Today was crazy hair day at E’s school. Naturally, O wanted to participate:
When I dropped E off I noticed all the other kids’ crazy ‘dos and realized that some of them looked how my hair looks all the time. EVERY day is crazy hair day for me. It’s part straight, part wavy and part kinky-curly, especially the under layers near my neck. It is completely out of control.
In my mid-twenties I would spend an hour blow-drying and straight-ironing it EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
As a kid I had no clue that you weren’t supposed to brush curly hair, so I walked around looking like this:
These days it doesn’t seem to matter what kind of styling technique I use- the minute I walk outside my hair rebels and does whatever the heck it wants to anyway, so what’s the point?
Inevitably my unmanageable locks end up being scraped into a messy ponytail at some point over the course of the day:
I’m really low-maintenance when it comes to make-up and the same is definitely true for my hair. I just can’t be bothered.
How much time do you spend on your hair every morning?
I need help.
Enough hair talk- how about a little link love? Stuff I like from around the Internets, in no particular order:
- Adorable 1st birthday parties!
- Veggie Terrain, my latest blog obsession. This looks ridiculous.
- This awesome painting by my long-time friend, J
- This and this, both of which I plan on making this weekend
- This Annoying Orange video. Are you familiar with the Annoying Orange? O is obsessed and sings this song at least 46 times a day. (My personal fave is Lady Pasta.)
- This hilarious post about homemade Halloween costumes- man, can I ever relate…
Speaking of Halloween, what are you and/or your kids dressing up as this year? I haven’t dressed up in ages but am finally participating in the festivities this year! I have an especially tragic costume planned for a big party this Saturday, and you’ll just have to wait and see how it all goes down. I will say that neon green legwarmers are involved. :D Pictures forthcoming! The last time I dressed up was in 2005 when I was pregnant with E- I was a nun. A pregnant nun. Yeah.
This year O is going to be The Hulk and E is a freaky zombie dude. Lets take a look back at their costumes from the past four years:
(before O was born)
I guess I made E wear the same costume two years in a row. That is both awesome (saves $!) and awful (again!?) at the same time. That picture of O as an elephant KILLS me!
As a kid I remember dressing up as a “punk rocker” many times. What a badass. What was your favorite costume growing up?
Happy Wednesday! Halloween is only a week away. :D
