thanksgiving hair

I wanted to do more than my go-to pinned bangs/low pony hairstyle that I always seem to default to out of convenience and ineptitude to do much more this Thanksgiving. I opted to curl it on up (sang to The Jefferson's theme). Here's a quickie how-to.
Ignore our awful, streaky mirror. That's on my Saturday cleaning list. This is the "before" shot. Hello, morning hair!
Pull hair into 4 separate sections--2 in back; 2 in front.
Before you begin curling, run some smoothing serum through your locks--I used Aussie and I LOVE it
Curl in one-inch sections (or, if you're like me and have no reference of what an inch is, just grab chunks and go)
Do this one section at a time, repeating the smoothing serum for each of the 4 sections. I alternated directions of which way I curled because my hair is notoriously flat.
Marvel at how simple it was/how great it turned out (even if you dripped smoothing serum on your boob)
I got this tutorial from P&G Beauty and it only took me about 25 minutes from start to finish. I have a deceivingly large amount of hair so I was pretty impressed. And now, my thankful list:
-Jon, without whom, this life thing would not be going so well for me and our family (nor would I have my family!)
-Elden, the first person to give me the title of "Mom."
they grow up so fast, don't they?
-family and friends
-my job and the ability to provide for our family in this crazy season of life
-a roof over our heads, food in our tummies, and the ability to worship freely
-chicken pad thai and general tso's chicken (and all the other crazy foods my marriage has introduced to my life)
-a napping baby!
-our health
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Don't forget the StrawberryButton giveaway ends tomorrow night!
