hey, howdy, hey!
hope your weekend was spectacular.

i'm pretty consistent with going to the salon. my hair gets tangly pretty fast if it's not trimmed or dyed about every 6 to 8 weeks. it's my excuse for some me time and it's necessary, right? probably not, but i started getting grays at 20, and i'd prefer not to let them show yet. sometimes i dye it myself with old reliable loreal, and sometimes i like a splurge and get it done professionally.
my last hair appointment was in may, so my hair was hard to put a comb through.
lately i've just been medium brown. i've needed a change, but didn't want to lose length, so a color change it was!
i have a crush on red hair. i mean in love crush. it's beautiful. i always wished i was born a red-head like my dad.
i didn't go all red despite the picture. it does make my whole head look red. i still have my dark hair but with red highlights. super fun. i feel like all i need now is a nose ring.
this boy loves his daddy. and we think it's super cute when he puts on his dad's shoes and tries to walk in them.
we've been having some fun park days, even though it's crazy hot here! we shouldn't be able to call it october if it's 86 degrees out.
baby girl got some new shoes and loves walking in them.

who doesn't eat peas as a bedtime snack?
even though it's in the 80's, we still needed some pumpkin goodies to commemorate the coming of fall.
this is one of my new favorite pumpkin muffin recipes.
thank you the pioneer woman.
i altered it a tiny bit because i didn't have ginger, and i wanted to add chocolate chips...because everything's better with chocolate chips. am i right? well maybe not everything, but most things. so, if you want to try the original, follow the link.
