sweet little hands...

These are the precious hands of my baby niece Annie. She and my sister came to stay with Cody and me a couple of days before Christmas. I gave her sprinkles  - She loved them. I know they probably aren't the best thing to give her.. but she really didn't eat that many.. But it was so much fun watching her eat them.

And then she grew tired of eating them one by one and found an easier way....

Tuesday Tune...

Did you know that Zooey Deschanel was in the band She & Him? I just figured that one out.. I love her.. she is fun and starred in one of the funniest movies of all time - ELF. She was also one the cover of one of my favorite issues of Domino Magazine. Oh yeah - And the him... is M. Ward.  No wonder I like them.

a christmas long ago... well 1987...

This is a pic from Christmas 1987 - I was in fifth grade and had a crimp perm.. yes the crimp lasted for-ever.

Christmas 1987

I told the lady at the salon that I wanted my hair to look like I slept with it in braids and then took them out... Don't get me wrong - it was super cool.. at first.  I was even somewhat of a trendsetter when my step-sister marched right to the salon and got her one too. 
The day I got my beloved perm  - 11yrs old

The problem came a bit later - as it was growing out it was kind of a frizzy mess... The top 2 inches of my hair were normal - then there was crimp. I ended up getting it cut a little shorter to get the crimp out faster.. but I will never forget  - The Crimp Perm.
