It was time. It is so hot and humid here that I always wore my hair in a ponytail or bun anyway. And the post baby growth, ugh; not pretty. My hair was long enough to donate, so I chopped it all off! This is the shortest I have ever had my hair, but it looks even shorter because it's wavy for the first time in my life! I've always had super straight hair, but between the humidity and the post baby growth coming in wavy, I have a totally new look! And it is soooo easy. Water, mousse, scrunch it up, and I'm done! Jay likes it, and since he has to look at me the most, that's all that matters! :) Here are the before and after pics:

South Padre Island

Jay's parents and brother came to visit us this weekend, so we made a trip out to South Padre Island. It was pouring rain on the way, and it got so bad we almost turned around. Yesterday the Rio Grande Valley got more than 3 inches of rain in about 3 hours, so we didn't want to get stuck in that madness again! We decided to continue on since Rod hadn't seen the island yet. We stopped for lunch at a restaurant right on the beach, and by the time we were done, the rain had stopped, so we headed to one of the public beach entrances. Billy absolutely LOVED the water. He went straight in and kept laughing and falling over every time a tiny wave would hit him, yet he shook my hand away when I tried to steady him. He didn't seem to mind the salt water at all, even when he went completely under (quite a few times). We definitely need to go back again soon, and take advantage of living so close to a beach.
