    I am glad you are embracing the fro and doing the vintage thing with it. It reminds me of the 60′s groupie all girl band THE GTO’s with Pamela Des Barres. Check their pictures out.

    I was thinking to myself the other day, could I be any more jealous of how utterly FAB Maegan is? And today you helped me answer that…

    Yes. I can. And am.

    Looking good lady!

    I wish I could get my hair to do that. It is too smooth and curls fall out almost instantly it seems. It’d take me hours and hours to try to get my hair even remotely like that! :)

    Love the photo shoot. It’s gorgeous!

    You look beyond gorgeous in these shots! I mean, like an renaissance angel. And I cannot believe the hair turned out so awesomely. I guess when you’ve got great hair, it does everything well. Thanks for this terrific holiday post.

    i’m going to agree with all these people and say, “I LOVE THE FRO!” i thought those curls would end up in some silly fro, and you would post pictures of yourself just for fun, but i really think it looks fantastic. you can pull anything off!!!

    Ok…these photos are awesome! And I can’t believe there wasn’t a photographer taking them! Awesome set, too. I particularly like the one with LeRoy’s balls.

    But seriously – nice job!!!

    you all are so nice, you’re making me smile BIGTIME!

    I have to say I love the fro! Every time I walked into the living room, my husband giggled a little. It was so BIG! I also had to go to Maxwell dog like that to get dog food before they closed. I wore a v-neck and sweats and that hair and flower and sunglasses …Hilarity!

    I used sponge rollers on wet hair {see post below} and instead of rolling them from the bottom up {as my mom used to do when I was a kid, I started at the top {like the wavy hair-to video} with each one. And I slept on them. When I took them out I had cute ringlets {see post below} and then I pulled them all apart with my fingers ..I wish I had a pick though. It would have worked better. As the day went on, it got bigger and bigger and bigger.

    It was a mess trying to get the curls out in the shower this morning though. SO MUCH CONDITIONER!! It was worth it though. I should do it once a month just for a switcheroo.

    Also, I take all the photos myself. I set it up for a custom timer which takes three in a row ..I wish it took like ten in a row though but I seriously get a work out from running back and forth. I just use a Canon elph but I’d like a nice camera with a tri-pod and a remote so I don’t have to run back and forth 20million times.
