Date night/Hair Modeling

The last post was starting to get too long for my liking, and this one will have quite a few pictures! I don't really know where to begin this post. January has been good so far. We like the new friends that we have made in Texas and are growing to like it more and more (especially the warm weather). Ask me this summer if I like the weather and I will probably be dying of heat! Well, a few weeks ago, my friend asked me if I would be interested in being a hair model. I have always hated my hair. In fact, if anyone asked "what part of your body do you hate the most?" I would always say "my hair!" Needless to say, I was kind of nervous. She took a picture of me and sent it in to see if I was someone that the company would be interested in...and guess what? I was! I went in on Saturday to get my hair done by this AWESOME stylist from Los Angeles. He made me feel good by telling me that I was the perfect natural blonde and that he was excited with what he was about to do. He ended up putting not one, but 3 colors of blonde into my hair and the "color personality" of Roman Goddess. He then cut my hair and told me not to touch it or wash it so that he could do what he wanted with it for the show the next day.

That night, I was feeling pretty good, so Christian and I went out with good friends to a really nice restaurant called Sorrento downtown. It was gorgeous inside with a pianist and low lights and candles. It has been so long since we have done something like that and it was so relaxing and fun!
The next morning, my friend took me to the hotel to get my hair and make up ready for the show. It was set up in curls, I was told, for a "madmen" look. I have never heard of or seen madmen, so I just assumed that it was going to be great. And, it was! I was in love with the style they gave me. I was a little nervous to try and act all confident and pose the right way, but once I got in front of lights and people, it ended up being way more fun than scary. Thanks to my husband for being with the kids by himself for 2 whole days so that I could have this experience. I am going to do it again soon!

Catch up

It has been over a month since I have written. Instead of telling every little thing that has happened, I will maybe just say the event and something about it, and then post pictures. First up, Christmas. There were way too many pictures taken on Christmas day, so I just picked a couple. Kennedy's favorite gifts were her Princess charm school barbies and her princess scooter. She has gotten really good at riding it too. Her and Liam were pretty spoiled and had so much fun opening their gifts and stockings. Liam's favorite gifts was his pack of Caillou DVD's, his ride on ATV and his tow truck. He crashed a lot trying to get a hold of the ATV and he still has a hard time riding it, but he loved it. Christmas day, we went to church with my parents and siblings, and then went back to their house for gifts and dinner and games. It was such a fun Christmas because all of us siblings were together for the first time in over 2 years!New Year's Eve: For NYE, we decided to have a party with some close friends, our family and my sister's boyfriend. We watched the fireworks show that my parents neighborhood put on and it felt like the 4th of July. Kennedy was riding around on her scooter in the dark, we were all on camping chairs and blankets. It was such a warm, nice night out. After fireworks, we played some games, ate food, watched some "world's Dumbest" and lit some of our own fireworks. Although Kennedy fell asleep before midnight, Liam was up and ready for some sparkling cider!

Playing with some Roman candles

This post is getting way to long, so I am going to make a new one now for January!
