I didn't mean to QUIT blogging

I didn't plan on quitting blogging. The thought never seriously crossed my mind. I knew I would blog less because life was getting crazy busy... but quit? Never!

But I feel like that's what I done.

Everyone now and then, an idea strikes or something happens and I'm all "Ooh! I'm so going to blog about this when I get home!", but then I get home and there's housework to be done, kids to manage, photos to edit, errands to run, show to catch up on....
and blogging gets pushed back. Again.

So, I'd like to remedy that. I want to blog again. Even if it's sporadic...

Maybe I can post some outfits again... the weather is definitely nice enough now to take photos outside. And I have pink hair now, so I'd like to share a bit about that too... 
Maybe I can post a bit about all the photography I've been doing lately. Or maybe I could update you on the kids. They both past their year and will be heading to grades 3 & 5 next year!

So, it's not like I don't have anything to blog about... I just have to find the time!

I hope you'll bear with me in the meantime! If you have any cool linkups or prompt ideas to get me started again, share them in the comment section and I'll be sure to check them out!

Hair Today Gone Tomorrow

Ruby has been begging me for months to let her cut her hair... to be honest, I thought she was just being dramatic (second nature to Ruby) and never got around to making an appointment.

A couple weeks ago she came with me to my appointment and by the time we left the salon, she had booked an appointment of her own. To cut her hair. Short.

"short.short... just like you, mom!"

Well, she didn't go quite as short as me, but boy does she ever look cute!! She was especially excited that she had grown her hair just long enough that she was able to donate it towards wigs for cancer.
I have a co-worker who has battled & won against this horrible disease and Ruby wanted to do it in her honor. #proudmama

I kept waiting for her to back out, or panic... but she didn't. She just went for it and I love her so much for that. I am raising her to be a confident woman, and she did this because it was her decision and she didn't care what anyone was going to say.  


I will be posting again with better pics... I just haven't had the chance to pull out the good camera this week.... I can tell you I will NOT miss arguing with her to wash & brush her hair!

Stained Glass Class

A few weeks ago a co-worker of mine suggested getting our department together on an upcoming Saturday for a "stained glass class" given by her sister-in-law. I said yes right away as it was something I always wanted to try! We had the choice between a snowflake and a star and we unanimously agreed on the star (since we'd be able to keep it up all year round!)

The big day finally rolled around and it was!

The class lasted about 3 hours and it really flew by! Good laughs, great company and our teacher was great! I highly recommend Trifolium Stained Glass to all my local peeps!

The best part was seeing how we all came up with original ideas for our star. These were our finsihed products:

(mine is the second from the top)

It was a great way to start the weekend and a great way to spend time with people from work outside of the office!
