Headband Challenge

Friday, August 5, 2011

This week I decided to take the headband challenge of Little Miss Momma. And that was to wear a headband every day this week. I thought that would be simple and fun :) 

So here's my week of headband wearing.

Day 1- Friday
I made this headband :) Simple and cute. Hubby and I went out with some friends from church to take some walks around some new places we hadn't seen before. Then came back to their place for a BBQ.

Day 2- Saturday
Went out to check up on a few job applications- not hiring :( Praying that the Lord opens up just the right job for me. We're planning on Christmas with my family in California, and it will be 2 years since I last saw them all! So we're hoping and praying I can find a job so we'll be able to make it out there!
I made this headband following Mandy's crochet headband tutorial. .. Mine didn't turn out as adorable as hers are!

Day 3- Sunday
I hate when my hair decides to be rebellious and unmanageable on church mornings. Is it just me, or does anyone else have bad days all starting because of their hair not cooperating?? I felt like such a grump sitting in church! Anyway..Well, guess what? I made this headband too- yesterday :) I don't really have a wide or large selection of headbands! I need LOTS more. But I found a tutorial on how to make fabric Yo Yo's. So easy and quick to dress up a little stretchy band!

Day 4- Monday
Finally I worked on my headboard makeover today! I'm such a procrastinator.. I shoved it in the car and drove the 2 minutes to Hubby's parents' to use their backyard for spray painting while they're away on vacation. It was such a beautiful day out! I hardly ever spend much time outside these days. Okay so.. I made this headband too.. months ago and never wear it. I'm running out of headbands for this challenge! .. Did I say already that I need a few more?? :) I guess I gotta get a little more creative for the rest of the week.

Day 5- Tuesday 
Hubby and I went to his parents' and stole some frozen blueberries to make blueberry muffins! YUM.
I made this headband too.. last month or so, just trying out my crochet. I didn't really like it after I made it, buuuut I needed another headband to wear this week and I think it actually looks alright. 

Day 6- Wednesday 
Tried something new with my hair... and I'm not really sure what to think about it.
I followed this braided updo tutorial, and now that I look back at the tutorial I realize I didn't do it right! I braided ALL my hair into two braids, she only does half her hair. Oops.. After doing my hair I realized the braids kind of make a headband look, so I wore my headband at the top of my forehead which I never do. I think I look strange. Not sure if it's the hairdo or the band! (these stretchy bands are so stinking tight, they hurt!)

Day 7- Thursday 
Yes, the last day of this challenge! I realize I don't wear my headbands like all the new trendy ways, and that my headband wearing is not exactly amazing, but just wearing a headband every day was a challenge and it made me feel a little more put together.
P.s... I made this headband too :)
