Easter Memories: Sponge Rollers and Hair Woes

At Blissdom this year, Hershey's kicked off the Easter season with a Virtual Bunny Trail. Its a  link up our favorite memories, traditions and Holiday tips to share! They also let us create a virtual Easter basket filled with Hershey's goodness to send home. It was there that I realized that Hershey's really does make all the good candy! Don't even get me started on the amazing ration of peanut butter to chocolate in the Reeses eggs...

I have very fond Easter memories from growing up. 
My sister's and I always had froofy dresses with matching bows and we always wore our pearls. 
(I'm in the middle. And I totally have middle child syndrome.)

We colored Easter eggs at my Granny's house almost every year. 
Don't be jealous of my insanely fashionable outfit at the tender age of 5.

But, my most frequent memory, was my love/hate relationship with the pink sponge rollers.

I BEGGED for them every year. My Mom would even take them to my Grandparents house so I wouldn't be without amazing hair on Easter, no matter where we were.

Unfortunately, they seem to be a staple of every Easter picture for multiple years in a row.

And those things made sleeping a complete misery. But I told myself, "beauty hurts" and would take the pain for 1 night.

The problem is, this was the result of those rollers. Every.Single.Year.

I never liked the way my hair looked when the rollers came out, so this is how our family Easter picture always looked. Lovely, huh?

I guess I don't learn easily, because with any mention of Easter, I was pulling out the bag of pink sponginess and planning my day of absolute beauty. And if I ever have a girl, you better believe there will be sponge rollers in her future. 

Because its tradition.

  1. Oh. Emm. Gee. You were the cutest!!! And Casey looks exactly the same! I love it.

    The pink rollers? Were a staple in my childhood beauty routine too. Every Saturday night, my hair was rolled for church. Any family function? Rollers. Pageant? Rollers.
    I think J's hair is FINALLY thick enough to be able to use them. It's a rite of passage to sleep in those things.

  3. Oh wow. Too funny. I too spent many nights in pink sponge rollers. I even have a set now!

    Did you hate it so much you brushed it out? It looks poofy rather than curly.

    Reese's eggs. Just ate one yesterday. Ugh- those little devil bombs.

    I think I'm getting an "Easter dress" again this year! :)

  6. I LOVE that first pic - those smocked dresses are darling! My family had three girls as well, so I have a ton of pictures like that one ;) And I definitely remember the pink sponge rollers - those things hurt! I wore them pretty often, but my mom LOVED perming our hair...I think I had my first perm when I was 3, yikes.

  7. I'm dying! This is my first visit to your blog and I was instantly sent back to my childhood Easters. I have 2 sisters as well and we would line up to get our pink sponge curlers in our hair Easter Eve.. HILARITY!

  8. The photo of Casey, you and Whitney is exactly how I remember you guys when I first met your family at Brownsville. You might've been a little older by then, but you girls were still so young. It's so cool to see all of you all grown up and with your own families now. I suppose I should buy some pink sponge rollers for my girls too. Every girl needs to have that experience! Happy Easter!
