To Snip or to Parsnip??

I have approximately 3 hours until my hair appointment. 
I just can't decide rather I want to cut my hair a little shorter or grow it out longer.. I have this controversy every time my hair appointment rolls around. I love all the short hair styles but something about the fact that I wear my hair in a ponytail almost every day makes me decide against it. Lets face it, as a mom, there is no time for me to deep condition, brush, blow-dry, style, flat-iron, pomade, and hairspray my hair.. let alone be in the shower longer then 2.2 minutes. 
*sigh.. to snip for style? or not to snip?
I think for now.. I'll decide over a plate of parsnip.. fries.
Parsnip fries are similar to Rutabaga fries.

  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • cut the top and end off the parsnip 
  • Peel the parsnip 
  • Cut into shape of fries
  • Spray pan with canola oil and spread the fries out and spray them with canola oil or olive oil.

  • Sprinkle with your favorite seasonings (I used Mrs. Dash)
  • Place in oven for 15 minutes
  • Turn and back for 15 more minutes and continue until desired softness is achieved. It took me about 3 turns. 

These are a perfect side to any sandwich.

To Parsnip... is always a good decision

  1. You can totally pull off the shaggy bob, but, of course, you've made your decision by now.

    My hair dresser had an intervention with me and cut off my ponytail. I'm totally use to my shorter hair now and growing out my bangs (for the first time since 7th grade) was totally the right move. Sometimes it's best to leave it in their hands. :)
