The magnitude of his ‘fro

Hello friends! I hope everyone just had a great weekend. I know we certainly did–our friends Joe and Steph went and got hitched (I’ve got some cute pictures of them smooching here from our New Years party back in January). The wedding was beautiful, Steph looked beautiful, I cried, etc. We spent some time with my in-laws. We went and saw the new Harry Potter movie with my mother-in-law Sara (a die-hard HP fan). Altogether, events converged to make for a stellar time.

For today’s visual entertainment factor, as promised on Friday, I have some pictures to share from our deep past that showcase my husband’s abundant hair.

Yes, I married a white guy with a ‘fro.

Wow. I marvel.

These pictures are from 2004 and 2005. Such young thangs we were . . .

When he cut his hair I didn’t even recognize the guy.

Um, excuse me . . . do we know each other? Why are you looking at me in such a familiar way? And WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY HIPPIE BOYFRIEND?

The ‘fro hasn’t made an appearance for many years . . . will it ever come back? Why am I posing this question? Do I secretly want it to come back? Or am I in mortal terror of its return?

I’ll hash these issues out over a piece of chocolate. Nothing like a little sugar to shed light on this troubled and confusing world.

Happy Monday!

    And to think I just spent 20 minutes with my curling iron and an arsenal of “fine hair fixer uppers…” What a head of hair! Love the nostalgic photos of you two.

  3. Is he ever going to speak to you again after posting those photos?

    hehe I love the big hair

  5. Antes se veía gracioso…con ese estilo afro. Ahora se ve fantástico (para mi gusto)…imagino que cada look iba en consonancia con la época…y al fin y al cabo, tu miras mas allá de la apariencia…y su corazón seguirá siendo el mismo, ja!
    Simpático el post!

    Handsome, no matter how he wears his hair!! And I love the photograph at the end…. very penetrating. One good thing: perhaps your kids will have curlier hair than you girls did!!

  7. That is some amazing hair. My husband has fantastic curly hair as well and mine is stick straight. He has always kept his pretty short though in the years we’ve been together. Luckily, one of my boys scored some fabulous hair as well. :)

    Awesome…just awesome

    Wow. His fro was amazing. It actually worked for him, but I think I like him better w/o it. :)

    my brother has a big ole fro… it makes him who he is! he recently shaved his head for summer and as much as i poke fun at him, i miss it… there I said… i miss it!

    Hi hi! My boyfriend has the exact same hair! And so do I! We joke often about how curly and hairy our kids will be :)
    I can never decide what I think of his fro. It’s so cute in real life, and great to run my fingers through, but in pictures he just looks… Big headed :D

    How tall is he, by the way, if you don’t mind me asking?

      My husband’s about 5’9-5’10–I’m actually a shade taller than he is. And I agree about running the fingers through a ‘fro–that’s always fun. =)
