World's Greatest Shave - One Year On

This is what I look like one year after shaving my head. My hair has been cut three or four times, to give it a decent shape. After Summer, my lighter streaks have finally come back. Whether or not I like it depends on the day. I don't regret it, and might consider doing it again in the future, but growing my hair back has been hard, slow and annoying. I'm hopeful that by next Summer it will be long enough to tie back so I can get it off my face and neck!

Coke Layers with Cocoa Buttercream

Recipes from Baked In America. I love that book, but one day I have to make a cake I don't have to take anywhere, so I can actually use all the layers, and not have a whole 'leftover' cake! This one was baked for Nephew1's 9th birthday.
