Blogiversary Blunder and Big Chop Video

* Disclaimer: My mind was racing a month ahead, when all along I thought I was behind - lol - my blogiversary isn't really until next month. Thanks to all who expressed their congratulations - let's just look at it as practice for next month (now I'm going to have to come up with a whole new video concept :o) *

On to the video introduction:

About two years ago, my stepmother had brain surgery (removing fluid) and I did her hair in two-strand twists in prep for the surgery. The surgeons cut a big patch of her hair off - ruining my twists :o( - Well, she went against my suggestion to just create a cool, new style - a Donald Trump like twist comb-over - and decided to cut all of the twists off and donate them to Locks of Love.

Her sister suggested that we support her by cutting off our hair, so she wouldn't be alone. I was hesitant at first, but I decided to do it. That's the background story - enjoy :o)
