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.
-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
-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!
