shears and finally gave in.  Why?  Because after I chopped off all of my hair, I let it go way... too... long... and I was getting a mullet!  It was awful!  I was so self conscious about it, but good hair salons around here are just so expensive :(

I never hesitated when I told him I wanted him to cut my hair, because A.) it was long, and a real stylist could always fix it but just cutting it shorter, and B.)  I knew he would say no.  But when he finally gave in, I started to get nervous.  But, I didn't get really nervous until I sat down on a chair in the bathroom and he put the cape on me.  Keep in mind I only asked because the mullet was getting out of hand, and I just wanted the back chopped off.  The first cut looked like it was 2 inches long!!  Where did that come from?  I didn't know the back of my hair was even that long!  I guess my mullet was worse than I thought.  Then he just kept chopping, and chopping, and chopping..... "Babe?  Are you cutting of just the mullet or doing my whole head?" "Um, I guess I'm doing your whole head."  (...well doesn't that sound promising).  I tried to not look in the mirror, but the first time I looked up I looked like a 5-year-old Asian girl (you know what I'm talking about).

But, Mr P pulled through, and gave me a haircut even better than my previous $60 haircut!  He's amazing.

I have cut his hair ever since he moved out here over a year ago, so that's nothing new.

Now all that needs to be done is for Mr P to do my toes ;)  He does them better than I can anyways!!

Cheers to a great weekend ahead!  How can we not be excited when we get to see this face all weekend!?

thanks! it does help that he had formal training in it... even though it was over 10 years ago!! (wait.. 10 years!? he's getting old! haha)

the scary thing is that he lets ME cut HIS hair and i have NO training other than practicing on his hair! haha
