Fat Friday

Dear Wet Polly Ponytail,
It's time for us to break up.  You've been a faithful friend these last eight weeks, making my hair look as if I really had a style.  You provided a smooth look when I was sleep deprived, emotional, rushed and couldn't muster up the effort to use a blow dryer.  I hope you know, it's me not you.  I just can't enjoy you anymore.  I need clean ends and little more style.  Your constant availability has been very much appreciated.  You've been a lifesaver.  Please don't be sad.  I'm sure there will still be mornings I'll revisit your johnny-on-the-spot availability.


P.S.  Tell your friend, Miss Baby Belly, that I'm kissing her good-bye next.  But first...a little taste of this delicious, fruity treat!

Blueberry Peach Crisp

1 c. rolled oats
1 c. flour
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter

Mix dry ingredients.  Using a pastry blender, cut in butter.  Mix well until it becomes a nice crumbly texture.  Set aside.

6-8 cups peaches, peeled and sliced
1 c. blueberries (fresh or frozen)
corn starch

To quickly peel peaches, drop in boiling water for about 30 seconds.  The skin will peel off easily.  Slice and place in large casserole dish or 9x13 pan.  Toss in blueberries.  Sprinkle the fruit with a little sugar and cornstarch.

Poor crumbly topping over fruit.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes until topping is golden brown.  Serve warm.

 A delicious fruity summer dessert. 
Oh wait a minute...
Add a scoop of yummy French Vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

Hey, I like you cute lil' pony tail! But my all time favorite Londa-hair-cut is the one you have in the picture of you and Cody in the sidebar. Loved that!

Yummy recipe!

HA! You crack me up girl. I could have written that post. Only not as as funny or smart and witty. ;)

Blessings sweet Daughter of the King!

Haha! You're so cute, Londa! I love your pony! I thought it made you look sleek and chic. But, whatever! :) I liked your hair a lot yesterday too. As long as you will still bring back the pony tail once in a while... :)

Oh, you crack me up! You can TOTALLY pull off the pony! You were rocking it. BUT your hair did look fabulous yesterday. So fresh and sassy and flowy and Per.Fect. (you jerk) And now that you're officially broken up with Polly-Pony and now that I'm back to work, I'll likely be spending more time with your ex.

I don't think it matters how you wear your hair, it always looks cute. I have no excuse, I still try to pull off the Polly-Pony. That looks like a yummy dessert.

What? The slicked back, didn't-do-my-hair look isn't the height of fashion? *Sniff* And here I was thinking that as long as I did my makeup and avoided sweats I was in vogue. Bummer. And my baby belly is just beginning to get REALLY round. Well, at least I have nice friends who will love me anyway. (Uncertain Pause . . . Right?) --Jess

That dessert looks great! I may just have to try it and soon.
I am sure you look fabulous with your new cut!
