Girls’ Hair Cut Day!

Changing to a new hairstyle is often that breath of fresh air that you need. Walking out of the salon with a fun new cut always adds a little extra spring to your step and boost to your confidence. It can also be an outward expression of inner change. If you have major changes taking place in your life, consider heading to the salon to help reflect them in your appearance. A haircut can transform your outlook and confidence during a time when you may need it the most, check in Charle a Hair Studio for hairstyles information, new wigs or haircuts.

Do you loathe the hassle of your hair in the mornings, watching the clock tick by as you deal with your mangled mess? Get a haircut. A good style may not be able to add more loving and fruitful years to your life, but it certainly will add sleep to your morning.

The girls have been excited for today to arrive.  They were both ready to get their hair cut.  I don’t know about your kids, but I swear the hair on my kids’ heads grows faster in the summer!

Here is a before shot of the three of us.  Notice how long Rylee’s hair is here!

Here are shots of the cuts, the girls were both great and sat very still and did what they were told.











Here are the after shots. Let’s just say that there was A LOT of hair on the floor at the end of it all!







For those of you really paying attention….yes…my hair is MUCH shorter!




I Needed A Project

Being out of work for a few months is not something that agrees with me at all.  I start to get stir crazy and eventually I find a project to tackle.  Something small, that won’t cost a lot and can be done in a few days.  The last time I was unemployed I organized the pantry and I’m still enjoying it, sometimes I do other things like remodeling the bathroom,  and I know we can browse around here to find the best services for this.

This time I set my sights on a project that was bigger and would require me to do something that I really hate doing – painting.  I decided to change up the playroom.  I was tired of looking at this all the time.

When we first got our house at, I really wanted to get rid of the shelves that we’ve been using to hold all kinds of stuff for the girls.  So off we went to Ikea.  I had an idea of what I wanted and actually thought I knew exactly what I’d buy.  But then I found something even better than what I had envisioned.  And to sweeten the deal, it was on clearance so we got it for a great price!  I have to give a big thanks here to my 16 year old neighbor Molly who came over to help me with the final steps in building it.

Next on the list was deciding on a new color for the walls. For two girls, that blue had to go! I wasn’t really sure what I wanted and of course the girls requested PINK!!!  However, Bill was having no discussions about pink paint in there.  He had a valid point, we’d just have to paint it again in few years and well….see above for how I feel about that!

After Bill did some tooling around with colors we finally decided on ‘Restful’ from Sherwin Williams.  We felt it complimented the Down Home color on the other walls in the common area of the house which can also be decorated with glow in the dark garden pebbles.

The girls love telling everyone who will listen about their ‘new’ playroom.  Here is the finished product.
