Getting Silly

Yes, it's true. I'm a sucker for the latest trend. No, I don't have kids at home as an excuse.

Today my friend Jill and I went out at lunch to purchase two packages of silly bandz. At first I thought these were ridiculous. Maybe they are. But it's okay. I used to rock jelly bracelets, have garbage pail kids, beanie babies and wreck myself over cabbage patch kids. Trends come and go, but we always remember them, no matter how ridiculous they seem in retrospect. It's all about the fun at the time.

So what if I'm over 30 and trading plastic bands with my friends who are also over 30? It's amazing how many people are into this right now no matter what age. It's been kind of fun topic of conversation in the office when asked what silly band would best represent you?

Plus, it'll make for a really fun theme party soon. Cocktails and trading silly bandz. Come on what's not to love?

Here is the collection so far.My mission is to find a nail polish bottle.

Don't worry, I haven't lost my mind, I promise. It may just be the extreme temperatures outside. :)

My niece is obsessed, and so were all my students! Luckily the trend was just catching on when I left! My co-teachers stole so many of them from the kids, because they were causing problems!

My niece is here for the summer, I'll see if she has a nailpolish bottle for you :)

p.s. you're too cute!

My friend bought the knockoffs...and it was close to impossible to figure out the creatures. Those are MUCH better!
