Glitter and Braids

GG is a funny girl. One minute she's out digging for worms with her brother. The next she's playing dress-up.

Last Friday was all about her being a girl. One of her bestest friends was having her birthday party. She was allowed to invite only a few friends. The lucky group of girls were being treated.

Treated to a mini mani/pedi and a new hair-do.

This may not be the best picture, but cut me some slack. I was using my phone! Her nails are purple, pink, and all kinds of glittery!


Look! Her toes match her feet! Too bad Mother Bitch Nature is giving us the chills. Her piggies would look so cute in her flip-flops!


And last but not least, her hair. You can't tell from this picture, but those braids were just like her nails - all kinds of glittery. As a matter of fact, I think she still has glitter remnants in her hair!

When I went to pick her up at Pizza Hut after the party, I was greeted by a table full of giggly, glittery girls. They were all just too cute!

We kept GG's hair in as long as we could, which was Saturday night. Combine all that product with a girl who plays in the dirt and it just had to come out and get washed. I tried to redo that hairstyle Sunday night so she could show her friends at school, but it just wasn't happening. And it didn't matter anyway because I ended up with a sick little girl Monday morning.

I guess I shouldn't feel too bad. From what I understand, the birthday girl cried when her mom took the braids out of her hair. Although, on second thought, crying is better than throwing up.

I guess what really counts is that GG had fun. Which she did. Now only if I can convince her to do this for her birthday next month. I really need to talk her out of a party where she can invite boys!

I don't foresee a party in my daughters future without boys. her best friends are boys.

I think this is a cute party though. As much of a tomboy as my daughter is, she still loves to be pampered on occasion

Ok I love the hair. I love a braid period and I can never braid mine right lol. I have yet to find a hairstylist who can do a french braid that would endure a day which is seriously frustrating
