One wash n go ... three great looks

Hello everyone!  I started my grad classes this week and I'm blown away with all the reading I need to do.  My independent study will be more work than taking a class, but I didn't want another evening class.  Seeing my hubby and spending time with my boy is too important.  I woke up at six this morning and realized that this was the end of my third week of being back to work.  I observed that it was dark outside and that three weeks ago the sun was up.  I went snow boot shopping with my son today and the high temp today was only 68 degrees.  So, for me summer is officially over and winter will be here sooner than I want and fall (even though it's beautiful) is just a reminder that winter is almost upon us.

Anyway, I did my usual wash n go this week and I got three great looks out of it.  The first two photos are my wash n go from my nephew's birthday party on Saturday that I posted this past Monday.  I simply pinned the sides with a barrette on top of my head, made a pompadour with my bangs, and added a flower (of course).  Besides a low grade headache four hours later, this was an easy quick style and I will do it again.  Next time, I will figure out how to do this without the headache.


This next group of pictures is day two and day three hair.  The top row is day two.  I decided to twist my bangs that were in the pompadour into about nine small twists before I went to bed.  I sprayed a little water and slept in my silk scarf.  In the morning I took my twists out, pulled my hair into a puff, and add my new purple flower.  Cute style and I got a lot of compliments on my new flower and earrings.
For day three hair.  I didn't do much.  I didn't re-twist, I just went to bed with my silk scarf, pulled my new headband on and fluffed my hair.  I also got some compliments on this look.  I love how my hair is bigger, but the curls are still popping!  If you look closely in the back my grays are sticking out.  I don't care.  I even have a few in the front.  So.  I love this new headband.  It's just tight enough to hold my hair back, without slipping or causing a headache.  I love the fact that my hair is long enough to have bangs!  The extremes in MN tempatures this week had me in shorts and then wool socks today.  I'm loving the fact that I can wear my hair up or down so I can be warm or cool.
My son and his zucchini.  I love this picture.

On a totally different topic.  A neighbor of mine shared some zucchini with us and my son wanted to be a big boy and carry it home.  This large zucchini was too heavy for him, so I had to help him out.  I had to get a picture of him with this zucchini.  I plan to make zucchini bread this weekend, but first I got homework and reading.  Until next time...
Blessings!

  2. The zucchini is as big as he is. That is a picture to frame and put on the wall. I'm trying to figure out which of the three styles I like the best and I am making no headway in my decision. I like 2 but I also like 3 . . . and I like 1, too. So, I think it is a three way tie.

    Nice hair!

  5. Thank you! I'm hoping to do another twist out on my whole head, but with me being back to work, taking grad classes and being a mom I just don't have the energy or time. I too like having bangs and I got the headband at half off! When I make the zucchini bread I will post the recipe and pictures.

    1. The last one was the easiest and most fun, but I had to wait for my hair to frizz a little. A little frizz is good for big hair. Little man just loves that zucchini. When I told me that we would be eating it he acted like I was putting down the dog.
