Just a warning that this post is a little of this and little of that with a lot of randomness with no connection at all.
Things making me happy this month:
Picked this up while waiting in line at Nordstrom Rack...
It is a perfect match for a non lipstick wearing girl, but one who needs a little color to make her look alive.
May I also just add that I don't know why I used to shop at Nordstrom and pay full price for everything? I go to the Rack and buy all my boys' clothes and save soooo much money. I usually find a little something something for myself too. I'm learning that mama needs to look good in order to feel good. I think I was just in survival mode with having my 3 boys, barely 5 years apart total, for the last 3 years.
I'm seeing the light, my friends. And it feels good.
And well, this, I can't say enough about this. I may or may not always have enough time to wash my hair in the morning. Just keeping it real. A quick spray of this dry shampoo and the problem is solved...
So I am feeling the need of a change with my hair. It is super long and winds up in the same old same old ponytail everyday. Besides the fact that my hair is half curly/half straight and requires a long blow drying session and a flat iron, I'm just really bored with it. Our friendship is strained.
I've always been a risk taker with my hair. That's the only area in my life that I take risks. But as I get older, I feel less confident with hair risks. It has become somewhat of a security blanket. And the hubby likes it long. Don't all guys? Grrrr...the pressure to please.
So this is what it looks like...
I really want to do this...
I've been secretly drooling over her cut for months. What do you think? Will I regret it? I've always donated my hair in the past, but I have bleach in it now so I can't. Hmmm...that takes away part of my reasoning. Help me pick which side of the fence I should be on with this one please.
And if I so happen to stick with the long same old hair, I bought this...
Hey, if I can keep the long mess of hair stick straight with shine like that, then maybe I can make up with the hair and be friends again.
It can't just be all about me. I was at Target looking for this new shampoo for kids...
It is made without harmful chemicals and it smells so yummy. They were out so I bought Suave Soothers (sorry, no pic). I have to admit that I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to kid products. I like it to be as natural as possible, but two kids were whining, fighting, and causing me to wish for death (for me) so I bought it in coconut and dashed. It makes me want to pour it into a tall pina colada glass, add a colorful umbrella, and drink it up.
I won't though. I'm sure that wouldn't turn out well.
So I'm feeling old lately due to my creaky left knee when I run. However, admitting that there was a problem was my 1st step. Then I actually purchased one of these...
Yep, it is majorly ugly and shouts "look at me, I'm injured", but it does the trick so it makes me happy.
Lastly, I need your thoughts on homeschooling. Our oldest attends a wonderful public school. However, there is a super cool program where I can send him to school 3 days a week and homeschool 2 days a week. I like that we can enjoy a curriculum that allows more flexibility, field trips, and extras like foreign language and music. Plus, I could put my teaching experience to use again.
What's a girl to do? He's happy where he is and doing wonderfully. He says he wants to do the homeschool option, but I worry. As a kid with Asperger's he has made great strides. He has buddies, participates in class discussions, and is overall thriving. I guess we can always switch back, right?
Hope your March is off to a great start. I'm linking up to Heather's Life Made Lovely Monday here. Come on over and take a look at many lovely posts.
