Bohemian Twists with Buns

Time:  12 minutes
Supplies:  brush, 2 clear elastics, bobby pins
Skill level:  easy+

I am so sorry for slacking on my posts.  I promise to do better and get right on filming some more great hairstyles for you all.  
But let me show you what I've been up to.

Oh yeah, here's the video to this adorable hairstyle I did on my sister.  You should all try it, because it's easy and pretty.

Now let me show you what I've been up to.
That's me in the middle, in the white shirt and track shorts, holding the yellow banner, and marching in my school's Homecoming Parade.  

You see, some of my special-needs friends, who I work with in peer tutor, wondered why they couldn't be a part of the parade.  Well they're just so stinkin' cute, I couldn't resist spearheading getting them in with a float.  But I had to find transportation, and a financial sponsor.  And the kids needed permission and physical help to make the parade route.

But we got started.  We glued paper chains with the kids until our fingers were totally stuck, we chalked, painted, and rounded up volunteers to help these kids enter.  And we did it!

Unfortunately, I can't show any of the pictures except the one above because of legal reasons for the kids.  But just imagine--in front of us who are walking with banners--an orange and blue, paper-chained trailer, full of the cutest waving Special Olympic's high school team you can imagine.  And...(drum roll, please) we were voted "The Best Float in the Parade" by the school.  Yeah!

And...my cute friend,
(and track buddy) was voted Homecoming Queen.

I went too.  But not with the fame she had.
