Channeling Madonna

This past weekend was rainy and dreary.  On Sunday morning, when I was sipping my coffee, I looked up to see my almost 2 year old sporting a bunch of hair elastics on her left wrist.

"Did you put those on her Riley?"  I asked
"No Mama, she got them out of your drawer and put them one by one on her wrist.  I think she looks sort of cool." She said

I had to laugh.  I think it was 1984 when I too, thought they looked mighty cool.  Those jelly bracelets, piled one on top of another as I danced around my room to Material Girl.  Yikes. 

Oh and those bracelets are now trashed because they were encrusted with Sydney's bagel and cream cheese - neither of which made it into her belly but a lot on those bracelets and of course, in her hair.  

Come back tomorrow for our Featured Artist Thursday and a NEW GIVEAWAY!
