Silly Fun Hair, Part I

Yesterday I decided to push back dinner by a couple hours and go for a run on my treadmill instead. Not a terrific run- I got a stitch in my side that didn't subside until after the first mile, and then not even completely. I cut it short at 3 miles, then went for a walk outside- a little cool for a tank top and shorts, but the fresh air did me good. Anyway, I since I took a shower so late I knew I'd skip it in the morning (aaahhhh!). Then when I was done reading (The Golem's Eye by Jonathan Stroud), I noticed my hair was all but completely dry! Which got me to thinking about how my mom used to put my hair up in foam curlers when I was a little girl. I used to beg her to do it for me, or put it in a hundred little braids so it would be curly or crimped in the morning. She was really good about it (especially for my birthdays), even though it usually took an hour. I looked under my bathroom sink, and found I still have those same curlers, so I got to thinking... And here is the result! First, straight out of their wraps.

Then, separated with a cute little butterfly barrette I found at the back of my hair-band drawer~

Okay, apparently I didn't select the one with the clip. Oops! I wonder how long it will last with all this humidity we've been blessed with lately? I'm sure these curls will settle down in another hour or so. What do you think? It's funny how short my hair looks like this. Just fun on my part, nothing special going on! :)

Ha! Fun - I like the little curls. I used to have hair...

I love the ringlet look! It does look short, comparatively. I actually miss Allison's long hair for that very reason!
