Day #2 swim lessons = success.
Brooke has now rocked holding her breathe under water but…
we are still learning the whole goggle thing.
Knox has started playing with my hair whenever he is right next to me. I love it.
He also got up this high on the rock wall all by himself!
Love her little post-swim curls!
Water fights in the backyard have begun.
I sat outside while the kids were out running around and Beretta really wanted me to play fetch with her. I really just wanted my apple with peanut butter but I played some fetch too. It has been so long since we have had almond butter, I need to change that. While I do really love normal peanut butter, almond butter has my whole heart.
My sister gave me the best birthday present ever (it just took us a little while for me to get over there to redeem the coupon:). She fixed my hair up. It also meant that we had 2 hours to just sit there and talk to each other which is our favorite. PS Andrew and I bought a new camera. Between the two of us, we had three old cameras and we ended up selling them on Craigslist and making more than enough from the old cameras to buy a new one. We got the Sony Alpha a6300. I’m in love with it. Andrew is friends with a really famous photographer (Chris Burkard) and he recommended this one for us and we read all about it… perfect.
My sister started by coloring the roots (aka my grey hairs:) and then she added in some natural looking highlights.
She uses this cool little thing that looks like a straightening iron to give instant highlights. So your hair doesn’t sit in the foils for so long… just while you go over the foil with this wand. It was crazy.
My sister also added some toner to the ends of my hair because they were kind of a copper tone. Thank goodness my sister knows how to do all of this stuff because I am pretty clueless with hair. This stuff below is something that always reminds me of my sister. She has been using it since high school. She puts it on wet or dry hair and it makes your hair so incredibly smooth and shiny.
Finished product. I don’t remember the last time I had my hair done (ehhh… years?!) so I was pretty excited about it. Thanks sissy, you are the best.
Came back home and couldn’t stop snacking on these. Andrew got them from Mer for his bday and what’s his is mine right?
We had our favorite salmon and honey balsamic brussel sprouts for dinner. I am very grateful that Andrew and I have very similar tastebuds when it comes to making dinner at home.
And did some reading before bed.
I came across all of these different egg varieties for Easter….
Which one do you prefer? Reese’s, Twix, Butterfinger or Snickers eggs?
Have a camera that you love? What kind?
Do you color your hair? Do you stick to the same thing or switch things up often?
A question I would love to know, when you run… what are your hands doing. Carrying anything? Are they loose or do you clench them or hold them loosely?
