1, 2, 3 Balayage


Jessica had really been wanting to balayage or ombre her hair. I said lets do it! Why not? How I managed to actually talk her into letting me do her hair and not go to the salon is beyond me. And, not gonna lie, I questioned my ability to pull off said feat. I'm still shocked! She must trust me or something. But you know what? It worked out, like really well. And we ended up spending less than $20. It was a total win.

I No Longer Use Cooking Spray


All aboard! This train is leaving. 
I have officially given up cooking spray. There is not a drop of it in my house. Why? I'm trying to feed my children whole real foods. Don't get me wrong, you can still find a box of Lucky Charms on occasion. My pantry isn't free of all that is wrong and evil. I'm just taking small steps here and there to try and do better for me and my kids.

I feel like I've done pretty much all there is to grow my hair long, thick and healthy. Today I'm going to discuss my top five actions to get amazing results, like crazy thick wild hair kinda results.

Life Experience. 50 Shades of Gray Hair.


So, my original thought on gray hair was to color it until you die or at least up into your 60s. I'm so seriously reconsidering this. (by the way...I'm only 43) I think I had it all wrong. I know I had it all wrong. I'm actually tired of coloring my hair. I can't take it anymore. I bought a box last week of dye and I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It takes time, money, energy that I don't want to give. My hair grows so damn fast that I currently color my hair every three weeks. But honestly, I should be coloring it every two weeks. I mean, really, after two weeks? I have to do it all over again? I finally said no way. I'm done. At least, I think I am. This life experience may all go to shit and end up in the trash. Or I may end up unapologetically happy. I'm hoping for the latter.

Super quick and easy to get there, from practically anywhere in the state. No need to buy tickets, no need to make reservations weeks in advance, no need to plan. You can literally get up and go. And know that you will have a wonderful fun filled family trip on the cheap.  We have been to Galveston more times than I can say. And the best thing about it... we come home closer and bonded for the experience.
