So as a stay-at-home mom of 3 girls (none of which are in school yet), laundry that multiplies by the minute, seemingly endless ironing piles to do, meals that won't fix themselves, stacks of preschool homework with an anxious child holding a scissor, closets forever needing to be organized- ditto for the drawers, younger child running around asking for a scissor (after she's just finished coloring my wall) and never ending vacuuming and bathroom cleaning... obviously, (like all you other Moms out there) I find endless amounts of free-relaxing time during the day- NOT!!!

However to avoid the above dreary list, I've gotten a recent new priority: HEADBANDS!

My sweet little Kacey, she's got the most beautiful blond curls. I don't have to do anything to them, a little spritz of my very own concoction of fancy schmancy water and conditioner :) and I define her curls with my fingers... However, she doesn't have a whole lot of hair on the top or in the front of her head. Perfect solution: adorable headbands.

I've been accumulating my ribbon supply, buying headbands at the dollar store, matching cute color combos with button centers, and now has come the time to assemble. I guess my fingers just don't work with the small things like that, it's a good thing I'm not a surgeon. (I always thought I would've made a GREAT lawyer!- as I never apologize because I'm never wrong and I can talk my point until I'm blue in the face... I digress)

Maybe I don't have the patience to assemble, and maybe my mom just knows she'll do a better job..... SO my fabulously, wonderfully talented Mom did my slave labor and put all these together. I'm so excited, they are gorgeous... and we're (she's) still not done, I've got more ribbon and a few more headbeads to go. I love them, they came out super cute!!! I think I'm going to buy little suction hooks (you know, the kind that hang on shower tile) and put them on the huge mirror in the girls' bathroom, and hang the headbands on there.


The outtakes of my precious -silly- middle child!
Can you tell she's trying to watch Goofy on the TV behind me?! But she's still smiling!

"Kacey look at me, EYES OPEN!" (Goofy apparently is still more interesting than me at this point)

Yeah, only took us 20 tries!

So I need to get with you and make some of those headbands for Loryn. I just finished making some bows for her. I love the headbands, very cute.
