Two firsts...

I've had a couple of "firsts" lately. First of all, I cut my hair.

Okay, I'm sure you're asking yourself "is this the first time you've ever cut your hair?!". He he... No, silly!

BUT... this is the first time I've ever gotten my hair cut short.

My whole life, even when I was a kid, I've had long hair. Now, it's WAY short. Well, way short for me.

So this is the new me! What do you think?

I was SO nervous at the beauty parlor. I told my stylist that I'd never gotten it cut this short IN MY LIFE but that I wanted to do something COMPLETELY different to celebrate all the weight I'd lost. I started to go shorter but she said for me to wait and wear it for a week and then see if I really wanted it shorter.

I'm glad I didn't go shorter. I really love it. I'm having so much fun with it. I feel like an all new me!!


Now for the 2nd 1st. For the first time in my life, I went rollerblading. Now, mind you, you're talking to the lady who was deathly afraid of running just 2 years ago. Remember my fear of falling and breaking a knee or arm? I was so afraid that I'd have a heart attack or worse--die. But there I was, Monday night, rollerblading.


I felt like a kid learning how to ride my bike for the first time. I kept wobbling and jerking from fear that I'd fall. But I didn't.

What fun that was!! What a blast!!!

I've always heard the roller blading is a TOUGH workout. Well, not so much for me. You see, hubby also got a pair of roller blades and when I go with him, we go kinda slow. So I really haven't worked up a sweat yet. But he's getting the hang of it and I'm sure we'll be flying soon.

It's so much fun. I sit there all day just waiting for the work day to be over so I can go home and strap on my roller blades and go for a spin.

What fun!!!

First of all, that haircut looks great! Second of all, the fact that you can rollerblade well is so impressive to me! I could never do it. Something about there being something between my feet and the ground that's making it unstable is just too difficult for me to master.

Love your new hair cut!!!

Good luck on the rollerblades. I've tried them a few times, but I have problems with my feet and it just does NOT work for me! My ankles hurt so bad afterward, that it's not worth the attempts!

Cara you look fantastic...as for the roller blading, you are brave!!! I tried it years ago when I was in my 20's and I was horrible at it. I've never tried it since.
