Eeeez mah beeeerrrthday!

And okay. I totally baked a chocolate pie and was so excited to share it with you today, buuuut yeaaaaaah. My meringue was more like ma-WRONG and my pie filling was more like puddin’. Which actually worked out because I found two small garden trowels in the garage, duct taped them to my wrists and pretty much got all Edward Shovel Hands on it.

So, I’m gonna take the day off to do fun bertnday things like yoga, a nice lunch, a long massage and a cozy dinner. But before I go, I have a very serious question to ask you. Something that could change the course of my 36th year of livage. Something that’s been brewing and burning so deeply in my soul, and I simply can’t hold it in any longer because of the weight it holds.

Here goes…

Which old hairstyle of mine should I bring back? You know you want to see me in a mullet. Just say it.

    Maybe I'm seeing things (entirely possible), but I think I really like the top-of-head-slightly-to-the-side ponytail action in the bottom picture. I'm pretty sure I have been there, done that! Happy birthday, and have a great day!

    I've looked like Little Orphan Annie my entire life, so don't even talk to me about bad hair styles! Happy Birthday, Bev! Somebody should be baking you a pie, silly.

    Haaappy Birthday! I, for one, really think you should bring back the mullet. You'll set trends left and right! Love your blog, your writing makes me laugh!

    I like the side ponytail! I thought you were in your mid-20's; surely you jest!

    Happy birthday!!!
  43. Kari@Loaves and Dishes August 25, 2012 at 2:32 pm #
    Happy Birthday! I love all those hair styles, they were perfectly appropriate for the age. Having said that, the little side pony is the most non-committal, and still totally chic.
  44. Cookie and Kate August 25, 2012 at 3:50 pm #
    Hope your birthday was wonderful, Bev! Oh and I like the half-up side pony, personally.

    My son had a mullet in high school. I loved it. He cringes when he looks back now, he-he! Have a very happy birthday (and many, many more). Keep writing...

    Happy slightly belated birthday. And the side ponytail a la Kimmie from Full House. That's my fave.
