Weekly Randoms

This week has been super crazy to say the least. I've had sessions the past 2 days with one more tomorrow. I'm really thankful to be so busy, but it makes it hard to do the "mom" things I need to be putting first. My house is a disaster and it's been pretty hectic to get Wyatt taken care of during my sessions. Morgan has been really busy with taking care of chickens and getting our farm ready to close. On top of that, we have a bean crop at 3 different farms that needed to be sprayed this week! Fortunately, my mother-in-law was able to take care of Wyatt today and my sweet Granny is going to keep him tomorrow while I finish up my last session of the week. I'm definitely looking forward to a fun-filled and relaxing holiday weekend!

Wyatt has been really enjoying swimming lessons! I was able to take a few pictures (on my phone of course) Monday. He did really well, but he's so shy I don't think he said 2 words to Mrs. Donna Jo, his swimming instructor! Hopefully he will break out of his shell before the week is over. She is so sweet and does a great job teaching the kids in a way that they will feel comfortable and understand.

At the end of the lesson, she lets each of the kids take 2 turns jumping off of the diving board. Wyatt really likes this part! I think he feels like one of the big kids :)

On another note, today after my session in Huntsville, I ran a few errands to get some things that I was out of. I've been using Morgan's cheap shampoo for the past week because I was out of my Redken. Now, I'm usually not a product snob, but when it comes to my hair, I can't just use anything. I have super wavy, frizzy hair if I don't use the right product and I've looked like a hot mess for as long as I could stand it! haha. I was thrilled to find that the beauty supply store I use was having a HUGE sale today! I love nice surprises like that. Since I'm a licensed cosmetologist, I'm able to shop wholesale, so it is pretty reasonable to buy good products, but today was even half of what I'm used to paying!!

While I was there, I came across these 2 little cuties that were just calling my name!! I've been wanting a grey polish for a while and this was exactly what I was looking for. I'm a huge fan of OPI polish and I'm such a sucker for their awesome names! These two are 'It's Totally Fort Worth It' and 'Houston We Have a Purple'. Shout out to Texas, y'all! haha.

These liters were only $7 with another $1 off at the register! Liters for $6......SCORE!! I bought the last shampoo they had and 2 conditioners. The combo packs of Smooth Down shampoo and conditioner were $8 with $1, so I got 2 for $7! I'm never one to seem to find good deals, but I was pretty happy with my finds today.

I've been wanting to try a new hairspray because I wasn't too happy with the one I was using before. I thought I would try this Catwalk Straight hairspray. I tried it out tonight and I LOVE it! Not only does it smell awesome, but it isn't too sticky and very flexible. It wasn't on sale, but hey, if it works I'll take it!

Tonight, we went to a local pizza restaurant here on the square downtown with our friends, the Kennedys. Morgan and I went last week and it was so nice! They have a couple of guys who play live music and it is just a great kid-friendly environment. The food is awesome and it is really nice to get out of the house in the middle of the week. I think we will make this a weekly outing!

Totally random post, I know! Sometimes it just works out that way :) Looking forward to the holiday weekend and all the fun things we have planned!

  1. Yum, we all LOVE Village Pizza!

    And that's totally the same place me & Chels (& everyone I know) took swimming lessons when we were little - my favorite part was always jumping off the diving board at the end!

    And I just LOVE getting new products - it makes me all giddy!
