You were right there...And I thank you (thank you)

TOP 5 SIMPLE THINGS I AM THANKFUL FOR: (part 2 of a 3 part mini-series)

1.The Dentist. The joy I get the first time I rub my tongue across my freshly cleaned and buffed teeth is indescribable. I've never had a bad experience at the dentist, so to me these people- this experience- is so refreshing. Plus the constant compliments about my clean, straight, and cavity-free teeth that come my way each visit helps the ego a little bit...which is always a plus.

2. Scarves. I can't wear turtlenecks, necklaces, or collared shirts because I feel like they are slowly choking me to death, but scarves...for some reason scarves are different. Maybe it's because I own a couple really cute really soft scarves and love to show them off at winter time, but I love getting all bundled up with a scarf on when it's cold outside (like this morning)

3. Lotion. I currently have 5 different scents of lotion in my purse, along with about 15 other scents sitting on my desk in my room. I have an addiction, but I love it. I love the feel of soft skin, and I love smelling delicious. I get a high every time I walk into Bath and Body works, because I can smell all the scents that will soon be purchased and taken home. Everyday brings a new scent, or a combination of scents that I have put together special.

4. Movie Musicals. Glorious cinematography, catchy tunes, and brilliant costuming--this movie genre has so much to offer. I am excited to see the resurgence of movie musicals as blockbuster gold, and the new audience that it is reaching, but I love the fact that I have been a fan since childhood. Movies such as Annie, Little Shop of Horrors, Wizard of Oz, Newsies, West Side Story, Grease, Funny Girl, Sound of Music, and even Grease 2 gave me an appreciation for this magnificent film genre. And now with such films as Chicago, Dreamgirls, Moulin Rouge, Hairspray, Across the Universe, Rent, and coming soon Sweeney children across the globe are realizing the beauty as well.

5. Naturally Curly Hair. If there is one thing that I can claim a slight OCD about it's my hair. My day's mood is determined by how my hair looks, and I will spend as much time as needed to make sure it looks amazing. But the awesome thing is, having naturally curly/wavy hair means that I always have a Plan B. I love the fact that no matter what, IF ALL GOES WRONG, I just scrunch, spray, and go.

This is why I wish I had naturally curly hair. I would love to scrunch, spray, and go. It almost always makes me tempted to get a perm and then I look at my pictures from the 80's and think "never mind."

I wish I had that same appreciation for my curly hair. It drives me freakin crazy sometimes. I have no control over what it does when I leave it curly and don't straighten it. When I straighten it...I know exactly what it's going to do.
