No, I'm not talking about braids on muffins. I'm talking about a braid trade for muffins. Put simply...slow day at work means idle hands willing to braid my hair in return for baked goods. Capitalism at its finest.
Which brings me to the Freckles in April Style Challenge. Time to fashion an end-of-summer up do.
This is the magic that was worked on my hair this morning. I could never do this myself. It would be a mess of tangles ending with a not-so-pretty do and achy fingers.
(Please ignore the post-partum bald spot I'm sporting these days. I think I need some spray-on hair)
(also ignore the decor. I took this at work. Shhhhh, don't tell. I mean, it was taken over lunch)
(weird light effect is not from a sky light or divine intervention but rather my broken phone with a huge crack over the selfie lens)
(this pose because I know everyone is wondering exactly what the top view is like)
Aaaaaand now onto my five favs of the moment as seen on Moxie Wife.
1) This jumper chair
2) This guy

3) Soft ice. It's the kind of ice that comes out of hospital ice machines on the wards. And I love it. Unabashedly. I chew it all day long when I'm at work and I think I have a problem. And a chipped tooth.
4) Up and Up Target brand breast milk bags. I have used Lansinoh, Gerber, and Medela and nothing beats these little gems. I switched to them a while back because they were the cheapest and now I realize they are also the best for freezing breast milk. I used to get leakers with the other brands pretty regularly and waste precious droplets of my hard earned milk. Now, leakers no more. Bless you Tar-zhay!
5) McDonald's french fries. Mostly because someone just brought me some and they are out of this world delicious and hitting the spot. Hot, salt, and fat. Done. They're not lyin' - I really am lovin' it.
