Sunday Thoughts

I have been watching a new show called "United States of Tara" on Netflix. It's kinda crazy, some parts are definitely not kid appropriate but it has really made me think a lot. And also deprived me of sleep, but it was worth it. It made me have that Ah-Ha! thought about motherhood. When I was younger, I used to, I guess, take pride in the fact that I had to "grow up young". But I didn't really grow up. I took on responsibilities of adults but I definitely wasn't an adult. I have moments of realization from time to time that I am indeed considered an adult now. I don't feel like one, but I am one so I should probably be acting like one. I am a mother. I need to act like a mother. That probably sound silly, but seems like only yesterday I was in high school messing around and getting into trouble. Its crazy isn't it? How much life passes by yet it feels like it's been no time at all. Anyway, those are just some thoughts I've had recently that have made me realize I need to grow up. I've done some growing, but it needs to continue.

Anywho...we had a fun weekend. I'm gonna start with Hair Challenges.

This was Friday. Half updo that was a little twisted.

Saturday I got my hair cut so no 'do...but today I did this, which was inspired by.....
This. Her hair is much prettier and longer, but I tried my best.

We also had quite the Saturday. Nate had a Scouts thing at the Iron Mission park all morning which was fun and exciting, then we got a itty bitty break to do some cleaning before a big birthday party bash for one or Ryders friends.
His friends' mom rented a bouncy house. They had a blast
While they were there, I decided to take some time for myself. The parents and I went and had lunch at the always amazing Little Brick House, and then I went and got my hair cut. I'm trying bangs again. Probably cause I love my family. It was finally warm enough to eat outside as well, which I loved.

Family Dinner....I love family dinner

Family dinner again :)
I love my family. They rock. I also love the friends who came out and had some ice cream and peanut butter bars with us. They are such sweet spirits.
Anyway, a friend has shown up so I am going to go. Have a lovely night!


  1. I love that hair!! It's so pretty. I need headbands. I should crochet some.

  2. Oh man I wish I had your talent, I think crocheted headbands are adorable! I apparently need a hobbie :)
