New Year's Resolutions

Hello, all!

Happy New Year!

Hope it's been a good one, so far.

I've had a good one, mostly because we made a turkey dinner for New Year's Eve and I've still got leftovers in the fridge.  Turkey sandwiches are my favorite.  :)

Also, I have curly hair. 

(Don't worry, that last bit was completely unrelated.  Although...)

Since we're on the topic, can I tell you about having curly hair?  It's pretty awesome.

See, I've always known I had curly hair, but I had no idea what to do with it.  It should have been very pretty.  Instead, it was frizzy.  Unless, of course, I went a day or two without washing it, at which point it became smooth and shiny and straight.  That was always fun.  And a little gross.

Then, I stopped washing my hair altogether, and it turned super curly and pretty and fun! 

Well, that's not entirely true.  I also stopped brushing my hair.

There you have it.  The secret to curly hair is not washing it or brushing it.

And using a ton of conditioner.

Water + Conditioner - shampoo - brushes and combs = fun, shiny, bouncy, easy easy easy curls.

Welcome to the new year!

 :) :) :)

Oh, right.  I was supposed to talk about New Year's resolutions.

Typically, I don't believe in them.  In fact, I still don't believe in them.  Too arbitrary.

 However, I have a new goal, which happens to coincide with the New Year, so I'll fudge on a technicality. 

This year, I'm going to take pictures.  Hopefully, there will be lots of them.  Then, once a month, I'll get them printed off.  Then, I'll stick them, unceremoniously and un-craftily, into a picture box.  The end. 

There will be very little editing, little-to-no captioning, and no cutting or glueing.  Print and stuff, baby.  It may not be much, but in 20 years, I'll be thrilled to have tons of pictures to look through. 

This bit of brilliance was my Mom's doing.  Thanks, Mom!

Also, I want a puppy.  Does anyone else want a puppy?

Happy New Year!

What are you not resolving to do this year?

My niece does "No-Poo" treatment on her hair. She swears by it. You might want to google the term.

People are always amazed at how naturally curly my hair is...and it's just wavy by family standards!

I have tons of pix in a box. Stuffed in. Now I have ton in files on my computer as well. At least those are easy to organize.

It's good to print them, as you plan, because computers can crash!

So, I'm also wondering, do you use styling product on your hair now that you're not shampooing?
