30 Days, 30 Ways: Day 22

Admittedly, I'm not the best at the zig-zag parts...although this did turn into a lovely talk with my daughter about the fashions and fashion trends of "my day", and why you should never wear a pair of sweats with "Dance" written across the butt.

Day 22: Zig-Zag Part
We used: A brush (because I couldn't find the dang comb I was going to use for this) and two (mismatched) elastics
Ella's verdict: "This is kinda cool, Mom!"

My apologies for not posting yesterday. I was out all day with a friend and by the time I got home, I was just so tired I didn't want to do ANYTHING.

You guys know all about Ella donating her hair and the cool hairstyles we found right here...


Day 20: Twisty Rows
We used: A brush, detangler, and some clippy things
Ella's verdict: "This is really cute!"

Day 21: French-is, Totally Crooked Braids
We used: A brush, elastics and the very last of my braiding skills
Ella's verdict: "It's okay, Mom, you tried. And I still like them!"

39/52, Sunday: Found the dress in the back of the closet...a Gymboree find a while back. Still love it!
