{Life Lately}

Hi friends! Just a random, catch up post here. 

Well, I had fully intended on participating faithfully in the Blog-tember challenge...but life proved otherwise. I was inspired and ready to roll with the daily challenges, but life got so busy that I was rushing through the posts. I was writing just enough to get the post up, but didn't get to fully say what my heart wanted to say. I may pop in here and there for some of the topics, but I am not putting the pressure on myself to do every challenge.

Last week Mason had a 'crazy hair day' at school. We spiked his hair like crazy and sprayed it green with one of those Halloween hair colors. It's almost a week later and I still can't get all of the green out of his hair! He was mid haircut on Saturday when I remembered his green hair and had to inform the hairdresser that his hair isn't usually green! ha. He looked cute though...

We had the best weekend this past weekend! We didn't do anything special, but it was just one of those good ones. Friday I had a hair appointment. I went to a new hairdresser and fell in love! Her shop is in downtown Waxahachie and is such a neat building. Plus, I really really liked her. She's someone that I can see myself being friends with. And, she is awesome at hair color. I went from blonde blonde, to a darker color for Fall. It's almost an ombre because she let some of my blonde come through. I love it. This is the picture she posted on Facebook.

That evening hung around Waxahachie and helped Nate's parents with a few things. Nate's dad had back surgery on Friday. Saturday we took our little Gunner boy for his shots. He didn't even flinch and did really well. After his shots we went to the RV and Camper show in Dallas. We had so much fun just strolling through and checking out all of the different layouts. And it was just one of those days that made me so thankful for my sweet little family. And every time Nathan moved or spoke I just fell more in love with him. Sunday we went to church and it was amazing. I just love the Cowboy Church and how much it feels like 'home'.

After church we went back to Nate's parents house to visit and check on his dad. That evening was spent getting ready for the next week.

It's hunting season!!!

We just started a new study in She Reads Truth called Open Your Bible. I'm so very excited for this one. Friends, if you haven't checked out She Reads Truth yet, I encourage you to do so. This particular study is free on the app and always free on the web site.

Thursday we are leaving for the beach. Just Nathan and I. We are meeting four of our friends there for a long weekend. I am excited. Very excited. But anxious and sad too. We will be leaving Mason home with his Grandparents. It's an adult only trip this time. This will make 2 total that Nathan and I have ever gone on without Mason. And the first one was only 2 days!! 

That's pretty much what we have been up to lately. What about you? What's going on in your world lately?


  1. Great pictures!!! And you will have do much fun, bittersweet, but fun! Xo

  2. Awww, I love the hair! It looks so good on you! I am thinking of trying a local stylist very soon, but I am so nervous after my disaster of a haircut.
    I wanted to do blogtember, but I never got posts up like I wanted to, so I haven't done it. But I have thought about just keeping the list of post topics for future post ideas. :-)

  3. I know what you mean girl life isn't slowing down I've been really blog slacking. Love Masons green hair so cute. The hunting picture is def a keeper and glad your father in law is doing so well with his back surgery. Have fun on your trip

  4. Beach trip!! Whoop Whoop! I'm stopping by from our Blog Tribe dare! Mason is so cute! I love folowing y'all on Instagram!

  5. Yea September is not going as well as planned for me either. Ha....
    Love your hair, it looks great!
    Love the hunting picture.
    Your beach trip is going to be so fun. Post lots of pictures so I can live through you :)

  6. How fun that you did green for his hair! Yay for weekends away sans kid. Yes you'll miss him, but you'll get some good time with friends and hubby and you'll be relaxed/refreshed and ready to tackle the next week. That said, Mr. wants to plan a ski trip this winter, and I don't want to leave the kids! Yay for good weekends.

  7. When did Mason get SO BIG?! Ah! Stop growing so fast! But goodness, he is handsommmmmme!
    Enjoy this weekend away! It's so awesome to reconnect and then be SO excited to get home to your little man! You'll feel so refreshed, promise!

  8. LOVE your new hair! Can't wait to see more pics of it!
    And for some reason, I love that photo you posted with those rings on Mason's fingers. I'm a sucker for those cute little kid fingers. I just think they are so cute! (I realize this sounds slightly creepy but I just have to soak up Mason's little extremities before he turns into a big boy!)

  9. I love your hair the darker color!!! It is totally different on you.

  10. I am loving your Fall hair color. I want to color mine in some way but I just am so bad about the maintenance of color.

  11. I love those top photos of Mason! Also, that hunting photo of your boys - SO cute! You all are just the cutest family and really make me want to move out to Texas!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
