  1. Haha! Shave your head! I am contemplating this very thing since I’m cutting my dreads off in August. My hubs says no, but I am oh so tempted. I think I may steal this idea for my bloggity blog as well!

    • Haha yeah, Chris has vetoed that bucket list item for me too…but I still want to! Good luck getting rid of the dreads! How long have you had them??
