Snapshots in time.....

Brooklyn came back this week, after a week of October break.
I was sitting at the kitchen table paying bills and I happened to look up.
Imagine my shock, dismay and "awwwww how sweet" feelings
when I saw the girls in this position.

I tell you, if they're not screaming their faces off at eachother,
kicking, fighting, scratching or crying.
They're just adorable best friends.

Thank goodness for these happy little moments of love to remind us
that happy can prevail.


I gots my hair did today....and that always makes me feel better and happier.  Fresh dark color, smooth look, hooray!  I'll feel good for at least 2 days, that should tide me over until opening night.  Speaking of, we added costumes and makeup last night...HOORAY!  It is AMAZING how much that adds to a show.  The cast came alive, and most everything looked really beautiful.  Now, if ONLY my set would be finished.  I won't lie when I say I'm a bit terrified.  But, I fully expect a theatre miracle, 'cause they ALWAYS happen.


And I leave you with this charmer of Maggie.  This is how I found her the other morning watching her "kids shows"(note the rubberbands on her wrist.  They're her hair ties, but she calls them her silly bands and is literally never without a couple on her arm).  This girl is nothing if not "FULL OF IT."

Peace and love,

Allyson

Loving the hair. And how do you manage good self-portraits? Can't manage them.

i think you should stick with the hairdo from the other day. it was MUCH more entertaining ;) glad to see that things are a bit calmer (at least on top of your head!) but that maggie is still rockin' the sass and flair!

I think Brooklyn and Maggie look like they could be sisters. Such a cute picture. Like the hair! And might I add that your face is looking rather thin these days! I noticed it in this picture and a couple others from previous posts. Good luck with Oliver! I don't know if I can make it crazy crazy week next week, but I will try! Enjoy your reunion (you are still going aren't you) can't wait to hear stories.

I just love the days I get my hair did. I've even offered my hair dresser free rent if he will just live with me and do my hair every day. He has too much dignity to take me up on that offer, but I keep making it.
