Still Deciding...

But I think I'm liking it....

It is a bit longer, for a short cut, than I wanted... so it just means I'll be going back in for a re-trim a bit sooner than I expected. but for now, it works.

How was your holidays? I loved all the winter fun comments on the last post. They helped me get into the mood for the cold months a little bit more, and I am ready. Right now, I am in my husband's fleece bathrobe, I have mulling spices simmering on the stove (yummy yum yum!) and all is calm, all is bright.

Our Thanksgiving was marvelous. We stayed at home, lounged around, I got a GREAT nap, and we did our own small, half-fake Thanksgiving dinner. (by fake, I mean-- Boxed stuffing, jar o' gravy, boxed potatoes, turkey breast instead of the whole bird)... And both halves, fake and un-fake, were DELICIOUS. I was super proud of my sweet potato casserole and my apple crisp. And we all three loved the pace of a gentle, small, just-us gathering. It could not have been any better.

Now, December hits. And with it, the ever-present frenzy to get things done, no matter how good my intentions are to be more prepared ahead of time. I have about nine more photo sessions to finish editing, and then I can work on MY stuff-- the things for my family, my son, my friends... Things that involve cooking, baking, sewing, gluing, assembling, etc. etc... the fun stuff.

In fact, tomorrow, I'll introduce you to a new friend of mine. He is small, and not very fancy, but I already love him. And I am hoping Noah will love him too...But that will be tomorrow.

Today, I have work to do, and a baby that is finally napping. So I am off... in my newly-short hair-still-looking-scary-from-sleep... in my husband's bathrobe... Ready to clean a bit, edit a bit, decorate a bit.... GET DOWN TO WORK.

Happy Monday!

  2. Yep, the new cut is super cute. I'm glad your Thanksgiving was nice. I wish mine was as low key. I feel like my last week was a total blur. Oh well, tis the season right! I'm looking forward to finding out about your new "friend!"

    I have a hunch who this new friend might be, but I'll just leave it at that. Merry December!

  4. um. . . I like the hair, first. And I'm glad you've settled into it. And that's SUCH a good call. Just go back a little earlier for a trim when it hits the awkward stage that haircuts inevitably do. And now I am TOTALLY curious about your new friend. . .

  5. Like I said, the hair cut is totally cute!
    And is this the friend that I offended the other day when I said he wasn't proportioned correctly? ;)

  6. I like it. It is hard to get used to a new cut sometimes. I totally missed the post about you going to NKOTB! I totally wanted to go. My sisters all went in Salt Lake, and I am bummed. How fun. Good luck shopping, and decorating. By the way, are you losing weight?

  7. Kirsti- Totally that friend. He MIGHT forgive you.

    Brit- I WISH! I think, though, it is just my selective photo choosing that always manages to make me look better than I do in real life. I seem to be holding steady, weight-wise. Oh well... Better than gaining, I suppose!! Thank you, though, for the compliment!

  9. When newly married and nowhere to go, we would do a 'half-baked' Thanksgiving dinner. I thought it was great.
