LTLYM and My Bag

LTLYM: #33: Braid someone's hair.

I've never, ever been able to french braid hair.  Ever since I was little, I was amazed when mothers of my friends would braid their hair into beautiful plaits and make it look so easy!  

I braided Em's hair like this the other night, and I think it turned out really well!  Her hair is super thick, and I actually got two hand cramps while doing the braids!  (Kristen = a wimp!)

PS. Em would like me to let everyone know that she was puffing out her cheeks when I took this photo, as in "I'm exasperated with this art homework!"

I've been meaning
 to do this for awhile, but never got around to it--

In My Bag

I actually don't usually carry a purse, but yesterday I had a doctors appointment and had way too much to carry in my coat pockets, so I grabbed the purse I use in times like those (and in the summer when I don't wear a big coat with a million pockets).  The contents:

-Playing cards (for the waiting room for Tri-Peaks Solitaire, my new obsession)
-Chicken Soup for the Soul - The Cancer Book.  Signed and sent to me by a wonderful lady who is an NB mom in North Carolina.  It's for my mom, so I'm going to take it to her next time I go home.
-Or.bit Gum
-Prescription bags from last summer (!?)
-Pen from the restaurant I used to work at
-Bracelet from PACAA
-Green paper clip
-My wallet that is one of my prized possessions
-Pocket Sudoku
-Earrings my uncle gave me for Christmas
-A pink Elephant that, when stood up, holds rings on its trunk.  My mom got it for me as a present.  :-)

There you have it!

I can't braid either, never learned and my hair has always been too short.

What random things in your purse! I'll have to take a picture of mine soon :)

And were they your cousin's birthday ball photos? It is such a fun event!

I'm impressed that you can fit what you need in a purse. I don't like to carry a purse either, so I use my minivan as my purse.
