Menu for 6/12/15-6/18/15
I LOVE my hair! I don't think I've ever been so happy with a haircut in my life! Usually I walk out of the salon with all kinds of product in my hair and curls that I could never replicate at home. This is the first time I've ever been able to style my hair at home as easily as the stylist did it for me. It takes a bit of extra time to get ready in the morning but it's worth it because this hairstyle adds so much volume to my hair and frames my face so well. It makes me feel so pretty and it's been awhile since I've felt pretty.
To top it off I get to spend today at the Tennessee School of Beauty for a spa day. It was my birthday gift from my soon to be sister-in-law. The package includes a facial, mani/pedi, and a shampoo and style for my hair! When I made the appointment the girl said it would probably take about five hours so Nana will be pulling out the pool for Bailey while I'm gone. She's going to have so much fun and so am I.
Vacation bible school is this week so I haven't been cooking all that much. It's taken me back to the days before Bailey came along when we lived in the apartment and our kitchen was... well, it was difficult. We ate fast food most nights for dinner and though I did buy things for the office like cereal and milk and sandwich stuff that's no substitute for home cooking. After only three days of fast food this week I'm really craving something homemade.
Bailey seems to be having fun at bible school. Yaya is staying with her class while Nana and I work with the 5-6 year olds and she's making a few friends. The first night she told me she had cookies and orange soda and played on the swings. The kid lives to play outside whether it's swimming, sidewalk chalk, picking flowers, or playing on the playground. I think she could run in circles in the yard (which for some reason she calls the garden, who taught her that?) all day.
Okay, time to wake Bailey. Here's the menu!
