Peek of the Week - April 22, 2011

'zat time again!

Our new Friday feature - the Peek of the Week - is all about you. I want to hear (and share with my readers) what wowed you this week. It could be a cool finished project, a work in progress, a personal accomplishment, a cute kid moment, or something that surprised you.

If we could peek into your week - what would you want to show us?

Each week I'll share my Peek of the Week to get the ball rolling, and invite you to link to your own blog posts about your own Peek of the Week. I know y'all are up to cool stuff - we wanna see it!

Here's my peek:

This week I took mullet matters into my own hands.

Be-fro, I mean before. (aside: I did have a tiny twinge of regret when I went back to find a before photo and saw these beautiful curls)

Benefit from my wisdom here: Don't consider attempting any such feat on a toddler unless you give him a ticky-to-eat frozen treat. An organic whole fruit push pop is just the ticket. Keeps said toddler occupied and makes his shirt sticky so the hair will have somewhere to stick.

A straw prolongs the period of occupation at least two fold. But you're smart to save it until you're about half done and the child begins to get fidgety.

He had no idea he was being groomed. My ruse was a grand success.

And I gotta say, I didn't do half bad. He's still got some curl, but less snarl in the back. It's easy to fix and still cute as a button. Is your mullet getting outta control? Come on over - I've gotta push pop with your name on it!

Now it's your turn!
How it works:
1. Each Friday I'll post my peek of the week, and give you space to link us up to yours.
2. Blog about your Peek of the Week - whatever it is. Whatever happened that made you proud, laugh, smile, inspired, excited, or just plain happy - now that's worth sharing.
3. Include a link to this blog or put the Peek of the Week button (on the sidebar) in your post.
4. Link your blog post using the InLinkz button below.
5. Visit some of the other linked posts to see what folks are glowing about this week.
Leave them some comment love and expect some to be coming your way.

If you don't get a chance to get here on Friday, feel free to link your post up later.
The InLinkz button will be active for 5 days.
