Preschool + pampering = good times!


Yesterday marked the 1st of preschool for my little guy! He's been paitently waiting for his day in the sun and to be some what as grown up as his big sis - this was the day! He LOVED every minute of it and thinks it's so cool to be able to have his "own school". He picked out his own "Superman" backpack to buy a few weeks ago and got to help gather up his school supplies. He picked out his own shirt to wear on the first day as well. He's getting to BIG to FAST!!! How does that happen? and is seems everyone kids do it! LOL



After my hubby and I had dropped him off and we arrived back home I took a moment and realized and quiet and still it was on the house with both of the kids gone on a weekday! Well the quiet and stillness didn't last long! I headed straight for the stereo - tuned it into my favorite station and turned it up!!!!! Not disney tunes, toddler songs or anything else that is usually playing around here AND in the car but something I liked! woohooo!



Don't get me wrong - I love being a Mom - but every good mom needs a little time to refuel once in awhile. So after some quick clean up around the house I headed for my appointment to get my hair done! It's get to not have to worry about finding a babysitter in the middle of day.




I had to get my cut shaped up and then I wanted to go darker for Fall with my color as well. My hairstylist weaved in 3 different colors - A dark brown, a Honey and reddish color. The combination is really pretty - I'm just still getting used to it a bit. ;) Of course I wouldn't leave you hangin' without a picture!

wow! Your freshed up hairstyle is super cute, chic, stylish...love the rich color. I'm totally saving this picture for when I go back in a couple weeks for a "trim"!

I *think* I've seen that smokin' yellow jacket on another hot momma lately... ;o)

Okay, lastly...your little man is positively heartmelting. I'm not sure I could part ways with him even for half a second. :o)

Ahh, he's a cutie! I hear you on the radio. I have been telling my kids for weeks now that the dvd player in my car is broken, just because I want to hear some tunes myself, and the fact that they argue so much about what they are going to watch. Very cute hair and color!

Oooohhhh, a day with no toddler tunes!! I can't even imagine!!

I love your hair! The colors are radiant!!

thanks everyone! I really the like the versatility of the long front pieces. in the picture they are tucked back which makes my hair look alot shorter. When I have them pulled forward it's a totally different look! I'm all for versatility - even with my hair do! LOL
