on my mind

My hair is the longest it's been since right after my wedding in 2000. A few days after returning from my honeymoon I cut it short and it's been short - at times very short - until about six months ago. The man who does my hair told me I needed to grow it out, and who am I to argue? I like what he does, and so I let him do his thing.

One of the boys came to our bed last night because of a bad dream; he ended up having an accident so I was changing our sheets at 1am. And wow do I feel it today. However did I live with sleep deprivation for years on end (our sleep troubles lasted well beyond infancy)?

Yesterday I made lemon poppyseed olive oil cakes - my first gluten free baking! - and they were enjoyed by all.

I'm taking in our car to get serviced today, so I don't know if I'll get more done than exercise and take a few pictures. Between you and me that's all I ever want to do while the boys are at school. Too bad there is so much more to do to keep a household functioning.

Missed Connections is wonderful (via Molly).

Happy Friday!

I don't know if I'm going to missed connections or making those cakes first! Last night I got my hair cut shorter--my hairdresser/friend told me I should and I do love it...now it's your length!

Your hair is very pretty! Have a wonderful weekend w/your family.

My hairdresser said the same thing a couple years ago: let it all grow out to the same length. (I'd always had short, wavy hair) I left it that way for about a year (the drawing on my webpage is as long as it got) and a couple months ago, I had her shorten it an inch because I wanted a change and the hair in my face was driving me crazy. I ended up using barrettes half the time. Besides, I think longer was too severe for someone my age. It's now off my face and I tuck the length behind my ears.

But you are young and have a beautiful color...it looks lovely the way it is.

Have a lovely weekend, Lecia!

LOVE your hair! Style, length and superb cut! Very chic! I love car service days.... they give me a brand new Mercedes to swan around in while they attend to whatever is bothering my car.

I am going to check out your recipe and the link to Molly's blog. Thanks for allowing us to comment on today's Friday post. Have a great weekend, dear. xoxo

Well if I had as much hair as you do, I would let it grow, too! I still miss having my super-long hair, but unfortunately it thined out after college and it will never be the same again.

Your hair is great like this Lecia, and these portraits are really lovely.
I make some lemon & poppy seed scones (half rice flour and half wheat) that I really like, I'll check out the gluten free cakes!

Your hair is fantastic, and I can't wait to try these cakes. It is too bad that stuff can't just get magically done. I am also feeling sleep deprived. One of my boys woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep until way after midnight.

I like your hair the length it is. Hope you all have a great weekend.

A Day That is Dessert said...

Thanks about my hair!

kks: Alexi took this set - I wanted a new profile picture.

Ina: sounds as if I should leave them open on Fridays? :)

likeschocolate: I hope you get some rest soon. xo

Jessica: I'd love to see a picture of your new do.

Happy
Friday!

Hi! It's my first time visiting your blog, and I just had an Oh me too! moment. So I had to say hi :) We had 2 little girls up at 4am last night, and it affects me too, not sure how we survived on no sleep! Also, my littlest ( 2.5 )has a gluten intolerance, so I'm always curious about good recipes!
So nice to meet you! xx
