Today I am.....

Happy! Not about any single thing but I'm just in a good mood. The sun is shining, it's 59degrees & although it is still a hideous brown outside Spring has finally sprung :) Thus, I will share a few of the things that I am happy about today....





Yesterday was Salon Day. What girl doesn't love getting her 'do on. Both D. & I got pampered....a color & cut for myself & demineralizing, deep conditioning & a cut for my girl. She sooooo needed it. Being in the pool at least 3x per week wreaks havoc on my baby's hair. She was thrilled to walk out with curls rather than the frizz we regularly battle.



I am happy about my can of Enviga.....let me tell you I DO NOT believe it burns the extra 60-100 calories per day as the can claims. But I love the taste & the extra little kick of caffeine it gives me. I love green tea & I adore soda bubbles so this stuff totally rocks! Thank you Heather for bringing me that first can. Love it!


I am loving Planet Earth on the Discovery Channel. It is an absolutely beautiful series. I am not ashamed to tell you I have allowed my kiddos to plant their little bottoms in front of the TV all day to watch this. In fact I have encouraged them to just chill out today & watch TV for a change. It helps that we are in the AST (Alaska Standard Time) Zone so everything comes on so much earlier here. Have I said this show is freaking amazing..... If anyone is so inclined to buy me the series on DVD for any upcoming holiday in the next year, please know that it would be 'the perfect gift' :)


And last but not least, I have started tackling a job that I have been longing to do for ages, but I just couldn't seem to ever start~redecorating my kitchen. It is currently done from floor to ceiling (well almost) in an Americana theme with way more Longaberger than I care to add up. It's been this way for years....like 8 or more. And I am soooo bored. Bored with the Americana, bored with the colors & bored with 'theme decorating'. My tastes have changed over the years & my kitchen, sadly, has not. So a while back I decided I would start redorating when I found things I really loved. So I have started...it's going to be a long process but I am moving in the right direction.


First are my new dishes. Just came across them in the store. I love the color & how they fade from light to dark as you move out from the center (it's kind of hard to see this in the photo). And I recently found this incredible frame at a quirky little store here. Each of the colored pieces is an individual pieces of glass tubing. It really is beautiful. I have pick up a few other odds & end but I won't bore you with them...yet.Later gators :)

What a fun post! Your children are beautiful! Your daughter's hair is gorgeous! What does a demineralizing treatment do for your hair? Thanks for the tip on Envigra. I'm going to try it tomorrow!

Such a small world. My husband used to live in Sitka. His dream is to return. But then I'd have to wear shoes....

BTW...bought a six pack of Envigra. I'm hooked.
