Frizz head/Spongehead

Hair…ugh. 
My hair is the bane of my existence.  
I was blessed with sort-of, but not-really curly hair.  
It is thin-ish, but also coarse-ish.  It doesn’t have an identity.
It’s every bad hair day you have ever experienced all rolled into one.
When I was young it was bad.  Real bad.  Growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s there were no Chi’s.  No one ever taught me how to do a blow-out…AND the dreaded banana clip was in style…or at least I thought it was.
C’mon ladies, you know you had one.  I loved my banana clip, I wore it all the time, leading to many broken strands of hair and hair-aches….you know, when your hair is pulled back so tight that you look a little Asian.  That was me.
My mother used to give me perms, when I was in, like, the 4th grade.  I know she was trying to help, but looking back on those photos I really think that she was just punishing me for being sassy or telling a lie.  I think it was her passive aggressive form of punishment….oh, that’s mean.
I embraced the big bangs and the Aquanet, but I never looked cool.  I loved Elizabeth Shue from the Adventures in Babysitting…do you remember that movie?   As a kid I thought she was so cool…she said the “f” word.  It was awesome.  So, trying to get hair that looked like hers I got yet another perm and ended up with triangle hair.  Again, NOT cute.
In the 90’s I graduated to the scrunchie.  I had one in every color, to match every outfit.  Then it was enormous bows.  I once had a bow that was almost the size of my head.  So weird.
Then I had the “Rachael”
Then the “Posh”
Now I think that I have crossed over to the dark side and have “mom hair”….dun, dun dunnnnnn.
Does everyone wish they had someone else’s hair or is it just me?  
I have dreamt of having hair like Maria Shriver, but that was not in the cards.
I know you are wondering how I am going to segue this into talk about sugary treats…um, yeah, so am I.
So no clever transition, just a hopeless rant about my hair.
It was a bad hair day and it was on my mind.
Moving on…
Spongebob.
I got an order a while back for a Spongebob cupcake cake and never posted it….
Hope the little guy had a great birthday.
And by the way…
My husband just read this post and said….”Really?  Your hair is the bane of your existence?  Not communism or genocide?” 
This just proves that men do not understand…or that I am just not that deep 😉

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Cute cake, but I still use huge bows every day… I don't think it's weird. Granted, I am stilla teen, so it doesn't look as strange as it would on an adult, but…:(

Your Sponge Bob is perfect!!! Wow!

I have CURLY, curly hair…my hairdresser just told me this week that the texture is "unique." (I think that was a vague insult.) I fought it for years…and I LOVED Elizabeth Shue, too! She was cool and her hair was poofy like mine. Well, hers looked good! 😉

Thanks for the hair memories!!!

I am sooooo with you on this post. It always amazes me how we can be judged simply from the perceptions on our blogs or online. I so had my banana clips and man didnt I think they were cool? I loved the honesty in this post. I have so many shortcomings as a mommy. I am glad to know I am not alone. 🙂 Thank you for being brave enough to make me feel ok!
Well said. 🙂
Ps. I am planning to make some of the hot cocoa sticks- darling!

Oh men…i mean, we can only care about more IMPORTANT things if we look good enough to face the world. I mean, we have to feel good first…no? 🙂 Gorgeous cake though Spongebob isn't quite gorgeous but cute instead.

Thanks everybody for the great comments!
And btw, I will never post pictures of my middle school hair disaster days. The only way that would happen is is I am drunk blogging (don't know if that's a real thing), but since I am not a big drinker that will most likely not happen 😉
As for the tutorial on cupcake cakes, that's more of a possibility!

I have to say…and I feel pretty confident that I am not alone in this… that I think the only way this post could be better was if there was a photo of each corresponding hair style that was talked about! Its all about visuals!! LOL Men will never understand, but just as a good cut and style can make you feel like the hottest woman on the block so can a bad hair day just give you that all day funk that you can't shake no matter how hard you try! Oh and sponge Bob looked Awesome! Ur my… Read more »

I just watched Adventures in Babysitting last night for the first time! And I was noticing all the 80's styles and laughing.

I understand about your hair. I have a curly hair and when I was a kid my mom did NOT know how to style it, so she brushed the curls out into frizzy kinks. In every picture from childhood I look like a frazzled mess!

Nowadays, if it wasn't for a hair dryer, round brush, and chi I don't think I would be able to go out in public 🙂

While I never rocked the side pony, I did have a banana clip, but my worst hair sin? Bangs. On a girl with hair as curly and frizzy as mine, you can just imagine the horror!

ha, you crack me up!! I most certainly had a scrunchy in every color, and I was a big fan of the "side pony". You know, the pony tail that you awkardly put on the side of your head, right above your ear! WTF was I thinking! I have major Kate Beckensale hair envy! The cupcake cake looks absolutely amazing!
