You guys have been so helpful on my instagram (@birdalamode) about whether I should wear my hair up or down for family photos.
This is my first time doing my hair down since having bangs, so thank you for all your help.
I had a couple questions about my outfit so I linked it all here on this post. And also about what extensions and color I get, its Euronext 18″ Chestnut Brown, my favorite! And a couple questions about my makeup. I swear by this makeup its quick and easy and great coverage.
Thanks again for all the help and advice! Now wish us luck the pictures turn out lol 🙂
This summer we thought about moving, even put an offer on a home (the same home we put an offer in on last year, but they took down the listing) but we weren’t all in and another family got it. Which is totally fine with me. I wanted to move in and gut it. So now that we are staying in our home I want to do the updates I’ve always wanted to do.
So far I’ve done the kitchen, we finished the entire basement, and have decorated. I am now wallpapering and hardwood flooring the upstairs and replacing the carpet. Then I’d like to eventually like to move on to remodeling the bathrooms. Baby steps, but it’s a work in progress.
I feel good about this decision and about just staying put and being content. I love nesting and making this home our own. After all, I am the one who chose it. I love its bones, kids room layout and love watching all the progress.
Hudsons growing up to be such a sweet boy. I love him so much. One of my favorite things about him is how he is not embarrassed of me. He told me the other day to see if there was a lunch lady job opening at his school bc he’d love to see me at lunch. 🙂
We are currently trying to plan a trip for our anniversary (just Dallin and I) and he keeps trying to weasel himself into the trip. And every time we are alone (just Hudson and I) he tries to convince me that I should just bring him or stay back with him 🙂
When Dallin was in NY a couple weeks ago he told me to drop the kids off at my moms and to come out and meet him. We went to my moms and Hudson held my hand and kept an eye on me making sure I wasn’t going to leave him. I didn’t, I stayed.
He is so tender-hearted and hates being separated from me and I love him for it. I know he’s not always going to be this way, but maybe he will be and that’s totally ok.
Hudson still! really! wants a puppy. One day Hudsy, one day. I promise.
Tossed and turned all summer whether to have Holland go to 1st grade or repeat Kindergarten. Mostly do I want her to be the oldest or the youngest in her class? 3 out of 4 of my kids are summer babies and I have to make this decision with each and everyone of them and its so hard to know.
Holland has blossomed so much this summer, so I decided to let her go ahead to 1st grade. I also love that she is going to school with Hudson as her chaperon. It was so cute to see and hear his excitement for Holland to eat lunch at school and to get to now play on the big kid playground.
I hope they have a great school year together!
