{Wannabe Model} My Hair

The past few weeks my schedule has been completely just crazy with everything going on in my life. I barely even have time to be with my husband and our furbabies. During this hectic time I was a "wannabe model." I say "wannabe" because I am certainly no professional model at any means and for some reason I have been approached several times to do certain things. I thought it would be fun so I said yes. Who doesn't like to play with hair and makeup. So fun!

The first thing was a hair photo shoot for "Kharisma Hair Salon" a very upscale salon located in the Galleria area in Houston. I wish I could afford a haircut from there. They are sooo good. My talented photographer from Montage Photographers took the photos for the shoot. We took them at a dance studio in the Galleria area.

There was me and another model. I was the funky and edgy "flash dance" inspired model. The other model was the elegant chic ballerina. My outfit was really fun. I had worn black leggings, black cami, pink leg warmers, & a yellow knit top that hung off my shoulder. My hair was crazy big. It was really cool. The neatest part was how he got it so big. The whole process was fun to watch. He used zip ties to hold my hair up. Yes, zip ties! Never ever thought in a my life that I would wear zip ties in my hair. Mike was freaking out when I got home when I asked him to cut the zip ties out my hair. He was scared he was going to chop my hair off. ha!

The makeup was really awesome too. The makeup artist did a heavy airbrush makeup and warm brown eyes. I got to wear fake eyelashes again. I have to say she was awesome putting them on. I didn't even notice they were there! I loved them! I wished my eyelashes were really that long or I could wear fake ones all the time! I feel so pretty with them on.

When we got to the dance studio I was very nervous because if you know me in real life I have 0% percent flexible. I can barely touch my shins! And I was expected to do leaps and these elongated poses. The other model just my luck was a actual ballerina in the past. So I was really intimidated because I couldn't do any of that cool stuff she was doing. The only thing going for me was my cool hair do. The music started to play and we had fun. I have a great time at photo shoots, but I get so tired after wards because of the long day. Below are some pics I took of the make up and the front of the crazy hair. I will post the pro pics when I get them next week.

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.

The card that I got through Love them!

This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.

Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....

Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 

The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.

Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!

I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
