Okay so this post is for all you mama's who don't have time to do your hair in them morning with your little one(s) running around!  That was me until just last week... the most I could do for myself is shower, get dressed, and maybe put a little makeup on, but when it came time to do my hair... my little monster was done waiting on me so up went my wet hair into one of those half pulled through ponytails. 

Pre-baby I always curled my hair with a curling iron... I love my hair when it's curled and so does my husband.  WELL... I found a new way to get beautiful curls with an effort of only about 30 seconds!  Have any of you ever heard of the "Sock Bun"?  Well this is brand new to me and I cannot believe the result... I'll post a video at the end of my post but basically you take a sock, snip off the part where your toes go and roll it up into a doughnut.  Then you roll your hair into the sock tube from the end of a pony tail... sleep in it over night and in the morning... voila!

Honestly as much as I LOVE these sock bun curls... the real discovery I made was showering at night.  This was something I NEVER did... I never knew how much it would help a homemaker like me.  Showering at night, while my husband is bathing our little man, completely changes my morning routine into a simple 5 to 10 minute process instead of an hour long struggle.  When I wake up in the morning all I have to do is brush my teeth, wash my face, dab on a little makeup, throw some clothes on and... take out the sock bun and I'm ready to go!  With hair looking as though I spent a good 30 minutes to an hour curling it!  I could wake up just 5 to 10 minutes before baby boy and be completely ready by the time he wakes up!

This may seem like a silly post to some but I had to share this experience in case there are any brand new homemakers/mommies out there reading this.  It is very difficult for some to focus on themselves and get showered and ready every single day with kiddos running around.  My son is going on two years old and I have struggled that entire time in getting my self ready each day looking and feeling pretty.  I think doing that for yourself is SO important and can make a woman feel so much better about herself.  And I can't believe something so simple as showering at night and this sock bun could do that for me and completely change my life.

I hope this helps someone out there like it helped me! :) http://threeyearsofdeath.blogspot.com/2011/07/easy-no-heat-curls.html
