Scenes from The Weekend...




Whew it was a busy one... What is it with this December? I've commiserated with several friends, and we all agree that this year feels somehow more rushed and crazed, or maybe our kiddos are just getting older, resulting in more to do.

Either way, for us, it's been (for lack of a more elegant term) cuckoo, and this weekend was the crescendo of cuckoo with birthday parties and Christmas parties and projects and errands and the like... We're all so fried that the entire family fell asleep on the couch at 8:30 Friday while we were watching "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" (I may have actually fallen asleep at 8:15).

But there's light at the end of the tunnel... just one more week before the girl's much needed winter break and some work vacation and just general laying low and enjoying the holidays. We're counting the days.

Ok now for these photos...I have to share what was (for me) the highlight of the weekend. My friends Sara and Bindu of the utterly fantastic CHAKRA asked me if I would style and shoot their Spring line on Sunday. I have to say, I was a bit of a wreck, given that I've never really done either of those things, but it was a complete and utter blast. The girlies were fantastic and the clothes were gorgeous, so it made my job easy.

So, so fun.







Oh P.S. -- I got bangs...full-on, all-in bangs. I'm still getting used to them, but they're slowly growing on me. Millie on the other hand, well...hates them. The first words out of her mouth after laying eyes on them was, "Why is your hair so crazy?"

Gotta love that kid.

You brave girl both for the styling \ shooting (looks great) and the fringe (well thats what we call bangs here) - lovely a deep and thick,

My son is very bossy and specific about my hair too. Won't let me wear it up or back.. ...

The bangs look great. You got the perfect amount. Don't you love how they look with a pony tail? When I came home with bangs (and a professional blow dry) a while ago, I had to pour water on them to make my daughter stop crying. Kids!!!

Love the bangs but then I'm a bangs kind of girl! I think they instantly make you look younger (and who doesn't want that!)

Alice Q. Foodie said...

Love the bangs! We are deliberately keeping things really low key this year - even going out of town for the actual holiday (to Big Sur & SF - yay!) I'm loving it so far, I have to say. Even without kids, things can get crazy this time of year! xoxo

tammy said...

the styling and shooting results look great! and your hair is fabulous. love the bangs.

Gina said...

What lovely pictures of the girls. Love your bangs. Your hair really looks fantastic. I personally would love a great photo of your hair or the inspiration photo for it so I can copy you & show my hair stylist. She keeps giving me wimpy side bangs that just aren't what I want.

naomi said...
