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 so.much.fun!


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:

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

WIN a crown from The Unicorn's Princess!

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." -Albert Einstein

 

I've known Ashley for a long time now... it's been years since we met through our blogs and we instantly adored each other. She is just such a beautiful soul... full of life and if we ever met in person, I'd be surprise if she didn't actually glow!


The years have brought a lot of changes for us, and now she's the mastermind behind The Unicorn's Princess... handmade beautiful, intricate and darling copper wire crowns for kids & adults alike! It's so inspiring!

Ruby LOVES her peacock crown... and when her little cousin Piper comes over to visit, she wears the gypsy goddess. What little girl doesn't want (or deserve) to feel like royalty. Just the other day, I finally got around to photographing them in all their glory! They felt like real life princesses!


Ashley is kind enough to give you the chance to WIN one of her crown's (winner's choice!)... you can gift it to a special little one in your life or keep it for yourself! 

Good luck!
