Catch Up: First Haircut and 21 Months!

 Well, once again, I'm behind. Story of my life!

Lexi had her first haircut on December 28. (I know, it's February) We took her to a kid's salon in OP, Kansas and she loved it and did so well! She sat in a pink Cadillac and watched a movie while the sweetest girl cut her hair! She was done in like 8 minutes and it looked so cute. We didn't take much off because mommy couldn't part with the curls. We had the inverted bob going on, not on purpose, so we just evened it all out! Definitely a good experience! Here are the pictures!

Now, on to our big 21 month old! 
UGH! Where is this time going. LB has recently been doing so much and seeming SO grown up!

Lexi Belle, you are:
33 lbs
Size 2T-3T
Size 6-7 Shoe
Love Mac 'N Cheese
"No no"
"Don't do that" 
and a TON more, those are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head!

You are taking our hands and leading us to what you want. 
Usually it's the candy drawer!

You point at everything!

I'm starting to think about party number 2. Can't believe it's already almost here. 
Time sure does fly by!

Our Weekend in Instagram Pictures

Happy Tuesday!

We had an eventful weekend to say the least. 
We went back to Potosi for a wedding and had yesterday off!
Here are a few pics we snapped over the weekend. 

I got these BEAUTIFUL flowers from Robert on Valentine's Day! 
He sent some to Lexi Belle, too. Such a good daddy! She just wanted to smell them. 



We ate at Cracker Barrel on the way to Potosi and she found this horse and LOVED it.

She was so good at CB. She just sat there and played and ate a good breakfast, which is unusual!

and just a couple of random ones of LB and I.

 Let's talk about this crown. She found it at my in-laws and LOVED it. She didn't want to take it off!

It was a good weekend overall...

Loved spending it as our family of 3. :)

Big Hair Must Haves!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! 
We had a little family outing on Saturday to the KC Home Show! We had a great time walking around gathering TONS of ideas for our new home!! I can't wait to get started! It is almost overwhelming how much there is to think about! 
We went to RA and had sushi afterwards and Lexi acted like she knew just what to do! So funny. She had chicken tempura (chicken strips) and noodles!

This was Sunday before church. Lex was decked out for Valentine's Day!

Eating at Mexican on Friday night! Girlfriend LOVES her some chips and salsa!

Now on to the big stuff.

I've had some girls ask me how I get my big hair and for some tips. 
I could do a video, but I want to FIRST share my products that I have come to love and HAVE to have daily.

1. Bed Head Cocky--I put this on my hair before I blow dry. It helps "thicken" up your hair!
2. Aquage Uplifting Foam-- LOVE this stuff. Best root best ever. Promise.
3. Chi Silk Infusion-- This is a great serum that doesn't weigh your hair down. I use this right after I blow dry/before straightening.
4. I use both of these styles of teasing combs. My favorite is the second one. It's a triple layer comb that you can get from your stylist or from a beauty supply or Sally's.
5. Big Sexy Hair Powder Play-- This is probably my FAVORITE product. You sprinkle this on your roots and then massage it in with your fingers. It literally gives you enough lift that you can run your hands in your hair and 'pump' it up throughout the day! I LOVE THIS STUFF. Note: it probably works better with short hair. I'm sure it's great for long hair too, but I  think it works particularly great with short. 
6. Kenra 25- Best hair spray ever. I finish it off with this.
7. Tresemme Tres Two (green label)-- My go to hairspray. Cheap and great. I use this when teasing. It's not sticky and holds great!

Still with me? 

I hope this helps, girls! I swear by all of these products. Maybe I'll do a video soon of my whole routine. I would feel like a nerd doing so, but hey, if it helps--I'll do it. That's how I learned!

What are YOUR favorite products!??!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!

There's not much going on around here...but I thought I'd drop in and drop a couple pics of the weekend! If you follow me on IG, you have already seen these. Sorry peeps!

I think we are all FINALLY over this flu bug. Lexi had it on Tuesday...then gave it to me on Thursday and I'm pretty sure Robert has a mild case but hasn't been down and out like we have! Ugh! I hate being sick..and even more- I hate when LB is sick.  She didn't know what she was suppose to do? Throwing up? That's something new. Luckily, we are all on the mend!

How was YOUR weekend?
