The new Carl?

Before




After 11 years, 2 months, the beard is gone. I've been threatening to do this for some time now, and Jen kept saying ... well, she said No. If nothing else, that strengthened my resolve to do this. She liked the beard, and didn't want me to shave it off. Recently, she at least compromised with a goatee, but that's because I was threatening to shave the hair on my head at that point. The things I do to lose weight...

I at least waited until after Valentine's Day for this! I'm not sure how long I will go without a beard, but I know it'll at least be through March 13 when we have an all-hand's meeting at work. Not too many people there remember me without a beard, so I thought I'd remind them. =)

In other news, we now have our Chicago plane tickets via our credit card points. Waiting for a call back from the place we want to stay at to book those reservations. Things are coming together...

Oh man would that be epic. I'd have to pay for an extra seat on the flight back because I'd eat too much. =)

Nice goat. I do that every so often...but not recently.

In a recent post you asked for suggestions of places to visit in Chicago. If I were to visit there, I would go straight to The Moody Church so I could hear Dr. Erwin Lutzer. ...but that's just me.

Whoa! That's a long time of having a beard! Haha, I get bored of hairstyles so quickly and must change them all the time. XD Anywho, I like the new goatee!

Well that was a resounding shrug.
