Remember my Catholic School days post?  The cast of characters is back.  When I was seven, I always got to play the role of Cinderella at recess.  The following year, my mom decided to perm and cut my hair.  The girls and I had evolved into more mature games such as playing out the episodes of Charlie’s Angels.  When I inquired from one of the lovelies below, I was quickly told, “no angel has short hair and glasses, so you can play Bosley.”  I don’t remember getting my feelings hurt, I got to play the coolest character on the block.

The best part is that I’m still dear friends with these lovely ladies.  There is nothing like being able to pick up the phone with someone you’ve known for over 30 years.  And damn if they aren’t all foxes!

 

Thanks to my friend Brenda Roach Thompson for snapping Cheryl and Kate’s picture.

Recipe here.

    This is a great fall recipe (although San Diego seems to have missed the memo on Fall arrival!).

    Great pics and sweet story. Thanks for bringing these cakes over last night. I am so impressed. I love how you make things so simple, but so outrageously delicious. I have never had anything as good as this. You are just amazing. So lucky to have you as my neighbor and friend.

    I love vintage pics and those haircuts! My mom was into perming our hair too and I remember some disastrous results, lots of tears, and being called a poodle. (Would probably have preferred “Bosely”!)

    And, anything with Chai spice is a winner!

    Wizzy- Thank you sooo much! Chinese 5-spice is one of my favorite spice blends use in baking desserts. It also adds one heck-of-a-punch to chocolate cake too! XO

  26. What an adorable post!! And my goodness… we have similar “little kid” pictures. My mom made me get a Pixie cut… I remember wearing yarn over my head for days as I wanted long hair.
    LOVED Charlies Angels, and your angel friends a just as stunning, well perhaps even mores so than the real ones!! Really fun post!
