Embrace the Camera - New Hair

Wow, Thursday already. This has been a crazy fast week.

Monday was obviously Valentine's Day. We celebrated with our girl and food. Surprise.

the "heart" is our baby's booty stamped in paint :)

Eric grilled steaks. It was almost therapeutic to smell the smoke coming out of the grill again. I made salad and twice-baked new potatoes. MMM.


I had chocolate covered strawberries from my dad for dessert.


Then Tuesday we had the annual Love Feast at my husband's grandma's house. She makes cheeseburgers, potato salad, baked beans and red velvet cake. Sorry, no pics from that so you'll have to take my word for it that it was delicious.

Sweet P had a rough time with her morning nap on Wednesday and the rest of the day was a blur as I prepared for our evening activity. Nana watched P and the husband and I spent time with other adults and it included Mexican food. Delicious again.

And now it's Thursday! That means it's time to "Embrace the Camera."










One with me and my new 'do! I had to capture my hair this week because it has new color (lighter to lessen the paleness of my face from the lack of sun) and it's fixed (um, because this is when I got home from the salon). Amazing but it will most likely go back to ponytails and hats.



And one with dad from the blizzard days. They were both napping and she was holding his finger. Love.



And now I'm off to enjoy the beautiful weather!! Our yard last Wednesday and a high of 17 degrees.



And yesterday! No snow and back to the 70s!



I like you again, Oklahoma.

  20. Your hair looks great! I've been contemplating lightening mine up a bit as well. It always seems so dull in the winter. I think I just might go ahead and get it done!
