I haven’t been on since Wednesday, and I won’t really be back till tomorrow. Needed to catch up on sleep, life. I’m at a quilting retreat with my mom and aunt, and I’d hoped to get some blogging about my trip in. But my netbook crashed! No photo access, and my beloved iPad doesn’t quite cut it. Off to sew, back tomorrow!

I’m pretty sure this isn’t what most people have in mind when they see “Las Vegas Shopping,” but I can’t help myself.

The Dulce de Leche Brioche was out of this world.

Other hair musings: Happy Haircut Day! (2008), New Haircut (2009), Today Was a Good Day (2010).

I think I’ve finally broken free of my haircut fears after years of terrible attacks on my curly head. Now I can’t wait to get them, and I’m slowly moving closer to getting them more often. It used to be every 2 years, then about a year and a half, then 11 or so months, now as of my haircut yesterday it’s 10 months.
