Girlie stuff

Who knew girlie stuff could be so much fun!!  My sweet cousin sent me a goodie box last night.  I got lots of bows/flowers, a handmade burp cloth, a cover up for breastfeeding (which is a good thing because I was never very good at being discreet with the boys.  I couldn't get myself coordinated) , some little hats and headbands.  When I was pregnant with the boys, they didn't have all of these cute burp cloths and embroidering wasn't all the rage like it is now.  I love all of that stuff but I don't have a crafty bone in my body!!
Who knew that things like these...
and  these...
could change my little world!!  I was amazed that you could actually change the bow or flower on the band or hat to make a whole new look. (I know what you are thinking... but remember that I have lived in a world full of boys for the last 7 years).  So... I spent a few hours trying out the many different looks I could make with about 3 headbands/hats and 10 different bows/flowers!  Ryan just watched and sighed because I was in my own world for a bit.  For the last 7 years, my hair fixing has consisted of throwing some water on the boy's head and running out the door and every now and then, licking my finger to get that one piece of alfalfa sprout to lay flat.  What am I going to do when I actually have to fix someones hair??  I have no idea how to braid hair much less put it in a ponytail so at this point these hats and headbands are going to be a lifesaver for Isabelle at least until I can get my hair styling techniques mastered.  Hopefully she will actually keep them on!
