Haircut story and Low Fat Blueberry Scones

If you haven't signed up for my giveaway and you need some business cards, you can find all the details here. Here's a picture of me with my new haircut. I'm still having trouble styling. I'm trying to go with a curly look. Let me know what you think. So far I'm really lovin the bangs. They're just the right length.

The story of someone getting a haircut.

Women’s version:

Woman2: Oh! You got a haircut! That’s so cute!

Woman1: Do you think so? I wasn’t sure when she gave me the mirror. I mean, you don’t think it’s too fluffy looking?

Woman2: Oh God no! No, it’s perfect. I’d love to get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too wide. I’m pretty much stuck with this stuff I think.

Woman1: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you could easily get one of those layer cuts – that would look so cute I think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent my long neck.

Woman2: Oh – that’s funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.

Woman1: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms – see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to fit me so much easier.

Men’s version:

Man2: Haircut?

Man1: Yeah.

I found this recipe in the April Parents magazine and had to give it a try. These are so easy to make and in the magazine it shows how to bake em up with your little ones. I haven't made a scone with oil before, but these have a great texture and the blueberries just burst when you eat them, yum!

Low Fat Blueberry Scones

1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup low fat milk (I had to use 2 more tablespoons)
3 tablespoons oil
1 egg
3/4 cup blueberries (I used frozen)


1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

In a bowl whisk the dry ingredients. In another bowl measure the egg, milk and oil and whisk. Add the blueberries to the dry ingredients and toss to cover with flour. Mix in the wet ingredients.

On a floured surface scoop out the dough and pat it into a circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Bake for 20 minutes. Drizzle with glaze.


In a small bowl whisk the glaze ingredients.

LOVE the hair...those bangs are awesome. I honestly think it makes you look younger.

And I love you for posting this recipe. I can't wait to make it. Now I just have to find some blueberries which are kind of out of season now.
