St. Baldrick’s hair chopping update!

It’s now been 15 days since I launched my fundraiser for St. Baldricks, and I’m more than 20% of the way to my goal. I’ve raised a whopping $1,155! That’s actually 23% of the way! Wow!

It also means I’m up to a chin-length cut.

Which, I mean, is fine. I’ve had chin length cuts in recent history. This doesn’t scare me. Four years ago:

I mean, it was that short when I ran the London Marathon in 2002! (Okay, that wasn’t necessary, I just like to brag.)

So yeah, no, I’m not scared about the haircut yet. You wanna scare me? Donate a bunch so I have to go really short again. This is what I picture looking like if I get to, say, $3,000:

I mean, I won’t be getting a perm so I suppose it’s unlikely. Also I don’t know where that bolo tie is.

Or $4,000:

Well, actually that’s kinda cute.

So let’s do it! Let’s get to $5,000 so I can look even cuter than that ^ while also helping raise a ton of money for childhood cancer research!

It’s super easy to donate – just go here!

Happy Mardi Gras! And also Happy Birthday to my brother (50!!!) and Kiki (a lady never tells. But she’s the same age as me now.) Obviously I didn’t take this picture, but while we were out at the parades, the boys were having fun taking pictures of me with the butterfly headpiece that was too heavy for me to wear. Whatever keeps them occupied. Look how well my gray is growing in! 😅

All of the clothes are out of my teeny tiny closet and in my new wardrobe. Final reveal of that will be soon – but I need to get the doors put on. For now, my shoes have a nice rack at the bottom of the closet, and my best fabrics have a new home. The hanging fabric shelves are a temporary solution – hope one day to get real shelves put in.

What I should be posting is a picture of the Mardi Gras dress I made, but I want to write up a whole post about how I made it, so I’ll save it. Instead, I’ll post a pic of my friend Jenn’s cousin who was the king of Morpheus!

The best part about Mondays. I walk the boys to the bus stop, then walk around the neighborhood to get to the coffee shop where I get, well, tea. And then admire my sparkly nails and the Mardi Gras decorations people have up on the way home. (Okay, that might only be this Monday.)
