Hair we go again....again

Almost two years ago {I can't believe it's been that long!} I posted about my hair saga.
Surprise, surprise I am back to where I started. 
Both with the highlighting and length situation.
It's basically a never ending battle. 
And I do realize that my life is going pretty darn well if this is my battle. 
Thinking about it, I realize this is a completely vain post, but it's a girl problem and I could use some advice.

The status of my hair typically revolves around two things:
1. Money

2. My age

I understand the suspense of my current hair situation might kill you, but instead of posting the same story/pictures head on over to that post first.

Then {if the suspense didn't kill you} come back here so you can hear my drawn out complaints this time around. 

I really do like having long hair. 
My pregnancy really helped speed up the long dreaded grow out process. 
The problem I always have with long hair is looking younger than I am. 
Especially now that I have a baby, I really don't like going out and having people think I am a teen mom. 
People can be really rude with their looks and it's not appreciated.
I feel like I want to wear a shirt that says "I am 24 and married. Stop with the looks!!!"

Also, my sister is 14- TEN YEARS YOUNGER than me- when we go out people think we are the same age! 
This is a problem. 

We went to a Zumba class the other night and the older ladies kept making comments about how young we were and how we wouldn't understand what it's like to have a small bladder and make it through the jumping songs without the need to pee etc because they've all had kids etc etc
Ummmmmm I had 8 weeks ago!!!! 
I am flattered that they couldn't tell and I was too shy to say anything, so I just let it be.
And by "let it be" I mean make snarky remarks in my head.

Then last night put me over the edge when my Grammie told me that her friend was looking at a picture of our family and thought that I was Ali's YOUNGER sister. 

So the time has come. 
I was waiting until I lost some more weight because I know I am not going to look how I did before with short hair. 
You know, the whole best-shape-of-your-life-for-your-wedding-then-get-married-eat-like-your-husband-and-gain-twenty-pounds thing. 
Oh, you don't know about that? 
Yeah, I don't either....ahem.

So I've had a few styles and colors and body shapes {both hair and actual body}. 
I'm not 100% sure what look I will go for.
I'm kind of scared.
Do I realllly want it short again?
I think I do. 

I don't want to go as drastic as last time, 
{Look how different A looks in 3 years!}

but really, the shoulder length hair makes me look the youngest. 
I wish I could do this style
But my hair is too thick and I think I will still look young. 
So I think I will have to go a little past my chin. 

Now the decision is what style??
I know this is really awkward to have so many pictures of just me...but I need some advice and as I'm sure you all know- you go into the salon expecting to look like Jennifer Aniston and come out looking like...yourself. GASP. Disappointment every single time. So this is my hair, this is the different styles I've had {ignore the color} 

What do you think??
