crushing on...braids

I wish I could braid my hair to look just like....













or I wish I had a hair braiding expert that lived with me....

We are back from the land of rainbows and palms, and we had the grandest time! But alas, we are back to reality...busy unpacking and getting back into our daily routines.

I am also busy getting ready for my sister in law's baby shower tomorrow, I am hoping to get something together for her and I'm also in charge of the baby shower games.


Sigh, so much to do... don't you feel that you need a vacation just to recover from your "vacation"?

Welcome home!! Can't wait to hear about it :)

I love braids... especially fishtail braids, they're not as hard as they look!

Welcome back :-)

I LOVE braids - when I had long hair I used to braid it all the time, and I miss it!

Welcome Back, Jozen:)

Jozen! I miss you already.. ha ha ha. :) It really was great meeting you though..

I actually have a braiding expert that lives with me.. okay, well she doesn't live with me, but she's one of my best friends! Her braids always come out awesome. I remember a few years ago when my hair was suuuper long, she used to braid it in different ways everytime I'd see her... that was like 4 days a week. It was awesome!

Well, hope you're slowly getting back into the groove. BIG HUG!

xx Love & Aloha

Welcome back! I can't wait to see the vacation photos!

I love braids too but have never been able to figure out how to get them in my hair. My Mom never could either. Maybe I'll learn how if I ever have a daughter of my own :)

Welcome home! I'm so glad you're back. And I completely agree with you about vacations -- I always feel like I need a day or two to recover and return to normal life. All these braids are lovely; I wish my hair was a bit longer to pull them off.

Oh no! Now your making me regret my desicion to cut my hair!! I had long, looong hair that I used to braid in all sorts of ways, but I just cut it to like... just below my shoulders and now I cant do anything with it. :p Its not that short really.... just feels like it. Hehe!
