Little String Bean

Poor Olivia.
She has the most thin, scraggly, stringy hair. No matter how much I wash it and brush it, she always looks like her hair hasn't been washed or combed in a week.
She didn't get this from me. I was born with very thick, natural curly hair, which was just peachy in the early '90's, I had the biggest hair around! But now...oh boy! If I don't blow dry and straighten my hair, I have the biggest, frizziest afro! What I would give to have thin, straight hair!!!

And Sarah, is my little mini-me. She had a head full of ringlets as a toddler, and now has thick wavy hair which is always a headache to try and fix before school each morning.

(She was so cute, I couldn't decide on just one picture)

So, I decided to give Olivia a haircut. With the help of her favorite guacamole chips, she sat pretty still!
And I think it turned out adorable!

Random Tips of the Day:

Dunkin Donuts coffee is not that good. Resist the urge to buy it, even if it is on sale.

If you go to the store without make-up on, you WILL see someone you know.

The Super Bowl rocked and Super Tuesday, well... I won't go there. I will keep my blog politically-free :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Rachel said...

Wow! You did a fabulous job on her look adorable! You have two very beautiful little girls!

Ona said...

Your "joy" is so adorable.

Meghan said...

You, Becca and Tiff are going to have to give me hair cutting lessons when my baby needs his or her first! You did a great job and it looks very cute!

Lindsay said...

yes, I agree! It looks adorable. Great job, mom!

Michelle said...

So sweet! My Hannah and I both have that fine hair that looks a mess no matter what! :-)

Christi said...

I think that is one reason God gave me boys instead of girls. I would probably ruin a girl's hair! You did so good...but I think she's one of those little girls that looks cute no matter what.

Stefanie said...

She is so adorable Liz - I mean, they both are! I had no idea you had naturally curly hair - good work with the straightening job. I have crazy hair that I have never mastered:)

Angela said...

Great job Liz!
Those girls are precious!

We have those same turquoise cupcake jammies for Elsa!
P.S. Isn't big hair making a comeback?

So I was impatient and hit the "publish your comment" button twice before it worked. Oops.

Hey, just a little secret...Mike will win a nice chunk of change even if he comes in last so make sure your hubby claims that promised cup of coffee!

I never thought of the food when giving a haircut trick! I'm gonna use that - cutting my toddler's hair was, well, NOT wiggle free to say the least. I'll just have to watch that I don't get hair all over his food.

I've been around for quite a lot of time, but finally decided to show my appreciation of your work!

Thumbs up, and keep it going!
