Curl Up and Dry


Before Barfpocalypse, we still had our Halloween decorations up, had some gorgeous 70 degree days, and I decided to dress like Ellen Degeneres.


In other news, I also have realized in the last year that my hair is SO much easier to deal with if I just let it do what it wants to do (be curly). What a revelation. If we ever get to go to Europe again, no more messing with stupid converters - I can just let it dry on its own and go.


Of course, in the damp Irish climate, this means my hair would possibly NEVER be dry for the length of our stay. Or I would have to get up at 3 a.m., wash it and give it a chance to dry before we leave for the day.


This does not sound like the most relaxing use of a vacation, no? Of course, if we were there for a wedding, chances are at 3 a.m., I would still be awake for the festivities. Oh, who am I kidding - I couldn't hang with the Irish grannies the last time I was there for a wedding. I had to leave the party at midnight to go to bed. Tom rolled in at 6 a.m. the next morning. I don't know why I'm even discussing it - I don't foresee a European vacation in the near future with the kiddos. Sigh. Maybe someday we'll make it over again.

Great outfit. It's so edgy and shouts that you're ready to rock and roll. The vest is lovely too. Sparkly and eye catching.

That's what your hair does naturally? JELLUS. :) Both my husband and I spent time in Europe before we met and would love to go back but, yeah. With the expanding of our family to 5 it's going to be a while.

Sheree - here's hoping you get back to Europe sooner rather than later. I miss it.

Carla - thank you so much!!

Jenn - it's not TOTALLY this, but close. I threw in a few curls just on the top layer because it never seems to curl quite as much as the under-layers do. It also just depends on the day, and what my hair wants to do. And also? I feel your pain on having to wait on vacations. Blargh.

Suzanne - Oh, I'm dancing, all right. Just imagine me doing the robot, and you have it.
