  • I shed a few tears at the door 🙁
  • I collect myself, get into the car, and drive into DC for a much needed haircut & color.
  • After two and a half hours, my hair looks normal again 🙂
  • I drive back to Alexandria, hit the store for some dinner ingredients, and pick up M.

And now… here I am… blogging away as I listen to my daughter play in her crib instead of taking a nap….

At least she had fun on her first day 🙂

So how’s your day going??

I’ll see you all this evening with a fun recipe 🙂

    Aw, what a sweet dress. Sounds like a crazy morning. It is always weird to go quickly in the morning and then calm in the afternoon. I hope it ended up being a good day.
