Summertime Sadness...

We are now in the 5th week of summer and I hate it... Ex moved to the state 4 months ago so now we share the summer, my kids are at his house every other week... I absolutely hate being away from my kids for a whole week... Every other weekend I don't mind so much, it gives me a break and some kid free time. I run errands, do my shopping and things I cant get done during the week. But a whole week is hard, I miss my kids. I should not have to be away from my kids until they go to college... Or summer camp, that type of thing... It's just not right. I have 3 more weeks to go that they will spend at his house. Then back to every other weekend.

Crochet Fingerless Gloves

I LOVE how these turned out!! I have been meaning to crochet myself a pair of fingerless gloves since before last winter!

I hate when my hands are cold and during the winter my hands are


Last winter I kept a pair of regular gloves in my purse all winter.

I made these with the intent to wear them inside,

all the time!

"No Poo" Update: I'm Shampoo Free

I have been meaning to post this update for quite some time. Especially now that I have lived in a totally different climate for over a year.

I have not used shampoo in 4 1/2 years... Let that sink in... No, my hair is not stinky, greasy, or dirty and I am not bald. I have long curly color-treated hair and it has never been better! Not using shampoo was the best thing for my hair!

Granted this method will not work for everyone, because we all have different hair types. My hair is not oily at all, its dry, this may not work for someone with oily hair.

My hair used to be frizzy with lots of static and when I wore it down I had to use a lot of moose or gel. Now all I use is conditioner, two different types in the shower and a leave-in conditioner after! I only wash my hair every other day and I usually rinse it in the shower if I'm not washing it. My hair is healthy, smooth and soft!

I don't have before and after pictures, but if you're familiar with the Harry Potter movies, think of the transformation Hermione Granger's hair had from the first movie to the last!!!
