Good Hair

All my life (well, as far as I can remember) I have had a love/hate relationship with my hair. I've always wanted thick, straight hair that can air dry looking just as perfect as it would have been if blow dryed. I have no such luck. I ended up with thin, fine, frizzy Kramer (from Seinfeld) hair. My issues go way back. I can remember trying to get my "crave the wave bangs" to poof and go up and over my forehead in just the right way all the while dousing them with Teen Spirit hair spray. Any of you feel my pain? Oh..I won't even get into the time I accidentally turned my hair orange with Peroxide. Well, maybe I will get into it. You can't make this story up.

In middle school, I read (in my YM magazine that I had snuck upstairs to my room) that peroxide would lighten your hair. So, I found a bottle of leave in conditioner, emptied the bottle and filled it with Peroxide. I then decided I better not try it in fear my mom would ask me why my hair was lighter and have to reveal that I had read it in gasp...YM magazine!!

So fast forward 2 years later. I was digging through the bathroom cabinets and came across a bottle of leave in conditioner. I decided my hair could use a good dose of moisture so for a few weeks I sprayed the "conditioner" in and started to wonder why my hair felt like straw. It all clicked when one day my mom asked me why my hair looked orange. I felt a little sick when it finally dawned on me that I had been spraying Peroxide in my hair for 2 weeks. My poor head of hair was not only orange, but it was dry and brittle. One chunk of hair in the front actually broke off about 2 inches from my scalp and I had to bobby pin it down to keep it from standing straight up.

Like I said, you can't make this stuff up!

Anyways...all that said because after all these years of dying, highlighting, straightening and blow drying, I have finally found the perfect hair product. I'm serious people! Three weeks of good hair days! I'm totally addicted to .....drum roll please.....

Argan Oil!!

Oh Argan Oil. How I love you!!!

Girls, you've got to try this stuff. Just run a dime size amount through your wet hair and BAM, instant shine and softness. No more fly aways! This stuff actually bulks up my thin hair and makes it feel thicker!

Some salons carry a line called Moroccan Oil that sells for $30 per 4 oz bottle. Crazy!!! I went online and found that Sally's Beauty Supply sells the same stuff but bottled as Argan Oil. It's only $8.99 per bottle. On my first trip to Sally's, I asked the sales lady if they carried the stuff. She laughed and said they did but they can't keep it on the shelves! She found me a sample bottle and told me to keep checking back because their supply only lasts a few days. Get on it girls! Go get 'cha some Argan Oil. You'll thank me !!!

FYI...Argan Oil is oil produced from the kernals of argan tree fruit. This type of tree is mostly found in Morocco. Just in case you were wondering :) But really, why are you still reading this. Shouldn't you be on your way to Sally's?

Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mommies out there. You know who you are :)

I'm not sure what it is about Mother's Day at the Pearce house that brings out the ill attitudes of my two "bundles of joy" but......

here's a joyous moment from last year

and again this year.

Come on kids. Crack a smile for me. I went through childbirth for goodness sakes!! Joking...I love 'um to pieces even if they choose to save their crabbiest day for Mother's Day. I'm taking this day to praise God for entrusting me with the task of raising these two kiddos. He couldn't have given me better ones and I pray my life reflects the joy it brings me just to wake up every morning to these two faces (smiling or not!)

My Child's A Genius!!

I just had to dedicate an entire blog post to the genius that is my child.

This one...

The verdict is still out on this one. I kid, I kid. She is equally as smart although far more sassy.
But back to Hudson. I mentioned in an earlier post that Hudson loves the website He's mastered the sounds of all the letters so I took it a step further to see if he could put some sounds together. Wow!! My child is a reader! He can sound out almost any three letter word you throw at him. After a couple of days of reading random words, I wrote out some sentences while we were playing with sidewalk chalk. There are only so many sentences you can make with two and three letter words, so my child proudly read "Pip is a dog." and "I am a fat pig." Don't judge. I ordered him some beginner books that have only two and three letter words so I'm sure he'll have some more intelligent things to read in the near future. What a smartie!
