Oh my word. I think I over did it today. I just sat down and my back and legs are so tired! At least the house is clean, last load of laundry is in the dryer, I’m 3/4 done with the DCC Holiday Issue, and tomorrow we get our new puppy! Oh yea!!! How great will this weekend be?! The boys are staying the night with GramGram tonight. I’m leaving bright and early in the morning to meet the lady with Juno. She is in Northwest Arkansas and was nice enough to meet us about 1/4 of the way. It knocks about an hour off the 4 hour drive. I’ve got the crate ready, a blanket, pee pad in case of accidents or car sickness (Lucy gets extremely car sick…hoping this one is a better passenger), collar and leash. I hope I’m not forgetting anything, but no worries. I’m just so ready to go…I hope I can get some sleep tonight. I hate when you are anxiously waiting and you lay in bed all night just tossing and turning! Super annoying!!! Maybe since I’m so worn out from house work and running around today, I’ll sleep like a baby. I can only hope.
OH! I wanted to share something with you guys! Lately, I’d say within the last few months, I’ve had oily hair. Not really all over…just at my roots. It’s like I could wash my hair, blow dry it, and it seemed like my roots were never washed. It was extremely annoying. My hair has never been that way. I couldn’t even wear my hair down, because I was afraid it was so obvious that it was embarrassing. So…what do I do? Well first I switched shampoo and conditioner thinking that would solve the problem. Wrong! It didn’t do anything. I was bummed. I gave it a few weeks and by this time I was fed up. What did I need to do? Buy some pricey shampoo? As much as I love professional shampoo, it’s just not always in my budget. For my last attempt I went straight to Pinterest. Why didn’t I think of that 2 months ago? I searched and searched and read other people’s blogs and websites. One thing came across and was reasonably priced so I decided to try it. Others had said it worked well for them and at less than $5 a bottle I wasn’t losing much by giving it a try.
Here’s what I tried.
Let me just say….I freaking love this stuff. It works amazing!! I seriously could not be more impressed for it to cost a whopping $4 and some change. It says on the box to only use about once a week. It’s definitely not a shampoo you want to wash every day with. After one wash, I could tell it worked wonders. I waited a few days and gave it another wash and it is 100% back to where I wanted it to be. I am so happy to be able to straighten my hair and not pull it up in a bun or pony tail because my hair is nasty. Thank you Neutrogena!!
Here’s a picture from today after I straightened it.
I’ve been growing my hair out for a while now. I think the last time my hair was this long I was in 6th grade. Maybe elementary school…I don’t know. All I know is my hair finally feels good and I owe it all to Pinterest and this shampoo. Well and Jeremy….he actually bought the shampoo for me! If you’ve had hair problems like me, check this product out. I was skeptical, but it really works. It really gets all that build up that can leave your hair feeling gross and takes care of it in a jiffy. I found it at Target, but I’m sure most retailers carry it. It was a little hard to find, but just keep looking! It’s there somewhere.
Well, I better try to get some rest before my big day tomorrow. The boys are really looking forward to seeing their new puppy! I will make sure and post pictures tomorrow. Have a great weekend y’all!!
I’ve got a lot of work to do tonight before bed, so this won’t be long. I’ll just sum up our day today.
*Home school was a success. We learned about the days of the week with a fun new song and did some science activities on the computer.
*I got a lot done at work today…it’s been a little rough adjusting to the boys going with me. It was easier when I could go, get my work finished and leave. Now I’m constantly stopping here and there to do random things. It’ll get better.
*The boys got a lot of play time today. After work we hung around and I got some girl time with Michelle while they played with Amanda. They had a blast.
*We had pizza for dinner. It was good and I’ve been stuffed ever since.
*Right now, Jerms and I are watching The Walking Dead. We just started it on Netflix a few days ago. This show is nuts. Sometimes it’s a little to graphic for me. I’m not one who likes zombie shows, but this is like a bad wreck…you shouldn’t look, but you can’t stop staring! We’re on season 2 now. Any watchers?
*I decided today that I want to cut my hair. I don’t know if I will, but it’s getting on my last nerve. It’s so long, which I love, but it’s so annoying to flat-iron everyday. My hair is so thick. It’s not curly, but it has this wave (not a cute wave…totally worthless wave.) Jerms likes my hair long, so I’ll try to ride it out a little longer. Not sure how long that’ll last.
*I didn’t do the dishes today, so I’ll have a pile waiting on me in the morning. JOY!! It’s a good thing I’m off tomorrow! Well..sort of.
I gotta go. I’m exhausted and I still need to work on the magazine.
As I mentioned last night…we went to Frontier City today!
We had so much fun!
Frontier City was sold out today, so you can imagine how crowded it was. We didn’t get to ride as many rides as we’d hoped, but we still had a great time. Atticus isn’t much of a thrill seeker, so him and I sat and watched the others ride a few rides. As the boys were in the bath tonight I asked them what their favorite thing about today was. Bonus said “Water park!” Atticus said “Farris wheel!”
The water park is always a big hit with the kids. Today was a perfect day for it…It was so hot. Jeremy and I rode a few water slides, but there were so many kids running around that we decided it was best to hang out on the side lines today.
We spent a good 6 hours riding rides. Thank god it was not our running day! I seriously don’t know how I’m even awake right now. The heat is exhausting! I felt like no matter how much water I drank, it was never enough.
Looking forward to a good nights sleep, school with the boys, and running with Jeremy tomorrow.
Off to another great week! Enjoy your Monday everyone.
