Little things

Little things

Once I started sharing here, I have felt pressured to do things that I wouldn’t normally do – I wear makeup more often, style my hair, take pictures, little things, thinking, maybe I could get a good picture for the blog. Often I don’t, lol, […]

Happy Father’s Day!

I promise I’ll keep it short. Check out our new vid! The companion dvd has been totally redone and the book is a soft bound 100 glossy pages of locs done by us and fellow DIYers. If you have any questions after purchasing the system, we […]

Get out there

A couple years after I graduated, I started to feel a little lost. The job I had always wanted wasn’t as much fun as I had hoped. After working so hard through school, I felt like I had arrived and the destination was… underwhelming.

So I made a list. What was it, that I wanted to say I had done by the time I turned 30. While a couple of those things that were important at the moment had fallen by the wayside, I had done all but 2 items with 10 months to go. One thing I wanted to do was to have a sport. I feel I can be more physically active if I have a goal (other than looking hot) to work for, or be part of a team. That’s really why I joined some ladies from church to do the Dirty Girl.
Before the Mud Run
And it was AWESOME. I already can’t wait to do it again next year, and I’m signed up to do another mud run in a couple weeks. I hate running, but I love mud, and sweat. I wasn’t sure I could do it (3 miles isn’t that hard though) and I was afraid I’d be left behind in the mud by myself, but my team was there with me.MudRun

I dare you all to make a list, and get out there.

Let’s do better

I had started to daydream as I looked out of the huge window on a perfect sun filled day enjoying my lunch. A friend walked up and we chatted awhile, I can’t remember about what really, when she asked me if I were wearing a […]

Quick updates new vid!

This has been such a crazy week, so many new and exciting things on the horizon. I woke up this morning feeling more alive than I’ve been feeling for days, so as I rolled over and grabbed my phone to see today’s tidbits , I […]

Catching my Breath

Catching my Breath

Life has been so busy lately, I feel like I need a break. It seems like I do a little work, try and take care of my family, work on my home and the day is gone, with nothing ever feeling finished. I joke all the time what I wouldn’t give for a solid 7 hours of sleep. On the other hand, just the other day I found myself with two hours between appointments, and I was so anxious to get through the next task I couldn’t relax.

Trip to the zoo

I often hear that I should enjoy this busy time while my boys are little. I do try and just take a deep breath. I get my camera out and get some video of the boys playing with their trains so I can remember what their little voices sound like one day. Or I’ll hand them our old point and shoot and watch them try and take pictures of themselves, each other, or the dust bunnies under the bed. Even while I’m out trying to get some exercise, I’ll stop to take a picture of a neighbor’s poplar tree in bloom. Every little bit helps.
