Pinspired: 5 Minute Headband Curls

So I saw this picture on pinterest and it got me wondering if this trick would work on my straight-as-a-board fine hair.

Normally, I spend at least an hour curling my hair with a curling iron. But the minute I step outside its like I never curled my hair at all.

I love the beachy effortless wavy look but with my hair it either looks too curly q-ish or crimped.
This is the desired look.

I used this YouTube video to create the look.

I meant to take a picture earlier in the day when my curls were much more noticeable but I still like the hint of waviness rather than my every day straight boring hair.

I'll be using this trick all the time now! Thanks again Pinterest!

Weekend in Review

It was rainy and cloudy all last week and I was afraid it would but a damper on weekend. Noah's cousins came in town and the weather actually turned out to be perfect! We went downtown to city market and ate at Vinnie Van GoGos and walked to the famous Leopold's for ice cream!

My first adult night out :) it was well needed but boy is it hard to bounce back like I used to be able to!

Lily has discovered her feet. She can't seem to keep them out of her mouth!

Ava eating her snacky and watching her shows :)

Today we walked up and down River Street and just got done eating low country boil. Now we are all cuddled up for a movie before we say good bye to our fun filled weekend.

Photo Phriday :)

I drove the swagger wagon this week while Noah was in Chicago

Loving on my Lilly. And trying out the pencil sketch feature on a photo editing app.

This was what it looked like all week. Dreary and rainy. I hope the weather clears this weekend while we have company in town.

Jammin' to Sirius while I have the van. I kept seeing this commercial with this song wondering who it was. I thought it was Maroon5 but I got my answer on the way home from work.

Went to Target earlier this week and Ava found some fairy wings and wand :)

We put the wings on Lily :) she liked it!

Look at that precious sleeping face and the LONG eye lashes!

Being Ava and Lily's Mom

Being Ava and Lily's mom means:

➡Constantly singing silly songs all day long and looking like a crazy person in public when Ava asks you to repeat her dance moves.

➡Knowing I have to try a food and say its delicious before Ava will even consider it. (she gets this picky food thing from me unfortunately).

➡rocking back and forth while simultaneously bouncing up and down to get Lily to calm down when she's worked up or to get her to go to sleep.

➡being in the middle of catching up on Facebook or scrolling through Pinterest and having Ava take over the iPad and claiming it is hers.

➡I get good night kisses and hugs before Ava goes in with daddy for bedtime.

➡waking up in the middle of the night annoyed until I see that sweet smiling face of Lily's while she is tugging on her toes like it is a perfect time to be awake.

➡knowing even when I'm having the worst day I can come home and my girls can turn it all around just by simply existing.

➡knowing my days will be hectic and revolve around them and being perfectly okay with it.

These are just a few things out of so many things like makes being Ava and Lily's mom so awesome.

Being Ava and Lily's mom has been the most rewarding thing to ever happen to me. They bring a purpose to my life and they make me a stronger and happier person
with each passing day.

Some days are definitely harder than others I won't lie. But more than most days, I count my lucky stars for being blessed with this wonderful life.

Happy early mother's day!

And to all a good night.

Ten on Ten

I came home for lunch today. Ava was watching tv in this get up. She loves to wear glasses the wrong way.This kid cracks me up constantly.

Feed me Feed me! Lily loves her cereal. On to bananas and sweet potatoes next!

I don't know why I look so happy. I'm headed back to work.

Oh yeah. Afternoon snack time!

These flowers my daddy bought us. They are such a beautiful deep purple!

Summer classic. BBQ chicken, pasta salad and corn on the cob for dinner.

Paxx sits with his paws crossed. How fancy.

We took Ava to the playground after dinner. She was a happy camper!

Sliding down with daddy. Grandma and Lil watch in the background :)

Love the way Lily is looking at my mom here! Too cute!

Ah ha, hush that fuss momma gotta move to the back of the bus! With two car seats and a Mimi, momma has to sit in the back of the bus! Yippee! I get to watch Narney!

Capturing Ava - 2 Years Old

Ava has such a personality and at this stage does so many things that are just the cutest and makes me laugh or smile every day. I'm afraid if I don't mark these things down I'll forget when she did them. Since I don't have time to scrapbook, my blog is the next best thing.

My favorite things that she does lately:
1) Dance at any thing on tv with music or a song. She likes for everyone in the house to participate and shout "come on" while she dances!

2) She knows her Mimi's bedtime routine is to read before bedtime so she"ll hop on the bed, get under the covers, puts on mimi's reading glasses on and pretend to read

3) she will say hi to anybody and proceed to say "have a good day". If you could just hear her, it's too cute!

"Narney" = Barney
"chaulky mulk" = chocolate milk

4) every time she FaceTimes her aunts she always asks to speak to Toh-doh (my sister's husband. I don't know how she got this name from "Michael") and Moe-moe (Sarah's husband). She loves her uncles!

She knows a lot of her colors and some letters and numbers. She gets smarter by the minute!

So sad to think my baby is growing so fast.

Fashion Finds

Of course I've been getting a lot of my fashion feens from Pinterest lately. I've been on the hunt for these three items for bargain prices because I'm a bargain shopper.

1) Leopard print smoking flats

2) Mint colored denim

3) Jessica Simpson color blocked getaway tote (this isn't really at bargain price, but it's not the price of my usual Coach purses either so it's my justification)

Guess who found all three today in one trip? This girl!

Now that's a productive shopping trip :) Mint denim a la Target for $19.99, Dollhouse leopard print flats $29.99, Jessica Simpson tote $89.
