6 Easy Hairstyles To Do While Running Out The Door

Posted on

Easy-Hairstyles

I know how it is to run out of the house and realize that you haven’t brushed your hair…or your children’s hair for that matter. (Maybe there’s a reason God has blessed me with little boys….)

I also know how tempting it is to hit the snooze button two, okay…five times before you’re rushing out the door with only enough time to make sure you have the same shoes on. But I know that any outfit, no matter what you have on, will look that much more spectacular if you have your hair done.

Here are six easy hairstyles that can make you look incredibly put together, but only take a couple minutes to accomplish. [Continue reading over at lifeasmom.com...]

Clothing Optional

So, I’m getting to a point where the belly is sticking out so much that hardly any of my shirts cover it. At work I’m constantly tugging down at my shirts to make sure I’m “decent” and not walking around with a giganto midriff. And the last two days have been BLAZING hot in Southern California. I am not a fan of hot weather ever, but it’s even more unpleasant when I’m carrying around my own baby heater. (Seriously April?! You are a spring month! I would expect this from September, but not you!!) I thought I would be avoiding the heat by being due in May. Blerg. Seriously wish that clothing was optional. If only I could stay home all the time, although I’m sure my family would object and make me get dressed. Dagnabit.

I know that normally I have some clever “verbal vomit” to put out with each post, but things have been so nuts lately, so I figured I’d just catch you up on my life happenings:

-I entered a black and white portrait of my husband into the fair photography contest. I’m really hoping I get in, but most of all I can’t WAIT for the fair to start!

-We celebrated two birthdays this weekend (my niece and my dad), so my belly is contently full of celebratory sugary desserts.

-We are making a hallway to nowhere in our house (long story…I’ll explain later), so we spent a good part of the weekend texturing, priming and painting. I’m beat.

-I am pretty sure I am giving birth to a baby ninja or an octopus. Either way, he NEVER stops moving. And I can’t wait to meet him. :)

Is Waddling A Sport?

I tell ya, if waddling was an Olympic sport, I would be a gold medalist. I try so hard to walk normally, but it just isn’t possible. No matter how I move, I have this awkward swaying motion. And also, I wanted so badly to pull a joke on someone when they asked me when I was due, by looking shocked/offended/mortified and then telling them I am most certainly not pregnant, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I guess by now, with the waddle and giganto belly, it’s pretty obvious that I’m “with child”.  Maybe next time…

Motherhood Success

This has been the first season that my oldest son has played baseball and we are loving it! I was a little worried before we signed him up that the schedule would be crazy, but so far it hasn’t been too bad. I don’t know what I’m going to do when he’s not in t-ball and the games are longer than three innings or when we have more than one kid playing a sport. GULP. I tell ya though, I’ve never felt such success at being a mother than when we come home from a game every week and I successfully get all the dirt and grass stains out of his WHITE baseball pants. Woot. Self-high-five!

End Of An Era

Okay, I realize what I’m going to say right now is going to make me sound really old, but is any one else super saddened by Blockbuster closing?! It feels like the end of an era. It baffles me that kids will never know what it’s like to go to a video store and roam the aisles for an hour trying to decide on something to rent. I have so many good memories of going to Blockbuster during college with friends debating which movie was the best and why our movie of choice should be the one to rent. I get it that Netflix/Redbox/Amazon Prime is so much more convenient, but it’s not the same. Am I alone in this sadness?! At least I didn’t get this depressed when VHS went practically extinct. Ha!

Can’t Even See The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Well, hello there! I absolutely and unintentionally took a break for the last couple of weeks. This third trimester kinda hit me like a brick. All that tiredness that I never got before caught up with me. Also, we have started redoing parts of our house, so for the last three weeks, my house has been in a dusty, crazy state of movement and construction. I’m 34 weeks now (in case you were keeping count) and when people are told how far along I am, I seriously want to punch them when they say “You’re so close!” Seriously?! Uh…maybe if I said 38 weeks, but I’ve still got a month and a half to go! Blerg. Please bear with me and my anxiousness to meet this little boy and not be pregnant anymore. :)
