February Life Update

Happy Friday!!! I am actually writing this on a Thursday while we are at the airport. I am soooo excited to see the kids. We just facetimed them and they were so excited when we said we are coming home right now! Eeeeeeeek! Tomorrow morning the kids have dance and gym class and I am super excited for a 3 day weekend (Atticus has school off on Monday!!!) My brother is coming in town from Utah and my niece, June, is getting blessed so they are having a blessing for her Sunday! We will probably go to this Balkan bakery we found online – its in Phoenix and I am hoping they have my favorite pastry. What are you guys doing for the long weekend?!

We have a VERY exciting meeting this week that I am soooo excited for! It is so hard to not give away everything we are doing at Barefoot Blonde Hair when I want to tell you guys so bad! But in April I will finally be able to show you guys!

The concrete is being poured on our lot and in a few weeks we will start FRAMING!! I am sooo excited. And we have an interior designer coming in to finish our Barefoot Blonde Hair offices this month so I am excited about that. I was trying to do it all on my own but it kept getting pushed down on my to do list and it wasn’t getting finished.

We are going to Whistler next week on a couples trip with some blogger friends and I am excited for it! // not excited to leave the kids again. This is a constant struggle for me!!! As soon as I get to work I instantly am like, “ugh why am I not with the kids, I should be with them.” or anytime David and I go on a trip with us two I feel really guilty. I know I shouldn’t but its really hard not to. I hate being gone when Atticus gets home from school and things like that. Even though I know they are in such great hands anytime we are gone.

This hairstyle I did without a mirror sooo I am slightly proud of it just for that reason haha. We were in the desert and I was feeling claustrophobic doing it in the car with the tiny mirror in there so I just did it outside and I was kinda happy with how it turned out! I really love random hairstyles that have a mixture of braids and twists and messy buns. I love when I get a minute to play around with my hair and try out new styles, it is always so fun to me.

  1. I feel the same when I have to leave the kids. Who do you leave them with? My parents dont leave close so it’s such a struggle. Do you have a sitter you trust?

  2. I’m obsessed with your hair!! so perfect! could you make a tutorial for it sometime?

  3. so impressed with the hair! Anyways, it must be so hard to leave… but your building them an empire whilst being away on most of these trips, and they’re super proud. You need to remember that! x

  4. Looking enchanting and princessy in this outfit! Beautiful photos! Can’t wait to see what you have prepared for us in April! Good luck with your trip and have fun with the blogger friends. Some time off is good for the soul even though you’d love to spend every single moment with the little ones, sometimes it’s more beneficial for everybody to have short time away from each other. 🙂
