Vacation: All I Ever Wanted

Finally, for the first time in about 14 years I took a real vacation!!!

My mom, brother & I went and it was great. This was my first vacay with my mom in 22 years & my first vacay with my brother ever. Needless to say, I was excited!!!

We went to Hilton Head Island, SC.  A place we had all been before, but never together. So it was familiar, but different. 

First of all, it was originally forecast to rain all week long because of a hurricane/storm in the Atlantic. It didn't!!! It rained on the way there, it rained Sunday, but the rest of the week, is was smooth, beautiful, dry sailing.

The island has changed soooo much since the last time I was there in about 1999.  So many new things have been built, the make of the streets have changed to the point where it almost looked unrecognizable.  Almost. But change is ever present, and we still had a ball.

How did my hair fair???? NOT WELL AT ALL!!!!  It was actually kind of funny. I had washed my hair and put it in big twists the Thursday before we left, so that I would have all of this definition and lusciousness when we got there. Well, I took those twists out Monday morning before going on my bike ride. I walked out of the door with beautiful definition.

I came back with this:

No definition, no twist, no curl and barely a coil. There died my hopes of a twist out. Not to be deterred from my desire for biking, beach and books, I turned to the ever-faithful fallback...


I was a puff princess for a couple of days, but after a while, having to twist & take out the fluffy, pillow soft hair over and over grew old.  Especially since I normally do not manipulate my hair daily.

I ended up cowashing my hair and putting it up in not-so-mini twists for the remaining days of my vacay.

The lesson: Just twist your hair!!! It's so much easier and much less time consuming when it's all said and done.

Now, I'm back to reality!!!
