My Nemesis

My hair hates me. I don't know what I ever did to it. Except the time I tried to cut it myself. Or permed it more times than I can count. And I did let my mother brush it out after keeping it in braids for 3 days in a row (which resulted in my hair frizzing out wider than my body). Whatever it was-my hair won't forgive me.

As result, when I spend hours trying to convince my hair that it wants to be cute and curly it rebels and the end result resembles a dead wombat.

But when I give up on my hair, clip it up to get it out of my face, play ultimate frisbee for an hour and have absolutely nowhere to go and no boy to impress---it decides to be cute. Not cool.In case you can't tell---the second picture is of my hair actually being cute. At least, I think it is. Maybe I'm wrong...

And also, the last picture is what
happened the first time I tried to take a
picture of my hair. I'm a dork.

So cute hair. I always thought you and your hair had a beautiful relationship. Not like my dead beaver hair.

You know, all you have to do is turn off the flash silly!!! Anyway, usually if you want your hair to look cute, you have to go to a really good professional hair stylist everyday, and pay them a lot of money, and then have to photographers do a little number to the picture....or you could just be normal and cute like you already are, oh, but still go to a really good professional hair stylist every once in a while.....dude, if that didn't make any sense, I am a little drugged on benedryll. Sorry!

I want to play ultimate frisbee for an hour...oh the good ol' days when I wasn't flabby fat and lazy! lol!

Did you go to the Y or you just own the shirt?

I wish my hair looked that good pulled back!

So do you have natural curls that I never knew about? And at least your hair looks cute at some point. Mine doesn't look good if I try or if I don't! :)

Yeah, we thought about you while going through Cokeville, Nicole tried to call but we didn't get service. Check this out for another Cokeville post www.imdesertbound.blogspot.com

Oh Barbara I hope you know how happy that first picture makes me. It is hilarious!

Let's be honest-most normal girls have that problem. At least I do. Just this Sunday, in fact. Saturday, when I put the hair up when going for a walk, it was great. Sunday, when I tried to actually make it look good-:P

Hmmm...maybe there is something about exercise that helps hair be pretty. Not the sweaty kind of exercise, but the 'I guess I did enough to say that I exercised' kind of exercise!

Way cute hair and your face looks like WAY thin too. Just to let you know.

And this is why I like your blog - because you are real. That pic with the flash - wonderful dose of honesty. Thanks for bringing a smile to my lips today.

Haha. I don't know how "real" I am if the middle picture is one of five that I took trying to get the best one:)
