Where have I been???

Wow!! Where has the time seriously gone? Life has just been crazy, crazy!! I keep thinking it's going to slow down this week - but it only gets worse. We are getting ready to go to Costa Rica next week so I've been trying to get lots done before we leave, which includes a project for Super Saturday that is like the next day we get home & I started teaching piano this fall & my little girlie is in preschool & the mornings (even though she leaves at 11:) we just don't have time to sit & take pictures - so there you have it. But I promise - I'm still around!! I actually have a couple hairdos that I have ready to post - it's just the "getting around to it" part that's hard. I know people are waiting for a new post so here's something VERY VERY quick that hopefully anyone can do:

Part the hair on the side. French braid just a few strands down on one side (if you aren't very good at french braiding or dont' know how, just do a regular braid - it would work just as well)
The other side, you are going to twist. Don't put an elastic in just yet!!
Bring the braid over so that it is on the side - not middle (kinda hard to tell in this picture but it is more on the side) Take the elastic out for the braid so you only have one elastic holding them both together.
I just curled the hair & added a bow. How fast is that??? But just kind of fun with it being 2 different braids on the sides. Here is a side view of the french braid.

I am glad you posted...I was getting worried. I love your ideas, and I agree with the previous post, your daughter is so adorable.

Thanks for the simple do! I love it when you do simple ones that I could sqeeze out before school starts. Please post more easy ones that can be done in 10 min or less! Love all the ideas and the beautiful blog page.

Love it! We are in crazy mode right now too. This one is cute and will definitely appeal to my very opinionated four-year-old. She scans through your blog to pick out the ones she wants me to do. Thanks so much!

So I have become obsessed with your blog I never go a day with out looking at it. I love doing my little sisters hair and just love getting ideas from your blog!

Thanks so much - I've just found your site and a few others opening up a whole new world to me! Really!
I actually did a version of this style today. As I didn't have time to curl, and my little girl's hair isn't all that thick, I put a bow in where the twist and braid met, braided the rest into one simple braid with a matching bow at the bottom and we were done. It looked very nice. I never have time to do the elaborate do's on weekdays, but I'm really looking forward to christmas vacation!!
