Weekend Recap - The BIG CUT!!!

The SLPS household has been full of excitement since Thursday!  Lallie was out of school for a couple of days, so we had Mommy/Daughter Days with "no boys allowed!"

Thursday, we went and bought Lallie's new dance clothes, shoes and she picked out a dance bag.  She was a little shy in the store, so I didn't get any pictures, but trust me...she's awfully darn cute!  ;)
We then went out to lunch and later, visited our friends Aidan and Lauren for a little playtime.

 

Friday was a very big day for me Lallie.  Lallie had finally had enough of her hair (meaning Mommy finally worked up the nerve to cut her hair) so off we trekked to the salon to prepare for her four inch cut.
Yep.  Four inches.
Mommy Lallie cried quite a bit.  She was scared of the scissors, chair, hairdresser etc., etc.  
I held her in my lap while the hairdresser loudly sawed off Lallie's beautiful hair with a horribly mean face with red eyes!  I mean really....this hairdresser (really, her name is Karen and she's great, she's my hairdresser).  But this day...Karen was just ruthless as she hacked and hacked at Lallie's hair.
Okay - she didn't hack...but it was close!

After the nightmare was over, Lallie was just fine.
All in all, it was a good thing.  Her hair is no longer constantly in her face (stuck in her armpits, her shirt, her eyes, her nose....you name it).  And it looks much healthier overall.

(I know she's wearing this dress AGAIN but I just love it, it's adorable on Lallie, and I plan on having her wear it completely out!  Thanks Auntshleigh...and yes for those of you spell checkers...I spelled the name right!)  :-)

AFTER:
 

Mommy Lallie was such a big girl, that she mommy, was rewarded with sorbet at Kilwin's, and then the park, after the big cut.



 We also stopped by my favorite shop for a little browsing.  I think the large floppy hat is in Lallie's future!  She loved this hat.  I loved it too and think I will be going back to get it in the future.  It was $28.00!

Saturday and Sunday were spent shopping and spending time with just the SLPS family.  We had a great weekend and hope you did too!

Happy Monday Y'all!

    Now that hat. Awesome. You could use that thing as an umbrella, it's perfect.
    Have a great day.

  4. Good for you to get 4 inches off of Lallie's hair. I know how badly you didn't want to do it, but it looks great. It's just enough for both Mom and Daughter to be happy.
    That hat is a must have for both of you too!
