This is a blog about hair,makeup,motherhood, craftiness, the random lists in my head, creativity and my girly life.
I am a 28 year old wife to a wonderful husband, mother to the girliest toddler, resident of Texas, follower of Christ and lover of all things beauty. Those are the basics. Though I love to write, writing about myself currently is feeling awkward and weird. I have typed and written about 20x and it is all just awkward so I am just going to write a list of random facts you may like to know about me.
Most days I’m lucky to get any makeup on. Between two kiddos and crazy life I am lucky to get out the door period.
I have thick wavy hair that people have been envious of my whole life. Though I like my hair I wish God would have given me something a little bit more manageable. On days I style my hair from wash to perfect wave it take me almost an hour and when it’s long it sometimes would take more then an hour. I also can’t rock the natural look very well. My hair goes up in a bun quite frequently.
I cried when I cut my hair.
It was worth the tears
I used to be a parent educator…. it did not prepare me for motherhood
I do love being a mother… but like any parent most days I feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off (this is most parents right??)
I have lived in my house three years and it is about to go on the market and it is
JUST now the way I like it. (its happening)
In High school my youth group went on a ski trip and the girl were all chatting right before bed and I had taken off my makeup. One of the boys popped in to chat with us. I took off running because I was terrified of being seen with out makeup by a boy (ok he was the boy I liked, its still kinda sad though)
I love craftiness and DIY but almost EVERY single project I take on there is a moment when I want to break, throw, demolish the project and pretend it never happened.
I secretly want purple hair and a nose ring…. like when I was in college. You know what… I think I will go for it
I am the worst sleeper ever… I inherited this trait from my father and passed it on to my daughter… the only time I was EVER a good sleeper was when I was pregnant with my daughter. Thankfully my other kid is a pretty good sleeper.
I have fingernails of STEAL
It’s been about 3 months since I have deep cleaned my makeup brushes. Every morning I look at them horrified and try to do a quick fix and promise I will wash them that night…. I still haven’t. Maybe tonight, but probably not because I am feeling kind of lazy.
I am not professional makeup artist or a professional mom or a profession DIYer or a professional anything and I don’t claim to have it all together… but hopefully you can find something interesting in the things I find interesting and my hott mess of a life.
