HOLIDAY HAIR SERIES: Finale! Topsy Tail Updo

Holiday Hair Series || Topsy Tail Updo || Episode 4 || A Dash of Salter

This is the final episode in my Holiday Hair Series. My first hair tutorial series, ever. It was so much fun to put these together. I definitely have learned a lot about shooting video and I know I still have a long way to go. I want to know what you guys think though…are the videos more helpful or should I revert back to pictorials? 

Anyway, I love this Topsy Tail Updo! It looks surprisingly chic with hardly any effort. It’s what I wish every hairstyle could be. (#momlife am I right?!) It’s all I have the time and energy for these days. 

Bumpdate for you guys. I’m 23 weeks now, I’ve gained 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks and i officially feel the waddle coming on. I know the discomfort has only just begun, but it’s so fun that I’m showing now. It’s obvious that I’m pregnant and not just putting on the holiday pounds. 

Even though there’s been plenty of that too. 

Baby Grey is kicking all the time and I can’t believe how strong he is already. I’m hoping he is just a little lighter than Turner was (8 lbs 1 oz) come birthing time, but so far he seems just as big if not bigger. I’m starting to think about how crazy it’s going to be to have two little boys in diapers, which is giving me just a little anxiety. Probably more than I actually realize.

And yet, watching Turner this holiday season has made me more excited than ever to have another precious little human around. His enthusiasm to the trees, lights, snow, nativity, music, and giving has made my heart so full this year. He is so curious and eager to learn. His daily discoveries bring so much joy into my life. I can only imagine what it will be like to watch Turner interact with his little brother and they can learn together. 

Christmas is this Friday and we’re officially ready for it to arrive! Gifts are wrapped, groceries are purchased and we’re ready for a week full of cuddles, reflection, and love with our family! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas filled with joy and love! XO
