Be prepared, I am ALL over the place in this one.
I told you in my last post that I was working on my Housewife MacGyver goals and that I was going to line dry some clothes that day. Well I did it! I was surprised how fun it was? Weird, I know. It brought back good memories of helping my mom hang clothes when I was a kid. She would also hang sheets on all four sides of our clothesline and my sister and I would use it as a fort. It was so much fun!
Yesterday I stopped by Jo-ann's to pick up some supplies for an order I'm working on and thought I would take a look at the home decor section. Jo-ann's has awesome sales. Their home decor was 60% off!! At first I didn't see anything that I had to have and started making my way to the registers. Then I spotted this...
Not only was it a pretty blue but it had a bird on it! It was originally 24.99 marked down to 9.99. Now I love a good deal but I don't like to buy things just because it's such a good deal. I have to love it and it has to have a purpose, even if it's just to look pretty and make me happy ;-) So I hemmed and hawed. Then it hit me...this would be the perfect box to hold our remotes!!
Lily likes to "play" with them in hopes of watching Caillou. So having a place to keep them out of her sights would be ideal. AND it was the last one so that sealed the deal and I brought it home. I think it was meant for my yellow side table! (please disregard my lamp, it's a temp since Lily broke the one that used to be there)
Okay now for the most random part of the post...are you ready for it? Stop drinking all beverages as you may spray them across the room. Eating is not advised either.
I'm in DESPERATE need of a haircut/makeover. My hair has always been a challenge. It's fine and I don't have a ton of it. Read: no volume. I usually end up with something layered that resembles a mullet. Or I go short like I did here:
So I thought it would be fun to get something different this time. Try something new. And what better way to try out hairstyles then the internet. ;-)
So I took an awful picture of myself with hair slicked back and no makeup. I am totally putting myself out there by sharing this photo with you. It makes me cringe but I'm all about keeping it real. So here is the before...
And here is some of the hairstyles I tried on. I don't actually know if I like any of them but it was A LOT of fun trying them on. I even did my makeup! Oh and I used the website dailyglow incase you guys want to have some fun too.
Now you see why I advised you to stop eating or drinking before continuing? You're welcome. Okay you can stop laughing now ;-)
And so you don't have to leave with that last picture in your head here's a cute pic of my girls...
