I finally did it! For the first time in my life!!

Ok so it's not the first time any more, it's now been a dozen or so times as it has taken me months to get around to sharing. But every time I do it I still get excited that I can take all of this ...

 and do this to it......

That's right, I finally learned how to French braid my hair! Only took 30 years LOL That was my very first attempt up there. It was like 4:00 am and I had the bright idea to look up French braid videos on Youtube (why had I not thought to do this before?).

Attempt number two.....

In middle school a couple of friends tried to teach me on their hair and on dolls hair but for some reason it just never clicked. I can braid, I know the mechanics of a French braid, but the two just never came together for me.

Attempt number three (sorry the pics are really bad)...

 I always thought It was so weird that I couldn't do this one normal, everyone-knows-how-to-do thing with my hair. Especially since I was always so girly. 

But no more! My braids might be really loose at the base, and there might be bumps at the top, but I CAN FRENCH BRAID MY OWN HAIR!!!! =D

Just a Quickie

This is just a quickie post to show off my fur-babies

That's PJ on the left and Pooka on the right. They were watching our mouthy squarel, and this was right before Pooka hopped up the fence after him. She never hopped the fence till she chased him up a tree a couple of months ago. I have pictures of the squarel feasting at one of my bird feeders but they are on another computer. I'll try to remember to move them over to this one.

My girls are beautiful but alas I'm using them to try and spark a bit of a blogging bug in me. I have a couple of posts in mind (one from the first week of July) but I just haven't gotten myself to do them. Fingers crossed this works, but if not at least we can ogle my girls ;D
