Hair Storm Warning

What a week I've been having! Instead of focusing on the negative, I'll focus on the positive! We've had a crazy weather-week with tornadoes and lightning storms and still over 6000 people in the surrounding area without power. (This village only has a population of 1800 so you can get a grasp on the magnitude!) I'm thankful that we only lost one tree, and that it didn't fall on the house. I'm thankful that our electricity was restored quite promptly compared to many people. I'm thankful that we managed to cook and live a relatively normal life in the midst of semi-chaos, and most of all I'm thankful that the we had baby tornadoes and not the giant scary ones that carry entire houses away with them. Also, having ice cream for dinner on day one was just all kinds of awesome, plus all of the extra kid-time spent huddling around candles without electronic distractions was the biggest bonus.

Also awesome, this storm-inspired hair. I want to do this, just once!

That is some amazing tornado hair!

That's all,

  1. I let my hairdresser give me tornado hair a few weekends ago. I don't know if I can pull it off. I think I'm more of a spring breeze hair kind of girl.

  2. Whoa, I'm glad to hear you're alright. That sounds rough. I love the picture you posted. I think you could pull it off. Hey, you only live once.

  3. When I was young enough to go clubbing (Are you ever too old for clubbing?), I used to crimp my shoulder-length hair and then back-comb it to be all huge. No, no it was not anywhere close to the 1980's!
