An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

Friends with clean hair

  • Love the photo, I always love candid shots…

  • like the way you’ve both got yr hair behind the same ear – and is that the same top?

  • carolina

    I always wanted to live next door to my best friend. Oh yea and nice picture!

  • That is a great picture! Having great girlfriends is just the best!

    And…happy belated birthday to Leta. Thanks for sharing her with us!

  • Kassi

    …or maybe you both have been caught sitting in a baby pool filled with green jello. Your smiles could be of embarrassment..we will never know.

  • Melynda

    Hey Dooce! Once again your advertisement for the Nikon D70 has persuaded another reader to go buy one! My husband and I just got back from getting one! (now I have to wait for the battery to charge before I can take any pictures! OH THE TORTURE!) hehehe
    I still think Nikon should pay you some fat cash for advertising like you do!! 😉
    Hope you and the fam have a great weekend!

  • Kassi

    It makes me wonder what you are seeing that is so funny…maybe there is something completely lewd happening outside of the frame of the camera lense…if only the photographer of this picture would have panned to the right a bit more…

  • Bodnoirbabe

    Love the hair. You guys look like you’re having such a wonderful time!

  • I need to wash my hair.

  • Cheryl

    Isn’t this an advertisement for Brite Smile? or is it Pantene?

    Sometimes it just feels better to have clean hair!

  • Lots of shiney hair.

    I know this is a little late, but I’ve been out of the loop for a while: Happy Birthday Leta!

    Your year letter made me cry. It’s so sweet and amazingly honest.

    I love that you are honest about parenting and life.

  • yay! Smiles for everyone! (You guys both have nice teeth! haha sorry for the random teeth-comment!)

  • Great smiles!

  • great friends
    great smiles

    Great picture. Looks like you ladies are having a fabu time!

  • Most of my friends should be committed, too.

  • Cindy

    What a beautiful smile, Heather.

    It looks as if it is from the inside out.

  • Dooce & Beth. What a great pic!

  • Awwwh, this is a cute picture! Friends are awesome.

  • Dr. J Fever- i like it.

    Beth: “I’m a little bit county…”

    Dooce: “I’m a little bit rock-n-roll..”

    Cute picture. Thanks Beth for the long walk to Heather’s.

  • Ada


    What do you think of trying a face transformer? It’s hilarious.

  • Southern Fried Girl

    I love pics where Heather smiles. Y’all look too cute together. 🙂

  • I love seeign pics of you guys together, you always look so happy and relaxed. I get the feeling that whenever Heather and Beth get together all they do is laugh. Have you guys checked out the pictures over at from her visit over there? All smiles as well.

  • Well, we can’t see Beths now CAN we….

  • Annejelynn

    ahhh, BFF.

    Keep smilin’! and have a WOOONDerfool weekend!

  • You washed your hair AND brushed your teeth. In my world, that’s quite an accomplishment!

  • Miz Striz — you are correct that they don’t have the requisite squint goin’ on for them to be down with the chronic.

    Mescaline, however, is still not out of the question.

  • Or ecstasy, but then they would be sucking on stuff.

  • Me Now

    Secty mamas!

  • I love the fact that y’all are such good friends. And that Beth is Leta’s goddess of love.

  • I think someone farted and thats why they are laughing.

  • *Bucky*
    *_Do you see the whites of their eyes? Yeah, they are whit AND you can see them. Unless they are doing visine drops then I would say not smoking, all thought maybe smoking hot._*

  • Andrea in Canada

    Dooce, what a great shot of two people who share a great friendship!

    Beth is laughing hysterically at something and you look like a baby in a photo where an adult is dangling a stuffy over their head to make you smile! What I’m trying to say is, you look CUTE! You are such a beautiful woman!

    What is it that was so funny?

  • Bethy

    She looks like she always has clean hair, it’s you with the almost always pulled back pony tail that is highly questionable..

  • Happy belated birthday to Leta! How come there’s only 45 comments? If this was a picture of Leta or Jon, there would be about 350,000.

  • Identical twins separated at birth are reunited in this undated file photo.

  • Cuz normally your hair is dirty and this was a momentous noteworthy occasions? :0P

  • Ah, the Black Sweater Club rides again.

  • They hold tryouts for the Osmonds? Can I be the naughty fat one? Oh wait…..

  • Ana

    Great picture. 😀

  • Cauri

    Aww you two are so adorable!! What a great picture

  • Awww I’m feeling the love 🙂

  • That is committment. My friends wouldnt walk here, there is still about 2 feet of snow in Boston and they all live more than 1 mile away, but still.

  • Darling! Just darling!

  • You guys look like you’re having a great time. My favorite kind of picture.

  • Sarah Grace

    You guys look like you’re having a wonderful time.

    Young and in love!

  • RazDreams

    “you…light up MY LIFE!” and “Your eyes, your eyes, they tell me how much YOU CAAARRREEE, whoa-oh yeah…”

    My childhood “be fri/st end” and I used to dress alike too, and stand next to one another with one arm slung over the other person shoulders, smiling like Cheshire cats…

  • You two look like you’re in a General Foods International Coffee commercial and somebody just said “JEAN LUC!” and then they yelled, “CUT” because they have to re-shoot because you guys will NOT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.

  • Elegant Goose

    Happy Birthday to little Leta… she’s really not that little though. It’s been amazing watching the changes she (and you!) have gone through in the past year. It’s been a treat to watch and it has totally helped me see what kind of mom I want to be when I get around to, you know, the whole kids thing. 😛

  • Gee, your hair smells terrific.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
