~Hey all…whew, so Sarah and I have been MIA…holidays and stuff!!! There is also a possibility of a dash of pure laziness. I think my last post was the day after Christmas…which was obviously the 26th. From that day…I psychotically took down ALL of my Christmas decor. I am insane. I literally started at like 11am, and I think I finished at 4pm. We’re talking EVERY item even remotely Christmas like, i.e,. 59739475 things, two trees, outside wreaths, outdoor lights, etc. I knew my kids would be going with my parents for a few days, I had the house to myself, and I just find it impossible to enjoy them anymore when I KNOW Christmas is over. Taking them down is just impending reality. It’s like trying to enjoy the flight home after an amazing vacation. You just kind of stew about all of the things you have waiting for you at home. I realize this sounds horrendously pessimistic…I think I need some therapy.
ANYHOOOOOOOO, my kids went to our ranch in Brady, and Hunter and I went to the Belk Bowl to watch the Aggies break our hearts yet again. Sarah and I got to meet Jimbo and meet a new friend. She has an album out and might be making her Opry debut soon…check her out on iTunes. Her name is Stephanie Quayle.
Don’t even get me started on basketball season. FOR REAL, if you guys could just stop smoking weed for the SEASON, that’d be great. If you won’t do it for yourself, or your mama…do it for the fans that have to witness this ****show…OR ya know, your teammates that are following the rules. We have possibly the BEST talent and we have guys suspended, and we’re losing. I canNOT!!!!! (Off soapbox)
~Hunter and I also took a VERY impromptu and quick trip to Vail, CO…he went for business, and I went because I didn’t have anything better to do. Hahaha…I was feeling very out of sorts with both of my kiddos gone.
Soooooooooo, let’s talk about my hair…I have been using Monet. I gave it a LONG time before posting about it because I didn’t want to just get on here and say whatever. These pics are without extenstions…just my hair. Here is my schpeal…my hair is no longer falling out in wads…so it feels MUCH thicker. I DO sometimes think it can feel a tad dry, but not too bad as I don’t trim it like I should. Here is who gave it to me if you are interested: Olivia
I have been using the Hydration System. I know there are so many wonderful hair products out there…what could they possibly be doing that Redken hasn’t figured out?? I don’t have the answer to that…I am just giving you my opinion since using it. Although I was given the product, I am not planning on selling it…nor will I be making any money if you decide to order…just throwing that out there.
~Okay, let’s talk goals for 2018. I am trying to just start with a few things…and hopefully I can share these things with you guys this year.
~Drink more water!!! I am so, so, so bad about this some days…and I have said it a MILLION times…but a hydrated body is better for literally errrrrrrrrrrrrthing. It makes for better hair, skin, metabolism, digestion, energy levels, hunger satiety….alll the things. So, my goal is at LEAST 64 fl oz per day.
~Stop eating things with zero nutritional value…so goldfish, Doritos, etc. Thank goodness wine has antioxidants. whew…
~Yoga at least one day a week–peace of mind, flexibility
~Start a prayer journal–my hope is that this will foster a closer relationship with God, renew my faith, and make God’s word seem more real. I just think everything becomes more real when you write it down. You have to really be present, and you can go back and see what it is you’ve written…more accountability. How many times have you said, “You are in my prayers!” to someone only to never really sit and do it? I think the intention is there, but life gets in the way…and to tbh…sometimes I fall asleep while praying. Note to self that using curse words needs to be prayed about!!!
~Last goal is to stop trying to prove myself to no one. I hate how I think…”oh I’ll be happier when I lose 5lbs, or if I could just be the mom that heads up PTO and volunteers for everything I will like myself more, or if I would make my kids do more chores they will grow up to be president” you know, whatever it is that you beat yourself up for or identify yourself as….it’s a losing battle. It seems hypocritical to put this on a “goals” list, but I guess I mean that goals are important, but be careful in letting goals mean never achieving happiness…or making yourself miserable to prove yourself.
We are all a work in progress, and being kind is the coolest thing we can do…to each other and most importantly to ourselves!!!
