Katie and I rented Hairspray the other day. She had already seen and it and loved it and said I should watch it. I loved it to. (Yes, both the soundtrack and dvd are on my 'to-buy' list.) We were also inspired to try beehives.
It wasn't too terribly difficult to pull off. In fact, they were so cool that we dressed up in retro clothes and took pictures. Enjoy our fun!
